Halloween is here and for many of us, the day can bring on nostalgic feelings of dressing up as our favorite characters and indulging in sweet treats for days. Kids are quite resilient when it comes to their diet habits, but as we grow older, we can find that a poor nutrition plan can take a toll on our body in a negative way.

Eating too much sugar can be torture on your skin and your attitude, causing acne and sleeping problems, which can leave you feeling cranky and lethargic. Now with Halloween here and Christmas around the corner, the best thing to do on special occasions like this is to enjoy in moderation. Portion control and plenty of water will help lessen the negative effects, but if you’re still struggling with diet related skin-issues, we offer skin treatments that may be able to help.

Our Laser Skin Resurfacing procedures can address common skin conditions such as wrinkles and fine lines, acne and wound scars, sun and age spots, discoloration and pigmentation. A Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment is a brilliant way to do away with acne scars, age spots, wrinkles and blotches. As the name suggests, the skin that ‘resurfaces’ after the surgery is much more supple and younger looking. The procedure can be performed on the entire face or on specific segments such as the nose, eyes, or mouth.

Our new favorite technique is the Deka DOT laser. This laser produces youthful, refreshed results with a shorter recovery time thanks to the special SmartXide DOT (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) pattern technique. The impact left by the DOT is not as deep as other lasers, eliminating the chance for bruising or damage. Additionally, the technology allows for independent control of both the laser strength and dwell time, so we can tailor the treatment and recovery to your unique needs

If you’re looking for something a little more extensive, a CO2 Laser Treatment is useful for eliminating fine lines, deep wrinkles, scars, liver spots, and many other skin problems. 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. Even with a longer recovery period, many patients prefer this method because it requires fewer treatments and produces more dramatic results.

These laser options will help erase skin damage and scars, leaving you looking fresh-faced and feeling youthful. If you may be interested in the treatments, call us today at (404) 257-9888 to schedule an appointment! Happy Halloween!
