Chemical Peels

“Chemical peels are still one of the best options for patients wanting to improve the color and texture of the skin. There are peels for everything from acne and rosacea to photoaging.”
- Dr. Lupo
One of the treatment options offered at Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology in New Orleans is the chemical peel. This form of treatment has been shown beneficial for a wide range of patients. Because chemical peels are customizable and range in strength from mild to deep, they are complementary to a variety of complexions and skin types. Whether you want to correct blemishes or wrinkles, or just want to refresh your healthy glow, Dr. Lupo can customize a chemical peel to meet your needs.

A chemical peel is a way to gently resurface the skin by removing the top layers using a mild to moderate chemical solution as opposed to mechanical or heat resurfacing such as microdermabrasion or laser treatment. The laying down of new skin makes pores appear smaller, and can greatly diminish the appearance of fine lines, acne, and discoloration.

Ideal for the correction of several skin concerns, chemical peels are designed around each patient. Your experienced dermatologist will manipulate the various aspects of your treatment to produce the greatest effect. The variables of chemical peel treatment include the strength and type of acid used, and the amount of time an acid solution remains on the skin. Through precision planning and application, Dr. Lupo achieves beautiful results.

A chemical peel may produce virtually no flaking, or may require a few days of recovery based on the type and strength of the resurfacing solution. Standard glycolic peels tend to be quite mild, allowing the patient to resume normal activities while practicing adequate sun protection. Stronger peels will likely cause the skin to peel and flake for a few days, during which time it is even more important to stay out of the sun.

Dr. Mary Lupo has been treating the signs of aging for several years. In our office, we maximize the potential of chemical peel treatment by designing a suitable pre- and post-peel skin regimen before any treatment takes place. We may recommend Botox as a pre-treatment to chemical peels, so that treated skin heals smoother.

Post-treatment, it is important to keep the skin moist in order to prevent hyperpigmentation, infection, and redness. Sunscreen should be applied daily, and flaking skin should never be picked. Because optimal results are achieved by sun avoidance after treatment, the winter months may be the ideal time to schedule chemical peels at Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology.

Performed properly by a highly trained professional, a chemical peel is safe and effective with little to no side effects. Contact our office today to schedule your skin rejuvenating treatment.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. Specifically Olivia at front desk and Kristi with the laser. No matter how many times you call or the simplicity of your request, Olivia takes patients very seriously and makes you feel as though your concerns are very important! Kristi takes time to get to know patients and each appointment seems like a continuation of the last!
