5 out of 5 stars Voluma

Dr. Lakshman is The Best Cosmetic Surgeon Out There!

I'm beyond thrilled and happy with my results. Dr. Shankar Lakshman is an artist, incredibly informative and professional. I've had other procedures/injectables elsewhere and nothing compares to Dr. Lakshman's technique. His staff is amazing too! He helped me achieve the restful and subtle look I was hoping for. No pain or bruising. I will not go ANYWHERE else for my anti-aging treatments.
