At Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA), we’re dedicated to providing our patients with the best care possible, and throughout our nearly 40 years of serving the Atlanta area, we’ve found that great patient care involves much more than just the expertise and skill of our physicians. Patients also need to feel like they understand their healthcare providers, trust them, and can communicate effectively. To contribute to this cooperative relationship between our patients and our practitioners, each month we’re highlighting one of our providers to help patients get to know more about them, beyond their bios and their medical credentials. This month, the spotlight is on one of our licensed aestheticians, Crystal Stoddart.
Although she’s now made her home in Georgia, Crystal is originally from Queens, New York. Cosmetic treatments and skincare have always been her passion; even while she was growing up, Crystal loved giving her cousins facials and brow-shaping sessions. Before bringing her skills and education to our on-site Skin Medics™ Medical Spa, Crystal attended and graduated from the Atlanta Institute of Aesthetics to become a licensed aesthetician.
Since she joined the DAA team in 2013, Crystal has developed a vast array of specialties. Her expertise spans a wide variety of skincare treatments, including CoolSculpting® non-surgical fat reduction, acne surgery, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and micro-needling. Micro-needling is a procedure that uses a specialized tool called Réjuvapen®. Réjuvapen® contains many ultra-fine needles which lightly perforate the skin, helping the treated skin build new collagen to minimize acne scars and other facial scarring, as well as multiple signs of aging. To help her patients complete their newly rejuvenated look, Crystal also specializes in makeup application.
Part of Crystal’s passion for her job stems from her ability to work with patients every day to help them address their unique skincare concerns, and her love of socializing doesn’t end when she’s off the clock. In her free time, Crystal enjoys spending time with her daughter, as well as reading and going out with her friends. She’s an avid Jay-Z fan, and one of her favorite summer outings is the classic road trip.
At DAA, we strive every day to create a comfortable and pleasant environment with excellent patient care, and Crystal is a vital part of DAA and our atmosphere.
