If aging, acne or sun damage has left your skin with discoloration, scars, lines, or wrinkles, laser skin resurfacing may help you restore your younger and healthier looking skin.

During healing, new skin cells form giving your skin a tighter, younger-looking surface. The MiXto Pro® Micro Fractional CO2 Laser is the most fully-developed platform available on the market for skin resurfacing, wrinkle and scar reduction. Dr. Kristen L. Biggs with Santa Fe Vein and Med Spa is the FIRST provider in New Mexico to use the MiXto Pro® Micro Fractional CO2 Laser.

The MiXto Pro® Micro Fractional CO2 Laser

The MiXto Pro® is a patented laser system which utilizes chopped continuous wave micro-fractional technology to deliver ablative laser energy with a 10,600 nm wavelength in a proprietary non-sequential "Z" algorithm scan pattern. One of the ways it differs from other fractional lasers is in this "Z" scan pattern, allowing the operator to deliver higher heat to the dermis while allowing for maximum intra-operative cooling of surrounding tissue. The result is a lower risk of side effects with maximum patient comfort. Additionally, the delivery of higher heat results in an improved cosmetic outcome with more collagen production, more significant skin tightening, and higher scar reduction.

The MiXto Pro® Micro Fractional CO2 Laser allows the operator to work in the broadest operating range, varying from soft ablation (toning, tightening and refreshing) to hard ablation (conventional skin resurfacing) while going through many intermediate steps to meet and satisfy all the patient’s needs and expectations.

How Does It Work? 

The MiXto Pro®  is a carbon dioxide laser that has been popular for more than 25 years with the aesthetic industry for treating various conditions including fine and deep wrinkles, scarring, uneven pigmentation and enlarged pores. When the CO2 beam comes in contact with the epidermis, it heats, vaporizes and instantly smoothes out the skin, removing the superficial layers of the skin, scars, and wrinkles. Skin rejuvenation occurs with new skin and collagen growth.

The MiXto Pro® Micro Fractional CO2 gives the operator more control of regulating how deep the beam penetrates, and how much heat it delivers. The high-speed scanner, driven by a patent-pending algorithm separates the skin into four quadrants, or “fractions,” skipping the beam from quadrant to quadrant while separating each strike by the longest possible interval. This process is repeated multiple times to ensure treatment of the entire area. Dividing energy this way allows time for thermal cooling of the tissue, less discomfort for the patient and faster recovery! Timeframes and individual results may vary from patient to patient. Compared to traditional resurfacing, this is a big advancement in technology!

The MiXto Pro® can be used on several different skin types to treat:

  • Pigmentation problems (sun spots or brown spots caused by UV radiation)
  • Fine lines
  • Deeper wrinkles
  • Textural irregularities
  • Surgical and acne scars
  • Stretch marks

Treatment areas include the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms. A single treatment of the face might produce dramatic results, compared to three to five procedures required to deliver more moderate improvement with other lasers. Two to three treatments of the neck, chest, hands, and arms are usually necessary due to the lower laser settings required on these areas of thinner skin. Facial treatments take about three hours, with approximately 60 minutes of laser time.


The MiXto Pro® Micro Fractional CO2 Laser offers one of the highest quality results from a laser resurfacing procedure. It boosts collagen stimulation, lower risk of side effects, maximum patient comfort during treatment, and simplified post-care.

The patient experiences minimal discomfort and downtime and will notice immediate tightening due to the contraction of collagen fibers reducing wrinkles and tightening loose skin. Timeframes and individual results may vary from patient to patient. Skin laxity is noticeably improved. The MiXto Pro® Micro Fractional CO2 Laser removes pigmentation problems, reduces pore size, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and other textural irregularities, resulting in significant textural improvement. New collagen production can continue for up to one year following the treatment, resulting in firmer, plumper skin.

Individual Timeframes and Results May Vary.

The MiXto Pro® Micro Fractional CO2 Laser is effective on skin lesions such as dyschromia (discoloration from sun damage and aging), and actinic keratoses (pre-cancerous cells that may be invisible to the naked eye). It is also efficient for the reduction of sunspots and age spots.
