CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing Frequently Asked Questions
How does Smartxide DOT work?
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.
What are the results?
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.
How long does the treatment last?
The entire face can be treated in as little as 15 minutes, with results lasting years given proper care and sun protection.
Is the treatment painful?
Topical anesthetic makes the procedure very easy to tolerate. Afterwards, you may experience a mild heat sensation similar to a sun burn, itchiness and dryness in the treated area as it is healing.
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 or ablation will quickly heal and you will be able to resume to your regular schedule in as little as 1-2 days.
