Mixto CO2 laser vs Infini?

i like to know the difference between mixto co2 laser and infini . Which is better for acne scars? I've had fractional fraxel co2 before but didn't see any results. Is Mixto the same?

Fractional CO2 vis Infini or Intracel

We use fractional CO2 and the Infini/Intracel to treat acne scars.  Fractional CO2 gives the better results, but with longer downtime and more post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.  Infini/Intracel give less (but still good) results with much less downtime and much less risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Mixto is a type of CO2 laser which has different setting that can either partially smooth out uneven skin(in Fractionated setting) or more aggressively plane the skin/acne scars. Most CO2 lasers can do this and there is not much difference between them except what settings are used to treat the acne scars.
