I'm only 32 but I've lost a lot of weight in the last year and I've always had slightly sunken cheeks - the result being that I look kind of haggard and tired all the time in the eye/cheekbone region.
I'm so, so glad I finally decided to get this done - the results were instant and really natural - it looks just like the face I had maybe 5-10 years ago - my eye/cheekbone area looks perky and plump but in a very youthful, real way - like I just had a great night of sleep. And perking my cheeks up also softened my naso-labial lines because my cheeks are fuller.
I just had it done yesterday. No bruising, no swelling, no bumps, and thanks to numbing cream plus the lidocaine in it, it was barely painful at all.
I really can't think of a con, it's an awesome treatment.

I went to City Skin and Laser in Maiden Lane. I have been there for many treatments and never been less than happy. I usually am treated by Marina, but Rena is also good.

Also, at my place they give you a choice of coming early for numbing cream or just braving it out. If you've never had it done before, come early and get the numbing cream, it's worth the extra 30 minutes.
Gave great advice to help me figure out what treatment was right for me, great results, skillful, gentle technique, little pain, great price - what's not to love? Honestly, the best thing about this place is that you will get really good, unbiased advice about how to get the results you want in the easiest and least expensive way possible. Highly recommended.
