It is very difficult to underestimate the importance of the medical equipment for the success of most medical procedures, especially in a medical field that has registered so many technical advancements as dermatology and cosmetic medicine. The great majority of medical practitioners will recognize that the quality of the equipment is one of the main determining factors when it comes to the final aesthetic outcome. At Renew Skin & Health Clinic, our team of dermatological experts uses the DEKA SmartXide CO2 Laser and has consistently obtained positive results when performing skin rejuvenation, skin resurfacing, wrinkle removal, skin pigmentation correction, laser skin tightening, acne removal, scar removal and actinic keratosis removal. Laser skin resurfacing, often referred to as laser vaporization, is a relatively uncomplicated form of laser skin treatment that addresses both the aesthetic and the medical issues produced by acne, actinic keratosis, seborrheic keratosis and other types of skin lesions. The procedure implies administering a high-intensity laser beam to the portion of the skin that presents the unwanted epidermal lesion. The laser will react with the outer strata of the epidermis which will cause the disassociation of the skin’s molecular bonds. The aim of this controlled damage is to cause the safe removal of the external layer of the skin and stimulate the natural collagen renewal and the production of new skin cells. The DEKA SmartXide Fractional CO2 Laser provides both the patient and the medical technician with some advantages when performing laser skin resurfacing. The fractioned CO2 laser is administered to the patient’s skin under the form of thousands of miniscule laser pinpoints, leaving the adjacent tissue unaffected in order to facilitate the recovery process and reduce the intensity of the post-operational discomfort. The DEKA fractional CO2 Laser device provides the dermatological specialists added precision and a greater ability to adapt to the particular requirements of the patient’s skin condition. This is due to the fact that it enables the medical specialist to independently control the modulation of both the intensity of the laser beam and the length of the dwell time. By manipulating these parameters, as well as the distance between DOTs, the shape and size of the treated area, the scanning method and the SmartStack level, the medic can determine and control the final result with greater precision. Together with the patient, he can find a balance between the immediate effectiveness of the treatment and the duration of the recovery period. The laser can be set to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin in order to obtain a more noticeable result after one session, or it may be set to affect only the surface of the epidermis for those patients who present considerable skin sensitivity and require a non-invasive laser procedure. The DEKA SmartXide Fractional CO2 Laser is especially effective in providing acne removal, hypertrophic scars removal, sebaceous adenomas treatment, actinic keratosis removal and seborrheic keratosis laser treatment. Because it allows the medic to adapt the intensity of the laser therapy to the requirements of the patient, the Renew Skin & Health Clinic team of dermatologists uses the Deka SmartXide Fractional CO2 Laser device to provide effective and non-invasive laser skin resurfacing for those patients who have a heightened epidermal sensitivity or a low pain threshold. It is recommended to use kojic acid based products during the 3 to 4 weeks prior to the actual procedure in order to facilitate the laser rejuvenation process. A diet change based on an increased intake of Vitamin C can also be helpful in preserving and enhancing the aesthetic outcome of the procedure. If the patient has had issues or has presented herpes in the past, he will be directed to undergo an antiviral treatment 6 days before the laser treatment. In any case, we ensure a special treatment regime for each individual patient based on their medical background. Renew Skin & Health Clinic provides free demonstrations and free training for those medical practitioners who wish to utilize the DEKA SmartXide CO2 Laser in their clinics in order to obtain optimal laser skin resurfacing results.
