Do you live in the New Orleans, LA area and enjoy treatment with board certified professionals with your best interests at heart? If this sounds like you, the team at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology encourage you to make an appointment with Dr. Mary Lupo to learn about the benefit of Botox injections for cosmetic use.

What is Botox?

Dr. Mary Lupo and her team describe Botox as a neuromodulator, a special medication that can be injected into the muscles to reduce tension. By doing this with specific muscles of the face, patients are able to target the areas that are often plagued with fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is best used on areas of the face to treat the following:
  • Forehead folds
  • Glabellar lines or “frown lines”
  • Crow’s feet
  • Lipstick Lines
  • Neck banding
  • Dimpled chin
These are areas of the face that are often affected by fine lines and wrinkles because of muscle tension that can affect the appearance. Dr. Mary Lupo and her team of professionals welcome patients in and around the area to ask about Botox, which is safe, effective, and affordable.

How does Botox work?

Botox works by reducing muscle contractions of the face Botox works by reducing muscle contractions of the face, which, in turn, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and folds that have developed due to dynamic changes. Botox does not work immediately. Instead, it improves the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines over the course of several days. The results can then last approximately four months before patients need to see their dermatologist for reinjection. Botox cannot completely stop or reverse aging, but it can definitely slow the signs and help patients age gracefully without having plastic surgery completed. Botox is perfect for patients with mild to moderate wrinkles.

Who is a candidate for Botox?

Botox is appropriate for adult patients who are interested in anti-aging services. Most patients are appropriate candidates, but we do encourage individuals who are curious about this treatment to schedule a consultation appointment and initial evaluation with our team. Botox is just one of many injectables that are available in our practice, and we may find that another injectable or a combination of injectables is best for an individual. Dr. Mary Lupo is a Board-certified dermatologist that can make recommendations for patients based on their specific desires and needs when it comes to their anti-aging services.

What other injectables are available at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology?

Dr. Mary Lupo proudly provides other injectables instead of just Botox. Dr. Mary Lupo proudly provides other injectables instead of just Botox. Botox is just one neuromodulator that is well-known, but patients can also request others, including Xeomin and Dysport. Additionally, some patients may instead benefit more from a hyaluronic acid injectable called a dermal filler. We offer many brands of these including Restylane, Belotero, and Juvéderm. All of these add immediate volume directly into the fine lines and wrinkles of concern for fast results, and last many months before reinjection is required. For patients who are struggling with volume loss, collagen and elastin stimulators such as Sculptra may be recommended. These are injected into the cheeks to add volume and maintain it up to two years. Our professionals may also recommend a combination of neuromodulators, collagen stimulators, and dermal fillers to provide patients with a full “liquid facelift” with superb results. Working with our team is the first step in deciding what is best for you!
