DOT Therapy is performed by our doctor for patients in our region to provide their desired results with minimal downtime. the appearance of acne or other scars.

DOT Therapy is performed using the SmartXide CO2 laser to stimulate new collagen growth. This laser distributes the tiny “thermal dots” to the skin leaving the skin around each “dot” intact. These “thermal dots” penetrate into the dermis for the most effective, long-term results obtainable. This results in a decrease in sunspots, fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring and a fresher, more youthful skin tone and texture. This promotes rapid healing with less downtime.

DOT Therapy provides our doctor with the versatility to fine tune your treatment parameters and provide excellent results in a single treatment session.

Patients choose DOT Therapy because it:

After our physician performs your DOT Therapy, you may experience some redness, warmth, swelling, or tightness in the treated area, which fades within a few hours of treatment. Generally, you can receive a treatment and go back to work or to other activities without any recovery time. Because the light pulses are confined to tiny dots in the skin, much of the skin is left unaffected and there is a quick healing process; most people notice positive changes in skin tone and texture within a few days.
