Excellent Experience and Well Worth It - Atlanta, GA

Dr. Forney was friendly and thorough. I was pleased with how she answered my questions and took care of my concerns. I appreciated the time she spent with me and the experience she brings to the table was comforting. I would recommend her to others in my position.

Fraxel Not Worth the Money for Removing Age Spots

Overall I like my dermatologist but in this case she was too optimistic about the process and its anticipated results.

A PicoSure Experience: On the Cutting Edge - Part 3 by Rutledge Forney, MD

At 48 hours, we check in with our green lizard and Chinese character patients. Both tattoos have been kept moist and covered. Both tattoos exuded some pigment onto the dressings, bypassing the need for the body to slowly absorb and eliminate the extruded pigment. This “tissue effect” is why it takes so long to eliminate tattoo ink. Tattoo ink is inserted under the skin in large (to our skin) chunks. Our body tries to eliminate the ink, as it would eliminate...

A PicoSure Experience: On the Cutting Edge - Part 2 by Rutledge Forney, MD

We use cooled air on the tail as well as on the rest of the body. No difference in pain per patient…next time she won’t bother with gel. See the before, during and after photos below. Our black sun which has been treated five times with the NdYag is numbed with a shot of Novicaine as...

A PicoSure Experience: On the Cutting Edge by Rutledge Forney, MD

Our PicoSure machine arrived in the office early this week. It got jostled in transit so the installation took two days instead of one.

The engineer called it a “lab machine” -- fresh from the lab! Our PicoSure trainer is in the office today for...

In the past, the most common complaints about tattoo removal include: • IT HURTS! NOT PICOSURE All of our patients who have had tattoo removal treatments in the past say PicoSure is much less painful. One guy with black and green bands on his arm, which have been treated too...

Anti-Aging Tips and Advice

Anti-aging. What the heck does that mean? People ask me all the time what is the best anti-aging product. Usually that means “what can make me look better today.” I usually answer that reversing the clock can be done to a certain degree, but the most achievable anti-aging is stopping the clock or slowing it down. As with education, even if you dropped out of college, you can work still work hard and get your B.A. later in life. What Causes the...
