I had a Juvaderm filler procedure for my cheeks and lines around my nose and mouth. Dr. Knight and his assistant were very professional, explaining the procedure and what benefits I could expect as well as any side effects. I have had this procedure done elsewhere and I was not happy with the results. However, the results from Dr. Knight were very good with bruising lasting about 5 days but easy to cover with makeup. He took a lot of time addressing problem areas and using the Juvaderm filler to make a positive impact. I would definitely recommend Dr. Knight if you are looking to have this type of procedure.

What a thorough visit - Dr. Knight truly knows what he is doing. I had a little bump on my arm and was concerned about sun damage. Turns out it was just a weird skin tag and was removed in one sitting. They even sent it out to confirm it was benign and it came back clear!
