Targeting Different Skin Issues with the Deka DOT Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment

Skin care has been a hot topic in recent years, with swaths of people trying various methods to improve their skin’s appearance, feeling, and health so they can feel their best. Oils, creams, face masks, and personal appliances have all become common ways for people to address any skin issues they’re concerned about.

However, one option that’s becoming increasingly popular is the Deka DOT CO2 laser, which we proudly offer at Port City Plastic Surgery in North Charleston, SC. Read on if you’d like to learn why it’s so popular and how it works.

What Is the Deka DOT Laser?

The Deka DOT CO2 laser is a fractional laser skin resurfacing technology that uses fractionated laser beams to treat smaller, specific portions of the skin, as opposed to non-fractional lasers, which are more invasive and treat more significant portions.

Why Is It So Popular?

There are two main reasons skin care oriented people love the Deka laser. The first reason is the sheer versatility concerning the skin concerns it can treat. The second is the reduced recovery time compared to other treatments that go beyond the epidermis. The latter is crucial to people due to today’s busy, high-speed nature.

What the Laser Can Treat

The Deka laser can treat many skin issues due to sun damage, aging, and environmental elements. The problems it treats best include acne scars, wrinkles and lines, sunspots, hyperpigmentation, uneven tone, and loose skin.

What to Expect from the Treatment

The Deka DOT CO2 laser sends fragmented lasers below the epidermis, targeting areas deep within your skin, only making small holes in select areas of the skin rather than going across your entire face.

When the laser enters your skin, it creates microscopic “wounds,” which trigger your body’s collagen production, reshaping the existing collagen in the area and sending fresh new collagen to it. This collagen production can continue for months, effectively remodeling your skin, reducing the above issues, and making your skin feel younger and more comfortably textured.

Deka DOT CO2 Recovery Process

After the treatment, you will look and feel like you have a sunburn, but the feeling of warmth will usually subside within a few hours. For the first week of recovery, your skin will feel rough and dry, so keeping hydrated and moisturized is critical. Afterward, the skin will start to heal, and you’ll notice a significant difference, even after just one laser session.

Is Laser Treatment Right for You?

If you’re looking for quality results with low downtime and high longevity, then the Deka DOT CO2 laser may be the right treatment for you. Having certain marks on your skin can be stressful, so not only can the treatment improve appearance, but it can also help provide mental relief from anxiety or self-esteem issues surrounding skin issues.
