Alternatives to Laser360™
Creams and lotions can be used at home, but they usually provide only a slight benefit and must be used indefinitely to maintain even modest results.

Other laser- and light-based devices work well, but they typically focus on just one aspect of skin rejuvenation (color, texture or tightening). They may be quite painful, have significant downtime and may not be suitable for all skin types.

Surgery may be indicated for extreme cases. If a facelift or other surgical procedure is recommended, the Laser360™ program can help you to get even better results post-procedure. You and Dr. Picerno or Dr. Cote should fully discuss and explore all options for your personal skin rejuvenation plan.

MiXto SX® – Fractional CO2 Laser

The MiXto SX® – Fractional CO2 Laser is a skin resurfacing treatment that reduces facial wrinkles and skin irregularities. Short, concentrated pulsating beams of light are shot at the skin, removing it very precisely, layer by layer. This treatment combines Carbon Dioxide lasers with a “quadrant” fractional technology and tightly focused beam. This causes immediate contraction and tissue tightening. When the CO2 beam of light comes in contact with the skin, it heats and vaporizes the skin tissue, instantly removing the top layers of the skin, scars and wrinkles to smooth out the surface of your face.

Treatment takes only 30 minutes and does not require anesthesia, just a topical numbing cream. Results from this laser are comparable to three treatments of competing laser treatments! You can address your face, neck, chest, hands and arms, and discomfort is only similar to a bad sunburn. This is a great option for people wanting amazing results in very little time.
MiXto SX® has been proven safe for the face, neck, chest and hands.
Treatment takes only 30 minutes and does not require anesthesia, just a topical numbing cream. You can expect to see results after just one treatment, too!
When do you see results?
Right away! During the procedure you can immediately see the skin shrink and contract. Once the skin is completely peeled, you will see additional benefits with continued results for up to six months as new collagen regenerates.

What are the risks?
Erythema (redness of skin): You may have some redness due to increased blood flow. It will gradually fade.

Inflammation (swelling): There may be a small amount of swelling lasting up to 24 hours.

Hyperpigmentation (tanning): This may appear after the third day following the procedure, but your skin will begin to peel, revealing healthy, youthful skin.

Who is the best candidate for this procedure?
Patients that benefit most from this procedure include younger patients with severe acnes scares, middle-aged patient with wrinkles and age spots, and older patient with wrinkles, age spots and pre-cancerous legions.


FacesFirst offers comprehensive laser and light treatments tailored to your needs. One of the most innovative technologies at FacesFirst is Laser360™ – a customizable skin rejuvenation program that addresses color, tone, texture and tightening of your skin, using the Harmony®XL System, laser platform already being used at our practice. This new use is focused on getting dramatic results in a minimum amount of time, so that patients can have newer, healthier, more radiantly youthful skin without the excessive time or cost associated with more invasive procedures.

If you are not ready for a facelift, but you are no longer seeing the results you desire from creams or topical products, Laser360™, may be just the thing for you. With Laser360™, in just 60 days, using three different technologies, you can transform your face. The Laser360™ skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatment reveals brighter, younger and healthier-looking skin, from the inside out. It treats fine lines, wrinkles and discolorations from deep within the skin to give you a lasting, new, revitalized look.

If you have recently had a facelift procedure, or are considering a facelift, the Laser360™ treatment is an excellent complement, helping to further enhance and maximize the results of a facelift procedure.

Laser360™ skincare combines multiple technologies to treat the most common symptoms of premature aging: color, texture and skin tightness. Laser360™ is different from other skin rejuvenation systems because it’s non-invasive and can be customized exclusively for you and your specific skincare needs.

Laser360™ uses three technologies in combination to provide total and complete skin rejuvenation:

AFT Intense Pulsed Light for Color
Pulses of light even out your skin color and reduce tiny broken blood vessels and other color irregularities.

Near-Infrared Heat for Tightness
Deep heating helps firm up any loose skin so you regain a more youthful, contoured appearance.

Pixel® for Texture and Tone
This precision laser creates thousands of microscopic perforations, which stimulate new collagen to grow. The new collagen improves your skin’s texture and tone to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The skin around each of these perforations remains intact, which allows the skin’s top layer to heal from the edge of these tiny holes very rapidly. There is virtually no downtime for recovery from this procedure.

Each technology is delivered through a simple handpiece that is placed against your skin. The treated area will gradually rejuvenate over the course of your customized treatment plan. As the weeks progress, you will notice more transformation.

The device that delivers the Laser360™, Harmony®XL System, has been cleared by the FDA for more than 60 aesthetic and medical applications. Laser360™ combines three of Harmony’s 10 unique laser treatment technologies to provide comprehensive skin rejuvenation. It improves skin color, wrinkles and skin texture to achieve outstanding results in 60 days.
Each laser treatment takes just a few minutes. During each session, you may have treatments that involve more than one of the Laser360™ technologies. Your exact treatment regimen will depend on your individual condition. Before you get started, Dr. Picerno or Dr. Cote will explain each of the treatments that are right for you and how long you should wait between treatments. During this visit, be sure to ask detailed questions to ensure you are well informed as to your procedure and its results.

Laser360™ requires virtually no “down” or recovery time so you can have a treatment and usually return to work or school immediately, and most certainly by the following day. You may notice your skin will be red for a few days after the procedure, but you can remedy that immediately after treatment with makeup if you so desire.

How long will my results from Laser360™ last?
Laser360™ is the ideal procedure to eliminate the discoloration and textural irregularities that make your skin look older. Even after the procedure, you will continue to age and be affected by the sun and elements. To maintain the healthy glow that Laser360™ can bring, patients may choose to come back for touch-up treatments.

Does Laser360™ treat only the face?
The Laser360™ program also works safely and effectively on the chest, arms and hands, removing signs of sun damage and other visible problems caused by aging.

Is Laser360™ treatment expensive?
Laser360™ costs vary depending on your treatment area and skin condition. Compared with individual laser treatments, Laser360™ is a very smart investment that delivers beautiful results.
