Microfractional Resurfacing

For acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and more!

Why Microfractional Skin Resurfacing?

Improve your skin!

The microfractional CO2 laser is an advanced resurfacing technology. It removes and repairs tissue with fractional technology and stimulates the formation of new healthy skin. This promotes long term collagen production and provides greater elasticity and support resulting in firmer, brighter, tighter, and more youthful skin. The CO2 laser can take years off your appearance.

The MiXto SX Microfractional CO2 Laser is a revolutionary treatment for skin rejuvenation that makes it possible for you to have healthy, younger looking skin with minimal post treatment down time. A single treatment can show significant improvement in skin texture and color while softening wrinkles. 

Microfractional CO2 laser skin rejuvenation is the treatment of choice for acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, and uneven pigmentation. It can also be used to remove skin tags!

“My skin was softer, my pores were smaller, and my brown sunspots were gone!

I went to Electrolysis and Laser by Lani to discuss the microfractional skin resurfacing treatment. I was very impressed with Dr. Laura and her staff. Dr. Laura was very patient, answered all of my questions, and made me feel very, very comfortable! Lani even held my hand during the procedure! The worst part of the treatment was the first couple of days but after my skin started to peel, I couldn’t believe the beautiful skin I saw underneath! My skin was softer, my pores were smaller, and my brown sunspots were gone! I get compliments on my skin all the time! Really I feel as if I don’t need any makeup at all! I am so glad I did this treatment, and would really highly recommend Lani and her staff for the best results! They are caring, compassionate, and followed up with my procedure to make sure everything went well.

Benefits of treatment include:

  • Safe use for all skin types
  • Immediate shrinkage of damaged or loose skin
  • Treatment of acne scarring and pitting
  • Removal of age and sunspots
  • Minimal “social downtime” (usually no more than 5-7 days)
  • Smoothing and softening of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reversing years of aging by stimulating new collagen growth
  • Works on face, hands, neck, and other body parts

How it Works

What does the the laser do?

Microfractional skin resurfacing uses a therapeutic matrix of tiny beams of light energy each about the size of the period at the end of a sentence. It targets the top and mid-layers of the skin with minimal discomfort while delivering powerful results without the harsh side effects and downtime of traditional CO2 resurfacing.

Patients typically see a 40%-60% improvement in the quality of their skin! Microfractional skin resurfacing provides the benefit of traditional, full-service CO2 laser treatment without general anesthesia, pain, and prolonged downtime.


You’ll meet with the doctor to discuss which areas of your skin will benefit most. We’ll answer any questions you may have, explain the results you can expect, and may prescribe medication prior to treatment, if needed.


The MiXto SX Laser Treatment is done in the comfort of our relaxing office. We will apply prescription topical anesthetic to the area approximately 30 minutes prior to treatment to reduce discomfort during the procedure.


You will feel a slight burning sensation similar to a bad sunburn. This may last anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours. Your skin will show a fine pinpoint-like pattern as a result of the therapeutic beams.

Process of Recovery

DAY 1-2

The fine pinpoint pattern will begin to disappear and the skin will have a dark tanned look.

DAY 3-4

The top layer of skin will begin to peel during normal washing, revealing newly rejuvenated skin with improved color and texture.

DAY 5-6

In most cases, your skin will have completed the peeling process. It will have a slight pink color which will fade in a few days. At this point, you may use make-up or sunblock on your skin. It is important to avoid prolonged sun exposure for at least 3 months.


We offer high-quality skin care products to help maintain lasting results. These will help keep your skin glowing for years after treatment. Ask us about follow-up care when you come in for your initial consultation and we will be happy to give you samples!

Before and After


The pain is different for every person. Some say it is not painful, while others have mild to moderate discomfort. A prescription topical anesthetic is applied to the area prior to treatment to reduce pain during the procedure.

Though the treatment is most often applied to the face and neck, it can also be used on the chest, arms, and hands.

Right away! During the procedure, skin contraction and shrinking are visible. You will see further improvements in color and texture when the skin is completely peeled. You will continue to see results for 6 months with new collagen regeneration that plumps up the skin.

Typically, only one! You can also opt for two or more treatments for even better results for deeper wrinkles and acne scars.

The microfractional treatment applies best to three groups: Younger patients with severe acne scars, middle-aged patients with wrinkles and age spots, and older patients with wrinkles, age spots, and precancerous lesions.

Yes! The new Mixto Microfractional CO2 Laser technology we use works on darker skin tones. Traditional CO2 Lasers could not safely treat darker skin without the risk of lightening or darkening the skin. This makes the microfractional CO2 an ideal treatment for anyone who wants younger looking skin!

The procedure takes about 1.5 hours for a full face, which includes topical anesthetic cream. 

We want you to have the best results possible. Many other medspas perform only one microfractional pass per treatment. We perform two microfractional laser passes with no additional charge making the benefits far more significant! We want you to be happy with your outcome!

You won't believe how amazing the results are even after a single treatment!

Erase sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, and a multitude of other skin concerns to give your skin a new beginning!
