Why medical dermatology is important to the people of New Orleans
Medical dermatology may include any of the following conditions:
The city of New Orleans is an incredible cultural mecca. The metropolitan area alone is home to well over one million individuals of nearly every ethnic background imaginable. The South Louisiana and Gulf Coast climate is classified as “humid subtropical” with an average temperature of 78 degrees and a whopping 62 inches of rain annually, but cold temperatures and even snow are not out of the question. The rich variety of skin types and pigmentation coupled with a climate that is just as unique can add up to a variety of skin conditions for the people of the New Orleans area. Proficient medical dermatology isn’t a luxury – it is a necessity for the health and beauty of their complexions.
Acne is a common concern in a sultry environment. Excess sebum (oil) and dead skin cells form a plug in skin pores allowing bacteria to thrive. That leads to inflammation and infection – pimples, pustules, cysts, blackheads, and whiteheads. Since hormonal changes also influence the occurrence of acne, it can affect women and men at nearly any age. Dr. Mary Lupo
and her team at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic & General Dermatology
deliver professional skin care advice and modern treatment methods that halt acne before it becomes socially embarrassing or leaves permanent scars. The practice also offers a number of effective scar remediation therapies.
With more than 3.5 million cases of skin cancer diagnosed annually in the United States, the concern is widespread. However, sunny environments increase risk. Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Lupo is well qualified to detect potential skin cancers early, make accurate diagnosis, and recommend the most effective course of treatment.
Medical dermatology encompasses thousands of other conditions of the skin, hair, and nails. Every day, the Lupo Center helps patients manage rosacea, melasma, eczema, psoriasis, moles, warts, excessive sweating, nail fungus, hair loss, dandruff, and so much more. While most are not life threatening conditions, they are physically and emotionally uncomfortable, having a huge impact on quality of life. The Lupo Center’s team handles each situation discreetly, with a sensitive combination of professionalism and compassion.
