About BOTOX

To diminish the effects of aging and to avoid lines, wrinkles, and lax skin from occurring on the forehead and upper face, Basile Plastic Surgery in Naples, FL is pleased to offer BOTOX to area patients. This facial rejuvenation treatment offers amazing results and is popular among both women and men. This injectable can make a dramatic improvement to dynamic facial wrinkles, which are the result of expressions and movement with the contracting muscles on the forehead. These facial lines go away when the face is relaxed, but dynamic creases can still remain. This muscle relaxer is a purified strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily freezes the movements of the underlying tissue and muscle. To diminish the appearance of these static lines and wrinkles, BOTOX is carefully injected to relax and soften the skin. This specific injection is most commonly administered by aesthetic plastic surgeon Dr. Andrea Basile between the brows where the number "11" appears, around the eyes (Crow's feet), and throughout the forehead.

Ideal Candidates

BOTOX injections are used for patients who hope to diminish and soften the visible look of dynamic wrinkles, lines, and moderate folds on their upper face in a nonsurgical way. BOTOX is often thought of as a preventative anti-aging treatment even if static wrinkles have not yet formed — keep in mind how often you find yourself making facial expressions. It is an effective noninvasive solution if you have obvious forehead wrinkles or frown lines between the brows. It is also a solution for Crow's feet around the eyes. If you experience more severe and deeper lines, a combination of BOTOX and a filler may be a better option. Also, if you are over the age of 50 with moderate to severe skin laxity, you may be a candidate for a facelift surgery. This delivers a more impactful result and it is meant to last years. Basile Plastic Surgery offers various facelifts, blepharoplasties, and brow lifts as effective options.

Procedure Technique

BOTOX injectable treatments are completed as an outpatient procedure right at Basile Plastic Surgery. If it is your first time to visit our office in Naples, FL to get BOTOX, we may perform the treatment within the same day as your initial consultation with Dr. Basile. You will be asked to make various expressions using your upper face, like frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., to help us to mark where the injections are to be placed. The face will be prepared and BOTOX will be injected under the skin using a fine needle, followed with a cool compress to help decrease discomfort, swelling, and bruising. You can ask for a numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but it usually is not needed. BOTOX treatments typically take around 10 – 15 minutes, after which you may get back to to your usual day almost right away.

What to Expect

Following the BOTOX injection, you are allowed to return to your typical schedule, although strenuous activities like exercise should be postponed for a minimum of a day. You will be advised to sleep with your head propped up for at least one night and to avoid touching your face, which can accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The injected sections of your face can become bruised, red, or swollen for a couple of days, but you should not have any severe or lasting side effects. In the majority of cases, it takes around one week before the final results of BOTOX become visible. The results generally last 3 – 4 months. You can talk to your BOTOX injector about when to make a follow-up appointment at Basile Plastic Surgery to refresh your results.
