Since 1983, Mary P. Lupo, M.D., has been at the forefront of non-surgical skin rejuvenation. She realized at that time the desire for patients to look younger without the downtime and serious risks associated with surgery, as well as the importance of preventative care and maintenance of correction once it was achieved. She began using innovative combination protocols for her patients that included collagen fillers, light chemical peels, and topical products such as Retin A and alpha hydroxy acids with sun protection to make the skin look years younger. This trend is now the cornerstone of non-surgical care along with the additions of Botox to relax hyperactive muscles, newer more long-lasting fillers, and laser and other energy devices. Patients travel from miles away for the insight and experience that Dr. Lupo can provide to reshape and rejuvenate their faces without cutting. Dr. Lupo’s patients understand that it is not the use of one particular filler or laser, but rather the application of these tools in tandem that achieves the best possible result. You cannot learn the nuances of these techniques and their optimal application at a weekend course. It is gleaned over a lifetime of experience. In addition, the years of teaching other physicians, serving on advisory boards, and performing clinical trials on the latest techniques have resulted in Dr. Lupo always being on the cutting edge of non-cutting (no surgery) skin rejuvenation.
Dr. Lupo is a Board-certified dermatologist and clinical professor of dermatology at Tulane University School of Medicine. Dr. Lupo received a Bachelor of Science undergraduate degree in biology from Newcomb College of Tulane University where she graduated summa cum laude with honors, achieving the highest four-year grade point average of the graduating class of 1976. She graduated from Tulane University School of Medicine in 1980 and completed her internal medicine internship at Ochsner Foundation, before entering the dermatology program at Tulane University School of Medicine where she served as chief resident in her final year.
