Silk Peel™ in Lafayette, LA

Dr. Louis G. Mes, board-certified plastic surgeon, is the area's recognized expert in Silk Peel™ treatments whom residents in Lafayette, Lake Charles, and the surrounding communities trust for their aesthetic surgery needs.

If you have stubborn acne, an uneven skin tone because of dark spots, or fine lines due to sun damage, then a Silk Peel™ may be the solution for you. Silk Peel™ is a breakthrough skin treatment using Dermalinfusion™, which exfoliates while infusing a serum directly into the skin. The serum contains nutrients your skin needs as well as ingredients to treat your specific skin condition. This method is far superior to topical skin treatments that just lie on top of the skin. With Dermalinfusion™ technology, the serums go deep into the skin's surface to cleanse, nourish, and treat your skin. Best of all, Silk Peel™ is non-invasive, and sessions last only 20minutes, which means you can come to our office during your lunch hour and go back to work feeling and looking refreshed.

Who Is a Candidate for Silk Peel™ Treatments?

Unlike some chemical peels, Silk Peel™ is suitable for people with dark complexions. Dr. Mes recommends Silk Peel™ treatments for the following conditions:

  • Stubborn acne
  • Lightening areas of hyper pigmentation (dark spot on skin)
  • Fine lines and wrinkles 

If you have a sunburn or use tanning creams on a regular basis, have a recent skin infection such as cold sores, or use retinol, you may need to wait before coming to see Dr. Mes for treatment. If you want to see if a Silk Peel™ is the right option for you, call 337-504-4336 to arrange a consultation with Dr. Mes or to discuss Silk Peel™ treatment with a knowledgeable member of his staff who can answer many of your questions.

What Is Involved in a Silk Peel™ Treatment?

Before Your Appointment

You will need to stop using retinol-based treatments and tanning creams for a week before your session.

The Procedure

The Dermalinfusion™ device gently removes dead skin cells, excess oil, and other impurities from your skin while infusing a serum selected for your specific skin type and condition deep into your skin. The procedure is painless, and most patients find the treatment relaxing and refreshing. The session lasts about 20 minutes, and you can immediately resume your daily routine.

After Treatment

You will need to use a gentle cleanser on your skin recommended by Dr. Mes. Additionally, you will need to wear a sunscreen that has an SPF of at least 30. For the best results, Dr. Mes recommends six treatments scheduled every two weeks. The results of Skin Peel™ last several months.
