Turning back the clock with chemical peels in New Orleans, LABy Dr. Mary Lupo
Why chemical peeling is a good option for mature skinThroughout life, your skin is constantly renewing itself. As skin cells complete their lifecycle, they gradually rise to the surface. The uppermost layer of skin is composed of dead and dying cells, which are naturally shed. In youth, this process is usually very efficient, replacing damaged cells with new ones.
Over time, the cellular rejuvenation becomes less efficient. Skin becomes drier, collagen begins breaking down, and the cumulative effects from years of sun exposure begin taking a toll. Chemical peeling helps your skin repair itself by causing the rapid exfoliation of skin’s upper layers. As a result, it triggers natural healing processes that stimulate cell production and collagen repair.
A chemical peel can improve many common concerns associated with aging skin including:
- Dark spots – Although often called age spots or liver spots, these discolored areas usually result from UV damage.
- Fine lines and superficial wrinkles – Chemical peels help improve hydration and collagen, plumping the skin.
- Scars – Acne, minor skin injuries, and even insect bites can leave lasting marks. Often, chemical peels can reduce or eliminate these types of scars.
- Skin texture and complexion – Due to rapid skin rejuvenation, you will see a fresh, healthy layer appear on the surface very quickly.
