Most unwanted skin spots, bumps, growths and warts (clinically known as benign lesions) are made up of cells. But they can be tricky to treat.
The CellFX procedure works by addressing the cause of most benign lesions – cells. The secret is its patented Nano-Pulse Stimulation™ (NPS™) technology. This unique technology of ultrafast energy pulses reaches these skin lesions no matter how deep they go in the treatment area. Because NPS technology only affects cells, it clears the lesion while sparing the surrounding non-cellular collagen foundation of your skin. The non-thermal CellFX procedure reduces risk of scarring and helps promote natural, gradual healing that leads to healthy, renewed skin.
Dermatology Consultants now offers this procedure at both the Atlanta and Covington offices.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the CellFX procedure take?
Your doctor will schedule the total appointment time required for your visit. The actual time for the CellFX procedure session is typically 15 minutes or less, depending on the number of lesions to clear. Preparation of your skin typically takes a few minutes and each lesion usually requires only 10–15 seconds of pulsing.
Can multiple lesions be treated in one procedure?
Yes, multiple lesions and lesion types may be treated in one procedure session. Each lesion can be treated in a matter of seconds, so it’s practical to treat multiple lesions in a single 15-minute procedure. Your doctor will design a treatment plan that works for you.
How soon can I return to normal activity?
Generally, most patients can immediately return to normal activity. Your doctor may recommend wearing a small bandage and/or ointment to protect the area during the initial healing process.
How many visits are needed?
Most lesions can successfully clear with a single procedure session. Your doctor may provide guidance on the number of procedure sessions you may likely need for optimal results. For instance, for more difficult-to-treat lesions, your physician may recommend a second procedure session.
As the healing period progresses, if you believe that the lesion(s) or portion of the lesion(s) remain(s), contact your physician for follow-up.
When will I see results?
Lesions typically clear within 30–60 days. As the lesion clears and new cells regenerate to form a new skin layer, the gradual return to normal skin appearance can take between 60–90 days.
Your doctor will advise what the normal healing time would be for the particular lesion type and your skin type. Larger or deeper lesions may require longer periods of time to complete the clearance and healing process.
