I went to Dr Kim last week to get botox for a bilateral masseter reduction. He was very professional, helpful, and I am excited to see the results! It was clear that he tailored his approach to patients; spending more time with the woman before me who had dozens of questions and straight to the point with me (exactly how I like it).

I am getting back to some lifting now and, now that I know this is an easy and relatively inexpensive option, will check-in with Dr. Kim in a few months to see if any minor touch-ups are required. I just wish I knew this was an option YEARS ago when this first became an issue.
