How can Radiesse help patients in the New Orleans, LA area address fine lines and wrinkles?


Many people spend a lot of money on over-the-counter creams and lotions that are meant to slow the signs of aging. However, there is no “miracle in a bottle.” Skin laxity and the development of fine lines and wrinkles occur due to the loss of collagen, which causes the face to lose volume. This volume loss increases skin laxity, making the skin more prone to developing unwanted wrinkles, folds, and lines. To combat this, patients visit the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology in New Orleans, LA to learn about dermal fillers such as Radiesse.

Radiesse is an injectable filler made from calcium hydroxyapatite, which stimulates collagen production for more long-lasting results. This is achieved by the calcium-based microspheres, which can enhance a more youthful, healthy appearance.

Radiesse is very versatile. It is most commonly used on the folds from the nose to the mouth (nasolabial folds) or those from the mouth to the chin (marionette lines as well as the cheeks). Since it helps in producing collagen, it is recommended for patients who are experiencing loss of volume (lipoatrophy) in specific areas of the face, including the cheeks, nose, and chin. It has been FDA-approved for aesthetic improvements and continues to be a popular choice for many of the patients in our practice. It is considered the optimal filler for the back of the hands to hide prominent veins and tendons.

Radiesse is just one of many dermal fillers used in the practice of Dr. Mary Lupo. She provides patients with a variety of injectables including Botox and Dysport, which can also help in reducing the signs of aging on the face. Radiesse is different from other dermal fillers as it can help with collagen production, which patients begin to lose regularly around the age of 30. Radiesse is often Dr. Lupo’s choice for men since it is so robust.

If you live in the New Orleans area and you have considered the benefits of Radiesse and other injectables for cosmetic enhancement, contact Dr. Mary Lupo of the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology today to schedule a consultation visit and discover if Radiesse is best for your cosmetic desires.

Review From Tiffany S.
Dr. Lupo is absolutely amazing! I saw her for botox and filler before my wedding and now I am a devotee of her work. She is a master at accomplishing a natural looking and beautiful result. She has an artist's eye and a surgeon's calm hands. She is personable, kind, and funny, and I always find myself 100% at ease in her office. It is easy to be candid with her and ask for exactly what you want. She is honest and takes the time to communicate with you to make sure you're both on the same page, and you don't feel like she is running in and out of the room and rushing off to another appointment. She gives you her full attention and it makes a world of difference. I highly recommend Dr. Lupo to all my friends and family. Wonderful woman and doctor. Couldn't be happier!
