If you have picked up the February issue of Atlanta Parent you probably saw Dermatology Associates of Atlanta. Patients who bring in the featured ad before February 28th, 2013 can receive 20% off CoolSculpting®.
CoolSculpting® is the latest non-surgical fat reduction technology, approved for the flanks and abdomen. Patients looking to eliminate small pockets of stubborn fat can benefit from this treatment and minimal downtime. Through a process called cryolipolysis, cold temperatures are applied to targeted areas to freeze the fat. Since fat is gradually expelled through the lymphatic system following treatment, patients typically see full results in four to six months. Although noticeable results are shown after one treatment, many choose to have a second treatment for optimal results.
The winter season is upon us, with warm sweaters and holiday festivities we temporarily forget that spring break is just around the corner. The providers of Dermatology Associates of Atlanta want you to look and feel confident when it’s time to put the coats and pants back in the closet. With CoolSculpting® technology, patients can eliminate pockets of stubborn, unwanted fat around their abdomen flanks, and back.
This non-invasive fat reduction treatment uses a process called cryolipolysis to target fat cells with cold temperatures. The cold, applied externally through a specialized hand piece, damages the fat cells without causing harm to the surrounding skin. Patients enjoy the fat reduction benefits of this FDA-cleared technology as it does not use knives or needles and they can return to their daily activities immediately.
Dermatology Associates of Atlanta was the first to offer CoolSculpting® in GA and now is the only practice to offer DualCool: two CoolSculpting® machines in the same office allowing two areas to be treated at the same time for patient convenience. DAA has performed more CoolSculpting® procedures than any other practice in Georgia. DualCool allows patients to target multiple areas at one time, expediting treatment time. Results will begin to show three weeks after treatment as the fat cells are eliminated gradually through the lymphatic system. Full results are expected within four to six months. As results are not immediate, now is a great time to try this non-invasive fat reduction treatment. Patients will see noticeable results after one treatment, but many have an additional treatment for optimal results.

You’ve probably heard the phrase “two is better than one” at some point in your life, and Dermatology Associates of Atlanta has set out to guarantee this statement rings true with their additional CoolSculpting® machine. As the first practice in Georgia to offer this method of fat reduction, Dermatology Associates is proud to now be the only Atlanta practice offering two CoolSculpting machines for Dual Cool treatments. By performing DualSculpting treatments, we can provide shorter treatment times for each patient and a more flexible treatment schedule.
CoolSculpting is the perfect, non-invasive solution for eliminating small areas of unwanted fat without liposuction surgery. By using a process called Cryolipolysis™, CoolSculpting freezes the fat within cells beyond viability. Over time, the fat is expelled through the body’s lymphatic system. CoolSculpting is designed for patients who are in good physical condition and have small pockets of fat that just won’t respond to diet and exercise.
Since the process is gradual, patients usually begin noticing results about 2 or 3 months after their initial treatment. Full results, which produce a 20-40% fat reduction, will appear in 4-6 months. Although one treatment will produce evident results, some patients pursue a second treatment to optimize CoolSculpting results. During treatment, the CoolSculpting device is attached to the treatment area and left for a period of time (about an hour per area). Although you may feel a slight pinch and cold when the treatment begins, the targeted area will become numb. You will be able to read, watch a movie, use a laptop, talk on the phone, etc. during treatment.
Some patients have asked why two CoolSculpting machines should matter to them. The CoolSculpting device only treats one area at a time; typically the size of one hand. Although treatment isn’t uncomfortable, it can be tedious for patients who wish to treat multiple areas. With DualSculpting, treatment times can be halved to help get you back to your busy schedule.

Zeltiq Coolsculpting is the newest technology in body sculpting that uses cryolyposis to literally “freeze your fat off.”
Dr. Edmond Griffin, a Zeltiq provider in the Atlanta area, has recently added the body contouring procedure which utilizes cryolipolysis to his list of services. One of the few practices in the U.S. that offers Zeltiq, Dr. Griffin is proud to be one of the first to offer this non-invasive fat reduction option in body contouring.
Zeltiq, while not recommended for those seeking to remove large amounts of fat, is ideal for patients that are in relative good health who want to remove stubborn spots or pockets of fat. The procedure isolates fat pockets and utilizes cooling technology to freeze fat cells, which then triggers a slow death of the fat cells over the next 3-4 months.
