8 IPL treatments over 3 years, an excellent procedure for sun damaged fair skin

Pros: good for clearing sun pigmentation on light skin people. Can be performed by well trained non-medical staff (so no extra fees). No down time (skin looks a bit dirty for a week but not really noticeable). Tends to even out skin texture as a side benefit. Safe and relatively painless. Cons:... READ MORE

Face ultrasound treatment still good in some areas after 1.5 years, other areas no benefit - Sydney, AU

I've only just had Ulthera, so it will be 2-3 months before I can put up before and after pics, but I'd like to note my impressions of the treatment. Why I had it: I've disliked the lax look of my neck and jaw line for the past 5 years but am not ready for surgery. I wanted something I... READ MORE

Why I had it done: I started to get visible, 3D bags at around 25. I hated it. People always said I looked tired.

I thought that it would require a neck lift by Dr Nair said that it was a fat issue, and that lipo would be very effective, the skin would snap right back. After... READ MORE

I'd expect, given that the tatt is almost black, they should be able to completely fry that sucker. Not sure why they're taking it in such small bites. The doctor says the skin isn't supposed to blister, but everyone knows that a... READ COMMENT

I'm amazed at how differently people seem to react to this proc. I didn't have hardly any reaction, except the bony parts of the face where it's god-awful. I wish there were more objective studies as to how effective it is. I feel... READ COMMENT

Katie, I'm not interested or obliged to answer a flood of loaded questions that begin "How can you.." and "How do you". I explained my reasons sufficiently, have established my own opinions and have nothing more to say on this matter. ... READ COMMENT

I'd be going to a different doctor! READ COMMENT

There seems to be some confusion. I investigated the clinic before I went there, that's what I mean by the case. There's nothing to "downplay". I told them I was concerned because I read some unfavourable reviews on the web, which... READ COMMENT
