Thank You, I'm so happy with the treatment can't wait to go back and do other treatments, the staff was very nice, caring. And the Doctor very professional and at the same time very calm makes you feel comfortable. The G spot injection didn't hurt at all. I sent a picture of my lips which by the next day I started getting lots of complements. Thank You. Ada
