AYA™ – a healthy skin experience is owned and operated by Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C., one of the southeast’s oldest and most respected group plastic surgery practices. Founded in 1968, Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C. is renowned as a leader in plastic and reconstructive surgery in the United States. With seven board certified plastic surgeons on staff, the practice has led the region in research, surgical practice and technical expertise.
For more than a decade, Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C. has offered skin restoration treatments at its medical office including laser hair removal and microdermabrasion. While these services have always been available to non-patient consumers, the offering was limited to medical office visits. AYA™’s concept is to make medical-grade services convenient and to enhance the experience with the serenity of a spa atmosphere.
AYA™ offers medically-approved, results-oriented skin-care treatments in a calming spa atmosphere. AYA™ is staffed by highly trained, licensed estheticians and nurses who administer services that combine spa luxury and comfort with medical-grade effectiveness using state of the art equipment. Most services can be performed on men and women of all skin types. These services include cosmetic injection, microdermabrasion, laser hair removal, skin rejuvenation, and more. Consultations are always complimentary.
AYA™ works exclusively with medical grade skin care products such as Obagi® Medical and Revision® Skincare, including the Obagi® Nu-Derm System and the Obagi-C® Rx System. Both systems contain medically prescribed ingredients that work at the cellular level, beyond the skin’s surface. Juvéderm® XC and BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are both available and performed by our nurse injector. With the convenience of two locations: one within the practice near Northside Hospital, and one in Phipps Plaza, AYA™ is able to accommodate anyone’s schedule.
The providers of AYA™ Medical Spa always strive to provide our patients with the very best. This means making sure our staff of technicians, nurse injectors, physicians’ assistants, licensed estheticians and physicians are highly-trained in the many cosmetic laser services we offer. As active members of The American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS), our team is committed to providing our patients the safest and most effective laser treatments while utilizing the top laser treatments available in today’s market.
To keep our patients up-to-date, we wanted to share with you news regarding the new Georgia Cosmetic Laser Services Act that was recently passed by the Georgia Legislature. The State now requires that a professional examination be performed prior to any cosmetic laser treatment (with the exception of laser hair removal):
- 43-34-248. Examine each patient prior to any cosmetic laser service other than hair removal using lasers or pulsed light devices being performed; provided, however, that a consulting physician may delegate the authority to perform such examination to a physician’s assistant who is a licensed cosmetic laser practitioner, in accordance with a job description approved by the board, or to a registered professional nurse who is also an advanced practice registered nurse as defined in paragraph (1.1) of Code Section 43-26-3 and who is a licensed cosmetic laser practitioner, pursuant to a protocol approved by the board; and provided, further, that in facilities subject to the provisions of Code Section 43-34-249.1 such delegation may be to: (A) a physician’s assistant who is not required to be a licensed cosmetic laser practitioner, in accordance with a job description approved by the board; or (B) a registered professional nurse who is also an advanced practice registered nurse who is not required to be a licensed cosmetic laser practitioner, in accordance with a protocol approved by the board;
The purpose of this Act is to make sure that patients are provided cosmetic laser services in a safe, reliable manner by holding providers to a higher standard of care through appropriate licensure, required education and training. While this Act will not affect AYA™ Medical Spa’s dedication to their patients, we just wanted to make current and prospective patients aware of new standards that we will implement in our offices in accordance to the law.
