During summer with the warm and humid Atlanta temperatures, patients are always concerned about protecting their skin from harmful UV rays and keeping skin hydrated and clean. September 21st marked the first day of fall and the beginning of transitioning our wardrobe and the changing of leaves. As we prepare for the cooler seasons, the licensed and trained providers at AYA™ Medical Spa Avalon in Alpharetta, Phipps Plaza, and Northside also want to remind patients about adjusting their skincare regimen. While some extra steps are necessary to combat the summer heat and cleanse clogged pores caused by sweat or makeup, skincare is important all year-round.
After a long summer spent in the sun, an exfoliating skincare treatment such as a chemical peel or microdermabrasion can slough away dull, dead skin and unclog pores. Chemical peels remove damaged skin cells and promote collagen production to reveal new, healthy skin underneath. Our licensed estheticians offer a variety of peels that can be customized to any skin type. Another option is microdermabrasion which uses a diamond encrusted tip or aluminum oxide crystals to exfoliate skin and generate collagen production and circulation. These facial procedures will not only exfoliate skin but reduces sun spots, acne, the signs of aging, and uneven skin tone. AYA also offers customizable facials to restore moisture to the skin and address individual skin conditions.
One of the most common reminders you always hear during summer is to apply sunscreen and keep reapplying. Even in fall when the sun isn’t as bright or out as long, sunscreen should still be generously applied. The sun’s UV rays are no less damaging and cloudy weather does not reduce exposure or risk of sunburn and photo damage. However, the cooler temperatures and faster winds can cause drier skin. At AYA Medical Spa, our medical grade skincare products include a variety of sunscreens in addition to moisturizers and cleansers to protect your skin. To keep skin hydrated, we offer gentler cleansers that do not strip your skin’s natural oils. Oxygenetix foundation is also a breathable cosmetic line that can protect and conceal post-procedural skin after a rejuvenation treatment.
