What Is Laser Resurfacing in Atlanta?
Laser resurfacing uses beams of light to remove layers of damaged skin so that new, smoother-looking skin can form. The procedure can diminish the appearance of wrinkles, sun spots, acne, hyperpigmentation, and scars. One of the main benefits of laser resurfacing is that it provides a more focused treatment than some other skin rejuvenation services. This means that your doctor can better target specific areas of your face, such as around the eyes and lips.
Dr. C. Carson Huynh and his skin rejuvenation specialists at Radiance Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine take pride in offering top-quality laser resurfacing, such as Full Ablation CO2 and DOT Therapy™ (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) and Laser Hair Removal.
What Is CO2 Laser Resurfacing in Atlanta?
CO2 laser resurfacing is typically used for deeper penetration into the skin. This procedure relies on beams of light that target problem areas, such as age spots, wrinkles, and scars. At Radiance Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine, CO2 laser surfacing enables patients to achieve younger-looking skin by removing the damaged layer and stimulating new growth.
The CO2 Laser Resurfacing Procedure
A full face or neck CO2 laser resurfacing is usually performed under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia to ensure that you are comfortable throughout the procedure. The area is cleansed and draped. Dr. Huynh directs the laser beam toward your skin imperfections. The laser quickly and accurately vaporizes the outermost layers of skin just four or five cells in thickness. The skin is then carefully cleansed, and a surgical dressing or ointment is applied to protect the underlying skin and facilitate healing.
Benefits of CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
- Turns the clock back on your appearance, revealing the more youthful skin underneath by smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines
- Lessens the appearance of scars and skin imperfections
- Treats uneven pigmentation, precancerous spots, photodamage, and lesions
- Provides a more thorough treatment of wrinkles and blemishes
- Safe and long lasting results
What Is DOT Therapy™?
DOT Therapy™ (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) is a new and exciting way of reversing the appearance of aged or sun-damaged skin, smoothing wrinkles, and reducing the appearance of acne or other scars. DOT Therapy™ is performed using the SmartXide DOT™ laser system.
What Will DOT Therapy™ Do for Me?
Wrinkles, skin discoloration, sun-spots, and skin laxity may be reduced or eliminated.
How Does DOT Therapy™ Work?
During the procedure, your doctor will apply a pattern of tiny scanned pulses of laser energy to your skin. The DOT Therapy™ laser precisely creates thousands of microscopic holes (dots) in your skin, which induce immediate skin tightening and stimulate new collagen growth.
How Many Treatments Are Required for DOT Therapy™?
In most cases, excellent results can be achieved in a single session. People with severe cases may need more treatment, spaced out monthly.
What Is Fractional Laser Resurfacing in Atlanta?
Fractional laser resurfacing relies on a grid-like pattern of light, rather than a solid beam, to correct imperfections of the skin. This less-invasive procedure can treat a variety of issues, including wrinkles, melasma, scarring, acne, age spots, and sun damage. Fractional laser resurfacing typically requires minimal healing time.
The Fractional Laser Resurfacing Procedure
Fractional laser resurfacing transmits a laser beam to the deep layers of the skin. These lasers will transmit heat to connective tissues, which effectively stimulates the body’s own production of collagen. The laser beams also help to even skin tones, thereby removing age spots, freckles, and acne scars. CO2 lasers will also help shrink pores, tighten skin, and remove fine lines and wrinkles.
Benefits of Fractional Laser Resurfacing
Some of the common benefits of fractional laser resurfacing include smoother skin texture, smaller looking pores, diminished acne scars and wrinkles, clearer unblemished skin, faded or eradicated sun spots, more even skin tone, and reduction or elimination of birthmarks such as port wine stains.
Individuals who have tried fractional laser resurfacing also say it reduces signs of fatigue, helps eliminate dark circles under the eyes, and creates a healthier natural glow.
