DOT (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) Therapy is an advanced technique to eliminate signs of aging using a laser. It’s a quick and painless process that will have you doing a double-take next time you look in the mirror. Here’s what you need to know!
How is DOT Therapy Different from Other Laser Treatments? DOT Therapy actually preserves the healthy tissue around the laser “dots,” which stimulates new collagen growth and prompts skin tightening immediately.
How Will DOT Therapy Improve My Skin? Just one treatment successfully targets the skin’s texture, tone, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, loose skin, and overall complexion. This procedure works not just on the face, but on the chest, back, neck, décolleté, and hands as well.
What Should I Expect During the Procedure? DOT Therapy is an effective way to rejuvenate your skin without the use of a knife, needle, or anesthesia. Since the laser creates intense heat, you will receive a cooling agent on your face about 30 minutes before the procedure. This will make the DOT Therapy far more comfortable for you. You’ll be fully functional and able to talk to the doctor the entire time. The laser will apply a customized pattern of pulses of energy to your skin, and within minutes after the surgery you will already feel the difference.
Is There Recovery or Down Time After DOT Therapy? After the laser has worked its magic, your skin will appear sunburned and feel more sensitive, and it will be crucial that you remember to use the proper care regimen. The tender redness you’ll experience for about a week is a good sign! It means that your skin is building more collagen and healing.
What About the Results? You will feel the procedure working immediately because your skin will build new elastic collagen even during the healing process. The most noticeable results will come after about a month and continue for 6 months. As long as you exercise attentive skincare and sun protection, DOT Therapy can actually last 5 years! It is by far the most time effective non-invasive skin rejuvenation available.
