By William Ehrlich, MD, FAACS Oculofacial & Cosmetic Surgeon
The Frantz Cosmetic Center at Frantz EyeCare now offers the MiXto SX Micro-Fractional CO2 Laser, the most advanced laser used for skin rejuvenation. This new laser makes it possible for patients to have healthy, younger looking skin with minimal post-treatment down time. The laser delivers a therapeutic matrix of tiny beams of light energy to the top and mid layers of the skin with minimal discomfort resulting in:
– immediate shrinkage of damaged skin,
– softening of fine lines and wrinkles,
– removal of age and sun spots, and
– amazing results on acne scars.
Fractional means that only a fraction of the skin surface is exposed to the laser beam, leaving untreated skin around each treated micro spot. The beneficial effects of the laser beam expands under the skin surface to stimulate new collagen production across the entire area. Patients will see continued reduction of fine lines and wrinkles over the next six months as new collagen is formed.
In most cases, the micro-fractional laser treatment can be safely performed on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands. A topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment area prior to the procedure and treatment time for a full face is approximately 45 minutes. Although you will start seeing improvement within a matter of days, you will see continued reduction of fine lines and wrinkles over the next six months as new collagen is formed.
Dr. Ehrlich will discuss the new laser and several other procedures he offers at a free seminar in his Fort Myers office on Monday, June 6, and in his Naples office on Wednesday, June 15.
