It's Apparent She Loves Her Job - Encinitas, CA

I went to Dr. P for Dysport. She performs great procedures that yield excellent outcomes - I was extremely happy with my results. She is friendly and warm...not to mention beautiful. She has an excellent bedside manner - she gives explanation/education at every step of the service she is providing. She definitely made me feel comfortable and completely at ease.

Outstanding Doc--very Thorough and Kind - Encinitas, CA

Really kind. Surprised how thorough her skin exam is! She even checked in my mouth. She was really knowledgeable and answered several questions I had. Seems like one stop shopping--I read her bio and she does tons of cosmetic stuff in addition to general derm. I was so impressed I decided to do Botox a couple of months later. She's got a gentle hand.

5 out of 5 stars Restylane Silk

The Best Lip Filler - Restalyne Silk!! - Solana Beach, CA

Dr. Palm is incredibly skilled in the latest state-of-the-art procedures, products and equipment. No doctor has ever before injected my lips without bruising, but she did! She is brilliant at the art of cosmetic dermatology, is honest and realistic, cares about her patients and takes every step to accomplish beautiful results without unnecessary discomfort. Several of my friends referred me to Dr. Palm, and I can't stop thanking them! We all consider ourselves very lucky to be her patients! Her office is efficient, organized, beautiful and staffed by wonderful women. Truly, I have never been to a doctor's office that even comes close.

Resurfx Treatment - Solana Beach, CA

This was my 5th or 6th visit to Dr. Palm and team, and again, it was great. The procedure went smoothly as usual, and everyone here is nice, down to earth, and knowledgable. They seem to really like what they do. I really trust this team, as they have not steered me wrong. I also appreciate that they are mindful of my budget, and never try to push anything on me, and are great about allowing me to stretch out my visits to fit my budget. The Freshen Up Friday deals are also a great way to save money on the most popular treatments.

5 out of 5 stars IPL

IPL Treatment - Solana Beach, CA

As per usual, Dr. Palm and her staff were A+. Everything was just as expected, and they explained everything perfectly. I had no real discomfort, and went straight to work afterwards. This could not have gone smoother. I would definately recommend Dr. Palm and team for this procedure.

Voluma, Juvederm Ultra Plus and Botox For My Tired/ Mad Face. - Solana Beach, CA

5 out of 5 stars Liposculpture

Amazing Results! So Worth the Flight to See Dr. Palm! - Solana Beach, CA

Dr Palm was attentive, informative, clear to understand, down to earth and willing to answer all of my questions. During the procedure she was very professional & made me feel very confident that I was in good hands. I was a little nervous of course, but felt very confident in her ability. Her staff is amazing as well. I e-mailed extensively and all my questions were answered in a timely manner. I wish they would all move to Utah!!!

5 out of 5 stars Sculptra

Going Under the Knife is Not an Option for Me...Sculptra's Results Are More Natural Looking - Solana Beach, CA

I've had a few different treatments with Dr. Palm now & I must say I couldn't be happier. She's certainly not the cheapest Dr. around, but she is certainly the BEST in her field. I will take the BEST any day over whatever it costs to get the BEST results. After all, you are talking about your FACE.
