30 Minute Refresh

Cosmetic injection treatments in your lunch break

The “30 Minute Refresh” combines the use of anti-wrinkle injections for upper facial lines like the frown lines and crow’s feet with Dermal Filler products for the lower facial areas.

For more information on secondary hyperhidrosis, see Medical News Today.
