Lasers & Devices

Laser dermatology is changing skin care in New Orleans

Treatments using Lasers & Devices may include any of the following procedures or devices: A laser optically amplifies light, focusing the energy into a very tiny spot. Albert Einstein established the theory of laser energy in 1917, and frankly, the idea was scary to many people. Today, we take laser technology for granted in CDs and DVDs, barcode scanners at the grocery store, law enforcement devices for speeding, and a multitude of other everyday applications. However, you may not realize the extent to which lasers are changing the field of dermatology and advancing skin care for women and men in the New Orleans area, so let’s take a look…

Some of the most groundbreaking lasers have been developed to address skin problems and deliver gorgeous complexions. Each piece of equipment represents a significant investment of money and training time, and no one device serves all dermatological purposes. Dr. Mary Lupo of the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology brings customized skin care to patients in the Southern Louisiana Gulf Coast area with a full suite of safe, FDA-cleared lasers and light devices, and other innovative therapies to help give patients the beautiful skin they desire. Here are just a few examples of the laser and devices treatments available at the Lupo Center:
  • The Fraxel Restore Dual Wavelength system is one of the most versatile lasers used at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic & General Dermatology. The doctors use it to non-invasively resurface skin, improving the appearance of wrinkles, sun spots, age spots, and melasma. It is used to remove actinic keratosis (a pre-cancerous skin condition), and to remediate acne and other types of scarring. It penetrates deeper layers of skin and stimulates natural production of collagen, without harm to the surface.

  • Treatments with the Clear + Brilliant fractional laser fight signs of aging and restore natural glow to the complexion. It brightens skin tone by refreshing from the inside out.

  • The Active/Deep FX Fractional CO2 Resurfacing laser is ideal for more dramatic resurfacing on the face, neck, and chest – with a little extra recovery time.

  • The Lumenis M22 is an Intense Pulse Light (IPL) device that is a non-laser, broad band, light treatment using energy in the visible and near-infrared light spectrum. It is best as a treatment for overall photoaging, often called photorejuvenation or fotofacial.

  • Using VariLite and Cutera 532 nm lasers, the Lupo Center doctors are able to precisely target and eliminate vascular lesions and even very small spots of pigmentation on all skin types and ethnicities.

  • The CoolTouch CT3 Plus non-ablative laser utilizes a specific light wavelength that reduces acne inflammation and improves mild wrinkles. It is safe for all areas of the body and all skin colors.

  • Laser hair removal liberates patients from daily shaving routines or painful waxing procedures.

What dermatology laser options can patients expect at your practice?
I usually review with every patient the option from the more aggressive to the less aggressive and to the minimally invasive.

One of the nice things about the Lupo Center is we have several different lasers; we don't just have one laser and try to fit a square peg into a round hole.

What types of laser treatments do you offer at your practice?
- Fractional Co2 Resurfacing (most aggressive one)
- Fraxel Dual (can be done more or less aggressively)
- CoolTouch laser
- Excel V laser
- IPL (non-laser light device)
- Radiofrequency microneedling
- Regular microneedling
- Light chemical peels
- Clear and Brilliant (less aggressive Fraxel that has no downtime)
- Dermal infusion (combination between microdermabrasion and a light chemical peel)

The spectrum of lasers available is so varied that the patient can decide to have one aggressive laser treatment or a series of less aggressive laser treatments.

I appreciate her ability to not only evaluate my external skin issues but also utilize her knowledge as Internalist to evaluate the underlying causes of my skin condition. She listens to my concerns and creates skin care plans that addresses my needs with astounding results. I love her!!! My only issue was the incredibly long wait. My appointment was for 3pm and I didn't get in to see her until 4:45pm. So, I took 1 star from my review. However, this is the first time I've had to wait this long and I've been coming to get for 4 years.
