What to consider if your planning on fractional CO2 DOT laser treatments in San Diego
Fractional Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Dermal Optical Thermolysis (DOT) laser treatments are a micro-ablative procedure that can treat both cosmetic concerns and skin conditions by resurfacing the skin.
Fractional CO2 DOT laser treatments are non-surgical, minimally painful procedures that treat skin conditions like scars, warts, and loose skin as well as cosmetic issues like dark spots and wrinkles. In the past, skin resurfacing or skin rejuvenation procedures were not safe for all skin tones, but fractional CO2 DOT laser treatments can be used on many types of skin.
Dr. Paul E. Chasan, a board certified plastic surgeon in San Diego has conducted extensive research on fractional CO2 DOT laser treatments which has led him to decide the SmartXide DOT Laser is the best laser for his patients. In this article, he will discuss the technology behind the SmartXide DOT Laser and what you can expect if you’re considering fractional CO2 DOT laser treatments in San Diego.
What Are Fractional CO2 DOT Laser Treatments?
Fractional CO2 DOT laser treatments are a skin resurfacing procedure that treats many skin conditions by delivering small beams of light deep into the skin. The laser makes tiny perforations into the skin while leaving the surrounding area unharmed. This stimulates the healing process and new collagen growth which results in firmer, smoother skin and a more even complexion.
According to a 2018 publication from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, “laser skin resurfacing can treat wrinkles, discoloration in the skin, and scars.” Unlike other skin resurfacing treatments, SmartXide DOT Laser is safe to use on a wide range of skin tones. Fractional CO2 DOT laser treatments are commonly used on the face but can also treat the neck, chest, hands, and several other areas of the body.
SmartXide DOT Laser uses the most advanced skin resurfacing technology available, thereby providing better efficacy, shorter recovery time, and less pain. In addition, Dr. Paul E. Chasan is able to customize your treatment with the SmartXide DOT Laser according to your skin tone, texture, and unique needs.
Considering Fractional CO2 DOT Laser Treatments?
According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery’s 2017 statistical report, the USA’s micro-ablative resurfacing procedures accounted for more than ¼ of the micro-ablative resurfacing procedures performed worldwide. Many patients choose fractional CO2 DOT laser treatments because they are convenient procedures that offer aesthetic benefits while treating several skin issues.
Moreover, patients are choosing skin resurfacing treatments more often than surgery because the pain is minimal, the recovery time after a fractional CO2 DOT Laser treatment lasts between a few days to a little over a week, and the procedure takes about 15 minutes to complete. While fractional CO2 DOT laser treatments are associated with minor pain, a topical anesthetic is administered before the procedure to reduce pain and discomfort.
The picture below shows Dr. Paul E. Chasan’s patient before SmartXide DOT Laser treatments and after SmartXide DOT Laser treatments. Here we can see the patient’s complexion is more balanced, and her wrinkles have been significantly reduced.
The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery reports in a 2018 article, “surgeons and patients are choosing fractional lasers more frequently because they remove a fraction of the skin, allowing the laser to safely penetrate deeper into the skin and achieve more dramatic results with less downtime.” In addition, fractional CO2 DOT laser treatments are ideal for patients who want longterm results. With quality skincare and protection, your skin resurfacing outcomes can be maintained for years.
Since fractional CO2 DOT laser treatments can even skin complexion, remove scars and wrinkles, and stimulate collagen growth, patients receive smoother, younger looking skin. As a result, many patients express increased self-esteem and confidence after they have received skin resurfacing treatments.
What Is The Cost Of Fractional CO2 DOT Laser Treatments?
Fractional CO2 DOT laser treatments are a cost-efficient choice for patients who are not ready for cosmetic surgery but want long-term and extensive results. According to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery’s 2017 statistical report, the average cost for fractional skin resurfacing is around $2000 per session. You will probably need a few sessions to achieve your desired results in the beginning, then minor treatments every few months or years to maintain your results as long as you protect your skin.
