What happens before during, and after Belotero injections, and what results can New Orleans patients expect?By Dr. Mary Lupo
Belotero is a dermal filler created from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring protein and component of the skin. It helps by attracting water to smooth out fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face, and it can provide a more youthful appearance for several months after the initial injection. In fact, patients see immediate results as they leave the dermatologist’s office!
Many patients want to learn more about what happens before, during, and after an appointment with Dr. Mary Lupo for injectables.
Patients are required to consult with Dr. Mary Lupo to determine if they are an appropriate candidate. This may include an examination and information regarding one’s medical history. Any medications that are being taken regularly should also be disclosed to the doctor.
Once patients have worked with Dr. Mary Lupo and determined that Belotero is the best solution, they are made comfortable in the treatment chair. Topical anesthetics may be used for comfort. Dr. Mary Lupo carefully and precisely injects Belotero into the areas of concern to smooth out the lines, wrinkles, and folds.
The best thing about dermal fillers and injectables is the ability for patients to go back to their daily routine without interruption. While there may be some redness and swelling at the injection site for a few hours, this will go away and can easily be concealed with makeup when necessary. Patients are given after-care instructions by Dr. Mary Lupo when they leave their appointment and are encouraged to call with any questions or concerns that may arise.
Our mission at the Lupo Center is to provide patients with innovative, effective and ethical care to make each person look and feel their personal best. To fulfill our goal, we provide state-of-the-art medical, surgical and cosmetic treatments to all patients.
