Enjoying a “liquid facelift” in New Orleans with Sculptra


Dr. Mary Lupo in New Orleans is a board certified dermatologist committed to assisting individuals in rejuvenating their skin and body in cosmetic, medical, and laser dermatology. Her team at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology believes in providing the best that technology has to offer and provides non-surgical skin rejuvenation techniques that patients can afford.

The most common issue seen by Dr. Mary Lupo in her practice is that of aging. Fine lines, wrinkles, folds, volume loss, and skin laxity are all complaints brought forward by new and existing patients who visit the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology. While a surgical facelift is always an option, it is best suited for patients with severe instances of skin laxity and volume loss. Patients with mild to moderate concerns are often not good candidates for treatment and they are looking for more affordable, less invasive ways of addressing these problems. Thanks to continued advances in dermatology, patients can now use Sculptra injections to enjoy a “liquid facelift” along with other injectables such as neuromodulators and dermal fillers.

Sculptra stands apart from other injectables because it is made of Poly-L-Lactic Acid and helps in stimulating the production of new collagen. Collagen is what gives the skin volume and youthfulness. As we age, we begin to lose collagen in the skin and notice relaxation, which causes volume loss and imperfections such as fine lines and wrinkles. Sculptra can help reverse some of these concerns and bring back a more youthful appearance.

Sculptra does not show immediate results in the same way dermal fillers do, but the gradual improvement is often more natural in appearance. Neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport, are also available through the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, but are better used on areas such as the upper portion of the face instead of specific fine lines and wrinkles on the rest of the face. Dr. Mary Lupo suggests a consultation appointment for patients to determine the best injectables for them—and decide if a combination of injectables is best for optimum results.

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!
