The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery recently conducted a survey and found that most people who are interested in receiving a cosmetic treatment would choose their board certified dermatologist as their dermatologic surgeon. Respondents said the specialty in which a physician is board certified is the most important factor when contemplating a cosmetic procedure – more important than cost, physician referral or eight other choices.
We want to ensure you that both Dr. Mary Lupo and Dr. Kate Holcomb are board certified dermatologists who have specific education and training in a number of medical and cosmetic treatments and are up-to-date on the latest developments in the field of dermatology. While Dr. Lupo and Dr. Holcomb have gone through training, they are also qualified to train others.
Dr. Lupo has been a Botox Cosmetic trainer since 2002 and was on the original advisory board for Sculptra Aesthetic in 2003. She was chosen to be an FDA investigator for Juvederm in 2004, and she also participated in the FDA approval of Botox for the treatment of crow’s feet. Dr. Lupo is a certified trainer for Botox, Dysport, Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane and Sculptra, and she is the only physician in Louisiana that is certified to train other physicians on all six of these aesthetic procedures.
While serving in the military, Dr. Holcomb trained dermatology residents in medical and cosmetic dermatology at the National Naval Medical Center, and she trained family medicine residents medical dermatology at Camp Lejeune.
