If you’re planning a spring getaway, you may be tempted to get a base tan before you leave. Tanning in a tanning bed won’t prevent sunburn. Time spent in a tanning bed will increase your risk of developing skin cancer. To keep your skin looking and feeling its best, use a daily sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and don’t forget to reapply, especially if you’re in direct sunlight!
With the VISIA Complexion Analysis, we are able to identify the skin’s characteristics on all layers: top, bottom and in between. The VISIA system’s multi-spectral imaging and analysis provides a clear, multi-dimensional portrait of the individual aspects of a person’s complexion, which contribute to overall appearance. The analysis is able to measure and identify spots, wrinkles, texture, pores, UV spots, brown sports, red areas and bacteria in the skin.
The basis for this is a camera unit that sends high-quality photographs to a high-speed computer. The computer calculates both the standard and UV photos by means of the analysis software. With the VISIA analysis, we are able to provide the comprehensive data needed for an overall skin care rejuvenation plan based on your specific complexion requirements. The photographs and analysis take about 15 minutes. The VISIA screening is complimentary for all patients. Call today to schedule an appointment for a VISIA Complexion Analysis.
Here at the Lupo Center, we offer a variety of anti-aging and skin care treatments from injectables and lasers to chemical peels and facials. Our in-office treatments offer a great way to prevent or reverse the signs of aging, but in order to get optimal results from these treatments, patients need to care for their skin at home as well.
Overall skin rejuvenation is essential for everyone, and our doctors and trained staff can help select an individualized at-home skin care program. We understand that home life can sometime be hectic, but it’s important to have a few basic steps in an at-home skin care regimen.

An Exclusive Lupo Center PRE-ReJUVEnation Treatment
For more than 30 years, Dr. Lupo has pioneered the concept of combination therapies to help her patients achieve a natural, meaningful improvement in their appearance. Her goal with the PRE-ReJUVEnation Treatment is to prevent or delay the signs of aging skin in patients who are 40 years of age or younger by combining the benefits of skin tightening and facial resurfacing. With early prevention, patients can eliminate the need for aggressive surgical procedures in later years.
Prejuve Energy Facials are individualized and customized for each patients needs. The most popular Prejuve treatments is the combination of Exilis Elite’s skin tightening and Laser Genesis’ facial resurfacing for overall anti-aging and enhancement of the skin.
The Exilis Elite technology is a monopolar radiofrequency device that causes both shrinking of loose tissue immediately, as well as long term collagen production that lifts and tightens loose skin over time. It is beneficial on areas such as the jowls, neck and eyebrows.
Laser Genesis is a multi-purpose solution for skin health and appearance. The facial resurfacing treatment protects the epidermis, while stimulating collagen production in the dermis to improve pores and texture. It is also shown to fade red and brown spots. It is beneficial for acne and mild acne scars and discolorations.
Prejuve Energy Facials can treat any skin type and require no downtime. Dr. Lupo individualizes each treatment so patients achieve optimal results.
