Safe Health PC is outstanding! I visited there with challenging and old acne that was not getting cured! I tried many other skin doctors in Lansing and their medications did not work at all. In fact my acne got even worse. Their treatment was very effective and my acnes start reducing. My skin is looking great again. Their prices are very reasonable for the amazing care I got!
I would definitely recommend Safe Health PC. I got my Botox treatment done from this clinic and it was perfect. Dr. Fatteh gave me all the information regarding the procedure. The procedure was a success and the results were amazing. My skin looks younger now and wrinkles are gone. I am definitely looking forward to my next sitting.
