Conventional CO2 laser resurfacing is associated with considerable ‘downtime’ because it
causes extensive areas of rawness that takes at least 2 weeks to recover and it carries a
high risk of complications such as skin discoloration and occasionally scarring. The MiXto
fractional CO2 laser is a revolutionary delivery system that works by applying CO2 laser
energy in a very narrow, scanned beam. Fractional means that only a fraction of the skin
surface is exposed to the laser beam, leaving untreated skin around each treated micro spot.
This results in faster natural healing and a shorter recovery time.
Some patients notice an Improvement in skin texture and colour after just 1 treatment.
It delivers tiny beams of light energy to the top and mid layers of the skin resulting in

The Mixto laser treatment is highly tolerable. Most patients will feel some stinging or hot sensation during the procedure and for several hours afterwards. Topical anaesthetic cream is routinely applied on the skin an hour before the procedure.
Treatment time for a full face is approximately 25 minutes.
Your skin will look red like a sunburn for about 2 – 3 days after the treatment. The skin will then peel from day 3 – 4 and this is usually complete by day 5 – 6 leaving new rejuvenated skin with improved colour and texture.
You will be prescribed a moisturising healing cream after the treatment. Makeup can be applied from day 3 when the skin is less red and starting to peel. Do not try to remove the peeling skin by wiping; let the skin peel off naturally. Apply a sunscreen daily during the healing phase.
