What is DOT Therapy?
DOT Therapy (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) is a fresh new way to transform skin and enhance its overall appearance. DOT Therapy can reverse the appearance of aged or sun-damaged skin. Because DOT Therapy delivers the desired outcome with minimal downtime, it is rapidly gaining popularity as the treatment of choice for mild to moderate signs of photo damage.
How Does DOT Therapy Work?
DOT Therapy is setting a new standard in laser skin resurfacing. During the procedure, your doctor will apply a pattern of tiny scanned pulses of laser energy to your skin with a controlled laser. The DOT procedure is customized to your skin by your doctor. The doctor can adjust the laser’s settings to tailor treatment and obtain the best results for you. Adjustments can be made throughout the procedure to more accurately treat specific areas such as the cheeks or around the mouth.
The DOT Therapy laser precisely creates thousands of microscopic holes (DOT’s) in your skin, which induce skin
tightening and stimulate new collagen growth. Patients are often amazed at how tight their skin feels immediately after
the procedure. DOT Therapy is designed to improve the skin’s texture and tone.
Unlike other laser resurfacing technologies, DOT Therapy leaves islands of healthy tissue surrounding the microscopic DOTs. This enables your skin to heal more rapidly and minimizes overall damage.
