Turning back the clock with chemical peels in New Orleans, LA

By

Chemical Peels in New Orleans Doctor Dr Mary Lupo in New Orleans
Chemical peels are among the most versatile dermatology procedures in New Orleans, LA. Specially formulated peels are often recommended for therapeutic purposes, such as the treatment of acne. However, skin peeling is also a wonderful option for general rejuvenation and anti-aging purposes. As popular as lasers are these days in experienced hands, peels are often a less expensive option. Dr. Lupo has been doing chemical peels since 1983.

Why chemical peeling is a good option for mature skin

Throughout 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.

Due to the highly customizable nature of chemical peels, the details of treatment and healing time will vary. If you want to find out more about how a chemical peel can help you, call Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology at (504) 777-3047 and schedule a consultation.

Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology
Review From Anne R.
Dr. Mary Lupo and her staff performed Fraxel laser on my face and I had incredible results. The service, which is the brand Fraxel, isn't the least expensive in the city, but when done correctly by a professional like Dr. Lupo, the money is well spent. For me, I had issues with age spots and melasma, which were significantly diminished in one treatment--as well as fine lines around my eyes. My face looked young and bouncy and bright. For Dr. Lupo, this is a craft and she spends time with her patients, giving them the best results possible. I'd highly recommend her and this service to anyone.
