Donate your wrinkles to help find a cure for breast cancer!

About 2 years ago, after following up with a breast reconstruction patient, and injecting his next patient with BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dr. Paul G. Ruff IV, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon had a revelation. "What if we held a BOTOX® and Juvéderm® injection fundraiser and donated 100% of the proceeds to finding a cure for breast cancer?" With that, the annual "Wrinkle Erase for the Cure" was born. Friday, October 14th. 7:00am to 7:00pm Ruff Plastic Surgery 2440 M Street. NW Second Floor, Suite 200
