What do you think of Dot therapy for skin tightening on the face and neck?

I’ve been working with this laser for about 7 months now fairly intensively and I am very impressed.  It’s actually exceeded my expectations and those of you who read me frequently know I rarely say that.  It is so well engineered, completely customizable and the results with my patients have been outstanding. Again though, you have to use it for the right problem on the right person!  You don’t need this if you’re 35 and have minimal sun damage or just a couple of wrinkles on your face.  This laser is best for moderate to severe sun damage, with wrinkles and some laxity.  It will not correct a lot of sagging.  It does work fabulously on eyelids and I’ve had the most tissue tightening there – sometimes even close to that of surgery with 2 treatments. Here is more detailed information about the DOT and other factionated/pixilated CO2 lasers.  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
