Ways to Improve Your Appearance This Holiday Season

With the help of Alexander Gross, MD and his medical and spa staff at the Georgia Dermatology Center, you can achieve a more youthful look with a minimal amount of downtime, ready to show up at holiday events looking bright and refreshed.


For those who want to be rid of unwanted inches of fat in certain body areas, cool laser liposuction is a quick, minimally invasive outpatient procedure. It liquifies fat, reforms collagen and tightens the skin. This procedure is perfect for small areas of fat found around the face, neck, or chin, with visible results within a week and continued results for an ongoing two months afterwards. These liposuction procedures are performed in the office using a local anesthetic, with few side effects and a fast recovery.

Mini Face Lift

Also called an S-Lift, the mini face lift is a great alternative to a full face lift, with less invasiveness, less complications and a quicker recovery period for a more youthful but natural look. A mini face lift procedure is very effective for patients who have good skin elasticity in the Milton, Alpharetta, Gainesville, Suwanee, Sandy Springs, and Roswell areas near Atlanta.

During a mini face lift, excess skin is removed from the cheeks, chin, and neck using an S-formed excision around the ears to lift the skin and its underlying tissues. This procedure can be done within 2-4 hours and can last up to 10 years for most people. It is performed using local anesthesia and oral sedatives, with normal activities resuming after just 3 days for most.


Nonsurgical injectables are dermal fillers that restore skin volume and are a fantastic way to look younger in time for the holidays. Using Restylane, a hyaluronic-based injectable, wrinkles and lines can be filled to smooth the skin, especially around the mouth and on the lips. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is found naturally in the body, though with age, its production diminishes. Results from Restylane and Restylane Silk injections can last up to 6 months, with an improvement in facial appearance becoming apparent within 2 weeks’ time.


The Georgia Dermatology Center was one of the initial medical spas in the Atlanta area to offer Exilis to patients. Exilis is a procedure that delivers thermal heat deep into the skin using radio frequency energy to remodel collagen, tighten skin, and remove fat. Patients are safe and comfortable during this procedure that can treat facial and body areas including the neck, jaw line, arms, waist, back, thighs and ankles. The treatment is a fast way to contour the body’s shape using ultrasound energy on resistant fatty layers. Imagine rebuilding your facial structure to smooth wrinkles and produce new collagen stores. Exilis is FDA-approved, painless, with no anesthesia necessary, and requires no downtime.

Consider booking an appointment at the Georgia Dermatology Center, which offers a full array of dermatological solutions. Contact the friendly staff for more information or if you have any questions concerning ways to improve your skin.
