What results will New Orleans area patients see from SilkPeel treatments?By Dr. Mary Lupo
SilkPeel is a type of microdermabrasion that uses a special treatment device with a diamond head to exfoliate the skin. At the same time, it infuses special serums into the skin to treat several different problems while hydrating the skin. Most patients are encouraged to schedule several treatment sessions over time for the best results, typically six sessions scheduled two to four weeks apart. Even patients with sensitive skin can have the treatment adjusted to their skin type for optimum results.
SilkPeel results can be dramatic. Patients who have struggled with acne and pigmentation concerns are often excited to see the transformation of their skin. Patients can incorporate SilkPeel treatments into their current skin care regimen and enjoy long-lasting results. Regular appointments should be made to maintain the newly transformed skin for years to come!
Dr. Mary Lupo of the New Orleans area uses this state-of-the-art machine for patients of all ages. Treatment times are relatively short, with facial treatments lasting approximately 20-30 minutes a visit. Patients are comfortable during their treatment and local anesthetics are not necessary for SilkPeel sessions. Patients experience no downtime, though their skin may be pink and somewhat sensitive and tight for the remainder of the day. This gentle treatment requires a series to get maximum results, usually five to eight visits.
Patients who are not candidates for treatment are those who have undergone serious therapies such as Accutane and should wait a specific period before having SilkPeeltherapies done. Patients with active cold sores, herpes lesions, diabetes, or an autoimmune disease should discuss this with Dr. Mary Lupo before treatment.
