What practice near me offers Botox injections?By Dr. Mary Lupo
What is Botox?Botox is a neuromodulator formulated with a medication known as botulinum toxin type A. This medication is used to reduce muscle contractions. It has been used for years in medicine and is known for treating other conditions such as hyperhidrosis, cervical dystonia, and temporomandibular joint disorder—just to name a few! Dr. Mary Lupo of New Orleans, LA is a dedicated, board-certified dermatologist who utilizes Botox to reduce the appearance of muscle-related wrinkles and folds on the facial area.
How is Botox used?Botox is offered as an injectable medication. Patients relax in the treatment chair as Dr. Mary Lupo finds the specific muscles contributing to problems such as lines and wrinkles around the eyes or near the forehead area. Then, using a steady hand and experience, she injects the medication into the skin and through to the muscles of the face. Patients leave the office and begin to notice the gradual improvement in their appearance over the course of several days. The results last four months or longer before reinjection is necessary to maintain the new look.
