5 out of 5 stars Skin Rejuvenation
I've been a patient of Dr. Forney's for several years and feel she is the best derm in Atlanta as she is equally (and highly) skilled in both medical and cosmetic dermatology. She carries top of the line products and staffs the most skilled RN/aesthetic/laser team to ensure her patients get the best and most well-rounded experience at her practice. I'm 31 and Dr. F created an anti-aging...

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.
I have been an employee with Dr. Forney for 9 years and I have always wanted to remove a tattoo that I got over 15 years ago. I did not like it anymore and wanted it gone quickly, but never treated it until now because the old laser we had in our office to remove tattoo's was painful and took a ton of treatments to remove a tattoo. I kept putting it off for years until Dr. Forney purchased the...

Doctor Forney was excellent
2 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser
Overall I like my dermatologist but in this case she was too optimistic about the process and its anticipated results.

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...
As we continue our training day, the green and blue lizard is next. The tail has not been numbed but the rest of the lizard has been coated in numbing gel for over 30 minutes. 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...
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 technician and engineer (the machine is so cutting edge that they sent the chief engineer to make sure it is installed correctly) cautioned us to be extremely careful with it since the optics in the arm are so complex. The engineer called it a “lab machine” -- fresh from the lab! Our PicoSure trainer is in the office today for...
PicoSure is here and our first five patients have been treated!!! All five can tell that this is a much better way to treat their tattoos, and it has only been four days since the first treatment. 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. 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...
