Atlanta, GA (Vocus) May 11, 2010
Kalos: The Atlanta Center for Facial Plastic, Reconstructive, & Laser Surgery and Benjamin C. Stong MD are proud to announce the introduction of the newest technology in laser skin rejuvenation resurfacing, the Pearl Fractional and Pearl Fusion TM procedures, to the greater Atlanta Metropolitan area. Today, the primary lasers used in laser skin rejuvenation resurfacing are Erbium, CO2, and YSGG. YSGG is the newest wavelength in laser technology and offers the most advanced technology on the market to perform the Pearl Fractional and Pearl Fusion procedures. The YSGG wavelength combines the benefits while eliminating the problems of erbium and CO2 lasers by offering a laser that achieves excellent results and minimizes heat damage to surrounding tissue, and the risk of permanent scarring and hypopigmentation. Also, the Pearl Fractional and Pearl Fusion procedures have more rapid healing times than traditional laser procedures resulting in less downtime, allowing patients to return to their daily activities faster.
The state of the art in laser skin rejuvenation/resurfacing technology includes combining confluent and fractionated procedures to safely treat the superficial and deep layers of the skin. On the cutera system the Pearl and Pearl fractional procedures are combined to perform the Pearl Fusion procedure, the most contemporary laser skin rejuvenation treatment available today.
Kalos: The Atlanta Center for Facial Plastic, Reconstructive & Laser Surgery is the first practice to offer the Pearl Fractional and Pearl Fusion procedures in the Atlanta metropolitan area, as well as the entire state of Georgia, and is one of the few practices to offer it within the region. It is used to treat both superficial and deep wrinkles and skin blemishes as well as acne scarring. The Pearl Fractional and Pearl Fusion procedures may be used with facelift surgery to improve skin quality and texture, further turning back the hands of time. Often times, the quality of skin is ignored when patients undergo surgical procedures, but is often the icing on the cake to surgical procedures.
When considering laser skin resurfacing it is important to consult with a practitioner that is knowledgeable about the different technologies on the market and makes thoughtful recommendations based on patient goals to achieve excellent outcomes. When choosing a Facial Plastic Surgeon one must choose a surgeon who understands that restoring youthful skin is as important to recapturing youth as choosing a skilled facelift surgeon. The Pearl Fractional and Pearl Fusion procedures offer superior results with less downtime than the other lasers on the market and should be considered by anyone about to undergo surgical procedures such as a facelift, browlift, midface lift, blepharoplasty, or anyone with significant sun damage and aging skin.
