Unwanted hair on the body can be costly and time-consuming to keep under control. Many patients find tweezing, waxing, and shaving to take much too much time. Instead, men and women often find laser hair removal to be a wonderful alternative.

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is an advanced method of eliminating unwanted hair on areas such as the:

  • Underarms
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Legs
  • Bikini area
  • Face

Dr. Mary Lupo is a Board-certified dermatologist who can work with patients to decide if they can benefit from laser hair removal. This treatment is available to patients of all hair colors and skin colors, unlike in the past when certain patients were deemed better candidates. The process of laser therapy takes time for full hair removal. One appointment will reduce the amount of hair in the area, while several can result in full treatment.

How many appointments will I need?

The number of treatment sessions for patients will vary, dependent on their hair’s response to treatment and the thickness of the hair. Thicker hair will require more treatments. Treatments are spaced out over several weeks to ensure the laser treats the hair in the active growth phase. Other hair that is not in this phase will not be affected. By treating every few weeks, our doctor can target all the hair in the cycle of growth. Patients seeking reduction of hair may just need one or two treatments.

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.
