Cosmetic Dermatologist in 70124 area describes injectable treatmentsInjectable treatments are a wonderful method of addressing signs of aging such as folds, lines, and wrinkles around the face. Instead of having to undergo plastic surgery to lift the skin, patients can use injectables as a “liquid facelift.” Dr. Mary Lupo is a cosmetic dermatologist in the 70124 zip code who provides new and existing patients with injectable therapies for anti-aging solutions. Below are the three most common types of injectables.
Neuromodulators work by reducing muscle contractions. When they are injected into specific areas of the face, especially the upper third, they can smooth away folds in just a few days and patients can enjoy the results for several months before reinjection is required. Commonly known neuromodulators include Botox and Dysport.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin and attracts water, which makes it the ideal ingredient in dermal fillers. Injectables such as Juvéderm and Belotero are placed in strategic locations to provide the optimum results. They provide instantaneous results and can last six to nine months depending on the brand, location, and the patient’s body and response to injections.
For more long-lasting results, patients may speak to the team of The Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology about collagen builders. A perfect example is Sculptra, which is injected into areas such as the cheeks to stimulate collagen production and soften the appearance. They add volume to the specific areas and provide a more youthful appearance after just a few injections. Sculptra is known for lasting up to two years or longer and can slow the signs of aging. Dr. Mary Lupo also offers Juvederm Voluma, an immediate cheek lifter that has improvement lasting over 24 months will full correction over 2 sessions. She has been trained in using this product from Allergan, the company that manufactures it.
Neuromodulators, hyaluronic acid fillers, and collagen builders are the primary methods of addressing the signs of aging without surgical intervention. Dr. Mary Lupo of the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology suggests patients in and around the South Louisiana and Gulf Coast areas schedule a consultation to determine which of these are best suited for their needs.
