Fall is in the Air at Dermatology Consultants
We love fall and all the good things it brings like sports activities, family gatherings, and long country drives to enjoy the changing leaves. It’s also a great time to revisit your skincare routine. Temperatures are dropping, days become shorter and it’s time to look our best for upcoming holiday parties. Just like fall fashion has trends, so do skincare and aesthetics. As dermatologists who truly believe that “health is beauty” we love when patients want to take care of their skin and ask about our favorite treatments. Our goal is to help you look and feel your very best with clear, revitalized skin that acts young in every season. We’re thrilled to have new, cutting-edge treatments that will help you get the results you’re looking for in our Atlanta and Covington offices. Read on to discover what’s new in skincare at Dermatology Consultants this season.
Are you sweating through your shirts and stopping yourself from raising your arms or hugging friends? With all of the upcoming family and friends holiday gatherings, this is certainly not the time to do so! Dermatology Consultants is now one of 25 practices in the US to help eliminate excessive sweat with patches by Brella. FDA-cleared for the treatment of excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), Brella uses targeted technology in single-use sodium patches applied for up to 3 minutes to reduce underarm sweating so you can feel confident during daily activities. The in-office treatment is non-invasive, needle-free, aluminum-free, and provides patients with results lasting 3 to 4 months.
If you’ve spent money on creams and potions that claim to work on cellulite from the outside, you know that much more than topicals is needed! We generally notice body flaws like buttocks and thigh dimpling when the weather is warm and swimsuit season arrives. With spring far away, taking care of cellulite now is a wise move. Many people mistakenly confuse cellulite with fat. Instead, cellulite is depressions in the skin caused by fibrous bands called septa. Now, with Avéli at Dermatology Consultants, you have a better option to combat cellulite right where it starts- at the individual septa bands that cause unsightly rippling and dimples. Using the hand-held Avéli device, your expert Provider will gently break the bands causing cellulite so your skin will lay smetteroother and dimples will flatten out. This minimally invasive procedure will show results after just one session with light soreness and bruising that subsides in about a week. It’s the only long-term solution for the reduction of cellulite that targets the dimples at their source. Coupled with regular fitness and healthy eating, you’ll be able to show off your smoother, tighter shape in time for spring break!
If you feel your age is starting to reflect more in the mirror, don’t despair. Along with healthy eating and good skincare routines, firming up the skin with the latest technology can make you look and feel younger. Because we can’t stop gravity from bringing down facial muscles, we need to tone them to stand up to time and wear. Enter Sofwave, the latest FDA-cleared technology that utilizes ultrasound energy to lift and refine the skin around the brow, submental or jaw area, and neck while reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Sofwave produces new collagen by stimulating the dermis with Ultrasound Parallel Beam technology and reveals revitalized skin immediately, with increased results as the collagen builds naturally. Similar to microneedling with radiofrequency, Sofwave is a great non-invasive alternative with zero downtime. With results from just one 30-45 minute session, you’ll be able to show off smoother, more lifted skin in upcoming family photos.
Plump up the skin with the newest non-surgical solution for sagging skin, Ellacor. This new micro-coring device precisely and gently removes tiny cores of skin to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. Once the procedure is done, your skin will work to close the holes visually, bringing on tighter, smoother skin with no scarring and visible results in lifting drooping jawlines and jowls. Ellacor also softens around the mouth and upper lip lines while smoothing wrinkles and improving texture. This first-of-its-kind treatment for aging skin is fully customizable to your needs and boosts the skin with firmness and lift. A carefully scheduled appointment allowing the appropriate recovery (typically a few days) can create a very impressive non-invasive lower face lift!
