VelaShape™ for Skin Tightening

photo of a female squeezing cellulite skin on her legs | VelaShape | Atlanta areaMany people commonly develop a lumpy, dimpled appearance on certain bodily areas, such as the arms, backs of the thighs, the stomach, or buttocks. These fat cells, called cellulite, lie just beneath the skin and can develop due to various causes. Poor diets, lack of exercise, yo-yo dieting, hormonal changes, or genetics can be the reasons for cellulite development. Cellulite tends to occur more often in women than in men, and the resulting “cottage cheese” look is usually quite undesirable. Exercise, dieting, and other methods generally do not work on reducing cellulite or on tightening the skin back to its original contours.

Skin Tightening Treatment for Cellulite

The only non-invasive, FDA-approved product that helps reduce cellulite and re-contour the body is VelaShape. This device, when administered by your local Atlanta area dermatological laser center, can effectively contour and slim your body lines by diminishing pockets of fat and firming up those problem areas. With in-office sessions that allow you to receive treatment and immediately return to work or to your regular daily activities with no downtime, VelaShape provides you with dramatic results for newly toned skin.

How Does VelaShape Work?

The VelaShape device works using an infrared laser, bipolar radio frequency energy and mechanical tissue manipulation (suctioning and massage rollers) technologies. The treatment operates to apply deep heat to the fat cells, their nearby connective tissues, and dermal collagen fibers. The heating, massaging, and suctioning work to stimulate new collagen and elastin growth, resulting in tightened skin, increased volume, and better skin structure and texture. The skin’s surface will be smoothed and the appearance of cellulite noticeably reduced. The treated area will also be reshaped, with an obvious reduction in size.

The Treatment Experience

Skin tightening and cellulite reduction with VelaShape is as comfortable as getting a warm, deep-tissue massage in a medical spa. If you are finding that the treatment is becoming uncomfortable at all, the parameters can be adjusted with ease. For a few hours after your treatment, the warmth you’ve experienced will remain with you, perhaps accompanied by a slightly pink appearance in the area treated.

Jean Chapman M.D. at LaserMed Skin & Vein Clinic offers VelaShape treatments for their patients who are seeking cellulite reduction and/or skin tightening and contouring. Jean Chapman M.D. can determine if you are a good candidate for VelaShape or whether another option for skin tightening would better suit your needs. The LaserMed Skin & Vein Clinic, located in Johns Creek, Atlanta, is proud to serve the surrounding areas of Alpharetta, Milton, Roswell, and Cumming.

Micro Needling RF for Tightening & Rejuvenating the Face

photo of senior woman sitting outdoors | LaserMedMicro needling RF is one of the most successful collagen inductions on the market. It is an all-inclusive Micro needling technique that adds radiofrequency for optimum results. In fact, when these two outstanding techniques are combined it gives your skin the boost it needs.

Reduces Wrinkles and Fine Lines

Micro needling RF is most known for its ability to reduce winkles and fine lines. Not only does it include treatment for skin laxity but it also helps you achieve skin tightness. Other wrinkle treatments consist of skin tightening, textural changes and facial dermal volumizing.

Skin Contouring

Micro needling RF is also wonderful in skin contouring and reformation. For instance, it helps tighten the tissue of the skin and produces new collagen to make your skin look younger. In addition, the collagen helps clear blemishes.

Improves Scars and Blemishes

Micro needling RF is one of the most often used techniques for treating blemishes and scars caused by trauma and acne. It is a non-surgical treatment that can easily be performed in an office. As well, according to the Prime Journal it is a safe procedure for all skin phototypes. In addition, it is a lot more cost effective; the procedure is much simpler than other techniques and has minimal downtown.

And unlike many other techniques, Micro needling RF can be used on sensitive areas such as near the eyes. Plus, with Micro needling RF there are no demarcation lines formed between untreated and treated skin which is common with other resurfacing procedures. This means that there is no need to feather the whole face like other treatments. In fact, specific areas that are scarred can easily be treated.

Another great benefit of Micro needling RF is that there is no risk of photosensitivity which is often the case in many types of scar treatments. As well, there is no post-inflammatory dyschromia.

Side Effects

Micro needling RF side effects are very mild which makes downtime treatment very minimal. As well, many patients resume their normal activities within a day. Some of the side effects include slightly red or mild pinpoint bleeding with patients who have very vascular skin. Generally this condition only lasts for about 24 hours. As well, the skin may feel a little like sandpaper for 2-3 days.

UltraShape Power – Fat Reduction that Really Works!

logo for UltraShape Power | Dr. Jean Chapman | LaserMedUltraShape Power – a new fat reduction that is renowned as the latest technique to really work. Conferring to a post on Jul 18, 2016 from PR Newswire, UltraShape Power makes evident a 32% decrease in abdominal fat layer thickness and delivers a 20% increase in Acoustic Energy. Moreover, PR Newswire announces that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave clearance for UltraShape Power, a non-invasive fat destruction device.

What is UltraShape Power?

UltraShape Power is a non-invasive treatment that is FDA approved to permanently destroy fat. It is the only treatment that can be customized to fit exclusive conditions for specific body areas regardless of fat thickness. Moreover, it is known as a special method that delivers results in only 12 weeks!

The technology behind this exciting device utilizes pulsed, focused ultrasound. This specialized ultrasound is programmed to selectively destroy fat cells without using the obvious drawbacks of numbing, freezing or heating. Further, the pain factor is said to be 0.07 / painless on a scale of 1-10.

Smiling elderly woman working out | Laser MedHow it Works

Basically, the advanced dynamics utilize swiftly changing pressure waves that generate vapor cavities in the body’s fat cells. The intensity of the rapid movement puts stress on the fat cell membranes, making them to rupture. In the meantime, all nerves, connective tissues, blood vessels and surround skin are unharmed.

The method has the immediate ability to destroy and reduce fat in a uniform way without any heat or cold sensations or pain. As well, there are no lasting indentations or grooves.

Particular Facts

UltraShape Power has a wide variety of benefits including the use of non-invasive methods for reducing fat cells. And by releasing waves of ultrasonic energy, UltraShape Power can target specific areas of unwanted fat. These numerous advantages for contouring the body include:

Marginal Risk

Since UltraShape Power is a nonsurgical and noninvasive treatment, there is a marginal risk of complications. In fact, there is no swelling, bruising, surgical scars or anesthesia.

Only Selective Target Fat Cells

With the use of controlled ultrasound waves, specific fat layers underneath the epidermis can be selected. This is the ideal location for body sculpting because it is where fat is stored. Moreover, there is no damage around the muscle, skin or tissues since UltraShape Power utilizes non-thermal energy to get rid of fat cells.

Results are Long Lasting

UltraShape Power is designed to be long lasting. In fact, the fat cells that have been destroyed cannot return. In addition, patients generally see immediate results with minimal downtime. In truth, the procedure is rather quick and stress-free. Remarkably, patients can easily walk in and have the procedure and then leave without bandages, anesthesia or post-operative care.

And for even better results, patients are advised to maintain their present weight by getting plenty of exercise and eating healthy.


At LaserMed Skin & Vein Clinic, Dr. Jean Chapman, M.D. is dedicated to providing the utmost quality service and personal care. Not only is Dr. Chapman experienced in performing the latest techniques with many successful treatments but she constantly strives to advance in all aspects in modern aesthetic medicine. For instance, Dr. Chapman, M.D. has been recognized for more than 19 academic achievements, is currently active in various recognized societies in medicine and has finished more than 20 continual medical education activities.

• Principal Investigator for Dysport FDA study

UltraShape Power for Ultimate Body Contouring

ultrashape-power-blogDo you have this dilemma? You feel strong and fit in your body. You work out regularly with cardio and strength exercises, make healthy food choices, moderate your caffeine and alcohol intake, maybe even meditate or enjoy yoga. You’ve never really paid much attention to your actual weight, because you believed that your healthy lifestyle would result in the body you wanted, and usually your reflection in the mirror supported that.

Then one day, a slinky dress that hasn’t seen the outside of your closet for many months feels a little snug before a special event. You could blame it on hormones, too much salt, intestinal bloat, even on your washing machine. Maybe you had gotten used to wearing loose tunic tops and swingy dresses, or won’t leave the house without your compression shapewear. You didn’t realize that your fitted clothes weren’t fitting right, you simply were relying on other alternatives to accommodate your changing body. What you might not have considered is that all that healthy living may still not result in where and how any excess fat may decide to locate. For some, fat distribution is not equal, especially as we age and our hormones change. Your response – more exercise, eliminating certain food groups, abstaining from that glass of wine with dinner, drinking copious amounts of water. And as you might notice a difference in your arms, legs, chest and maybe derriere, weeks later that tummy pouch, bra back bulge or donut around your middle is still there. Those are the subcutaneous fat pockets that exercise and diet alone can’t tackle.

And that’s where UltraShape Power shines. UltraShape Power enables fully customizable treatments to meet the unique needs of all of our patients and delivers up to 32% permanent fat reduction. The new UltraShape Power reduces the fat layer thickness targeting the stubborn fat that even diet & exercise fail to eliminate. It uses pulsed and targeted ultrasound technology to target and instantly destroy fat cells safely and comfortably, leaving surrounding nerves, blood vessels and tissue protected. Three half hour treatments, spaced two weeks apart, deliver significant results. No incisions required, and the procedure does not require any type of anesthesia. Because the typical side effects associated with other body contouring methods, notably bruising and soreness, are not experienced, you can return to normal activities right away. The basic requirements after treatment are to drink lots of water, eat healthy, and continue to exercise.

Common Treatment Areas

Problem areas can occur on many different areas of the body, but most people suffer from stubborn fat in the most common areas of fat retention. UltraShape Power excels when treating the following areas:

  • Stomach
  • Hips/love handles
  • inner and outer thighs
  • Bra line
  • Knee fat pads

After the prescribed number of treatments, often within 2 weeks of the initial treatment, results become evident. Many patients report a loss of two to three inches in the treated area, which can result in the patient dropping one to two sizes. Following the destruction of localized fat cells, fat pockets in the treated areas should be greatly reduced. And because the fat is destroyed in a controlled, subtle manner, the skin naturally retracts rather than becoming saggy.

Are Results Permanent?

UltraShape Power is a permanent fat reduction method given that impacted fat cells do not grow back. However, that does not mean you can give up the healthy lifestyle, as the remaining non-ruptured cells can still expand, causing weight gain. And, we stress that it is not realistic for our patients to expect miracles. UltraShape Power is most effective when used as a spot treatment for hard to lose areas, not as a substitute for overall weight loss. Commitment to maintenance of your sleeker profile is key to success. It might just be time to give those compression undergarments a vacation!

LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic is located in Johns Creek and serves the Atlanta area including Alpharetta, Milton, Duluth, Norcross, Roswell, Cumming, and beyond. Call or email to schedule an appointment or ask any questions you may have about the new UltraShape Power. Or attend our monthly Open House for a discussion with Dr. Chapman about how this procedure can benefit you.

Fall is a Great Time for Fractional Laser Resurfacing

What is Fractional Laser Resurfacing?

photo of an attractive senior woman | Laser Med Skin and Vein Clinic At first glance, Fractional Laser Resurfacing sounds like something out of science fiction: using lasers to encourage skin healing to erase lesions, discolorations, and wrinkles. But the technique is actually well studied and has been in use for several years. Essentially the therapy consists of a laser firing in short bursts at the problem areas of the skin: wrinkles, age lines, and other unwanted features. After the treatment finishes, the skin itself then works its magic, healing the areas that the laser resurfaced, culminating in much smoother and cleaner skin.

The DOT therapy, as performed by Dr. Jean Chapman, MD, adds additional advantages over a traditional laser resurfacing that are numerous. While in traditional therapies it can take several weeks for the skin to heal after the procedure, and can result in discomfort and even mild bleeding in the affected areas, DOT therapy is a far more accurate and narrowly tailored procedure. Rather than covering the whole affected area with laser energy, the DOT therapy instead fires in a very limited pattern, focused on the problem areas themselves, resulting in a quicker recovery time of mere days, minimal discomfort, and best of all, very accurate results. But why try it out this autumn?

Why Fall?

Now is a perfect time to consider a Fractional Laser Resurfacing procedure at LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic. Many of the skin blemishes and wrinkles in our faces occur due to the intense heat and UV damage caused by the bright summer sun. The increased hours of daylight, coupled with the beautiful weather that makes outdoor activities far more likely, means that your skin has had to deal with a lot for the past three or four months. As temperatures cool off and we begin to prepare for the winter ahead, it is the perfect time to try out this exciting laser therapy procedure, helping the skin to repair itself and erase many of the signs of the damage that occurred this year.

As autumn begins, now is a perfect time to consider fractional laser resurfacing. Dr. Jean Chapman, MD would be happy to discuss the procedure with you, or to discuss any number of other skin rejuvenation options.

What is Ultherapy?

Portrait of mature smiling blond woman | LaserMedAging skin is inevitable, both gravity and time plays its toll. However, many specialists declare that you can correct aging skin to a more youthful appearance with Ultherapy. In fact, this procedure is said to lift the skin for renewed appearance without undergoing surgery.

What is Ultherapy?

According to Derma Network, Ultherapy is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure developed to reduce various signs of aging such as wrinkles, sagging skin and fine lines. The procedure involves working below the surface of the skin. And unlike other procedures, it does not damage the outer layer. Instead, the skin is tightened, much firmer and lifted with the use of ultrasound technology.

The utilization of ultrasound also allows a physician to see the layers of skin. This confirms that the vitality is distributed to where it will have the largest impact.

How it Works

Ultherapy works by making use of ultrasound. It generates images of the inner layers of the skin plus it shoots “life giving” heat into those layers. As it happens, it is the heat that actually creates new collagen within the layers. And it is the collagen that firms and tightens the skin.

Areas of the Body That Can be Treated

For the most part, the procedure is used to treat facial and upper neck aging. As well, it can be used for specific areas such as the jaw line, lower or upper face, neck or forehead. As well, treatment can be safely used on the whole area.


Compared to other nonsurgical cosmetic procedures, Ultherapy is safer and is more precise leading to much better results. This is because it utilizes ultrasound technology to make images and treat the skin. What is more, when compared to having traditional facelift surgery, Ultherapy has far less down time.

Who Should Consider the Procedure?

Good candidates for the procedure are people who have skin that is less firm or sagging. However, it is best to consult a doctor to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.

One of the most renowned clinics in the Atlanta area is LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic. The leading physician, Dr. Jean Chapman, specializes in aesthetic medicine and has extensive experience in sclerotherapy, medical laser systems, in-office vascular surgery, effective topical agents and chemical peels. Dr. Chapman is highly proficient at treating patients in the area of facial rejuvenation, rosacea, spider and varicose veins, wrinkles, tattoo removal and hair removal, scar remodeling, melasma and sun damage.

What is more, Dr. Jean Chapman (at the LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic) has been practicing for numerous years. What is more, her recognition is immense, such as on the Speaker’s Bureau for Medicis Dysport and Fillers, on faculty for Medicis for Hands-On instructor programs and much more.


After Ultherapy treatment, patients are generally able to continue normal daily activities. In fact, there are no specific instructions that need to be used during recovery. However, some people experience a slight bit of redness. But the mild redness generally disappears within a few hours. As well, a little tenderness under the area is normal.

Medical Advice

Please note that this article is not intended to replace any sort of medical advice. If you have any questions or concerns about Ultherapy procedures or recovery, consult Dr. Chapman or other specialist immediately.

Beauty is a Giving Heart



She came to me many years ago to discuss treatments for her leg veins and some facial procedures. I believe it was about 10 years ago. She is a fair-skinned, true blond hair, blue eyed beauty and received sclerotherapy on several visits at LaserMed. Then I found out she was a nurse. A registered nurse.

At the time I didn’t have a registered nurse at the clinic. I had a LPN, medical esthetician and a medical assistant. I thought it would be a great idea to add her as the LPN didn’t work out for us. She was a hard-working, smart nurse from day 1. Well-rounded and got along with coworkers well, but was exceptionally kind and accommodating to patients and they loved her. When it was time to be tough and strong, she was not a layer short of a true New Yorker which she was.

Her tricks from under her sleeves didn’t stop there. She is an amazing baker who brought cookies to work regularly and baked anywhere from beautiful to obscene cakes for staff birthdays. My husband offended his own mom by saying this nurse’s chocolate chip cookies were better than hers! She’s been baking for me loaves of Hungarian salt bread and egg bread along with her famous cookies every Christmas. A couple of times she even sewed warm blankets for my boys.

This woman is an amazing mom to 3 sons and grandma of 5 grandchildren today. She is still working at my clinic 10 years later! Lucky me!!

For those 10 years, she has been treated regularly with Botox, fillers, Sculptra, lasers, Ultherapy, sclerotherapy and RF needling. She has always protected her skin with zinc oxide containing broad spectrum physical sunscreen and has used awesome effective age-defying products such as SkinCeuticals vitamin C phloretin, and bioserum. No doubt, without going under the knife, she looks amazing!! Her skin is clear and radiant; she has no wrinkles, but exhibits natural facial expressions. She doesn’t have to worry about visible laxity either. What a joy it has been to work with her over a decade and watch her be so ahead of the game in this aging process!

What is the cherry on top though?

It is her inside beauty of a giving heart shining through on the outside that makes this natural beauty glow even more. A beautiful heart that gives never burns down. It keeps going strong, brilliant and radiant.

Facelift & Necklift with No Surgery – Ultherapy

photo of an older woman smiling | Dr. Jean Chapman As you age, gravity, time and exposure to the sun tend to take over your youthful appearance. Certain areas of your skin naturally begin to sag, showing your age in your facial structure and on your neck. The jawline loses its tightness and the neck area develops lines and loses tone. In the past, the answer to recovering a more youthful look was to undergo a surgical facelift or necklift procedure.

The Ultherapy Lift has changed the way you can now lift your skin for a revitalized appearance without surgery. Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that is FDA-cleared to lift the neck’s skin and facial skin for the smoothing of lines and wrinkles. Ultherapy can also be used to lift skin beneath sagging eyebrows, under the chin, and on the décolletage area of the breasts.

With Ultherapy treatment, ultrasound energy is used to tighten and uplift the skin in a more natural way, without the downtime necessary for an invasive procedure. In fact, Ultherapy is the sole non-invasive, FDA-cleared procedure to lift neck, chin and eyebrow skin. Ultrasound has been used for more than 50 years, safely, in the field of medicine. Over 500,000 clinical study treatments have proven this ultrasound therapy to be safe and effective the world over.

This therapy will lift the skin in a gradual and natural way so as not to appear too suddenly and drastically transformed. The results are long-lasting and over time, improved lifting and firmness are achieved. It works by stimulating the skin’s collagen production via ultrasound energy delivered to deep dermal layers, with no incisions or disturbance of the skin’s outer surface. There are no needles involved and no toxic substances. The energy of the ultrasound triggers the skin to respond by producing fresh collagen, a natural substance needed for skin plumping and wrinkle smoothing.

Right after your first Ultherapy treatment, you will see positive effects, but the treatment continues to work over time. Within two or three months, new collagen keeps working to lift and firm skin on the face and neck.

Laser Med Skin & Vein Clinic is the premiere provider of this therapy in the Atlanta area. This advanced medical and skin care clinic is located in Johns Creek and serves the Atlanta area, including Alpharetta, Milton, Roswell and Cumming.

Laser Med Skin & Vein Clinic provides Ultherapy services for face, neck, décolletage and eyebrows. They also offer a wide range of medical and cosmetic procedures, such as liposuction, injectables, laser procedures and much more. Please contact a staff member at Laser Med Skin & Vein Clinic with any questions you may have concerning Ultherapy or other skin and vein treatments.

A Message About Faithfulness

I have been lucky enough to have most of my staff to work with me at LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic for ten to twelve years, which is a very long time! Wow, how do I deserve to have these wonderful ladies stay with me so long? One sweet, kind lady who has been my go-to staffer for twelve years may as well change her middle name to “faithful”. I am utterly blessed to have three ladies that have worked with me for over a decade and three more newer staff members with whom I wish would stay with me for that long as well.Beautiful orchid flower banner

Is faithful a word used to describe you?

I am married to one whom I would use “faithful” as one of the top three words to describe him. He is also loving, kind, reliable, and helpful. I am so thankful and blessed that we’ve been married for 18 years! I also have friends who are faithful and enduring and I can go visit them nearby as well as all over the world and still pick up right where we left off. They are my friends who will be my friends forever. What would you say if I tell you I am also blessed with having faithful patients? Too good to be true, isn’t it?

One of my patients who is still a regular was one of my first patients from 2002 from when I first started seeing patients out of a friend’s office before mine was open. She is an amazing communicator and a well-spoken career woman who also devotes her time to helping those in need in her community. I would dare to say she looks about the same as she did fourteen years ago! She is living proof that keeping the ideal body weight consistently throughout life is one of the major secrets to looking tight and young even in the face! I appreciate all the ladies and gentlemen who have allowed me to serve them all these years as well as those who have returned to continue our journey together again.

In any situation, faithfulness is an essential ingredient for all types of successful and happy relationships. I value patients who allow me to tweak and modify my esthetic treatment plans for them as we age together. As their inevitable aging factors come to the table, I know what I need to do so much better because I have seen them regularly over the years. I remember and I also have the pictures of what they used to look like and know what I need to do to keep them looking as naturally improved as possible and still look like themselves.

Faithfulness pays off after all. Would you like to become one of my cherished patients? Contact us at our beautiful office in Johns Creek, serving patients from the communities of Alpharetta, Sandy Springs, Cumming, Suwanee, Roswell and Johns Creek, as well as patients from all over the Atlanta Metro area and beyond.

Tired of Hiding Ugly Spider Veins?

Summer is when we see “short” everywhere – short dresses, short skirts, short shorts and way up to there swim suits. Short is in the stores, on websites, on advertisements, in magazines, on TV and on people everywhere! And what if you are so self-conscious of the veins on your legs that you feel you just can’t participate in the “short” trend? Dr. Jean Chapman, Owner/Founder of LaserMed Skin & Vein Clinic puts the spotlight on a very popular and successful treatment in her practice known as sclerotherapy.

What is Sclerotherapy?

Treat Unsightly Varicose Veins During the Winter for Beautiful Legs Come Spring

Treat Unsightly Varicose Veins for Beautiful Legs

Sclerotherapy is an FDA approved popular hardening solution that is injected directly into the purple spider or feeder blue veins to close them. In a couple of weeks or less, those veins are disposed and gone. Different types of solutions may still be used at other practices, but they cause more discomfort and less success. Superficial lasers are helpful at times, typically on smaller facial veins, but overall sclerotherapy is the most effective and least painful treatment with the least amount of side effects. There are so many places that advertise that they treat spider veins. Be sure you have selected the best vein doctor to take care of your vein removal.

Tips for Selecting a Vein Doctor

The American College of Phlebology or ACP is the official governing organization that oversees the vein specialty. Board certified phlebologists are recognized vein specialists who are sub-specialized in the treatment of any veins, both superficial and deep, in the body. With this specific training and certification, Dr. Chapman understands and diagnoses superficial cosmetic issues as well as deep medical vein issues and is able to treat all by using lasers, injections, minor surgeries and other modalities. That’s why you should select Dr. Chapman as your vein specialist over the other specialists that only treat superficial veins with either lasers or simple injections.

How Do I Know if Sclerotherapy is Right for Me?

Dr. Chapman, a board certified vein specialist, will examine and diagnose your vein condition with duplex ultrasound to decide if simple sclerotherapy is what you need. In many cases only a single sclerotherapy treatment may be sufficient, although typically a series of treatments are recommended for ultimate results. However, if reflux in present in the veins causing venus insufficiency then endovenous laser ablation treatment (EVLT) or a phlebectomy may be indicated.
