Atlanta, GA, July 28, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Dermatology Associates of Atlanta continue to stay on the forefront of cosmetic dermatology technology as one of the first Atlanta, Georgia dermatology practices to offer the latest acne therapy treatment, skin tightening system, and “Cryolipo” noninvasive liposuction technique.
One such new technology is Isolaz™, the only acne therapy to combine a vacuum with laser light to deeply penetrate and purify pores. With immediate results within 2 days of treatment, the Isolaz™ system extracts dirt deep within pores and destroys acne causing bacteria to dry out, flatten, and reduce redness in blemishes. Added benefits of Isolaz™ include no downtime, no pain, a reduction in the appearance of red and brown spots, sun damage and symptoms of rosacea, and the removal of unwanted facial hair.
Advancements in skin tightening technology have also led to the development of Pellevé™ : a recently FDA approved wrinkle reduction system available at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta. Pellevé™ emits heat energy that builds up between the fat and skin tissue layers on the face, causing the underlying collagen to contract and firm. Pellevé™ results in smoother, tighter skin, less wrinkles, and stimulation of collagen growth. Unlike other available systems, Pellevé™ reduces facial wrinkles with no anesthesia or downtime. Recently featured on popular TV shows like “The Doctors,” Dermatology Associates of Atlanta is one of two practices in Georgia to offer this technology.
Dermatology Associates of Atlanta is also the only provider in Georgia to currently offer the newest noninvasive liposuction system called Cryolipolysis™, more commonly referred to as “cryolipo.” Featured recently on Good Morning America, the cryolipo device emits cold to the targeted area, causing your body to unleash a natural inflammatory response to the temperature change and subsequently dispose of damaged fat cells. Unlike other noninvasive liposuction techniques, the “cryolipo” approach causes the body to dispose of damaged fat cells through the lymphatic system.
As leaders in the dermatological field, Dermatology Associates of Atlanta are also involved in the testing and development of new technologies. Dermatology Associates of Atlanta’s founder, Dr. Edmond I. Griffin, is currently involved in clinical trials of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injections – a technique where blood is drawn from the patient, the plasma is separated through centrifugation, and the PRP is reinjected into the treated area. The growth factors associated with PRP accelerate tissue regeneration, showing promise for future treatments promoting collagen growth in skin, aiding in hair transplantation, and improved pain management/injury healing.
