Laser Skin Resurfacing Using the SmartXide® DOT CO2 Laser
CO2 lasers use a high energy beam to create a controlled burn of the deeper layers of skin. This controlled burn stimulates the production of collagen, eliminates dark spots from sun damage or aging and can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Because the laser acts on the deeper layers of skin, results are often more effective than traditional resurfacing therapies such as peels or dermabrasion. The SmartXide® DOT laser uses a fractional amount of energy compared to traditional CO2 laser therapy, resulting in less pain and downtime, but still giving many of the same benefits.

Dr. Killingsworth and Dr. Catignani recommend CO2 fractional laser treatments with the SmartXide® DOT CO2 Laser System for:

CO2 Fractional Laser (SmartXide® DOT CO2 Laser) Procedure
After applying a topical numbing agent, the laser is applied to the skin in a series of tiny dots in a grid-like pattern, leaving surrounding skin intact. This allows for faster healing, less pain and less downtime than traditional CO2 laser techniques. The grid can be adjusted based on your specific skin needs. Overall healing time can take 2 to 4 weeks, with full results seen 2 to 3 months after the procedure.
