Developed recently by Atlanta cosmetic and plastic surgeon, Dr. John LeRoy, Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing combines the power of DOT laser technology and his original Band Aid techniques to reduce the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, acne scarring, and lax skin of the face. Featured originally on the television show, The Doctors, for eye rejuvenation, Dr. LeRoy has combined this DOT laser technology along with the unique gentle numbing and procedural techniques of his original Band Aid Procedures.
During their segment on The Doctors, the developer of Cynosure’s SmartSkin DOT laser system discusses the advantage of using DOT laser treatment for areas too delicate for traditional laser procedures, such as the skin around the eyes and brow. Using tiny columns of CO2 energy to create microscopic perforations on the skin that the body then heals creating new, younger-looking skin cells, DOT laser technology offers patients dramatic facial rejuvenation results with relatively little downtime (typically, a few days and a reddish appearance similar to a sunburn on the treated skin).
Dr. LeRoy shares about the advantages of Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing with a DOT laser, “Laser skin treatment has come a long way. This newer DOT CO2 technology allows me to focus on very specific areas to erase skin imperfections as they emerge whereas original, scanning CO2 lasers treated the entire face and required significantly more recuperation.”
As discussed in his previous plastic surgery blogs on facial rejuvenation, Dr. LeRoy also likes this procedure because it is useful for not only those not yet in need of more extensive facial plastic surgery, but also for those who’ve previously had plastic surgery and wish to maintain their results.
