SmartXide DOT CO2 Laser in Bethesda

Posted on November 10, 2016 under Uncategorized


Starting January 2013, we will have the SmartXide Dot® Laser in our office!!

What is this, you ask?

SmartXide DOT is the only CO2 laser that works through pulsed emission, utilizing two innovative technologies: SmartPulse and SmartStack to take 10 years off of your skin.  Facial rejuvination at its finest!
This is a major breakthrough compared to other fractional systems that utilize a continuous source or traditional pulsed emission.

The unique SmartXide DOT technology makes it the only system capable of treating even the most complex cases, such as scarring, surface pigmentation and deep wrinkles, tailoring treatments and downtime to the patient’s needs. Areas such as the neck and eyelids, and even phototypes with a high PIH (Postinflammatory Hyperpigmentation) risk – to date considered out of reach – can now be treated successfully and safely.

The natural effects of aging, sunlight and exposure to air pollution cause a gradual deterioration in both the structure and functions of the skin. SmartXide DOT has paved the way for a new generation of CO2 lasers. Yet another DEKA breakthrough, melding scientific knowledge and technological advances to bring physicians innovative solutions to enhance and facilitate their work.
The SmartPulse technology and the SmartStack function guarantee maximum reliability in controlling the depth of vaporization and the non-ablative thermal effect on the skin. Minimal thermal damage to the surrounding tissue guarantees rapid recovery for the patient.

“One single treatment removed years of sun damage and made my skin feel much smoother too.  I was back to work the very next day.”
