Let Dermatology Consultants Take You Beyond the Face
If you have been seeing a dermatologist to help with anti-aging efforts we applaud you. The providers at Dermatology Consultants love introducing patients to methods that help them take control of their aging and gain confidence. While we cannot stop the hands of time, we can slow their effects on the skin. Aging happens to more than just the skin on our faces. Chins, jawlines, stomachs, arms, thighs, and more can all start sagging with age, weight fluctuations, and hormonal changes. Regardless of how often you work out, a toned and sculpted look can still be difficult to achieve. Did you know that we can help with your body sculpting concerns as well? The body contouring experts at Dermatology Consultants in Atlanta help patients achieve their goals so they can feel confident in their own skin.
Our team is highly trained and experienced in performing the following non-surgical procedures that can firm, tighten, and sculpt troubled areas “beyond the face” with minimal treatments.
Are you ready to tackle your cellulite while you can still be covered up? Our newest Avéli treatment is a minimally invasive device that your provider will use to effectively target specific cellulite dimples. Avéli gently targets the connective tissues causing the rippling and releases them through cutting. The connective tissue bands are then relaxed and the skin will become smooth and even. You’ll receive local anesthesia to numb the area and provide comfort. Best of all, you only need one treatment for results. Talk to your provider if you are interested in Avéli for cellulite reduction.
Have you been battling a bulge at your waist every time you sit down? The middle age spread is real and with age. Most of us have pockets of fat that just won’t go away. Whether it’s the dreaded “muffin top” that puffs up over the waistband, untoned arms or a double chin, these common trouble spots can stick around even after diets have ended. Thankfully, Dermatology Consultants is among the first and longest-running providers of CoolSculpting in Georgia with several awards of recognition for our expert treatments. Our CoolSculpting technicians are all graduates of CoolSculpting University and have the highest level of training. CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved and non-invasive way to reduce fat in the stomach, love handles, thighs, hips and other small areas such as under the buttocks, the chin and jawline. It gently and effectively freezes fat cells leaving the skin and surrounding tissue unharmed.
CoolSculpting was created by scientists to eliminate resistant fat cells that do not respond to diet and exercise. The process, called cryolipolysis, freezes the cells which then die, and are naturally eliminated by the body. The process works well for both men and women, and is best for those that are not obese but want to get rid of bulges or pockets of stubborn fat. Most people turn to CoolSculpting as an alternative to liposuction because there is no downtime, anesthesia, or side effects.
Even better, Dermatology Consultants now has CoolSculpting® Elite, the next generation CoolSculpting® technology with dual applicators to treat 2 areas of fat at the same time!
If you have been frustrated with cellulite and tried creams or exercising with no relief, it is time to talk to your dermatologist. And you are not alone– approximately 90% of women are troubled with cellulite! While it usually shows up in mid-life, cellulite is really just a term for bundled fat showing through the skin. Sun damage, body fat, loose skin, and thinning skin all contribute to the appearance of cellulite. Today’s advanced treatments can bring you tighter, smoother, toned skin on your trouble spots. Emtone is the world’s first anti-cellulite treatment that uses both radiofrequency and targeted pressure energy to help diminish the look of all types of cellulite, all over the body. While it is great for cellulite, the treatment also helps with dimpled love handles, stomachs, and even arms.
Do you leak urine when you laugh, cough or in other situations? Incontinence can occur from age, childbirth, and menopause. It does not have to be this way– EmSella can help! Like EmSculpt which works on abdominal muscles, EmSella uses the same electromagnetic technology to stimulate and strengthen the pelvic floor muscle. Over a series of 30 minute treatments, you’ll experience more bladder control throughout your day.
Do you want a tighter, more toned abdomen or buttocks? If you are at a stable weight that is ideal for you, EmSculpt is a great option that effectively engages your muscles like a mini-workout. In fact, you will look like you have had a major workout after just one 30-minute session! The device uses high-intensity electromagnetic energy to create thousands of mini-pulses that contract your muscles. Similar to doing situps, squats, or using weights, the rapid pulses simulate an intense workout in a fraction of the time. In fact, the entire 30-minute session is equal to 20,000 muscle contractions! This non-surgical body sculpting treatment has no downtime, and can easily fit into your busy schedule.
If you are looking for firmer, more lifted, and toned skin on your neck, chin, and jawline, Ultherapy is a great solution. Chosen as an alternative to more invasive treatments like a face or eye lift, Ultherapy uses ultrasound heat energy to stimulate the skin at the dermis layer. This causes minor damage to the dermis through heat, which then encourages collagen production. Collagen is the building block of bouncy, firm skin that gives a youthful look and diminishes through the aging process. Ultherapy is the perfect option for someone that does not have time for surgery and wants to restore a youthful look naturally. While there is an immediate lift after the procedure, the real results come in about 4-6 months, as the collagen is ignited and skin becomes firmer and more toned.
If you are our patient, you are probably well versed in taking care of your face. Yet many of our patients have loose skin under the chin that creates submental fullness, or the dreaded “double chin.” Caused by genetics, weight gain, and aging, it affects even those that are not overweight and are resistant to diet and exercise. If this is your area of concern, we have an FDA-approved nonsurgical solution that contours and reduces fat under the chin. Kybella is the first and only nonsurgical treatment offered in Atlanta to slowly reduce fat under the chin. The injection contains a naturally occurring molecule that dissolves and destroys fat. When injected properly, all other cells are left healthy and intact. Your physician will inject small doses of Kybella under your chin to gradually diminish fat cells and leave you with a more toned and slim jaw and chin area. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatments and your provider can help make the right plan for you.
Aesthetic treatments are constantly improving. The latest treatment to combat cellulite and sagging skin is Morpheus 8. This small device targets subdermal skin layers through deep fractional radiofrequency at multiple levels. What does this mean? When the Morpheus 8 device is gently guided over your troubled areas, the microneedles target the underlying tissues to effectively trigger collagen production, resulting in smoother, tighter, younger-acting skin. The procedure is minimally invasive. You may experience some redness post treatment, however you may resume normal activities immediately following treatment.
Qwo is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for moderate to severe cellulite. This revolutionary treatment is an injectable formulation that consists of two enzymes that degrade collagen molecules. When Qwo is injected into the area beneath a dimple, it stimulates the initiation of ESR. ESR involves the enzymatic degradation of collagen-rich fibrous septae which play a key role in the pathophysiology of cellulite. By disrupting these subdermal fibrous structures, Qwo causes the release of cellulite-associated skin depressions and smooths the surface of the skin. Furthermore, Qwo stimulates the production of new collagen molecules (neocollagenesis) which further improves the appearance of the skin.
