New MicroSpot Fractional Skin Resurfacing Laser Improves on Traditional
CO2 Lasers for Skin Resurfacing and Rejuvenation.
Fractional Skin Resurfacing
Innovative fractional skin resurfacing
technology combined with a tighter focal point reduces heat build-up for less pain and quicker recovery time.
In meeting the needs of dermatologists seeking less-painful and quicker-healing laser
procedures, LASERING USA of San Ramon, California, announces the immediate
availability of its new MiXto SX CO2 laser for skin resurfacing and rejuvenation. By
employing an innovative "quadrant" fractional skin resurfacing
technology and a more tightly focused beam, the MiXto SX laser delivers uniform tissue ablation to the deep dermis causing
immediate contraction and tissue tightening. A secondary effect is the production of new
collagen over the next 6-12 weeks. The precise micro-spot matrix driven by a proprietary
scanning algorithm keeps the longest possible interval between two adjacent spots, which
minimizes heat accumulation around the treated area. This significantly reduces pain
during the procedure.
The MiXto SX is the first medical laser to offer MicroSpot fractional skin resurfacing
technology combined with a high-speed scanner to deliver .3mm spots in continuous wave mode.
Other CO2 fractional skin resurfacing lasers deliver larger 1.3mm spots in super pulse mode with random
distribution. This method requires some form of anesthesia or tissue cooling. With the
MiXto SX most procedures are done without anesthesia and within a time frame of 20
minutes for a complete facial.
With older CO2 laser fractional skin resurfacing systems, the beam moves across the skin, one spot
after another, in linear fashioncausing excessive pain from thermal buildup and without
time for tissue cooling. Complete facial anesthesia is required. This aggressive procedure
results in long recovery times. In contrast, the high-speed MiXto SX scanner driven by a
patent pending algorithm divides the treatment area into four quadrants (“fractions”), and
skips the beam from quadrant to quadrant so that each strike is separated by the longest
possible interval. The process is repeated until the entire area is treated. Dividing the
laser energy in this manner allows maximum time for thermal cooling of the tissue.
“I normally don’t need to use any anesthesia when I perform fractional skin resurfacing
at a mild-to-moderate intensity because the heat is much more diffused across the whole
surface," comments Daniel Cassuto, M.D., a professor of plastic surgery at the University
of Catania in Italy. "And in those instances when I need to perform more aggressive
treatments, I prescribe an over-the-counter analgesic tablet one hour before the
A lower level of thermal burn permits quicker recovery so that patients can resume their
normal lifestyle with one week, and women can apply makeup within 48 hours after
In addition to speeding recovery, LASERING USA’s MiXto SX CO2 laser hastens a
return on investment. At approximately $73,500, the cost-benefit relationship of the
MiXto SX laser exceeds that of competing technologies. Large-spot CO2 fractional skin resurfacing
lasers cost more than $90,000 and fractional skin resurfacing
near-infrared non-ablative lasers (which are much less powerful) can approach $100,000. Coupled with the ability to perform
resurfacing and rejuvenating procedures in less time, often requiring only one visit, the
MiXto SX can quickly pay for itself.
The MiXto SX CO2 laser places infinite control into the surgeon’s hand by virtue of its
use of fractional skin resurfacing laser technology to carefully regulate the depth of penetration and the
amount of heat delivered by the beam.
“If some areas require deeper treatment during the same sitting, you can easily switch to
traditional resurfacing with a touch of a button,” adds Dr. Cassuto. “Treatment is also
safe for the hands and the chest area.”
Such flexibility allows for the ideal compromise between non-ablative and ablative
methods. With specialized optional accessories, the MiXto SX system can be used for a
broad range of clinical applications including offices, surgery centers and hospitals.
In meeting all FDA 510K requirements, LASERING USA’s MiXto SX CO2 laser is now
available to any dermatologist wishing to increase patient turnover time with the help of
new technology. An initial low cost compared with many other laser systems facilitates a
"In my hands, I believe the Slim MiXto SX CO2 laser is the best fractional skin resurfacing device
currently on the market," concludes Cassuto. "To date, I have more than 100 cases and
everyone has been enthusiastic."
