The differences between the two & what is right for you

From a distance, chemical peels and facials may look similar, but they offer different benefits. Just about every person can find a facial that works for them but chemical peels can be a different story. Get a closer look and see if a peel is right for you!

To start off: What is a chemical peel?

Chemical Peels vs. Facials

Chemical peels are a topical treatment performed by Medical Aestheticians. By applying chemicals to the skin, the top layer is gently exfoliated away.

After the treatment, you can expect to see diminished fine lines, a more even skin tone, lightening of dark spots/age spots, fewer breakouts, and an overall more radiant glow.

At Donaldson Plastic Surgery, our Medical Aestheticians use peels that are designed to be gentle. Some peels can be harsh and disrupt the skin’s integrity. Our’s deliver the same results but over a span of time, so they do not compromise your skin’s natural barrier.

So, are chemical peels safe?

Because our peels aren’t as aggressive as others, you won’t experience drastic peeling. Your skin may be dry or slightly flaky right after, but you will not experience a “snakeskin” appearance.

What’s the difference between a chemical peel and a facial?

Chemical peels are a more intensive treatment for the skin. Facials are topical treatments that can include things like steam, extractions, moisturization, and massage elements. With all of these elements combined, facials create a very relaxing experience.

A closer look at other key differences between chemical peels and facials:

Chemical PeelsFacials
Short treatment. No more than 45 minutes.Longer and more luxurious.
Series of 6 treatments every week or every other week.Performed once every 4-6 weeks.
Produces long-term results.Produces more short-term results but can produce long-term results with consistency.
More aggressive treatments.Gentler and more relaxing.

Can I combine chemical peels and facials?

During your chemical peel series, it is recommended to hold off on getting a facial during this time. After your chemical peels have been completed, monthly facials will maintain your skin’s health.

Nikki and Tatjana recommend starting off with a facial first before beginning your peel series. 

Chemical Peel Being Applied

What can I expect during my chemical peel treatment?

The skin is first cleansed and prepped before the peel is applied. Dependent on the peel, it will either sit for 10-20 minutes as one layer or multiple layers will be added every few minutes. The peel is then removed, the skin will be neutralized, moisturizer and/or sunscreen will be applied, and you will be on your way!

What kinds of chemical peels are there?

Donaldson Plastic Surgery offers peels for all types of skin concerns. Acne, age spots, scarring, congestion, redness, are some examples of concerns that peels can address.

What is best for me?

We highly recommend consulting with an experienced Medical Aesthetician to determine the best route for you when choosing a chemical peel that is right for you. These trained professionals are able to customize your peel dependent on your skin’s needs and sensitivities.

All Of Your Skin Tightening Options, In One Place

Aging, pregnancy, weight gain (or loss), hormones, genetics, medical conditions, lifestyle factors, and sun exposure can all contribute to drooping skin. Treatments for tightening the skin, however, are more difficult to identify. Reversing the skin’s natural processes can be challenging, but there are several truly effective skin tightening solutions at Donaldson Plastic Surgery that you should know about.

We’re here to answer two questions:

  1. What treatments & procedures are out there specifically to tighten skin? and
  2. which ones are the most effective?
Patient with tight skin smiling

The Most Effective Treatment For You Depends on Skin Laxity & Elasticity

Whether a treatment will be effective or not varies from person-to-person, depending on two things: the level of skin laxity (mild, moderate, or severe) and the overall elasticity of the skin. For example, an individual in their 20s or 30s with mild or moderate loose skin will have relatively higher skin elasticity and, therefore, will be more likely to see loose skin improve over time with regular non-invasive treatments.

Moderate to severe skin laxity is more common among individuals in their 50s or 60s. This population is more likely to have relatively lower skin elasticity, so their skin may be less responsive to non-surgical treatments. In this case, surgical skin tightening may be a more effective path to correct your concerns.

No matter your concerns or what level of loose skin you have, we have the tools to help you address it. Our team of experienced aesthetic specialists is here to help you identify what level of treatment is right for you to tighten loose skin of the face, neck, and body — all the way from result-driven products to our surgical skin tightening procedures.

Skin Care Solutions & Medspa Treatments

Our Medical Aestheticians Tatjana and Nikki recommend a combination of at-home care and professional Medspa treatments to correct mild to moderate loose skin of the face, neck, and body. Listed below is a powerful collection of medical-grade skincare products that you can use to improve skin elasticity, visibly improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and combat signs of aging.

Non-Invasive Skin Tightening Treatments


Non-invasive skin tightening treatments like Ultherapy are more targeted and go deeper to address the underlying causes of mild to moderate loose skin. Ultherapy is a non-surgical skin tightening and lifting treatment that uses ultrasonic energy to send waves deep within the skin that stimulate collagen production. Because it works on a deeper level than other treatments, Ultherapy is a great preventative treatment for individuals seeing the beginnings of aging skin, rather than a fix to severe sagging or wrinkling. It is primarily intended to lift and tighten the skin of the brow, chin, jowls, neck, and upper chest, but can also be used to target other specific areas of concern.


Halo laser treatment

Halo Laser Skin Resurfacing is a hybrid fractional laser treatment that addresses a number of visible skin concerns and offers skin tightening benefits from inducing collagen production in the healing process. For patients with mild to moderate skin laxity, Halo can result in more youthful, tighter-looking skin. Although the Halo laser is not primarily for skin tightening, patients usually see and feel a skin tightening effect. Wrinkles and fine lines are addressed with Halo, as well as other signs of aging, problematic skin texture, scarring, and sun damage. Other benefits of Halo include minimal downtime and a noticeable improvement of skin a just a couple of days. You can schedule Halo with Adrienne, Paige, Stacie, or Angie.

Minimally-Invasive Skin Tightening Treatments

Renuvion (J Plasma) Skin Tightening

Renuvion (also known as J Plasma) is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses a combination of radiofrequency energy and helium gas to virtually tighten the skin of the face, neck, and body. A wand emitting the stream of energy is gently passed underneath (in some cases overtop) the dermal layer to cause contraction of the skin. Results can be seen immediately, but dramatically improve over time. See what one patient has to say about her chin liposuction and Renuvion results with Dr. Sieffert!


Botox and fillers are not “skin tightening treatments”, but they do offer benefits that address signs of mild to moderate skin laxity, which is why we include them here.

Aging skin can cause wrinkles, folds, and droopiness to form, which can be corrected using minimally-invasive injectables like Botox and dermal fillers for the face. Botox works by softening the appearance fine lines and wrinkles in the skin by relaxing the muscle underneath that causes the crease to form. Fillers restore volume under the skin to an area where volume has been lost and skin has begun to droop or fold as a result (ex. the jawline, or nasolabial folds and marionette lines). Neither injectable treatment is used to reverse skin laxity, but they can help to improve common concerns associated with it.

Surgical Skin Tightening Procedures

Tightening a surgical glove

To successfully treat more significant loose skin, surgery is usually the best option.

With surgical skin tightening procedures, excess skin is removed surgically and the remaining skin is re-draped tighter than before. This option is the gold-standard is for patients who have moderate to severe skin laxity as a result of aging or weight loss but can be ideal for mild to moderate skin laxity as well.

Here are some of our most effective surgical solutions performed by Dr. Donaldson & Dr. Sieffert.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is a procedure in which excess skin and fat are surgically removed from the abdomen (and the underlying muscles tightened) to improve its contours. Stretched skin in this area will not always retract on its own, making surgery the only option to return the abdomen to its original form.

Anyone who has undergone pregnancy or weight loss, or who just simply struggles with excess skin of the belly, can benefit from this kind of surgical tightening. Scarring for a tummy tuck is minimal and easily concealed with undergarments or bathing suits, and our tummy tuck patients are thrilled with their results. Their only regret is they wished they had done is sooner!

Body Lift

A body lift, or circumferential body contouring, is a procedure in which excess skin of the entire abdominal front, back, and sides is removed for a tighter trunk. Usually performed on individuals with severe skin laxity of the body, this procedure is common amongst individuals who have undergone significant weight loss and are left with excess skin as a result. A body lift can also encompass surgical tightening of multiple areas including the arms, chest, upper and lower back, buttocks, and thighs — the surgery is always customized to address the patient’s concerns.

Arm and Thigh Lift

Arm lifts and thigh lifts are procedures in which sagging excess skin of the upper arms and thighs is removed, often solving cosmetic concerns of the colloquial “bat wings” and sagging skin of the inner thighs and above the knee. They can be performed individually or together, depending on a patient’s wishes. These two areas are very likely to loosen with age, so the majority of arm and thigh lift candidates simply wish to see their extremities restored to a more youthful-looking state. Scarring is likely to be visible in these areas, so please discuss your concerns with your surgeon prior to surgery.

Face and Neck Lift

Facelifts and neck lifts are also common amongst individuals with concerns of drooping skin. As exterior representations of how we present ourselves to the world, the areas of the face and neck are often ones of prime importance — but, unfortunately, they can be some of the first areas to show the effects of aging. In a facelift and/or neck lift, excess skin is excised by your surgeon and the skin is laid tauter than it was before. Specific areas like the lower or upper face can be targeted, as in the case of a brow lift. Scarring is very discrete and easily concealed.

Eyelid Lift

Upper and lower blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, are surgical procedures in which excess skin of the upper and lower lid is carefully removed, and the remaining skin joined back together for younger, fresher-looking eyes. If you have what some might describe as overly-hooded eyes, or suffer from large bags underneath, you are likely a good candidate for an eyelid lift. Sometimes fat pads in the lower eyelid may also be removed to reduce puffiness. The procedure is straightforward and scarring is virtually invisible.

7 Useful Tips To Give You More Youthful-Looking Lips

We are proud to say that no one appreciates the importance of lips more than the highly-trained aesthetic providers at Donaldson Plastic Surgery. We can think of no better way to honor this day by sharing our top tips for youthful-looking lips.

1. Lip filler

Lip filler is one of our most popular treatments, with thousands of patients having had received their lip filler treatments from our office. Volume in lips is a hallmark sign of youthfulness — as we age, we lose this volume over time. Lip filler is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a protein compound found naturally in our bodies. This substance is an excellent building-block for restoring lost volume in the lips, and can even allow us to create youthful-looking lips that will compliment your natural features. We tend to be give you a more conservative, natural treatment, especially if it is your first treatment. We can always add more filler with a touch-up!

2. Botox “Lip-flip”

Have you heard of a lip-flip? This lesser-known injectable technique has recently become a desirable alternative for those who are not interested in traditional lip fillers. Rather than adding volume, the Botox lip-flip instead relaxes the orbicularis oris muscle, allowing the top lip to relax and unfurl. “Flipping” the top lip slightly outwards this way results in a more noticeable projection of the cupid’s bow and upper tubercle (the small, rounded middle part of the upper lip), which gives the lips a fuller-looking appearance. Results can vary with the lip-flip, but it often is a good way to try out minimally-invasive techniques for more youthful-looking lips.

Lip Repair Treatment Being Performed

3. Lip Repair Enhancement

Show your lips the extra love they deserve! Tatjana, our medical aesthetician, offers the Lip Repair treatment as a special service enhancement — it is designed to combine with a facial treatment to plump, moisturize, and refine the look of the lips. It addresses dry, chapped lips, and helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines and the harsh effects of the environment. This treatment can be added to any skincare service to enhance your experience in the Donaldson Plastic Surgery medspa.

4. YouthFull Lip Replenisher

This product is the best hydrating lip serum that we carry, and is a cult-favorite among our team members! This product plumps, hydrates, and smooths lines on the lips. Made to use as an everyday nourishing lip balm, this product has a high-end feel with a thick and glossy finish. The long-lasting formula stays through daily living and overnight-wear. The Replenisher acts like a combination of hydrating serum and lip plumper, and there is a slight minty, cooling sensation when applied. We couldn’t recommend the Youthful Lip Replenisher more!

Mineral Lip Gloss Treatments

5. Glo Skin Beauty’s mineral lip gloss

Glo’s mineral lip gloss has a luxurious, creamy color and beautiful shine. This mineral gloss glides on lips easily, and actually hydrates your lips as you wear it. Glo’s lip glosses are great on their own, but are very effective on top of lipstick and lip liner to offer extra impact and shine! This is one of those must-have makeup staples that we recommend carrying with you wherever you go!

6. GrandeLips Hydrating Lip Plumper

Lip Hydration Treatment

The GrandeLips Hydrating Lip Plumper is our favorite plumping product. If you are not familiar with what a lip plumper does, it helps to stimulate visible projection and provide a plumping effect to provide fullness to your natural lips without any stinging or burning sensations. The GrandeLips formula moisturizes, smooths, and improves firmness. These hydrating glosses also come in a wide range of colors, including reds, browns, pinks, and clear.

7. ZO Exfoliating Polish

Exfoliation is an important part of maintaining youthful-looking lips! A fan-favorite from renowned medical-grade skincare line ZO Skin Health, the Exfoliating Polish uses microdermabrasion crystals to finely and gently remove excess dead skin cells from the skin’s surface layer. This makes it an excellent option for providing a youthful glow to the lips, as well as your face, neck, and décolleté. We recommend using this polish as your lip exfoliant because it is gentle, has a wonderful aroma, and will leave your lips looking soft and smooth.

7. Lip lift

A lip lift is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure that shortens the space between the nose and the top of the lip, which can often elongate over time and make lips look thinner. When the upper lip is lifted, more of the pinkness of the lip is visible to others, making your lips look fuller and more pronounced. Compared to fillers, a lip lift is a permanent solution and an excellent option for anyone who would like to add height instead of just volume to their lips!

Ready for Youthful-Looking Lips?

If your lips are ready for some love, or you are simply curious about one of the treatment tips we’ve listed, set up a consultation with one of our providers! We would love to help you restore life in your lips. Happy Lips Appreciation Day!

The Mental Health Benefits of a Great Skincare Routine

While the name implies otherwise, skincare is more than skin-deep. Here at Donaldson Plastic Surgery, our goal is to inspire confidence and promote well-being. We want you to find value in yourself through your appearance and your skin health. If you are healthy, it shows — inside and out!

Our Philosophy

It comes as no surprise that taking care of oneself can improve their mental state. However, there are many theories and ideologies that support the palpable connection between psychology and our skin. Similar to the act of meditation, we believe that skin care is a powerful therapeutic practice that strengthens the mind-body connection and deepens the relationship we have with ourselves. The more attuned we become, the easier it is to be our authentic selves and exude genuine self-love.

Thus, our philosophy: Matching outer beauty with inner beauty builds confidence.

Your Specific At-Home Regimen

Our inspiration for confidence does not exist just within our practice. It also manifests on your countertops at home. Looking and feeling your best is an everyday effort, and we want to give you the best resources to make that happen. Education in your specific skin is a vital step in ensuring that you have the best chance of success for your best health. You want to use the right tools for the job. Everyone has different concerns, goals, needs, and paths to healthy beauty.

Ready to Meet With Us?

We aim to achieve this beyond just surgery, applying the same belief to your skin. Our products, aesthetic procedures, both invasive and non-invasive, and to our at-home regimen recommendations are all designed with your skin’s health in mind.

At Donaldson Plastic Surgery, we understand that this is your unique skin, and your unique story. We thank you for trusting us with that story, and we look forward to providing the answers and at-home care that you seek!

Dr. Sieffert’s Top 5 Cosmetic Treatment Recommendations After Isolation

If, like many of us at Donaldson Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Solutions, you’ve taken this time of social distancing for self-improvement, then you’re probably also thinking, “Once I’m allowed back to some sense of normalcy, what can I do (that I couldn’t do at home) to continue what I started?” 

I’m here to highlight just a few of the services we offer that I recommend when “coming out of quarantine” to help you on your journey to become the best, most confident version of you!

1) Wrinkle Relaxers & Botox

Neurotoxin injections (such as Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, Jeuveau, etc.) are used to treat wrinkles caused by muscle activity—most commonly in the forehead and around the eyes.  They can also be used for prevention if you are only just starting to see wrinkles surface!  The injections are relatively painless, only take a few moments to complete, and only need to be repeated roughly every 3-4 months (so you may be starting to see those fine lines and wrinkles return while on quarantine). My single rule for neurotoxin injections is simple: no exercise for 24 hours afterwards. 

We offer complimentary make-up touch-ups after any injectable procedure, so you can get back to your life without anyone being the wiser!

2) Facial Fillers

Filler is a substance made of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring substance in your skin. It is used to plump areas of the face and body that have experienced volume loss, or to shape areas of the face like the nose, chin, and jawline.  Different fillers (Ultra and Ultra Plus, Voluma, Vollure, Volbella, Restylane, Radiesse, etc.) are designed with different measures of thickness and longevity; they can last anywhere from 1-2 years depending on the product used and the location injected.  Some of my favorite locations for filler are the lips, cheeks, jawline, temples, and nasolabial folds. The treatment generally lasts 30 minutes (most of that time is spent discussing your needs and desires), and you can expect mild, but not unbearable, discomfort. 

I suggest planning filler injections at least a week ahead of any major event, as swelling and bruising is a possibility with any filler injection.  As mentioned above, we offer complimentary make-up touch ups after your injectable visit, so you can leave our office looking and feeling like you!

Filler Injections Process Being Performed

3) Spa Facials & Chemical Peels

Perhaps you’ve been experimenting with making your own facials at home to keep your skin healthy and glowing, but need a little something extra to brighten or moisturize as you’re getting back to work.   In my opinion, nobody performs a more relaxing and effective facial than our Lead Medical Aesthetician, Tatjana

Tatjana offers 45 minute to 1 hour-long facials and peels, targeted to your specific skin type and individual skin concerns.  Come in to see Tatjana to discuss any medspa skin service you might be interested in, including brightening your skin, controlling acne, hydrating dry skin, improving fine lines, and calming irritated and inflamed skin. 

4) CoolSculpting for Rapid Bodyfat Removal

Everyone has that “one area” that, no matter how hard you exercise and diet, never seems to go away; this is where CoolSculpting is of benefit! The advanced CoolSculpting technology freezes localized areas of fat, causing damage and, ultimately, death, of the fat cell itself.  Over the ensuing 2 to 3 months, the body removes the damaged fat cells from the area, causing a reduction of up to 25% of the fat present in the treatment area. 

Coolsculpting in Columbus Ohio

Each CoolSculpting treatment, or “cycle”, lasts 1 hour.  You can expect mild discomfort and tingling as the treatment begins and ends (as the skin cools and re-warms), and an area of numbness that returns to normal between 2 days and 3 weeks afterwards.  As with any minimally invasive body contouring technology, multiple treatments in the same area are required to get a great result. 

5) CoolTone for Body Contouring

CoolTone is the newest non-invasive body contouring tool at our practice, and one that I am personally pretty excited about!  It uses electromagnetic stimulation to give your abdominal, gluteal, or thigh muscles (other treatment areas coming soon) a intense 30-minute workout, with the result being visible toning and strengthening.  This is a perfect solution for anyone who wants firmer abs, tighter glutes, or more defined thighs! 

CoolTone treatments begin with a series of four 30-minute “workouts” performed over a 2 week period, with subsequent maintenance treatments performed on a quarterly to monthly basis.  I recommend that any necessary fat reduction be done prior to muscle toning, which is why I encourage pairing CoolSculpting with CoolTone for best results.

Cooltone Services in Columbus

In my many years as a fitness competitor, I always had trouble with my abdominal region, and I can honestly say after my first series of four treatments I have never seen my midsection look better.  I am a strong believer in CoolTone’s technology!
