Deka DOT Overview
Sagging folds and wrinkles resulting from sun damage and the natural aging process can make a person look worn, old, and angry. Aesthetic medicine has been employing laser skin resurfacing to resolve the effects of aging on the neck and face for decades. While traditional laser skin resurfacing has rejuvenated so many successfully, the new Deka DOT laser treatment system gets the same results without the downtime.
A reliable and safe laser skin resurfacing technique, Deka DOT laser resurfaces damaged and dull skin to improve its tone and texture. It offers another option in revitalizing skin health for patients looking to enhance their anti-aging and skincare regimen. This ablative skin resurfacing technology rejuvenates the skin by improving skin texture, pigmentation irregularities, and fine lines. Just one treatment session achieves long-lasting results.
What Deka DOT Corrects
Deka Dot resolves multiple skin issues, including:
- Skin laxity
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Freckles and sunspots
- Scars and acne scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sagging neck and facial skin
This remarkable ablative fractional laser treatment revives skin health by resolving most skin issues, including lifting skin that sags around the eyes.
Suitable candidates for Deka DOT skin treatments have mild wrinkling, uneven textures, or photo-damaged skin. Patients who have sagging skin around the eyes might consider a Madonna Eye Lift using our Deka DOT system.
The Deka DOT Consultation
As a triple board-certified plastic surgeon in Santa Barbara, Dr. Sara Yegiyants, MD, FACS takes her non-surgical procedures just as seriously as any surgical treatment.
We encourage each patient to come to the initial consultation with a list of questions. This preparation allows Dr. Yegiyants to be more informative about the procedure and address any concerns patients have.
After evaluating her patient’s facial skin and learning their cosmetic goals, Dr. Yegiyants will explain surgical and non-surgical approaches and provide recommendations that help the patient get the best results for their age, medical history and skin condition.
The Deka Dot Difference
The Deka DOT procedure delivers dramatic improvement, long-lasting results, and short recovery and downtime. This fractional laser technology allows us to target specific areas allowing the healthy skin to surround the micro-wounds created by the procedure.
Before administering any treatment, Dr. Yegiyants will evaluate, clean, and apply a topical anesthetic cream. Next, she will distribute the Deka DOT laser over the treatment site, targeting fine lines, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin textures, and other skin blemishes. She can apply the laser over the target site several times. She then applies a medical-grade ointment or serum to sooth and cool the skin.
The Madonna Eyelift
Patients frustrated by drooping eyelids and dark undereye circles but hesitant about a surgical eyelift may want more information about the Madonna Eyelift, which triggers natural collagen production. Its ability to deal with hyperpigmentation issues will also minimize dark undereye circles making you look young, alert, and happy.
How Does Deka DOT Work?
This laser skin resurfacing eliminates surface-level wrinkles and lines by delivering more ablative energy to the skin tissues than any other lasers. This state-of-the-art technology in laser design can adjust energy levels to get the optimal depth and combing with adjustable-duration low energy pulse to get the right thermal energy necessary.
It’s the ability to adjust both depth and energy levels that sets it apart from most other ablative laser skin resurfacing systems.
Deka DOT Recovery
Recovery after treatment from this skin resurfacing system is typically mild. You may feel a sensation akin to mild to severe sunburn, but this subsides within seven to ten days. We will suggest applying a moisturizer for the first week as well and a hydrating ointment like petroleum jelly. Most patients resume their routine with a week.
Patients can resume applying makeup and their skincare routine once the skin has fully peeled. To ensure proper healing, we recommend an SPF broad-spectrum sunscreen (at least 30) for protection against the UV rays.
Other Skin Treatments to Consider
Dr. Yegiyants offer other non-surgical skincare treatments that are designed to keep you looking young and healthy. They include:
- Acne Treatments
- Chemical Peels
- PRP Therapy
- Stretch Mark Treatments
- Skin Care Products

While having fun in the sun is a staple activity in Southern California, it can be harmful to your skin. Over time it can make you look older than your years. With the Deka DOT Laser, the effects of aging because of overexposure to the sun is transformed back to your skin’s youthful radiance.
Probably not. Deka DOT is wholly tailored to your specific needs and skin issues. We will explain how we will treat your skin through the Deka DOT system and what results you can expect. There are no two patients alike, and as such, the treatments should vary as well.
The number of sessions depends on the severity of your issues. Many of our patients are satisfied after one treatment, while others may need one or two more to get the results they want. You will have a better idea once you come for your consultation.
Results are not immediate because collagen regeneration will take time. Expect to see your complete results within two to six months.
- No. You will feel no pain during the treatment, and your recovery is very tolerable as well. You may feel like a bit of a sunburn which can be addressed with ointments and serums
