Laser Skin Resurfacing
DOT Therapy is a state of the art fractional skin resurfacing laser. During a DOT laser treatment our certified R.N. will apply the laser in a matrix pattern, by doing this microscopic scanned pulses of energy (dot’s) are applied to the skin. The controlled pixilated CO2 laser generates thousands of tiny holes in a wide pattern but leaves the skin around each perforation intact. This leaves the areas between the dots untreated and healthy allowing for a fast recovery especially since DOT Therapy does not leave a deep thermal footprint as conventional lasers.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Since this fractional skin resurfacing laser is so precise our Aurora dermatologist can treat many areas of the body safely including the hands, neck and back. Laser skin resurfacing improves skin laxity, remove acne scars, and eliminate wrinkles. It is truly amazing how tight the skin feels almost immediately after therapy.
Does it Hurt?
Approved by the Food and Drug Administration, DOT laser therapy is, in fact, safer than other conventional laser resurfacing treatments. We offer a topical numbing agent to alleviate any discomfort as well as our SynerCool cooling device. This system uses forced chilled air to cool the skin and minimizes any discomfort arising from the heat of laser pulses. Depending on the area being treated most of our laser skin resurfacing treatments can be completed in less than an hour.
As with any laser resurfacing treatment there are some pre and post treatment skin care instructions to follow such as applying moisturizers and limited sun exposure. To learn more please click here to visit our DOT laser Pre and Post-Instructions page.
