“Two weeks ago I visited the Bonakdar team for some much-needed face rejuvenation. I had Sculptra on my neck — huge improvement!! Also had Botox and different types of filler in various areas of my face to address age-related facial concerns. The results are amazing—I’m so pleased. I look so refreshed and perhaps more youthful.
