CO2 DOT THERAPY
Skin rejuvenation under an hour. Triple effect procedure: laser resurfacing, collagen stimulation, skin tightening. DOT laser treatment rejuvenates skin, reduces the effects of sun damage, reduces undesired pigmentation, improves skin texture, reduces wrinkles, treats acne scars, and helps with other numerous skin disorders.
HOW DOES THE PROCEDURE WORK?
The laser enters your skin through millions of perforators. Our treating physician selectively controls the spacing of the DOTs and treats specific areas. The tissues untouched –remain healthy and this promotes an overall faster healing time. After the treatment of the upper layer of the skin, patients begin to peel (usually in 3-4 days). Thus, most of the fine lines, pigment, rough skin, scar tissue will be removed. In about a week, patients will see new pink skin that will testify to “years removed from your face.” Another benefit of this procedure is that it also treats the deeper (dermis) level of the skin. The laser penetrates to the collagen level, delivering the heat to the collagen cells, stimulating them to grow new collagen cells.
DOES IT HURT? A burning sensation can occur during treatment. Our center makes treatments for our patients as comfortable as they can be. The specialist will apply a numbing cream to your face to ensure your comfort.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
Most patients require only one treatment to see great results. Patients with severe acne scarring or deep wrinkles may require several sessions.
