Since 1983, Dr. Mary Lupo 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 face 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 achieve the best possible result. You cannot learn the nuances of these techniques and their optimal application at a weekend course, but rather 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.
