Atlanta Plastic Surgeon Introduces Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing to Further Results of Facial Plastic Surgery

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - Mar 6, 2012) - Dr. John LeRoy, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Atlanta and innovator of the Band Aid Facelift, adds laser skin resurfacing to his selection of Band Aid procedures to offer facial rejuvenation with minimal recovery to patients who have previously undergone surgery, or are not yet ready for traditional plastic surgery.

Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing utilizes DOT laser therapy to emit tiny columns of laser light that perforate the sagging dermal tissue of the treatment area. The treatment is designed to induce the body's healing response and stimulate collagen production within the skin for a tighter, more youthful appearance with minimal downtime. Like LeRoy's other Band Aid procedures, Band Aid Laser Resurfacing is performed in-office with gentle numbing.

Dr. LeRoy created his original Band Aid Facelift in 1997 at his Atlanta plastic surgery practice upon request from his patients who were searching for fewer wrinkles and tighter skin, but were not yet candidates for a traditional facelift plastic surgery. Since then, Dr. LeRoy has developed other Band Aid procedures like Band Aid Tummy Tuck, Band Aid Blepharoplasty, and Band Aid Liposuction to address isolated cosmetic issues of the face and body.

Dr. LeRoy states, "Band Aid Laser Treatment is ideal for those patients who've had previous facial plastic surgery and want to rejuvenate their results. It's a flexible procedure that not only improves skin tightness, but also helps reduce the appearance of those issues that continue to present themselves with age, including sun spots, acne scars, and surface imperfections."

The adjustable settings of the Band Aid Laser make the treatment safe and effective for patients of all ages while addressing each patient's individual areas of concern. For patients whose signs of aging necessitate a more comprehensive procedure, Dr. LeRoy says full versions of facial plastic surgery procedures, including Atlanta facelift and eyelid surgery, can also help patients rejuvenate their appearance in combination with Band Aid Laser treatment.

Dr. LeRoy stresses the importance of consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss individual needs before undergoing any procedure to ensure the treatment fits the patient's specific cosmetic concern. Dr. LeRoy is excited about the Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing and the DOT laser because of the long-term effects and ability to erase existing skin surface damage and simultaneously renew the underlying layers of tissue and collagen and improve skin health continually after treatment.
