Went to see Dr. Gordon today and was very impressed with how painless the procedure was. I have had fillers before but never done like this. I am very happy with the results so far and cannot wait to come back in 4 weeks for the rest.

Flawless process, couldn’t recommend Dr Gordon any more highly - painless, quick, and perfect procedure. He’s great, super friendly, and my eyes are 20-20 6 months later with 0 issues! Highly recommended!
