New Orleans area dermatologist explains Radiesse fillers


Many of the signs of aging are due to the gradual loss of volume and skin elasticity. This is caused by the breakdown of the body's natural supply of collagen. Collagen helps maintain the volume of the face associated with youthfulness. As patients age, their skin becomes loose, and volume in the face is lost, which can result in an older, tired appearance. Patients in the New Orleans area often visit the team of the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology to talk about anti-aging solutions that are much less invasive than plastic surgery. Many are introduced to Radiesse fillers.

Radiesse is a type of dermal filler that is used specifically in areas such as around the mouth and chin. It is made of calcium hydroxyapatite, which provides a unique formula that can stimulate the production of collagen in the areas in which it is injected. The microspheres naturally dissolve into the skin while the collagen fibers created remain. This improves volume in the treatment area for up to a year or longer in many of our patients.

Radiesse is a popular filler because it provides long-term results and requires fewer injections over time. However, patients may want to undergo annual injections of Radiesse fillers to slow the signs of aging and maintain collagen. Dr. Mary Lupo of New Orleans can consult with patients to determine if this filler is appropriate for their needs. Other injectables are available through her practice, including Sculptra, Juvéderm, and even Botox.

During a consultation appointment, patients can speak with a board certified dermatologist about the many ways they can correct fine lines and wrinkles and address volume loss, which contributes to the signs of aging. Radiesse may be the solution. Contact the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology in New Orleans today to schedule your visit. Dr. Mary Lupo gladly welcomes new patients to her practice and she is excited to offer a variety of solutions for our patients to achieve the youthful look they've always want to obtain.

Review From Vanessa V.
Dr. Lupo is truly amazing. This was my first time with filler and not only did she ease my fears but also gave me the most beautiful result. She used just enough to accentuate the contours of my lips and face. Also, she used a product on me called Aqua Gold which gave me wonderful results. The tone, texture, firmness, and overall appearance of my skin was greatly improved. When I left her i felt absolutely FLAWLESS! I highly highly recommend her and her team!
