Whether relaxing, deeply purifying, or medically targeted, facials can be an amazing part of your self-care. Trust your face and skin to an expert aesthetician with over 30 years of medical skincare and skin health experience. With our expert staff’s global outlook of wellness and beauty, your face and skin are in the best hands!
A facial is many things — a series of skincare treatments to cleanse, purify, and exfoliate the skin; a way to check in with your medical skincare provider; and a soothing, relaxing way to recharge.
At Aviva Plastic Surgery, facials come in many flavors in varieties. Our medical esthetician and skincare guru Alla Fishman works alongside Facial Plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman to design your customized skincare program, and develop a treatment plan which incorporates bespoke medical-grade skincare with treatments to address hyperpigmentation, sun damage, skin texture concerns, and highlight anti-aging and prevention procedures to help you look and feel your most vibrant and best. Depending on your skin’s health and treatment goals, your facials can focus on calming inflammation and redness, treating and preventing acne, stimulating collagen and preventing aging and sun damage.
We encourage you to discuss your skin concerns and aesthetic and wellness goals with our expert staff, and then allow us to select the type of facial, treatments, facial masks, and chemical peels best for you. This is the best way to reap the greatest benefits from your facials!
Confidence in appearance and healthy function helps our patients look and feel their best every day, and this feeling extends to our patients’ professional and personal lives. The benefits of medical facials include:
Alla Fishman is a licensed medical esthetician with over 30 years experience in the skincare and aesthetics industry. She cares for some of Atlanta’s most well-known faces, and is called “the skin guru” and “the face whisperer” by her devoted and longstanding patients.
Extensively trained in classic European facial and skincare standards, Alla has developed a global outlook on skin health and beauty during her career. Her expertise shines in analyzing your skin to determine its health and skincare needs, and creating a bespoke and customized skincare and skin treatment program. She incorporates time-tested treatments with the latest skincare and technology to give you the greatest benefits of a medical-grade skincare program; your most vibrant and healthy skin; and the opportunity to feel empowered to make the informed decisions for your best skin and put your best face forward.
Outside of sharing her skincare expertise, Alla enjoys spending time with her family, crafting and making jewelry, cooking, and gardening.
You should expect an overall soothing and refreshing experience. After checking in to our office, you are led to our aesthetician’s treatment room, where you are asked to change into a facial gown, exposing your neck, shoulders, and décolletage. Alla, our medial aesthetician, also covers your hair with a bouffant-style cap or headband.
Even though the types of facials vary, and may feature additional treatments, most facials feature skin cleansing, exfoliation, and soothing moisturization. Your facial begins with gentle cleansing, to remove makeup, skincare products, and skin oils. A light steaming commonly follows this, in order to open the skin’s pores. You may experience skin exfoliation in the form of a chemical or mechanical scrub, or with the help of an ultrasonic pore extractor. Depending on your skin’s pore congestion, you may undergo mechanical pore extraction as well. After this thorough cleansing, you will have a soothing and moisturizing treatment in the form of a collagen blanket or soothing facial mask. A significant part of your facial is Alla’s skin analysis, during which she evaluates your skin’s health, response to treatments, and treatment needs. You should expect your facial to feel not only soothing but re-energizing; it is remarkable how powerful the human touch is, and the addition of a gently warmed bed and relaxing music make for an amazingly soothing and centering experience.
Finally, while a facial may be a standalone treatment, it can also be combined with:
A facial is an excellent way to meet your esthetician and skincare expert, analyze your skin and its individual needs, and to develop a tailored treatment plan. During your facial, you should expert facial cleansing, possible skin exfoliation, possible pore extraction, possible LED therapy, calming and/ or hydrating masks, and sunblock application. “A facial is my initial consult with a new patient and a way to follow-up with an established patient, says Alla, our medical esthetician. “I devote my attention to your face to learn about your skin, see what it needs, and make you feel relaxed and pampered at the same time.”
Absolutely! Deep cleansing, pore extraction, light chemical peels, LED therapy, and high-frequency therapy can all help treat active acne and its associated inflammation. Pore extractions help unclog congested pores and open pimples, while chemical peeling and LED therapy help decrease the burden of acne-causing bacteria in the skin. High frequency treatments can melt away the redness of a deep or very inflamed acne outbreak. “Teen facials or acne facials are an important tool in my treatment plan against acne,” says Alla, and recommends acne-specific facials for her patients at a minimum of every 3-4 weeks.
We can combine dermaplaning, microneedling, LED therapy, eyebrow waxing and tinting, and eyelash tinting with a facial. A facial can incorporate purifying or hydrating masks, lymphatic drainage massage, and high-frequency anti-inflammatory treatment.
A facial at Aviva Plastic Surgery costs $150, and is an approximately 1-hour long treatment. Additional procedures increase the facial’s cost.
