State-of-the-art facility offers the latest in injectables, laser treatments, hormone therapy and more.
FORT MYERS, Fla. (May 14, 2021) – Just two years after opening, Face It Botox Bar has moved into their new permanent, larger facility at 12424 Brantley Commons Court in South Fort Myers.
Established in the Fall of 2018 by Ryann Lavenia, CRNA, APRN, Face It Botox Bar has grown from two to 11 employees and provides personalized aesthetic skin care services and procedures for men and women.
“Obviously the pandemic was not necessarily the ideal time to purchase a freestanding building, make extensive interior renovations and incur expenses for new equipment, furniture, computer systems and more,” said Lavenia, a Fort Myers native who attended Bishop Verot High School before going on to become a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) in Albany, NY. “But with the exponential growth of our business and clientele, we ran out of room at our previously leased office space and had to make a change. We feel very blessed that out of tough challenges come great opportunities.”
According to Grand View Research, the global facial injectable market size was valued at $13.4 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 8.8 percent from 2021 to 2028. A growing focus on physical appearance among consumers has led to an increased demand for facial injectable in recent years.
Face It Botox Bar’s new space includes 2,500 square feet and 10 rooms to provide aesthetic services including injectable treatments, laser, laser resurfacing (Halo), IV nutrition, hormone replacement therapy, a variety of facial treatments and Qwo, the first and only FDA-approved injectable for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women.
“COVID has increased the time spent on video calls with many adults becoming more aware of their appearance. Botox is one of the most popular products preferred,” Lavenia said.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, from the year 2000 to 2018, Botox injections increased by 845 percent. North America is expected to be a key revenue generator for facial injectables in the coming years.
Lavenia is a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist and Advanced Practice Registered Nurse with more than 21 years of experience in the medical profession. She is a graduate of the Albany Medical School Nurse Anesthesia Program. In 2005, she moved back to Fort Myers and began her practice as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist. Lavenia is experienced in a variety of specialties including plastic and cosmetic surgery in Southwest Florida. In 2016, she advanced her expertise and became certified in Botox and Dermal Fillers.
She has also received several advanced trainings with Allergan, the leading medical Aesthetic company to specialize in advanced techniques in the Aesthetic field. In September 2018, she was chosen into Swift Beauty, an Advanced Injection Therapy Course featuring Dr. Arthur Swift & Dr. Steve Fagien, some of the top injectors in the world. In 2021, Scition chose Lavenia as a company liaison and educator.
In addition to Lavenia, Face It Botox Bar includes a qualified team of APRNs and Medical Aestheticians.
Albania Crosby oversaw the construction and Jeniver Piatt completed the interior design.
Face It Botox Bar was recently named Best Medspa (second year in a row) and Best Injectors for Gulfshore Life Magazine’s 2021 Best of the Gulfshore.
