Preparing for laser hair removal treatment in Louisiana

Laser Hair Removal in Louisiana
Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments offered at Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology in New Orleans, Louisiana. Unlike shaving, plucking, or waxing, the hair won’t grow right back. In fact, most patients maintain silky smooth skin with no more than an annual touchup. If you would like to enjoy the benefits of being hair-free and care-free, how should you prepare?

Educate yourself

Laser hair removal is a wonderful treatment, but it is not an instant solution. Laser energy affects active follicles, but a certain percentage are inactive at any given time. A series of carefully planned sessions will be needed, with the entire process taking several months. It is important to have realistic expectations and knowledge of the procedure. If you have questions, please ask.

Choose the right provider

The safety of laser treatment depends on the quality of the technology and skill of the technician. We work with state-of-the-art-lasers, and adhere to the highest standards of safety and quality for all skin types. You can feel confident trusting the expertise and experience of Dr. Lupo.

Prepare your skin

You can take a few simple steps in the weeks leading up to your appointment that will help ensure an efficient and comfortable treatment.

Avoid sun exposure for at least six weeks, because tanning adds pigment to the skin. Preferably, wear protective clothing such as long pants if you plan to have your legs treated. If the area must be exposed, use generous amounts of high SPF sunscreen. If you currently pluck or wax the area, you will need to stop about six weeks before laser treatment begins. These methods pull out the root, which is what laser energy targets.

If you have questions or would like to schedule an appointment, call us at 504-777-3047.

Discovering your best skin with the help of your dermatologist in New Orleans, LA

Best Dermatologist New Orleans La

The cosmetic benefits of dermatology are well known, but many people underestimate the medical benefits. Here are the five best reasons to see your dermatologist in New Orleans (even if you don’t have wrinkles)

  • Skin cancer screening –Self-checks at home and annual screening by your dermatologist takes very little time from your busy schedule. Just a few minutes can save your life, because the success rate of melanoma treatment largely depends on how early it is diagnosed and treated.
  • Diagnostics – What is that bump? What caused that rash? The answers to questions such as these can be very important. Not only is skin the largest organ in the human body, but it is also one of our primary defenses against toxins. Skin problems are often signs of disease, allergies, or other conditions. Many medical problems are first seen with changes on the skin.
  • Controlling skin disease – Acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, and other skin conditions can take a toll on your quality of life. Symptoms such as pain, itching, discomfort, and embarrassment can even interfere with routine activities. However, you don’t have to “just live with it.” With today’s wide range of treatment options, virtually any imaginable condition is treatable.
  • Customized skincare advice – From drugstores to specialty boutiques, you are literally faced with walls of skin treatments and products. Some contain allergens, impurities, or ingredients that can aggravate certain skin conditions. Some are inappropriate for your skin type, too harsh, or simply ineffective. Yes, there are a few gems, but finding them can be nearly impossible without the guidance of a knowledgeable professional.
  • Beyond the skin – One of the most common misconceptions about dermatologists is that they are exclusively skin doctors. The specialty also includes diagnostics and treatment of conditions affecting the hair and nails. From head to toenails, your dermatologist can help you stay healthy.

Fall Into Beautiful Skin for the Holidays

image011Laser and light therapies are a great way to rejuvenate the skin to diminish wrinkles, scars, pigmentation conditions and much more. However, after these treatments, the new skin is more vulnerable to sun damage if it’s not protected properly. The optimal time to receive laser and light therapy treatments is during the cooler months when there are less harmful sun rays, less outdoor activities and it’s the best time to wear full-coverage protective clothing.

From now until the end of December, ask our doctors or laser technician about a special promotion on skin care that is the perfect complement to your Fraxel, IPL or Excel V fall treatment. 

FRAXEL
image013-1With Fraxel, change isn’t drastic or scary – it’s just younger, natural-looking skin. We offer the most advanced
Fraxel Restore Dual Wavelength System for a customized treatment to better treat fine lines and wrinkles, surface scarring, pigmentation, sun damage and pre-cancerous actinic keratosis. Dr. Lupo and Dr. Holcomb choose to use the Fraxel system because of its very high safety record and proven results for all types of skin, and because it causes minimal disturbance to the patient’s everyday life during the course of treatment.

INTENSE PULSED LIGHT (IPL) and EXCEL V
image014Both Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Excel V are used to address several skin conditions including rosacea, acne, pigmentation disorders and sun damaged skin. They are used to improve the skin’s redness, texture and tone, and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Patients find these laser treatments are to be very simple and easy with visible improvement after a series of three to six treatments. IPL and Excel V are highly effective and safe treatments for the redness and vascular dilatation seen in rosacea that is not improved by topical and oral medications. There is no downtime after an IPL or Excel V treatment and makeup can be worn immediately after.

If you are interested in learning more about Fraxel, IPL or Excel V, contact our office to schedule an consultation with Dr. Lupo or Dr. Holcomb.
