SmartXide DOT Fractional Laser
SmartXide DOT Fractional Laser is the most advanced CO2 fractional laser system for treating a wide range of skin problems including acne scarring, pigmentation problems, lines and wrinkles, and sun damaged skin.
It works by creating many thousands of microscopic perforations, or DOTS in the skin, which cause immediate skin tightening and stimulate the growth of new collagen, improving the texture and tone of the skin to reduce fine lines and deep wrinkles, and even acne scars.
The DOT Therapy works by leaving the skin around each of the holes untouched and intact so that it heals from the edge of the tiny perforations very quickly, promoting more rapid healing.
Unlike other treatments, each SmartXide DOT treatment can be perfectly tailored to each person's own skin-type, the degree of damage to it, and their lifestyle, all of which may have a bearing on the recovery time required for the procedure.
- A gradual smoothing of the skin's surface with a noticeable reduction in wrinkles and any acne scarring
- A reduction in persistent pigmentation problems including melasma
Clients should always adhere to the pre and post treatment skincare regime and advice that will be individually prescribed for you in order to maximise the results.
Research studies and clinical data have proved that SmartXide Fractional Laser treatments can significantly improve the texture of skin, soften lines and wrinkles, reduce acne and other forms of scarring, reduce some excessive skin pigmentation problems (including melasma) and reduce roughness and pore size.

However, treatment success does vary from person to person and relies very much upon the careful selection of clients and setting realistic expectations for treatment.
A course of two to five treatments every four to six weeks is normally recommended, depending upon the severity and extent of the skin problem that is treated.
Although the SmartXide DOT fractional laser is effectively creating tiny holes in the skin, healing is generally quick with little downtime. It can be used on both light and darker skin types and, depending on the area of your body which is being treated, the procedure is very well tolerated by most people with pain controlled through the application of topical anaesthetic.
The skin will feel tight and appear swollen with a “sunburned” look for several hours afterwards, which may last for 2 -3 days. The skin may continue to look “pinkish” for 5 - 7 days and any swelling, which should be minimal, usually disappears after 1 – 3 days.
You will find mild to moderate skin flaking as the skin heals itself, which may last for up to 2 weeks.
Improvement after the final treatment session can continue for up to 6 months before the optimum result is achieved according to some clients.
