Skin Tightening

With age and exposure to the sun’s harmful rays and environmental pollutants, collagen and elastin break down quicker leading to wrinkles, folds and sagging skin. Our skin tightening treatments can reverse the signs of aging from the thin delicate skin around the eyes to loose, uneven skin on the body that diet and exercise can’t get rid of.

Skin tightening technology has been available at the Lupo Center since 2004, and since then, we have upgraded our devices to provide our patients with the safest and most effective technology on the market. Our skin tightening treatments use radiofrequency, which allows the body to rebuild its own collagen for a natural renewal process without surgery or downtime. The radiofrequency technology works below the skin’s surface to target aging at its core without damaging the top layer of skin.

At the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, patients have seen great results from our skin tightening treatments:
  • Eyes – hooding, fine lines and uneven brow lines can be treated to create a more youthful and rested appearance
  • Face – “turkey neck”, loose jowls and sagging skin can be tightened and smoothed for a healthier, younger look
  • Body – crepey, sagging skin and unwanted bulges and dimples are smoothed out for a toner looking midsection, arms or legs
A skin tightening treatment is a great option for patients in their 40's who want to reverse early skin changes in order to postpone or prevent the need for surgery as well as for women whose bodies didn’t bounce back after childbirth. It’s also a great option after liposuction to tighten any ridges or ripples.

How does skin tightening work?
Skin tightening is usually done with devices that bypass the top layer of the skin and penetrate to a deeper level to stimulate deeper collagen stimulation and tightening of the skin.

What are the products that you use for skin tightening procedures? The ones that we use in our office are the Thermage, the Exilis pro, the radiofrequency micro-needling device, so we use three that’s primarily for tightening.

The Thermage and the Exilis Pro are the most popular and the reason is there is absolutely no downtime with either of those.

The radiofrequency micro-needling, there is a bit of downtime with that, but Thermage and Exilis there is none.

Are the procedures safe and affordable?
The difference is it is kind of like, the Fraxel is more aggressive, than the Clear and Brilliant and you have to do a series of Clear and Brilliant, the Thermage is a more intense treatment, you do one and then wait three months for the results. Exilis, you do a series of them every couple of weeks over that three-month period to achieve the results.

The Exilis per treatment is less expensive, so it is sort of like a layaway plan, you pay on it as you go. And I think the Exilis hurts a little bit less than the Thermage because its intensity is less.

Are treatments optional?
We try to work with the patient and understand. If we have a working woman, she might want to go with Thermage, because she doesn't have the time to come here every two weeks just for 46 treatments.

Some people, don't work, and like the idea of coming in and the treatment been less expensive, and they sort of pay as they go if you will. To see if skin tightening is right for you, please contact our office to set up a consultation with Dr. Lupo, (504) 777-3047.

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!
