Rejuvenate Winter Skin with MIXTO Laser Lift

Through the winter months, the skin can begin to look dull and dehydrated. This can contribute to aging signs like wrinkles and sagging. In winter, you should protect your skin from dry air using high-quality moisturizers and remember daily SPF to protect against UV rays, even if you’re spending more time indoors.  A skin care specialist at FacesFirst can find the healthiest routine for your skin. However, even with a good skin care routine, aging signs can catch up to you. MIXTO Laser Lift is one option to rejuvenate the skin, boosting collagen and restoring a youthful look.

What Can MIXTO Laser Treat?

MIXTO Laser Lift is a fractional CO2 laser which works to tighten the skin and increase collagen, resulting in improved elasticity and fewer wrinkles. The treatment is especially beneficial for fine lines and wrinkles or drooping around the eyes, as the treatment is gentle enough for this delicate area. However, many patients also benefit from MIXTO Laser Lift treatment for their neck, décolletage, hands, or other areas of the face.

What is the MIXTO Laser Treatment Like?

Before your MIXTO Laser Lift, the treatment area is numbed. Then, columns of light and heat from a laser are directed to the skin. Most patients do feel some sensation from the laser, and the doctor can give you a number of medications to help control any discomfort. The process of directing the laser to the skin can be completed 30-90 minutes . When this is complete, Dr. Picerno or Dr. Cote will apply selected skincare to the treatment area with detailed instructions on how to best care for your skin, and you are free to drive yourself home.

One of the major benefits of MIXTO Laser Lifts is that the treatment can typically be completed in a single session. However, some patients benefit from multiple sessions for deeper wrinkles or acne scars.

MIXTO Laser Lift Recovery and Results

Immediately following MIXTO Laser Lift treatment, you will likely feel some sensitivity in the treatment area similar to a sunburn and have some redness, which typically lasts about 20 minutes. Many notice that the skin feels and looks tighter immediately, though the skin typically also feels drier than normal as healing continues. The sun damage skin will peel away over the next 3 to 5 days revealing more healthy skin. Special make up can be used to cover the skin and help you return to more of your usual activities

Though you will notice some improvement in your skin’s firmness and elasticity immediately after treatment, this will continue to improve. Most patients see the final results of their new collagen production about 12 weeks after the procedure. These results should last for years or more following treatment.
