Skin is the largest organ of your body. It is responsible for being a barrier between your body and the outside environment. It allows your body to release toxins through glands and sweat and helps keep your body at a stable temperature. However, day after day skin becomes damaged. DOT CO2 Fractional laser is the new way to help combat this damge.
Sun and ultraviolet rays cause hyper-pigmentation and wrinkles. The oxygen in the air oxidizes skin and causes accelerated aging to happen. Not to mention there are other chemicals that skin comes into contact with everyday that causes damage. After years of becoming damaged your skin will show signs of aging. This is when DOT Fractional CO2 is used to help restore and regenerate skin.
DOT Fractional CO2 is the newest method to regenerate skin and eliminate the damage that has happened.Â CO2 laser can help eliminate wrinkles, scars, warts, hyper-pigmentation, large glands and other skin issues. If you have any of these skin consulting with a physician is highly recommended. With a simple one-day DOT Fractional CO2 procedure you can help restore skin to a better health. After all your skin is your largest organ, protecting it is vital.
Once you consult with your physician a simple one-day procedure is done. At this time the doctor will numb your skin with a topical anesthetic and then DOT CO2 Fractional laser is applied to the surface.Â Over the next four days skin will remain red and new skin will form. During the next few weeks the skin will be restored to a better health. Sometimes three sessions of DOT CO2 Fractional Laser are necessary and these are spaced at 6-month intervals.
DOT Fractional CO2 is the newest and best way to help maintain skins health. Whether you have a lot of damage or just beginning to see signs, DOT Fractional CO2 is the best way to keep healthy skin.
