5 out of 5 stars Botox

Highly recommend Dr. Yu

I have had several Botox appointments with Dr. Yu and always been extremely happy with the outcome and his attention to detail. I live in Los Angeles but always travel to San Antonio to see him because I have been so impressed with the results I see. He is knowledgeable, helpful with any questions that I have, and always professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Yu.
