How Does DOT Laser Therapy Work?
The therapy uses the SmartXide DOT® CO2 laser to make thousands of microscopic perforations on the skin. Thermally injuring tissues induces the production of new collagen deep within the dermis. This enables faster healing while reversing sun damage, reducing acne scars, smoothing out wrinkles and improving firmness of the skin.
Who Is the Right Candidate for This Treatment?
This non-invasive treatment is safe for use on most people with signs of aging and sun damage. If your skin surface has been blemished due to aging, injury or exposure to the sun, you’re probably the right candidate for this therapy. We encourage you to consult with us to find out if DOT laser therapy can benefit you.
What Happens During the Procedure?
Before the actual treatment, a topical agent is applied on your skin and left to stand for 20 minutes. The SmartXide DOT laser is then moved over the treatment area for at least 15 minutes. For most patients, a single treatment is all that is needed to get the desired results.
What Results Should I Expect?
After the treatment, you will expect to have a natural, younger appearance with significantly reduced sun damage, wrinkles, facial lines, acne scars, and brown spots. Your results will further improve over the next several months.
Why Is DOT Laser Therapy Popular?
This therapy is popular because it has many benefits such as the speed of treatment, minimal downtime, rapid healing, and the fact that it is minimally-invasive, safe for all skin types and lower risk compared to other CO2 laser resurfacing procedures.
