Have another account on real self under Azteca305. As soon as I hit the BIG 40, it was time to stop wishing & start working on that body & appearance I always wished for. I'm about 4 months post-op (5 procedures). Now, I'm concerned with the fine lines under my eyes that are starting to become visible & when I use concealer for my dark circles, those pesky lines are screaming for attention. ... more
Terrible experience. The injector did not inform me that I even had a choice to try, for the first time, try try a filler that is HA based, which has an antidote or Radiesse, which has not antidote for its effects.
The injector did not, as I learned later, approach me with any form of an aesthetic analysis, nor analyze my facial proportions using "Hinger's lines". She just use some cookie... more
I'm 38 years old and in the past year I realized that the more I worked out, the more gaunt my face looked. I love the way my body looks when I'm eating well and working out however my face began to look skinny and hollowed out.

I have a very faint shadow bruise on one... more

Now- I feel better than ever!!! Pics will be posted shortly! Thank you Dr. Shino Bay! ( notice in cost, there were 4 sessions of... more
I am very experienced in cosmetic procedures without looking like I am. This time I made a mistake. I became overly comfortable with my Dr. and became chatty about kids etc. Should have kept my eye or mirror on the ball! I had Radiesse one time before. I had it on my nasal lines down to my mouth ( ). At that time, she put a tiny bit in on one little wrinkle I had under my mouth, and it turned... more
I had Radiesse in my cheeks on 2 occassions. The first time had 1 syringe in each and paid about $1800. I was happy at first and had no complaints. The issue was hat it didnt last more that a few mths tops. Tried again a yr later and had a 3rd syringe put in. Same issue with it not lasting so my PS gave me Juvederm. Again no complaints exceot that it didnt last. Unless you can afford the... more
