How Do Our Treatments Repair Your Skin?

Cobb Dermatology & Aesthetics offers different laser skin treatments based on your skincare needs:

  • Erbium resurfacing laser – This cutting-edge laser technique directs targeted, concentrated beams of light at the outer layer of skin to remove dead skin cells while simultaneously heating the dermis, or the underlying layer, to stimulate collagen production. As new collagen fibers and skin cells are formed during the healing process, the skin takes on a tighter, firmer and more even appearance with fewer lines and brown spots.
  • Intense pulsed light (IPL) – For patients with rosacea, hyperpigmentation and dark spots due to sun damage and aging, IPL treatments can improve your skin tone and reduce redness. During your procedure, light energy is delivered into the deeper layers of the skin to reactivate blood flow and kickstart the body’s collagen production. In addition, the IPL laser dark spot treatment breaks down excess melanin into small particles that rise to the surface of the skin where they are naturally shed.

Why IPL and Laser Skin Treatments Are Right for You

  • Treats a variety of conditions, including wrinkles, sun damage, and acne scarring
  • Subtle results after a few days, dramatic results after a few weeks
  • Non-invasive
  • Dark spots fade within days
  • Minimal pain and downtime

IPL and Laser Skin Treatment FAQs

Is laser skin resurfacing painful?

Most laser treatment patients can easily tolerate their procedure, with many comparing it to small skin pinches. To minimize your pain, your provider will numb your skin with a topical medication before your treatment begins. You may notice redness, swelling and discomfort following your procedure, but your recovery time is minimal.

How long until I see results from my laser skin therapy?

Once your skin begins to heal from the procedure, you should see visible improvements to your skin’s tone and texture in just a few days. Over the next few weeks as collagen production continues to ramp up, you’ll notice your fine lines, acne scars and dark spots are less evident.

How many skin resurfacing or IPL treatments do I need?

In many cases, erbium resurfacing can produce noticeable results with just one treatment, but does involve a few days of downtime after the procedure.

IPL treatments, which have virtually no downtime and can be done over a lunch break, are typically done in a series, once a month for four months, to achieve the best results.
It is always best to come in for a consultation so that the provider can come up with a personalized treatment plan.
