What Will DOT Therapy do for me?
If you have spent years in the sun, especially without adequate sun protection, then you know what it can do to your skin. Wrinkles, skin discoloration, sun spots, skin laxity may be reduced or eliminated with DOT Therapy. Also, if you have scars from acne or other skin injuries, then you may also be a candidate for this procedure.
How Does DOT Therapy Work?
DOT Therapy is the ideal approach for skin rejuvenation. During the procedure, your doctor will apply a pattern of tiny scanned pulses of laser energy to your skin. The DOT therapy laser precisely creates thousands of microscopic holes (DOTs) in your skin, which induce immediate skin tightening and stimulate new collagen growth. DOT Therapy is designed to improve the skin’s texture and tone and to fight fine lines, deep wrinkles, and acne scars
Unlike older laser technology, DOT Therapy leaves islands of healthy tissue surrounding the microscopic DOTs. This enables your skin to heal more rapidly. Afterward, your skin will be red, similar to sunburn. You may also experience some peeling after about three to four days. In most cases, your skin will return to its normal appearance in about five to seven days.
A topical anesthetic is applied to the treated areas for one hour prior to procedure. After the laser procedure is completed, a cold compress will be applied. During your recovery period you will use a prescribed rejuvenation kit to hydrate, heal and protect the new skin. This kit is sent home with you along with full instructions for complete care of the skin after treatment.
How many treatments are required?
In most cases, excellent results can be achieved in a single session. However, persons with severe wrinkling or deep acne scars may benefit from a series of treatments spaced about one month apart.
