What is Botox? Is it safe? How is it used? Dr. Mary Lupo of the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology sees many patients who visit her practice and want to know about the advantages of using Botox and other cosmetic injectables. Botox is just one of several methods used for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the facial area. Botox is formulated with botulinum toxin type A, which is a neuromodulator that has been used for many years in medicine. When injected into muscles, it reduces contraction. When used in the facial area, patients will notice a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles caused by muscle contraction in the face. The results from Botox develop within a few days and can last several months before patients need to come in for reinjection. This injectable is cleared by the FDA and is safe for medical and cosmetic purposes. When certain muscles are treated, you can even achieve a lift to the brows or mouth corners.
Candidates for Botox are patients who have dynamic wrinkles and folds that are caused the muscles in the face tensing over time. Therefore, it is best suited for:
