Laser Treatment: Skin Conditions and Cosmetic Procedures Lasers Can Treat

female-receives-Laser-TreatmentsDid you know that now is the best time to get a laser treatment? As the weather cools down, it makes it easier for you to give your skin the sun protection it needs before and after laser therapy. At Dermatology Associates of Atlanta, we offer laser treatments for a wide variety of skin conditions and cosmetic procedures. Read below to find out what lasers can do for you.

Acne and Acne Scars
Acne is an extremely common condition that affects adolescents and adults alike. Whether you are dealing with a current acne outbreak, acne scarring or anything in between, we offer laser treatments such as Isolaz® to specifically target uneven skin and improve certain types of acne or acne scars.

Visible Facial Veins
With age, veins tend to become more pronounced. Most notably, spider and facial veins can appear. To combat these unsightly veins, we use Vbeam® Prima and Foto Facial® IPL treatments to shrink unwanted veins without harming any surrounding skin.

Signs of Aging
As we get older, our skin starts to change. While wrinkles and age spots are natural, they can be an unwelcome surprise for those looking to retain their youthfulness. With multiple types of laser technology such as DOT Fractional Laser, Fraxel® and PicoSure® Skin Rejuvenation, we are able to minimize and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and age spots.

Hair Loss
Hair loss can occur for a number of reasons and has many possible treatments. One of those solutions for some patients is red light laser therapy. This device exposes your scalp to red-spectrum light which reduces inflammation and increases production in your hair follicles.

Uneven Skin Pigmentation
Uneven skin pigmentation comes in all shapes and sizes including birthmarks, hyperpigmentation (dark spots) and hemangioma (red spots). We offer various laser treatments, such as LaseMD™ Skin Rejuvenation and Vbeam® Prima, that are specifically tailored to combat dark spots, red spots and uneven skin tones.

Skin Cancer
For skin cancer and precancerous spots, getting prompt and thorough treatment can make a powerful difference in your health. Our laser procedures can be used to treat skin cancer as well as remove moles and repair uneven, sun-damaged skin.

Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is more popular than ever and our specialists have over 20 years of experience performing this treatment. Our treatments use heat to target the hair follicles in nearly any area of the body while not disturbing the surrounding skin.

Nail Fungus
Nail fungus occurs when fungus begins to grow on, under or within the nail. Our advanced laser treatment can penetrate the nail to kill the fungi and, for many patients, is a preferred alternative to topical and oral medications.

Unwanted Tattoos
Whether your tattoo has faded or you just don’t find it visually pleasing anymore, the option for removal is something that many find appealing. We offer multiple tattoo removal laser treatments including PicoWay, PicoSure™ and Lutronic® Spectra™ to seemingly erase tattoos of all shapes and colors.

Excessive Sweating
No one likes feeling sticky, having unpleasant body odor or dealing with sweat stains. Excessive underarm sweating can cause these symptoms and more. However, we offer miraDry® technology to combat sweating. This procedure works to eliminate a large percentage of underarm sweat glands to reduce sweat from the source.
