Indulge: The Platinum HydraFacial at Aviary Beauty & Wellness Collective combines microderm, oxygen, and clinical facials for a treatment that’s “exfoliating and deep cleansing and rids the face of puffiness,” says owner Amy Leavell Bransford. $295 (60 to 70 minutes)

At home: Bransford suggests Luzern’s Hydra Enzyme Masque Nuit overnight for brighter, smoother skin, courtesy of pumpkin enzymes. $100


Indulge: Lead aesthetician Kat Smart at the Spa at the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta calls the Bio Organic Facial, which uses BioTense Nelly De Vuyst products, “Botox without the injectables.” The spa is one of only three hotels in the U.S. to offer the ecofriendly line, which is organic, fair trade, vegan, and biodegradable. From $170

At home: Try the brand’s highly concentrated Serum BioTense, loaded with natural extracts. $75


Indulge: The Cool Beam Facial at Exhale Spa at Loews Atlanta Hotel uses LED phototherapy to reduce inflammation and target problem areas like breakouts, sun spots, and fine lines, leaving skin clearer and softer. $205 (60 minutes)

At home: For smoothing fine lines in a pinch, Exhale’s lead aesthetician Ashley Adams recommends Pestle & Mortar Hyaluronic Serum. $69
