Botox procedure for youthful look from dermatologist in New Orleans
The signs of aging often start around the age of thirty, as the skin naturally begins to lose natural collagen and elastin stores. Patients notice fine lines, wrinkles, and folds developing on the face and the areas of excessive facial movement make these aging lines worse. When men and women want to turn back time, they can do so with a Botox procedure. New Orleans, LA area patients who are ready to do something about their aging skin are welcome to visit Dr. Mary Lupo and the staff of the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology to learn more about Botox and other cosmetic injectable services available in our practice.

What is Botox?

Patients often ask for Botox by name. Botox is formulated with botulinum toxin type A, a substance that is known as a neuromodulator. Neuromodulators reduce muscle contractions, and therefore, smooth the skin. The results can last several months before more injections are required.

What is the process?

  • Consultation/evaluation – first, patients need to determine if they are appropriate candidates for Botox injections. This is done during the initial evaluation and the consultation appointment with Dr. Mary Lupo.
  • Injection – once patients have chosen to move forward with Botox, it is injected into the specific problem areas of the face.
  • Aftercare – while there is no downtime associated with Botox injections, patients may experience some redness and discomfort at the injection site. This typically improves within a day or two, and results show within a week.
  • Maintenance – patients who want to maintain the results are welcome to visit Dr. Mary Lupo for reinjections at regular intervals.
