About lupocenter

Nationally acclaimed non-surgical dermatologist Since 1983, nationally acclaimed and board certified dermatologist Dr. Mary Lupo has been at the forefront of non-surgical skin rejuvenation. She began using innovative combination protocols for her patients that included collagen fillers, light chemical peels, and topical products such as Retin A and alpha hydroxy acids with sun protection to make the skin look years younger. This trend is now the cornerstone of non-surgical care along with the additions of Botox to relax hyperactive muscles. It is not the use of one particular filler or laser, but rather the application of these tools in tandem that achieve the best possible result. The years of teaching other physicians, serving on advisory boards and performing clinical trials on the latest techniques have resulted Dr. Lupo being on the cutting edge of non-surgical skin rejuvenation. Dr. Lupos is also a Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Tulane Medical School. She graduated from Tulane Medical School in 1980 and did internal medicine at Ochsner Foundation before entering the dermatology program at Tulane Medical School where she served as Chief Resident in her final year and was awarded the Peterkin Award for her original research in skin lipids and inflammation in patients with atopic dermatitis. She is the past-president of the Women’s Dermatologic Society, Louisiana vice-chair for the Dermatology Foundation and member of the Annenberg Circle. She is on numerous committees for Women’s Dermatologic Society, American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, and American Academy of Dermatology. As director of Tulane’s Resident Cosmetic Clinic, she has taught fillers, Botox, sclerotherapy, chemical peels and laser therapies since 1984. She has been a founding director of The Cosmetic Boot Camp, an innovative CME program that teaches core aesthetic physicians the latest techniques for aging skin correction. Dr. Lupo is now a clinical instructor for Allergan, where she helped launch Juvederm to Australian physicians in 2007. She has acted as a consultant over the years for Inamed, Bristol Meyers Squibb, Playtex, Kao Brands (Jergens, Curel, Ban, and Biore), Allergan (both skin care and Botox Cosmetic divisions) Dermik, Galderma, Stiefel, Neocutis, Ortho-Neutrogena, LaRoche Posay, and Philosophy.

Entertainmen, the Food Network, CNN news, and The View as well as local CBS, NBC, and ABC affiliates in New Orleans.

New Orleans dermatologist offers chemical peels for effective treatment of skin concerns

Dr. Mary Lupo Offers Chemical Peels Treatment
Patients with a variety of skin conditions in New Orleans often work with a dermatologist to find the best way to treat them. In many cases, patients may find that chemical peels are their best option. Chemical peels are facial treatments that are performed by our team of skilled profess, at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology.

Chemical peel process

Chemical peels are performed in the practice by our dedicated team. Dr. Mary Lupo starts with a consultation appointment to discuss with patients the concerns they have about their skin. She may recommend a chemical peel or alternative options, depending on their specific needs. If patients decide to move forward with a chemical peel, the skin is cleansed and a special combination of ingredients are applied to the face. They are left on for a specific period, either several seconds or several minutes. This greatly depends on the type of chemical peel and the strength. Then the peel is cleansed from the face and patients are released with post-care instructions.

What is the purpose of a chemical peel?

The purpose of chemical peels is to remove the dead upper skin cells and stimulate the formation of new skin cells. This can address a variety of issues for our patients including:

  • Acne
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Poor texture and tone

Patients with several issues can treat many of them with a chemical peel.

New Orleans area dermatologist proudly offers Juvéderm injections for antiaging

Dr. Mary Lupo Offers Chemical Peels Treatment
Turning back the hands of time is a common request by patients who visit Dr. Mary Lupo and her team at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology in New Orleans. While plastic surgery is an option, it is typically not the only one – especially when patients are in the earlier stages of aging. Anti-aging treatments are available to patients ready to make a difference in their appearance. A common suggestion for fine lines and wrinkles is dermal fillers such as Juvéderm.

Juvéderm described

Juvéderm is one of several dermal fillers available at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology. Dermal fillers are typically formulated with hyaluronic acid, which is a protein that attracts water. This results in volume that can “fill” fine lines and wrinkles in the face. When a Board-certified dermatologist administers Juvéderm or other dermal fillers with hyaluronic acid, patients will notice smoother, more youthful-looking skin immediately following their treatment.

What are the benefits of Juvéderm?

Juvéderm has been used for many years by men and women, and has many advantages:

  • Juvéderm provides a less invasive way of treating fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Juvéderm can be used on the face as well as the hands.
  • Juvéderm is affordable and reliable.
  • Juvéderm can be combined with other cosmetic injectables for amazing results!

The staff of the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology is proud to provide Juvéderm along with many other dermal fillers and cosmetic injectables.

New Orleans area dermatologist offers Juvéderm Voluma for antiaging

Dr Lupo - April 2017 Juvéderm Voluma for antiaging
Aging skin can take a toll on one’s self-confidence. Men and women who are unhappy with volume loss and skin laxity may feel as though plastic surgery is their only line of defense. However, Dr. Mary Lupo of and the team of the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology in New Orleans provides solutions such as Juvéderm Voluma.

What is Juvéderm Voluma?

Dr. Mary Lupo uses Juvéderm Voluma to replace volume loss caused by the natural loss of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are naturally present in the skin and provide patients with the full, voluminous look that makes the face look youthful. After the age of 30, the skin begins to lose collagen and elastin naturally, and the face begins to experience skin laxity. To combat this, injectables such as Juvéderm Voluma can be used.

The Juvéderm Voluma process

Juvéderm Voluma injections are performed right in the office. Patients rest easy in the treatment chair for their evaluation, during which Dr. Mary Lupo will determine if patients are appropriate candidates. Once it is decided to move forward with the injections, patients undergo a series of injections into the areas of concern. Over time, collagen and elastin are restored and patients look years younger without the need for invasive plastic surgery.

New Orleans area dermatologist discusses the benefits of Dysport

Dr Lupo - April 2017 Benifits of Dysport
Patients in the New Orleans area who are interested in rejuvenating their appearance are encouraged to book an appointment with Dr. Mary Lupo of the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology to learn more about the advantages of using Dysport.

Dysport explained

Patients who are unhappy with fine lines and wrinkles sometimes feel the only way to turn back time is with expensive and invasive plastic surgery. Cosmetic dermatology allows doctors to inject medication into the areas of concern for almost immediate impact. One injectable used by Dr. Mary Lupo and her team is Dysport. Dysport reduces the contraction of the muscles where it is injected. This means that the skin can relax and smooth out – eliminating unwanted wrinkles and folds.

Where on the face can Dysport be used?

Dysport is best used in areas such as the eyes for crow’s feet, between the eyebrows to treat glabellar lines, and on the forehead to treat deep forehead wrinkles and folds.

What are the benefits of Dysport?

  • Dysport is similar to other popular neuromodulator brands such as Botox and Xeomin
  • Dysport can be done right in our office in a minimally-invasive manner
  • Dysport results can be seen within days
  • The results of Dysport can be seen for many months following the initial treatment
  • Dysport is affordable for many of our patients

New Restylane Refyne & Restylane Defyne Fillers: Natural Expression in Motion

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!
