Can Juvederm injections around the lips result in bruising?

Patients who want to combat the signs of aging are often interested in non-invasive ways to do so. This typically includes speaking with a Board-certified dermatologist at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic & General Dermatology regarding cosmetic injectables.

Cosmetic injectables include several different types of products that are injected into the skin or muscles to add volume and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, patients may also choose products such as Juvederm to address thin lips. While any injectable treatment may result in bruising or discomfort at the injection site, this is typically mild and temporary. Risk of side effects is minimized in the capable hands of an experienced dermatologist. Juvederm and all the injectables used by Drs. Mary Lupo and Katherine Holcomb at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic & General Dermatology are safe, effective, and approved for use by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Our team is educated on how to provide injections to achieve desired results while reducing the likelihood of side effects.

Juvederm is used on various areas of the face. Not only can it plump up the lips and give them a fuller appearance, but it can also treat parenthesis lines, the cheek area, and other fine lines and wrinkles around the face. Juvederm can be safely used in conjunction with other cosmetic injectables including collagen stimulators, neuromodulators, and other dermal fillers. In fact, Dr. Lupo and Dr. Holcomb can combine several treatments during one session to provide patients with an “injectable facelift” opportunity! We work closely with our patients to determine what they would like to achieve, and develop a treatment plan that works in line with their goals, budgets, and schedules.

New Orleans area patients who are interested in speaking with our team regarding injectables, such as Juvederm for the lips or other areas of the face, are encouraged to contact the Lupo Center for Aesthetic & General Dermatology today. The front office staff is friendly and welcoming, eager to speak with individuals who call 504-777-3047 to schedule appointments.

Can laser hair removal be used to address unwanted facial hair?

One of the most popular cosmetic treatments available at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology is laser hair removal. Laser technology has been around for many years and continues to be one of the best ways to address a variety of medical and cosmetic concerns. Special laser devices available at the practice of Drs. Mary Lupo and Katherine Holcomb provide patients with an effective and permanent way to address unwanted hair. Our team of professionals works closely with patients to help them determine if laser hair removal therapy is the best method for their skin and hair type, and desired outcome.

Laser hair removal can be used on both facial hair and hair on the body. Facial hair may include the beard, moustache, sideburns, or eyebrows. Wherever hair is present on the body, it can be treated with laser hair removal services at our practice.

Laser hair removal must be done in a series of treatments for optimum results. For patients seeking simple reduction of hair in a specific area, one or two treatments may be sufficient. However, full clearance requires patients to commit to a number of treatments to achieve the results they desire. The hair’s reaction to the laser device determines how many sessions may be beneficial. Additionally, sessions must be scheduled approximately six weeks apart to ensure hair is targeted during the growth cycle, for the most thorough reduction. The body continues to produce some new hair follicles over time, but new growth is typically thin and fine. Periodic touch-up appointments keep skin smooth and sleek.

If you live in the New Orleans community or surrounding areas and have considered the advantages of laser hair removal, our team is happy to introduce you to laser treatments that can provide amazing results. Dr. Mary Lupo and Dr. Katherine Holcomb are dedicated professionals who can administer services such as this with safety and effectiveness. At the Lupo Center for Aesthetic & General Dermatology, our Board-certified dermatologist can speak with you in regards to the best services for your specific needs. Contact our friendly, helpful front office team today by calling 504-777-3047 to schedule a consultation visit and initial examination.

Five reasons New Orleans loves laser hair removal

Hair. It is one of the great frustrations of life. While we worry that it will stop growing on our scalps, we spend endless hours trying to stop it in other areas. Unfortunately, do-it-yourself solutions for unwanted body hair are temporary. It will come back no matter how many times you shave it, wax it, tweeze it, or dissolve it with depilatory creams. No wonder so many people are turning to the one simple and effective long-term solution – zap it with laser hair removal.

The benefits of laser treatment for unwanted body hair include:

  1. Permanent hair reduction – Laser energy acts on follicles, inhibiting their ability to grow new hairs. Each session reduces the number of hairs in the treatment area. After a full series of laser sessions, virtually all hair growth is stopped. For most patients, an occasional touch-up is sufficient to keep the area smooth and hairless.
  2. Convenience – Forget cumbersome daily, weekly, or monthly hair removal routines. After your initial series of appointments, laser hair removal is virtually maintenance-free.
  3. No more stubble – Every temporary technique has that awkward in-between phase. You shaved this morning, but your skin no longer feels smooth. Or hair is growing back after waxing, but it’s not long enough to wax again. Since there is no re-growth after laser removal, there is no unsightly and uncomfortable stubble.
  4. Healthy skin – Laser hair removal is generally considered a purely cosmetic treatment. However, it can greatly benefit people with certain skin problems. Individuals prone to ingrown hairs or razor bumps often choose laser removal to avoid shaving. For people with extremely sensitive skin or conditions such as psoriasis or eczema, abrasion and minor skin injuries caused by pulling hairs or shaving can cause itching, inflammation, or trigger outbreaks. Laser treatment is a great way to avoid these problems.
  5. Cost effective – The upfront price of laser treatment may be higher than alternatives. However, if you add up the money spent on razors, waxing, or creams over time, you may realize that laser removal is more economical than you thought.
