At the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, Dr. Lupo provides ways to address a variety of cosmetic concerns. Patients may be worried about skin laxity on the face and body. Patients in the New Orleans, LA area should speak to our Board-certified dermatologist about skin tightening procedures for these common areas of concern.

What is skin laxity?

Skin laxity occurs when the body naturally starts losing collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin keep the skin tight and firm, and youthful looking. However, after the age of 30, patients naturally begin to lose collagen and elastin from the skin and may notice sagging, especially on areas such as the jaw line. Instead of undergoing plastic surgery and having a face lift to bring the skin back up and tighten it, it may be better for patients to consider alternative solutions such as Exilis treatment.

Exilis explained

Exilis is a treatment option for patients to consider when it comes to tightening skin on the face and body. This device is approved by the FDA for use in firming the skin.

The system is a handheld device used by our trained clinicians to provide amazing results after several treatment sessions.

Exilis has many benefits. It is:

  • Affordable

Dr. Mary Lupo, a Board-certified dermatologist who proudly offers non-surgical skin tightening services to patients in and around the community of New Orleans, There is often a point where some patients may not be considered candidates for Exilis because it will not be able to provide the results patients are seeking.

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.
