Botox is a cosmetic medication that actually began as a medical treatment. This type of medication is what is called a neuromodulator. In general terms, what this means is that, injected into muscles, Botox will weaken muscle stimulation. Originally designed for use on furrows between the brows, Botox has come a long way in the few decades it has been used cosmetically. Though various other cosmetic treatments have been developed since Botox, this treatment remains one of the most popular anti-aging tools in cosmetic dermatology. Dr. Lupo may use this cosmeceutical to treat concerns such as:
- Brow furrows, known as "11s"
- Lines across the forehead
- Crow’s feet
- Lines around the lips and mouth
- Chin dimpling
- Lines across the neck, called platysmal bands
- Excessive sweating
At Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, our patients receive care from a renowned professional with an extensive background in Botox. Dr. Lupo has not only provided treatment for hundreds of men and women, but has also been a certified Botox Cosmetic Trainer since 2002. She was also the only FDA investigator in the state of Louisiana for the study of Botox in the treatment of crow’s feet.
Throughout her years of treating and training, Dr. Lupo has discovered the immense value of Botox as a solitary or adjunct treatment. In many situations, Botox is an ideal companion for other anti-aging solutions such as dermal fillers. Botox and dermal fillers differ in their ultimate goal, and thus have the power to create a dramatic revitalizing effect when used together.
