Laser skin resurfacing treatments help reduce acne scars, wrinkles and the effects of sun damage on almost any skin type. They are a popular treatment choice in skin rejuvenation and the SmartXide Dot Therapy is a more advanced technique of skin rejuvenation that treats one area of skin at a time. SmartXide Dot Therapy is a fractional resurfacing treatment that will cause fewer side effects and presents fewer risks than traditional CO2 laser treatments. The SmartXide DOT Therapy system utilizes a ‘dot’ pattern to create thousands of microscopic perforations in the skin and leaves the areas around each ‘dot’ intact. The procedure is versatile, as it may reduce wrinkling, age spots, scars or acne; at the same time, the CO2 laser beams will tighten the skin by stimulating the formation of collagen. A single treatment of SmartXide Dot Therapy can visibly rejuvenate the skin. The recovery time after SmartXide Dot Therapy depends on how deep/strong the treatment settings were. In general recovery time takes anywhere between 2 to 5 days, which is minimal compared to the 6 months recovery time required by the traditional CO2 treatments.
