Patients should avoid blood thinning medications in the days leading up to treatment, and report any recent changes in health. The area should be clean and dry prior to treatment with no makeup on.
What is DOT Laser Therapy?
DOT Therapy, or Dermal Optical Thermolysis, can help to reverse the appearance of aged or sun-damaged skin, smoothing wrinkles and fine lines and minimising acne scars.
The procedure is customised to your skin by your doctor who adjusts the laser settings to obtain the best results for you. Your doctor will then apply a pattern of tiny scanned pulses of laser energy to your skin with a controlled laser.
Depending on the area to be treated, the procedure takes approximately 15-30 minutes and longer for larger areas.

How does DOT Laser Therapy work?
The DOT Therapy laser precisely creates thousands of microscopic holes (DOT’s) in your skin, which stimulates new collagen growth. DOT Therapy is designed to improve the skin’s texture and tone and to fight fine lines, deep wrinkles, and acne scars. DOT Therapy usually leaves islands of healthy tissue surrounding the microscopic DOTs. This enables your skin to heal more rapidly and minimises overall damage.
The addition of radiofrequency therapy (RF) will also assist in skin tightening and can reduce the recovery time. Please note, this will be at an additional cost.
The machine is a true laser and only doctors should perform this treatment.
What happens on the day of the procedure?
Emla numbing cream can be applied or gas can be used to make the treatment more comfortable for patients. Eye shields will be placed in situ to protect the eyes.
What happens after the procedure?
Patients will generally experience minimal discomfort after treatment; however, some patients can experience some tenderness, swelling or pain. This can be relieved by applying ice to the area.
Aftercare instructions should be strictly followed. Usually, this involves icing and the use of a bland moisturiser. The skin should be kept lightly moist for at least two days.
Post-treatment downtime can be from one day to one week. This treatment has variable outcomes and the average is usually 3-4 treatments. It is wise to sleep with an extra pillow, to reduce swelling and take a daily antihistamine. Please see our Resources section below for more information.
