What New Orleans, LA patients need to know about laser hair removal


LA Laser Hair Removal Doctor Dr Mary Lupo in New Orleans
Unwanted body hair is one of the most common complaints of men and women in New Orleans, LA, and beyond. Laser hair removal can provide an effective solution with lasting results in just a few treatments. At Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, we use the latest technology to provide the safest and most reliable results possible.

Better lasers for better results

Laser hair removal is more popular than ever, and with very good reasons. When the technology was initially developed, it was ideal for only a very small percentage of patients. Through advances in laser technology, the procedure has evolved to the point that nearly anyone is a good candidate.

Coarse, dark colored hairs are most responsive to laser energy, and generally require fewer treatments. However, even fine or light colored hairs can be treated, as long as there is at least a small amount of pigment. During your consultation, we will discuss the expected number of sessions and outcome of treatment. For patients with grey or completely white hairs, we will discuss alternatives.

Safety of laser hair removal

The effectiveness of treatment relies on the fact that pigment readily absorbs laser energy, causing a reaction in the hair follicle. Unfortunately, it can also affect skin pigment, which may lead to burns. In early versions of the technology there was no good way to selectively target follicles.

Modern laser technology is capable of treating any skin type and color safely. However, the secret to success lies in the extreme precision and sophisticated adjustability of today’s devices. Therefore, safe and effective treatment requires the skills of a trained and experienced dermatologist. Dr. Lupo has invested in the latest technology for all skin types and all ethnic populations for safe, effective and comfortable hair reduction.

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.
