AYA Men’s Guide to a Medical Spa

As highlighted in our blog about the best hair removal method for men, AYA Medical Spa is not just for women. In fact, we’ve noticed a rise in men seeking services, especially in our metro Atlanta locations. Whether it’s for a special occasion like a wedding or just a regular week, men want to look nice, too. We offer a variety of skin care services to meet men’s needs. This blog can be used as a guide for men who aren’t sure where to start on the road to healthier skin.

A skin analysis or one of our complimentary consultations is often a good place to start. During this time our patients share their concerns and skin care goals while our licensed estheticians gather information about their skin to determine the best treatment options. Like all of AYA’s patients, each man visits for a different reason. Those looking for a clearer complexion and restored moisture may be interested in a customized facial. Men enjoy facials because they have little downtime (though some patients experience flushing for up to 24 hours) and because they see results after one treatment. Plus, our facials are highly customizable to treat any skin type and relaxing, too!

Exfoliation helps to remove dead, damaged pore-clogging skin cells to reveal a fresh, healthy complexion. There are multiple exfoliation services at AYA including chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and specialized skin care products. Like our facials, chemical peels are highly customizable and exfoliate the skin by causing the dead outer layers to peel. Chemical peels can treat everything from acne and acne scarring to wrinkles, uneven skin texture and uneven skin tone. Microdermabrasion treatments are slightly different in that they use a handpiece with a crystal- or diamond-encrusted tip to manually exfoliate and vacuum away dead skin cells. Tailored to your skin’s needs, microdermabrasion can remove superficial hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and mild scars while also stimulating collagen production.

Collagen production continues to slow with age, and facial rejuvenation is becoming more and more popular among men. According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more men are receiving minimally invasive treatments like Botox® and Juvéderm® injections, which many reporters in various publications including My Fox Phoenix and ABC news speculate is to preserve their current jobs or find better opportunities in the business world. Besides our cosmetic injectables and facial fillers, we also provide wrinkle reduction, as well as our new ultrasonic skin tightening technology, Ulthera®.

Whether they’re seeking laser hair removal, facial rejuvenation, or CoolSculpting® fat reduction, men don’t have to be shy about their skin care needs.
