Did you know the cosmetic dermatologists at Ideal Body Institute can use lasers to make your skin look healthier, younger, and more vibrant? Laser skin treatments – also known as laser skin resurfacing – can minimize lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and sun damage by removing damaged skin to reveal new skin underneath.
How do the laser treatments make you look younger?
Laser skin resurfacing treatments allow our cosmetic dermatologists to precisely target facial skin irregularities like acne scars and skin damage, as well as wrinkles and lines. The laser system can remove the layer of damaged skin cells, allowing new skin cells to be revealed, giving you a more youthful appearance.
The two kinds of laser resurfacing are:
- Erbium laser: Removes moderately deep and surface-level wrinkles and lines from your chest, hands, face, or neck. It causes less damage to nearby tissue, which means a quicker recovery with fewer side effects.
- CO2 laser: Can be used to treat skin issues like large oil glands on your nose, warts, scars, wrinkles, etc. It uses a scanning pattern with continuous beams of light or ultra-pulses (rapid pulsed light energy) to remove the damaged skin layers. Although it causes only nominal heat damage, recovery takes a little longer.
What are laser treatments like at Ideal Body Institute in Atlanta?
Your laser skin resurfacing treatment will be in our multi-specialty surgery center as an outpatient procedure. Full-face laser treatments can last up to two hours, and our cosmetic dermatologists will apply the appropriate anesthesia for you. Laser treatments on smaller areas, such as to treat the forehead, smile lines, and frown lines, generally take 30 to 45 minutes. We apply local anesthesia to numb the areas. After the treatments, the treated area will be bandaged in some cases, depending on the extent of your treatment. You will be able to leave shortly after your appointment.
