I had Dot Therapy on Thursday afternoon and today is Sunday afternoon--4th day. I was very scared prior to the procedure as I have never had any laser treatment on my face before. I had a mild chemical peel and microderm before but I did not see any changes. I just turned 40 and was showing signs of READ MORE

My SmartXide Dot treatment was done on Saturday, 09/19/2009, primarily wanted it done for sun-damage, acne scars and fine lines.Nurse put numbing cream on my face for approx. 45 minutes, wiped it off after tingling sensation, indicating the proper affect and procedure began. There was slight... READ MORE

I'm 36 years old with fairly good skin. I decided to do this for preservation & maintenence. I had some age spots and a few chicken pox scars and a slight amount of tiny wrinkles. I've had three children with serious weight gain and loss associated with that. I was concerned with the... READ MORE

The DOT Laser was a little more intense than I expected by day 3-4 BUT I had A LOT of sun damage so Dr. Mendelsohn had to hit me hard with the laser. Unfortunately, I have had some Hyper-pigmentation so I am treating some dark spots about 12-weeks post treatment. I can already see a difference... READ MORE

My Experience: I’m 41 Croatian/English heritage with pretty good sun damage, some brown spots, acne scars and broken blood vessels on my cheeks and pretty deep frown lines between the eyes, deep crows feet, and lines around my mouth and starting to get a crêpe neck. Day 1,... READ MORE

I had the DOT laser done to even out my skin tone and tighten it up. I have olive skin that is probe to melasma. I am so impressed with the results, and by Dr. Miller's office and staff. They apply numbing cream before the procedure, so there is very little discomfort during the procedure... READ MORE

Having severe cystic acne as a teenager left me with some very deep scarring over my entire face. Taking a multiple-step approach, Dr. Surowitz combined subcision, DOT CO2 Laser, and dermal filler (Restylane Silk). Three-months post DOT laser procedure, my skin is noticably smoother and...

I had the SmartXide DOT Therapy with Dr. G. Anthony Slagel, a Dermatologist in Fayetteville, Georgia. I was told I would see 30-40% improvement in mild acne scarring, which I thought was a low expectation to begin with, but I went forward with the procedure. My total down time was 30 days of...

The SmartXide dot treatment is wonderfully effective...the transformation from before to after is crazy. My skin glows and is baby skin smooth! The vibrancy is so great that I don't even need to use foundation or blush. I average one treatment each year on my face and neck. I opt for the mild... READ MORE

I had my first Dot treatment with Dr. Gidon and recently received my 4th Dot treatment last week. I love Smartxide Dot Laser treatment compared to other lasers mainly because it is less painful for my skin type and dramatic results with one treatment. I am not a smoker or sun lover but I had...

I am 49 years old and was starting to see wrinkles and lax skin around my eye area, I had a complimentary consultation with Dr. Horton to discuss this. He recommended Botox and the Smart Dot resurfacing laser for the area to lift and tighten the skin. The procedure was well explained for me and... READ MORE

Only 5 days downtime - awesome result. Great to combine with blood plasma treatment (Platelet Rich Plasma). Use silicon for a day or two on skin - works so well. Skin is hot and red and swollen for a few days but then peels leaving your skin so soft and fresh. Have ice packs plenty of... READ MORE

I got the SmartXide DOT laser resurfacing for acne scars I've suffered with my entire adult life. My scars are not terribly deep but are dispersed over a large portion of my face. I'm also a fair-skinned freckle-face. I had the procedure on Monday, December 22 and today is Thursday... READ MORE

I've had acne scarring since I was about 17 or 18. I'm 22 now. I can't remember if the scars got worse with time, or worse with previous procedures. I've had: microdermabrasion (did nothing) chemical peels (I think scarred my face) silicone injections (was... READ MORE

I have been to a few plastic surgeons offices in Indianapolis over the last 10 years. I found the price for the Dot Laser to be much lower (it was offered on a Christmas special) and so I took my chances on a new experience with Dr. Chernoff's office. This office is a busy one, but a few of... READ MORE

The process was fast, it didn't hurt :). I have acne scars deep ones . This will be my 3rd session he doesn't go to deep because I have a high risk of pigmentation . My skin does look somewhat better then it did before I had nothing done. He knows what works best for your skin. I'm Hispanic/ Latino READ MORE

Day 1- Application of numbing cream comes first. During the procedure, I am kept comfortable under a blanket and warming pad. This feels great as there is a hose with cold air being blown on me during the treatment.The treatment is not unbearable. There is a slight amount of discomfort... READ MORE

After reading reviews I was a little nervous about this treatment to the point I rescheduled it twice. My dr reassured me I would love the results and it wasn't very painful. The downtime was supposed gj be 3 days. I still had the track marks in day 6! That part was true. I thought the... READ MORE

I was so excited to get this procedure done. I had erbium two years ago and LOVED and my new doctor in Chicago area said it would work better with less recovery time. I actually look older, horribly pasty and none of my fine lines are gone. Waste of money and depressing. I would strongly suggest... READ MORE
