This coming year marks the 20th year since Dr. Harris began using Botox for patients here in Jacksonville. From the early days of his Botox injection experience at the Mayo Clinic, Dr Harris recognized Botox’s potential and importance for facial rejuvenation and anti-aging. No surgeon in Jacksonville has more experience than Dr Harris in the use of Botox for patients and in the teaching of Botox injection techniques to physicians and medical professionals. The twenty year experience provided an opportunity for Dr Harris to create a safe consistent and effective treatment regimen for his patients with results that are unsurpassed anywhere.
Dr Harris and his partner and co-owner Dr Ankit Desai have combined their efforts to create one of the southeast’s premier Botox treatment programs here at Rejuvanence Medspa. The key to Rejuvanence’s high level of patient satisfaction is Dr Harris and Desai’s Triangle philosophy of patient education, periodic treatment plan evaluation and consistent injection technique. Dr Harris’s and Desai’s Botox treatment experience always begins with a lengthy consultation with the patient on the pharmaceutical action of Botox and is presented in a way that all patients have an understanding of its action. During this same session the patient’s specific area of concern are evaluated. These typically are either the frown lines between the eyes, the forehead wrinkles, and the crows feet lines. These first steps are repeated at each and every subsequent Botox treatment as the patient’s needs and requirements change over time. The cornerstone of the Harris /Desai Botox program at Rejuvanence is the consistent and methodical injection technique developed from thousands of Botox injections.
Rejuvanence is blessed to have not one but two experienced licensed nurse practitioners Laura Triola, ARNP and Suzanne Reibling, ARNP who have worked in the cosmetic field for many years. Dr Harris and Desai are proud of Rejuvanence’s top quality Botox program and look forward to seeing you soon.

Botox®, sometimes called “a facelift in a bottle”, is a purified protein. When small doses are injected directly into the muscles, impulses from the nerves to the injected muscle causing the wrinkles are blocked – allowing them to relax. This relaxing of the muscle allows the skin to smooth out persistent lines that which developed over time.
Botox treatments usually last about 10-15 minutes and keep the muscles that cause lines relaxed up to 4-5 months. Results are dramatic and apparent within days and unlike surgery it is fast, simple and minimally invasive.
Q. Where is Botox® Cosmetic Used?
A. It is most effective for wrinkles that are visible when smiling, laughing, raising the eyebrows or for crow’s feet around the eyes. These wrinkles are called “dynamic” and tend to be much less noticeable when your face is completely relaxed. It also works well for bands in the neck.
Q. Am I a good candidate?
A. The best candidates for the procedure are those between ages of 25 and 65. In many cases, wrinkles in people over 65 are “static” and do not change when relaxing the face. Other procedures would work better for these patients, including Restylane injections. Each person is different however, and should undergo a consultation to determine the most effective treatment plan.
Q. How is Botox® Cosmetic Administered?
A. A very small amount of Botox® Cosmetic is injected into each of the target areas using a very small needle. Because the needle is fine, only a small amount of the liquid is injected and the associated discomfort is minimal. Most patients compare the sensation to a light pinch. No sedation or local anesthetic is necessary and you can resume normal activities immediately afterwards.
Q. Are the injections painful?
A. Botox injections are very small and done with a tiny needle that usually does not cause discomfort. The pressure sensation associated with the injection goes away very quickly and patients can return to normal activities immediately after the procedure.
Q. When will I notice the difference and how long will it last?
A. Botox treatment takes three to eight days to take full effect, which sometimes can be hastened by contracting the facial muscles. The results usually last from 3 to 5 months. Often, repeated treatments can lead to longer results. The effects of Botox® Cosmetic are confined to the treatment sites.
Q. What happens as treatment begins to wear off?
A. As the Botox treatment wears off the wrinkles will begin to reappear but frequently they are not as deep or noticeable. It requires three to four Botox injections to maintain the smooth, youthful appearance year round. With repeat treatments, the effects tend to last longer thus requiring fewer injections.
Q. Is there any downtime?
A. No. Most people return to work or normal activities immediately following treatment. It is recommended however, that you avoid exercise, heavy lifting and massaging the injected area for one day.
