New Orleans dermatologists discuss how Botox can be used around the mouthBy Dr. Mary Lupo
The Lupo Center for Aesthetic & General Dermatology offers a range of injectable services. Injectable options include neuromodulators (botulinum toxin type A), hyaluronic acid fillers, and collagen stimulators. The most commonly-known injectable, Botox, is an injectable neuromodulator. This product works by reducing muscle contractions where it is injected, to smooth the skin above. It is one of several brands including Xeomin and Dysport, which are also available through our practice.
Botox relaxes muscles reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, in a treatment that is quick and well-tolerated. Instead of plastic surgery procedures, this treatment works at the source—the muscles that cause dynamic lines and wrinkles. It takes just a few days for patients to begin to notice the change, and the results are maintained for several months.
Patients who have considered Botox are curious to know where it is effective. Can Botox be used around the mouth? Does it improve lines around the forehead and in-between the eyes? The answer is yes! Botox is appropriate for many area of the face. It can be used to address brow furrows, forehead lines, crow’s feet, lines around the mouth, dimples on the chin, and neck bands. Additionally, Botox can be used for treating hyperhidrosis, a condition that results in excessive sweating from the underarms.
