At Thacker Dermatology, we are always working to bring the latest and greatest technology and products to South Georgia and the surrounding areas.
We introduced the EmSculpt in our practice almost one year ago, which is the first FDA-cleared energy device approved to burn fat and build muscle mass, and have had great success treating patients’ abdomens and buttocks. At the end of September, our new small, contoured applicators will arrive and allow us to treat biceps, triceps, calves, and thighs in only four 30-minute sessions over two weeks! We have EmSculpt memberships available that allow interest-free monthly payments to be spread over the course of the year.
Also coming to our office is miraDry, which will be a game-changer for anyone suffering from excessive sweating. The miraDry system is the only FDA-cleared treatment that can dramatically reduce underarm sweat by addressing the root cause of excessive sweat and its accompanying symptoms. This system boasts impressive clinical results with an 82-percent reduction in sweat, 89-percent reduction in odor, and 70-percent reduction in hair in one to two treatments.
It may seem like a radical concept as our bodies certainly need the ability to naturally cool themselves; however, only two percent of the 2 million sweat glands in your body are located in the underarms. Eliminating that two percent does not affect your body’s ability to naturally cool itself, so why put up with underarm sweat and odor if you don’t have to?
Along with these great new devices, we’ve also introduced a new product line called Alastin and have started carrying products from the DermaBlend makeup line. Alastin is a skincare line known for its patented TriHex Technology, which is a proprietary blend of active peptides and botanicals specifically engineered to work with the skin to clear out old and damaged collagen and elastin proteins while supporting the skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen and elastin. Elastin is the protein that gives the “snap back” in skin. This technology can’t be found in any other product lines and is backed by extensive science and pre- and post-treatment biopsies. We are thrilled to be the first to bring Alastin to the area.
Our patients are also loving the introduction of the DermaBlend makeup line as they are able to leave our office with makeup on even after a procedure thanks to its non-comedogenic formula. DermaBlend Flawless Creator allows lightweight and customizable coverage levels in a wide variety of skin tones.
Feeling like you just really need to see all this new stuff to truly believe it? Come see us at our annual Cosmetics and Cocktails event! This year’s event will be held Thursday, September 19 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at our office located at 4233 Camelot Crossing in Valdosta, Georgia.
