  1. It isn't bad, but it is something you would want to take a few days off for. The treatment I had done was on a Monday in Phoenix & I drove to LA the following morning & spent the week...that being said, it was not an aggressive setting. On a good treatment for the face it should peel within a week...depending on the setting you may have a slight redness of the skin the following week or two. There is no bleeding or ozzing, but you will get the micro-crusting that will peel within a we
  2. Have u tried either lasers?I'm interested in fractionated co2 but am confused with the many lasers in the market.Total FX,re:pair,mixto,rhytec.......in your opinion,which one do u think its best for scarring?Is mixto the least painful of them all? I have had a mixto procedure (and I do work with the company). But from first hand experience, it was not a bad procedure. I did mine with no topical numbing, no pain med, no cooling device....it was alot of heat but tolerable. Most physician

  4. Make sure you do your homework before you have your treatment done. You will see results with mixto & repair for acne scars. The repair goes 1.6mm deep, but the mixto goes deeper than 200 microns. Have a couple different docs with different machines show you their pics. Most of the fractional co2's are similar with a few differences, but i can assure you the mixto procedure is less painful than repair.
  5. Most of them have similar downtime. It depends on how aggresive of a treatment you have done. I had a MiXto treatment done and it was not bad for downtime, but this is not a no downtime type of treatment like the fraxel. If you want the results with a 1 treatment type deal you have to put up with a couple days of downtime.
  6. You are right about the re:pair being used in studies the past 1-2 years, i just meant it was not available in many offices yet. However the profractional is not the only other scanner. Active Fx and MiXto both use a Computer Generated Scanner just like profractional. It is not a continuous motion scan like fraxel but it is a scanned pattern....the stamping method is on systems that every mtz is fired at the same time. With the Lumenis and Mixto you have a large area that is scanned & it
  7. Most of that last statement is false....the mixto is not a "cheap knockoff" of the fraxel. It is a different wavelength (CO2). Fraxel now has a CO2...the fraxel re:pair, but it is just being released. The mixto and also the lumenis active fx have been out for over a year. The remark about the scanning and all of these "knock-offs" using a stamping method is not true, alot of them use a scanner...Lumenis Active FX, Lasering MiXto, Sciton Pro-fractional, Deka SmartXide. when you are talkin
  8. It is similar to fraxel re:pair, but I have heard less painful and already available in US.
  9. Fraxel isn't the only fractional CO2 laser out there. Lumenis has had one since late 2006 and Lasering USA has had a Fractional CO2 in the US since May.
