Service Spotlight: Botox® Cosmetic
Botox® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected by Dr. David Greene to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines
between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).
Botox® Cosmetic is administered by Dr. David Greene in our Naples, FL office as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the
muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.

How Does Your Skin Age?
Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It's not just about cellular
changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by free radicals. Your 1's, 11's, or 111's are
those moderate to severe vertical frown lines between your brows that result from muscle contractions.
Years of squinting, concentrating, or frowning can cause your skin to furrow and crease.
As your skin
becomes less elastic, those moderate to severe frown lines remain-even when your muscles are not contracting.
After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even
after the muscles are at rest.
If you would like to discover ways to help rejuventate and restore your skin's natural beauty, call us for an appointment with Dr. David Greene at 239.263.8444.
