Questions from k2014

Pearl Fractional done 4 years ago. Why have I got pinmarks and lines around mouth, upper lip/chin area?

OK, I have been to Wulc, a few times. All of these procedures were not $5,000. Yes, you look good, but Please show everyone an up close picture of you not smiling. READ COMMENT

Hey Johnny, It's been a while since we have corresponded. Hope things are better for you. I used the lowest cortisone cream for 10 days because my eyes are not healing like they should be after a Hetter peel. A low dose is not too... READ COMMENT
