Deka Laser Q & A

What is the DEKA Laser?

The DEKA Laser is a fractional laser treatment that can target scars, lines, and blemishes on your skin that come with age. The treatment is noninvasive, which means that your skin isn’t penetrated in the process and you’ll have little or no discomfort.

The laser works by stimulating your skin’s production of collagen. Collagen is a substance that your body produces to give your skin structure and strengthens your bones and tissues. With age, you stop producing as much collagen, which is why your skin begins to wrinkle, fold, and loosen.

What are the benefits of the DEKA Laser?

The DEKA Laser has many benefits, making it a forerunner in the field of laser skin treatments. Benefits of DEKA Laser treatments include:

  • Smoother skin
  • Tighter skin
  • Smaller pores
  • Fewer wrinkles and lines
  • Quick healing
  • Minimal downtime
  • Little or no anesthesia

If you have other concerns with your skin, Dr. Brown can help you determine if treatment with the DEKA Laser will meet your needs. If you’re short on time and want to see quick results, the DEKA is a great option for you.

Is the DEKA Laser safe?

Generally, treatments with the DEKA Laser are safe, and severe side effects are rare. Less severe side effects that may occur include:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Itching
  • Skin color changes
  • Scarring

Redness and swelling usually go away within a couple of days of your treatment. If you have any concerns about the safety of the procedure, Dr. Brown and his team can thoroughly explain the risks and determine if the procedure is safe for you.

Do I need to schedule downtime after a DEKA Laser treatment?

You don’t need to schedule extra time after a DEKA Laser treatment for recovery unless you want to. With a three-treatment package at Dilworth Dermatology and Laser, you can enjoy optimal results with little, if any, downtime.

Gaping pores, loose skin, and rough texture can all make you appear much older than you are. If you want smooth, younger-looking skin, call or schedule an appointment online at Dilworth Dermatology and Laser to learn more about treatments with the DEKA Laser
