Medical spas have increased in popularity in recent years. According to the latest reports from the International Spa Association, there are 1,750 medical spas across the U.S., up from the reported 471 in 2003. The reasons for growth include added services and expansion from licensed plastic surgeons and dermatologists, a relaxing atmosphere for skincare needs, and patient convenience. However, with the rapid growth of medical spas and reports about unlicensed providers, AYA Medical Spa ensures patients of the highest quality of skincare services performed by our trained and experienced staff of physician assistants, licensed nurses, and estheticians.
Owned and operated by Atlanta Plastic Surgery’s board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeons, AYA provides skincare procedures for patients in a soothing, spa-like environment. Many medical spas have been under the scrutiny of unlicensed doctors performing procedures without related training. The American Board of Medical Specialties specifically recognize certifications in plastic surgery and dermatology but not cosmetic surgery, aesthetics, or anti-aging surgery which are typically common words used by some spas. At AYA Medical Spa, all of our providers from nurse injectors to laser technicians are certified and trained in their field. In addition, our providers are familiar with a variety of skincare products and procedures to recommend treatment plans for each patient’s unique skin type and condition.
Minimally invasive procedures such as cosmetic injectables, chemical peels, and laser skin resurfacing are available for patients who are looking to address minor to moderate skin conditions or improve and maintain plastic surgery results. To help patients maintain a healthy skincare regimen, we offer skincare lines including Obagi®, Revision®, Elta MD®, and many other options. During consultations, we recommend patients ask thorough questions to learn about all of their available rejuvenation options.
Through Atlanta Plastic Surgery, AYA Medical Spa also features the latest technology treatments including CoolSculpting® non-surgical fat reduction, Sciton® laser technology, and skin tightening procedures. CoolSculpting® is an alternative treatment to body contouring surgery as it helps treat unwanted fat on areas such as the abdomen, flanks, back, and thighs without the need for surgery, incisions, scars, or even any downtime. Sciton® provides laser skin resurfacing to address the signs of aging or skin imperfections and can also be used in laser hair removal. ReFirme™ and Ulthera® are two new skin technologies to address loose, drooping skin on the face and neck for a younger, firmer appearance.
