3 Treatments to Get Glowing Skin By the New Year

A 2020 poll discovered that 60% of Americans aren’t happy with the appearance of their skin. With concerns ranging from fine lines to uneven pigmentation, redness and generally dull skin, the majority of us want skin that looks and feels better.

Fortunately, there are several minimally invasive skin procedures available to those who wish their skin glowed more.

In this article, leading reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Derrick Gale discusses three skin treatments available to those who wish for glowing skin in the New Year.  

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels use a solution on the skin that removes the outer layers of dead skin cells and stimulates the production of new, vibrant skin cells. The resulting exfoliation improves the texture and appearance of the skin, giving it a smoother, more youthful, and glowing appearance.

Chemical peels come in three different strengths—mild, moderate, and deep—each varying the depth of penetration into the skin.

  • Mild peels, or superficial peels, are the gentlest and can be used to eliminate fine lines, uneven skin tone, and sun damage.
  • Moderate or medium peels are stronger and can be used to improve the appearance of deeper lines, scars, and uneven pigmentation.
  • Deep peels, also known as phenol peels, are the strongest and can be used to improve the appearance of severe wrinkles and uneven skin tone.

All peels result in more vibrant, glowing skin, but which peel best suits you will depend on your aesthetic goals. A consultation with Dr. Gale will help you determine which is the best option for you.


Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses a device with fine needles to create controlled, microscopic injuries to the skin.

By inflicting micro-injuries on the patient’s skin, microneedling stimulates the production of collagen and elastin—proteins that help support the skin and give it structure and elasticity. By doing this, microneedling can improve skin tension and pigmentation, resulting in a more vibrant, glowing complexion. 


Facials involve a variety of different techniques and products to clean, exfoliate, and nourish the patient’s skin. The goal of a facial is to improve the appearance and health of the skin by eliminating skin blemishes and dead skin cells and giving the skin a deep clean and moisturizing, to make the skin smooth and vibrant.  

Similar to chemical peels, there are different types of facials that can be customized based on a patient’s specific needs and aesthetic goals. For some patients, a basic facial involving a cleanse, exfoliation, and moisturizing the skin will suffice. In contrast, a more advanced facial may require additional steps such as extractions (removing blackheads and other impurities), a mask, and a massage.
