New Orleans patients can use Sculptra to address aging skin


When patients want to address the signs of aging in a gradual manner that looks natural and long lasting, Dr. Mary Lupo and her team may suggest solutions such as Sculptra. Sculptra is an injectable approved by the FDA in 2009 for the correction of mild to severe nasolabial folds, facial wrinkles, and facial contours. This product is developed with Poly-L-Lactic Acid, which works by stimulating collagen production in a way that no other product can.

Other injections are commonly considered by patients including dermal fillers and neuromodulators. Dermal fillers work by adding volume directly to the fine lines and wrinkles for immediate results, while Botox and Dysport, neuromodulators, work by reducing muscle contractions and addressing the depth of fine lines and wrinkles over the course of several days. Sculptra, on the other hand, provides gradual results as new collagen adds volume to the areas in which the injectable has been administered. The results occur over many weeks, but lasts months longer than traditional injectables.

Sculptra can help patients with aging skin by reducing the depth of fine lines and wrinkles while also adding volume to areas around the cheeks to restore a youthful look. Aesthetics is important to patients who are struggling with the signs of aging, and no makeup can restore a face that is affected by fine lines and wrinkles. Using injectables such as Sculptra is a wonderful, non-invasive alternative to surgical procedures that are costly, risky, and require an extensive amount of downtime for recovery and healing. Sculptra refines the contours of an aging face, improving a tired or gaunt appearance.

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!
