Der­ma­tol­ogy Con­sul­tants in Cov­ing­ton makes new changes for 10-year birth­day

The Covington News - - HEALTH - SA­MAN­THA REAR­DON news@cov­news.com

Ten years ago Kim Gooden re­mem­bers a time when there was no full-ser­vice der­ma­tol­ogy prac­tice in Cov­ing­ton.

But for the last decade, Der­ma­tol­ogy Con­sul­tants in Cov­ing­ton has been grow­ing with the New­ton County com­mu­nity in big­ger and bet­ter ways. The prac­tice now has three physi­cians and a full-time aes­theti­cian to in­tro­duce pa­tients to the new der­ma­tol­ogy tech­nol­ogy they uti­lize.

“We are al­ways on the cut­ting edge when it comes to the med­i­cal and sur­gi­cal side of der­ma­tol­ogy,” Gooden said. “We of­fer mi­cro­graphic surgery un­like oth­ers, which is used for skin can­cer with the high­est re­cov­ery rate.”

Skin can­cer is one of the com­mon con­di­tions Der­ma­tol­ogy Con­sul­tants of­fer treat­ment for. They also of­fer der­ma­tol­ogy and aes­thetic ser­vices for the treat­ment of acne, rosacea, pso­ri­a­sis and other con­di­tions.

“Our main goal is to help pa­tients get healthy skin,” Gooden con­tin­ued. This means the physi­cians pro­vide treat­ment for pa­tients of all ages with vary­ing con­di­tions.

Gooden said they start with pre­ven­ta­tive mea­sures. This be­gins with sun­block. Af­ter that, Der­ma­tol­ogy Con­sul­tants uses cut­ting-edge tech­nol­ogy to look for ways to turn back time with­out cut­ting, like ex­fo­li­a­tion and a sk­in­care reg­i­men. The re­veal ma­chine takes pho­tos of the pa­tient’s sun spots, spi­der veins and pore size so physi­cians can pro­vide per­son­al­ized care for each pa­tient.

These mea­sures, Gooden said, set the prac­tice apart from spas. Der­ma­tol­ogy Con­sul­tants has a staff of cer­ti­fied spe­cial­ists in der­ma­tol­ogy and cos­me­tol­ogy and re­cently added der­ma­tol­o­gist Dione Mar­cus, MD to its ros­ter of pro­fes­sion­als.

Gooden has been with the com­pany since 1991 and has seen it grow to three prac­tices serv­ing the At­lanta area – Cov­ing­ton, Buckhead and Ma­ri­etta.

For the 10-year an­niver­sary, the Cov­ing­ton lo­ca­tion of­fers 10 per- cent off aes­thetic prod­ucts and ser­vices.

Ulther­apy, one of the new­est aes­thetic ser­vices the prac­tice of­fers, tight­ens and lifts the face, neck and dé­col­leté us­ing ul­tra­sound tech­nol­ogy to treat the skin’s deep sup­port struc­tures.
