Ultimate Skin Improving Treatment – Dermal Optical Thermolysis (DOT) Laser TherapyDOT Laser Therapy is an extremely effective treatment for improving skin anywhere on the face or body. It can:
- Improve skin quality, texture and large pores
- Decrease blood vessels
- Improve acne
- Reduce skin pigment
- Diminish age spots and sun damage
- Improve scars and stretch marks
How Does DOT Laser Therapy Work?
Once the procedure begins, the laser will place a pattern of tiny scanned energy pulses on the skin. It will generate many microscopic holes, tightening the skin and generating new collagen growth right away.
What is DOT Laser Therapy Recovery Like?
Patients may feel as if they have a sunburn following treatment. The recovery time will depend on the setting used for treatment. There may be no downtime required following treatment for individuals with minimal sun damage and only a small decline in skin elasticity; work and other activities may be resumed right away.
For those with severe sun damage, wrinkles, stretch marks or age spots, more aggressive treatments may require one to three days of recovery time. Aggressive treatments may cause a moderate sunburn-like appearance. Based on how patients feel regarding their appearance will determine how soon they return to their routines. Aftercare instructions will be provided to help you care for your treated skin. DOT therapy is a highly effective, quick, in-office procedure that involves minimal recovery time with minimal risk for complications.
Some Results Following DOT Therapy Include:
- Brighter new skin
- Decrease in pore size
- Decrease in scars, including acne scarring or stretch marks

Is DOT Therapy Safe?
DOT Therapy can be safer than most cosmetic surgeries and can be more efficient than injectables such as dermal fillers or Botox. Patient sedation is not necessary as a topical anesthetic is used during treatment. DOT Therapy can also be safe for patients with delicate skin types.
