End of Day 3 – Post SmartDot Procedure
It’s the end of day three. You can see that a lot of the of the dead skin has come off. You can see over here a lot of that pink skin coming through. The brown is, of course, where it’s still dry and the neck seems to be moving a little bit more slowly, as far as you know, shedding of that dead skin.
So the forehead, too. So all this is nice, soft new pink skin feels really, really good. And then again, we still have the dryness here, so I don’t know if you can kind of hear. That sandpaper sound so that still, you know, is definitely very, very dry and rough. But, you know, I did wash in extra time today, so I washed this morning in the shower.
Then I did wash my face with the Cetaphil again around lunchtime and applied Aquaphor . And then I just wash my face again. You know, at the end of the day, I have not yet applied to report. So this is what you’re seeing before the Aquaphor is applied before bed. So again, this is the end of day three post procedure 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 hour.
