Is 2019 Your Year for a Mommy Makeover?

Portrait Of Happy Mother And Daughter.

If you’re a mom, it’s likely that you spend the majority of your time thinking about and catering to others. Your newborn, your older children, and maybe even your spouse: each have needs and wants that only you can handle.

Any woman who has been through the journey of pregnancy and breastfeeding knows firsthand the physical changes a women’s body goes through. These changes often linger long after the first year of pregnancy, and many women find it difficult to get back the body they had before delivering their child.

A Mommy Makeover can help with restoring lost confidence and gaining back a pre-baby body. You do so much for others…so why not consider treating yourself in 2019?!

What is a Mommy Makeover?

The term “Mommy Makeover” refers to a specialized procedure combining a variety of body contouring methods. Typically, this approach starts with breast and abdomen contouring and then adds additional elements as needed or requested by the patient.

Why should I get a Mommy Makeover?

This procedure is so popular because its components are tailored for each individual patient’s needs. Popular among celebrities and other Hollywood elite, a Mommy Makeover is the easiest way to get not only your pre-baby body back, but the body you’ve always wanted.

Not only is this procedure completely customizable, it works to help restore the shape and appearance of your body after childbirth. The procedures available to you include:

  • Breast lift
  • Breast augmentation
  • Tummy tuck
  • Liposuction
  • Arm lift
  • Thigh lift
  • Buttock augmentation
  • Vaginal rejuvenation

And much more!

Am I an Ideal Candidate?

As long as you are finished with childbearing, in good medical health, and close to your ideal body weight, you are a fantastic candidate for a Mommy Makeover. It’s important to go into the surgery with a positive outlook and realistic expectations…for the best possible version of yourself and your body!

As 2018 winds to a close, and many of us start to think about resolutions and changes, why not make the decision to get the body you’ve always dreamed of? You deserve a Mommy Makeover, and you have MORE than earned it.

Best Procedures to Reduce Wrinkles and Restore Youthful Skin

Woman getting laser face treatment in medical spa center.

The effects of aging can be seen throughout the body, but they most commonly appear on our faces – which is often the first thing people notice.

However, there are now a variety of safe, affordable procedures for every type of skin rejuvenation. We can now restore the elastic, youthful skin we once had and reduce the wrinkles that have begun to appear…and it’s much easier than most people think.

Here, we’ll highlight a few of our favorite procedures and discuss the best options for those wishing for youthful, vibrant, wrinkle-free skin.

Corrective Facials help to rejuvenate facial skin, relax the mind, and restore beauty, all in a relaxing spa environment. We also offer a membership service for customized facials every month.

  • Clear and Brilliant® is a non-surgical, laser skin care treatment used to reduce the signs of aging and provide a more youthful, glowing appearance. It is a less invasive, gentler option than other fractional laser treatments.
  • SkinPen is a brand new, fractional, micro-needling device that tightens, lifts, and rejuvenates for smoother, firmer, younger looking skin: all with minimal discomfort! Marvel is the ONLY practice in Nashville that offers this cutting edge service, voted “Best New Aesthetic Device of the Year.”

Injectables and Dermal Fillers are the perfect option for men and women looking to correct wrinkles or folds and restore the contours and smoothness of the face. Roughly one million people annually choose injectables or dermal fillers because of their affordable cost and easy recovery, without extensive surgery.

  • Botox or Dysport (for larger areas) injectables work by relaxing the facial muscles to remove wrinkles on the forehead, around the corners of eyes, or on other areas of the face.
  • Juvederm and Restylane are fillers that provide natural-looking results by smoothing wrinkles and folds, or adding subtle enhancements and smoothing lines.
  • Voluma, Kybella, and Bellafill are used to correct specific areas of the face, including the nose, below the chin, and for the “laugh lines.”

Non-Surgical Facelift is a great option for patients wanting the benefit of a facelift without any incisions. Most people are familiar with a traditional Facelift, which helps to correct facial sagging, reduces wrinkles/fine lines, and provides an improved, more youthful appearance.

A Non-Surgical Facelift is great because it uses the body’s own existing stem cells found in fat tissue to help regenerate tissue. Benefits also include a more predictable outcome, a more cost-effective procedure, and the avoidance of synthetic fillers.

Not sure which facial improvement is the right fit for you? We offer every patient a risk-free, complimentary skin analysis before they undergo any procedure. This helps ensure that we are picking the best procedure to suit you and your specific needs, to bring out YOUR most beautiful skin.
Contact us today at 615-538-0399 to schedule your free consultation, and get ready to love the skin you’re in!

New Year, New You! Why 2019 is Your Year for Cosmetic Surgery

New Year, New You! Why 2019 is Your Year for Cosmetic Surgery

The new year is almost here, and we are looking forward to working with new patients and helping them achieve their goals. Our patients mean a lot to us, so we take time to understand their goals and to go above and beyond to create a treatment plan that will work specifically for them.

You would be surprised at the number of patients who wonder why it took them so long to pursue their procedure after they see their amazing results! There are many reasons why people delay treatment, so allow us to tell you why we believe 2019 is the best year for your cosmetic surgery!

Common Misbeliefs About Cosmetic Surgery

Here are the most common reasons we hear of why patients put off surgery:

  • Afraid the results won’t look natural
  • Being concerned they are too old
  • Not sure if it’s affordable
  • Wanting to achieve their goals without going under the knife
  • The safety of the procedures

Today with all the technology at our disposal doctors can provide patients with more tailored and natural looking results. In short, there hasn’t been a better time to consider cosmetic surgery!

Non-Invasive Procedures

One particular advancement that is revolutionizing the way cosmetic procedures are done in 2019 is the use of lasers.

Lasers enhance the epidermis in many ways. They tighten tissue, remove blemishes, reduce wrinkles, and give the skin a youthful appearance. Additionally, lasers are more targeted, so the precision is astonishing compared to what was offered just five years ago. What that means for you is the ability to get fantastic, natural results with less recovery time and light anesthesia.

Injections Offer More Options

The new year is all about a new you and if you want to improve the appearance of your skin by eliminating fine lines, wrinkles, and furrow lines, you no longer have to go under the knife! A treatment plan of injections can not only improve skin’s appearance but work as a preventative treatment to slow down the effects of aging. Through the use of fillers and Botox, patients can achieve a natural, youthful glow. If utilized appropriately, your treatment plan can also slow down the signs of aging. 

Breast Augmentation Has More Options

Breast augmentation surgery is one of the leading cosmetic procedures in the United States and will continue to be one of our most requested in 2019. Over the years, implant options have expanded, giving patients more customization over the final appearance and feel of the implant. While saline and silicone remain two of the most popular, the market is continuing to expand with a third option. “Gummy Bear” implants are a new product that mimics the natural contours of the breast with an emphasis of fullness on the bottom.

Don’t want implants? There’s an option for that as well! Fat transfers utilize the body’s fat to add volume without relying on an implant of any kind. This technique is perfect for women who are wanting a subtle increase in volume with an minimal scarring.

At Marvel Cosmetic Surgery, we are committed to delivering the most advanced techniques and procedures to give our patients the best possible results. Our board-certified doctors are updating their expertise with continued education and providing procedures that are unique, customizable, safe, and yield natural-looking results. Learn more by contacting our offices at 615-329-3900.

What Happens During Eyelid Surgery?

Did you know that eyelid surgery isn’t just for cosmetic purposes? While many patients undergo this type of surgery to have double eyelids, there are also those who have functional problems that necessitate the need to undergo eyelid surgery, shares Dr. Alton Ingram MD. For eyelid surgery, one example of a functional need for it is to remove loose or sagging skin that may be impairing a patient’s vision.

The Steps for Eyelid Surgery Procedure

Regardless of purpose or intent to undergo eyelid surgery, the procedure is more or less the same. Dr. Alton Ingram MD shares that patients must first determine whether they are a candidate for the procedure. In general, the best candidates for eyelid surgery should be healthy individuals, non-smokers, have realistic expectations, and do not have any serious eye conditions. The best way to find out if you’re a candidate is to consult your plastic surgeon. Your plastic surgeon will evaluate your facial anatomy and determine the best course of action for your concerns or goals.

On the day of the procedure, the surgeon will first administer anesthesia, which can either be general anesthesia or through intravenous sedation.

Next, the surgeon will make an incision on the natural creases of the eyelid. Depending on the goal of the surgery, the surgeon may remove or reposition fat deposits, tighten muscles, or remove excess skin, shares Dr. Alton Ingram MD.

After that the surgeon will now close the incision. Because it’s done on the natural creases of the eyelid, the resultant scars will be well-concealed. In general, it takes a week before the sutures can be removed.

Finally, patients are given post-procedure care instructions by their surgeon as they may experience bruising and swelling during the recovery period.

This is a general outline of the steps in an eyelid surgery procedure.

5 Tips for Optimized Plastic Surgery Recovery

So, you had an expert plastic surgeon execute a successful procedure (which may or may not have been performed by an experienced specialist like Tup Ingram, MD) and now you’re entering the recovery phase.

In order to enjoy optimum results, it’s equally important that you and your surgeon nail the aftercare process.

The good news is that modern plastic surgery procedures are totally safe and more popular than ever. There are also minimally invasive procedures for those who need non-surgical alternatives.

However, cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery are still considered surgery, and some of them come with lengthy recovery times attached. Even the most simple procedures require some amount of recovery time.

But there are ways you can speed up your recovery process. Just like with any time you’re given in this life, what you do with your recovery time is what counts. If you’re able to follow some (or all) of these tips for your post-operative care, you’ll come out of your procedure in the best shape possible.

Read on for ways to recover more quickly from plastic surgery, that way you can get back to your normal life ASAP!

Follow All Instruction

It’s important to follow instructions for aftercare, whether you get them from Dr. Ingram or another plastic surgery specialist. You’ll be given a comprehensive packet of information regarding your specific procedure that will give you the path to a full and optimized recovery.

Take Plenty of Time off Work

Patients should always plan ahead and get the requisite amount of time off until suitable to engage in the demands of everyday employment. You don’t want to go back too early and compromise your results or re-injure yourself.

Gain a Support System

Have friends and family ready to pitch in. You’ll need someone to give you a ride to and from the procedure. You’ll also want someone to preferably wait on you and get you things and retrieve objects so that you aren’t tasked with doing it, initially. That way you can get the cooking and cleaning done that you need to stay comfortable.

Stay on Top of a Good Diet

Your body responds when you give it good, clean fuel to work with. A nutritious, calorie-rich diet will even help speed your recovery. Have ready-to-eat meals if that will make things easier.

Pamper Yourself a Little Bit

This might mean having tasty, post-surgery-friendly treats at the waiting, or even having your favorite movies or shows queued up to catch up on. Give yourself the love and care you need and you will have the best possible chances of making a fantastic recovery, so you can enjoy your lasting results.

Stay Away from Exercise

Make sure you relish in this one. Normally regular exercise is an important part of living a balanced life of health and wellness. But, when you’re recovering, it’s important that you don’t exert yourself or go through intense exercise, though it might be a difficult task if you’re heavily active normally. It’ll be worth it in the end and exercise isn’t going anywhere, it will be there for you when you’re physically ready.

Be on the lookout for more information about how to optimize your recovery and your wellness.

Why Winter is the Best Time for Laser and Cosmetic Procedures

Why Winter is the Best Time for Laser and Cosmetic Procedures

Some people are still under the misconception that you should not undergo cosmetic procedures or laser treatments during the winter. However, this is one of the best times of year for these treatments! A weaker sun means less sensitivity and an easier healing process for your skin. Additionally, you can spend more time healing indoors, so by summer you’re ready to show off your fabulous results!

Read below to discover why winter is a great time of year for a cosmetic procedure or laser treatment.

You Have Time to Plan Ahead

A concern most cosmetic surgeons hear from patients is they would like to recover in private and they want the post-op to be discrete so that they can heal comfortably. Planning your procedure around the holidays allows you to take advantage of some of the time off already allocated to you.

More Conducive to Treatment Plans

If you want to take advantage of the age reversing benefits of lasers, you’re looking at multiple sessions to get your desired results. These treatments are spread out because your skin needs time to heal in between. Cosmetic surgeons will also recommend that you avoid sun exposure. In winter, this is much easier to do because we naturally spend more time indoors.

You’ll Be Ready for Summer

When summer creeps up on us, we start thinking about fitting into swimsuits, shorts, and dresses. However, when you are considering laser treatments or cosmetic surgery you have to include recovery time. Undergoing procedures in the winter means you have plenty of time for your skin to heal and the swelling to go down, so you’ll be ready to show off your new self by summer.

Your Skin is Lighter

Give your summer tan time to fade before you book your laser treatments because they tend to work better on lighter skin. Lasers have an easier time penetrating the epidermis when your skin is at its lightest hue. So, if you wait until fall and winter, the treatment will be more effective.

UVA Won’t Damage Results

The goal of a laser treatment is to heal and repair you skin. However, being outdoors in the sun you are exposed to UVA rays, which damage to the skin. Since the sun’s power is much lower in the winter, you will receive less damage. Even if you apply sunscreen, waiting until the fall or winter is still a better option.

There is Less Sensitivity

Not only does the sun and UVA rays damage your skin, but they make it incredibly sensitive, which will also interfere with your results. The goal after a procedure is to heal properly. Spending more time inside means you will recover better and give your body the self-care it needs post-op.

The Additional Layers Are Protective

Part of a laser treatment or cosmetic procedure’s recovery might include redness, swelling, and sometimes flaky skin. By adding winter layers, you are providing an extra layer of protection between your new delicate skin and harsh elements. You can also use these layers to hide any bandages and temporary swelling you might encounter while recovering.

Laser treatments and cosmetic procedures help define silhouettes and improve the skin’s appearance. Whatever it is you want to enhance, reduce, define, shape, or smooth, there are practical solutions available to you this winter!   

At Marvel Cosmetic Surgery, we offer a comprehensive list of laser and cosmetic procedures. We provide patients with the most advanced processes to get unparalleled results with an emphasis on care. Call us today at 615-329-3900 to see how we can help you get your desired results!

How to Prepare for Your Cosmetic Procedure

How to Prepare for Your Cosmetic Procedure

Many people are choosing cosmetic surgery because they wish to enhance, rejuvenate, or simply reshape their body. Today, technological advancements give surgeons the ability to provide clients with the most natural results.

But before you go under the knife, we’ve put together a comprehensive guide to help you prepare for your cosmetic procedure.

Confirm Your Doctor is Board Certified

After medical school, most doctors go on to specialize in one area of medicine. They work towards becoming a board-certified surgeon, which requires even more training, continued education, and the ability to pass a rigorous set of exams. Only choose a doctor with a board certification, so you know they will have the expertise to complete your procedure safely and with the best results possible.

Book a Consultation

Consultations are a must when preparing for surgery. In fact, it would be inadvisable to continue with a procedure without talking to your doctor first. The consultation gives you and the surgeon plenty of time to discuss your goals and create a treatment plan specific to you.

During this meeting, ask about your options, the final pricing, and any risks associated with the surgery. Ask about the recovery period, taking time off work, and avoiding strenuous activities like exercise.

This conversation will deepen your connection with your doctor, instill trust, and confirm you have made the appropriate choice for your surgery.

Preparing for Cosmetic Surgery

You’ll need to prepare for surgery at least three weeks before your appointment. Here are some of the best tips for getting your body ready.

Three Weeks Before

What you put in your body can impact the results and how well you recover from surgery. Three weeks out, stop smoking and drinking. Both weaken the immune system which will be working overtime to help you recover after your operation. Alcohol can make you susceptible to bleeding. You should stop consuming alcohol pre and post op until your surgeon has given you permission. 

All prescription and over the counter medications need to be divulged to your doctor. If you are taking anything that could compromise your health during the procedure, you’ll need to stop taking them temporarily to prepare your body.

Two Weeks Before

Coming off your medications is often a gradual process. During week two, you will revisit all your medications with your surgeon and make necessary adjustments. Most notably will be the removal of blood thinners such as aspirin and ibuprofen and other medicines like anti-inflammatories or Vitamin-E.

During week two you start taking vitamin supplements that will boost your overall health. Vitamins A and C are great, plus Bromelain. It’s found in pineapples and works will to relieve swelling after surgery.

One Week Before

This week, you’ll need to focus on reducing the swelling. Surgery is hard on the body, and there is sure to be some swelling associated with the procedure. Did you know that too much salt increases sodium levels which can be uncomfortable after your procedure is complete? Continue improving your immune system by eating whole fruits, vegetables, and grains. If you will need prescription post-op, go ahead and get them filled before.

5 Things You Need to Know about CO2 Skin Resurfacing

Laser treatments are designed to help manage various skin conditions and improve the skin’s surface quality. If you're interested in reducing the signs of aging and improving the appearance of scars, read on for more information about our CO2 laser treatment.

At Marvel Cosmetic Surgery, we pride ourselves in providing our patients with quality care. One way we do this by offering the latest treatments so our patients experience incredible results. Laser treatments have made several advancements over the years, but many people have yet to experience them.

Laser treatments are designed to help manage various skin conditions and improve the skin’s surface quality. If you’re interested in reducing the signs of aging and improving the appearance of scars, read on for more information about our CO2 laser treatment.

1.When to Get a Laser Treatment

The time of year you schedule a laser treatment is important because when your skin comes into contact with a laser, it becomes more sensitive to UVA and UVB rays. Getting your laser treatments in the fall ensures your skin will have limited exposure to the sun because you spend more time indoors. It’s also recommended that you wear SPF 30 after the procedure, regardless the time of year.

2. Choose a Highly-trained Physician for the Best Results

Laser resurfacing is a safe way to reduce scarring and improve skin tone. However, you don’t want to trust just anyone. Choose a professional who is knowledgeable about the process to ensure your results will be a dramatic improvement.  Working with someone who is poorly trained could result in unnecessary pain and damage to the skin. When choosing a doctor, only consider working with someone who is board certified.

3. Medications Can Affect Results

Transparency about health issues or conditions is the best way to ensure you get the most from your CO2 laser treatment. Particular medications and supplements can have an impact on how you recover.

Acne medications that contain Accutane can cause your skin to heal poorly and encourage scarring. Regular use of aspirin can cause excess bleeding post procedure. Conditions like recurring cold sores are worth mentioning because it’s possible that you might experience a breakout. Diabetes and other chronic conditions should be addressed so your doctor can analyze how they might affect your results or healing capabilities.

4. Your Skin May or May Not be Tender

Everyone will experience a different sensation while undergoing a laser treatment. However, most doctors and patients compare it to a rubber band snapping against the skin. The CO2 laser penetrates the skin on a much deeper level than other lasers. When you are meeting with your physician at your consultation, you can discuss ways to minimize discomfort.

5. A CO2 laser has Different Advantages than Other Lasers

Not all lasers are created equal. A CO2 laser penetrates the epidermis more deeply. It has the capabilities to:

Resurface Skin

The CO2 will gently vaporize the outer layer of the skin, reducing and in some instances eliminating sun-damage and acne scarring. It can also blend out fine lines and wrinkles to reveal smooth, fresh skin. The precision of the laser also gives your physician control over the application. You should see amazing results in just four to six weeks.

Rejuvenate Hands

Many times, our hands will give away our age before our face does. CO2 laser treatments can help achieve smoother, younger looking skin in just a few visits. By combining the laser with other effective treatments, such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion, you can effectively remove sun spots, wrinkles, or other blemishes to restore volume and create a youthful appearance.

Feminine Rejuvenation

Feminine rejuvenation is an excellent option for women who have given birth or are experiencing incontinence. The CO2 laser safely tightens and strengthens, while stimulating the production of collagen. As the new skin cells formulate, the tissue will become smoother and healthier. The treatment can also help stop unwanted secretions, increase blood flow, and sensitivity.

What are Gummy Bear Breast Implants?

What are Gummy Bear Breast Implants?

Breast augmentation is an excellent way to improve the fullness and projection of your breast. There are many implants available that give patients flexibility and control over their final look and appearance. Silicone and saline are the most common materials used to construct implants, but a newer version is making ways onto the market and proving to be a superior choice for anyone wanting the most natural shape possible. Gummy bear implants are made from silicone but provide a completely different look and feel from traditional silicone implants.

Let’s take a closer look at gummy bear implants and see how they differ from other implants available.

What are Gummy Bear Implants?

Gummy Bear implants are a newer style of form-stable implants developed to give women the most natural shape possible. They’re constructed with a firm silicone outer layer and a cohesive gel silicone interior. The firm outer layer is thicker than the filling inside, and it’s this firmness that gives these implants the ability to maintain their shape. Comparatively speaking, the consistency of the silicone inside is similar to Gummy Bear candy, hence the name. Gummy bear implants are offered in a teardrop shape. Teardrop differs from circular not just in shape but projection. Implants like this hold less filler in the top, with the weight predominately at the bottom giving more projection than the round implants.

The Benefits of Gummy Bear Implants

Smaller chances of folding or rippling.

The material used to construct the teardrop shaped implants is more resistant to migration. There is cross-linking on each to provide wearers with more stability.

You get a more natural look.

As we previously mentioned, gummy implants are available in a teardrop shape. The rounded bottom and thinner top mimic a natural breast shape, and the gummy silicone inside has a firmness that looks more natural.

Chances are they won’t leak.

Fold lines on the implant usually cause implant leakage. Pressure adds to the stress and can cause them to break at these delicate areas. Gummy bear implants are less likely to leak because they don’t develop these fold lines.

They offer you more stability.

The cohesive gel interior and firm silicone exterior are semi-solid. With such a firm structure, the implants have less opportunity to travel far. Less traveling under the muscle or breast tissue reduces the risk of rupture.

The implants will hold their shape longer.

Gummy bear implants are made from silicone, but the construction is much firmer. The being said, they will have the long-lasting effects of silicone but look more natural and be more durable.

What You Should Know Before Breast Augmentation Surgery

Every surgery will start with a consultation with a trusted cosmetic surgeon. During this meeting, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss everything about the procedure and what is the best fit for your body.  A few topic points you’ll want to include are:

– Incision placement – there are three incision points: around the nipple, the breast fold, and under the arm. Knowing the incision points gives you an idea where you will find scarring.

– Implant placement – you have two options for placement: under the muscle or under the breast tissue. You and your surgeon can discuss which one is the best for your body.

– Cost – At your consultation, you will receive the final cost estimate for your procedure. Costs will cover anesthesia fees, the implants, and surgeon’s fees amongst many other things like testing.

At Marvel Cosmetic Surgery, our pricing is all-inclusive. When you meet with our expert team of surgeons, you’ll receive one-on-one attention to answer all of your questions and help you develop a procedural plan that’s right for you. With payments as low as $99 a month, there’s no better time to call and book a consultation at 615-205-9771.

Why Medical Peels are the Secret to Younger Skin

Why Medical Peels are the Secret to Younger Skin

Achieving younger, glowing skin is possible with the use of medical peels. Medical peels use a variety of different acid combinations to slough away dead skin and reveal fresher, plumper looking skin. It will also improve the way your skin absorbs the ingredients in your skin care products, which will help continuously improve your skin’s complexion and appearance.

Although medical peels have been around several years, many women still aren’t aware of all their benefits. We’ve compiled a list of seven different ways medical peels can help give you a youthful glow.

Peels make your skincare routine more effective

Medical peels lift the top layer of dead skin cells off the face. Dead skin is not absorbent and when it sits on top of the face it makes it harder for your skin care products to do their job. Dissolving the dead skin erases this barrier, making it easier to absorb all the good ingredients found in your face washes, lotions, and oils.

Immediate results for smoother looking skin.

Anyone who wants immediately smoother looking skin should choose a medical peel. They are effective at sloughing off the dead skin that leave a textured appearance. Without this added texture, your makeup application will look smoother, more even and the appearance of pores will be minimized.

There is a peel for every skin concern.

Not every skin reacts and behaves the same way. When it comes to beauty routines, you’ll want to find the best one to suit your needs. The virtue of medical peels lie in the customization of each treatment, meaning there is a medical peel that will suit just about every skin concern.

Medical peels come with minimal side-effects.

Years ago, many people associated medial peels with a red, burned face. But now, you can add and subtract acids and their intensity, so it’s possible to build a gentle, yet effective peel that is perfect for your skin. Some skin types can handle stronger acids than others, so there is a lot of flexibility to building the right amount of acids for your specific needs.

Peels eliminate acne and acne scarring.

Different acids that have different benefits. For example, salicylic acid has the ability to dive deep and unclog pores. They erode blackheads and fight blemishes at the root. The solution can also linger in the pores to help the skin stay clear over time.

You can reduce the appearance of melasma.

Melasma is a common skin problem among adults. It’s identified as brown or grey patches on the skin, which mostly appear on the face. This discoloration can present itself as a result of too much sun exposure or during hormonal changes in women. Medical peels help to drastically reduce the appearance of melasma.

You can target dark circles under the eyes.

We’ve already touched on how customizable the formulation is for building the right peel for your skin. But, this expands into a gentle acid combination that can work wonders on minimizing the pigmentation under the eyes. Because they are so gentle, you might need a series of treatments to see the best results.
