MARIETTA, GA--(Marketwire - Feb 20, 2013) - Dr. Thomas Lintner, an Atlanta plastic surgeon, prefers to educate his patients on the variety of procedures available to them. He works with his patients to create customized treatment plans designed to satisfy their cosmetic goals while employing the least invasive procedures possible. Dr. Lintner is a firm believer in honesty and says educating patients on all their options will ultimately yield the most effective results.
Many patients visit Dr. Lintner requesting microdermabrasion or a chemical peel. However, depending on the specific skin concerns of the patient, intense pulse light laser treatments may be a better option to deliver their desired cosmetic outcome. Intense pulse light laser therapy utilizes high-intensity pulses of light to resurface the skin. These treatments are sometimes referred to as laser skin resurfacing, though no actual lasers are used in the process.
According to Dr. Lintner, intense pulse light laser therapy is a light skin rejuvenation treatment that can quickly and easily repair:
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Broken or unsightly blood vessels
These treatments may be performed on both the face and body, are non-surgical, and produce little discomfort or downtime for the patient.
Many of Dr. Lintner's Atlanta plastic surgery patients visit his practice with concerns of pigmented and vascular lesions -- especially sun spots, age spots, rosacea, spider veins, and capillaries. These skin conditions develop with prolonged exposure to the sun and also occur naturally with age. Intense pulse light laser therapy targets and destroys the vessels and pigmentation responsible for these lesions, leaving patients with clearer, younger looking skin.
"It's great to be able to offer our clients a practical and highly effective treatment for uneven pigment and the appearance of vessels that's quick, non-surgical, and requires little to no downtime," says Sandra Butler, a Laser Specialist affiliated with Advanced Aesthetic Surgery.
Dr. Lintner highlights that light laser therapy is FDA-cleared, so patients can take comfort in knowing they are receiving a well-tested treatment option for their cosmetic skin concerns. Typically, Dr. Lintner's patients notice their skin appears clearer and younger after just one treatment. Patients interested in laser skin resurfacing can combine intense pulse light laser therapy treatments with facelift or eyelid surgery procedures to produce even more dramatic results.
