Most people understand only too well the damage that the sun’s UV rays can do to their skin. While it’s tempting to enjoy a relaxing nap outside on a summer’s day, those warming sunbeams are actually getting to work in the worst possible way, penetrating the skin and breaking down its elasticity.
The result? Skin that looks discolored and prematurely aged. When combined with other factors such as smoking, poor diet and heavy drinking, it’s a recipe for skin disaster!
Reversing the Effects of Sun Damage
Fortunately, if you’ve spent rather too much time soaking up the sun in the past, there is a way you can improve the appearance of your skin.
DOT therapy is a form of laser treatment that is used on sun-damaged skin to help rejuvenate and smooth even very uneven skin tone. The results are instantly noticeable, and best of all, most treatments take under an hour to complete… which means that you can easily book it for your lunch hour.
How Does DOT Therapy Work?
DOT therapy is fast becoming one of the industry’s preferred skin rejuvenation treatments. It works via laser energy, which is applied in small bursts to the surface of the skin. The best thing about this laser resurfacing treatment is that it can be completely tailored to the individual – which is ideal if some areas are more damaged than others.
Effectively, the laser creates thousands of tiny holes on the surface of your skin. Don’t worry, you won’t be able to see them; they literally are microscopic. These holes help not only to promote skin tightening, but also to stimulate the production of collagen, which helps to give elasticity and youthfulness back to your skin.
