Fractional CO2 Therapy for Vibrant Skin
The MiXto SX Micro Fractional CO2 Laser is a treatment that makes it possible to have healthy, younger looking skin with minimal post-treatment downtime. A single treatment can drastically improve skin texture and color while softening wrinkles.
How does Fractional CO2 work?
When the C02 beam of light meets the epidermis, it heats and vaporizes the skin tissue, instantly removing the superficial layers of the skin. The skin remodeling occurs with new skin and collagen growth. The result is a softer, less noticeable appearance of scars and wrinkles.
How much time does it take to undergo Fractional CO2 laser treatment?
A Fractional CO2 treatment takes around 30 minutes for a single treatment.

How painful is the procedure?
To maximize comfort, we apply a topical anesthetic and provide oral Tylenol. We also have nitrous or laughing gas available. Patients can drive themselves home, and the discomfort is similar to severe sunburn.
How soon before I can wear makeup?
It is best to wait 4-5 days before applying makeup to the skin.
How much time before I can be socially active?
Most patients are ready to go back to work the next day, but it depends on the patient and their lifestyle. Typical downtime is 4-5 days due to skin redness and irritation.
Are there any restrictions? Can I be in the sun?
Fractional CO2 treatments increase the skin’s sensitivity to sunlight, making it more prone to sunburn and sun damage. Thus, it is best to avoid sun exposure for a few weeks following treatment.
How long will the results last?
The results from laser treatment are highly effective and long-lasting, especially with a customized skin care regimen and sun protection.
Will I need to be retreated?
In most cases, only one treatment is recommended, but for deeper wrinkles and acne scars two or more procedures may be required.
What other treatments are good to combine with Fractional CO2?
PRP (platelet rich plasma) is the body’s repair and renewal system. Concentrated platelet serum is obtained through a quick blood draw that is then centrifuged to remove the red blood cells. It is then injected into the skin and applied topically for fantastic skin rejuvenation!
How much does it cost?
A single treatment of Fractional CO2 treatment costs $3,500.
For a customized treatment plan that helps you achieve the youthful skin you want, laser skin resurfacing is essential. Treatment is non-surgical and helps dissolve dull, dead skin cells that contribute to an aged appearance. For laser skin resurfacing in Atlanta, visit The Spa at NAPS!
