What are chemical peels and how can New Orleans, LA patients benefit from them?


The skin takes a beating over the years and patients begin to experience uneven skin tone and texture, spotting, sun damage, and pigmentation concerns. Dr. Mary Lupo understands the desire to achieve a more beautiful, youthful appearance, and many patients who want to achieve better tone and texture of the skin can do so with the use of chemical peels.

Patients in the New Orleans, LA area can be treated with a chemical peel to rejuvenate the way they look. This minimally invasive treatment resurfaces the skin using chemical products that remove the damaged upper layer of the skin’s surface. There are various types of chemical peels from lighter, gentler peels to more aggressive peels with different techniques. Lighter peels offer better exfoliation and patients may experience a day or two of recovery and healing, while more aggressive peels get deeper into the skin and require more recovery time-up to a week or more.

Chemical peels are used for one or more of the following concerns:
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Freckles and age spots
  • Sun spots
  • Active acne blemishes and/or scarring
  • Irregular pigmentation of the skin
  • Sun damage
  • Scarring
  • Rough texture
Dr. Mary Lupo consults with patients to determine what they want to achieve with their skin care treatment. It is important for her to fully understand the expectations of her patients and find ways to help them reach their goals in the most affordable, effective manner. Many techniques are available to assist in resurfacing the skin and renewing one’s appearance, so it is important that patients are well educated on the various methods of skin renewal to determine if chemical peels are right for them.
