What is expected for New Orleans individuals who have the Restylane procedure?


Plastic surgery is a serious consideration. It is invasive, risky, and expensive. Patients who want to address fine lines and wrinkles in the face should not assume that a facelift or other surgical treatment is the only answer. Instead, patients can utilize dermal fillers such as Restylane to improve their skin’s texture and maintain a more youthful appearance.

Before a patient has a Restylane procedure, they should consult with Dr. Lupo in New Orleans. She is a board certified dermatologist who offers Restylane as well as other popular injectables to turn back the hands of time. During the initial consultation appointment, patients can show Dr. Lupo the areas of the face that are troublesome and learn which dermal filler is most appropriate. Once it has been determined that Restylane is the best fit, patients can schedule their appointment for treatment.

The entire Restylane procedure is relative short. The appointment takes approximately 20 minutes, and allows the patient to go about their day without any downtime or recovery.

Before the injections are completed, Dr. Lupo applies a topical numbing solution to ensure the patient is comfortable. A cold compress may also work depending on the area in which the injections are given. The patient rests in a chair that provides a slight reclining position and gives Dr. Lupo the best angle and height to administer the Restylane. The areas of concern are injected, and the results can be seen almost immediately. Patients are given instructions on what to expect after treatment and are encouraged to call with any concerns or problems they may experience.

Restylane is long-lasting dermal filler that provides results up to 12 months before subsequent injections are needed. By scheduling periodic injections, patients are able to maintain the results and reduce the signs of aging over time. Though patients are unable to completely stop the process of aging, they can definitely slow down the signs and “age gracefully” with the help of the team at Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology.

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!
