Laser and IPL Treatment

Dermatologic Surgery Specialists offer the most experienced aesthetic laser and IPL treatments in Macon, as well as Central and South Georgia. Under the supervision of Dr. David Kent, our physicians and laser technicians offer a large menu of laser services to maintain, enhance and restore a youthful, fresh appearance to your skin. We have over 35 years of experience of when and when not to use lasers to improve ones’ skin issues.

Understanding how lasers and IPL work is very straight forward. A laser generates a high-intensity beam of light that has many applications in medicine. The light produced by the laser has a single wavelength, similar to changing one pure color from a rainbow. Depending on the color chosen, the laser energy is only absorbed by certain tissues. For example, a laser beam can pass safely through the surface of the skin but will destroy blood vessels or the pigment in a hair follicle that lies below the skins surface. An Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) device is different from a laser in that the IPL devices emit many wavelengths of light.

What does a laser or IPL treatment feel like? Most patients admit to feeling a faint stinging momentarily. Some procedures such as fractional resurfacing recommend the patient uses a numbing cream.

I cannot even begin to describe how much difference the laser treatments have made to my face. I honestly didn’t think I had so many issues with my skin, but that laser does amazing things. Jill and Jodi have been wonderful and they really know what they are doing... These treatments have totally changed the way I look and feel. For the first time in my life, most of my freckles are gone from my face and my face is presentable without makeup. You are the best and I truly appreciate you thinking about me.
