Many people ask, 'How much are chemical peels in New Orleans?'By Dr. Mary Lupo
How effective are chemical peels?Chemical peels are extremely effective at addressing problems of the skin such as:
- Discolored or pitted acne scars
- Active acne
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Texture and tone concerns
- Sun damage
- Skin pigmentation irregularities
How do chemical peels work?Chemical peels work by taking off the upper layer of damaged or dead skin and allowing the fresh skin below to be revealed. Newer skin is more youthful and beautiful.
How much are chemical peels?Chemical peels vary in cost depending on the ingredients used. More aggressive peels cost more, but provide amazing results in just one treatment as opposed to several, more mild treatments.
What should I expect after the chemical peel?Aftercare following a chemical peel will vary, depending on the strength of the peel used. In most cases, patients will have to apply creams onto the skin to facilitate healing and protect the newer skin underneath from sun damage. Recovery time varies from a week or longer.
