New Orleans patients who are considering plastic surgery, consider Sculptra insteadSome patients who want to bring fullness and better skin texture back to their face or those who want to eliminate wrinkles and folds in the skin often think they only have two choices – plastic surgery or bottles of expensive creams that may, or may not, help.
Dr. Mary Lupo of New Orleans’ Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology wants her patients to know that there’s another option. Turning to a trusted dermatologist can give you the results you want, quickly and effectively without undergoing invasive and painful cosmetic surgery. For 30 years, Dr. Lupo’s work has been helping patients feel better, look younger, and get back their self-confidence without surgery. Using a combination of preventative care and corrective procedures, patients see a reduction in wrinkles, improved skin elasticity, fuller lips, and a more contoured face.
One treatment that works well for many of Dr. Lupo’s patients who want to increase volume gradually across a large treatment area is Sculptra. Unlike traditional filler such as Juvéderm or Restylane, Sculptra can be used to firm and lift the entire face. The only parts of the face it can’t be used on are the lips and forehead. Sculptra is often used to fill out the face for patients who appear tired or thin due to weight loss or illness. It is also approved for facial lines and folds.
Sculptra treatment is gradual. Dr. Lupo cautions that patients who expect to see a noticeable difference following one session could be disappointed. Instead, the product works with your own collagen by giving a gradual softening over the course of the three to six months. However, the results are worth the wait. Once achieved, results last for two years – longer than any other product on the market.
Finding a dermatologist who you trust is the first step in improving your appearance. Under the care of a qualified and experienced professional, you will feel confident that you’re getting the right treatment and that it’s being performed the right way. Many fillers and injectable treatments need to be applied differently. Dr. Lupo has that skill and expertise to ensure that you get the results you want.
