Laser Spot Removal in Atlanta, GA
Unsightly blemishes on your face can make you feel self-conscious and embarrassed when you are interacting with others. You may have reached a point where you have given up on ever achieving clean, clear, evenly-toned skin.
At Northside Plastic Surgery, are here to help you bring out the most beautiful version of yourself. When it comes to facial blemishes, we have two distinct treatments that have been scientifically developed to address varying forms of blemishes. Whether you suffer from rosacea, age spots, freckles, or even a port-wine stain – we have the technology to treat hyperpigmentation effectively.
The benefits of the Alexandrite Laser
If you search the internet for laser skin treatments, you are likely to find thousands of results. Each laser system claims to work miracles and work for a wide range of conditions. At Northside Plastic Surgery, we do not subscribe to the “one miracle to cure everything” philosophy, and instead, focus on which treatment will work best for each condition. The Alexandrite Laser is one of most effective treatments available to target the brown melanin cells in your skin and comes with many benefits:
- Highly effective at reducing or removing all types of brown spots on your skin
- Comfortable and tolerable treatment
- Rapid results, with most spots disappearing in a matter of weeks
- No downtime
Am I a candidate for the Alexandrite Laser?
The Alexandrite Laser is safe for most individuals who suffer brown pigmentation on the skin, though this treatment may not be right for those who have naturally dark or tanned skin. The risk of complications is virtually nonexistent, and the procedure is safe for patients of any age.
What to expect with an Alexandrite Laser treatment?
When you arrive for spot removal with the Alexandrite Laser, we will begin with an in-person consultation and analysis of your skin. We identify and mark each spot that needs to be removed, and then we apply a numbing cream on the targeted areas for increased comfort.
Once the numbing cream has taken effect, we proceed with the treatment. The procedure takes from fifteen to thirty minutes to complete, and most patients report only a slight sting with each application of the laser. Once the treatment is complete, you can expect your skin to be a bit red with bumpy areas where the laser was applied, though this usually resolves within a few days. If you undergo Alexandrite Laser on your face, you can reapply makeup shortly after completing the procedure to camouflage any residual redness.
Your results from an Alexandrite Laser treatment
Within three to five weeks, you can expect the treated spots to be gone dramatically reduced. Some people require two or three treatments to achieve optimal results, but even a single treatment can make a visible difference.
Eradicating blemishes with the Nd:YAG laser
For many, the blemishes on their face are not simple freckles but instead are more visible, colored skin conditions such as:
For these, there is no better option than the Nd:YAG laser, which uses precise light energy frequencies to target the damaged and pigmented cells in your skin. This highly customizable laser system allows us to target the type of hyperpigmentation on your skin, rather than a generic treatment.
The benefits of the Nd:YAG laser treatment
Undergoing laser therapy with the Nd:YAG system comes with several benefits:
- Safely and effectively remove unsightly blemishes
- Tighter, firmer skin
- Reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Improve skin tone
- Safe and gentle treatment
- No downtime
Am I a candidate for hyperpigmentation treatments with Nd:YAG?
You may be a candidate for Nd:YAG if you suffer from any of the following conditions:
- Unsightly birthmarks
- Port wine stains in visible areas
- Enlarged blood vessels and facial redness
- Red spots
- Enlarged pores
What to expect during my Nd:YAG treatment?
The first step is always an in-person consultation to understand your aesthetic goals and determine which treatments and lasers will be most effective for you. To begin, we will apply numbing cream over the targeted areas for added comfort, which usually takes 20 to 30 minutes to take effect. Once your skin is ready, we will apply the laser to the targeted areas in bright bursts, each of which may feel like a rubber band snapping with a slight sting. The average treatment takes about 45 minutes.
Once all areas have been treated, you can expect your skin to be slightly red and feel mildly sunburned, and your skin may swell a little bit. You will be able to return to your daily life activities immediately following treatment, and the redness usually dissipates within a matter of hours. Your blemishes will begin to darken over the following one to two weeks, after which they will begin to fade and disappear.
