Dermatology Associates of Atlanta also carries over 100 skin care products which can be purchased in person or by phone for your convenience. Peruse our menu of services below or contact one of our qualified aestheticians to determine which spa treatment is best for you.
Microdermabrasion utilizes the power of manual and instrument-assisted exfoliation to purify your skin of dead, pore-clogging skin cells. The massage-like topical treatments are also effective in stimulating circulation and collagen production of the treated area to reveal brightened, more youthful looking skin of the face and body.
The DiamondTome wand, made of natural diamond chips, gently exfoliates the skin while light suction is used to remove dead skin to reveal brightened, tighter skin. The DiamondTome technology provides a, gentle option for individuals seeking to minimize minor to moderate signs of aging and sun damage.
Starting at 30 minutes
Microdermabrasion has long been a staple of skin care, helping patients with acne, early signs of aging, and more by exfoliating away damaged surface skin and paving the way for new, refreshed, and more youthful skin to break through. SilkPeel® takes this tried-and-true method and makes it even more effective with their unique process called Dermalinfusion®. At the same time that it uses gentle suction to exfoliate, SilkPeel® applies an advanced topical solution, tailored to the skin concerns you want to address. The result is a brighter, clearer, and more youthful complexion after just one session, though best results are typically achieved after a series of treatments. The procedure is ideal for patients who want to manage acne, reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, or simply give their skin a rejuvenated glow, and it’s a perfect way to prepare for a special occasion.
Peels are an effective instrument in revealing the beautiful skin that often lies just below the surface. Chemical peel ingredients vary in strength and can be adjusted to address your specific requirements. Skin Medics™ Medical Spa offers a variety of peels with natural ingredients for general brightening and more concentrated chemical combinations for a deeper peel, including:
- The Perfect Derma™ Peel
- PCA Peels by PCA SKIN®
- TCA Peel (10% or 25%)
- NeoStrata® ProSystem Retinol Peel
- Baby Foot™ Home Peel
- Hand Peel
*All Skin Medics™ Medical Spa Peels include an optional extraction of pore debris.
CoolSculpting® Non-Invasive Fat Reduction
No matter how much time you spend at the gym, you can’t choose which fat cells your body eliminates, so even people with perfectly healthy body weights can have areas of unwanted excess fat. For those who aren’t crazy about the idea of liposuction, CoolSculpting® fat reduction offers a non-invasive alternative. Patients simply rest comfortably while the procedure applies controlled cooling to the treatment area, which damages the fat cells while leaving other tissue unharmed. As your body naturally eliminates the damaged fat cells throughout the next several weeks, you’ll see a slimmer look with up to 18% of fat removed from the area. CoolSculpting® is available for the abdomen, flanks, thighs, back, chest, and even the “double chin,” and because DAA is one of the only facilities to have TriCool™ with three CoolSculpting® machines, we can offer shorter treatment times and more convenient scheduling.
Exfoliating (removing the dead and damaged skin cells from the surface) can be a highly effective way to restore smoother, more youthful skin, and dermaplaning is one of many options. During this treatment, our skillful aestheticians use a precise instrument to manually exfoliate the skin while also removing any vellus hairs (or “peach fuzz”), leaving skin smooth and refreshed. Depending on your unique needs, we offer basic dermaplaning as well as anti-aging dermaplaning and deluxe dermaplaning.
Réjuvapen® Micro Needling (with or without natural growth factors)
Micro needling is a popular way to improve the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles while giving your skin and overall brighter and more youthful appearance. Using a refined technique, Réjuvapen® micro needling uses ultrafine needles to help your skin produce more collagen, a protein that gives young skin its smooth texture and firmness. For even stronger results, we can use the growth factors from your own blood, which contains growth factors that stimulate collagen production.
Emsculpt® Body Contouring (coming soon)
We are thrilled to be among the first practices to offer this innovative new non-surgical body contouring procedure. Emsculpt® uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate targeted muscles, which enhances muscle tone, while also reducing excess fat in the area.
In addition to long-term hair removal methods like laser hair removal and electrolysis, our experienced professionals also offer brow waxing for your short-term cosmetic needs.
