How Does Deka DOT Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?

During the procedure, a precise pattern of laser energy is applied directly to the skin using a laser applicator. Treatment levels are continuously adjusted throughout the procedure in order to accurately treat specific areas. As the laser (heat) energy penetrates the skin, it promotes increased collagen production and enables skin tightening, for improved aesthetic results. Typical treatment areas may include acne scars on the cheeks or fine lines around the mouth.

Though traditional laser skin resurfacing and tightening is proven and effective, many patients find Deka DOT laser skin resurfacing to offer even more benefits, as the treatment affords our team the ability to vary treatment settings for improved recovery time and results.

The Deka DOT Laser Therapy Advantage

Deka DOT laser skin resurfacing therapy is setting a new standard for skin rejuvenation. Unlike other rejuvenating laser therapies, DOT therapy leaves islands of healthy tissue surrounding the microscopic treatment areas in the skin. This enables skin to heal more rapidly and minimizes skin damage. Patients are often amazed at how tight their skin feels immediately following the procedure.

DOT therapy is designed to improve the skin’s texture and tone, and can be employed to correct fine lines, reduce the appearance of shallow and deep wrinkles, improve skin laxity, and minimize acne scars. Time and time again, it has proven to be a remarkable treatment for tightening aging skin on the face, neck, and hands. This is the Deka DOT laser therapy advantage.

Ideal Candidates for DOT Therapy

DOT therapy is the ideal approach for skin rejuvenation. It is commonly used to correct and treat the following conditions:

  • Signs of aging on the face (including around the eyes and mouth)
  • Facial scars (including those caused by acne)
  • Aged hands
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Large pores
  • Compromised skin texture
  • Poor skin laxity

Because of the number of conditions which can be corrected with Deka DOT therapy, the treatment is ideal for a wide range of patients. However, patients with darker skin types may require spot testing before proceeding with a full treatment.

The Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure

DOT therapy is a great solution for patients looking to avoid the risks of surgery and anesthesia. Treatment is customized for each individual, based on findings and goals discussed during his or her initial consultation, in order to maximize results.

Upon arrival, a topical numbing agent is applied to the skin to minimize discomfort during treatment. Protective eyewear is worn by patients during treatment and all precautions are taken to maintain patients’ safety and comfort. The procedure itself takes just minutes, and can often be completed over the course of a lunch break (though multiple treatments may be required to achieve desired results). Some patients experience a sensation similar to a sunburn immediately after treatment, which may persist for 30-45 minutes. Some tenderness to the touch can be expected for about one day following the procedure. Once the area has been treated, a soothing ointment is applied to help mitigate any discomfort.

Following treatment, post-care instructions are provided, along with a post-procedure kit for at-home use, and a follow-up appointment is scheduled.
