SmartXide DOT laser
Most patients will have a brown discolouration for 5 to 6 days after their SmartXide DOT CO2 laser treatment. It is important to keep the area well-lubricated during this time. Once the brown sloughs off, the skin is quite red, fading to pink over 2 weeks, but it may take longer in a fair-skinned individual. It is important to take anti-viral medication for at least one week, starting 2 days before the treatment, and sun avoidance is mandatory.
