To assist in aging gracefully and to prevent facial wrinkles and lines from forming on the top portion of the face, Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa in Fleming Island, FL is proud to offer BOTOX to local individuals. This injectable procedure provides outstanding results and is very common among both men and women. BOTOX can make a significant enhancement to static lines, which are made from expressive movement from the muscles contracting on the forehead and around the eyes. The lines disappear as the face relaxes, but dynamic folds can still exist. BOTOX is a clean and purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the facial muscle. To soften these dynamic wrinkles, BOTOX is injected, which smoothes the skin. BOTOX injections are most commonly positioned by double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. William A. Wallace between the eyebrows, the "Crow's feet," and across the forehead. BOTOX is performed in Suite B downstairs from the Spa by Dr. William Wallace of Fleming Island Plastic Surgery.
BOTOX is great for individuals who desire to soften the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles on their face without surgery. BOTOX can also be used as a preventative treatment even if you do not show signs of aging — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It's a terrific nonsurgical treatment if you are frustrated by forehead lines or parallel lines between the brows. It also a solution for the area of lines around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, a filler product may be more suitable. In addition, if you are over the age of 50 with sagging skin and widespread wrinkles, you may be considered for a facelift. This offers a more dramatic result and it is longer lasting. Our office offers eyelid surgery, facelifts, and brow lifts as great options.
"I had the most wonderful massage yesterday at Pura Vida body & mind spa! For Mother’s Day my son’s bought me a gift certificate for an aromatherapy hot stone massage and it came with a free salt therapy session. I enjoyed both very much. I did the salt therapy first and found the room to be very relaxing with its dark atmosphere and relaxing music while breathing in the health benefits of the salt. Then, it was time to for my massage with Erika . She is absolutely wonderfu...l. Very personable, knowledgeable and professional. After we discussed any areas of concern for her to pay special attention to, she allowed me to customize the aromatherapy as well as the music options. The massage was one of the best I’ve had, and I have experienced several in which to compare to. The spa itself is absolutely beautiful and spotless. I will most definitely be returning again in the near future and highly recommend Erika. Thank you for making my first visit so memorable and enjoyable."- M.F. / Facebook / May 22, 2018

"Great experience from booking the appointment to being greeted once at the spa. Nice atmosphere and decor. Erika was my massage therapist and she was excellent; very professional, polite and got my back..... no pun intended! She exceeded my expectations since this was my first appointment with her. I enjoyed my massage session and benefited from it right away. Erika was able to understand my needs and customized the massage based on my requests. I will gladly return and request to have another session with her."- M.K. / Yelp / May 18, 2018
"Julie, Pura Vida’s owner, has certainly created a wonderful place to escape right here in Fleming Island. The staff is so friendly and spa is absolutely beautiful! I have only visited twice and feel at complete ease. The treatment rooms are cozy and clean and there is also a great space for gathering, which is used for health workshops and converted to a yoga studio on certain nights. Had an amazing massage from Erika! She was very attentive and listened to my needs. I have also enjoyed the salt room twice and can say it has noticeably helped my sinuses. Allergy sufferers take note! Sitting in that room for 30 minutes has done wonders and the best part is that it is relaxing too. I will definitely be returning soon."- T.D. / Facebook / May 14, 2018
"I just got home from a most wonderful and relaxing spa experience at puravida. The hydra facial made my skin feel very nice and rejuvenated and the salt room session was most relaxing. Thank you Julie and Amanda for a great experience. The mimosas and chocolate covered strawberries added such a special touch, not to mention leaving with flowers and a great smelling soap. Thank you again! Ladies, go treat yourselves. You will not regret a pampering session at pura vida spa."- T.V. / Facebook / May 11, 2018
Plan Your Procedure
what to expect
BOTOX treatments are done as an outpatient procedure conveniently in our office. If it is your first time to visit us for BOTOX, we typically perform the BOTOX injections at the same appointment as your consultation. You will be asked to make several facial expressions with the upper face, like squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to visualize where the injections should be placed. The treatment area will be cleansed and BOTOX will be applied with a fine needle, followed by gentle compressions placed to help minimize discomfort and bruising. Patients may ask for an ice pack or numbing cream to make their treatment feel more comfortable, but this generally is unnecessary. BOTOX treatments typically takes about 10 – 15 minutes, then patients are able resume to their normal routine as soon as they feel able.
After the procedure, patients can get back to their regular routine, but strenuous activity should be skipped for at least one day. Patients are also asked to sleep with their head elevated for the first night and to not touch their face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated areas of the face may be slightly swollen, bruised, or red for 2 – 3 days after the procedure, but most patients will not develop any lasting or serious side effects from injectable treatments. In many patients, it typically takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX can be seen. The results usually last 3 – 4 months. Our patients who receive BOTOX for their first time are so happy after their first treatment and excited after seeing their results that we almost always continue to see them every few months for their touch-up. We enjoy having our patients return each time as we become a partner in helping them look rejuvenated and smooth!
