Lopilato made her debut in television series Mi familia es un dibujo in 1995, and continued working as a child model. In 1999, she was chosen to play Luisana Maza in Chiquititas, a popular television series created by Cris Morena.
Lopilato signed contract with the Cris Morena Group, and released four Chiquititas soundtrack albums — Chiqutitias Vol. 5 (1999), Chiqutitias Vol. 6 (2000), Chiquititas Vol. 6 (2001) and Chiquititas: Rincón de Luz (2001).

In 2007 Lopilato announced she had left Erreway and that Rojas, Colombo and Bordonaba would have a tour in Spain as a trio. It was also confirmed that Lopilato would record a solo album, and that she had signed with Universal Music Group.

Lopilato gained great popularity in Latin America, Spain, Greece and Israel after Rebelde Way. She received several subsequent acting offers and ended up signing with Pol-Ka Productions, with which she did two telenovelas, Los Secretos de Papá and Los Pensionados. In 2005 Lopilato appeared in Casados con Hijos, an Argentine version of Married... With Children. She portrayed Paola Argento, a character originally portrayed by Christina Applegate. She was nominated for a Martín Fierro Award for Best Supporting Actress.

In 2011, Lopilato made her debut on the international market with her first film outside of Argentina. It was a Spanish thriller film "Predeterminados", directed by Jordi Arencón, in which she plays Vera. It was a very dramatic role and a new challenge in her career in film, far more demanding than her previous roles as an actress. Lopilato also plans to soon begin a new play called Canillita with Alicia Zanca again.

After Chiquititas, Cris Morena (creator of the series), rehired Lopilato for a new series called Rebelde Way, also acting actors strip should know how to sing, of which there would be a pop group called Erreway and that at that time did not expect anyone for anything that would be next to the series the phenomenon that catapulted Lopilato to worldwide fame, like his companions.

Although as Lopilato says it is a future project, she has made it clear on several occasions that in a few years she may release a solo pop album with songs written by herself and with her sister, Daniela Lopilato. Among the rumors about the CD, there is talk that one of the album's producers would be someone who had previously worked with the very Hilary Duff and that the label is Warner Bros. Records.
