Mixto SX Treatment Yesterday - Edmonton, AB

Went into this procedure feeling very nervous and it turned out surprisingly well. Pain was minimal! This is now the end of the first full day. Face is red and a bit tight but other than that there is NO pain. I think my skin is feeling tighter. I am 58 years old so while I am optimistic about the results, I do not expect to look 25 again. I am really grateful that Ultra Medic came to town and can offer such great rates.

Day Three:
Woke up in the middle of the night because my chest was very sore and itchy. Took some ibuprofen and slathered lots of numbing cream. Started to peel today. Skin looks very red and raw. I am glad I did this procedure but I don't know if I would ever do it again. It hasn't been too painful but it has certainly been uncomfortable and messy.

Day Four Very red in some areas and my right jaw...

Day Four
Very red in some areas and my right jaw / cheek area has blistered and some are open and oozing. Am now using polysporin antibiotic cream and feel quite concerned. Face is somewhat swollen and honestly cannot see any changes with regard to the tightening or wrinkle reducing as claimed by the Doctor.

Day Five.
Pictures aren't great but the red marks are the blisters. Is this normal. Chest is just starting to peel. Not so painful now that it's cracked.
Just need to know if this is normal and will it go away. Right now the blisters are weeping a bit. Would hate to have scarring.

Today is day eight. Still can't go out without a LOT of makeup over the red bits. My chest is especially messy and finally started using aloe vera rather that ointments as I need these sores to dry up and go away. I feel a lot better but LOOK a lot worse because now I have real scabs on my face and chest. Have not seen any difference in tightening but the skin on my cheeks looks a lot fresher. Still not sure if this procedure was worth it......

Two and a half months later. So my skin feels better but I have some serious scarring and the waffle marks have not gone away especially on my left cheek. I decided to go back to Ultra Medic and I am happy to say that the "doctor" was very much humbled I think. He had taken a lot of flack over the past few months and seems to be much calmer. He has offered me a series of micro dermabrasion sessions to get rid of the remaining damage.

I don't know that I would ever have such an aggressive treatment again no matter how good of a deal! I think the concept is great but the Mixto machine has to be turned down. More treatments, a slower process but I am sure...way less down time and less damage.

Very busy new clinic. I had to wait three hours for the procedure and then, thank goodness it only took forty minutes. The Doctor was very personable and apologetic. I plan on going back and I hope others can take advantage of these great deals! Now on day four and not so sure about this procedure. Plus I think now in retrospect, I wish this Doctor would have taken the time to explain this process FAR more thouroughly.
