Boise CO2 Laser Resurfacing helps reverse the appearance of aged and sun damaged skin. It also helps to:
- Improve texture and firmness
- Smooth wrinkles and lines
- Reduce the appearance of acne and other scars
- Renew your skin
- Downtime is adjustable (Dr. Kerr or one of of certified staff members can work with you on how much laser resurfacing is needed)
At Silk Touch Med Sp and Laser Center, we use SmartXide DOT C02 laser for our fractional laser treatments. This laser has been the #1 skin resurfacing tool for the past decade over peeling and other laser techniques, mainly due to the fact that it tighten the skin naturally, while stimulating increased collagen production. The result? Think of it like a mini face-lift without any incisions.
How Idaho Fractional Laser Resurfacing Works
With Idaho fractional laser resurfacing the laser beam is broken up or fractionated into many tiny micro beams (DOTs!) which are separated so that when they strike the skin surface, small areas of the skin between the beams are not hit by the laser and left intact. These small areas of untreated skin promote a much more rapid recovery and healing with less risk of complications. The small areas treated by the fractional micro beams, called micro treatment zones, cause sufficient laser injury to promote new collagen production and resultant facial skin rejuvenation.
The results are phenomenal across the board. Take a look!
What is a Boise CO2 Laser Resurfacing treatment like?
Each CO2 Laser Resurfacing treatment begins with understanding the patient’s desires and needs. Every new patient will sit down for a free consultation with our patient care coordinator. The laser settings Dr. Kerr chooses are determined by the problem the patient wishes to emphasize. While most treatments will improve both skin color and provide skin tightening or scar improvement, Dr. Kerr has the ability to emphasize one area over another. Superficial problems like pigment disorders or mild wrinkles are treated with close DOTs. Deeper problems such as scars or deep skin creases are treated with more distance between DOTs and fewer overall DOTs, greater depth and longer times with dwell times.
Patients whose primary concern is overall skin laxity and general wrinkling are treated between the two extremes. Treatments off the face generally use similar distance between the DOTs and depth settings as the face, but dwell times approximately one half the settings of facial treatments. Upper eyelids can be done with laser eye shields in place. The area is first covered with a topical anesthetic. The topical anesthetic is allowed to stay in place for about an hour. Using the topical anesthetic allows the SmartXide DOT treatment to be done with little discomfort. Immediately after having the procedure, the area we treated will feel hot. Therefore, we cool the area down with ice and a special cooler for about 30 minutes. Altogether, you should plan on about 2 hours for your Idaho C02 Resurfacing – SmartXide DOT treatment.
Silk Touch Testimonials for Boise CO2 Laser Resurfacing
“There is not a cosmetic treatment I could find that has made me this happy! The Dot Therapy not only erased my brown spots, uneven skin tone, and wrinkles, it also significantly improved the tightness and texture of my skin. The treatment took years off my face, allowing me to go without makeup and look more youthful with an even skin tone. I have seen even more improvement as the months go by. I love it when my friends and associates comment on how great I look. I would recommend this treatment over and over again…Thank you Dr. Kerr for the wonderful treatment!”
