April 28, 2013 , Shaft Medical San Diego, the area’s leading aesthetic medicine practice providing the full range of advanced cosmetic procedures, now offers MiXto SX, the FDA-cleared new treatment designed to meet a wide range of laser skin tightening and resurfacing San Diego and La Jolla needs including the elimination of the loose skin and prominent veiny appearance of “Golfer Hands”.
Now there is a new non-surgical option for smoother, younger looking skin of the hands.
A person’s hands are one of the most exposed surfaces of the skin. Most people don’t think of applying protective lotions or creams to the area and therefore the hands are one of the first parts of the body to show signs of aging. Excessive sun exposure, along with natural aging, can cause brown spots, wrinkles, and loss of collagen and elasticity.
Now there are treatments available that will improve the appearance of photo-damaged and aging skin. Shaft Medical San Diego provides a non-invasive solution with minimal discomfort or downtime to reverse the damage and restore the skin’s natural youthful appearance. The MiXto skin rejuvenation system, with an optional use of fillers, can help turn back the time and not allow hands to reveal a person’s true age.
The MiXto is an innovative continuous wave carbon dioxide (CO2) micro fractional skin resurfacing laser San Diego and La Jolla device that delivers a therapeutic matrix of tiny beams of light energy to about 20% of the treated skin surface, targeting the top and mid layers of the skin and stimulating the formation of new collagen. Contraction of collagen fibers reduces wrinkles and loose skin and significantly improves skin elasticity. In addition, MiXto can be used to treat and removal other signs of aging including pigmentation disorders such as liver spots.
The MiXto’s laser hand piece has settings which are highly adjustable, allowing the surgeon to attain just the right energy setting that each individual patients’ needs. Combining the laser hand piece with multiple power settings, MiXto Micro Fractional Skin Resurfacing Laser La Jolla and San Diego enables more precise skin tightening and resurfacing. MiXto SX allows cosmetic surgeons to tighten the loose skin of the face, neck, elbows and knees without surgery. In addition, MiXto delivers more results in a 30-minute treatment than other laser devices accomplish in three or more treatments, all with less discomfort, social “downtime” and cost. It is also very quiet, unlike other laser devices.
MiXto SX fractional CO2 laser may safely be used for all skin types. Treatments generally range from 15-45 minutes depending on the area being treated. There is minimal pain or discomfort associated with the procedure. Often, the patient may experience a gradual heating of the skin as the treatment progresses. After the treatment, patients may feel the sensation similar to that of a slight sunburn and some tightness of the skin.
The innovative fractional skin rejuvenation technology provided by MiXto generally requires as little as 3-4 days of minimal ”downtime” due to a temporary mild redness of the treated area. Patients may typically go outside shortly after treatment with protective clothing and with adequate sunscreen protection of the treated areas. Importantly, once the new skin is revealed, it should be treated as being very sensitive to the sun, and must be well protected with SPF35 or higher to avoid recurrent areas of photo damage.
Other treatment options for the hands include filler injections, such as Radiesse, to improve skin tone and laxity and reduce the appearance of prominent veins on the backs of the hands. These injections are very simple and offer immediate improvement with only mild redness and transient swelling immediately after treatment. These treatments are relatively long lasting and impart a more supple and youthful appearance to the hands.
