If you have been seeing lines, wrinkles and age spots and wanted something done to help, but you don’t have time for a long recovery, we have a remarkable fractional laser technology you will want to know about.
It’s called the SMART DOT Laser (for Dermal Optical Thermolysis) or DOT Laser. Unlike older resurfacing techniques, DOT Laser places microdots on the skin with intact spaces in between. The dots have a thermal effect on the collagen which tightens the skin. The laser dots also promote new collagen formation within the skin, reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles and age spots and creating smoother, younger looking skin. The intact spaces left between the microdots facilitate rapid healing.
The laser treatment can be fine tuned by the doctor depending on what your skin needs and what your schedule demands in terms of recovery time. For most, there is some redness for a few days that can be covered with makeup and many people are back to work in a couple of days. Several treatments at intervals may be given to achieve maximal benefit.
This new technology also allows us to treat areas on the body that older lasers could not. Dot Laser can also help treat craggy neck skin, the decolletage (upper chest) and even the back of the hands. In addition to age spots, sun damage, lines and wrinkles, acne scars and other scars can be treated.
DOT Therapy can also be combined with other minimally invasive procedures such as Restylane, Botox and other fillers in the office to give you the maximum benefit without taking too much time out from your busy life.
