Fractionated CO2-Deka Dot Laser

What is the DEKA DOT laser?

  • DEKA DOT is Fractional CO2 laser that uses a laser skin resurfacing technology that is considered safer, more powerful and more efficient than previous CO2 lasers.
  • Offers the benefits of a traditional Fractional CO2 treatment WITHOUT the significant discomfort and extended downtime associated with other fractional CO2 treatments.
  • Performed by DEKA DOT laser, with it’s proprietary SMARTpulse technology. The pulses deliver a controlled micro-trauma to the skin layers creating micro-channels to stimulate the skin’s innate repair and renewal process.
  • DEKA DOT therapy spaces the pulses so a lot of healthy tissues remain untouched between the micro-channels, while the “dots” stimulate renewal and collagen. These areas of healthy tissues is what allows the skin to heal more rapidly and minimizing overall damage than with other resurfacing treatments.
  • Used for face most often but can treat more sensitive areas such as the neck, back of the hands and area around the eyes as well.
  • Treatment is customizable, can be light, moderate or aggressive depending on goals of treatment
