BOTOX is an FDA-approved neuromodulator injected into our muscles and used to temporarily improve the appearance of lines caused by dynamic and static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repetitive facial movements such as smiling, frowning, squinting and mouth puckering. These wrinkles are smoothed or eliminated in some cases by applying Botox or Dysport.
In properly administered doses, Botox also visibly improves the appearance of static wrinkles caused by the natural skin folds, accentuated due to the loss of tissue volume, collagen and elasticity during our older ages. Dynamic wrinkles usually appear after the age of 25 while static wrinkles start at 35 in well-cared skin.
The application of Botox is simple, but always confirm that it is performed by a professional. The specialist uses a thin needle to inject small amounts of botulinum toxin into the skin or muscles. The number of injections needed depends on many factors, such as the size of the treated area. Muscle activity usually ceases completely within five to fifteen days after the injection.
Our professionals at Cosmetic plastic surgery & Anti Aging will evaluate your specific case to recommend the most appropriate options, always maintaining high standards of professionalism and ethics.
Botox is the most used treatment to reduce, prevent, and sometimes eliminate facial wrinkles. Once applied you will clearly notice how lines and wrinkles are smoothed. The effects on the treated muscles are temporary and usually last between four and six months.
The effect lasts 3 to 4 months
Take less than 15 minutes

Frown: 20 Units ($240)

First-time patients, the cost is only $8.95/ unit for 40 units or more. A savings of $122.
The moment I walked in the staff was sweet, caring and helpful. I was loyal to my place for 3 yrs but I have to admit this is the best place ever. Adley and Kelly's willingness to listen and discuss my options instantly put me at ease and solidified that I was at the right place. super amazing and so knowledgeable!
This place is the best of the best from the staff, Dr Adley and the outcome of your procedure. The staff is very friendly and inviting and the doctor is extremly knowledgeable. Me and my husband couldn't be happier with the results and he should be the only doctor in Port Saint Lucie as his work is perfection.
I am 62 years young and for years I have looked in the mirror at my face and it didn’t reflect how I felt inside. Raising children, bad acne, the stress of life and caring for elderly parents took it’s toll on my face. The loss of my youthful appearance on the outside zapped my confidence and sense of self-esteem.
Adley and his staff are AMAZING! They are friendly, professional, and really care about you. I am very happy with my results! I live two hours away and they have stayed in touch with me and checked on me frequently to make sure everything was going well. I look forward to my visits and follow ups because I get the best attention and care. I highly recommend Cosmetica, Adley and the entire team!
I’ve had several procedures done here, such as fillers, CO2 laser, hormone therapy/treatments, and others. I come from more than 6 hours away every time, and I can’t imagine going anywhere else. The staff is wonderful and knowledgeable, the service is amazing, and the work done by PA DaSilva and the other professionals is simply fabulous and perfect! I’m so glad I found this place! Thank you for all you’ve done for me, and all you do for your clients!
Best cosmetic surgery place. They are honest (which is very important to me) and super kind! Staff and doctor, they all made me feel very comfortable. Plus they follow up with you to make sure things have went well with your procedure. They genuinely care about you. Highly recommend!
I am Michael’s daughter, Laura. Adley is the best. I wouldn’t ever consider trusting anyone else. Thank u SO much for always taking such good care of me Cosmetica!!
My first visit to Cosmetica and I received fillers and dysport. I'm very happy with my results so far. Adley took his time and was very explanatory and precise. He knows what he's doing. Everyone in the office was friendly. I'll definitely be coming back.
Loved my experience and my Botox results turned out awesome, just in time for my wedding. Thank you Adley! Also, thank you Shannon for finding me an appointment. I already booked my next one 👍
