How Does DOT Therapy Work?
DOT Therapy is setting a new standard for skin rejuvenation in fractional laser resurfacing. During the procedure we will apply a pattern of tiny scanned pulses of laser energy to your skin with a controlled laser. We customize your treatment, so it is just right for what your needs are. We can adjust the laser’s settings to tailor treatments for you. Adjustments can be made throughout the procedure to more accurately treat specific areas such as acne scars on the cheeks or fine lines around the mouth.
The DOT Therapy laser precisely creates thousands of microscopic holes in your skin, which induce immediate skin tightening and stimulate new collagen growth.
Am I a good candidate for DOT Therapy?
DOT Therapy can be performed safely on nearly anyone with signs of aging skin. For more information, make an appointment today to ask us if DOT Therapy is right for you.
What is the procedure like?
Prior to the procedure we apply a topical anesthetic to your skin to make the procedure more comfortable during the treatment. Intravenous sedation is not required. We will move the laser around the treatment area utilizing customized settings. After the procedure, your skin will be red, similar to a sunburn. The redness continues for a few days. By day three or four, you will experience some peeling as your fresh and younger looking skin appears. In most cases, your skin will return to its normal appearance in about seven to ten days. After the laser procedure is completed, a cold compress will be applied. During the recovery period you will apply a hydrating lotion to keep your skin moist and promote healing. If you are using our Oxygenetix healing foundation you will apply it immediately after the procedure, if you are using a mineral makeup of your own, it may be applied in 48 hours.
