IPL & Vascular Lasers

“The most popular light treatment because in 3-5 sessions, with no downtime from work or your life, the skin is brightened and lightened.”
- Dr. Lupo
Ongoing advances in the field of dermatology have brought about significant increase in treatment options. There are so many effective, non-invasive cosmetic treatments available today that it can be hard to imagine a single therapy solving multiple skin conditions. Dr. Mary Lupo believes this to be the case with IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light treatment. The first physician in Louisiana to incorporate this treatment into her practice, Dr. Lupo has consistently and successfully used IPL since 1999. Today, it continues to be one of the most popular treatment options at the Lupo Center.

There is a wide variety of skin problems that can be corrected with either IPL treatment or treatment with a vascular laser. At Lupo Center, we use the Excel V laser or IPL to target brown and red discoloration, facial veins, unwanted hair, acne scarring and more. Skin treated with IPL or vascular laser will become smoother in texture, and there will be a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, as well. Rosacea is another condition that can be significantly improved with light treatments, as medications alone rarely provide complete relief from symptoms such as redness and flushing.

IPL treatments differ from laser treatments, using broad band light energy from the visible and near-infrared light spectrum. Treatment with intense pulsed light is a safe and effective, non-invasive way to address photoaging. In fact, this form of skin rejuvenation is sometimes referred to as a “fotofacial” or “photorejuvenation.” IPL works by applying heat to tighten and shrink targeted blood vessels while simultaneously stimulating the production of new collagen for improved skin texture.

The gentleness of IPL and vascular lasers in the care of skin conditions allows patients to immediately return to their normal routine. There is no downtime and no side effects to either type of treatment, which may be performed on the same day as an important event or even during your lunch hour. It is possible to apply makeup immediately following a treatment session.

IPL and vascular laser treatments are ideal for many of our patients. We recommend that a good skin care program be instituted after treatment so that optimal results may be maintained for a longer period of time.

Dr. Lupo is fantastic! I've been a patient for 2.5 years and have always been 100% satisfied with her services! Her nurses and assistants always take my calls and return my messages before the end of the day regarding treatment questions or prescription refills. She is incredibly honest and won't perform any services that she does not feel are necessary, she also spends a large amount of time with me discussing any concerns with my skin and following-up with me post procedure. My skin is finally clear and I've achieved my goal of not having to wear makeup to cover a blemish. Not only is she amazing with fillers and skin treatment but she is very innovative on the medical side of dermatology. I feel very safe with her as my dermatologist and lucky to have her practice in New Orleans!
