Botox explained

Dr. Mary Lupo, our board-certified dermatologist, is a professional with years of experience in general and cosmetic dermatology. She is committed to helping patients find solutions to their aesthetic issues. When adult patients come into the practice concerned about fine lines and wrinkles, they are often told to consider Botox. It is a neuromodulator, a solution that is used in a variety of fields. In fact, Botox has been used for years in addressing conditions such as chronic migraines and overactive bladder. When Botox is injected into the muscles of the face, it relaxes them and reduces dynamic wrinkles that often form due to muscle contractions. Botox can also be used to lift brows and jawline. This results in more youthful facial features. Patients who have developed wrinkles on the facial area can reverse them for many months with Botox injections.

What can I expect from Botox treatment?

Many patients are excited to learn about the benefits of Botox injections. Botox injections are performed in our practice only by a board certified dermatologist. First, patients consult with the doctor to determine candidacy and discuss this and other injectables to decide which is best. Once patients have decided to move forward with Botox, they are set up in a treatment chair in the office. Dr. Mary Lupo or one of her dedicated dermatologists determine the best areas for injection and provide precision treatment. Botox injections are fast and simple. Patients will not see the results of their injections right away. They can go about the rest of their day without interruption, as there is no recovery or healing time necessary with these injections. Over the following several days, patients will notice the changes. The skin becomes smoother and lines of concern are reduced or brows lifted. The results from Botox can last approximately four months, then, patients may want to consider reinjection to maintain their new, youthful appearance.
