What are the benefits of Juvéderm for New Orleans area patients?

Back to Juvéderm Home Page

Dr Lupo describes benefits of Juvéderm Turning back the hands of time for patients in and around the New Orleans area has never been easier! Dr. Mary Lupo at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology provide patients with the solutions they need to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face. For many patients, plastic surgery may not be appropriate for mild signs of aging, while also extremely expensive and invasive. This is when patients speak to Dr. Mary Lupo about the benefits of cosmetic injectables such as Juvéderm.

Juvéderm is one of many dermal fillers readily available at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology in the New Orleans area. Juvéderm is formulated with hyaluronic acid, a substance that is known for attracting water. This gel formula is injected directly into fine lines and wrinkles on the face to provide instant volume and reduce their depth. This smooths out the skin and provides better texture while also reducing the unwanted signs of aging.

Dr. Mary Lupo is often asked by her patients about the benefits of Juvéderm injections. Juvéderm is highly desirable for many reasons. First, Juvéderm injections are safe. This formula has been approved by the FDA (in 2004, Dr. Lupo was on the clinical trial) for cosmetic use and it continues to be used today with little to no side effects other than the possibility of bruising, swelling or firmness at the injection site for one-four days after treatment.

Second, Juvéderm is made of hyaluronic acid. This substance is naturally occurring in the body. It is safe for injection and is, over the course of time, absorbed by the body and flushed through the system.

Third, Juvéderm is affordable. The cost of injections is determined by the amount needed for the treatment area. Dr. Mary Lupo will only inject what is necessary to achieve results, and has the experience to provide amazing results without over injection.

Fourth, Juvéderm doesn't require patients to experience any downtime. Appointments are fast and easy, and done in just a few minutes. This allows patients to leave the dermatology office and go back to their day, requiring little interruption in their active, busy lifestyles.

Avoid these medications for at least two weeks prior to injections: Aspirin or Ibuprofen, Fish Oil, Vitamin E, “G” supplements (ginko, ginseng, garlic), St. John's Wort and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications like Celebrex, as they may cause thinning of the blood.

Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology
Review From Anne R.
Dr. Mary Lupo and her staff performed Fraxel laser on my face and I had incredible results. The service, which is the brand Fraxel, isn't the least expensive in the city, but when done correctly by a professional like Dr. Lupo, the money is well spent. For me, I had issues with age spots and melasma, which were significantly diminished in one treatment--as well as fine lines around my eyes. My face looked young and bouncy and bright. For Dr. Lupo, this is a craft and she spends time with her patients, giving them the best results possible. I'd highly recommend her and this service to anyone.
