Day 5 – Post SmartDot Procedure
Day 5 It’s the morning of day five and you can see that the dry skin has completely all sloughed off of my face, so there’s still some redness around my eyes and mouth. And if you get a little bit closer, look at my neck. You can see that there’s still a little bit of the dry skin on my neck. I did apply a little bit of a thinner layer of aquaphor for today. One said Sandpaper we feel is is gone. A little Aquaphor goes a long way. When you have that sandpaper, you feel you do need to use a thicker layer. So that’s more comfortable.
And I would say that today would definitely be the day that if I were allowed to apply makeup, which of course I’m not. But if if we were allowed to apply makeup at this point, I would say I would feel comfortable going out and even returning to work. So again, this is the morning of day five and the progression of the healing process.
SmartXide is a fractional CO2 laser treatment that uses dermal optical thermolysis (aka DOT therapy) to treat skin conditions like wrinkles and fine lines, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, loss of elasticity, and acne scars. Traditional CO2 lasers are ablative, which means they remove the skin’s surface layer. They can be painful and require a week or more of downtime. The SmartXide laser is considered “micro-ablative”; it creates thousands of microscopic perforations, in a dot pattern. There’s no damage to the surrounding skin, so the area heals faster. It also stimulates collagen production more quickly.
Cincinnati facial plastic surgeon Dr. Jon Mendelson says, “The SmartXide laser has been one of the best skin resurfacing devices I’ve ever used. It basically treats most skin conditions, including sunspots, fine lines, lip lines, crow’s feet, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, rhinophyma, and other aging skin conditions very well. The only thing it doesn’t help with is broken blood vessels. For this we use intense pulsed light [IPL].” Because SmartXide doesn’t go as deep as traditional CO2 lasers, the treatment requires only topical anesthesia and isn’t considered painful—although you might feel some minor discomfort, often described as a stinging sensation. You’ll also receive protective eyewear. The treatment should take about an hou
