Everyone deserves to love the way they look, but conspicuous skin flaws can make it difficult to feel confident in your appearance. Trying to cover blemishes with make-up or clothing can be tedious and limit your ability to wear what you want. If you are ready to enjoy skin free from the burden of blemishes, we can help you get clearer, more beautiful skin with skin resurfacing. Led by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David B. Brothers, Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta offers skin resurfacing for men and women in Atlanta, Sandy Springs Brookhaven, Smyrna, Midtown, and Gainesville.
WHAT IS SKIN RESURFACING?
Skin resurfacing combines advanced energy applications with microneedling to achieve flawless, radiant skin.
Deka’s 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 DekaDot laser offers quick procedure times, benefiting the patient.
The DekaDot 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. Deka’s DOT system is the most advanced CO2 laser system available!
BENEFITS OF SKIN RESURFACING

WHO IS THE IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR SKIN RESURFACING?
The DekaDot laser can deliver a full range of ablative therapy and can be used for total skin resurfacing as well as the most delicate of skin treatments.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE HAVING SKIN RESURFACING?
Schedule a consultation with Dr. Brothers to learn about skin resurfacing. Every cosmetic procedure has risks and limitations. The appointments will help you know that DekaDot laser is the right treatment for your skin imperfections.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT ON THE DAY OF MY SKIN RESURFACING?
If the DekaDot laser is used to perform your skin treatment, the hand-held laser instrument will be passed over the treatment area, delivering super pulse technology to ablate skin layers. This creates thermal injury, which erases skin damage and allows regeneration.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO PERFORM SKIN RESURFACING?
The length of time for a skin resurfacing procedure depends on the size of the treatment area. The procedure can take less than 30 minutes for smaller areas or up to an hour for larger areas.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER SKIN RESURFACING
Following your DekaDot Laser skin resurfacing treatment, you can go right back to your day. Any mild redness you may notice after treatment should subside after a few hours. One of the great benefits to these procedures is the minimal downtime associated with treatment!
WILL I HAVE SCARS AFTER GETTING SKIN RESURFACING?
No, you will not have scars as a result of your skin resurfacing treatment.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
DekaDot Laser therapy can be used to treat a wide variety of skin issues. Results are apparent within 3 to 6 months of treatment, as redness resolves – for 4 to 6 weeks after treatment, you may notice a slight pinkness to your skin. Additional treatments may be recommended to produce desired results.
HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS OF SKIN RESURFACING LAST?
Skin resurfacing with the DekaDot laser can last several years, as long as you take good care of your skin and body. Protecting your skin from the sun and maintaining a healthy weight will help you maximize treatment results.
ADDITIONAL PROCEDURES TO ENHANCE YOUR SKIN RESURFACING RESULTS
Enhancing the contours of your face with dermal fillers can give you a dramatically improved appearance after your skin resurfacing.
