How does SmartXide DOT Work?
Laser skin resurfacing therapy is used to help the appearance of sun-damaged skin, smooth wrinkles and lines, and helps improve texture and firmness.
Two Treatments in One.
The skin is treated one micro portion at a time – repeated thousands of times. Each micro column receives just enough laser energy to vaporize the aged skin while also stimulating new collagen growth of surrounding tissue. It’s more than skin resurfacing, it’s deep skin rejuvenation.
Immediately after the treatment, your body naturally starts working by replacing aged tissue cells with new ones. Shortly after the procedure, you will notice your skin to be visibly smoother, healthier and younger looking. Results will continue to improve over time. Patients can resume their normal active lifestyle in as little as one day.
Is the procedure painful?
Topical anesthetic makes the procedure virtually painless. Afterwards, you may experience a mild heat sensation similar to a sun burn, itchiness and dryness in the treated area.
How many treatments will I need?
Thanks to the versatility of the SmartXide DOT you and your Clinician can decide how many treatments will be needed to meet your aesthetic expectations. Outstanding results can be achieved in as little as one session but will require a longer healing period than if a milder multiple session treatment is elected.
What is the recovery time?
Since SmartXide DOT is micro-ablative, recovery time is significantly shorter than fully ablative technology. Within the first few days of treatment, you may experience some redness and swelling with minimal pain. Each micro channel of ablation will quickly heal and you will be able to apply makeup on the treated surface and return to your normal lifestyle in as little as 1-2 days.
