Available treatment for skin discoloration concerns in New Orleans


It is not unusual for Dr. Mary Lupo of the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology to speak to patients in the New Orleans area about pigmentation and skin discoloration concerns. There are many reasons why patients may be experiencing changes in their skin’s color. Some of the more common reasons include:
  • Melasma
  • Rosacea
  • Acne
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
  • Post-folliculitis
  • Hyperpigmented scarring
  • Sun spots / age spots
  • Dermatitis
  • Eczema
  • Injuries (burns, bug bites)
Dr. Mary Lupo is a board certified dermatologist who understands how some of these skin discoloration concerns can result in lowered self-esteem and confidence. This is why she offers many treatment options for patients who are ready to take charge of their skin discoloration and seek effective therapies to reduce them and bring back their skin’s natural beauty.

Skin discoloration treatment varies greatly depending on the concern. Patients are encouraged to contact the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology to receive a thorough examination and a proper diagnosis of their condition before determining what treatment option is best for them. A diagnosis of the condition will also allow patients to understand what caused the discoloration and pigmentation issue and find an effective way to reduce or eliminate it.

Dr. Mary Lupo has many cosmetic, medical, and laser dermatology services available for patients in her practice which may be used for reducing skin discoloration and may include:
  • Chemical peels
  • Diamond Glow
  • Microdermabrasion/dermabrasion
  • Topical therapies
  • IPL (Intense pulsed light) therapies
  • Laser therapies such as Fraxel, Clear+Brilliant, Permea, Fractional CO2 and Laser Genesis
  • Professional skin care products
There is no “one size fits all” solution for patients with hyper- or hypo-pigmentation issues. Some patients may have to go through many different treatments before finding the one that works best for them.

Speaking with a board certified dermatologist is the best way to get started learning more about the discoloration concerns on your skin.

Reading these previous reviews I decided to weigh in - I've been seeing Dr. Lupo for 20 years now, beginning with injections to reduce my leg veins, then went on to treatments for increasingly maturing skin. I appreciate Dr. Lupo's matter of fact advice and approach. I appreciate that she never 'over does' anything so that my husband never suspects that I've had any procedure/treatment. I guess that is the main thing. Occasionally I wish she had done more, but I always look much better, and doing too little is WAY better than doing too much. I trust her advice.
