DOT CO2 Laser Treatment
The DOT CO2 laser (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) is an ideal option for the treatment of wrinkles, lines, acne scars, rosacea, pigment, and skin laxity on the face, neck, and chest. By transmitting microscopic columns of light energy, the laser creates a grid of treated and untreated skin, allowing for rapid recovery. This treatment is a great way to address almost any skin concern you might have.

The LTSC Experience
Six weeks prior to your treatment, we will provide you with a hydroquinone cream in order to prep your skin for the laser and to prevent discoloration afterwards. When you arrive for your treatment, a qualified member of our clinician team applies a light topical anesthetic to ensure a comfortable experience. During the treatment, tiny scanned pulses of laser energy will be applied to treatment area, creating microscopic removal of the skin. This will induce immediate skin tightening and stimulate new collagen growth.
Anticipated Recovery & Results
After this treatment, you will experience some redness and swelling at the treated area. About 4 days after your treatment, your skin will begin to peel and may continue to peel for 6-10 more days. After your treatment, we will provide you with specific aftercare instructions to make your recovery process as easy and as comfortable as possible.
