As skin loses elasticity with age, the lines that run from the sides of the nose toward the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corner of the mouth toward the chin (marionette lines) appear more noticeable. Because this area around the mouth has lot of movement, we never want to treat it in a way that takes away the natural expressions and flexibility.
We are excited to introduce you to Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne, two new hyaluronic acid gel fillers that are designed to maintain movement and expressions for the lines and folds around the mouth. As a trainer for both products, Dr. Lupo was one of the first dermatologists in New Orleans to use Refyne and Defyne.
The two fillers differ from each other in their amount of flexibility and support. Refyne is the better choice for finely etched lines, whereas Defyne is better for deeper folds. Both give support to the skin without firmness and provide soft, flexible results that look natural with facial expressions.
Refyne and Defyne treatments require minimal downtime allowing patients to return to daily routines following the procedure. Typical results can last up to 12 months with full correction.
Members of ASPIRE Galderma Rewards can earn points from Dysport, the Restylane family of fillers and Sculptra for future savings on these treatments. New members of ASPIRE can receive a $20 treatment certificate instantly! Sign up today!

If you are looking for a general dermatologist in New Orleans, you found it in Dr. Mary Lupo at Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology. Dr. Lupo has over 30 years of experience in dermatology. In addition to her practice, she is a clinical professor at Tulane University. General dermatology is a broad term and covers many different skin issues. Some of the issues include:
- Acne – Acne occurs when pores become packed with dead skin cells and oil from the sebaceous gland, causing a breeding ground for bacteria. It affects men just as often as women. While acne is not something that is dangerous to your health, it can be incredibly embarrassing. We treat acne with a three-step approach. The first step is to get rid of the acne with our customized treatment process. Next, we switch gears and focus on the prevention of future acne. The final step is to prevent or treat any scarring that may have occurred.
- Skin cancers – The most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States is skin cancer. UV exposure causes a genetic change in the skin cells, resulting in rapid growth, which can form actinic keratosis and eventually turn into tumors. There are three major categories basal cell, squamous cell, and melanoma. Skin cancer is nothing to take lightly. Have your skin checked annually for the various types of skin cancers.
For patients in New Orleans who are looking for a general dermatologist, give us a call at (504)577-3047. With our excellent Board-certified physicians, we can treat a multitude of skin issues. In addition to larger issues listed above we also treat issues like psoriasis, warts, hair and nail conditions, excessive sweating and many more conditions. No matter what issues you our experiencing Dr. Lupo has the knowledge and expertise to help.
Having unwanted hair can be burdensome and embarrassing. In the past, there have been a few options. You could use a razor, you could wax or pluck unwanted hair, but the problem with these methods is they can leave nasty rashes and bumps. Worst of all, these options are temporary. There is a better permanent solution. Laser hair removal is the answer to your hairy problem. Dr. Mary Lupo at Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology in New Orleans offers the best in laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal is popular in the United States and is extremely safe and effective. It works by sending concentrated light into hair follicles. Laser hair removal is done over a series of a few sessions because hair grows in different stages. Most patients experience the permanent hair loss in three to seven sessions.
Since laser hair removal targets the darker pigmented hair it allows the surrounding area and skin to remain unscathed. It is not recommended to tan before or during treatments because the darker skin can inhibit the absorption of light energy.
Here at Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology we understand that there are many options when it comes to laser hair removal. The benefit to using our service as opposed to a laser center or med spa is that our services are performed by licensed professionals so that the absolute best results are achieved. Dr. Mary Lupo is a highly-trained dermatologist with the skills and history to give the best laser hair removal for her patients in New Orleans. If you have any questions or concerns about laser hair removal schedule a consultation. Give us a call at (504) 777-3047 today. We would love to meet you and will be glad to answer any questions you may have.
Microneedling treatments are used to rejuvenate the skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines, scars, pore size and stretch marks while improving uneven skin texture. Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses very fine needles to create tiny punctures (microchannels) in the top layer of the skin. These microchannels trigger the body to create new collagen and elastin as well as allowing skin care products to penetrate better into the skin.
With the production of new collagen (the protein that keeps the skin thick and firm) and elastin (the protein that keeps the skin tight), the skin regains a fresher, younger-looking appearance.
From now until the end of March, if you purchase a package of 3 microneedling treatments, you will receive 25% off of a skin care regimen to optimize your microneedling treatment for better, longer-lasting results.
Contact our office today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Lupo
Must prepay for the package by March 31, 2017, and the series of 3 microneedling treatments must begin before April 1, 2017 and be completed by June 30, 2017.
