Medical Spa Services
At Buckhead Plastic Surgery, Atlanta
Buckhead Plastic Surgery and its full-service medical spa offer an array of non-surgical services to optimize skin health and tone. These services are often a complement to surgery, helping to prepare the skin for surgery or to enhance and prolong the results achieved in the operating room.
Skin care consultations and evaluations are performed by Lisa Boger, our licensed medical aesthetician, to determine which combination of procedures and skin care products may best meet patient needs. Services offered include:
- Laser Hair Removal
- Laser Photofacial RF™
- Laser Vein Treatments
- Chemical Peels
Our chemical peels remove the superficial layers of skin, leaving fresh, renewed skin undamaged by the sun. The process also stimulates the production of new collagen for smoother skin texture. A chemical peel can improve fine lines and skin discoloration caused by the sun. It may also help control acne.
Buckhead Plastic Surgery offers several types of chemical peels. Our aesthetician will evaluate your skin to determine which type is best for you. Chemical peels range from superficial with almost no downtime to deeper peels that may require eight to 10 days for recovery. Redness and flaking skin may be present for a few days after your peel. Our aestheticians can recommend skin care products and makeup to use immediately after your peel as well as long term to maintain results. Please see Chemical Peels - Obagi Peel Procedure Details.
Our specialty facials are designed to invigorate your skin in a calm, relaxed setting. A facial can slough old skin cells and superficial debris and restore skin glow. There is no associated downtime and facials can be safely used on all skin colors and types. Our aesthetician will examine your skin to determine which type of facial will yield the best individual results.
Microdermabrasion is designed to create smoother, healthier skin. It relies on tiny crystals that gently abrade and polish the skin to remove damaged and flaking skin cells and uncover the silky new skin beneath the surface. The process will stimulate circulation as well as production of new skin cells and collagen.
The treatments take between 30-60 minutes. You can return to normal everyday activity immediately after. Multiple treatments are necessary to see improvement in skin imperfections, followed by less frequent maintenance visits. Treatments are usually spaced two to three weeks apart. Please see Microdermabrasion Procedure Details.
Sun and the natural aging process cause cumulative damage to the skin, resulting in imperfections such as sunspots, rosacea, and spider veins. Laser Photofacial RF™ is an effective way to treat these conditions with the added benefit of no downtime. The laser emits light which is absorbed by the pigment in sunspots and blood vessels.
The light is converted to heat which dissolves the pigmented cells and shrinks the blood vessels. After a series of treatments, there will be a clearing of discoloration, rosacea and vessels, creating a more smooth and even appearance to the skin. Typical treatment areas include the face, arms, chest, back and legs.
Laser Hair Removal
Our on-site lasers can permanently reduce or remove unwanted hair which is problematic for both men and women. The laser beam damages the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin. It can be used on small areas such as chin or upper lip, larger areas like an underarm or bikini region, or even sizable surfaces such as a leg or back.
The duration of your individual treatment will depend on the area being treated. Typically several sessions are necessary to capture a large portion of the hair follicles at various growth stages. A slight stinging sensation may be experienced during the treatment but you may return to work and other daily activities immediately following treatment.
Laser Vein Removal
Our array of lasers can permanently reduce or remove unwanted leg veins. Problematic small veins on the lower extremity or face can often be treated using a laser vein that heats the vessel wall, damaging it and causing the vein to heal up. These laser treatments may be in addition to sclerotherapy performed by Dr. Alan N. Larsen. Sclerotherapy is used to remove larger and more numerous veins.
