5 out of 5 stars Botox

I Love my Botox - Santa Monica, CA

I am an actress and Dr. behnam did the best Botox on me. He spend enough time explaining how he is gonna do the injection and the results feel great.. I had gone to other places begfore and the results were not great. I felt very comfortable when he was injecting the botox, it did not even hurt. Happy. Highly recommend.
