DOT THERAPY CO2 LASER BOUNTIFUL UTAH
SMARTXIDE DOT THERAPY CO2
Dermal Optical Thermolysis is the latest innovation for micro-ablative skin rejuvenation! DOT Therapy is performed using the SmartXide DOT™CO₂ laser system, featuring the unique Hi-Scan DOT Scanner with Infinite Delivery Options for ablative skin rejuvenation with rapid healing.
DOT Therapy is the leading micro-ablative approach to laser skin rejuvenation. It can be used to improve texture, wrinkles, and blotchiness on the neck, chest, arms and legs but this should only be done by experts because the risk of complications, including scarring, is higher in these areas.
DOT Therapy is a pioneer in the world of CO² laser resurfacing treatments. Before DOT, many patients endured long, often painful laser resurfacing procedures with lengthy recoveries in order to achieve skin rejuvenation. Historically, many procedures involved vaporizing an entire layer and surface of skin, resulting in significant downtime, discomfort and prolonged redness. In addition, old CO² lasers could not treat non-facial areas like the neck and décolletage easily because skin in these areas did not heal as well as the face.
DOT Therapy CO2 Addresses the following concerns:
- Dyschromia (Skin Discoloration)
- Skin Laxity (Loose Skin)
- Fine Lines
- Dermal Lesions (Skin Tags, Warts etc.)
- Photo aging
- Acne Scars
- Blepharoplasty (Cosmetic Surgery of the Eyelid)
FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER
The SmartXide DOT™CO₂ laser removes layers of skin tissue in a fractionated method (columns of skin are removed, leaving the skin surrounding each column intact to aid in healing) to help reduce “age-spots” (freckles and liver spots), fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, uneven coloration, skin laxity, textural irregularities, dull tone, and a thinned collagen layer of the face, neck, and chest.
SmartXide DOT™CO₂ is the best treatment if you wish to get the most results with one treatment. If you have the ability to take some time to heal (7-14 days), having this one treatment is like having multiple other non-invasive treatments at once. It is also the best single treatment for advanced skin damage and wrinkling.
CO2 LASER FOR ACNE SCARS
CO2 lasers have always been very effective for acne and other scars and the fractionated CO2 is no exception. We have found fractioned CO2 lasers to be the safest and best single procedure for treating acne scars.
Other modalities can also be useful in the overall treatment plan, but DOT Therapy CO2 has supplanted everything else we use since it came along a couple of years ago.
Nothing, including DOT Therapy, is "miraculous" for acne scars, and one needs to have reasonable expectations of what can be done.
