Laser Skin Treatment Gatineau and Ottawa
Skin rejuvenation has reached a new level with the SmartXide DOT laser skin treatment, available at the Gatineau plastic surgery practice of Dr. Patricia Berbari. Known as DOT therapy, the use of this CO2 laser provides incredible benefits to patients hoping to eliminate sun damage, wrinkles, discoloration, scarring, and looseness in their skin. Injectable treatments and plastic surgery cannot always correct all fine lines and wrinkles, so Dr. Berbari has chosen to provide DOT therapy to focus on these imperfections. During your consultation at our Gatineau practice, Dr. Berbari will determine how this laser skin treatment will benefit you in combination with other surgeries or injections. SmartXide DOT therapy can be used to complement other procedures as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.

General Information about DOT Therapy
DOT therapy is performed using tiny pulses of laser energy that Dr. Berbari will carefully apply to your skin. These laser pulses create thousands of microscopic holes in your skin, hence the name DOT therapy. The formation of these dots immediately stimulates skin tightening and collagen production. One of the unique aspects of DOT therapy is that it leaves healthy tissue around each hole intact to reduce healing time and minimize damage. Completely customizable to your skin type, the SmartXide DOT laser can be adjusted prior to and during the procedure to provide smooth, virtually flawless results. By adjusting the laser to appropriately treat acne scars, sunspots, and fine lines, Dr. Berbari can balance the tone and complexion of your skin.
The advantages of undergoing the SmartXide DOT laser skin treatment at our Gatineau office can be enjoyed in a number of different ways. Not only can you achieve smoother, more youthful-looking skin, but you can do so in under an hour and with minimal downtime. Patients who have chosen our new CO2 laser treatment have experienced:
- Reduction in aged and sun damaged skin
- Improvement in the elasticity and quality of their skin
- Elimination of or reduction in the appearance of acne and scarring
- A smoother, healthier-looking complexion
In addition to these amazing results, our patients also choose DOT therapy because it can be completed in less than an hour. The CO2 laser is incredibly safe, so the therapy presents very little risk. This minimally invasive option is an added alternative to plastic surgery, as it involves mild or no anesthesia, a brief appointment, and incredibly rapid recovery.
The SmartXide DOT laser is designed to complement the results provided by other surgeries and procedures. Because certain types of wrinkles and fine lines cannot be entirely eliminated with treatments such as face lifts or injectables, this ablative laser can finish the job. By expertly combining the treatments that will work best for you, Dr. Berbari can provide you with the look you desire. During your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Berbari, she will discuss which procedures will work best for you. Your questions and concerns will be addressed during this appointment to ensure that you are informed of your options and well prepared on the day of treatment.
