I have HIV,can I have Botox injections done. Thanks
| Response from Dr. Frascino
Can you have Botox done? Hmmm . . . well, if you have lots of money, a competent physician and crow's feet that look like hawks claws, sure.
HIV is not a contradiction; however, I should point out that Botox is not the correct treatment for wrinkles associated with HIV lipoatrophy (fat loss). For that condition, a facial filler, like Sculptra, would be more appropriate.
