At the Lupo Center, our goal is to provide each patient with natural-looking improvements to their appearance to make them look and feel like their personal best. One way we do this is by customizing each patient’s treatment whether it’s with injectables, lasers, skin care products or a combination protocol. This video shows how Dr. Lupo individualizes a dermal filler treatment by using both a needle and a cannula.
When treating a small, precise area with dermal filler, such as the lips, fine lines or a scar, a needle is usually best. When a patient is looking to enhance a larger area, a cannula may be the better option. It is more flexible and can be used with a feathering-like method under the skin to plump up and contour areas on the face, jawline, chest, hands and even sagging skin above the knees! A cannula may also be used in the lips when creating an overall fuller appearance.
Both a needle and cannula are safe and effective options when in the hands of an expert injector. We find that treatment with a cannula is a little more comfortable and has less bruising. Because a cannula has a blunt tip, a needle is used to make an insertion point on the surface of the skin. This insertion point reduces the number of sticks in a treatment and allows the longer cannula to reach more areas. The blunt tip of a cannula also makes it more difficult to puncture blood vessels thus reduces bruising. With both a needle and a cannula, we use topical numbing to make treatments more comfortable.
Each patient is unique and requires an individualized protocol when it comes to dermal fillers. Our board certified dermatologists are able to assess the skin to determine the best injectable method. To learn more, contact us at email@example.com or (504) 777-3047.

Fraxel Dual is our go-to non-invasive laser resurfacing treatment to fight the signs of aging and more. This laser creates micro-injuries in the skin that forces a healing process to stimulate new collagen and elastin. Most commonly used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, irregular pigmentation and texture, Fraxel can also be used to treat scars, stretch marks and has been known to decreases the formation of certain skin cancer.

Our certified laser technician has been treating patients with Fraxel for more than 15 years, so she is able to provide a very safe and effective treatment. The treatment can be done on most skin types and on many parts of the body including the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, abdomen and legs.
For optimal results, we recommend medial-grade skin care products before and after the Fraxel treatment. Sunscreen is a must and other beneficial products include a vitamin C (see below), peptides and growth factors.
January’s Product of the Month is Revision C+ Correcting Complex 30%. This is a great complementary product for the Fraxel treatment and is beneficial to all patients year round. It helps brighten and even the appearance of skin tone with its powerful antioxidant boosters. These boosters reduce the appearance of skin discoloration by defending and correcting the skin-damaging effects of free radicals generated by urban dust and high-energy visible light (HEV or blue light).
