CO2/DOT (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) laser resurfacing is a non-surgical treatment that works by removing the thin outer layer of the skin (epidermis) and heating the underlying skin (dermis). This stimulates the growth of new collagen fibers. As the epidermis heals and regrows, the treated skin appears clearer, smoother and tighter.
The CO2/DOT laser resurfacing treatment is designed to resurface and rebuild the top layers of the skin while heating and healing the underlying skin. This highly effective laser will reduce wrinkles, age spots, scars, pores while leaving you with a refreshed glow. This treatment can range in downtime and a consultation is required.
CO2/DOT lasers are an ideal method for evening skin tone and texture, reducing pigmentation irregularities, and improving fine to moderate lines and wrinkles.
CO2/DOT laser treatments work by removing columns of skin, while leaving behind areas of intact skin. The tiny areas treated by the laser stimulate a healing response, activating collagen production and bringing growth factors to the skin. The untreated areas of the skin allow for a faster healing time. Generally, the CO2/DOT laser treats anywhere from 25-95% of the surface of the skin with these micro-columns with 35-65% of the surface area being the most common treatment. This can lead to a significant improvement in both superficial and deep lines and acne scars and generally leads to a brighter, clearer complexion.
