Obagi Blue Peel

Obagi Blue Peel Los Angeles


Chemical peels are one of the most exciting cosmetic treatments available in aesthetic plastic surgery and cosmetic dermatology. Skin aficionados know the full benefits of chemical peels in terms of their benefits on skin complexion, skin tone, and skin tightening. Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian, a double board certified plastic surgeon in Los Angeles, can tailor a specific chemical peel regimen that incorporates your skin type, complexion, and degree of wrinkling.

Obagi blue peel can help erase dark spots, fine wrinkles, and uneven complexion related to skin discoloration, melasma, and dark scars.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian explains how the Obagi Blue peel can help your skin.



Patients presenting to our office often have misconceptions about chemical peels and the associated downtime of the procedure.  The term, chemical peel, is really a generic term that incorporates many different procedures.  The differences between the different chemical peels has a lot to do with how strong the acid peel is and how many passes are administered onto the skin.  For example, two passes of a trichloroacetic acid 30% peel are much more invasive than 5 passes of a Glycolic Acid 50% peel.  It has a lot to do with the pKa, or strength, of the acid itself.  Thus, with proper knowledge of chemical peels and a proper discussion of alternatives, our office can provide you with options for chemical peels that can improve your skin and cause little to no downtime, if required.


Many years ago, the benefits of chemical peels were discovered among plastic surgeons and dermatologists.  As the years have passed, many new discoveries have been made about chemical peels and there overall benefits on the aging skin.  In many ways, chemical peels have withstood the test of time and have been shown to be more effective than lasers and even surgery for some conditions.


Light Chemical Peels: 


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian has specialized expertise in chemical peels and can recommend a specific cosmetic chemical peel that maximizes results in your particular case, regardless of your skin color. Many savvy cosmetic patients request light chemical peels to buff their skin before a major event, wedding, engagement party, or birthday party.  These light chemical peels are referred to as stimulatory chemical peels because they upregulate and revitalize your skin before an important event.  The result...less acne breakouts, a decrease in pore size and caliber, even skin tone, and a more radiant skin complexion.


One of the most commonly performed chemical peels in our Los Angeles plastic surgery office is known as the Kare Radiant Peel, which incorporates several key ingredients to improve skin complexion.  Our Radiant Peel can be used on African American skin, olive skin, and fair skin types, making it one of the most versatile chemical peels in the cosmetic market.  The chemical peel can help target acne breakouts, large pores, an uneven skin complexion, dull skin, and fine wrinkles.  In fact, patients request the chemical peels on a monthly basis in order to revitalize their skin and stimulate a healthy skin glow.  The Kare Radiant Peel can be used in conjunction with Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, and other facial treatments. Learn more about Chemical Peels at Chemical Peels
