Blue Peel® in Lafayette, LA
Dr. Louis G. Mes, board-certified plastic surgeon, is the area's recognized expert in Blue Peel® treatments whom residents in Lafayette, Lake Charles, and the surrounding communities trust for their aesthetic surgery needs.
If you have dark splotches on your skin, fine wrinkles, or acne scars that bother you and affect your self-esteem, but you want to avoid surgery, then Blue Peel® treatments may be the solution for you. Blue Peel® is a medium-depth chemical skin peel that smoothes the texture of your skin and evens the tone of your complexion. Unlike other medium-depth peels, Blue Peel® has a blue tint that allows the doctor to control the depth that the peel penetrates. With Blue Peel®, your complexion will have a radiant and even tone and fine lines will disappear.

Unlike some chemical peels, Blue Peel® is suitable for people with dark complexions. Dr. Mes recommends Blue Peel® treatments for the following conditions:
- Stubborn acne scars
- Lightening areas of hyper pigmentation (dark spots on skin)
- Fine lines and wrinkles

What Is Involved in a Blue Peel® Treatment?
Typically, a Blue Peel® treatment session lasts about 30 to 60 minutes. After cleansing your face, the doctor will apply the Blue Peel® solution to your face. You may experience a mild burning sensation. As the treatment solution penetrates your skin, your skin develops a bluish tint that lasts 12 to 24 hours. Additionally, you may develop some minor swelling that disappears within a few days. About two to three days after your session, your skin will begin to peel, which will last about a week and then your skin will be completely healed. The tone and texture of your skin will continue to improve for the next four to six weeks.
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 several sessions. The results of Blue Peel® treatments last several months.
