Laser Skin Rejuvenation, Atlanta

Newest Technology

Fractional Skin Rejuvenation Dermatology Specialists of Atlanta have the newest in fractional laser skin technology. The Palomar fractional skin resurfacing laser is designed to target aging and sun damaged skin by zeroing in on damaged tissue.

Until the development of fractional laser technology, there was only ablative laser skin rejuvenation which gave tremendous results but required the patient to stay out of the public view for a long time. Although these lasers are still used and considered safe, they caused more pain during the treatment and don’t work any better than the newer version carried by Dermatology Specialists of Atlanta.

Now there is the non-ablative laser treatment that has little or no side effects and almost no healing time, but requires multiple treatments within an extended period of time.

How is the Palomar Laser Different?

The laser that Dermatology Specialists of Atlanta uses is similar to the Fraxel laser in that it only treats a portion of the skin, 20% to 25%, during each session. Also, it is not necessary to use any lotion or topical anesthetic, making the treatment session very pleasant for the patient. This laser is specifically designed to be very mild, even for a fractional laser. Also, their fractional laser has a unique sapphire cooling tip, which cools the skin during the procedure and minimizes any discomfort.

During the treatment, hundreds of tiny high-precision micro-beams are directed at the skin, creating narrow, deep columns into the medium layers of the skin. During the natural healing process, new collagen is formed to improve skin texture, sun damage, pore size and acne scars.

Dr. Kathleen J. Smith can advise you as to whether or not Fractional Skin Resurfacing is the right treatment for you particular problem, but the procedure is used for all of theses conditions:

  • Uneven or rough skin texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Imperfections in the skin’s surface
  • Fine and moderate wrinkles
  • Dull and dark appearance to skin
  • Pigmentation issues
  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Scars, including acne scarring
  • Crow’s feet

How Many Treatments Will You Need?

A lot depends on the ultimate results that you desire, as well as, the current condition of your skin. For most people, you will need 3 to 5 fractional laser treatments to get the full effect of the laser. The treatments can be spaced as little as two weeks apart, but they can also be spaced further apart if you have a demanding schedule. If you only get one or more treatments, and then decide to stop, you will still maintain the results.

Dermatology Specialists of Atlanta believe that their new Palomar Fractional laser is the best on the market and provide you with excellent, youth generating results.
