One of the most versatile and game-changing medical advancements of recent decades has been the laser. Since the first medical use of a laser in the 1960s, the technology has continued to improve and become more and more adaptable, and today, it allows us to treat a wide range of skin conditions and cosmetic concerns in a minimally-invasive way. But at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA), we recognize that the success of a laser treatment is dependent on both the quality of the equipment and the experience of the provider. That’s why we’re proud to be home to the largest and most experienced laser skin treatment center in the Southeast: The Laser Institute of Georgia.
What is The Laser Institute of Georgia?
At DAA, we believe in the power of specialty centers – a way to give our patients specialized care by providers experienced in a specific area, yet maintain the convenience of offering everything from Botox® to skin cancer removal surgery (and anything in between) under one roof. That’s why we have nine unique specialty centers, and The Laser Institute of Georgia is where all our cosmetic and medical laser treatments are performed. With over 25 years of laser experience, The Laser Institute of Georgia offers the specialized knowledge required for safe and successful laser procedures, and we’re consistently updating our collection of lasers with the latest advancements in technology.
What procedures are performed at The Laser Institute of Georgia?
We focus on skin care from head to toe, and that means we provide both aesthetic and medical treatments. At The Laser Institute of Georgia, some of the more common procedures include:

Keep in mind that although a laser treatment may be an option for your condition or concern, it might not be the ideal choice for your specific case, so schedule a consultation at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta with one of our board-certified providers to discuss your treatment options.
While laser treatments may be offered at a wide variety of facilities, spas, or even salons, remember that these are true medical procedures, and that your health shouldn’t be taken lightly. To get the best possible results AND the lowest risk of side effects, look for a facility like The Laser Institute of Georgia at DAA, who is affiliated with the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery and who employs only licensed and experienced board-certified dermatologists and medical professionals.
