At Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA), we strive to give our patients comprehensive and individualized care, and as part of this mission, we’re continually growing our menu of services so that we can match each patient with the best treatment option for them. Our latest additions focus on cosmetic dermatology and allowing our patients to look and feel their best.
Kybella™ Fat Reduction for the Chin
We encourage every patient to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen, but one area of the body that’s particularly stubborn is the chin. Excess fat can develop as the result of genetics, aging, and weight fluctuations, but until Kybella™, the only way to target these fat cells was with surgical liposuction. Kybella™ is an injection that breaks down the fat cells in the chin so that they can no longer store fat. Each session consists of a series of injections into the targeted area. While patients can require up to six treatments, the slimmer and more youthful results are expected to be long-lasting.
One of the most popular aesthetic procedures we perform is facial rejuvenation with dermal fillers. Also known as facial fillers, these injections smooth wrinkles by replacing facial volume that has been lost with age. While most dermal fillers are best used around the mouth and nose area, Restylane® Lyft is unique because it’s also FDA-approved to add volume to the cheeks, giving the face a lifted, rejuvenated, and natural look. Restylane® Lyft also includes lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to maximize patient comfort while creating results that can last up to a year. Treatments are brief, minimally invasive, and require little or no downtime.
Radiesse® for Hands
Like Restylane® Lyft, Radiesse® is a dermal filler that adds youthful volume. However, Radiesse® is unique because not only does it stimulate the body’s natural ability to produce collagen (the protein that gives young skins its firmness and elasticity), but it’s now the first and only FDA-approved product for hand rejuvenation. The hands age more quickly than nearly any other area of the body because they tend to sustain a lot of sun exposure. The skin on the back of the hands is also particularly thin, so when aging causes it to lose volume, wrinkles and sagging skin form rather quickly. Radiesse® injections are a minimally invasive way to restore youth to the hands, and results can last up to a year before retreatment is needed.
FOCUS™ Lens Array for PicoSure®
The PicoSure® laser is known for its ability to remove even stubborn tattoos. The new FOCUS™ Lens Array now extends PicoSure®’s abilities into the facial rejuvenation realm as well. The lens array causes the laser light to focus on treating the deeper layers of the skin in order to rebuild collagen and to give the skin a youthful glow. The treatment sessions can effectively minimize fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and pigmented skin spots throughout several areas of the face, as well as the hands and the arms for some patients. The non-surgical nature of the treatment allows patients to avoid a lengthy recovery period, and some patients can achieve their optimal results with just one session.
Galderma ASPIRE Rewards
Galderma is the manufacturer of several of our most popular cosmetic facial injections, including Dysport®, Restylane®, Restylane Lyft®, and Sculptra® Aesthetic.
