After years of domination in the cosmetic industry, BOTOX® is still widely considered to be one of the safest and most effective anti-aging procedures in the world. Using an advanced formula, BOTOX® can significantly soften some of the most common signs of aging, also known as expression lines.
Repeated facial muscle movements for decades eventually lead to the development of wrinkles in the parts of our faces that express emotion, thus the moniker “expression lines.” BOTOX® is a neuromodulator, meaning it can block nerve impulses, which relax the muscles in our faces that cause the development of crow’s feet, laugh lines, frown lines and more, creating a more youthful and smoother appearance. BOTOX® can also work as a treatment for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and eye and neck muscle spasms.
As an injectable, BOTOX® can be delivered in one quick treatment with results that can last for multiple months. Decades of use by millions of patients around the world and multiple clinical trials have shown that BOTOX® is safe and reliable for long-term, repeated use.

Your BOTOX® treatment needs to be performed with skill and artistry to create the most natural, long-lasting results. That’s why your consultation at Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa is so essential for planning the right treatment; during your consultation with our experienced patient coordinator, we will discuss your aesthetic goals, the risks and benefits of the procedure, your medical history, examine before and after photos, and answer any questions you might have about the procedure.
Your consultation will go a long way towards helping us plan the perfect BOTOX® treatment, so we can give you the rejuvenated look you’ve always wanted.
Your BOTOX® procedure will be incredibly quick, simple, and relatively painless—the procedure takes less than a half an hour to complete and no anesthesia is required. BOTOX® is typically injected into areas like around the eyes, forehead, and mouth to specifically target expression areas.
Some patients may experience mild bruising at the injection sites, but in general, BOTOX® does not require any downtime or recovery period. If bruising occurs, it should go away in a matter of days.
