Dr. Taerri is one of the recognized experts in Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing drawing patients all over Georgia, having had extensive clinical experience in treating virtually all skin types and various indications such as acne scarring, rejuvenation, and chemoprevention of skin cancer. He utilizes a approach in customizing detailed pre-op and post-op care regimen to optimize the efficacy and tolerability of Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing.
The old CO2 Laser Resurfacing had been the gold standard in skin resurfacing for the past couple decades as it achieved unparallel smoothness and reduction of wrinkle that no other modality can match. However, it has fallen out of favor because of significant pain requiring general anesthesia and substantial down time with the complexion appearing bloody raw for at least couple weeks.
The FRACTIONAL technology delivers the CO2 laser energy in a pixel like fashion where microscopic holes are created into the skin via computer-generated pattern. This fractionated CO2 laser technology delivers microscopic columns of CO2 laser energy across the skin barrier, penetrating 10 to 20% of skin surface area right next to each other ( The other 80 to 90% of non-ablated skin surface areas facilitate faster healing).This energy mushrums in the papilary dermis where the collogen-producing cell are located causing continual collogen production for several months. Profractional( Sciton) and Fraxel have a skin scaner that is essential for proper energy delivering. A recent study confirmed that the fractional CO2 deep dermal ablation resulted in collagen remodeling for at least several months after treatment determined by immunohistochemical analysis of heat shock proteins.
Acne and Acne Scars
Acne is one of the most common diseases of the skin. The skin on the face, upper body and neck is most commonly affected. Increased sebum and perspiration block the pores and this becomes an ideal environment for bacteria on the skin, leading to infection.
The visible consequences are red, blistering spots of acne known as pustules or papules. The main long term hazard is the acne scarring which forms during the healing process of the acne lesions.
Based on type and severity of your acne we may choose one or a few treatments that are appropriate for your condition.IPL system has a high intensity blue-light that to kill the bacteria that causes acne. PL blue-light and red light are painless, effective and safe device.It requires several treatments once or twice per week to kill the bacterias. we also use other modalities like Light PhotoDynamic Therapy, collagen injection, chemical peels and Etc to optimize the result
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment supported with microdermabrasion and peels can all help to reduce pigmentation, age spots, freckles and birthmarks.
What are some skin pigmentation lesions?
Brown spots, liver spots, age spots, sun spots, sunburn freckles, lentigos, or senile/solar lentigines are associated with premature aging and exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun.
These marks range in color from light brown to red or black and are located in areas most often exposed to the sun, particularly the hands, face, shoulders, arms, and forehead, and the head if bald. Most are harmless, but all are ageing and may be unattractive.
Café au lait and other pigmented birthmarks are localized areas of increased pigmentation in the skin, which are present at birth.
How Skin Pigmentation is treated by IPL?
IPL is the most recently developed treatment available for removing pigmentation marks. The IPL removes the areas of excessive pigmentation leaving the texture and color of the skin natural and unchanged
Most brown birthmarks will fade with treatment but some reoccur. Brown age spots may fade or disappear with a single treatment.
This treatment will not prevent the development of new separate areas of pigmentation. Regular and careful use of sunscreen is essential if new areas are to be prevented. We recommend daily usage of a SPF30 facial cream.
What is fractional resurfacing?
It is the the new gold standard in skin resurfacing that is safe for most skin types delivering dramatic ablative clinical results with minimal discomfort: It has typically 2-4 days downtime.Simply outperforms any non-CO2 based laser and device for skin rejuvenation that reverse 5- 10 years of skin aging, acne scar, scars, freckles, melasma ,wrinkles and etc.
What is MicroLaserPeel?
The MicroLaser Peel is a state of art Laser peel that precisely melts away the outermost layers of the skin. The MicroLaserPeel procedure is customized for each individual according to the skin problem. Skin conditions such as wrinkles, scars, keratoses, or pigmentation problems have been successfully treated with a MicroLaser Peel procedure. The MicroLaser Peel was designed for those people looking for more than microdermabrasion or chemical peel procedure who do not have time for a prolonged healing process. This “weekend” skin peel treats the skin conditions associated with aging. You can see real improvements in your skin within a few days. The combination of MicroLaser Peel and Fractional resurfacing will provide solutions for eliminating more superficial skin lesion and provide the benefit of long term deep skin collagen stimulation by fractional laser ,creating more youthful, tighter, and smoother skin.
How does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Lasers are the safe, efficient and quick option for people desiring hair removal. Lasers light sources gently remove unwanted hair based on the principle of selective photothermolysis. This refers to the process whereby light energy causes thermal injury to the hair follicle. This energy absorbed in the shaft causes the temperature to reach a sufficiently high level in the hair follicle so that the targeted hair structures are destroyed and regrowth is inhibited. The darker the hair, and the greater the contrast between skin and hair, the easier it is to get good results from laser hair removal. Destroying the hair follicle during its active growth cycle is another key to producing long-term hair reduction. Consequently, multiple treatments scheduled several weeks or months apart are typically required to achieve optimal results.
