Skin resurfacing and wrinkle reduction treatments are now quick and easy. It just takes a little of your time to look years younger.
SmartXide DOT fractional laser therapy is the latest technology for minimal-downtime skin rejuvenation. Your skin regains its tone during the treatment, and it can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, small and large acne scars or dark marks on area such as your hands, face and neck.
SmartXide DOT uses a fractional laser system that delivers dots of laser energy on a pre-set network of points, without removing the entire skin surface as with other systems. Skin redness following the treatment only lasts a few days, not months like before, and it can immediately be masked with cosmetics.
All the changes in your skin obtained with DOT therapy are permanent. Nevertheless, the beneficial effects will gradually diminish with the natural ageing process. Remember that smoking, alcohol, excessive exposure to the sun and poor eating habits all accelerate the ageing process.
You may experience a sensation similar to what you feel after your first day in the sun, as well as slight redness for a few days. You doctor will recommend the right creams to use to ensure your skin is moisturised.
There are no contradictions against repeating the treatment program with DOT therapy. In a few years time, with just a minimum time investment, you will still be able to retreat the same area for any age.
There’s no need for an injection or general anaesthetic cream prior to treatment. The only sensation you can expect is a slight “stinging” that only lasts a fraction of a second. Compared to traditional resurfacing treatments the DOT method now enables a significant reduction of after-treatment discomfort. It is effective and can be used for every part of your face, neck and hands, even with the finest, most delicate skin-types
DOT therapy reduces downtime associated with traditional laser skin resurfacing from weeks to days. DOT therapy ablates the skin with hundreds of tiny pillars of laser energy that penetrate the skin to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, which results in smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Fabulous!!!
By treating in this manner over a course of treatments you receive the benefits of an ablative treatment but the skin can recover at a faster rate with less discomfort.
About one hour in total.
Initial results are visible even after the first session. The total number of treatments required will depend on the initial condition of your skin and the end result you desire and will be decided in consultation with you Doctor.
Thanks to the DOT fractional technology, post-treatment redness only can be easily covered with cosmetics. The only precaution recommended is to use a suitable sunscreen for a period of time after the treatment.
The majority of patients observe increased skin tone even after the first treatment. You may also notice that your skin marks have faded after one single treatment, though two may be necessary to see these effects. Your doctor will work out the best program for treating deeper wrinkles. As the laser stimulates the production of collagen you will notice a progressive improvement of your skin for at least six months after your last treatment.
The DOT therapy treatment is suitable for everyone and all skin-types. Special care is only required for those who tan frequently.
Patients are advised to wear sunscreen for at least two weeks prior to treatment. Refrain from sun exposure as sun burnt or recently sun baked skin cannot be treated. In some cases the patient is required to use a lightening solution for two weeks prior to treatment to assist with results.
