5 out of 5 stars Dysport

Glabella and Crows Feet - Toms River, NJ

Dr. Small was very personable and the office was very friendly. I am very happy with my Dysport injections, my wrinkles are all gone! The office was very clean and his surgical coordinator Jennifer was very helpful in making my office visit a positive experience. I would not hesitate to go back to Dr. Small!
