Developed by Dr. Donna Nunnally,
The Dermatology and Aesthetic Institute (DAI) is an innovative center that combines the science of medical skin care with the art of cosmetic rejuvenation.

At DAI, skin care (prevention, treatment, and repair) is all inclusive. Dermatologists are trained to be skin experts and their education encompasses all ages and the full range of skin conditions. Visits can be a single wart, acne or psoriasis, or something more serious like mole evaluation or skin cancer screening. At these visits, we encourage everyone to discuss all aspects of their skin care concerns. We advise on skin care whether it’s just sunscreen alone, acne treatment or more complicated skin rejuvenation procedures. At DAI, we recommend yearly skin exams and during these visits we customize the skin care regimen best suited for your needs.

We are on most insurance plans for our medical patients.  Our medical dermatology clinic focuses on patients with warts, cysts, rashes, moles, eczema, acne, psoriasis and skin cancer screening and treatment as well as other medical conditions.

Dr. Nunnally is one of the most highly regarded dermatologists in Baton Rouge for her medical practice, but she also focuses on cosmetic rejuvenation.  She is very skilled with injectables such as Botox, Juvederm, Perlane, Sculptra, Restylane, Radiesse, and other fillers. 

We also offer sclerotherapy (leg vein treatment) and photodymic laser therapy for uneven skin tones and surfaces and scars.

Dr. Nunnally appreciates that everyone has choices and when patients choose DAI she feels it’s her professional responsibility to make sure the treatments offered are the best available. Dr. Nunnally and her staff deeply appreciate and value the trust and confidence of our patients. We look forward to working with each of you.

Hand Rejuvenation
Because the skin on the back of the hands is extremely thin, the loss of fat makes the hands look older.
As the hands lose fat, the veins, bones, and tendons become quite prominent.

The natural youthful fat that we’re born with begins to lessen in our late 20’s and early 30’s. By the time we hit 50, our hands will tell the truth about our age, and actually make us feel older.

Sun exposure over decades plays a tremendous role in the “aging hand syndrome”, with increasing numbers of “age spots” and brown patches which continue to appear long after we have learned to stay out of the sun. When we apply sunscreen to our faces, our hands are usually neglected and they get a lot of sun exposure while we are driving in our car. It’s no wonder our hands can prematurely age us.

Radiesse® as volume replacement

Replacing the volume with a dermal filler is not a new thing. Fat transfers have been used to treat volume loss for many years. The staying power of fat is still debatable, and it requires surgical removal from some other part of the body. It is both expensive and time consuming.

Radiesse® is a dense filler made of calcium-based microspheres with an established longevity of 18-24 months. Radiesse® wears well in the hands and provides an instant cushioning replacement. The depressions between the tendons and veins are refilled so both the bone and the veins appear much less prominent giving the hands a softer, fuller more youthful appearance.
Radiesse® is safe, effective, and extremely popular both for its immediate effectiveness and long duration. This is a fast procedure that literally converts older-looking hands to younger looking hands in minutes. The Radiesse® is mixed with lidocaine so it is virtually painless. Once integrated into the skin, the Radiesse® microspheres promote new collagen production which is one of the main reasons it has a long lasting effect.

To rejuvenate the sun damaged skin on the hands, there are many modalities which can be used. The brown discolorations can be treated with liquid nitrogen, Intense Pulsed Light Treatments, chemical peels, bleaching creams, or a combination of the above. Sunscreen must be used on a daily basis to maintain this effect.
