It often comes as a shock when early signs of aging appear on your face. You might have noticed vertical “frown lines” between your eyebrows, horizontal forehead creases, or perhaps “crow’s feet” radiating from the corners of your eyes. No one is immune to wrinkles; just squinting in the bright sunlight or concentrating at a board meeting can create facial lines over time. This type of wrinkle, created by muscle movement, is called a “dynamic wrinkle” and BOTOX® Cosmetic is designed to target the cause. It is easy to refresh the youthful look of your face with “just a little something,” in Naples, Florida.
“I appreciate Dr. Prysi for his ability & helpful advice to me. His entire staff are very friendly and helpful. I enjoy coming to his office because I know he can & will help me.”
“Dr. Prysi creates amazing results! He kept the changes natural - just as he said he would. I could not be more pleased.”
“Dr. Prysi performed extensive work on me ten years ago. The results were remarkable and long-lasting to the extent that I did not even consider going to anyone else all these years later.”
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are quick, simple injections that can effectively improve your facial wrinkles, while maintaining your ability to make natural facial expressions—an essential part of what keeps you looking like you.
It is not a dermal filler like Radiesse® or Juvéderm® Injectable Gel; instead, BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles that contribute to wrinkles every time they contract. Within a few days of treatment, targeted wrinkles begin to fade, leaving skin looking smoother and more youthful.
When patients visit us for BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments in our Naples office, they don’t have to invest hours for treatment or days for recovery. You can enhance your appearance with a quick office visit and no required downtime. We inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into specific facial muscles, often close to the targeted wrinkles, using a fine needle. There is minimal pain that many patients describe as a pinprick or bug bite sensation.
Improvements usually last between 3 to 6 months, and can often be maintained with periodic touch-up treatments.
How does Botox work?
Botox works by temporarily blocking nerve receptors in the muscles where it is injected. This reduces movement from the muscles responsible for wrinkles that form as you make facial expressions.
Will Botox lift eyebrows?
Botox can be used to lift the eyebrows in some cases.
How old do you have to be for Botox?
There is no particular age that is correct for starting Botox. All patients will see signs of aging at different points in their lifetimes. On average, patients start using Botox in their late thirties to early forties. You may start Botox treatment as early as your twenties for preventative purposes.
Can Botox prevent wrinkles?
Botox can be used to prevent wrinkles from forming or worsening over time.
Does Botox hurt?
Botox injections cause minimal discomfort, as the needle used is very small. Topical numbing cream may be available as needed.
