Dr Chernoff’s CO2 laser skin resurfacing also known as DOT laser therapy is a procedure done in the Santa Rosa, California office that essentially rids the skin of unwanted pigment, unwanted blood vessels, diminishes age spots and sun damage, improves acne, and improves scars and stretch marks. This procedure improves the overall quality and appearance of the skin and patients report vast improvement in their skin.
Where on My Body can I Get CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?
This treatment can be done anywhere on the body. It is meticulous enough for the decollete and face yet effective enough on legs, arms, and larger areas of the body.
What is the Down Time and Risks?
This procedure is relatively quick and has zero to minimal downtime for patients. Following the treatment the skin will feel sunburned and the skin will appear red. The severity of sun spots, age spots and scars on the skin prior to treatment will determine how long skin will remain red. If a more aggressive treatment is necessary, skin may remain red longer. Patients may stay home from work or activities out of the house while their skin appearance remains red. Dr Chernoff’s office will supply all aftercare instructions on how to attend to the skin after your treatment. Skin will continue to improve in the months post treatment.
How Does DOT Therapy work?
A DOT laser is moved across the skin delivering hundreds of 0.1mm penetration points. These penetration points fragment the pigment which in turn breaks the pigment into small pieces which the patient’s own white blood cells carry away. This laser treatment improves the overall tone and quality of skin.
What Results Can I Expect?
Patients have reported seeing a 90% improvement on skin pigment and texture with fine lines appearing less visible. This treatment is exceptional especially combined with other treatments such as Platelet Rich Plasma that use growth factors to improve results.
