The health and aesthetic quality of the skin of our patients are very important not only for their personal and social lives, but also for us, as medical professionals who care about the wellbeing of our patients and the final outcome of the medical process. The equipment we use when performing any medical procedure is always an essential determining factor, especially in the case of laser therapy. When confronted with wrinkle removal, scar removal, pigmentary photorejuvenation, acne removal, hair removal, brown spots removal, skin resurfacing laser treatment, freckles removal, actinic keratosis removal and many other forms of dermatological laser treatments, the Renew Skin & Health Clinic team utilizes the innovative DEKA SmartXide DOT CO2 Laser due to the unique advantages it offers.
Skin hyperpigmentation, commonly known as uneven skin pigmentation, is a benign epidermal condition that manifests when a certain portion of the skin experiences an overproduction of melanin creating the appearance of uneven skin tone. This pigmentary skin disorder is very common and is generally associated with advanced age progression and excessive sun exposure; while it does not cause any physical discomfort for the patient or affects any of the basic body functions, many patients will wish to have the skin spots removed due to aesthetic reasons. The DEKA SmartXide DOT Laser device is uniquely suited to address the manifestation of hyperpigmentation in a non-invasive manner and produce excellent brown spots removal without causing any scarring. The hyperpigmentation laser treatment involves exposing the affected portion of the skin to thousands of pulsating miniscule CO2 laser pinpoints which are designed to effectively remove the targeted skin lesion or pigmentation irregularity without damaging the adjacent tissue. This, of course, means that the epidermal regeneration process will be considerably faster and that the chances of any form of scarring will be drastically limited. The main advantage of the DEKA SmartXide CO2 Laser is that it provides the operating dermatological specialist with increased accuracy and enhanced control over the end result due to the innovative SmartPulse and Smart Stack technology. A wide number of parameters, including the modulation of the energy, the length of the dwell time, the distance between the DOTs and the size and shape of the treated area, can be set by the dermatologist in order to design a laser treatment that is specifically tailored for each individual patient. With the SmartStack function, the medical technician can set the density of the series of laser pulses in order to precisely determine the depth of the laser vaporization process and the intensity of thermal action. The monochromatic CO2 laser beam can be set to be delivered deeper into the skin and damage several epidermal strata while also strongly stimulating the natural production of collagen and the rate of skin cell regeneration, or it can be set to affect the superficial stratum exclusively in order to not cause any unnecessary damage and reduce the duration of the recovery period. The small pauses between the laser pulses allow the tissue to cool down, drastically reducing the occurrence of thermal damage.
At Renew Skin & Health Clinic, we have found that using the DEKA CO2 Laser for the hyperpigmentation laser treatment has considerably reduced the level of discomfort and the length of the recovery period by simply enabling the dermatologist to set the intensity of the laser therapy session. A kojic acid skin treatment during the 3 to 4 weeks prior to the actual procedure is recommended in order to facilitate the laser rejuvenation process. Also, an increased consumption of Vitamin C can also be helpful in preserving the aesthetic result of the laser treatment. If the patient has had issues or has presented herpes in the past, he will be directed to undergo an antiviral treatment 6 days before the laser treatment. At Renew Skin & Health Clinic, we ensure that a special treatment regime is established for each individual patient based on their medical background.
