Laser Treatments in Central Georgia | Peachstate Aesthetics

Laser treatments harness the power of light to create brilliant, non-surgical body and facial rejuvenation results. With IPL treatments, you can effectively treat unwanted facial or body hair, remove tattoos, and treat hyperpigmentation or vascular lesions. IPL treatments penetrate deeply to erase the melanin in the hair follicles or pigmentation without the need for incisions or harsh topical chemicals. 

At Peachstate Aesthetics, we use the Spectrum Laser by Rohrer Aesthetics when conducting our laser skin treatments. This portable device is unique because of its combination of 4 lasers and Intense Pulsed Light therapy (IPL). Known to be safe and effective, IPL treatments can transform your skin and renew your confidence.

What Is IPL?

IPL is a treatment that utilizes intense pulsed light to address a variety of cosmetic and dermatologic concerns. The advanced treatments of IPL can permanently remove hair, tattoos, hyperpigmentation, and vascular lesions using light waves that absorb into pigments and the deeper layers of skin where collagen is produced. It represents one of the most significant advances in the field of skin rejuvenation. Learn more about IPL

Am I a Good Candidate for Spectrum Laser Treatments?

Nearly everyone is a good candidate for Spectrum laser treatments. Your physician at Peachstate Aesthetics will determine whether you’re a good candidate by doing a close evaluation of your skin type and tone. 

We want our patients to receive the best results from their chosen service, so we take exceptional thought and care into determining which solutions are the safest and most effective for their individual needs. While Spectrum treatments are safe when performed by trained, licensed professionals, this procedure is not deemed suitable for patients who: 

What Can Spectrum Laser Treat?

Spectrum by Rohrer Aesthetics includes 4 types of lasers plus the non-ablative benefits of IPL. It can be customized to address many common skin concerns, including:

Hyperpigmentation isn’t necessarily a skin condition, but a term for skin that appears darker. There are several different types of hyperpigmentation, including melasma, sunspots, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The most common cause of hyperpigmentation is an excess production of melanin—the pigment that gives the skin its color. Spectrum is an excellent choice for diffusing hyperpigmentation as well as localized vascular pigmented lesions. The light from the device targets the treatment area where melanin is concentrated, resulting in too much pigment. Spots and discoloration are broken apart by the light energy and fade over time.

Broken capillaries look like red spidery veins beneath the skin. They are actually tiny blood vessels that have ruptured and become visible through the skin in red streaks or blotches. There are several things that can cause broken capillaries, including injury to the skin, genetics, aging, environmental factors, and hormonal changes. The light energy from Spectrum is absorbed into these concentrated areas of melanin and hemoglobin. Once broken apart, the concentrated hemoglobin can be processed and flushed from the body, leaving your skin with an even tone.

Tattoos only increase in popularity with each passing year. People enjoy carrying artwork on their bodies that may represent themselves. Unfortunately, not all tattoos end up the way we want them to or perhaps you’ve outgrown the tattoo you received years ago. The Spectrum device features a Q-switch laser that is efficient at targeting the ink used in tattoos. Most pigments, newer or older, can be broken down gradually by the thermal energy within the Q-switch technology, resulting in clear, ink-free skin.

Unwanted hair can be a problem of the past after Spectrum laser treatment. To eliminate unwanted hair in large or small areas, the Spectrum device is adjusted to the 810 nm diode laser mode. Hair starts thinning and brushes off after just one session. For long-term hair reduction, patients need to complete a series of five to ten treatments scheduled several weeks apart. The intervals of laser hair removal address several stages of hair growth and continuously disables the follicles from future hair growth.

Erbium Yag laser treatments are known for optimal skin rejuvenation results. As we age and lose collagen, we notice the signs of sun damage and pigment changes caused by hormones and other factors. Laser resurfacing is commonly used to refresh skin tone and soften texture on the face, neck, hands, and chest—areas where sun damage is most prevalent.

Are Treatments with the Spectrum Laser Painful?

Most patients tolerate the treatments very well. The intense wavelengths of light are delivered in ultra-fast pulses. As the thermal energy comes into contact with its target and the light is absorbed, a snapping sensation will occur. As treatment progresses, it is possible for the skin to feel warm, but not painfully hot. Patients describe the treatments as mildly uncomfortable at certain points especially during tattoo removals.
