"We have made it our goal to stay up-to-date with the latest and most effective minimally-invasive cosmetic treatments.”
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) November 17, 2015
Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA) has become a leader in offering the newest innovations in both medical and cosmetic dermatology throughout their nearly 40 years of serving the Atlanta area. DAA is now proud to offer patients the latest technology in non-surgical treatments available for fat reduction and for rejuvenation of the face and hands.
In 2014, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reported an increase in non-surgical cosmetic procedures of more than 500% since 1997. According to Dr. D. Scott Karempelis, a board-certified dermatologist at DAA, “Because of this, we have made it our goal to stay up-to-date with the latest and most effective minimally-invasive cosmetic treatments.”
Kybella™ Fat Reduction for the “Double Chin”
Kybella™ is an injectable solution designed specifically to reduce fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness or a “double chin.” DAA’s founder Dr. Edmond I. Griffin was one of the first Atlanta physicians to be trained and qualified to administer Kybella™, and as he explains, “Excess fat under the chin can affect patients for a variety of reasons and can be difficult to resolve with diet and exercise. In the past, liposuction was the only way to remove fat from this targeted area, but Kybella™ has been a valuable addition to our cosmetic services by offering a non-surgical, minimally invasive solution to this common concern.” Less invasive treatments like Kybella™ make aesthetic improvements more accessible to a large number of Americans.
New Dermal Fillers: Radiesse® for Hands and Restylane® Lyft for Cheeks
Facial fillers have become one of the most popular treatments for facial rejuvenation, largely because the procedure is quick, effective, and requires no downtime. However, two recent advancements have expanded the uses for these versatile injections. Radiesse® has been used to fill out facial wrinkles since 2006, but it was recently FDA-approved to replace lost volume in the hands, minimizing the visibility of veins and tendons and giving the hands a younger appearance. According to DAA’s board-certified dermatologist Dr. Joseph Payne, “Hand rejuvenation with Radiesse® is a breakthrough because our hands age more quickly and are more visible than nearly any other area of the body, so while patients have had minimally invasive treatments to replace facial volume for years, having this option for hands will be a game-changer.” Restylane® Lyft, formerly called Perlane®-L, has also recently received an expanded FDA approval, in this case, for cheek augmentation and to improve the appearance of mid-face wrinkles.
FOCUS Lens Array for PicoSure™
While the PicoSure™ laser has proven to be highly effective for tattoo removal, a new lens array will expand its abilities into the area of facial rejuvenation. By adjusting and magnifying the light beams of the PicoSure™ laser, the FOCUS Lens Array reduces common facial cosmetic concerns including wrinkles, acne scars, and age spots or other pigmented lesions.
CoolSculpting® Fat Reduction for the “Double Chin”
Unwanted fat is extremely common for patients at DAA, and it can be particularly frustrating for patients who maintain a healthy lifestyle and have specific pockets of localized excess fat. CoolSculpting® has quickly become a popular procedure that uses controlled cooling to target and reduce fat cells. As the first practice in Atlanta to offer CoolSculpting® and one of the few offices with the ability to treat three areas at once with TriSculpting, DAA has seen great success with their CoolSculpting® patients and has recently added a new applicator that allows the innovative CoolSculpting® method to reduce fat under the chin. This particularly stubborn area of fat can now be addressed with the minimal discomfort and downtime that CoolSculpting® patients have previously enjoyed for treatment of the abdomen and thighs.
DAA offers both expert dermatological care and effective cosmetic treatments at their 5555 Peachtree Dunwoody Road NE, Suite 190, Medical Quarters office. To learn more about their latest additions and other procedures, call (404) 256-4457 to schedule a consultation.
