Pat developed sagging of the upper eyelids and desired cosmetic improvement. Dr. Gross performed an Upper eyelid lift and her eyes are more open, inviting, and bright. A natural yet beautiful result is seen at 3 months, which was enhanced with the use of Botox.
The eye shadow space is now visible and her eyes are brighter, clearer, and more youthful looking. The dark circles are gone and the incision lines are not visible. Botox was used to soften lines and medical grade Eye Repair Serum (Primera Pharmaceuticals) was used to lighten the dark circles beneath the eyes.
In some patients, the muscles in the brow and forehead pull in different directions. With Botox® therapy, she has a smooth, youthful, appearance accentuating her eyes. Dr. Gross performs Botox® injections daily at our Orlando Lake Mary office. (photos courtesy of Allergan).

Botox Treatment in Orlando
Whether you want to look younger, brighten your appearance or simply seek a reduction of frown lines and wrinkles, Botox is just what you’re looking for. Botox injections are safe and effective, particularly when administered by a physician with substantial experience with the product. In the Orlando area, Dr. Edward J. Gross at Primera Plastic Surgery and Day Spa is a trusted Botox specialist with many satisfied and returning clients.
Botox is an FDA-approved drug that is injected to minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles, especially those around the mouth and eyes, often called “laugh lines” and “crow’s feet.” Wrinkles on the forehead and neck also respond well to Botox, leaving you with smoother, younger looking skin. Botox is also proven to significantly reduce chronic tension headaches and migraines. The drug also treats excess sweating.
Unlike more invasive cosmetic procedures, Botox injections are nearly painless. The procedure itself is very quick, lasting only a few minutes. Botox also requires no down-time for healing after the injections are done. If you have sun damage, scarring or areas of excessive pigmentation on your face, your Botox injections can be combined with Fraxel Laser treatment. This makes it easy for Dr. Gross to serve even the busiest professionals in a quick, convenient manner. Busy moms and dads will also find that scheduling a Botox appointment around their entire family’s schedule is very simple to do.
The primary difference between Botox and other wrinkle-reducing treatments, such as Juvederm, Radiesse or Restylane, is that Botox is not a facial filler. Rather than filling in or plumping up wrinkles to sit flush with the surrounding skin, Botox works by limiting the movements of certain muscle groups in the face. In order to achieve natural results and maintain a normal level of facial expression, you should choose an experienced facial plastic surgeon to administer your Botox injections.
Dr. Gross has over 17 years of experience as a facial plastic surgeon. This experience allows him to properly plan your Botox injections, giving you a more youthful look without the appearance that you’ve had a plastic surgery procedure. Furthermore, Primera has received the Platinum designation from Allergan, the manufacturer of Botox. This recognition is the highest given to clinics that provide Botox treatments to their clients, and shows the confidence that Allergan has in Primera as a leading provider of Botox treatments.
We will strive to make your Botox procedure a pleasant experience. The relaxing and inviting environment of the facility, which houses Primera Day Spa, Primera Salon and Primera Surgery center, will put you immediately at ease. The appoachable bedside manner of Dr. Gross, named by the American Medical Association as a “Physician Who Cares” and ‘Best Plastic Surgeon’ by Orlando Magazine, will further alleviate any concerns about your Botox treatment. A natural result and quality medical care are combined with a friendly, knowledgeable staff at Primera.

You can also arrange a Virtual Consultation from the comfort of your home if you live outside the Orlando area. Below are commonly asked questions and a an educational diagram explaining how Botox is administered.
Which muscles are injected with Botox?
Since Botox removes wrinkles by preventing muscle contraction, practitioners must know all about the underlying facial muscle anatomy and know which facial muscles can be treated with Botox to get the best results and avoid complications.
Did you know?
*There are over 50 muscles in the human face.
“Face muscles are complex and a thorough understanding of contracting and counterbalancing muscles is needed. This relationship must be understood before injecting Botox”, says Dr.Gross.
The muscles of the upper part of the face that are usually treated with Botox include the forehead (‘Frontalis’) for horizontal forehead wrinkles, the muscles in and between the eyebrows (‘Corrugator’) for the “11’s and frowning”, the muscles surrounding the eyes (‘Orbicularis oculi’) causing crinkling and crows feet, and the muscle over the upper nose ‘Procerus’) causing the ‘bunny lines’,
In the lower half of the face, the wrinkles around the upper lip may be treated by injecting small doses of Botox into the ‘Orbicularis oris’ (muscle circling the mouth) and the muscles at the corner of the mouth (‘Depressor anguli oris’) which cause downward marrionette lines and corner of mouth drooping, while neck sagging is treated injecting Botox into the Platysma muscle (the thin muscle that drapes down from the jaw and down the neck—aka. “platysmal bands”).
The main expression muscles to be given Botox injections are..
(A) Frontalis muscle for forehead wrinkles
(B) Corrugator for vertical frown lines
(C) Orbicularis oculi for crows feet
(D) Procerus for horizontal frown lines across nose (bunny lines)
(E) Platysma for saggy neck bands
(F) Nasalis for treating nose wrinkles
(G) Orbicularis oris for treating wrinkles around the lips
(H) Depressor anguli oris for treating lines at the corners of the mouth.

Do Botox injections hurt?
There is little or no discomfort from Botox injections. The sensation has been described as similar to a bug bite. You can resume normal activities immediately. After your treatment you will be instructed to use an ice compress for 5 minutes and refrain from manipulating the treated area for four hours after the procedure.
Do I need a follow up visit?
It is important to note that the results of Botox injections are temporary and must be repeated to continue to enjoy the enhancement results. Dr. Gross is emphatic about the need for a follow up after initial Botox session therapy in order to ensure the results are highly satisfactory.
How long does Botox last?
The Botox procedure is very quick and can be done in minutes. It is important to note that the results of Botox injections are temporary and must be repeated to continue to enjoy the enhancement results. In most cases, the effects last from four to six months, and research indicates that the duration of benefits last longer with time. Initial results are sen in seen 5- 7 days and the peak effect is seen in 30 days.
What can Botox® do to my lines?
A smoothing of lines produces a more youthful appearance which will be observed within three to four days after the injections. “Crow’s feet” respond well to Botox and can be somewhat resistant to other cosmetic treatments.
Are there any people who shouldn’t get Botox?
Yes. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not get Botox. Individuals with neuromuscular disease, such as myasthenia gravis, should not have Botox injections. It is also contraindicated in those having an allergy to human albumin.
Botox took away my forehead lines. I’m a true believer in Botox. I had treatment in other offices, but Dr. Gross and Michelle have been the best and most consistent by far. I ‘ll be a primera fan for life.
I want the best result possible from Botox, so I go to a specialist. I tried treatments from other doctors but I honestly look my best, for the longest amount of time (and way more natural) when Dr. Gross does my Botox. I am done shopping around. Besides, where else can you get a world class doctor and hair and nails in the same place!
Dr. Gross took 5 years off me in a matter of minutes with Botox and Juvederm. If I had known it was that easy, I would have come in years ago. I highly recommend Dr. Gross.
Dr. Gross exceeded my expectations and everything was great! Highly recommend.
