Start the New Year by Reviving Your Skin With a Chemical Peel

Years of sun exposure, the normal aging process, and exposure to environmental elements can leave your skin looking dull and much less healthy than it could be. To get your radiance back and to treat a variety of common skin problems, a custom-designed chemical peel may be just the thing that breathes new life into your skin. 

At MiKO Med Spa in Beverly Hills, California, Dr. Michael K. Obeng, a renowned plastic surgeon, personally designed the chemical peels that his highly trained aesthetic specialists use to rejuvenate your skin. If you have lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, or acne scars, start the new year by reviving your skin with a customized chemical peel. 

Shed some skin

Chemical peels take exfoliation to a whole new level. They are a great way to shed the old outer layer of skin and reveal a new, younger-looking complexion. 

When you shed some skin, you also take the lines, wrinkles, and acne scars with it. Your skin tone improves, and all the little imperfections related to aging, acne, and other skin problems, appear less noticeable.

As an added benefit, once the outermost layer of skin peels off your face — the most common area for a chemical peel — your skin cells begin to produce more collagen and hyaluronic acid. Collagen and hyaluronic acid are plentiful when your skin is younger, but production decreases with age. Replenishing collagen and hyaluronic acid means your skin looks rejuvenated, hydrated, and more vibrant. 

Reduce sun damage and hyperpigmentation

Depending on your needs, we recommend the type of chemical peel that helps minimize imperfections, including sun damage and hyperpigmentation, or discoloration. Chemical peels use different types of acid solutions that are safe, yet effective, including glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and lactic acid. 

Mild chemical peels work well to reduce the appearance of sun spots, freckles, and areas of darker pigmentation. Certain types of chemical peels can even help reverse melasma, a hyperpigment disorder that causes uneven skin tone. 

Reduce past, present, and future acne

Want to control breakouts or reduce the appearance of scarring from past acne blemishes? Chemical peels can help. Your customized peel unclogs your pores, removes blackheads, and leaves behind nourishing ingredients that help fade acne scars. 

Salicylic acid and lactic acid chemical peels effectively clear acne and other types of acid help fade existing scars. 

Make your skin care products work even better

Another benefit of chemical peels that you might not have even thought about is that once your shed the outer layer of dead skin cells, your skin is smoother and more receptive to skin care products. Moisturizers, for example, are better able to sink into your skin because your fresh, radiant skin absorbs them more easily when there’s no dead layer of old cells in the way. 

Minimize the appearance of under-eye circles

Did you know that a customized chemical peel can not only reveal brighter, firmer, younger-looking skin, but it can also minimize the appearance of dark, under-eye circles? Certain types of acid are safe for this delicate area of your face, and many people see a profound difference after their first chemical peel.

If you’ve been wondering about how chemical peels work, and if this treatment is right for you, there’s no time like the beginning of a new year to take action.
