Acne is a common skin condition that is surrounded by many questions. Though millions of people have, at some point, experienced acne, the general consensus may be that acne is a teenage problem. In addition to who may be affected by acne, there are also myths about the potential causes of acne, how acne can be treated, and where on the body acne may develop.

The truth is that a person may develop acne at any age. From one person to another, acne may appear on different areas of the body, and will look different, as well. Blemishes may develop as pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, cysts, papules, or nodules. Though many people may find an adequate solution to blemishes in over-the-counter facial cleansers and creams, there are instances in which acne requires medical treatment for correction.

If skin does not respond to over-the-counter remedies within about a month of use, or if skin becomes irritated from such products, professional treatment should be sought. Acne not only has a negative emotional impact, but can also lead to scarring if the follicles affected by blemishes rupture. Dr. Mary Lupo is a New Orleans dermatologist with years of experience treating a wide variety of skin conditions. Acne is a common problem for which the Lupo Center has several solutions.

One popular acne treatment we offer uses laser technology. Isolaz is an effective acne treatment that uses broadband light in conjunction with a vacuum to cleanse the pores and fight bacteria. The vacuum in Isolaz loosens and extracts excess oil, dirt, and blackheads from deep within the pores. The broadband light targets acne-causing bacteria, destroying these microorganisms while also reducing facial redness caused by inflammation. The last step of an Isolaz treatment, Profusion, is designed to nourish the skin and aid in the absorption of topical acne treatments.

Administered in our comfortable office, Isolaz can:
  • Reduce the number of acne spots
  • Remove debris, oil, and blackheads
  • Reduce pore size
  • Improve the texture of skin
Isolaz is a comfortable, easy acne treatment that is suitable for all skin types. There is no downtime associated with this treatment. You can return to work or your normal routine immediately following treatment. Leaving our office, our patients feel refreshed and enjoy a healthy, radiant glow. Break free from acne.

Dr. Lupo discusses the benefits of Isolaz

As a board-certified dermatologist, I see a lot of acne and I see it in all age groups. Most of the time, medical treatment is sufficient to get acne under control. Sometimes, however, patients are intolerant. To the medications or they have medical conditions that prevents me from using certain medications. For those patients, I often choose ISOLAZ. ISOLAZ is a device that combines suction to deep clean the pores with blue light to actually kill the acne causing bacteria, along with pulsed light which acts as an anti-inflammatory to decrease redness, and improve healing. ISOLAZ is just one of the many options that we have here so that we can individualize your acne care and choose what is best for you.

Review From Vanessa V.
Dr. Lupo is truly amazing. This was my first time with filler and not only did she ease my fears but also gave me the most beautiful result. She used just enough to accentuate the contours of my lips and face. Also, she used a product on me called Aqua Gold which gave me wonderful results. The tone, texture, firmness, and overall appearance of my skin was greatly improved. When I left her i felt absolutely FLAWLESS! I highly highly recommend her and her team!
