Injectables. What can go wrong?

This lady has been my patient for a full year now. I first met her on November 26th last year. She’d never had any injectables but was keen to try some anti wrinkle treatment in her early 40s. This is with her full consent. This lady took a year almost to the day- dark sunken […]
