Dear #AYA: Looking Your Best All Summer Long

August 02, 2016 | Blog

Dear AYA Looking Your Best All Summer LongThings 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 two hot treatments: Kybella fat reduction and SkinPen® Micro Needling Scar Revision.


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. SkinPen® micro needling reduces scarring by utilizing multiple microscopic needles to penetrate the surface of the skin.

SkinPen® 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.
