[liv]® Laser Resurfacing:
Lasabrasion C02: Referred to as “laser peel” or “laser vaporization.” Fractionated laser rapidly treats a spot then skips over a tiny area of skin leaving it intact before treating the next spot. That tiny area left untreated quickly bridges the gaps, with the other untreated spots healing over the treated spots much more quickly.
Deka DOT™: This is a light fractional CO2 laser resurfacing treatment that is outstanding in addressing multiple aspects of aging skin in a single treatment. Deka DOT™ laser selectively penetrates the skin’s upper layers and creates microscopic dots that tighten, refresh and illuminates the skin. The dots also allow greater penetration of topical agents and pharmaceuticals. A light treatment has virtually no downtime while a more intense therapy results in a youthful glow after a few days of recuperation.
