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 skin, minimize wrinkles, reduce facial scars and improve skins firmness.
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.
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 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 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.

The Madonna Lift is the newest way to treat the wrinkles and saggy, lax skin around the eyes. We use the most advanced fractional CO2 laser known as the SmartXide DOT to treat these problem areas. The fractional laser treats deep into the skin around your eyes to plump up wrinkles, tighten the skin, lift sagging brows and improve the overall appearance around the eyes.
Using the DOT Therapy, you can now anti-age your eyes. This procedure will tighten the skin around the eye, help droopy and saggy lids and eliminate crows feet and wrinkles around the eye. Have younger looking eyes in as little as 2 treatments (may take between 2-6 treatments depending on desired results).
