laser institute of georgia
With over 25 years of laser experience, the providers of the Laser Institute of Georgia offer Dermatology Associates of Atlanta patients the most advanced laser systems for their skincare needs. Laser tattoo removal is a procedure that many people often seek when they no longer want a tattoo on their body.
No matter the reason for wanting to remove a tattoo, our experienced providers are skilled in removing tattoo pigments of all colors. Dermatology Associates is now offering the latest FDA- approved laser, PicoSure™ which can remove difficult tattoos such as blue and green pigments as well as benign pigmented lesions. Through PressureWave™ technology, the targeted ink is shattered into tiny particles. With shorter bursts of energy compared to the current nanosecond lasers, deep and/or dark tattoos can now be removed in fewer treatments. Patients benefit from this laser with better removal results in fewer treatments without the risk of injury to surrounding skin.
During a skin analysis, our providers will be able to estimate how many treatments will be needed for full removal depending on the size, color, age of the tattoo, skin type and amount of ink originally used. In general, homemade tattoos are much easier to treat than professional ones. As with all laser procedures there is a risk of scarring. However, our precise laser technology and extensive experience dramatically reduces the risk of side effects.
For more information about PicoSure™ or other laser services we offer, please contact our office today. Be sure to connect with Dermatology Associates of Atlanta on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ for the latest dermatology news and events in Atlanta.

How does laser hair removal work?
Using an intense pulsating beam of light that targets the pigment in the hair, treatment is applied to the desired area and passes through the skin to individual hair follicles. The heat from the laser light damages the follicle, preventing future hair growth in the treatment area.
Who is the best candidate for laser hair removal?
Just as sunlight is attracted toward darker colors over lighter colors, laser hair removal works best on individuals with darker hair and lighter skin tone. The contrast between the two allows for better targeting of the laser and better absorption by the hair follicle. Those with very light blonde or grey hair may benefit more from electrolysis treatments as the hair doesn’t have enough pigment for laser light to attract to. With over 20 years of experience and multiple lasers and hair removal options, Dermatology Associates of Atlanta’s providers can help you find a hair removal treatment that works with your skin tone and hair color.
Where can laser hair removal be performed?
Laser hair removal can be performed anywhere there is unwanted hair. Our patients have undergone laser hair removal on areas including the arms, legs, chest, face, bikini area, back, underarms, and more.
I’ve heard laser hair removal hurts. How painful is it?
Comfort thresholds vary from person to person, and the sensation may vary based on the treatment area and laser used. Some compare the sensation of laser hair removal to that of a rubber band being snapped across the skin. Our providers work to ensure that you remain as comfortable as possible throughout the entirety of the procedure.
Why do I need more than one laser hair removal treatment?
Because of the nature of hair growth cycle that includes growing and resting periods, laser hair removal is only effective when hair is in the growth phase. Multiple treatments are required in order to treat the hair that is in a different phase of the hair cycle during other treatments. By spreading out a series of 6 to 8 treatments over 8 to 12 weeks, patients can be sure to receive the smoothest results.
Is laser hair removal safe?
Laser hair removal is safe and effective for those who have passed through the screening process with Dermatology Associates of Atlanta’s trained and experienced providers. We offer multiple types of lasers and even EpiLight and electrolysis hair removal to ensure the safety of all patients. While there are rare risks like hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation, we work diligently to make certain that your treatment results exceed your expectations.
