Lesser-Known Cosmetic Issues Our Dermatologists Can Treat

sweatingOur experienced board-certified dermatologists and physician assistants are honored to help patients every day to both treat their skin conditions and enhance their appearance. Most of our patients are already aware that we offer treatments that improve fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other common aesthetic concerns. However, there are many cosmetic issues we treat that are not so well-known, including excessive sweat, a “double chin,” thinning hair, and stretch marks.

Excessive Sweat

Unwanted underarm sweat can be a source of embarrassment for anyone, and it’s not limited to hot days. If you struggle with excessive sweat, you may be a good candidate for miraDry® sweat reduction. With this non-invasive and FDA-approved cosmetic treatment, we are able to use targeted microwave technology to impair the sweat glands in your underarms so they can no longer produce sweat.

Double Chin

Fat can accumulate anywhere on the body, and some pockets of unwanted fat are more stubborn than others – and the area under the chin is one of them. It’s often known as the “double chin” but whatever you call it, it’s often resistant to diet and exercise and it can be a problem for people of any size.

To address this stubborn area, we offer CoolSculpting® nonsurgical fat reduction. During this procedure, the CoolSculpting® applicator delivers precise cooling to the treatment area to selectively damage fat cells in the area, slimming it down for a leaner contour.

Thinning Hair

Hair loss affects men and women of all ages, and it can put a serious damper on your confidence. Dermatology Associates of Atlanta has been treating hair loss for 40 years and offers a variety of non-surgical hair restoration treatments, including:

  • Non-surgical hair restoration
  • Microneedling with natural growth factors
  • Microneedling with AnteAGE MD®
  • Red light therapy
  • HydraFacial® Keravive scalp treatment
  • Scalp micropigmentation
  • Regenerative cell therapy
  • Oral supplements and prescription medications
  • Prescription topical compound medications

Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are common in people of all ages, but especially in women who have given birth and people who have experienced weight fluctuations. If you would like to minimize your stretch marks, our team offers microneedling treatments. During these treatments, we use ultrafine needles to break down the old collagen fibers in your stretch marks and stimulate new collagen, leading to a smoother and more even look.
