DAA is First Practice in Georgia to Use CoolSculpting by Zeltiq

Dermatology Associates of Atlanta introduces “Cryolipolysis™” procedure to Georgians: ridding patients of fat without surgery.

Using 35 years of experience, serving over 30,000 Atlanta patients with five board certified physicians and three certified providers, Dermatology Associates of Atlanta(DAA) adopts yet another beauty technology: CoolSculpting™ by Zeltiq™.

Atlanta Coolsculpting™ by Zeltiq™, also known as “cryolipo”, is the newest non-invasive fat reduction technology available. Featured on television’s Good Morning America and CBS, Cryolipolysis™  “freezes the fat off” of the abdomen, hips, and back (love handles) of men and women by impairing the fat cells in a targeted area. The impaired area releases the body’s inflammatory response: causing disposal of the fat cells slowly over the months following the procedure.

Impressed by the technology’s preliminary “liposuction-like” results, Dr. Edmond Griffin, founder of Dermatology Associates of Atlanta, even trialed the procedure on himself before becoming the first provider in Georgia to offer the fat reduction technology in early June, 2010.

Dr. Griffin expresses the significance of this new beauty technology, “People see cosmetic procedures like cryolipo on TV and think they’re only available to the ultra wealthy of Los Angeles and New York. We’re making non-surgical fat reduction a beauty reality for Atlantans.”

An ideal procedure for hard-to-trim areas, each CoolSculpting™ treatment takes about an hour, requires no anesthesia or down time, and typically produces a 20% fat reduction in the treated zone. Patients usually report only minor swelling and bruising post-CoolSculpting™; making the procedure instantly popular among athletes and busy professionals who can’t take time off from work or their strict fitness regimes.
