A smart choice
How the DEKA SmartXide Touch DOT/RF CO2 laser takes CO2 treatments for dermatological applications to the next level by combining it for the first time with radiofrequency
CO2 skin resurfacing has long been considered the gold standard in laser facial rejuvenation, but with traditional treatments came risks, pain and weeks of downtime, due to the removal of all the epidermis. Areas such as the neck, décolletage and periocular area, which are prone to premature ageing, could also not be easily treated because skin did not heal as well as the face.
The evolution of fractional CO2 treatments has enabled practitioners to minimise these side effects by damaging a smaller percentage of the skin and leaving part of the epidermis intact. This results in in far less downtime and pain as well as a reduced risk of post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation, sensitivity and infection, without compromising on results.
