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 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
