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. In 1995, she founded Dr Mary Lupo Skin Care System, innovative skin care products for her patients and web clients. She is often quoted in national beauty magazines on various dermatological topics from acne to aging skin, from skin cancers to fillers and cosmeceuticals. She has appeared on E! Entertainmen, the Food Network, CNN news, and The View as well as local CBS, NBC, and ABC affiliates in New Orleans.

General Dermatologist in New Orleans

General Dermatologist in New OrleansIf 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.

Best laser hair removal New Orleans

Best laser hair removal New OrleansHaving 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.

25% off Skin Care with Microneedling Package


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.
