Facial lines, like worn tires on a vintage roadster or a pie-covered sport coat, are simply signs of a life well lived. Stop inadvertently boasting with today's Groupon: for $119, you get 20 units of Botox at Ritacca Laser & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Vernon Hills (a $250 value).
Within an elegant, Italian-inspired med spa, Ritacca's board-certified physicians and registered nurses lighten lines and wrinkles with age-allaying Botox injections. During the 10- to 20-minute session, friendly staffers ensconce guests within a cream-colored treatment room replete with plush linens where a trained countenance coddler will gingerly inject a specialized dose of FDA-approved Botox formula into droopy skin surfaces, such as the regions around the eyes, forehead, or mouth. The serum then spreads throughout the offending furrow, relaxing each facial muscle by blocking nerve impulses and innate urges to impersonate Mr. Ed. Smoother, younger-looking skin often emerges within days, sometimes taking up to two weeks to achieve full crease-conquering results, after which clients can flaunt their newly ironed images for three to four months.
Botox may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening, including problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. Read all safety considerations for Botox here.
