During your consultation at MedicSPA Gatineau, Dr. Berbari will determine how this cutting-edge laser skin treatment will benefit you in combination with other treatments, surgeries or injections.

General information

Known as DOT therapy, the use of this CO2 fractionated laser provides significant benefits to patients hoping to eliminate sun damage, wrinkles, discoloration, scarring, and looseness in their skin.

DOT therapy is performed using tiny pulses of fractional laser energy that Dr. Patricia Berbari or a member of her team 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, collagen and elastin 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 SmartSkin 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. Patricia Berbari and her team can balance the tone and complexion of your skin.

Life-changing Combinations

The SmartSkin DOT laser is designed to complement the results provided by other surgeries and procedures at Dr. Patricia Berbari‘s clinic. Because certain types of wrinkles and fine lines cannot be entirely eliminated with treatments such as face lifts or injectables, this resurfacing laser can finish the job.

By expertly combining the treatments that will work best for you, Dr. Patricia Berbari and her team 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.
