Fine Lines and Wrinkles,
Lip Augmentation, Pouting and Contouring
spent a fortune on creams that claimed to plump out the wrinkles
and banish those “smokers” lines above my lip, and I don’t even
smoke! I hated those lines, they made me look as old as my mother.
Also, the lines from my nose to the corners of my mouth made
me look drawn and older looking. None of the creams worked!
I was a little nervous so I opted for a free consultation to
discuss what the treatment would entail and how it might benefit
me. I was so impressed by Sherman’s credentials, experience
and patient manner, I decided to have the treatment done then
and there. The treatment was virtually painless and the effect
was immediate. Thank you Sherman, I love my new, softer, younger
