If you want an effective treatment for scars, wrinkles, or other skin imperfections, laser skin resurfacing can provide dramatic results. At Skin Care at 5th Ave in Peachtree, GA, we provide skin resurfacing with a fractional CO2 laser for patients in the greater Atlanta area, Fayetteville, and Newnan. Dr. Joseph Galitzin and his team of providers offer a wide range of laser skin treatments and can find the optimal solution for your unique skin type and the issues you wish to treat. With our advanced fractional CO2 laser, we can safely and effectively treat a variety of conditions, ranging from dark spots to deep wrinkles.
During this treatment, we use our state-of-the-art laser to carefully remove the topmost layers of your skin. By eliminating dead and damaged layers, laser skin resurfacing allows new skin cells to form. This process can provide tighter, younger-looking skin. We can also combine our fractional CO2 laser treatments with other skin care services to complement your results.
Here are just a few of the benefits that our greater Atlanta area patients have seen from their Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing treatments:
Laser skin resurfacing can address a wide range of flaws and imperfections, including:
Because treatment with CO2 lasers is more aggressive and can sometimes cause hyperpigmentation, we generally do not recommend it for patients with darker skin tones. However, we offer a range of other laser skin treatments. Dr. Galitzin can assess your skin during a consultation and determine which treatment option is best for your needs and goals.
The first step in getting Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing in the Atlanta area is to contact Skin Care at 5th Ave. and schedule a consultation. During this appointment, you will meet with Dr. Galitzin or an Aesthetic team member and be able to ask any questions you may have about the treatment, express your desires for results, and get a personal examination of your skin. You will also be asked about your medical history to avoid any unnecessary risks or side effects during or after your treatment. Once they have everything they need, a custom treatment plan will be made for you and our Patient Coordinator will be able to help you schedule your first session.
Laser skin resurfacing is a relatively short outpatient procedure. Depending on the size of the area being treated, treatment can take between 30 minutes and two hours. Before beginning, we will administer a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable. For more involved treatments targeting larger areas, we also offer sedation. Once you are comfortable, Dr. Galitzin or one of our technicians will use the fractional CO2 laser to precisely target skin imperfections. They may use the laser to stimulate collagen production below the skin surface or remove the outer layers of the skin. The specifics of your procedure will depend on the issues being treated and the extent of treatment required.
In general, more dramatic results require more in-depth treatments and a longer recovery. Recovery may take between 10 and 21 days. During the first 12 to 72 hours, you may feel itching or stinging. Some swelling is also normal for a few days after the procedure.
About a week after laser resurfacing, your skin will likely begin to peel. After the initial healing period, you can use oil-free makeup to minimize redness. It can take two or three months for the redness to fully disappear. It is crucial to use consistently broad-spectrum sunscreen after your skin resurfacing treatment as excessive skin exposure can affect your results.
The cost of Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing in the Atlanta area is based on multiple factors, including the size of the treatment area and how many sessions you will need. After coming in for your consultation and having a treatment plan made for you, our Patient Coordinator will be able to give you a breakdown of the total cost of your treatment.
