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 smooths the skin. BOTOX injections are most commonly done between the eyebrows, the "Crow's feet," and across the forehead.
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.
"Pura Vida is wonderful!! The atmosphere is beautiful and relaxing and the staff is amazing! I have had a facial with Melissa and she is very knowledgeable and kind. Ericka did my massage and she really listened to my likes and dislikes and gave me one of the best massages I have ever had. And the salt cave is such a nice finishing touch to any service. I would highly recommend coming here and experiencing some pampering! Just what Fleming Island needed!!"- A.J. / Facebook / Oct 17, 2019

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!
