“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
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

Dr. Lupo has not only provided treatment for hundreds of men and women, but has also been a certified Botox Cosmetic Trainer since 2002.

What can Botox treat?

Botox works for the frown lines between the eyebrows they are called the glabella frown lines and are nicknamed the elevens because usually there a two of them. Some people have one and some have four or five it just depends on how the muscles work.

How does Botox work?

It blocks the neurochemical attaching to the receptor at the muscle. So, the nerve releases a neurochemical called the acetylcholine that crosses the neuromuscular junction attaches to muscle receptor and makes the muscles twitch.

What Botox and other neuromodulators do is block the ability the neurotransmitting chemical to have an effect on the muscles, so, the neuromuscular blockage. The effect lasts anywhere from 3-5 months typically there is always variability. Then the body by-passes those receptors and start using other receptors.

I've been seeing Dr. Lupo for a few years now, and I really loved my results! Since I'm only 30 years old, Dr. Lupo's treatments have been very conservative to meet my needs and budget. The Botox treatments have helped me look more refreshed and rested - not different. Dr. Lupo's skin care recommendations and mild laser treatments have also given my complexion a smoother, more youthful look! Thank you, Dr. Lupo and your wonderful staff!
