"Bridget is amazing! She took her time to consult with me regarding my goals. She then offered options to accomplish them. Her work is sheer perfection. I have visited other facilities in the area and have never been so impressed. This is by far the best. The entire team is friendly and professional."- A.D. / Yellowpages / Jun 07, 2017

About Mixto Technology@headingTag>
The MiXto is a carbon dioxide laser that uses “fractions” or skips of light to target skin tissue. This technology enables the technician to have a great amount of control without harming surrounding tissue. The intervals of light provide a calculated heating and cooling energy that produce less pain and require less recovery time than other skin tightening treatments. This process stimulates collagen production, smoothes wrinkles, improves brown spots, and tightens the skin.
During/After the Procedure@headingTag>
The treatment area will first be gently cleansed from any makeup, lotions, or oils prior to the MiXto laser procedure. Typically, patients don’t find the discomfort of the MiXto to be intolerable, but an local anesthetic can be applied to ease discomfort. Treatments usually take 30 minutes and once the session is complete, a protective ointment is immediately applied to the skin. Although patients can return to their daily activities after their treatment, they should refrain from direct sun exposure to protect their skin. Some results are instantly visible, but optimal results will be visible within 4 – 6 months.

Skin Tightening FAQs@headingTag>
How is Mixto different?@headingTag>
What sets MiXto apart from other laser tightening procedures is its high-end technology that enables greater results in a shorter period of time. A single MiXto treatment takes about 30 minutes where as other laser treatments tend to be at least one hour. The MiXto is also less invasive than other laser treatments and offers shorter recovery periods.
What is Collagen?@headingTag>
Collagen is a protein found in the skin, bones, muscles, and tendons of the body. It provides structural support, strength, and elasticity. As we age, the production of collagen declines and therefore, leads to saggy skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and a loss of elasticity. MiXto stimulates the body’s natural collagen production, which helps to strengthen and maintain the integrity of the skin.
Patients will be given an Aquaphor® ointment to apply to their skin for the next several days following their procedure to ensure skin protection. They are also highly encouraged to refrain from outdoor activities that will expose their skin to direct sunlight. Frequent applications of sun protection are also very important to maintain results.
