Temple Veins Zapped Last Week - San Diego, CA

Two Weeks out from Ulthera - San Diego, CA

It takes time and is gradual. Hopefully you will not have damage. READ COMMENT

Hi, I have been through the same thing as you and understand what you are going through. I started with a thin face and ended up looking sunked in and haggard. I used Sculptra with a very qualified Dermatologist. Do not do sculptra... READ COMMENT
