The MiXto CO2 fractional laser is among the leading skin rejuvenation procedures available in the United States and has been proven very effective for treating skin laxity. Knees and elbows are some of the first places that show the signs of aging. If you’ve noticed the skin on your knees and elbows is becoming loose or wrinkled, you could be a good candidate for a laser resurfacing treatment. These innovative skin rejuvenation procedures can tighten and tone up loose skin, and erase many of the signs of visible aging.

Learn how you can get rid of loose skin on your knees and elbows by setting up a consultation with your cosmetic surgeon.  Your surgeon can discuss the pros and cons of the MiXto C02 laser and determine whether you are a good candidate for this laser skin resurfacing treatment.

Erase the Signs of Aging on Elbows and Knees

The elbows and knees are some of the first places to show signs of aging because the skin around these joints is stretched so often. The skin around elbows and knees can become loose and wrinkled, and may even begin to sag more quickly than skin on other parts of the body. Elbows and knees are also more exposed to the elements and can become dry or flaky more easily. Over time, the skin becomes weak and collagen levels under the skin begin to diminish.

Laser skin resurfacing treatments can help to restore the loose skin in these areas and make it appear softer, smoother and more toned. The MiXto CO2fractional laser is particularly effective for treating the skin on these areas because it delivers a very precise and targeted treatment on this very thin skin.

How the MiXto C02 Fractional Laser

The MiXto laser is designed with fractional laser technology, a very targeted treatment that can enhance and improve the quality of the skin. MiXto stands for the mixture between CO2 energy and fractional resurfacing. This treatment is delivered in 30 minutes or less, and produces results that typically require three or four treatments from other devices. Some of the key benefits of the MiXto CO2 laser include immediate wrinkle reduction and shrinkage of damaged skin, a noticeable softening of fine lines and wrinkles, and minimal discomfort. The MiXto laser speeds up collagen production in the body so that skin becomes firmer, tighter and more resilient.

The average cost of treatment with the MiXto CO2 laser is approximately $3,000 per treatment area. If you are having each elbow and knee treated, your physician may be able to offer you package pricing.
