Aesthetics Skin Treatment >> Laser Resurfacing
Our highly trained doctors are recognized in the Atlanta area as masters of laser resurfacing, the modern cosmetic art that gives your face a younger, healthier appearance. Common signs of aging on the skin’s surface are superficial wrinkling, and blotchy pigmentation. Using a very precise laser, our specialists can vaporize the affected skin cells, one layer at a time, until you have smooth, healthy skin. Because laser treatment reaches deeper than other resurfacing techniques, we perform laser resurfacing with local anesthesia and oral sedation, or general anesthesia. After the laser resurfacing procedure, the affected area is covered , the patient will cleanse the area with a mild solution a few times each day, and then apply moisturizing ointments to prevent scab formation. The post-surgical care may take from 10 to 21 days, depending on the patient and the area treated. Our skin care specialists will show you how to use special medical-grade makeup to cover the temporary pink to red skin color that results from laser resurfacing. For most patients, normal skin color will return in two to three months. When it’s all over, your skin will look years younger. If you suffer from excessive wrinkling, thinning, or pigment blotches of the skin, contact the offices of double board certified, facial plastic surgeon Marc Yune, M.D.
CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing: Using advanced laser technology, a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser for skin resurfacing precisely removes outer layers of damaged skin to reveal the underlying skin which is softer, smoother, and younger looking. The CO2 laser is used in the treatment of deep facial lines and wrinkles. This procedures requires a consultation with Dr. Yune and is done at the hospital under general anesthesia.
