Many men and women in the New Orleans area want to maintain their youthful appearance. The unwanted signs of aging often start to creep up on the skin after the age of thirty as patients begin to lose their natural stores of collagen and elastin, which keep the skin supple and firm. As skin laxity becomes a problem, so does the development of fine lines and wrinkles, and many patients visit us to learn about non-invasive ways to combat these issues and keep their youth for as long as possible without surgical intervention. Dr. Mary Lupo at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology may recommend Sculptra treatment.
Sculptra treatment is just one of many options available when it comes to injectable services at our practice. However, Sculptra is not like many of the other dermal fillers used for reducing the depth of fine lines and wrinkles on the face such as Juvéderm, Perlane, and Restylane. Sculptra is made of poly-L lactic acid, and when injected into specific areas of the face, it stimulates the production of collagen. Because this injection helps at the source of the problem, restoring lost collagen, it can provide long-lasting results with fewer injections. Many patients notice their skin looks beautiful and revived over a few months after the first injection, and can enjoy the results for several years.
Dr. Mary Lupo is proud to be on the first physician advisory board to participate in the training and use of Sculptra before it was introduced in the United States in 2004. She continues to be a certified training provider for Sculptra.
If you think Sculptra is the anti-aging solution for you, book an appointment at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology today. We can make appropriate recommendations for you based on your specific lifestyle, needs, and budget. We want patients to have access to numerous options to enhance their appearance and love the skin they're in!
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.
