Very Happy with Results - Mountain View, CA

I had the perimeter of my face done two weeks ago...

I had the perimeter of my face done two weeks ago and am very impressed with the results. Over the past 3 years I have lost 50lb and also hit 50 years so I started getting jowls!

My chin and neck has really firmed up and there is a lift to my brow - eyes look more open and jaw line is more defined. I am thrilled with the look because it is very natural. I say I look like I did 10 years ago.

It does hurt and I wouldn't even consider trying it without a pain block and Demerol. With the drugs I was fine and afterwards you only have a bit of soreness.

Wow that is so awesome!  It sounds like it worked really well for you.    We would LOVE to see before/after shots when you have them 50nifty.

Hi All - 3 months plus and I am just thrilled with the results. Who knows why there is such variation both in the amount of pain people experience and in the results. So Artemis - I would highly recommend driving South and going to the California Skin Institute. I was really impressed with them. Also someone emailed me to ask for pictures. I don't have any but the next time I go in, I'll see if they will give me my before shots.

That's great, that seems like it would be a tough part of your face to tighten.  Thanks for the update!

Really thought well of the California Skin Institute. Explained everything to me and made sure expectations were realistic.
