Woman after fall laser treatment in Kansas City We all have skin issues that we’d like to improve. One of the best ways to achieve a younger, smoother, and healthier-looking complexion is through laser skin resurfacing.

If you’ve been thinking about booking a DOT SmartXide C02 Fractionated Laser treatment, now might be a perfect time. Here’s why.

You Can Reverse Summer Skin Damage

Summer is over, but the signs of sun damage can hang around forever without treatment. Laser skin rejuvenation is an excellent solution to many skin concerns caused by too much time in the sun, including:

  • Redness
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Irregular skin texture
  • Volume loss
  • Poor skin elasticity
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

The Risk of Side Effects Is Lower

Laser skin resurfacing is a safe and proven treatment with a relatively low risk of side effects. However, your healthy new skin will be photosensitive and should be protected from sun exposure.

Not only can sun exposure diminish your results, but it can increase your chance of experiencing an unwanted skin response like freckling. For those reasons, it’s important to wear sunscreen and limit your time in the sun. Many people wait until the autumn months to book a laser treatment since they won’t be outside as often.

Staying at Home Makes Recovery a Breeze

DOT technology offers the benefits of traditional CO2 lasers with a fraction of the downtime. However, you should still expect facial redness and swelling. Facial redness may last anywhere from 24 hours to two weeks, depending on the treatment setting.

Most of us are staying at home as much as possible due to COVID-19. Without social commitments or big events on your calendar, no one will need to know you had anything done.

Your health is our priority. Get in touch to learn how we are keeping our patients safe while providing access to the surgical and non-surgical services they desire.
