Everyone’s facial structure is different including their lip shape and size. “Ideal lips” are proportionate to one’s overall facial structure, where the ideal upper lip is usually about 40% of the total height of the lips and the ideal bottom lip is about 60% of the total height. In order to achieve ideal lips, some people may benefit from lip enhancement with Restylane Silk.
Restylane Silk is the first and only FDA-cleared product to enhance the mouth area by increasing the volume of patients’ lips and smoothing wrinkles.
On February 4, 2015, Dr. Lupo appeared on WWL to discuss the benefits of this new lip enhancer, which helps patients look younger in a subtle, natural way.
As a leader in the aesthetic dermatology community for more than 30 years, Dr. Lupo was selected by Galderma, the makers of Restylane Silk, as one of the few physicians in the country to use their new FDA-cleared injectable filler at this time. In this pre-launch phase, Dr. Lupo is using the Restylane Silk product to train other physicians and to provide feedback to the company.

Do you believe in love at first sight? According to the study* “Looking and loving: The effects of mutual gaze on feelings of romantic love,” researchers found that when two subjects exchanged a mutual unbroken gaze for two minutes with a stranger of the opposite sex, they reported feelings of love for each other.
Turns out the old saying may be true, so keep your eyes looking young and fresh, and your Valentine will continue to fall in love with you every day!
- Injectables, lasers and chemical peels prevent wrinkles and dark circles to keep the skin around the eyes smooth and younger looking.
- Latisse enhances the eyes with longer, thicker lashes to create a beautiful frame.
- Eye creams help to reduce puffiness, dark circles and fine lines.

Congratulations to Courtney, one of our front desk receptionists who primarily works at checkout, for being named our Employee of the Month! She has selected Nectifirm as the February Product of the Month. Courtney is excited to try Nectifirm because she has seen firsthand how well the product works on our patients. When patients return time and time again to purchase the product, she can see smoother, tighter skin on their neck and jawline. While Courtney is only 24, she wants to use Nectifirm as a preventative.
Nectifirm cream is formulated to help skin appear more firm and lifted, reduce the appearance of rough crepey skin and dramatically lessen the look of fine lines and wrinkles. With a proprietary blend of bamboo, silica, English pea extract and glucosamine, these powerful ingredients are designed to rejuvenate your neck area by treating it differently than the skin on your face. Key ingredients such as antioxidants and vitamins C and E help skin appear brighter and more even-toned.
When you purchase Nectifirm in our office, you will receive 10% off this product through February 28, 2015, while supplies last.
Dr. Lupo was recently featured on the Plastic Surgery Channel, where she joined other top physicians to discuss several aesthetic topics. Click here to view Dr. Lupo’s segments.
While Dr. Lupo and Dr. Holcomb are specialists for the health and beauty of the skin, hair and nails, both of our doctors also have training in internal medicine. Here at the Lupo Center, a patient’s medical health is just as important as the health and appearance of the skin.
One way that we can help with our patients’ overall heath is by offering an Omega-3 Index Report and PRN Omega Benefits dietary supplements. Taking PRN Omega Benefits can help raise an Omega-3 Index level, which in turn helps to reduce the risk for certain diseases such as heart disease, stroke, dementia and depression.
Studies have shown that most Americans have low levels of omega-3s in their blood and would benefit from an increased intake of EPA+DHA by 2000-3000 mg per day. Although this can be accomplished by eating more oily fish, dietary supplements are usually necessary to achieve this level of EPA+DHA intake. For example, a four-capsule-per-day regimen of PRN Omega Benefits is equal to 37 cans of tuna per week, and PRN Omega Benefits doesn’t contain the impurities of many fish.
The only way to know how the body will respond to an increased intake of EPA+DHA is to measure the Omega-3 Index level before and three to four months after taking PRN Omega Benefits. Once a desirable Omega-3 Index level is reached, patients should re-check their values every six months.
Over 1 million people have used the Omega-3 Index Report, which is simple, safe and only requires one drop of blood. To learn more about the Omega-3 Index Report and PRN Omega Benefits dietary supplements, contact our office today.
