With our upcoming chemical peel event on August 28th, 2013, the providers of Pittman Plastic Surgery discuss the benefits of their FDA-approved SkinMedica® chemical peels. The Vitalize and Rejuvenize peels from SkinMedica® safely and effectively exfoliate and ‘peel away’ damaged skin cells to allow new, healthy ones to replace them. Like our other non-surgical procedures such as Botox®, facial fillers, and CoolSculpting®, chemical peels require little to no downtime and provide great results to eliminate skin conditions.

While a chemical peel may sound intimidating, it is named for the chemical solutions used to exfoliate skin and promote collagen growth. During treatment, our trained and experienced providers will cleanse facial skin and gently apply the peel to exfoliate skin. The Vitalize Peel is safe for all skin types and minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sun spots caused by aging. Our Rejuvenize Peel is a deeper chemical peel that effectively minimizes the signs of aging, acne scars, and melasma. Both SkinMedica® peels provide noticeable results after one treatment and require minimal downtime.

Depending on the strength and type of peel, some patients may experience minor redness or swelling. At Pittman Plastic Surgery, we also provide skin care products to help patients maintain and protect their healing skin. Additionally, patients who are concerned with wrinkles and fine lines can also choose among our injectables such as Botox®, Juvéderm®, Radiesse®, and more. Cosmetic injectables and facial fillers naturally smooth skin and last up to six months. For more comprehensive signs of aging, Athens plastic surgeons Drs. Ed Pittman and Piotr Skowronski perform facial procedures such as facelift, eyelid surgery, and brow lifts to help patients address concerns.
