SmartXide DOT CO2 Laser
Traditional laser facial treatments operate by applying pulses of laser energy to the skin. Although this is an effective solution for the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, the intensity of these older laser treatments cannot be adequately adjusted, so they are unsuitable for some regions of the face or skin types.
DOT Laser treatment effectively addresses multiple signs of aging such as lines, wrinkles and loss of elasticity but is much less painful than traditional treatments. It also treats large pores, acne scars and hyperpigmentation. DOT Laser treatment is suitable for use on a wider variety of skin types and treatment areas. The number of sessions required will depend on the patient’s goals and laser tolerance.
Laser Skin Resurfacing With DOT Therapy
The SmartXide DOT CO2 Laser holds many benefits over traditional treatments for rejuvenating facial skin. Laser therapy was traditionally recommended for areas with supporting tissue, such as the cheeks, because of the ablative nature of the treatment. With its innovative technology, the SmartXide DOT CO2 Laser provides a wider range of treatment options.
The SmartXide DOT CO2 Laser is adjustable to different skin densities, so it produces beautiful and affordable results on delicate areas like the eyelids, neck and décolletage. This is an excellent choice for people wanting to avoid more expensive or invasive interventions. Targeted areas visibly tighten during the treatment, and results will continue to improve over six months as collagen production increases.
Previously, people with darker pigmentation have been advised to avoid some facial rejuvenation treatments, as the earlier technology risked permanently damaging or discoloring the skin. The SmartXide DOT CO2 Laser is adjustable to the skin type of any individual, providing more patients with access to rejuvenating treatments.
Advanced CO2 Laser for Scar Treatment
Scars from an accident or injury can serve as an ever-present reminder of a painful period in life. Scarring from acne can be just as detrimental to your confidence and sense of wellbeing as those resulting from trauma. Traditional treatments for facial scarring are ablative, meaning that lasers deeply penetrate the skin. This results in the removal of the top layer of skin and can be quite painful with a significant recovery period.
The SmartXide DOT CO2 Laser is a non-ablative treatment, which provides a suitable alternative to patients who find other laser treatments too invasive. The DOT technology stimulates tissue in thousands of microscopic targets at once without causing damage to the surrounding area. Only mild discomfort is experienced during the one-hour procedure, with a significantly reduced healing time.
