“Liquid Facelifts” – Dr. Jean Carruthers Speaks to Global News

Last week at the World Congress of Dermatology in Vancouver, Dr. Carruthers presented a study in which she found 98 published cases of patients left blind, the side effect from mistakenly injecting into a blood vessel.

As Dr. Carruthers discusses in the clip below, this is another reason why it is important to find an experienced, qualified physician, such as Dr. Humphrey who is seen doing a series of injections on camera here, to perform any cosmetic procedure.
