It is a well-known fact that the physician’s ability to effectively treat his patient’s health condition often depends on the quality of the equipment he uses. In the modern clinic, the human practice of medicine and the evolution of technology are constant parallels allowing the medical specialist to produce excellent results with limited risk to the patient. At Renew Skin & Health Clinic, we utilize the DEKA SmartXide CO2 Laser for complex laser treatments because of the particular benefits this instrument can offer both the patient and the dermatological specialist who is performing the procedure.
The DEKA SmartXide CO2 Laser is a medical laser device that innovates through the fact that it functions using pulsed emission with the aid of two technical accessories: the SmartPulse and the SmartStack. This offers very concrete advantages when compared with other fractional systems that utilize a continuous source of pulsed emission. The device applies fractioned CO2 laser energy to the patient’s skin which will present very small columns of calculated thermal damage. The relatively small portions of the skin that are actually damaged are surrounded by unaffected skin tissue, which considerably facilitates the regeneration process and reduces the duration of the downtime. This technology increases the accuracy with which the medical technician can perform his function, as well as the number of options he has when considering treatment regimes for specific skin conditions. The DEKA SmartXide Fractional CO2 Laser allows the treatment of very complex epidermal issues, such as scarring, deep expression wrinkles and intense hyperpigmentation, while also reducing the discomfort and the duration of the recovery time of the patient. In order to ensure that the skin of the treated area is exposed to minimal damage, the medical technician is able to set the distance between DOTs, the power, DOT dwell time, the shape and size of the treated area, the scanning method and the SmartStack level to the limits that are best suited for the planned procedure. Using the DEKA SmartXide CO2 Laser, the medic can ablate microscopic regions of the skin tissue superficially, in order to aid the skin regeneration process, or deeper in order to effectively remove profound wrinkles. This new method of laser treatment is not only non-invasive, but also very effective in treating most aesthetic epidermal imperfections. Because of the 10600nm wavelength of the CO2 laser, it has a far greater water absorption capability relative to the Fraxel laser, for instance, making it perfect for laser ablation or laser vaporization. The fractionate effect of the DEKA SmartXide CO2 Laser means that it is considerably safer than classical CO2 lasers because it provides the patient and the dermatological specialist with various options when it comes to the intensity of the treatment, the duration of the recovery, the accepted level of discomfort and the effectiveness of the final result. It can be used to successfully perform various skin treatments, including skin rejuvenation, skin resurfacing, laser skin tightening, effective wrinkle removal, scar removal and anti-ageing laser treatment.
Of course, there is some chance of medical complications occurring while performing laser therapy using this instrument, but this is generally associated either with human miscalculation or lack of experience. Some redness and swelling is quite common immediately after the operation is performed and usually subsides after 5 to 7 days. Slight scarring and discoloration may also occur if the procedure is not performed adequately, but this is highly unusual. Within Renew Skin & Health Clinic we have never experienced any major medical or aesthetic issue following a laser therapy session using the DEKA SmartXide Fractional CO2 Laser.
At Renew Skin & Health Clinic, we have used the DEKA SmartXide CO2 Laser with a very high success rate. The accuracy and the flexibility it allows means that the patient will be exposed to considerable fewer risks, far lower levels of discomfort and shorter periods of recovery. The medical specialist can perform a laser treatment regime that is specially designed for the medical requirement and preferences of each particular patient.
