Aspen, Colo. – At the summer edition of The Cosmetic Bootcamp (CBC), New Orleans-based dermatologist Mary P. Lupo, M.D., shared valuable marketing and injecting techniques.
In the economically repressed New Orleans market, she said, “I truly have people who can only afford to do one syringe.” That’s why she developed her signature “one-syringe wonder” approach. “For example, if I’m treating somebody with a nasolabial fold, I’ll only correct the upper one-third. Because I’m in an anatomical danger area, I’m injecting very lightly and using the cannula as a tool to dissect and lift, so I don’t give the patient a simian appearance from overfilling.”
She said that her tactic of using a cannula to subcise under the nasolabial fold is “an intuitive thing. And it’s what happens when you start practicing, and how your brand and your artistic signature evolve. I take the cannula, and I’m often not even injecting. I’m scraping that etched line to disrupt and cause collagen stimulation. Then I’ll inject a fine layer.” Often, she will also subcise medially to slightly lift the nasal ala area.
