Now you can minimize wrinkles, scars, sun damage and active acne without the pain and recuperative time of other cosmetic treatments. Microdermabrasion in Atlanta, Georgia is the most natural way to evenly and safely exfoliate the skin without chemicals to provide a more youthful appearance. It is one of the most requested non-invasive cosmetic procedures, and can be customized to meet your specific skin care needs. Crystals or a diamond encrusted tip are used to massage and exfoliate the skin’s surface to remove superficial hyperpigmentation, fine lines, sun damage, and mild scars while stimulating circulation and collagen production.
Microdermabrasion can be used on all skin types, and is a suitable facial treatment for anyone interested in minimizing the appearance of the skin blemishes mentioned above. You may initially feel a very light scratching sensation as the massaging crystals or diamond encrusted tip make contact with the skin, but continued treatment compares to a deep massage. Mild redness may occur for ½ an hour to one day after treatment depending on the aggressiveness of the program.
Microdermabrasion Options at AYA
The DiamondTome™ Wand removes dead skin by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips, while also vacuuming the dead skin cells away in a sterile and controlled manner. Removing this outer layer of dead skin cells leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells.
DiamondTome™ microdermabrasion can be used to remove dead, dull skin cells from the surface of the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands of both men and women. DiamondTome™ exfoliation is said to be gentler than other varieties of microdermabrasion, and is therefore ideal not only for the face, but the sensitive skin on the backs of hands and the neck. The number of DiamondTome™ treatments needed will be determined after your cosmetic consultation with one of AYA’s licensed estheticians.
MegaPeel® Platinum microdermabrasion utilizes crystals to resurface superficial layers of the skin. When a more aggressive treatment is necessary, vacuum pressure can be increased to evenly penetrate deeper layers of the skin. With MegaPeel®’s advanced technology, you can receive customized microdermabrasion treatments to suit your specific skincare needs.
AYA’s MegaPeel® Platinum equipment provides a deeper exfoliation to treat more severe topical conditions such as moderate acne scarring and wrinkling. To schedule a cosmetic consultation contact one of the licensed estheticians at AYA Medical Spa.
Who is a good candidate for microdermabrasion?

What microdermabrasion treatment is best for me?
AYA Medical Spa offers DiamondTome™ and MegaPeel® Platinum microdermabrasion. While only a proper consultation can dictate which microdermabrasion method will meet your specific skin issue(s), most patients with mild skin conditions benefit more from the DiamondTome™ treatment while those with more severe symptoms see better results with MegaPeel® treatment.
Are microdermabrasion treatments uncomfortable?
Slight discomfort may occur at the beginning of your microdermabrasion treatment as the crystals begin to exfoliate your skin, but treatments are far from uncomfortable.
How will I look after my microderm treatment?
Immediately after treatment, your skin will probably appear flushed as a result of the mechanical stimulation and increased circulation to the skin. Any redness should subside shortly after treatment. However, patients who need a more aggressive program may experience redness for up to a day following treatment. Once the skin calms, it will appear rejuvenated and more youthful.
