Who doesn’t wish they could just make unwanted fat vanish from one “problem area” or another? At Dermatology Associates of Atlanta, we’re big proponents of diet and exercise as the best way to reach and maintain a healthy weight. The problem, though, is that you can’t choose where your body loses fat from, so you can be perfectly healthy and fit while still having stubborn pockets of fat dragging your self-confidence down. If you’re happy with your weight but you’re not so crazy about your shape, modern medicine has plenty of help to offer.
At DAA, we offer four different options for body contouring, ranging from an enhanced version of traditional liposuction to entirely non-invasive procedures (meaning there are no incisions or injections). To help you compare, below is an overview of the fat reduction treatments we offer: BodyFX™, CoolSculpting®, UltraShape®, and liposuction with SlimLipo™.
For some patients, the most difficult part of becoming confident in their appearance is figuring out which treatment option is best for them. But rest assured, you don’t need to make the decision on your own. Get started with a fat reduction consultation at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta, which one of our licensed and experienced providers can explain your options and recommend the procedure that is best suited to your goals. If you’re looking for more answers about the many general and cosmetic dermatology services we offer, from detecting and treating skin cancer to Botox® injections, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
It’s easy to feel optimistic during the spring, with brighter weather, more daylight, and temperatures that let you enjoy the outdoors. But for many of our patients at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA), the icing on the cake is being able to enjoy the season feeling confident with healthy, attractive skin. If you’re not quite there yet, we’re offering a variety of special events and discounts this month to help.
Cosmetic Day + Glo Minerals Makeup Event: April 13th, 2016
Our monthly Cosmetic Days are always a patient favorite, because they’re the perfect opportunity to refresh your cosmetic facial injections. Whether you’re a fan of Botox® or Dysport® for your forehead creases or crow’s feet, or you’re loyal to your facial fillers to reduce smile lines and other wrinkles around your mouth, or you take advantage of both, Cosmetic Day provides great one-day-only special pricing in most facial injectables. The pot is even sweeter this month, because a Glo Minerals makeup artist is offering personal consultations to help you optimize your look.
CoolSculpting® Fat Reduction Lunch & Learn: April 29th, 2016
No matter how many crunches you do, you may still have an unwanted area of extra fat here or there, and exercise doesn’t let you choose where fat stays or goes. CoolSculpting® is an entirely non-surgical way to target specific areas of unwanted fat using controlled cooling, and it’s available for many areas of your body, including the abdomen, thighs, flanks, and now the “double chin.” Our lunch & learn is an opportunity to have all your CoolSculpting® fat reduction questions answered, get a personal consultation, meet with the manufacturer, and even save some cash while you’re at it.
Achieving and maintaining great skin doesn’t end when you walk out our doors. Using the right products at home can make all the difference in how youthful and radiant your skin looks, and this month, you can save on some of our top-recommended products. Revision®’s neck lift package offers a comprehensive system for staving off wrinkles, while Skin Medica®’s HA5 provides powerful hydration, and the Baby Foot™ at-home chemical peel gives your feet a softer, smoother surface. Just remember to communicate with your dermatologist about any changes you’re concerned about in your skin when you’re trying a new product.
Facial filler injections (like Restylane® and Juvéderm®) are a staple which help many of our patients quickly keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay. The latest in Restylane®’s line of injectables, known as Restylane® Lyft, addresses another common complaint about aging: the loss of volume in the cheeks. This new filler is designed to restore a more shapely and youthful appearance to your facial contours.
Whether your cosmetic priorities include a slimmer physique, fewer wrinkles, or healthier-looking feet, we look forward to giving you a hand so you can start truly enjoying the season. To get started, schedule a consultation with us or follow DAA on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
ABOUT DERMATOLOGY ASSOCIATES OF ATLANTA
Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA) is an all-encompassing dermatological practice founded in 1976 by Dr. Edmond I. Griffin. Joined by partners Dr. D. Scott Karempelis and Dr. Joseph R. Payne and an exceptional team of providers, DAA continues to serve the Atlanta, Georgia area for nearly 40 years. The medical providers at DAA have over 200 years of combined experience in their fields and all physicians are certified by the American Board of Dermatology. In addition to providing general and cosmetic dermatology services as well as Mohs surgery for skin cancer removal and other skin cancer treatments, DAA has nine in-house specialty centers, including our state-of-the-art surgical suite, The Laser Institute of Georgia, Skin Medics™ Medical Spa, The Psoriasis Treatment Center, The Griffin Center of Hair Restoration & Research, and more.
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. To help patients get the most from their treatments, Galderma recently rolled out their new rewards program—you earn points for every Galderma product purchase at DAA, and these points can earn you future discounts and other great perks. Plus, earning points can advance you to higher levels of the program, so the rewards just keep getting better. Enrollment is free, so visit ASPIRERewards.com to sign up or to get more details.
At DAA, offering a wide variety of safe and effective options is a core part of our goal of providing each patient with the treatment (whether it’s cosmetic or medical) that’s best suited to their needs. To take the first step toward healthy skin that you’re confident in, call DAA to schedule an appointment .

Summer may be wrapping up as children and parents are starting to prepare for the new school year, but that doesn’t mean you have to kiss your summer glow good-bye. Our August cosmetic specials have arrived to help you keep your skin (and more) looking great year-round.
Cosmetic Day – August 5th and August 19th, 2015
Our Cosmetic Days are the perfect opportunity to banish wrinkles and make sure your cosmetic facial injections (like Botox® and facial fillers) are up-to-date, all while saving some cash. For your convenience, we’re offering our exclusive special pricing on two days this month, August 5th and August 19th, to help you fit this essential part of your beauty regimen into your schedule.
Glo Minerals Makeup Event – August 19th, 2015 from 11am – 3pm
Many of us get into a makeup routine that stays the same for years—same products, same colors, same application. But is your makeup really doing as much for your look as it could? This is the time to find out. On August 19th, we’ll have a Glo Minerals Makeup Artist available to give you a professional make-over and to show you the products and colors that work best with your individual facial features.
Non-Surgical Fat Reduction
Diet and exercise can do wonders for your health, but there is one downside—it doesn’t let you choose which areas of fat you’d like to lose. As a result, even if you maintain a healthy weight, you may have localized areas of unwanted fat. UltraShape® fat reduction and CoolSculpting® fat reduction use different approaches, but both can solve this problem without the need for liposuction, downtime, or discomfort. UltraShape® uses precise ultrasound energy to break up fat cells in the treatment area, while CoolSculpting® breaks up the fat cells with selective cooling, allowing the fat to be processed and eliminated by the body.
miraDry® Underarm Sweat Reduction
Sweating from the underarms is natural, but for some people, it extends beyond workout sessions and can cause embarrassing social situations. miraDry® treatments can target the underarm sweat glands and reduces underarm sweat by as much as 80%, often with just one treatment. Because you have so many sweat glands throughout your skin, it’s healthy for your body and gives you the comfort of long lasting sweat reduction.
Lytera® Skin Brightening System – 50% Off
SkinMedica® offers skincare products for a wide variety of skincare concerns, and their Lytera® system is a 90-day regimen that is specifically designed to repair sun damage, protect against new sun exposure, and give you a clearer, more radiant complexion. Plus, it’s all for at-home use, so you can improve the tone and brightness of your skin in a way that fits into your schedule. Don’t miss this limited-time opportunity to save 50% on your Lytera® system.
At Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA), we recognize that each patient has their own unique goals, whether it’s smoothing wrinkles, getting a slimmer midsection, reducing underarm sweat, or just getting a brighter complexion. To start learning how we can improve your skincare from head to toe, schedule a consultation, explore our website, or join us on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
There’s a reason why the internet is flooded with articles and blogs with titles like, “10 Workout Moves to Banish Belly Fat” and “Top Weight Loss Foods”—because looking slimmer is a goal that nearly everyone has, and it’s one that is particularly difficult to achieve. While diet and exercise are important for our everyday health and can help reduce overall body fat, they don’t allow us to pick and choose where the fat comes from, and those with a healthy body weight are often left with localized pockets of fat that won’t budge despite their best efforts. Fortunately, researchers recognized this problem and have developed procedures that can target specific areas of unwanted fat. Today, we’re taking a closer look at the latest fat reduction technology and breaking down the facts on each procedure.
CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical and non-invasive fat reduction technique that uses controlled cooling plates to apply precise cold temperatures to the targeted fat. Patients only feel a sensation of momentary cold and pressure, and can rest comfortably throughout their treatment while using a cell phone, reading a book, or even watching TV.
How does it break down fat cells? Fat is more vulnerable to cold than skin and other surrounding tissues. Applying controlled cold to an area of excess fat causes around 20% of the fat cells to freeze and die, and they are then naturally eliminated by the body.
What is the recovery process? CoolSculpting® treatments don’t require any downtime, so you can go right back to your normal daily activity after treatment.
Why might a patient choose CoolSculpting® over other fat reduction procedures? CoolSculpting® is entirely non-surgical and has achieved very high satisfaction throughout the thousands of CoolSculpting® treatments we’ve performed at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA), the first practice in Atlanta to offer the procedure.
What is a typical course of treatment? Patients only need one CoolSculpting® treatment to see results, although many patients choose to schedule multiple treatments for optimal results. Each treatment takes around one hour per treatment area, but as one of the few practices to offer DualSculpting®, DAA can use two CoolSculpting® devices to treat two areas of the body at once, cutting treatment time in half for patients who would otherwise need to treat the two areas back-to-back. Because the body gradually eliminates the frozen fat cells, most results are seen within about twelve weeks of the treatment session, although the results can continue to improve for up to six months.
SlimLipo™ is a laser that is used in conjunction with tumescent liposuction. The laser makes it easier for our surgeons to remove the fat, while also improving the skin’s firmness and tone in the process. Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the country because it achieves high patient satisfaction, and after performing the procedure for 25 years, Dr. Edmond Griffin and Dr. Scott Karempelis have seen SlimLipo™ boost those results even further.
How does it break down fat cells? SlimLipo™uses targeted energy of a precise wavelength to break down the walls of fat cells in the treatment area so that the liposuction can be less invasive and more effective. The laser also sends a second wavelength that tightens and firms the surrounding tissue for a slimmer, younger look.
What is the recovery process? SlimLipo™ is a surgical procedure, so most patients are advised to avoid strenuous physical activities for a few weeks, but because it is less invasive than traditional liposuction, many patients can return to work after a shorter recovery time than a traditional liposuction procedure requires.
Why might a patient choose SlimLipo™ over other fat reduction procedures? No fat reduction procedure is a substitute for a weight loss program or a healthy diet and exercise, but SlimLipo™ is able to produce more significant results than non-surgical treatments can.
What is a typical course of treatment? SlimLipo™ achieves results after just one procedure, but as with all fat reduction treatments, a healthy lifestyle is advised to help patients maintain their results long-term.
Like CoolSculpting®, UltraShape® fat reduction is entirely non-surgical and gradually reduces targeted fat using a handheld applicator which is guided across the treatment area by one of our highly skilled providers. Each 45-minute session is painless and patients can comfortably rest during their treatment.
How does it break down fat cells? UltraShape® uses precise ultrasound energy to break down the walls of fat cells in the treatment area. These damaged fat cells are then naturally eliminated by the body.
What is the recovery process? There is no downtime required after UltraShape® treatments, so patients can jump right back into their normal daily activities.
Why might a patient choose UltraShape® over other fat reduction procedures? Because UltraShape® treatments are painless, quick, and require no downtime, they’re especially easy for busy patients to fit into their schedules.
What is a typical course of treatment? While results start to show after just one treatment, patients who see the best results typically opt for three treatments, each spaced two to three weeks apart.
Every patient has unique needs and cosmetic goals, and with no shortage of fat reduction options available, most patients can easily find a treatment that fits them. However, it is important to note that fat reduction treatments are not meant to be a weight loss method; instead, they are designed for patients who have already reached or nearly reached their ideal weight, with only localized areas of fat that they would like to polish off. Schedule an appointment at DAA to discuss whether a fat reduction treatment can help you get your “beach body” back into shape.

At Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA), we realize that having healthy skin isn’t our patients’ only goal. Feeling confident in their appearance can help anyone be more positive, more empowered, and all-around happier. That’s why we offer both general dermatology and a variety of cosmetic treatments, so that our patients can look and feel their best. This June, we’re offering special savings on treatments to help you finally achieve the look you’ve been working toward.
For the Face…
Our Cosmetic Day on Wednesday, June 17th, offers one-day-only special pricing on some of our most popular cosmetic injections. Dermal fillers like Juvéderm, Restylane, and Belotero Balance® can smooth wrinkles by restoring the youthful volume that the facial skin has lost with age, and for some patients, can provide a subtle lip enhancement. Botox® and Dysport®, on the other hand, address wrinkles on the forehead and around the brow area by relaxing the tense muscles that are creating the creases. Regardless of which cosmetic facial injectable is the right solution for your signs of aging, each treatment takes just minutes to complete and typically requires no downtime, so it’s perfect on those who need to squeeze their cosmetic treatments into a busy schedule.
For patients who want to get the most out of their professional treatments, June’s Product of the Month can give your facial rejuvenation a boost from home. Skin Medica®’s TNS Essential Serum is specially formulated to give the face an all-around younger and more radiant appearance by combining two of Skin Medica®’s most effective and popular products: TNS Recovery Complex® and APS Corrective Complex™.
For the Body…
While many patients are focused on their facial appearance because it tends to be the most visible and noticeable, we can’t forget the summer phrase that invokes stress and self-consciousness for many: “beach body.” While a healthy diet and regular exercise are always important, some areas of fat can be especially stubborn, and this is why CoolSculpting® fat reduction treatments were developed. With no surgery, anesthesia, or patient discomfort, CoolSculpting® breaks down unwanted fat cells which can then be naturally eliminated by the body. The procedure generally requires no downtime, so it’s a great way to refine your physique and finally be proud of your “beach body.” But CoolSculpting® (like every other fat reduction treatment or surgery) doesn’t prevent new fat from forming in the treated area, so it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle in order to keep your results looking great.
At DAA, we’ve seen time and time again that the patients who see the best results from their cosmetic treatments are often those who see their appearance as a cooperative effort between themselves and their provider. By pairing professional treatments with diligent at-home care, you may be able to take years or even pounds off your appearance and keep that look for longer. To discuss how we can help you meet your aesthetic goals, schedule a consultation with us. Or, for more cosmetic and health tips, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
The thought of spring seems to put everyone in a good mood. The winter has ended, and we’re greeted with warm weather and the ability to more fully enjoy the outdoors. So much about the season is refreshing, and at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA), many of our patients have decided to follow suit and refresh their appearance. To help you embrace the season, here’s a step-by-step guide to rejuvenated, healthier skin head to toe:
Step 1: Wrinkle-Reducing Injections on our April 15th Cosmetic Day
At DAA, we have no shortage of treatments to minimize signs of facial aging. One of our most popular treatments is the use of cosmetic facial injections. Some patients prefer wrinkle reduction by relaxing the facial muscles with Botox® or Dysport®, while others seek to smooth wrinkles and replace lost volume with dermal fillers like Restylane® or Juvéderm®. Whichever product best fits your needs, the one-day specials at our April 15th Cosmetic Day will allow you to save some cash on these quick, zero-downtime treatments.
Step 2: Non-Surgical Fat Reduction
Unwanted fat is a problem that so many of us face. For patients who are healthy but have an area of fat that hasn’t responded to diet and exercise, UltraShape® fat reduction can be a solution that’s less invasive than liposuction and less frustrating than spending hours at the gym with no results. This treatment uses gentle yet targeted energy to break down stubborn fat cells in the treatment area, so these cells can be naturally cleansed from the body. With no downtime or discomfort and results that improve for weeks after treatment, most patients find that non-surgical fat reduction can easily fit into their busy schedules.
Step 3: Stop Skin Cancer in its Tracks
Healthy skin is beautiful skin, and skin cancer can have an effect on far more than just your appearance. At DAA, we recommend that patients of every age receive a skin cancer screening every year. While skin cancer often progresses rather slowly, this is only an advantage when we take action to diagnose and treat it early. And because patients typically have no symptoms of skin cancer other than potentially noticing a change in their skin, an annual screening by one of our skilled providers is the only way to stay on top of skin cancer.
Spring is a time when we celebrate renewal and watch the landscapes come back to life, and for patients who want to apply the same principle to their skin, our April specials offer several great ways to do so. To get started on your spring skincare, schedule an appointment or learn more about DAA by joining us on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
At Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA), we place great importance on having a collaborative and welcoming relationship with our patients, and we believe that when patients feel comfortable with their providers, it truly helps us to be able to serve you better. To further this effort, each month we are featuring one of our highly-skilled providers, and this month, the spotlight is on Kathryn Filipek MPAS, PA-C.
Kathryn’s medical expertise began with earning a Bachelor of Science in Biopsychology from the University of Michigan, as well as a Bachelor Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Nova Southeastern University. She then went on to earn her Master of Physician Assistant Studies from the University of Nebraska, and has been a certified physician assistant for over 15 years.
Throughout her career, Kathryn has continued to improve her mastery in the field through her membership in professional societies like the Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants and the American Academy of Physician Assistants. Before coming to DAA, Kathryn also gained valuable experience as a physician assistant in not only dermatology, but cardiology and cardiovascular surgery as well.
Since joining us at DAA in 2007, Kathryn has developed her expertise in a number of general dermatology and cosmetic dermatology treatments. Beyond the identification and treatment of skin conditions like skin cancer, acne, dermatitis, and warts, Kathryn enjoys helping cosmetic dermatology patients to achieve more confidence and self-esteem through treatments like CoolSculpting® fat reduction, and numerous anti-aging and facial rejuvenation treatments. One of her primary specialties is sclerotherapy, the removal of unwanted veins using precise injections that cause the vein to be absorbed by the body.
When she isn’t at DAA fulfilling her passion for patient care, Kathryn enjoys running, biking, kickboxing, competing in triathlons, and traveling. She is able to do a lot of these activities with her husband and two daughters. Kathryn was even able to do some recent medical mission work in Kenya, Africa.

At Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA), we offer a wide variety of treatments because we realize and appreciate that each patient is unique, and we are constantly striving to provide the best treatment available for each patient. We often see patients who, whether due to a skin sensitivity or simply a lack of necessity for more significant procedures, are seeking gentle treatments that will provide them with a subtle, more natural-looking rejuvenation. Below are some of our treatments that are effective in providing a gentle, subtle splash from the fountain of youth.
Illuminize Peel by Skin Medica® at Skin Medics™ Medical Spa— Chemical peels come in a variety of strengths and target a variety of concerns, but the Illuminize Peel is our most gentle. This peel improves overall skin tone and texture and can address minor skin imperfections to give the skin a youthful, healthy glow. Plus, because this peel penetrates less deeply than most other peels, it typically results in minimal to no visible peeling, so it’s a perfect way to revitalize your face before a special event.
FotoFacial® laser skin treatments—While it is one of our gentler laser treatments, FotoFacial® can address numerous skin conditions such as redness associated with rosacea or acne, wrinkles, age spots, and unwanted facial veins. The FotoFacial® laser system is non-ablative, which means that it rejuvenates the deeper layers of skin without harming the delicate surface skin. With no required downtime and treatments lasting only around 30 minutes, FotoFacial® is especially easy for patients to fit into their lives and schedules.
UltraShape® Fat Reduction – Non-invasive fat reduction is a new way to noticeably reduce fat in areas like the abdomen, flanks, and upper thighs while avoiding the downtime required after surgical fat removal. Using ultrasonic energy, UltraShape® fat reduction treatments breaks down fat cells and releases the fat for your body to eliminate naturally, all while you rest comfortably. While it is not suggested for obese patients, UltraShape® provides great results for patients of a healthy weight who are hoping to eliminate small amounts of stubborn fat.
Skin care products – Because we’re committed to helping our patients achieve healthy, younger, glowing skin both in and out of our office, we also offer skin care products you can use for at-home revitalization. Any of our providers can help you choose the products that will work best for your skin type and desired results. Plus, every month we offer a 20% discount on one Product of the Month, like our February featured product, Revision® Skincare Hydrating Serum.
How can I purchase your skin care products? – To provide you with the most personalized service possible, we are no longer offering our skincare products for purchase on our web site. However, you can purchase all of our dermatologist-selected skincare items at our facility. Simply contact DAA or stop in to check out our selection.
Regardless of your skin care goals and desired results, it’s always important to first find out what is the best way for you to achieve your results. Our highly skilled providers at DAA are experienced in understanding each patient’s skin and recommending the treatments that will help them feel and look their best.

At Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA), we are highly committed to giving our patients the best possible care and results. So we are excited to introduce you to three new pieces of technology that are allowing us to do our job even better! For anyone seeking to look their best, the Infini™ skin tightening system, the PicoWay laser, and the UltraShape® fat reduction system may provide new opportunities to do just that.
What does it treat? Lack of skin elasticity, loss of youthful volume, and scarring.
How does it work? The system consists of two micro-needled hand pieces. One is ideally configured for covering larger areas of skin more quickly, while the other is customized to deliver more precise treatment to small areas, like around the eyes.
What makes it different? Infini™ combines microneedling with fractional radio frequency and can target both superficial skin and deeper skin tissue. This versatility allows it to volumize and rejuvenate the skin while also stimulating the production of collagen, which helps to support the skin.
What does it treat? An especially wide array of tattoos, including tattoos that involve red ink and are exceptionally dark. Removing dark tattoos from dark-skinned individuals is difficult for most lasers, but PicoWay is much more effective in these situations. PicoWay is also used to treat difficult pigmentation disorders, like Nevus of Ota and stubborn melasma.
How does it work? The pulses of energy from the laser break up the undesired pigments into extremely small particles, which the body can then eliminate naturally.
What makes it different? The combination of shorter pulses of energy and higher peak power can remove tattoos in fewer treatments and can make the treatments more effective, safer, and more comfortable.
What does it treat? Unwanted areas of fat in the abdomen, flanks, and upper thighs in those who are of average weight or are mildly overweight.
How does it work? The painless system uses energy to break up the fat cells in the treated area so that the body can eliminate them naturally.
What makes it different? While the results are as long lasting as liposuction, UltraShape® is minimally invasive and does not require any downtime. Unlike other nonsurgical fat reduction systems, UltraShape® does not carry risks of bruising or paresthesia.
While new technology like Infini™, PicoWay, and UltraShape® can better the field of cosmetic skincare, it’s important to remember that the equipment is only as good as the provider administering the treatment. That’s why DAA, with 150 years of combined experience among our top-notch providers, is the perfect place to go for cosmetic skincare. Contact us today to schedule a consultation about your skincare needs, and check us out on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ for updates on future new additions to our skincare toolbox.
