Hi! The $300 was for one treatment (I think). I've only had one treatment so far. Anusha said I should have another treatment in a few weeks. The spots are definitely lighter. I will post another pic soon. I still have a little bit of... READ COMMENT

You look beautiful! 65??? I love your posts and many of your words resonate with me. Yes, aren't we all seeking happiness? And aren't we all, by nature, vain? Congratulations. Please keep us posted. I was so happy to see your update. READ COMMENT

Right? Who wants deep nasiolabial folds? He did that without my even asking, and without charging me anything extra. He's my hero - and quite the expert. Thank you for your kind words. And yes, selection of doctor is everything. ... READ COMMENT
