Cosmetic Injectables

Naples Plastic Surgery

Injectables are non-invasive skin treatments that fill in facial wrinkles, tighten skin, or get rid of fat, to help patients achieve the results they desire. Many patients prefer injectable treatments as opposed to other anti-aging treatments because they offer remarkable results with little to no recovery time, allowing patients to return to their daily activities as soon as possible.

Your Injectable Options

Botox ™

Botox injections are one of the most often requested cosmetic procedures in the United States. Studies have discovered that Botox injections can reduce wrinkles and fine lines by as much as 80 percent and the results can last for three to five months. Prior to the procedure one of our surgeons, Dr. Paul M. Gardner, Dr. Leo M. Baccaro, Dr. Mark Walsh, or Dr. Andrew Bonett, will carefully evaluate facial structure to determine the ideal injection sites. Then, he will gently administer Botox to help patients lessen frown lines, crows’ feet and other wrinkles. After the Botox has been administered, patients are free to continue their daily activities with their newly rejuvenated appearances.

One of the more sought-after procedures at Naples Plastic Surgery is Botox injections and so I’d like to talk about what Botox actually is.

Botox is a trade name for botulinum injectable botulinum toxin that’s offered by the Allergan corporation. There are other forms of botulinum toxin that’s injected including Juve, Dysport and Xeomin, but the one that most people are familiar with and that’s thrown around quite a bit is Botox, so I’m going to refer to it as Botox.

Botox is actually injected for one purpose to weaken muscles and so how does it work? It actually works on the muscles in our face. Usually that’s where we inject it to weaken the muscles that for example form wrinkles. I’m going to form some wrinkles on my forehead. Those wrinkles if treated properly with the right amount of Botox can smooth out. When you get Botox injections it’s not an eraser, it’s not going to erase all the lines in the face. What it’s going to do is weaken the muscles that form those lines and what we recommend is every three months you come back you get re-injected because that’s how long Botox generally lasts three months and if you capture those muscles before they start working those wrinkles again you can actually over a year’s time get those wrinkles to almost disappear. It’s miraculous! But what I wanted to say about Botox that’s very important to understand it’s one of the best anti-aging tools we have in our armamentarium against aging.

I have patients that have had Botox for many years they come back every three months. I’m not kidding they almost are stuck in time. It’s not to say they don’t age physiologically but if you look at the areas that we inject the Botox they almost stay where they were when we started injecting them.

So it’s really good for that purpose, so remember when you’re ready to do Botox remember it’s not an eraser it’s not just going to make all your wrinkles go away, but if you keep up with it every three months over time the wrinkles are going to go away and you’re going to stop the aging process, as well as you could with any other modality.

PRP Therapy

PRP Therapy or plasma injections are excellent for the rejuvenation of your skin. When Dr. Gardner, Dr. Baccaro, Dr. Walsh, or Dr. Bonett inject it into the necessary areas, its high concentration of platelets will stimulate and promote the production of new collagen. New collagen means that your skin will be revitalized which in turn leads to firm youthful skin. As a result, PRP significantly reduces wrinkles and other imperfections.

Fat Transfer

Fat Transfers are safe and long lasting. They are an excellent non-invasive alternative for gaining improved facial appearance and aesthetics. The purpose of fat transfers is to fill in wrinkles and creased areas of the face. Common areas for fat transfer include the hands, face, skin depressions or divots, and the breasts or buttocks.

Other Injectables

Dr. Gardner and Dr. Baccaro are proud to incorporate many injectable options into their practice. Each injectable offers patients remarkable results in treating their unique concerns. Depending on the patient’s initial conditions and aesthetic goals, our doctors will select the filler most appropriate to yield ideal results.


Radiesse™ is one of the most successful and sought-after treatments for deep wrinkles. Studies have shown that Radiesse™ is effective at lessening the appearance of deep wrinkles by as much at 80% when properly administered. Patients who have deep frown lines, crows’ feet, or nasolabial folds are often good candidates for Radiesse™ to benefit their overall facial contours for up to two years.


Restylane® is used to add volume and fullness to the skin as well as treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane® can also be used as a lip augmentation for patients aged over 21. This injectable filler has proven to be effective at treating light wrinkles such as laugh lines and smoker’s lines. This dermal filler was developed to be used on deep to middling wrinkles and folds.


Juvederm® is designed to add volume to sunken areas of the face, improve and plump facial contours, and fill in wrinkles. Your JUVÉDERM® Options include JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC which adds volume to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks to help create a more youthful appearance. JUVÉDERM ULTRA® XC and JUVÉDERM ULTRA® Plus XC to fill in wrinkles, marionette lines, and smokers lines. This brand of dermal filler is truly versatile. Ultra XC has a thicker consistancy and has a greater ability to lift deeper folds and wrinkles. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is the latest addition to the collection. This filler is tailored to add subtle volume to the lips and smooth the appearance of vertical lip lines.
