DOT Therapy (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) is the newest breakthrough in laser technology, now offered at Pope Plastic Surgery.
The Dot, as it is affectionately known, is the laser that everyone is talking about, including top beauty editors in magazines like Vogue, OK, and Elle.
The DOT is a fractionated CO2 medical laser that treats the skin in a “dot-like pattern.” Dr. Pope actually customizes each DOT Therapy treatment to the patient’s skin, selectively treating problem areas with pinpoint accuracy. During the treatment, thousands of tiny dots/scanned pulses of laser energy are applied. This promotes immediate skin tightening and new collagen growth. Wrinkles and fine lines, scars, and sun spots are dramatically decreased instantly. Silkly, soft new skin begins to emerge.
It only takes about twenty to thirty minutes to complete the procedure. Expect slight redness, which should subside in a weekend (2-3 days). DOT Therapy is safer than traditional laser resurfacing treatments. Because sedation is not required, the patient is only exposed to a topical anesthetic. Injections and sedation are not necessary with DOT Therapy. Because DOT Therapy offers the doctor so much control and customization, patients are treated faster and more precisely.
Your skin reveals a lot about you. DOT Therapy is the easy way to achieve a healthy, fresh, and radiant glow that traditional skin care maintenance, diet and exercise alone just can’t give you.
