Dear #AYA: Looking Your Best All Summer Long

Things have really been heating up at AYA™ Avalon this Summer. First, we’d like to thank everyone who came out to our CoolSculpting® event on July 23rd and for anyone who may have missed it, keep an eye out for other events that we’ve got lined up. It’s been a while since we’ve shared a round of patient asked questions, so we’ve returned to brief you on some excellent products and treatments available at our Avalon location in Alpharetta that will have you looking your best for the rest of the Summer. This week we’re covering three hot treatments: BeautiPHIcation™, Kybella™ fat reduction and Réjuvapen® Micro Needling Scar Revision.

Dear AYA Looking Your Best All Summer LongDear #AYA

For the first time I’ve started noticing wrinkles on my forehead and around my eyes and I am not pleased with this new development. I’ve considered a facelift, but I’m squeamish about any kind surgery and not sure I can go through with it. Got any tips for a gal trying to treat wrinkles and crow’s feet without needing surgery? Thanks.


Seeking Another Path

Dear Seeking Another Path,

We hear you. While certainly effective for many, we understand that a facelift procedure isn’t the right answer for everyone. Thankfully, when it comes to skin care solutions at AYA™, there are a number of potential solutions to choose from.

We are especially excited about the BeautiPHIcation™ method. Using Leonardo Da Vinci’s mathematical principle of beauty and harmony, this method uses a device called a caliper measuring tool to restore symmetry and balance to the face with Botox® or facial filler injections. Each treatment uses the caliper’s precise measurement tool to specify each treatment to the unique needs of every patient. AYA™ injector Mike Kelleher is Georgia’s only cosmetic practitioner to have received direct training from the founder of the BeautiPHIcation™ method and is uniquely qualified to practice this revolutionary technique.


Dear #AYA

I’ve long been bothered by my double chin and have begun seeking solutions. I’m busy raising kids and don’t necessarily have time for a long recovery time after surgery. Is there a specific solution to my double chin that you think could help?


Pressed for Time

Dear Pressed for Time,

You may be in luck. Kybella® fat reduction is a nonsurgical alternative designed to specifically help patients reduce fat below the chin. Kybella® is FDA-approved and known to produce truly excellent, long-lasting results similar to liposuction.

Best of all, Kybella® treatments are quick and temporary side effects are minimal. You may experience swelling, bruising, numbness, stiffness, and/or redness for a brief period after treatment. That means you don’t have to worry about a long recovery time or hospital stay after receiving treatment.


Dear #AYA,

I’ve been looking for a real solution for my acne scars. I’ve tried topical creams and other meds in the past, but have had no success. My friend said she heard micro needling could be a good inexpensive treatment for acne scars. I have indented scars and rough skin texture that I’m desperately trying to correct. Any ideas?


Open to Anything

Dear Open to Anything,

We feel your pain. Acne scarring can make you feel self-conscious. Réjuvapen® micro needling reduces scarring by utilizing multiple microscopic needles to penetrate the surface of the skin.

Réjuvapen® outperforms other dermal roller technology thanks to its narrow hand piece and sterile, disposable needle tips. It is recommended to combine micro needling treatments with skin care products to achieve the best possible results.

We believe the key to a younger, more refreshed look begins with your face. If you have a question that you’d like us to possibly answer in an upcoming Dear #AYA™ blog, we encourage you to connect with AYA™ on Facebook to submit your questions or email us at As always, you’re welcome to come visit any of our Phipps Plaza, Northside or Alpharetta locations for a complimentary consultation and skincare analysis.
