I went to Dr. Kates due to wrinkled skin around my eyes and aging skin on face. He was exceptional! Very patient with all my questions, has a great personality and is clearly an excellent dermatologist. He discussed pros and cons of laser resurfacing so that I knew what I was signing up for...

It's not exactly a walk in the park. Not that there's pain but it's very very uncomfortable. Your face feels tight and swollen and slightly burned. All you do is grease it with aquaphor And cleanse it with Cetaphll....after a couple of days you feel very crusty and itchy. The keyword here is... READ MORE

I had only mildly noticeable lines around my mouth and mild acne scars. CO2 took out all my pigment, (think ghost), destroyed skin laxity, pitted and left lesion like marks all over my skin. Four years out and I've aged 20 years. Its only getting worse. Skin is waxy, dimpled and mottled. This... READ MORE

Bought into the benefits of V-shape and pixeling for my aging skin. Had approx. 5 treatments total and saw absolutely no difference. The pixeling hurts so badly, I wanted to come off the table a few times. Numbing cream does nothing for the pain either, (I did it both ways.) Oh, and sorry... READ MORE

I have struggled with back acne my whole life. I would tan to hid the scars and that seemed to work till I stopped tanning. Once I got pale all I could see was scaring. I decided to have laser resurfacing. Before I got it done I did 3 chemical peels between 3 months on my back to remove some... READ MORE

As I close in on retirement, I wanted to get rid of my wrinkles and look more youthful. It's almost time to really enjoy life. Most of my wrinkles are gone or almost gone, but I have been left deformed. One side of my lip is much higher than the other. Dr. Salzman's fix is I can pay for more... READ MORE

I came to Dr. ERICKSON a few months after a terrible motorcycle accident. I landed on my face fracturing my right eye socket and 40 stitches in my forehead over my right eye. After healing, I was left with uneven eyebrows and a scar. I looked as if I were questioning everyone. I also had age... READ MORE

I travel often to Prague for spa and thermal bath treatments. Was looking for aesthetic clinic in Prague but was not sure about the staff, and in foreign country unless you do not read review and have no recommendation it is quite difficult to decide where to go. I met the lady from Saudi ... READ MORE

I had erbium laser resurfacing on the 7th of July 2014. I had a test area done first ( at the Doctors request) so the price includes that as well . I am 30 years old and have/had mild-moderate acne scars most of which are about 12 years old although I had a cystic acne flare up after my son was... READ MORE

Although I've used sunscreen regularly since I was in my early twenties, I still had tell-tale signs of sun damage that were getting more difficult to cover as I get older. I've only done one treatment and I'm so happy with the results! It was fairly quick and relatively painless, and while I... READ MORE

I don't know for sure if one laser treatment wa enough. It's been two weeks and I still have some redness. It's much paler and less noticeable and now makeup or tinted sunscreen covers pretty well. It's not perfect but I got a discount so I'd do it over and may have it done again if the redness... READ MORE

Pro's: th finally have an even complexion free from dark spots...Would like to eliminate some of the fine lines from sun damage. Eliminate the need to use cover up make up every day. Con's: the fear of scarring.How much downtime for recuperation will be needed. How much pain to expect after... READ MORE

Background: I've had a series of birthmarks on my legs since birth. I believe they're called cafe au lait. They're flat and brown in color and, since middle school, I've grown increasingly self-conscious and depressed about my birthmark. I don't expose my legs. I'm currently a 17 year old... READ MORE

I had thoroughly researched laser resurfacing and specialists prior to making any commitment. Dr Davin Lim seemed to be the best choice to perform this procedure and I wasn't disappointed...I was ecstatic! Dr Lim's open, casual but caring and professional manner made me feel at ease at every... READ MORE

Laser Resurfacing took years off my face. So satisified w/Dr Zaworski & his assistant Susan. I would recommend it to anyone that would like to look 15 years younger. My face was as smooth as when I was 12 yrs old. Do not have to wear heavy makeup. Everyone that sees me now think I look... READ MORE

Just had the Dot Laser treatment done on my entire face today and holy sh*t did it hurt! I've had other laser treatments done before such as fraxel (sp?) and other high tech laser treatments but know one prepared me for how this was going to feel. In fact, everyone told me it would hurt less... READ MORE

I had a significant amount of sun damage, some acne scarring, large pores and generally was unhappy with my skin. I joined the facial club at Sanctuary Med Spa and agreed to have 3 Pixel laser treatments and 6 IPL treatments in addition to the club facials. I've had the first Pixel, 2 IPL and... READ MORE

I'm 56 years old, good skin and genes. Twice yearly botox to crows feet / between eyes. Recently had 'Erbium Resurfacing' to under eyes and top lip. AMAZING! .. However, it was extremely painful ! Certainly not for the faint hearted. Numbing cream applied 1st for 30 mins, then 11 extremely... READ MORE

I was scarred and the RN burned me. Laser settings too high, which left me initially with purple water blisters on chest then when healed, permanent white scars in the tip of the laser. I've been trying for over 2 years to get these scars fixed and can't. I can't wear any V neck... READ MORE

I had suffered with sun damaged skin from years of past sun exposure. I thought there was such a thing as a healthy tan, but I was so wrong. A dermatologist who was treating me told me about Dr. Scheiner, and I was thrilled when I met him. He told me he could help me reverse the years of sun... READ MORE
