Botox is the first FDA-approved treatment designed to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines look better in adults.

During treatment sessions, Botox is injected into your skin and blocks nervous signals from reaching your muscles. This prevents unwanted muscle contractions like facial wrinkles, lazy eye, chronic migraines, neck spasms, and certain neurological conditions like cerebral palsy.
We understand that you may be concerned about the safety of Botox, since it’s based on the toxin that’s known to cause botulism. However, these dangerous effects come from large amounts of exposure. Botox treatments are administered in small, harmless doses that are carefully controlled and managed by Dr. Riolo, a board-certified plastic surgeon.
Though Botox injections are safe, minor side effects that may accompany treatments include swelling, headache, and slight pain. Before beginning any treatments, we consult with you to develop a treatment plan that gives you the best results.
