Many older people who are otherwise healthy are unable to completely enjoy the opportunities their good health brings them due to the visible effects of the aging process upon their skin. Tired, dull, sagging skin can make you look older than you feel internally.
The good news is that we live in an exciting era with advances in cosmetic treatments being made seemingly every week. There is no need to live with an appearance that makes you unhappy when a treatment like CO2 DOT therapy is available.
About DOT Laser Therapy
DOT therapy works by using what is called a fractional CO2 laser technique that minimizes the appearance of stretch marks and other types of scars that can make people unhappy with their appearance.
The laser helps stimulate the body to produce more collagen – an important building block of new skin. Not only does it help the body make more collagen, it helps shrink skin and improves skin texture significantly.
The DOT laser is somewhat different from other types of fractional systems that utilize a constant source of pulsed emissions. That is because the DOT laser system is the sole CO2 laser using pulsed emissions with two cutting edge technologies.
DOT laser therapy also offers more than just the conventional and interlaces scan techniques; it uses a certain type of algorithm to improve recovery following the procedure.
This algorithm improves the scanning of the area to be treated, which minimizes the temperature increase required for treatment.
Treatment can be customized to suit the needs of each unique patient, allowing for the use of lower settings for patients without severe stretch marks, while stronger settings can be utilized for those patients with severe stretch marks.
What is recovery like?
After your treatment, you may feel like you have a mild sunburn. Your recovery time depends upon what individual setting was needed for your treatment.
If you have only slight sun damage and minimal loss of skin elasticity, you may not require any downtime and can resume your daily activities immediately.
You will receive post-treatment care instructions to help you protect the skin that was treated. DOT laser therapy is considered to be a safe and effective in-office treatment that has little risk of complications and little need for downtime.
DOT laser therapy is a great alternative to conventional invasive procedures. We have used it with tremendous results. Contact The Plastic & Cosmetic Center of South Texas today to schedule a consultation appointment and see if DOT laser therapy will be beneficial for you.
