DOT Therapy with the SmartXide DOT CO2 laser offers the ultimate in skin rejuvenation in just under 30 minutes for most treatments. DOT Therapy is ideal for treatments like sun damage, brown spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. Our customers enjoy offering their patients acclaimed DOT Therapy signature procedures like the “Madonna Lift“™ and the “Summer Peel”™ that are increasingly popular because of the lasting results and rapid recovery time. Powered by SmartXide DOT proprietary SmartPulse technology, DOT Therapy allows physicians to tailor treatments to each condition by independently controlling the ablation depth and the thermal coagulation zone. SmartPulse energy ablates tissue in less than 150 microseconds for the cleanest, fastest procedures, and can add up to 2 milliseconds of lower power thermal energy at your discretion, making this the most advanced CO2 laser available.
Not only does the DOT offer amazing results, but it does so safely and quickly with little downtime. The benefits of DOT Therapy speak for themselves:
- Minimal downtime
- Customized treatment
- Rapid healing
- Quick procedure
- Little or no anesthesia

DOT Therapy powered by the SmartXide DOT laser system employs a unique technology, SmartPulse, that allows simultaneous independent control of both energy (depth) and dwell time (thermal damage). This translates into a great benefit to the physician and the patient: Physicians can adjust parameters to tailor the treatment and downtime to the patient’s specific needs. Areas such as the neck, décolletage, eyelids, and darker skin types with a high risk of PIH (Postinflammatory Hyperpigmentation) – previously considered untreatable – can now be treated successfully and safely. Patients will enjoy the benefits of tailored treatments, reduced recovery time and quick procedures.
With SmartXide DOT physicians can select treatment parameters ranging from superficial and delicate treatments (minimum density 1.7%) to increasingly deeper treatments such as skin resurfacing (density 100%). The HiScan scanner gives you a wide choice of patterns and sizes at your fingertips, and HiScan’s 38 density levels give you unparalleled precision.
Powerful technology in a streamlined system, the SmartXide DOT can deliver more ablative power to tissue, over 200 watts, than other lasers. The latest innovations in laser design and control systems lead to SmartPulse control of the treatment. The adjustable high-power short-duration pulse to get to your desired ablation depth, coupled with the adjustable-duration low-power pulse to get the amount of thermal energy desired makes SmartXide DOT the most technically advanced CO2 system available. SmartPulse technology makes SmartXide DOT the first system with independent control of ablation depth and coagulation zone. The HiScan™ computer pattern generator puts controls at your finger tips. HiScan DOT meets all the traditional skin ablation needs by combining the benefits of both methods in one instrument, offering a selection of different scanning shapes, sizes, and aspect ratios. It enables a higher degree of refinement in adapting the treatment to a patient.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What is DOT Therapy?
A: DOT Therapy (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) is a fresh new way to transform skin and enhance its overall appearance. DOT Therapy can reverse the appearance of aged or sun-damaged skin, smooth wrinkles and fine lines and minimize acne scars. Because DOT Therapy delivers the desired outcome with minimal downtime, it is rapidly replacing traditional laser skin resurfacing as the treatment of choice for mild to moderate signs of photo damage.
Q: How Does DOT Therapy Work?
A: DOT Therapy is setting a new standard in laser skin rejuvenation. During the procedure a pattern of tiny scanned pulses of laser energy are applied to the skin with a controlled laser. Laser settings can be adjusted to tailor the treatment and obtain the best results. Adjustments can be made throughout the procedure to more accurately treat specific areas such as acne scars on the cheeks or fine lines around the mouth. The DOT Therapy laser precisely creates thousands of microscopic holes (DOT’s) in the skin, which induce skin tightening and stimulate new collagen growth. Patients are often amazed at how tight their skin feels immediately after the procedure. DOT Therapy is designed to improve the skin’s texture and tone and to fight fine lines, deep wrinkles, and acne scars. Unlike other ablative laser technologies, DOT Therapy leaves islands of healthy tissue surrounding the microscopic DOTs. This enables the skin to heal more rapidly and minimizes overall damage.
