Deka Laser Resurfacing
Deka has invented the SmartXide DOT system that combines “traditional” and “fractional” resurfacing, offering an ultra-versatile treatment that can be tailored to the demands of each patient. DOT therapy uses microscopic dots to renew and rejuvenate the skin, minimize wrinkles, reduce facial scars and improve skin firmness.
How does it work?
DOT Therapy employs the latest fractional technology, which treats only a fraction of the skin at a time. The laser uses specially modulated beams of light, about the width of a human hair, to penetrate into the skin. These beams of light destroy and contract the old collagen within the wrinkles and incite the body’s natural wound healing process to create new, youthful collagen in the skin. This causes the wrinkles around the eyes to plump up, tighten and soften.
How DOT is Different:
DOT Therapy is a pioneer in the world of CO2 laser resurfacing treatments. Before DOT, many patients endured long, often painful laser resurfacing procedures with lengthy recoveries in order to achieve skin resurfacing. Historically, many procedures involved vaporizing an entire layer and surface of the skin, resulting in significant downtime, discomfort, and prolonged redness. In addition, old CO2 lasers could not treat non-facial areas like the neck and décolletage easily because the skin in these areas did not heal as well as the face. So how is DOT Therapy different or better? The DOT utilizes a ‘dot’ pattern to create thousands of microscopic perforations in the skin while leaving the areas around each ‘dot’ intact. This laser allows for the skin to heal more quickly from the edge of these tiny ‘dots’. The overall procedure is safer, faster and more efficient. Doctors also have more control to customize treatment specifically to the patient and even modify treatment during the procedure for various skin challenges or problem areas.
“I am so happy I resurfaced my face. I struggled with cystic acne for years. Before having this procedure, I would look in the mirror and see all the damage the acne had left behind. Now I look in the mirror and have a great deal of confidence.”
