Bio-Alcamid - 1st Treatment Results

May 12, 2005

He had 1.5-2 phase wasting, veins under his eyes, sunkin cheeks and deep furrows to his chin. In 30 mins he looks 10 years younger. The doctor was Dr. Francis Beninger in Toronto (416-925-5775) and he was terrific, explaining everything in detail with great bed side mannor. (he was the doctor for all the pics on He injected 5CCs (cubic centimeters) on each side, 4 into each cheek and 1 in the outer cheekbone area and down the furrows. Slight swelling which varies with the person. The cost was $1900.00CND (1.25 exchange). A low income program should be avaliable soon. The only regret I have is waiting this long to get my partner this treatment. I can't give a higher recommondation for the product or Dr. Beninger. Jeffrey...
