At the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology in New Orleans, Dr. Mary Lupo and her team have a myriad of treatments that are designed specifically for patients who are interested in combating the unwanted signs of aging. She is a board certified dermatologist who has been part of many clinical trials for cosmetic procedures, and was even part of the physician advisory board to try Sculptra before it was released in the United State back in 2004. She is certified as a trainer and provider for this injectable and she uses it regularly in her practice to bring back one's youthful look.
Sculptra is not like a traditional dermal filler such as Juvéderm, Restylane, and Perlane, just to name a few. Instead of being developed with hyaluronic acid, this injection is formulated with poly-L lactic acid. This can help in stimulating the development of collagen and elastin wherever it is injected and it can provide amazing results over the course of several months.
Dr. Mary Lupo knows that Sculptra has many advantages. The benefits of Sculptra injections are numerous. Sculptra has been on the market for over a decade and continues to show amazing results for men and women. It is affordable (because it lasts a long time), effective, and safe, receiving approval by the Food and Drug Administration. Additionally, it can be done quickly and easily in our office and allows patients to enjoy gradual enhancement of their skin. This eliminates the appearance that patients had "work done." Sculptra also has very few side effects, with most concerns being soreness, swelling and bruising at the injection site shortly after administration. This is minor, goes away on its own, and is something many patients are able to overcome easily.
If you want to find out if Sculptra is right for you, do not hesitate to book a consultation visit with our team of professionals at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology. We encourage new and existing patients in the New Orleans community to learn about the benefits of Sculptra and many other cosmetic injectables used in our facility.
Avoid these medications for at least two weeks prior to injections:
Aspirin or Ibuprofen, Fish Oil, Vitamin E, “G” supplements (ginko, ginseng, garlic), St. John's Wort and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications like Celebrex, as they may cause thinning of the blood.
