Laser Hair Removal - Related Questions

Q. How does laser hair removal treatment work for patients in New Orleans and the surrounding areas?

A. It is common for patients who are unhappy with unwanted hair on their bodies to visit Dr. Mary Lupo. It may be hair on the face, underarms, bikini line, chest, back, or legs. Shaving, waxing, and plucking can be costly, time consuming, and just plain frustrating for many to do day in and day out. When seeking laser hair removal treatment, it is important that patients seek the care of a facility that has a Board Certified Dermatologist on staff to evaluate patients prior to procedures. This is when men and women may visit the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology to learn more about laser hair removal treatment. Patients in New Orleans as well as South Louisiana and the Gulf Coast will have a personal consultation completed by Dr. Mary Lupo and treatments by her trained dermatological staff.

Dr. Mary Lupo uses laser hair removal treatment to help patients address hair on the body that requires consistent, regular removal. By undergoing laser hair removal treatment, New Orleans patients will enjoy a significant decrease in hair growth, often lasting up to ten years! However, patients are educated thoroughly on what to expect with this treatment, as well as how to get the best results over time.

One important aspect of laser hair removal that patients need to understand is that this is not a one-time treatment. Laser hair removal requires that patients schedule several sessions over time to see drastic hair reduction. There is a reason for this. Hair grows in different phases, and the laser treatment can only target hair that is actively growing. Because of this, one treatment will not target all hair follicles, thus will not result in complete removal. When patients schedule several sessions over time, they will be able to address most of the hair follicles that have reached the active growth stage and can be targeted and treated with the laser device. This will provide the best long-term results.

Dr. Mary Lupo will consult with patients before they begin their treatments to determine if laser hair removal is right for them. They will learn about the costs associated with treatment, and find out if they are a viable candidate with their skin type and hair color. Lighter hairs will not respond as well to treatment as the laser targets the pigmentation in the hair, so people with darker hair and fair skin will often benefit best from this particular service. Dr. Mary Lupo will give a full examination for patients interested in the treatment and talk about what can be expected.

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.
