Amazing experience. Went in for a tattoo removal. I got the numbing shot (highly recommend) and the actual removal process didn't hurt one bit. The whole staff is so friendly and they actually care about the results instead of just taking your money and rushing the process. Dr.Ritacca knows what he's talking about. You can trust him to do good work!
I have gone to Dr. Ritacca for several treatments and he is always extremely professional, provides choices in a treatment for me to decide what is the best option for me. I have complete confidence when i go him that i will be taken care of. I would'nt go anywhere else! Thank you Dr. Ritacca!

I had a procedure done on my eye lid to correct ptosis. Everyone was super friendly. I was very nervous and the staff made sure I was comfortable and relaxed going in to the procedure. The results were amazing. My eye looks almost completely normal. I still have a little swelling but that's because I heal slower. Dr Ritacca and his team did an amazing job!

I went there for my melasma treatment and I was very frustrated. Dr. Ritacca and Jennifer were not friendly to me esp after I told them that my melasma got worst.
