Botox helps you feel great in your skin!
As the years go by, we have to face the physical changes that take hold. For some, this means losing confidence and feeling prematurely aged. You shouldn’t look older than you feel, and Botox is one way to get your exterior and interior on the same page.
If you’ve thought about wrinkle treatment in the past, then you know a little bit about Botox. But rumors about the “scary” side of these injections may have held you back from trying Botox for yourself. Dr. Michael Ricciardi is here to tell you more about what Botox treatment really means, and why it’s safe for facial wrinkles.

How Botox Works
Botox is a neuromuscular junction inhibitor, meaning it blocks the mechanism of communication between muscles and nerve endings. By disrupting this process, the medication stops the specific muscles in the area from contracting. This is effective for 3-6 months from the treatment date, depending on the location on the injections. You will see facial lines in the area smooth out, and new wrinkles will be prevented from forming.
Is Botox Safe?
Botox has been the top minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in the U.S. for years, making it incredibly popular (and now a household name). But is it safe for you to receive?
When you receive Botox treatment in recommended doses from a qualified provider, it is safe, and only the target facial muscles will be affected. Dentists are uniquely suited to provide Botox because they are intimately acquainted with the facial musculature. Dr. Ricciardi has received cosmetic injection training from the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, and is able to deliver the kind of results for which you’ve been hoping.
