danna-headshotAt Dermatology Associates of Atlanta, we are all about exceptional skin care from head to toe. Welcome back to the newest entry in our monthly Provider of the Month blog series. This is where we highlight one of our incredible dermatology providers and allow them to offer a few personal skin care recommendations of their own. This month, we’re focusing on Danna Dennis Calder and her nearly 25 years of experience as a physician assistant. A member of the Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants among other industry leading organizations, Danna has extensive experience diagnosing and treating a wide variety of skin conditions including acne, eczema, and psoriasis just to mention a few. But did you know that Danna also helps patients with many of our cosmetic dermatology treatments? Below, hear Danna recommend a few of her favorites in her own words.

Why Danna Recommends Cartessa™ Tetra Cool CO2 Laser:

“When considering new cosmetic treatments, versatility is something that is very important to me. And I’ve had terrific success using the Cartessa™ Tetra Cool CO2 Laser to treat a wide range of skin concerns for my patients. This unique laser technology is able to help patients with facial aging like wrinkles and lines, as well as other issues like moles, sun damage, and acne scarring, with very little downtime.”

Why Danna Recommends Sclerotherapy Treatments for Spider Veins:

“The appearance of spider veins, especially on the legs, can be a persistent and frustrating aesthetic concern to deal with. I perform sclerotherapy as a treatment option for spider veins and have seen outstanding results over the years. The treatment works by injecting a solution, (known as a sclerosing agent) directly into the vein. Once injected, the solution will cause the vein walls to swell, stick together and effectively seal, which safely stops the flow of blood in these veins and allows their appearance to fade in the days and weeks following treatment. The treatment is very safe and highly effective”

Why Danna Recommends Cosmetic Injectable Treatments:

“Facial aging is always a top concern among patients of all ages. And now, more younger patients than ever before have begun to show an interest in cosmetic injectable treatments to help fight off wrinkles, lines, and lost volume in the face before they even occur. Regardless of whether you’re trying to rejuvenate the upper or lower portion of the face, Botox®, Dysport®, or facial filler injections can be incredibly helpful.
