Hello, I am interested in getting a doctor that can administer silicone injections in my acne scars. Please pass the doctor's name and phone to me so I may make an appointment. I am very embarrased about the holes in my face and do not want to be seen in the sunlight! |

: about the procedure. He said he's been
: doing it for years. Each visit will cost
: $700. Please share any information on the
