Innovations in laser technology now allow MetroDerm, P.C. in Atlanta, GA, to address a variety of dermatological conditions in a manner that is safe, efficient, minimally discomforting, and highly effective. Our skincare experts use laser treatments to improve the appearance of skin, remove unwanted hair, remove tattoos, and more.

Laser resurfacing can improve the appearance of skin by treating minor skin flaws. It can decrease the appearance of lines and improve the complexion in patients with scars and sun damage. MetroDerm, P.C. uses two lasers for skin rejuvenation:

  • The Fractional CO2 Laser delivers all the benefits of ablative laser resurfacing without the harsh side effects typically experienced with CO2 lasers, as it vaporizes the tissue in small areas, leaving surrounding areas uninjured. The laser’s light energy encourages natural collagen production and decreases the appearance of wrinkles. More than one treatment is usually necessary to achieve optimal results. Your doctor will be able to provide an estimate for the number of treatments you may need. Learn more+

Patients can receive this laser treatment at the Johnson Ferry/Perimeter location.

  • The Erbium-YAG Laser removes the upper layers of skin so that, upon healing, wrinkles are diminished. Patients who are treated with this laser often experience more rapid healing, but less dramatic results than those who opt for the Fractional CO2 laser. Several treatments (three to five) are usually required to achieve optimal results. Your doctor will be able to provide an estimate for the number of treatments you need.

A series of laser treatments can really make a difference in skin tone.  Firming the facial tissue minimizes wrinkles and evens skin tone. Your doctor at MetroDerm will analyze your skin and help you decide which laser treatment would be most helpful.

Each patient is unique; therefore, results of treatment may vary.

Patients can receive this laser treatment at The Center for Plastic Surgery at MetroDerm at the Johnson Ferry location in Atlanta, GA.
