Wanting to look younger is not a new idea — the search for eternal youth has been going on for centuries. Skin problems like acne scars, liver spots on the back of the hands, face and décolletage or skin that’s been damaged by too much sun – they can all affect our self-confidence and we would all love to turn back the clock. Our skin has to contend with many things as we get older, sun, harsh weather and bad habits, and unfortunately these effects show on our face and tell the story. There are many reasons why we are not satisfied with our appearance but whether it’s our face, neck or hands that we have a problem with, a solution is available.
According to many doctors, one of the best anti-ageing breakthroughs of the decade is a skin-resurfacing treatment known as the SmartXide DOT which is a fractional Co2 laser system which will improve the texture, tone and overall quality of your skin.
- Poor texture
- Large skin pores
- Sun damage
- Sun spots
- Brown spots
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
- Uneven pigmentation
- Stretch marks
SmartXide Dot is tailored to each person’s skin-type and to the degree of damage on the skin. SmartXide Dot treatment helps to soften wrinkles of the face and rapidly firm and tighten the skin, especially around the mouth and eyes as well having the unique ability to tighten loose skin. The skin treatment softens deep lines and fine wrinkles until they disappear, leaving the skin smoother, fresher and more youthful. The treatment restores tone and glow to the face and other treated areas, by forming a completely new skin layer.
The laser is good for:
- Reversing the look of ageing skin
- To effectively repair sun damaged skin
- Improve skin tightening, texture and firmness
- Smooth wrinkles and lines
- Even out the skin tone and colour
- Reduce acne marks and other scars
- Treat pigmentation (brown spots and skin discoloration)
- Reduce large pores on the skin.
Scars from acne or other skin injuries can also benefit from using this treatment. This innovative laser treatment technology takes about 30 minutes to restore the skin’s youthful appearance. The laser stimulates new collagen growth which helps to prolong the effects of the treatment, and gives a more even result. While it’s true that we can’t halt the ageing process, with care, you can maintain your rejuvenated skin’s appearance for years to come!
How does Smartxide DOT laser work?
The SmartXide DOT laser is distinctive as it enables the doctor to selectively control the spacing of the DOTs, treating only small, specific areas, such as the eyes and mouth. The treatment creates thousands of microscopic spots on the surface of the skin, targeting small areas from a small wand-like device that passes over the treatment area, and this results in uncovering the smooth, fresher skin beneath. The dot pattern is customised to each persons skin type, the degree of skin damage and their lifestyle. The laser also heats the dermis which stimulates new collagen production, and as new skin cells develop, the face will become smoother and firmer.
An improvement in skin tone and texture will be noticeable as soon as the redness fades after one treatment. Over the next few months you will see a continuous improvement in the texture and smoothness of the skin. Wrinkles, lines, acne scars will fade as well. As SmartXide DOT doesn’t remove the entire skin surface, this means that any redness on the skin after treatment only lasts a few days.
Benefits of SmartXide Dot:
- Dramatically improve the skins appearance
- Tighten your skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production.
- Give fresher, younger looking skin.
- Minimal downtime
- Rapid healing
- Quick procedure
- Low risk
- Accurate results
- Customized treatment
- Minimally invasive
- Treatment of multiple issues at once (e.g. fine lines, freckles/sun damage)
- Little or no anaesthesia
The SmartXide laser is one of the most effective weapons in combating wrinkles, skin ageing, sun damage, skin texture, acne, surgery scars and many other skin imperfections.
3-4 treatments are usually required, each treatment 6-8 weeks apart. General anaesthetic isn’t used, just an anaesthetic cream that numbs the area, making treatment virtually pain-free.
Several hours post treatment, the skin will have a sunburned look which may last for 2-3 days. Any mild swelling will settle in 3-4 days and the skin may look pinkish for 5-7 days. The laser treatment is ideal for all skin types, body surface areas and skin colours.
