If you have picked up the February issue of Atlanta Parent you probably saw Dermatology Associates of Atlanta. Patients who bring in the featured ad before February 28th, 2013 can receive 20% off CoolSculpting®.
CoolSculpting® is the latest non-surgical fat reduction technology, approved for the flanks and abdomen. Patients looking to eliminate small pockets of stubborn fat can benefit from this treatment and minimal downtime. Through a process called cryolipolysis, cold temperatures are applied to targeted areas to freeze the fat. Since fat is gradually expelled through the lymphatic system following treatment, patients typically see full results in four to six months. Although noticeable results are shown after one treatment, many choose to have a second treatment for optimal results.

Atlanta dermatologists now offer miraDry®, a non-invasive treatment for disruptive underarm sweating
Dermatology Associates of Atlanta First to Offer miraDry® For Non-Surgical, Permanent Sweat Reduction
ATLANTA, GA, July 26th, 2012 –Dermatology Associates of Atlanta is the first in the Atlanta area and all of Georgia to offer the FDA approved miraDry® system for underarm sweating. Using an electromagnetic thermolysis system, miraDry, focuses thermal energy to destroy sweat glands in adults 18 and over. Unlike other sweating treatments such as Botox® injections or invasive surgical procedures, this technology is safe and effective for permanent sweat reduction.
Appropriate for those with hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) or those looking to eliminate embarrassing clothes staining and body odor, the miraDry® technology selectively targets sweat glands under the arm. Since sweat glands cannot regenerate, treatment produces permanent results. The August 2012 issue of O, the Oprah Magazine, featured miraDry® as a promising permanent solution for excessive underarm sweat.
The technology uses a cooling system to prevent the skin’s surface from burning and help maximize patient comfort. The device also carries the added benefit of eliminating underarm hair during the treatment. The miraDry® procedure is performed over two, hour long in-office treatments under local anesthesia, with a three month period between treatments. This procedure is non-invasive requiring little recovery time. Most patients are able to return back to their daily activities immediately after treatment.
Numerous studies have shown high rates of patient satisfaction through a single office visit. Dr. Ashley R. Curtis, of Dermatology Associates of Atlanta, is aware of other treatments available to prevent excess sweating, but is enthusiastic about the safety and effectiveness of this new permanent solution. She has experience with the aforementioned surgical technique and also Botox®, but finds this new treatment very appealing for patients who want a permanent non-surgical option. She notes the high success rate and fast return to daily activities as most important to his patients.
Dermatology Associates of Atlanta miraDry® provider Mara Grosswald, PA-C also shared, “This procedure is ideal for both men and women struggling with the physical and societal implications of underarm sweating. It’s a safe treatment because your skin has numerous locations from which sweat can be emitted for cooling. It’s a straightforward, efficient answer to make underarm sweating a thing of the past.”
Dermatology Associates of Atlanta will offer the miraDry® procedure at their 5555 Peachtree Dunwoody Road NE office. To learn more about this fast, effective, and comfortable procedure please call (404) 256-4457 to schedule a consultation.
