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. 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.
