DOT Laser Therapy and Acne Scars, Sun Damage and Wrinkles

Published on December 12, 2008 by Brian Joseph

Wrinkles, acne scars and sun-damaged skin can all be positively impacted by DOT Laser Therapy. Thirty minutes of treatment with this remarkable new laser technology can make a world of difference in the appearance of these skin conditions that have developed over a period of several years.

How It Works
As you undergo the procedure, Dr. Brian Joseph will utilize the laser to place a pattern of tiny scanned energy pulses on your skin. The DOT Laser Therapy generates large numbers of microscopic holes in your skin that create skin tightening and stimulate new collagen growth right away. DOT Therapy improves skin’s tone and works against fine lines, deeper wrinkles, and acne scars.

The Rapid Healing Process
Laser treatments of the past blanketed the entire surface of the skin with the laser; DOT Therapy allows healthy tissue to surround the treated area, promoting faster healing. After your treatment is completed, a cold pack will be utilized. Following the procedure, your skin will be reddish—somewhat similar to a sunburn. Some peeling may occur within about three to four days. Your skin should begin to look quite normal after around seven days. You will utilize a hydrating cream while you recover to moisturize your skin and promote healing. Makeup can be used after about three days.

If you would like to take advantage of the short recovery time and impressive results of DOT Laser Therapy, please contact, Park Avenue Plastic Surgery, the office of Dr. Brian Joseph, at 800-828-7590 to schedule an appointment today.
