When choosing a medical practitioner to administer a neuro-modulator like botox/dysport/xeomin/Jeuveau (TOX℠) or a Dermal Filler ( Juvederm, Voluma, Radiesse +, Restylane Silk/Lyft/Defyne/Refyne, Versa) or TCA Chemical Peel, laser treatments (Facial rejuventation, laser peels, TightSculpting, Hair, wart, Tattoo removal, nail fungus, vaginal rejuventation), IPL, Microneedling with Radio Frequency, Hydrafacial, it is imperative to choose a highly experienced and accomplished Aesthetic Practitioner. If shopping for price on a product remember that the materials may be the same but the Artist is more of what you are paying for. Not all Chefs are created equal nor is everyone a Michelangelo. After all it is your face, so choose wisely when  looking for an aesthetic specialist to perform facial enhancement procedures or you may end up having to have someone else fix or “re-do” what has been done and spend twice as much.

Choose a successful, highly accomplished and experienced Medical Provider for your cosmetic injections. Rita Medical Elite should be your first choice when selecting those criteria.

Wouldn’t you rather have an experienced, proven, successful and highly recommended Practitioner who is also chosen to treat most of the Sarasota Medical Community as well?

Why do you think this is? Well, come into Rita Medical Elite and be one of their Elite clients with a 100% customer satisfaction.
