SmartXide - DOT Laser Skin Sun-Damage Reversal Technology

The Aesthetic Beauty Centre has a comprehensive portfolio of treatments for the rejuvenation of skin. SmartXide offers the fastest and most effective way for the non-invasive revitalisation of skin from sun damage. Harnessing the technologies of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Fractional laser means that most patients of any age and skin type I-IV can achieve a uniform result.

The sun gives off Ultra-Violet (UV) light that damages your skin and causes sunburn. Over time, the sun’s rays can lead to fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots meaning that you can easily suffer from premature ageing, with research showing that UV exposure can contribute up to 80% of your skin's aging. The skin's epidermal (outer) layer contains cells that store the pigment Melanin. It is this pigment which protects the skin’s surface from the sun's UV rays, which can burn the skin and deplete its elasticity over time, leading to visible premature ageing.

¨Laser skin resurfacing is an excellent treatment to reduce facial wrinkles and skin irregularities, such as sun damage and surface blemishes. The laser resurfacing technique directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of laser light at the affected skin areas, removing any skin damage layer by layer. For more severe sun damage, the use of fractionated CO2 laser would be more beneficial. This laser can be used for a range of sun damage from mild to severe, and is the industry benchmark for the treatment of moderate sun damaged skin.¨ - Wendy Dutta (Chief Aesthetic Nurse)

SmartXide is one of the most effective ways to treat sun damage,  differential textures and pigmentation which primarily occurs on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands. SmartXide treatment has the advantage of minimal downtime.

Chief Surgeon Dr Ashish Dutta and his team at the Aesthetic Beauty Centre were one of the first clinics in the United Kingdom to initiate this pioneering type of treatment to eliminate the visible appearance and impact of sun damage. With SmartXide, the laser uses a CO2  fractional system which houses a very responsive scanner with the capacity to undertake specific ´DOT resurfacing´. This skin treatment produces a resultant tightening of the skin which can help to greatly reduce and repair sun damage.

The Aesthetic Beauty Centre operates with a fully qualified team of medical professionals; managed by Dr Ashish Dutta and Wendy Dutta who will discuss the procedure in detail during the initial consultation along with the advantages, benefits and any side effects you may experience. All after care advice will also be given
