Time marches on and never stops, but we can help you catch up with it and always look your best. At Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA), we have a wide array of procedures to force time to take a breather and to help you look as young as you feel.
A few of our injectable options for wrinkles, including Botox® and Dysport®, and facial fillers such asRestylane®, and Sculptra®, are used to take care of problem areas where fine lines and wrinkles are not desired. These products also aim to fill lost volume in the cheeks, lips, or other areas where more volume is sought. Dermal injectable results vary between types of fillers and the severity of the wrinkles corrected, but most will last for six months to one year.
Another choice available to our patients is laser wrinkle removal and correction. Using our Fraxel orSmartXide DOT lasers, we will safely correct some of your more difficult wrinkles and age spots, resulting in a smoother, younger look.
For regular skin care maintenance, we also have our medical spa, Skin Medics™, where you can take a more proactive and relaxing route to a younger look. Our licensed medical estheticians work closely with our physicians to pick the perfect skin care program for your needs. Using a full line of skin care products, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and facials, Skin Medics™ Medical Spa can give you an alternative method to dealing with wrinkles and acne, or simply help give your face a smooth, youthful glow.

Cartessa™ Tetra Cool CO2 Laser Treatment
Cartessa™ Tetra Cool CO2 Laser Treatment is a new CO2-based laser treatment that uses advanced CoolPeel® technology to address signs of facial aging like wrinkles as well as skin texture and scarring. The treatment utilizes short pulse laser energy, customized to the specific needs of each patient, to deliver precise, effective skin resurfacing results that last. Cartessa™ Tetra Cool treatments do not cause any thermal damage to the skin and do not require significant downtime for recovery compared to other CO2 laser technologies.
Fraxel® Laser Treatment produces thousands of tiny but deep columns in your skin, known as microscopic treatment zones. This treatment eliminates old epidermal pigmented cells. It also penetrates deep into the dermis. Just as important, though, are the areas of skin the Fraxel® laser leaves untouched. For every microscopic zone the laser targets and treats intensively, it leaves the surrounding tissue unaffected and intact. This “fractional” treatment allows the skin to heal much faster than if the entire area were treated at once, using the body’s natural healing process to create new, healthy tighter tissue to replace skin imperfections.
Botox® Cosmetic helps to turn back the hands of time by relaxing the muscles that create wrinkles around our foreheads and eyes. Our eyebrows are one of the most expressive features of our faces. However, the repetitive motions used in everyday expressions cause furrow lines between the brows, wrinkles along the forehead, and crow’s feet along the outsides of the eyes. Made from a purified form of the botulinum toxin which helps to relax these expression muscles and create a smoother skin around the eyes, a younger visage is just a few minutes away with Botox® Cosmetic.
Dysport® is a botulinum-A treatment for wrinkles and fine lines on the face. Dysport® works by relaxing the targeted muscles and smoothing expression lines. Dermatology Associates of Atlanta’s cosmetic injection patients enjoy this procedure as it only takes a few minutes and requires no downtime for a refresh, youthful appearance. Results typically last four to six months.
Available at our Skin Medics™ Medical Spa, chemical peels are an effective treatment in refreshing the look of skin with minimal downtime. Using specific combinations of chemical solutions, our peels can be customized to help treat your specific skin type. The word “peel” in the treatment title indicates the procedure’s effect on the skin: it causes the dull and damaged outer layers of the treatment area to slough off, revealing new, healthy skin. Chemical peels can help skin conditions ranging from acne and oily skin to dry skin and wrinkles.
Ultherapy® helps to tighten sagging skin that may give away our age. However, Ulthera® is different because it uses ultrasound technology to first map out the imperfections in underlying tissue and then treat those areas with sound waves. The sound waves penetrate the skin without incisions or laser light (which may be damaging to certain skin tones) and stimulate collagen production. Perfect for sagging eyebrows and eyelids as well as sagging neck skin, Ulthera® works on the same tissues addressed in facelift without the invasiveness and downtime of surgery.
