DOT Therapy (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) with CO2 Fractional Laser is a cutting edge new laser treatment to transform your skin. The DOT Therapy can significantly improve the signs of aging and sun-damage on your skin, resulting in smoother skin with fewer wrinkles, fine lines and improved texture. DOT therapy can also minimize acne and other surface skin scars.
For mild to moderate signs of skin aging and photo-damage, DOT CO2 fractional laser is rapidly replacing traditional CO2 laser resurfacing because DOT therapy is able to deliver results with minimal downtime.
The procedure is done by Dr. Malik in after application of topical anesthetic creme and there is minimal discomfort for 1-2 days after the procedure which can easily be managed with over the counter or prescription pain medication. There is a downtime of 5-7 days, which means your skin may have redness, swelling and peeling for a few days.
For our patients who do not have the time to “hide” for 4-5 days during recovery, we have the option of the “Light Laser Peel” which is done as a series of three treatment sessions, two to three weeks apart. The Light Laser Peel has practically no downtime. There is mild redness following the light laser peel which can be effectively covered with our tinted SPF 20 BB creme.
Call our office for more information or for a consultation and find out what the CO2 fractional laser can do for you.
The DOT CO2 fractional laser treatment is 30% off at our Dallas office until 2-28-14.
