What New Orleans area patients can expect before and after Juvéderm injection


Dr Lupo provides Juvederm Treatment
Injectables such as Juvéderm have become increasingly popular for patients in the New Orleans area who want to turn back the hands of time and fill specific lines and wrinkles on the face. Additionally, Dr. Mary Lupo of the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology can also utilize Juvéderm for augmenting the lips, adding volume to the hands, and even softening the appearance of depressed acne scars on the face. This non-surgical option for facial rejuvenation is popular because it is affordable, effective, and can provide patients with a way of reducing the signs of aging without undergoing plastic surgery.

Juvéderm is made of hyaluronic acid. This substance is naturally occurring in the body and it is easily absorbed. It also attracts water, which makes this gel a wonderful injectable used for filling areas of concern. It is injected directly into the fine lines and wrinkles that appear due to aging and sun damage, and it allows patients the opportunity to take control of skin laxity.

Patients who visit Dr. Mary Lupo often ask her questions about Juvéderm injections and the use of other dermal fillers for restoring youthfulness. Many patients also ask about what to expect before and after their injections have been completed.

Prior to having injections completed, patients must first be deemed appropriate candidates by Dr. Mary Lupo. Patients are encouraged to schedule a consultation visit with Dr. Mary Lupo, which may include an examination to determine if Juvéderm is the best anti-aging method. Then, before the injections are done, patients are educated on what to expect. Patients are encouraged to avoid using aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications a week to 10 days before their injections to reduce the likelihood of bruising. Injections should be avoided if patients are dealing with herpes simplex (cold sores).

After injections have been administered, patients are encouraged to use cold compresses on the area for the first few hours. Mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort around the injection site may be noticed but is typically mild in nature. It is safe and appropriate for patients to use makeup to camouflage these concerns if they need to work or socialize.

Review From Phuong N.
The best dermatologist in all of the Louisiana easily. She’s is very knowledgeable and can help you with your skin conditions. Make sure you tell her everything and don’t be shy because she moves fast, and you may forget to tell her something. But all in all I highly suggest her.
