Botox in Naples, Fl

When you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments can not only prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements, they can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking younger and more refreshed.

What Can Botox® Treatments Do For Me?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the country and one of our most requested services. Quick, safe, and effective, BOTOX® reduces or eliminates facial lines and wrinkles for up to six months with no downtime and little to no discomfort. Through a series of tiny injections, BOTOX® gives you a rejuvenated look by smoothing crow’s feet beneath the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines across the forehead, worry lines around the mouth, and lines on the neck.

In addition to smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, BOTOX® may be useful for treating migraine headaches, excessive sweating, chronic back and jaw pain, and muscle spasms.

How Botox® Cosmetic Works

BOTOX® is the brand name for botulinum toxin A, a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent derived from the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum. Originally approved by the FDA for the treatment of eye and muscle spasms, BOTOX® was quickly recognized for its cosmetic value.

Florida plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Turk has been using BOTOX® Cosmetic for years as a treatment to correct visible signs of stress and aging. The medication relaxes the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. When injected in small doses in specific areas, BOTOX® injections block nerve muscles responsible for the repetitive actions that cause fine lines and wrinkles. In this way, BOTOX® smoothens the lines in the skin that make you look tired or angry.

Candidates For Botox®

A good botox candidate is anyone looking to enhance their appearance by getting rid of unwanted lines or wrinkles. It is also important that patients seeking treatment with BOTOX® injections are in good physical health, are not pregnant or nursing, and do not have a neuromuscular disorder.

Men and women considering BOTOX® treatment should have realistic expectations of what the procedure can do. You should discuss the desired results with your doctor to ensure that your goals can be achieved.

How is Botox Performed?

Using a very fine needle, Dr. Turk will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into designated muscles in your face that are causing lines and wrinkles. You may experience brief, mild discomfort during the injection, but you can be assured that the treatment is very safe and effective. Taking only a few minutes, BOTOX® treatment requires no anesthetic and recovery is immediate, allowing you to return to work and resume your normal daily activities that same day.

What Results Can I Expect from Botox?

Immediately following the BOTOX® treatment, some patients may experience mild bruising, which will go away shortly. You will see your wrinkles begin to fade within 24 hours, with continued improvement over the next 5 days. The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic typically last up to four months, although many have reported results lasting up to a full year. After several BOTOX® treatments, the results may be prolonged.

BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment will relax the muscles in your face and soften the skin, giving you a more relaxed and youthful appearance. For optimum results, many patients choose to use BOTOX® in conjunction with a facelift, skin rejuvenation therapy, and/or laser skin resurfacing.

Is Receiving Botox Painful?

No. The doctor will take every measure to make sure you are comfortable during your treatment. During your consultation, let us know if you are concerned about discomfort. We may apply a cold compress or ice to the treatment area for a few moments to create a numbing effect. Keep in mind that the doctor uses a very fine needle and gentle technique to administer injections. With this, you may feel nothing more than a tiny, momentary pinching sensation.

How Long Will the Results Last After My Botox Treatment?

Your body will break down the active ingredient in its unique timing. Most Botox treatments last between four and six months, though they may start to fade as early as three months after treatment. As you notice the recurrence of dynamic wrinkles after 90 days, you may schedule a touch-up treatment to maintain your refreshed appearance.

How Many Botox Treatments Should I Get?

Botox can be scheduled as often as every three months to sustain your results. You should need only one treatment to achieve favorable results.

Can I Combine Botox with Other Treatments?

Depending on the goals that you set during your consultation visit, Dr. Turk may suggest a combination of treatments. If you have multiple signs of facial aging, such as dynamic wrinkles and jowls or deep creases around your nose and mouth, you may benefit from the inclusion of dermal fillers into your treatment plan. We carry products from Juvederm® and Restylane® and can help you determine which product or products are ideal for your treatment goals.

How Long is the Recovery from Botox Injections?

Side effects of BOTOX® are rare and are usually mild and temporary. The most common side effects caused by BOTOX® are headaches and temporary redness or bruising of the skin at the site of injection. In rare cases, slight drooping of an eyelid or asymmetry of expression may occur. Any risk of complication can be reduced by choosing a qualified and experienced physician such as Dr. Turk.

Are there Risks & Side Effects to Botox Treatment?

There is no recovery time needed after your Botox injections. You might notice very subtle redness and swelling where your injections were administered, but these should fade very quickly. Botox has long been referred to as a "lunchtime treatment" because side effects do not prevent you from going about your day as you normally would. To prevent the migration of the product, you should avoid rubbing the treatment area for 24 hours. You may also want to avoid rigorous physical activity to allow the minor inflammation in the skin to resolve without exacerbation.

The Importance of Choosing a Qualified Physician for Botox

Even though BOTOX® is not a surgical procedure, it is very important to choose a highly experienced and qualified physician such as Dr. Turk when deciding to undergo BOTOX® treatments. Doctors who are less familiar with the technique could leave you looking “frozen” or perpetually surprised. Our doctors are intimately familiar with BOTOX® Cosmetic, having successfully treated hundreds of patients at our office. Not only that, we also take the time to talk with each candidate before beginning the injections to find out what he or she wants to achieve and to determine how best to correct their problem area(s), so patients can be happy again with their smoother, younger-looking faces.
