Dr. Manolis can customize Fractional CO2 (DOT Therapy) to your specific needs to obtain optimal results. The treatment stimulates new collagen growth and tightens the skin. Unlike traditional CO2, downtime is minimal. DOT Therapy is designed to treat your face, eyes, neck, chest and hands. It can restore a more youthful look to your skin and, with proper care, can be maintained for years. DOT Laser Therapy laser is safe, effective and efficient.
THE DOT Therapy Advantage
The DEKA Smartxide DOT Laser has proven to be a breakthrough in skin resurfacing devices. Unlike other varieties of CO2 lasers that are ablative (they remove the top layer of the skin, the epidermis, and some of the dermis layer beneath) DOT is non-invasive, fast and efficient. While other CO2 lasers achieve good results, the skin can often be left red, raw, and prone to infection for weeks after the procedure is completed. DOT also provides a treatment alternative to areas of the skin, such as the neck and décolletage that require a less aggressive approach and the use of non-ablative method. Instead of removing the epidermis DOT Therapy sends pulses of light into the dermis, leaving the skin intact. Recovery from non-ablative laser resurfacing is quick and easy. It is notable, however, that since the light does not penetrate all that far into the dermis, improvements in texture and tone may be disappointing. The DEKA Smartxide DOT Laser offers the ultimate choice in skin rejuvenation with minimal downtime and immediate results.
With the DEKA Smartxide DOT Therapy, only a fraction of the skin receives the laser light. This is called “fractional skin resurfacing”. The laser utilizes a ‘dot’ pattern to create thousands of microscopic perforations in the skin while leaving the areas around each ‘dot’ intact. Very precise microbeams penetrate deeply below the epidermis selectively treating problem areas with pinpoint accuracy and without damaging the surface skin. Thousands of tiny dots/scanned pulses of laser energy are applied which promotes immediate skin tightening and new collagen growth. Wrinkles and fine lines, scars, and sun spots are dramatically decreased instantly. After treatment, the skin heals rapidly from the edge of these tiny ‘dots’ and silkly, soft new skin begins to emerge. The healthy cells in the untouched spots promote rapid healing of the entire treatment area, resulting in faster recovery time and minimal side effects.
DOT Therapy with the SmartXide DOT CO2 laser offers the ultimate in skin rejuvenation in just under an hour for most treatments.
The overall procedure is safer, faster and more efficient than treatment with a conventional ablative laser. It is ideal for the treatment of sun damage, brown spots, fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity/texture and acne scars. Not only does the DOT offer amazing results, but it does so safely and quickly with little downtime.
Q: What is expected after treatment?
A: Treatments with the DEKA SmartXide DOT has minimal recovery time. Results are immediate. Following treatment, patients may experience mild swelling and have a sunburn appearance which should subside within 2-3 days. Over the following weeks and months, the body repairs the deeper dermal tissues affected by the treatment resulting in longer beneficial changes often associated with a healthy and youthful appearance.
Q: What are the benefits if DEKA Dot Therapy?
A: DOT Therapy is safer than traditional laser resurfacing treatments. Because sedation is not required, patients are exposed only to a topical anesthetic. DOT Therapy does not require either injections or sedation. Dr. Manolis prefers this treatment due to the added control and customization as well as faster and more precise treatment. DOT Therapy is highly recommended for the treatment of sun damage, brown spots, fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity|texture and acne scars. Not only does the DOT offer amazing results, but it does so safely, quickly and with little downtime.
