I've been searching for a doctor (lived in LA for many years) to correct the dreaded "Joker" smile (a result of Radiesse and poorly injected Restylane). I relocated to New Mexico and found Dr. Hopkins (referred by acquaintance). He was wonderful-spent a long time examining my face, discussing options, and as he is very conservative (I really appreciate this approach), he suggested less than 2 cc Botox to correct the muscle pulling, that gave the unnatural effect when I smiled. He also injected Botox for my crows feet and wrinkles between the eyebrows-30 cc total. He is a master injector-no bruising! But best of all, my smile is soo much more natural now!
Dr. Hopkins is all you could want in a cosmetic surgeon—Board Certified, excellent bedside manner, very skilled injector and believes in a less is more philosophy.
