Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser Skin Resurfacing helps in slow down the aging process.

Laser skin resurfacing treatment safely vaporizes layers of skin to restore and refine skin and increase collagen production, which helps slow down the aging process. Laser skin resurfacing at Atlanta Institute for Facial Aesthetic Surgery is accomplished through the CO2 laser, which is powerful for overall tightening and deep wrinkle removal.

Dr. Sinha customizes each laser treatment based on the needs and desired downtime of each patient. Lighter surface level correction requires less treatment while deeper wrinkles, tightening and re-contouring require more.

Our technology allows for the flexibility of 5-100% coverage in a single pass of the laser, indicating that the depth of coverage is highly customizable for every patient. This tailored technique is made possible in part by the UltraPulse® laser, which targets everything from discoloration and fine lines to deep wrinkles and scars. Our doctors may use the UltraPulse Active FX for fine lines and brown spots or the UltraPulse Deep FX for deep collagen stimulation.

CO2 Laser Technology

  • CO2 Active FX™: Ideal for removing dull surface skin, reducing facial discoloration, improving skin texture and eliminating blemishes and scars. In addition, CO2 Active FX ablates or “wipes away” the upper layers of the skin. It requires a few days downtime and a topical pain relieving cream for comfort during the procedure.
  • CO2 Medium-Level (Total FX™ or Deep FX): Best for those seeking a more medium-level laser skin treatment. Patients can expect to be red for 8-10 days but will enjoy wrinkle improvement and skin tightening in addition to the benefits of the light laser peel for improved, tone, color and texture.
  • CO2 Deep-Level Laser Treatment: Used to stimulate new collagen growth in the dermis layer of the skin, effectively removing deep wrinkles and restructuring and restoring skin to a healthier state. This laser technology will leave you with firmer, smoother and younger-looking skin.

Laser Skin Resurfacing AtlantaDuring your consultation, we will help you select the most appropriate laser based on your skin resurfacing needs. The procedure takes place in a licensed ambulatory surgical center adjacent to our office. The patient is typically put into twilight sedation for most medium-level treatments, meaning that the patient will remain conscious but not necessarily awake.

Patients will be put under general anesthesia for deep-level laser resurfacing. Light-level treatment requires only a topical anesthetic. The laser will then be used on the specified treatment areas using a variety of techniques, depths, and settings.

For deeper skin issues such as heavy scars, the area of treatment may need to be treated again in a follow-up visit. Patients are often advised to apply a facial cream in the weeks leading up to a follow-up appointment.

Recovery From Laser Skin Resurfacing

Depending on the patient, you may experience swelling and mild discomfort after the procedure, but these are well-controlled with ice and medication.

If a deeper technique is used, you cannot drive home and will need assistance until the anesthesia wears off. Specific recovery instructions related to your customized laser treatment will be outlined.

Please contact us for a consultation to determine if laser skin resurfacing is right for you.

Vital"I was really nervous about having rhinoplasty but Dr. Sinha showed me images of how my nose was going to end up looking and told me that it was going to be something easy to work with. Everything he had explained turned out just as he said it would and everything turned out perfect, actually even better, because he didn't change my face. He didnot change my nose, he just fixed the wrong thing that I had. " Rhinoplasty Patient

Dr. Sinha is very patient and listens, actually encourages, questions. His staff seems to be attentive, so I have been satisfied. Itas hard for me to give anybody 100%, but Dr. Sinha is pretty darn good." Face Lift Patient
Vitals Logo"Dr. Sinha performed a liquid facelift on me that involved a combination of botox and fillers. I look 20 years younger! Eople can"t figure out why i look so much better and its only been 2 weeks!" Face Lift Patient
Yelp Logo"I originally had the laser procedure for acne scars. Unfortunately, I did not noticed much difference from it. Luckily, Dr. Sinha offered complementary microneedling since my results were disappointing. The microneedling worked much better--in 1 session I noticed more of a difference than with the laser, with much less downtime. I would highly recommend this less publicized procedure!"Malia M.
