I’m a 68 year old Irish male with fair skin. My skin is sun damaged with premature aging, solar freckles, actinic keratosis and pigmentation changes all due to the sun. My Aesthetic Doctor recommended the MiXto fractional C02 laser because of all the damage to my skin, and the potential of future problems the spots could get worse. I also wanted to look a bit younger! I had the MiXto procedure and after mild swelling with bronzing of the skin, I peeled for about 2 days, and after a week the redness was gone. I have received complement after complement about my “NEW” face and how much “younger” I look, (one lady at my church actually said that I looked Hot!) What a difference this has made for me! With smooth skin now on my face and a younger look, I could not be more pleased. I have been told I look 15 years younger, what a deal this is, with just a few days of redness and peeling! Worries about future medical problems with my facial skin have vanished and I now have a new face and a new life!
I have always taken good care of my skin but at 48 years of age I started noticing brown spots on my cheeks and puffiness under my eyes. I decided to take the step and see if the MiXto could improve my appearance. At my first visit they took my before photos showed me the reality of how bad my skin looked without makeup! I scheduled my treatment asap! The office managed my expectations so I was prepared for the worst, and experienced what I thought was an easy process. Within 4 days my skin was peeled and looked fresh and slightly pink. I was told to wear sunscreen and could apply makeup but didn’t really need it. My skin looks fantastic with one treatment and best of all my lower eyelids are not puffy anymore!
I have always taken great care of my skin but nothing was helping with the brown spots and fine lines on my face. I heard amazing things about MiXto skin resurfacing through my friends and decided to try it myself. The biggest improvement I noticed was the texture of my skin was so much smoother. When I went to Skin Clinic for my checkup visit, they were impressed with the texture but were more amazed at the tightening effect it had along my jawline and around my eyes. It’s been six months since my MiXto treatment and my skin improves everyday!
I had some dramatic improvement in texture and sun spots almost right away. My skin felt and looked tighter. The improvements continued for the next several months resulting in diminishing of lines.
“I was 11 when I first noticed I had more hair than other girls my age. I didn’t speak to anyone and no one approached me about it, probably because it’s such a taboo subject. I knew that kids on the playground were whispering about me but ignored it. As I got older, a little beard and a moustache appeared – in fact, I had hair all over my arms, legs, stomach, chest and bottom. It was sheer hell. When I looked in the mirror, I just wanted to cry. Last year I started a course of treatment using the IPL hair removal system, which works by applying light to the hair follicles to destroy the hair and lessen its chance of growing back. I had seven more sessions and my arms are now virtually hair-free. It’s been a dream come true. It’s such a novelty to wear a short-sleeved top not worrying about anyone seeing! Now, at 31 I’m making up for lost time!”
“By the time I was in my 20s, my hair had thickened considerably, spreading round the sides of my face, just like a man. If I mentioned my problem to friends, they would respond with: ‘Well. I had noticed…’ It was a miserable time for me. I never wanted to go out and constantly kept my head tilted downwards. I looked on the phone book and found a clinic offering a hair-removal treatment. To my delight, my mum and dad offered to pay for the treatment, which cost £900, for my birthday. After years of embarrassment and shame, suddenly the hairs were falling out and I had a lovely feminine neck to show off! It was as if suddenly someone shook the life back into me. I regained all my confidence and finally the old me was back. The hair still hasn’t gone completely, but it looks so much better. I feel as though I can meet people now and talk to them face to face. ‘When I used to look in the mirror, I would feel disgust. Now, for the first time in years, I can hold my head up high.”
“Having now completed my treatment, I am not only losing a great practitioner, I am also losing a great friend.”
“I would like to write and say thank you for the treatment I have received for hair removal at your clinic over the past year. Now I am at the end of my treatment, I would like to add how I feel it was worth the money and I do not regret for one moment having the treatment done, and to also compliment the staff on their care and professionalism.”
“Thank you so much for your kindness and understanding whilst treating my Rosacea . I hope you continue to find happiness in your career. Cheers.”
Thanks for looking after my spots!!
