What are Laser Treatments?
Cosmetic laser systems use a combination of high-energy light and heat to target specific cosmetic problems in the skin. The systems are designed with certain specifications to ensure that only the targeted tissue is affected while preserving surrounding tissues. At Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta, we utilize a wide variety of lasers to perform the following treatments:
Excel V™ Laser

This quick, comfortable and convenient treatment offers a number of benefits:
- Little to no downtime and no special preparation
- Suitable for all skin types
- Safe to use on face, legs, and body

Treat wrinkles and redness and manage large pores and skin texture with Laser Genesis™ skin therapy. It is an innovative, technologically advanced way to promote vibrant and healthy-looking skin in men and women. Now you can have a youthful appearance by treating those conditions that are typically associated with premature signs of aging and sun damage, such as excessive redness, large pores, uneven texture, and fine-line wrinkles. The Laser Genesis™ procedure has been scientifically proven to produce new collagen.
Deka Dot Laser
The Deka Dot laser system uses SmartPulse technology to control depth and thermal injury, allowing physicians to uniquely tailor procedures to the patient’s specific needs. Tailored treatments offer patients superior control over skin issues while limiting recovery time. The Deka Dot laser offers quick procedure times, benefiting the patient.
The Deka Dot laser offers a full range of skin resurfacing capabilities. Deeper, full skin resurfacing can be performed, as well as the most delicate of treatments – all from the same instrument! With the ability to deliver more ablative power than other lasers, yet depth and duration can be precisely controlled to deliver the exact treatment needed for a patient’s unique skin issues. The Deka Dot system is the most advanced CO2 laser system available!
PiQo4™ & PicoFractional™
PiQo4™ by Lumenis treats a wide range of skin conditions by using non-thermal energy to target discoloration. The FDA-approved laser is the most advanced of its kind in treating multiple types of pigment issues, including age spots, sunspots, melasma, tattoo removal, uneven skin tone and vascular lesions such as birthmarks. Plus, it can be used on all skin types and colors.
PicoFractional™ is an advanced photoacoustic fractional laser and skin treatment solution powered by the PiQo4 system. PicoFractional™ uses photoacoustic energy combined with high energy to reach deep into the skin and shatter several types of skin pigmentation, such as pigmented lesions, age spots, sun spots, acne scars and surgical scars, as well as treat facial lines and wrinkles. PicoFractional™ also stimulates new collagen, so that your skin looks healthier and rejuvenated. This procedure is safe with little to almost no downtime.
Benefits of Laser Treatments
Laser treatments offer men and women a non-invasive solution for many cosmetic concerns, some of which cannot be treated with surgery. Because incisions are not used for the procedures, patients have no downtime and significantly easier recoveries.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Laser Treatments?
Laser treatments are generally considered safe for all patients, but you may have some circumstances that make you a better candidate for another one of our MedSpa treatments. Some examples are:
- Having skin that is especially sensitive to the medications used during and after the treatment
- Being dark-skinned
- Feeling uncomfortable with the treatment and recovery process
- Not being able to take time away from work and other activities
What Do I Need to Do Before Having Laser Treatments?
All cosmetic procedures have risks, and you should have a clear understanding of your risks when choosing to have laser treatments. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Brothers to ensure that laser treatments are your best option.
What Should I Expect on the Day of My Laser Treatment?
All laser treatments are performed by our incredibly talented and highly trained aestheticians and laser specialists here at the Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta. The laser energy is administered in short bursts, and each burst feels like snapping your skin with a rubber band. We work in small sections of skin to completely treat the condition and achieve the desired results.
How Long Does It Take to Perform a Laser Treatment?
Laser treatments take less than one hour. The treatment time is based on the size of the area and nature of the problem that is being treated.
What to Expect After Laser Treatments
The following symptoms may occur after your laser treatment:
- Red skin
- Crusts and scabs
The symptoms may last seven to 10 days.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Laser Treatments?
You will not have scars as a result of your laser treatments.
When Will I See Results?
If you have bruising or swelling after the procedure, you may need to wait one to two weeks before seeing the initial results. Full results may take two to four weeks.
