The MiXto SX gives the clinical practitioner more control to regulate the depth of penetration and the amount of heat delivered by the beam. The high speed scanner, driven by a patented technology, delivers laser energy in a fragmented and non-sequential way that minimises heat build up on the skin and discomfort, whilst allowing more energy to be delivered than would otherwise be allowable.
This process is repeated until the entire area is treated. Delivering energy this way allows maximum time for thermal cooling of the tissue, less pain for the patient and faster recovery!
Compared to traditional resurfacing, which involves removing all of skin tissue in single continuous CO2 laser treatment, this is a big step forward in technology for both the patient and the clinical practitioner.
