DOT Therapy

 

DOT Therapy Gold Coast

DOT Therapy delivers a CO2 laser beam divided into thousands of microscopic treatment zones that target a fraction of the skin at a time. These treatments zones cause thermal damage to underlying collagen and elastin, to stimulate the production of new fibers. Fractionating the laser allows for less downtime due to faster healing and fewer side effects. It can be used to treat a range of skin concerns including acne scarring, sun damage, seborrheic keratosis, age spots, and scarring as well as anti-aging, reducing wrinkles, and increasing skin elasticity.

For sun damage, rejuvenation, and anti-aging effects we recommend annual maintenance treatments for the benefits of having longevity.

 

 

What is involved? 

Patients will arrive an hour prior to the procedure and a topical numbing cream is applied and left on for an hour. Whilst the numbing cream is extremely effective, you may feel warmth in their skin and experience slight discomfort during and after the procedure. You will be given complete after-care instructions.

 

 

 

What is the recovery time? 

Immediately following treatment, you will feel warm and the skin will be pink or red. In the next 24 – 48 hours swelling and facial redness will develop, and you may experience a small amount of spot bleeding, which is completely normal and nothing to worry about. Patients should expect 7-10 days of downtime but will be able to return to normal duties after a week with some redness. During this time, we suggest patients do not participate in vigorous exercise activities or attend saunas or hot spas.

How many treatments will I need? 

Dependent on what condition is being treated, an initial course of 2 -3 treatments is recommended. For sun damage, rejuvenation, and anti-aging effects, usually, an annual maintenance treatment is required for the benefits to be maintained.

Cool Peel

CO2 now offers a less abrasive laser option to reduce fine lines, sun damage, improve skin texture, and reduce pore size with minimal downtime. Cool Peel is a brand-new way to deliver the benefits of a traditional CO2 resurfacing treatment safely and easily by targeting just the superficial layer of skin tissue. During treatment damaged skin is removed revealing younger, healthier-looking skin.

Cool Peel is recommended for skin rejuvenation, treatment of pigmentation, anti-aging, fine lines, wrinkles, and mild acne scarring.

Treatment areas include full-face or can be used in specific areas under the eyes and above the lip.

What is involved?

You will arrive 40 minutes before your treatment and have a topical numbing cream applied. Generally beginning at the forehead and working down, the entire face is treated. Patients may experience a slight tingling sensation and some warmth during treatment and after the treatment, and each patient is given after-care instructions.

What is the recovery time? 

Your face will be red at first, it then is mildly swollen over the course of 3 – 4 days. It is advised that patients must stay out of the sun for at least 3 – 4 days and regularly apply moisturizer. Mineral makeup can be worn if necessary, 4 days after treatment.

How many treatments will I need?  

We recommend 4 treatments, 4 weeks apart for optimum results.
