About 2 months after the second injection. This doctor has done all my previous injections, so I know his experience or skill level was not an issue. I should also say I'm 36 so it's not like I have major sagging or wrinkling, which... READ COMMENT

Hi there, I understand that sometimes as we age a lower level of body fat can have detrimental effects on the face and people can sometimes look gaunt. I'm not especially skinny, but I have an angular face and people have always... READ COMMENT
