For a quick touch up under my eyes for Bags supposedly a better otion than surgery, It has been over 2 years and my Eyes look like crap. I had to have surgery to remove the sculptra because it hardened and turned into lumpy nodules. My eyes uses to be my best feature and now my worst. I am a... READ MORE

Cons - none really, except some swelling that takes a good 5 or so days to go down. No one noticed until I pointed it out, but I was aware of it and wouldn't do it less than a week before I had to do anything special. Pros - it's so subtle no one notices except you. It also last much... READ MORE

I wish I would have seen this website prior to getting my Sculptra injections. I had injections done under both eyes. First in November 2007 and again in January 2008. After the first injection, I developed a pea sized lump under my left eye. My dermatologist told me it would go away. I had the... READ MORE

As to pain, it for sure hurt. I've had botox, Ultra Light Therapy, Microdermabrasion, and 3 root canals with crowns, and this hurt the most! But next time, I'll insist on a Lortab before the treatment, if my doctor will do it. I will see. If not, I'll still endure it. I've... READ MORE

{edited} {by Britt user asked to fix misspellings} Like most women who are at the crux of baby boomer land where you start to disappear (meaning no one notices you much anymore), I wasn’t ready to give up and get in the rocker. My appearance was always something I sort of relied... READ MORE

No one ever informs you of the true cost or pain involved. Many shots in my temple, chin & nose areas. Thought I was having a root canal and the shots became so painful I tried to get out of my chair but they would not let me. I said to stop: "it is too painful", but the doctor just said, "I...

My dr. used Scultra to add fulless to the volume loss I had from aging. I have used other fillers as well as Botox and this was a great xcombination as it works over the course of time, promoting collagen. It has made a big difference. The important thing to remeber is that it is not just the... READ MORE

My cosmetic dermatologist is a superb injector. She is the best of the best. I have no choice but to blame the product itself, Sculptra, for the lump that formed under my left eye. According to the PI sheet, about 1 in 5 patients develop lumps. I thought I could beat those odds by having a good... READ MORE

I wanted to look younger...that was my motivation. Turning 60 was around the corner and I felt gaunt and unattractive and the doctor played right into my insecurities. I never really noticed much of a difference anyway afterwards. Never go see this doctor and never get Sculptra. My... READ MORE

I went to see Dr Papageorgiou about a year ago and I was looking for subtle interventions to make me look fresher. I was coming up to 40 and just wanted my face to look rejuvenated without necessarily going down the surgical route. The consultation process was superb, he put me at ease straight... READ MORE

It's now early December and just in the past week I've had a large amount of increase in volume (my temples are too big) and also a small visible... READ MORE

I am 37 years old, and have noticed drooping skin around my chin and jaw area in the last few years. I was recomended by a friend to visit Dr. Gladstein, so I came in for a free consultation. First of all, her office is just stunning, and I did not mind the 15 minute wait time, as I was just... READ MORE

I have always been very thin but as most very thin people know, you don't want too thin of a face. Especially as I was getting older, it seemed like my cheeks were disappearing. I did sculptura with my dermatologist about 9 months ago. Dr Ibrahimi recommended that I give botox a try first for... READ MORE

I was cautious about having dermal filler put in my face because i don't want to look like a seeker of the fountain of youth!

VERY HAPPY! This is the first Doctor I came across, who TRUELY took his time and listened. Several consultations I had with other Doctors before him felt rushed. I said Juvederm to cheeks, under eyes and lips, Drs said ok. Dr Khorsandi on the contrary advised me of different materials that... READ MORE

I am a long term patient and huge fan of Dr. Kopelman. Recently, we used Sculptra to fill out facial hollows and wrinkles. As with everything he does, Dr. Kopelman exercised extreme care in how he explained, planned for, and performed the procedure. It was painless and, as always, easy, as Dr.... READ MORE

At my first appointment with Dr. Parvin Shafa in Irvine, CA, she complained to me how little money she is making in medicine. That should have been my first warning sign. She says one thing and then when you call her on it, she denies even saying it. I paid her $2,400 for 4 vials and... READ MORE
