Harnessing the power of light, laser resurfacing treats a variety of dermal conditions, ranging from acne scars to age spots. Listen for these two categories of lasers: ablative (ones that remove thin layers of skin) and nonablative (those that tighten skin and stimulate collagen growth). LEARN MORE ›

I had laser skin resurfacing and my face looks worse than it did before the surgery. I had always wanted to remove freckles. Instead, I got hypopigmentation and clear scarring from the laser.What can I do to fix hyperpigmentation/scarring from Laser Skin Resurfacing? READ MORE

I've had two treatments so far... I pay $500 per visit without a contract, which I like. I don’t want to waste my money on packages that I don’t see any results. So far, I haven't and I don’t know if I can handle doing five as recommended for my scarring. This laser... READ MORE

I recovered really quickly! The first week was a drag...frozen pea bags for an hour on an hour off all day...applying Aquaphor, taking it off to do vinegar soaks every 3 hours...The goo was a mess...I had NO pain-didn't even take a Tylenol...My eyelids were swollen for a few days, but never...

I love love love the result Dr. Jason Emer has delivered with the Venus VIVA laser! It works on all skin types for facial rejuvenation...from fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, and texture. There is minimal downtime,the first 24 hours you will be somewhat swollen, but that subsides. Your... READ MORE

At 61, this procedure was done when I had blephroplasty and soof lift surgery so I was sedated. The discomfort afterwards was minimal even though it was done fairly deep. After a week the weeping had mostly ceased and by 2 weeks I could apply makeup. The healing was uneventful and I had... READ MORE

VERY DISAPPOINTED. I still have striped scarring on my chin and white spots on my cheek. It was performed by Dr. Dreshen himself. I was burned on a number of spots and regret my decision to have this done with this particular Dr. I have had laser resurfacing and other procedures done in the past... READ MORE

I just had my second of three fractional laser resurfacing treatments. First, I want to say it is a very painful treatment. The first treatment I had swelling and some redness and a little breakout for about 4 days. This treatment I am experiencing excessive swelling especially around my... READ MORE

I am 63 and have spent mu entire life in the sun. I was raised on the beaches in California; backyard pool, 3 ,miles from the beach, water skiing and on our sailboat. I came to Colorado. became a ski instructor, backpacker, hiker, bicycle rider and am now an avid golfer. Needless to say a LOT... READ MORE

Staff was nice, doctor was, in my opinion, completely dishonest in what the expectations would be for laser. I asked him straight out, what would I look like the following days after the procedure. He showed me a photo of a woman with a slight sunburn. Not bad at all. So I went through with it.... READ MORE

I had laser resurfacing done, physician recommended! Day one was visually intense, very red, hot and uncomfortable, then it was over! The next 2 days, I needed to hibernate because it looked a bit scary, but it did not hurt, it was very tight, and needed to follow the directions of Dr.... READ MORE

Met with Dr Stephen, Prendiville and his wife and staff, they were all very friendly. I am not at all satisfy with this procedure. I had the procedure done and the doctor was scheduled for his vacation time, so when I went for my visit, not sure in what order they were in but earlier this... READ MORE

I finally got a ball park figure from 3 doctors i thought might be good. called late in afternoon to talk about a appointment with dr howard liu. a man answered cedar sinai and i stated what i wanted. he said a $100.00 consultation and i said i needed a answer of the costs prior to paying him...

I've had a handful of low cost photo / laser facials before. I would always get them when they were on Groupon for $100. They were ok. I could always see a little improvement in my skin. My friend told me I was wasting money and needed to go see Dr. Jason Emer. SHE WAS RIGHT! They do a... READ MORE

Now, I wouldn't be caught dead in the sun without a great SPF and hat! But, the damage is done. A very trusted friend suggested I have a treatment called Clear & Brilliant Permea. I was not hesitant because I have worked with the staff at Davis Plastic Surgery in the past and knew they would... READ MORE

I went to a board certified dermatologist who was highlt recommended. I asked many questions before leaving for CR. I was told that I needed to stay for one week after my deep laser resurfacing as there would be quite a mess on my face. I had almost no obvious results from the procedure except... READ MORE

This is the first review I've ever left. Dr. Weiland performed Erbium resurfacing on me 6 years ago. Since then, I've been working hard to save money for treatments that could repair/improve the damage and scars. It was obvious after the healing had finished, that I was left with severely...

I have been interested in Fraxel for the treatment of hyper pigmentation of the face for about a year now. I have occasional breakouts where I pick at my face (severely) and now I have dark spots, probably from sun damage as well as picking. That being said, I know that faxel is the most... READ MORE

I had laser resurfacing on my face with Dr. Jason Emer of Mountain View, CA in August of 2013. I read many reviews on this website and was nervous about the recovery. Honestly, it wasn't that bad at all. Around the third day my face felt very tight, like I had put a mud mask on that needed to... READ MORE

This very "aclaimed" starlux tratment is expensive, painfull, and doesnt work. I had all the treatments done on my stretch marks, and my stretch marks weren't that bad really, and it simply didn't work at all! I was told to wait 6 months to see any improvements after my last teatment at HARLEY... READ MORE
