What Is Cartessa SmartXide Tetra CO2 by Deka Laser?

The SmartXide Tetra laser system is a CO2 laser that is used primarily for laser skin resurfacing. Laser skin resurfacing is a term that refers to the rejuvenation of the superficial appearance of the skin, primarily for textural and pigmentation concerns.

Like other CO2 lasers, this laser system can address a wide variety of concerns without any significant downtime. 

On the skin, a carbon dioxide laser works by penetrating the upper layers of the skin by creating microscopic damage on the skin surface, which then allows heat to reach the lower layers of the skin.

With this method, collagen production in the sub-dermal layers of the skin can increase to rejuvenate skin texture, while the superficial layers of the skin will overturn new skin cells to correct pigmentation concerns.

What Can This Laser Treat?

This laser treatment is designed to address both sub-dermal and superficial skin concerns. In fact, because this treatment can be tailored to the exact intensity your skin needs for total resurfacing and rejuvenation, the treatment system is one of the most versatile available.

With this laser system, you can easily address:

  • Acne scars
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
  • Wrinkles
  • Dark spots
  • Sun damage
  • Skin laxity

Why Is This Laser So Effective?

Although it can be argued that any CO2 laser treatment is highly effective, there is something special about the SmartXide Tetra laser system. In particular, this laser has four different pulse modes, which essentially means the intensity and pattern of the laser can be tailored to fit your skin needs and aesthetic goals. There are three fractional modes, which spread the intensity of the laser across the skin in a microscopic pattern, as well as a CW mode for general use. 

Another special thing about this laser system is the amount of control your skin expert will have over the operation of the device. The laser system has a handpiece that allows your skin expert to make real-time alterations to the intensity of the treatment. The unique modes for this system also create more versatility and precision, such as the “spray” mode to avoid overlapping the treatment area.

Who Are Good Candidates?

Generally speaking, most people are good candidates for this CO2 laser treatment. The SmartXide Tetra laser is compatible with most skin types, skin concerns, and skin tones. In fact, the only people who are excluded from this type of laser treatment are those who are pregnant, those with very deep skin tones, and those who have severe wrinkles that may be treated more easily with other treatments.

Skin Resurfacing Made Easy

Laser skin resurfacing treatments may be the key to unlocking your perfect skin. A CO2 laser system such as this one is powerful, versatile, and highly effective for treating a variety of aesthetic concerns.
