I am 26 years old and have suffered from acne since middle school. I have seen a dermatologist ever since I was 18 years old, and been put on numerous different oral medications and face creams. I have done a couple chemical peels at my dermatologist office and silk peels also. I wanted to try... READ MORE

I've had acne since I was 13, but it didn't get really bad until I was in college when I developed cystic acne. By the time I was 22, I chose to get on Accutane. I have since had microdermabrasion (12x), laser resurfacing (6x), and injectibles. I wasn't getting the results I needed so here I am... READ MORE

I've made and canceled this procedure 3 different times. My husband and my friends all feel I'm making a mistake. Even two of the women who work in the scheduling department feel I don't need to do this.They think I'm CRAZY!!! But I have so many acne scars all over my face and I would love to... READ MORE

I had a procedure call "Derma Pen". It was performed in the office of Dr. Christina Steil, Hinsdale, IL by her nurse, Kathy Mandarino. It's a device shaped like a pen with tiny needles at the end of it (which are discarded after each patient). It aerates, tightens and smoothes the skin. It... READ MORE

Dermaplanning was done by the aesthetician at this doctor's office and she ruined my face. This procedure is suppose to be a procedure with no down time. At the time I noticed the bleeding/redness, but it was downplayed. Woke up the next morning with deep cuts ALL over my face (24 cuts total).... READ MORE

I had ldot lazer with Dr. Leeman and the review that states he cannot be bothered to answer your questions post surgery is quite right. He cannot be reached. I had an office visit scheduled for after surgery and he went to another appointment and never saw me, then I made another one and he had... READ MORE

In 1995 (when I was young & stupid) I went to an acne skin care clinic and complained about my large pores, especially the ones around my nose. At that time, I never heard of lasers although they were already in use. The doctor, who represented himself as a dermatologist, told me the only... READ MORE

I am a 54 yr old woman and I had spot dermabrasion to remove a few scars on my face. Now the scars are defintely larger and deeper. Fillers are expensive and painful, and non eneding. So what else can a person do? It has only been 41/2 wks since my dermabrasion but I am hoping I didn't mess... READ MORE

I had a few very minor wrinkles around my lip. i'm not sure if the dermabrasion procedure was worth it yet, if i have to keep covering the pink color with makeup, i'd say no, still being patient hoping final result will be an improvement. now 4.5 months post surgery and... READ MORE

My dermabrasion was done in an outpatient surgery center by a plastic surgeon. I was put to sleep while it was done. My face was raw and took between one and two weeks to heal. Then my skin was red for months which had to be hidden with makeup. Then my face was somewhat hypopigmented and... READ MORE

I can't remember the exact cost since it was so long ago (1880's), plus some of the fee is outpatient facility and anesthesia. I had a general anesthetic so of course I didn't feel anything. I don't remember pain afterward, I don't even remember if I had pain pills afterward, but probably did. I... READ MORE
