CO2 Laser Resurfacing Treatment
The DEKA SmartXide DOT™ allows our physicians to customize each treatment to the individual client. It has the optimal "microdot" size which helps optimize results. This being said, the treatments are most comfortable for you, the client.
The laser sends tiny shafts of light into the deeper layers of the skin. The skin then repairs itself by pushing out the old sun damaged skin and replacing it with new skin. Heat from the laser also stimulates existing collagen.
You will see immediate results after the treatment, with full results in 3-6 months. After your skin heals, you will see fewer lines, less blotchiness, and more glow.
Dependent on factors such as how well you protect your skin from the sun and genetics, general health, smoking, changes in weight, etc., it is possible the effects will last for several years. 1-2 deeper treatments, or 3-4 less intensive treatments, followed by a "maintenance" treatment every 12-18 months is beneficial to maintain the effects.
