What are the risks?

Erythema (redness of skin): the laser-treated areas have a distinctive redness representing increased blood flow due to the growth of the superficial tissue and collagen. It will gradually fade during the first few days.

Inflammation (swelling): Treatment with the MiXto system presents a minimal amount of swelling that can last up to 24 hours.

Hyperpigmentation (tanning): This is presented after the third day of the procedure but then begins to shed and reveal younger healthy looking skin. A personal interview and clinical examination will be conducted to obtain relevant facts about your medical and dermatological history, and any medications you are currently taking or have taken in the past.

Infection and viral risks: Patients are provided with both an antiviral and antibiotics prescription to combat these risks. The course of the prescription normally commences two days before the treatment and are taken 3 days after the treatment.
