OR MOTH PATCHES.
Blemishes on the face, called
Moth, are very annoying, particularly to ladies of light complexion, as the
discolored spots on the skin show more strongly on blondes than on brunettes,
but they contribute greatly in marring the beauty on either; and anything that
will remove moth patches without injuring the skin in texture or color, would no
doubt be considered a great achievement in medical science. Dr. B. C. PERRY, 49
Bond Street, having devoted his whole time and attention to Diseases of the
Skin, will guarantee to remove Moth Patches and other discolorations from the
face without injury to either texture or color of the skin. His success in this,
as in other branches of his speciality—DISEASES OF THE SCALP and LOSS OF
HAIR—will warrant him in guaranteeing a CURE IN EVERY CASE. For particulars
enclose stamp for circular. No charge for consultation. DR. B. C. PERRY, 49 BOND
