DOT: laser skin rejuvenation

The Italian method of skin rejuvenation, based on the use of laser exposure, has received many admirers all over the world due to its effectiveness and long-term preservation of the results. The purpose of this article is to tell the readers what this procedure is, how it works, what are its advantages, what effects can be achieved, and what complications are possible.

Laser skin rejuvenation or dermal optical thermolysis is performed using a device called SmartXide DOT, which is why the procedure is called DOT rejuvenation.

The laser beam has a targeted, dosed thermal effect, leaving the surrounding tissue intact.

The technology of this technique is based on the thermal and histochemical effect of photothermolysis. During the manipulation, water is applied together with the use of a microbeam laser, as a result of which the skin cells quickly heat up to 95 degrees. In this case, the damaged protein compounds of the treated dermal tissue are deposited and coagulated, and the excess fluid accumulated in problem areas along with toxins and destroyed cells is excreted.

DOT rejuvenation is compared to the production of heat electroshock, evenly distributed among all cells of the skin tissue, followed by the activation of enzymes that destroy damaged cellular structures, provoking a premature aging process.

To achieve the maximum effect, all parameters and duration of laser exposure are individually selected for each patient.

When is the procedure recommended

The technique allows in a fairly short time to eliminate the main signs of wilting of the skin surface, namely:

  • enlarged pores;
  • manifestations of ptosis (age-related sagging of the skin);
  • pigmentation of various types;
  • cicatricial deformities and heterogeneity of the skin relief;
  • vascular "asterisks";
  • loss of elasticity;
  • wrinkles of varying severity (from shallow to deep furrows).

In what cases the technique is contraindicated

Unfortunately, not every woman will be able to undergo this popular anti-aging procedure, since dermatologists do not recommend it for:

  • pregnancy and breastfeeding;
  • various diseases of the epidermis (eczema, seborrhea, rosacea and others);
  • acute stage of herpes;
  • mental disorders;
  • dermatosis in the acute stage;
  • oncological processes in the body;
  • a period of strong solar activity;
  • tendency to hyperpigmentation.

What are the benefits of manipulation

DOT rejuvenation is considered a gentle and safe procedure that can restore the skin surface and tissues damaged during aging, restoring the lost appearance and aesthetic appeal of the epidermis.

A huge advantage of the technique is the ability to adjust the depth of laser point penetration and the number of destroyed micro-areas of skin tissue, depending on the layers of the dermis that need to be restored.

The readings of the device are controlled by a unique scanner that provides adjustment:

  • the area and individual areas of the epidermis requiring correction;
  • the length of the electrical impulses;
  • concentration and density of leather processing (excluding gaps);
  • selection of the required regimen for each patient individually;
  • microtraumas of the skin (without overlapping them).

During the manipulation, only 25% of the skin surface is damaged, due to which the epidermis regenerates several times faster.

The main advantages of the procedure are:

  • one session conducted under the supervision of an experienced specialist, which in most cases is enough to obtain the desired result;
  • long-term preservation of the obtained effects;
  • the possibility of carrying out the procedure on any skin, including thin and hypersensitive.

This technique helps to achieve not only a cosmetic, but also a pharmaceutical effect, ensuring the delivery of drugs to the deep layers of the skin structure. Manipulation relieves, among other things, of dyschromia, and also significantly reduces the severity of atrophic cicatricial formations.

What results can be achieved

A month after undergoing the DOT rejuvenation procedure, you can see the following results:

  • complete renewal of the upper and deep layers of skin tissue, which is manifested in a change in the appearance and quality of the epidermis;
  • an increase in skin tone and elasticity as a result of increased production of its own collagen fibers;
  • complete elimination of age spots and lightening of melasma resulting from hormonal dysfunction;
  • alignment of the relief and color of the skin surface;
  • the appearance of new, healthy tissue in places and areas with scars, scars.

Possible complications after manipulation

Along with a large number of positive results on the skin, side effects may appear in the form of:

  • slight redness and slight irritation in the treatment areas;
  • activation of the herpes virus in persons predisposed to this infection;
  • puffiness followed by the formation of crusts.

Be sure to follow all the recommendations and prescriptions of the beautician who performed the procedure in order to significantly reduce, and in some cases, avoid any side effects!

When deciding on such a technique, you should understand that the success and effectiveness of the manipulation will almost completely depend on the qualifications, experience, knowledge of the doctor of the clinic you applied to, so approach this issue responsibly and be sure to check the availability of the appropriate documentation from your chosen specialist!

Keep in mind that the maximum result after DOT rejuvenation will appear in six months and will remain unchanged for 2 - 2. 5 years.

In conclusion, I would like to advise every woman who wants to experience such a rejuvenating technique on herself to read the reviews of patients who have undergone this manipulation!
