INDIANAPOLIS, July 3 Laugh lines, crow's feet, brownspots, and wrinkles are inevitable signs of aging, but all that is about tochange thanks to the most advanced technology in laser skin resurfacing.Through a newly-formed alliance between Eclipsemed Ltd., one of the country'sleading aesthetic laser distributors since 1993, and DEKA, one of the world'slargest and best-known laser manufacturers, DOT Therapy (Dermal OpticalThermolysis) is now the state-of-the-art procedure in laser skin resurfacing.

C. William Hanke, MD, board certified dermatologist, laser surgeon,dermapathologist, and Mohs mircrographic surgeon, is among the firstphysicians in the United States to use DOT Therapy on his patients. Dr. Hankeis an internationally renowned dermatologist, who is in private practice inIndianapolis and is also Clinical Professor at Indiana School of Medicine.

The SmartXide DOT system is an advanced CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser made inItaly by DEKA and has received clearance from the Food & Drug Administration.The CO2 laser is the most common type of laser used for skin resurfacing:thoroughly proven and tested. CO2 lasers of the past covered the entiresurface of the skin, resulting in a significant amount of downtime to heal,discomfort for the patient and prolonged redness of the skin. In addition, theold CO2 lasers could not treat non-facial areas like the neck and decolletageeasily because skin in these areas did not heal as well as the face.

According to Dr. Hanke, "DOT Therapy is the new standard in laser facialresurfacing. The effectiveness of DOT Therapy is unparalleled. What makes DOTTherapy so special is its range of options. My patients are delighted that wecan now customize treatments to meet their exact skin requirements and arethrilled with the results: wrinkle-free, smooth, firm and radiant skin --without enduring pain or downtime."

DOT Therapy is taking laser skin resurfacing to a whole new level. Thenew procedure precisely delivers CO2 laser energy to targeted areas on theface or non-facial areas like the neck and decolletage, and effectively treatssun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scarring. Unlike any other skinresurfacing CO2 laser, the SmartXide DOT laser system is unique because itablates a customized pattern of tiny, micro-sized dots, rather than the entireskin surface. This results in excellent improvement in the skin's texture,laxity, wrinkles and acne scars with very short recovery times (usually 4 to 7days).
