Ciao Bella Medical Spa is the first in Arizona to offer SmartXide Dot Therapy, a revolutionary new tool ideal for the treatment of wrinkles, skin laxity and texture, acne scarring and scar reduction, dyschromia, dermal lesions, photoaging, and much more!
The SmartXide Dot treatments represent the very latest in tissue rejuvenation laser technology. This great breakthrough by DEKA Lasers utilizes a CO2 fractional system with a super-fast scanner that allows the doctor to do a “Dot Resurfacing”. By removing a customized pattern of dots and not the entire skin surface, unlike other CO2 lasers, this technology combines the best of both worlds – the great and proven results of a traditional ablative laser, but without the pain and the traditional downtime.
The SmartXide Dot treatment causes a rapid tightening of the skin, reduces blemishes and softens irregularities and scarring. It also stimulates collagen production, giving the skin a younger plumper look and feel. The collagen produced helps to prolong the effects of the treatment, and gives a more even result. What also sets SmartXide Dot apart from other treatments is that each treatment can be tailored to each person’s skin-type and degree of damage.
If you have always desired to rejuvenate your skin but have had fears of traditional laser resurfacing, you should consider this laser treatment. The results surpass any other laser technology on the market and blow away commonly known treatments like microdermabrasions and skin peels.
If you have spent years in the sun, especially without adequate sun protection, then you know what it can do to your skin. Wrinkles, skin discoloration, sun spots, skin laxity may be reduced or eliminated with DOT Therapy. Also, if you have scars from acne or other skin injuries, then you may also be a candidate for this procedure. Now, using DOT Therapy, an innovative, new laser technology, less than 30 minutes in your doctor’s office may restore your skin’s youthful appearance. While the aging process cannot be stopped, with proper care you can maintain your rejuvenated skin’s appearance for many years!
In most cases, excellent results can be achieved in a single session. However, persons with severe wrinkling or deep acne scars may benefit from a series of treatments spaced about one month apart.
It is a safe and effective way to treat sun damage, stubborn pigmentation, acne scars, rough texture, enlarged pores, fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, and surgical scars on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands, with essentially very little downtime. Any body surface area and all skin types and colors can be treated. The following is a list of common conditions that can be treated with SmartXide DOT Therapy:
There is virtually minimal, if any, discomfort during the procedure. Rarely, a mild burning sensation may occur. No topical anesthetic is required. However if we are working near the eye, say in the lower lids to create tightening there, then we would put protective eye shields in the eye with anesthetic eye drops as a precautionary measure to protect the eye itself; SAFETY FIRST!
Most people have some pinkness and some even a small amount of edema/swelling in the skin which settles in 24 to 48 hours. The amount of down time for each patient depends on the degree of intensity of each treatment. Dot Therapy can even be customized for patients who cannot afford more than one day of downtime. In this case, make-up can be applied right after the treatment. We do recommend regular application of moisturizers during the first 5-7 days as the skin may feel a little dry.
If you have always desired to rejuvenate your skin but have had fears of traditional laser resurfacing, you should consider this laser treatment. The results surpass any other laser technology on the market and blow away commonly known treatments like microdermabrasions and skin peels. DOT Therapy can be performed safely on nearly anyone with signs of aging skin.
