People who are prone to cold sores may get one afterwards but if you alert the doctor to this, antiviral medication can be prescribed to prevent it.
• What happens if I did not continue treatment?
The skin will return to its original state but the filling and plumping effect on the skin will have delayed further development of wrinkles..
