When patients are complaining of different lesions and skin conditions on their face, they may be the perfect candidate for skin rejuvenation with the 532 nm Varilite laser. This treatment is used in a variety of situations, and it can help reduce problems such as:
  • Freckles
  • Sun spots/age spots
  • Skin tags & DPN
  • Rosacea
  • Port wine stains (birth marks)
  • Spider veins
  • Keratoses
Patients who are introduced to laser skin resurfacing, may want to learn more about what they can expect before, during, and after treatment.


Before patients can undergo treatment with the 532 nm Varilite laser, they must first be deemed appropriate candidates. This includes undergoing a thorough physical examination and allowing Dr. Mary Lupo to review any past and present medical concerns and history. Patients of all skin types can address lesions and pigmentation problems with this laser therapy. Once patients have decided to undergo laser skin resurfacing, an appointment is made for treatment.


The Varilite devices administer special laser wavelengths, which help target areas of pigmentation. Patients experience mild discomfort, though local anesthetics are not necessary. Treatment time is relatively short, often within 20 minutes. Patients can treat their face, neck, or décolleté with the Varilite laser.


After treatment, many patients may experience some redness. However, this is short-term and can be covered with cosmetics if necessary. Most individuals return to work or their daily activities with no interruption.

Patients interested in improving their appearance with the 532 nm Varilite laser can contact the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology in the New Orleans area to learn more about this treatment and determine if it is right for their skin concern needs. It can be an affordable, effective way to reduce the appearance of pigmentation and lesions that may otherwise be considered bothersome or embarrassing.

Review From Anne R.
Dr. Mary Lupo and her staff performed Fraxel laser on my face and I had incredible results. The service, which is the brand Fraxel, isn't the least expensive in the city, but when done correctly by a professional like Dr. Lupo, the money is well spent. For me, I had issues with age spots and melasma, which were significantly diminished in one treatment--as well as fine lines around my eyes. My face looked young and bouncy and bright. For Dr. Lupo, this is a craft and she spends time with her patients, giving them the best results possible. I'd highly recommend her and this service to anyone.
