CO2 Fractional Laser

The SmartXide DOT® CO2 laser system will help your skin regain its tone as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines, small and large acne scars, and dark marks on your face and hands.

SmartXide DOT® uses a CO2 laser system on electronically pre-set network of points, without removing the entire skin surface as with other systems. 

CO2 lasers are the most powerful systems on the market, capable of amazingly good results. The CO2 laser procedure stimulates skin rejuvenation by resurfacing targeted areas and utilizing specific, customized depths due to the SmartXide’s fractional DOT technology. 

Thanks to the new DOT method, treatment discomfort has been reduced with significant lessening of after-treatment pain. The treatment is safe and effective and can be used for every part of your face, neck, and hands- even with the finest most delicate skin-types. There’s no need for an injection, just a topical anesthetic cream and pain management medication.

Treatment

Treatment typically takes half an hour to an hour depending on the area(s) being treated. We recommend patients arrive one hour prior to treatment time to have topical anesthetic applied. Side effects may include swelling, redness, and sometimes pinpoint bleeding. While people experience itching and peeling for a few days after the treatment, patients can usually return to normal activity after 5 to 10 days, depending on the intensity of treatment.

Results

All the changes in your skin obtained with SmartXide DOT® are long lasting. The majority of patients observe increased skin tone after the first treatment. You may also notice that your skin marks have faded after one single treatment, though two may be necessary to see these effects. As the effect of the laser stimulates the production of collagen, you will notice a progressive improvement of your skin for at least six months after your last treatment. Nevertheless, the beneficial effects will gradually diminish with the natural aging process. Remember that smoking, alcohol, excessive exposure to the sun, and poor eating habits all accelerate the aging process. ​

A thorough consultation with one of our knowledgeable practitioners can help you determine if CO2 fractional laser is right for you. The consultation includes expected treatment outcome and skin improvement, anticipated recovery time, and risks. Please call Luxe Aesthetic Center to schedule your complimentary consultation.
