How Does DOT Therapy Work?

DOT Therapy is performed with a leading-edge CO2 laser called the SmartXide DOT laser, manufactured by DEKA Laser Technologies. The DOT SmartXide laser is uniquely designed to give Dr. Kincaid full control of the laser resurfacing treatment with customized settings based on each patient's unique aesthetic concerns and skin rejuvenation needs. During the procedure, which is performed under topical anesthesia, the DOT CO2 laser delivers tiny pulses of laser energy to the skin, thereby creating thousands of little microscopic dots to promote skin tightening and induce collagen production.

CO2 laser resurfacing with DOT SmartXide laser is generally completed within 30 minutes, and most patients only require one treatment session. Unlike other fractionated laser resurfacing treatments, DOT Therapy leaves patches of healthy tissue surrounding the dots, which promotes a smoother, shorter and more comfortable recovery. Most patients are able to apply makeup within three days after DOT Therapy, and full recovery is achieved within seven to 10 days.

DOT Laser Therapy: Is It For Me?

DOT laser treatment is laser resurfacing that can be used to treat any type of facial wrinkles, lines or skin irregularities, including discoloration and scars. DOT laser micro laser peel is also safe for use on the sensitive skin around the eyes and the eyelids. More accurate, precise and comprehensive than other laser treatments, DOT Therapy induces a re-epithelialization process in the dermal layers of skin, stimulating production of new collagen for complete facial renewal. Following a consultation and careful evaluation of your skin characteristics and concerns, Dr. Kincaid, a leading La Jolla / San Diego fractional laser resurfacing provider, can help you determine if DOT Therapy is right for you.

If you would like to achieve a more youthful and healthy-looking facial appearance, please contact Dr. Kincaid to schedule your consultation.
