What results can New Orleans patients expect from a chemical peel?


Patients in the New Orleans area who want to achieve amazing results by rejuvenating their skin may want to consider the benefits of a chemical peel. Chemical peels use specific ingredients to help provide rejuvenation of the skin cells by removing the dull upper layer. In turn, this can provide patients with:
  • Less noticeable fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improved tone and reduced skin discoloration
  • Diminished age spots and sun damage
  • Improvement in dull or rough skin
  • Improvement in conditions such as acne
Dr. Mary Lupo of the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology is a board certified dermatologist who can provide her patients with a wide variety of chemical peels. There are several types available, including superficial peels, medium depth peels, and peels that are more aggressive. Most patients will benefit from superficial peels, which also have less recovery time and downtime and are more comfortable for the patient.

Chemical peels may include ingredients such as:
  • Glycolic acid
  • Jessner's solution
  • Salicylic acid
  • Trichloroacetic acid (or TCA)
  • Phenol
Chemical peels are performed in the dermatologist's office rather quickly and efficiently. The skin is cleansed and the mixture of ingredients is applied to the skin. The peel is left on the skin for a specific period, typically just minutes, and is then removed immediately. Cold compresses are used to soothe the skin, and the dermatologist may apply topical creams or lotions to also help cool and protect the skin.

After the peel, patients will notice some redness and peeling of the skin. The old skin will come off and the newer, more youthful skin will come forth during the skin cell turnover process. Over the course of several days, patients will see more beautiful texture, tone, and anti-aging benefits.

Patients need to take great care of their skin after a chemical peel to avoid any type of infection or problem. Dr. Mary Lupo educates her patients before, during, and after their chemical peel about what to expect, how to take care of their skin post-procedure, and when to call her office with concerns and questions.

Review From Vanessa V.
Dr. Lupo is truly amazing. This was my first time with filler and not only did she ease my fears but also gave me the most beautiful result. She used just enough to accentuate the contours of my lips and face. Also, she used a product on me called Aqua Gold which gave me wonderful results. The tone, texture, firmness, and overall appearance of my skin was greatly improved. When I left her i felt absolutely FLAWLESS! I highly highly recommend her and her team!
