The quality of your facial skin is determined by healthy turnover of cells in the epidermis and dermis. Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian and his team of highly-trained dermatologists and skin specialists offer comprehensive skin treatments, surgical and non-surgical procedures, lasers, RF treatments, dermal fillers, and chemical peels that can dramatically improve your skin and give you a confident glow. Chemical peels are an important element in your monthly skin regimen and we are here to help you achieve the best skin possible.
Medical-Grade Chemical Peels
Chemical peels have been used in cosmetic dermatology for decades and most skin experts know that not all chemical peels are the same. Our Kare Beirut plastic surgery office offers medical-grade chemical peels that can dramatically improve skin quality. Dr. Karamanoukian has extensive knowledge in the use of chemical peels and has developed his own skin protocols using chemical peels to rapidly exfoliate the skin and establish healthy skin cell turnover. Chemical peels can be used to reduce acne breakouts, improve skin tone, reduce hyperpigmentation, and combat fine wrinkles.
These medical-grade chemical peels use higher potency acids to rejuvenate the skin, exfoliate debris and excess sebum, and stimulate collagen so that your skin can improve from the inside-out. Depending on the treatment purpose, Dr. Karamanoukian will custom-tailor a chemical peel to help you improve your skin. We will also recommend a skincare regimen that includes Melarase creams so that your home-regimen can complement the in-office treatments.
Hyperpigmentation is a common complaint in men and women who have lifelong exposure to the sun. Women, in particular, experience hyperpigmentation as a result of sun exposure and hormonal influences that occur during pregnancy and childbirth. Dark spots on the skin can be improved with a combination of lasers and chemical peels designed to remove dark pigmentation. Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian specializes in medical-grade chemical peels that can dramatically improve skin tone and dark pigmentation. These peels have variable downtime ranging from a few hours to ten days, depending on the depth of the chemical peel. We use chemical peels at Kare Beirut to treat the following skin conditions:
- Hyperpigmentation and melasma
- Fine wrinkles and loss of collagen
- Sun damage
- Oily skin
- Cystic acne
- Scar hyperpigmentation
