Atlanta laser skin resurfacing is an effective non-surgical cosmetic procedure for men and women looking to address common skin problems such as:
- Wrinkles and lines
- Acne and wound scars
- Sun and age spots
- Pigmentation problems
With this procedure, Atlanta cosmetic surgeon Dr. Mark Crispin can quickly and effectively remove these imperfections from nearly any part of your body, and provide you with the clear, youthful, refreshed look you desire.
Pearl™ Laser Treatment
Dr. Crispin is pleased to offer our patients the most advanced laser skin resurfacing technology available. At our Atlanta plastic surgery office, Dr. Crispin utilizes the Pearl™ laser, a gentle but effective technology that removes imperfections while stimulating collagen growth. The production of collagen under your skin prompts the appearance of blemish free, youthful skin. Some facial injectables also promote collagen production.
This outpatient procedure generally takes 5 to 15 minutes, depending on the areas you are having treated and the extent of damage being removed. The laser only requires a topical anesthetic cream. The Pearl™ laser is extremely gentle, which greatly reduces downtime. Most patients require no more than two days to resume normal activities without any discomfort at all. Results become fully apparent within four to seven days.
CO2 Laser Resurfacing
Dr. Crispin offers CO2 laser resurfacing as well. CO2 treatment is effective at eliminating fine lines, deep wrinkles, scars, liver spots, and many other skin problems. Unlike the Pearl™ laser, the CO2 laser can remove several layers of skin in one treatment. This can greatly enhance your results, but will also increase your recovery period.
After CO2 lasering, new skin growth can be expected in 7 to 14 days. This new skin is greatly improved in appearance and texture although red. The redness following CO2 lasering can take 1 month to recede. During this time, some mild discomfort should be expected. Even with a longer recovery period, many patients prefer this method because it requires fewer treatments and produces more dramatic results. It is the gold standard laser.
The type of Atlanta laser skin resurfacing best suited to meet your needs will be determine during your initial consultation with Dr. Crispin.
