" Botox is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States. The injection into key muscles gives a more relaxed look and the benefits may be cumulative after many treatments. "
- Dr. Lupo
My Botox looks great. I look refreshed and happy and it shows! Dr. Lupo and her staff were very helpful throughout the procedure. I look forward to my next treatment. ~ Pam V.
Botox Cosmetic is a naturally purified protein which is injected in a sterile manner into the muscle. The muscle relaxes, resulting in fewer wrinkles and lines. When done correctly, the result is smooth, relaxed and more youthful. Dr. Lupo has been chosen by Allergan to teach other aesthetic physicians proper injection techniques to ensure great results that look natural. She has been a National Training Physician and NTC review board member, and is currently on the Botox Cosmetic National Educational Faculty.
She has lectured and demonstrated Botox Cosmetic injection techniques at numerous CME meetings including the American Society for Dermatological Surgery, Tulane Medical School, Alabama Dermatological Society, Skin Disease Educational Foundation, and The Cosmetic Boot Camp. She was chosen to be a faculty member for the American Academy of Dermatology's web-based Continuing Medical Educational (CME) program on Botox Cosmetic. She is a Platinum level injector in the Botox Cosmetic Network and a participant in the Botox Cosmetic Benefits program in which her patients get special discounts and promotions from Allergan.
Botox can be complemented by other cosmetic procedures to achieve your aesthetic goals. A combination of treatments can achieve better results than a single treatment.
