Despite the constant innovation in skincare treatments and non-surgical options, laser treatments still stand out as some of the most effective skin resurfacing options. CO2 lasers are especially effective at producing rejuvenating results with few treatments, making them one of the best options to address a wide variety of concerns with a customizable treatment package. Dr. DiFrancesco offers the SmartXide DOT® CO2 Laser system for patients looking to address concerns like sun damage and aging with quick and easy laser treatments.
What is SmartXide DOT® CO2 Laser?
The SmartXide DOT® CO2 Laser system is a micro-ablative, fractional skin rejuvenation option. During treatment, this laser treatment generates microscopic perforations in the skin to stimulate new collagen growth and cause skin contraction. This process leaves the surrounding skin intact, rapidly jumpstarting your skin’s natural wound-healing mechanisms. The result is rejuvenated, tightened skin using either a series of small treatments or one more aggressive treatment.
Candidates for SmartXide DOT® CO2 Laser
Many different skin types can benefit from CO2 laser treatment. It can most effectively address signs of aging and pigmentation, as well as many other skin concerns. During a consultation with Dr. DiFrancesco, we’ll assess your skincare goals and create the ideal treatment package for you using our CO2 laser system and selection of other non-surgical skin rejuvenation options.

SmartXide DOT® CO2 Laser Procedure
This treatment can be performed in our Atlanta office with the use of a topical anesthetic so that you’re relaxed and comfortable. The specialized laser handpiece is applied to the treatment area using a precise grid-pattern for complete and even treatment. As the laser energy is administered, it stimulates the deep layers of the skin to generate collagen and turn over new skin cells. Afterwards, you can return home.
SmartXide DOT® CO2 Laser Results and Maintenance
Dr. DiFrancesco will ensure you have detailed aftercare instructions to follow. Most patients require two or three treatment sessions to address their skincare goals, but you may also opt for a single, more aggressive treatment that comes with more downtime. You can expect some redness and sensitivity afterward, but this subsides within a few days. At around one month after the procedure, you’ll begin to see the effects of new collagen production as the skin tightens and renews.
