VI Peel® in Lafayette, LA

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

If you have considered chemical peels to improve the tone and texture of your skin but hesitate to try a treatment because you do not want to wait for the results, then a VI Peel® may be an option for you. This medium-depth peel uses a combination of TCA, vitamin A, vitamin C, salicylic acid, and Phenol to treat scars, dark spots, fine lines, and other imperfections at their source, the cells of your skin. The procedure takes only 20 minutes, and you can see the results within a week.

Who Is a Candidate for VI Peel® Treatments?

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

  • Stubborn acne scars
  • Lightening areas of hyper pigmentation (dark spots on skin)
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reducing the effects of rosacea

If you want to see if a VI Peel® is the right option for you, call 337-504-4336 to arrange a consultation with Dr. Mes or to discuss VI Peel® treatment with a knowledgeable member of his staff who can answer many of your questions.

What Is Involved in a VI Peel® Treatment?

A VI Peel® treatment lasts only 20 minutes. After your face is cleansed, the VI Peel® solution is applied to your skin. You might experience some tingling or a mild burning sensation, but most people find the procedure to be painless. You will be provided with a special moisturizing cream for you to use at home. Your skin will peel for the next three to four days, and it will be healed by day seven. Dr. Mes recommends maintenance treatments every three to four months.
