Incredible Doctor - Scottsdale, AZ

I had upper bleph and also lower transconjuctival bleph done. It has only been 16 days post op and I am very happy. My eyes look more alive and open. I have more swelling time ahead of me but everyday gets a little better. The day after was the hardest, my eyes were almost swollen shut and... READ MORE

Worth it, take your time finding a caring experienced doctor

I got my augmentation in '01. I was really young and didn't research doctors, I just rushed into it. Was a small B, was 5'4", 130 lbs. I got 420cc's saline overs per my Dr's advice. Breasts were not symmetrical and was having some dull pains by incision on right side... READ MORE

Works Great, Quicker Than Botox - Scottsdale, AZ

I have used botox regularly between my eyebrows and sometimes in my upper forehead and tried the Dysport because of a great $50 rebate offer. Had 50 units at $2.50/unit (63 after rebate and special members 10% discount)(about the equivalant of 20 units of Botox I think) and I noticed that it... READ MORE

Smooth Results but Doesn't Last As Long As Advertised, more bruising and swelling - Scottsdale, AZ

The juvederm ultra plus is slightly better than the regular juvederm. It always gives smooth results but you swell a lot for a week then it goes down a LOT. Disappointing if it's your lips that go away so fast. I work out a lot so I process fillers rather quickly. Perlane lasts longer for me... READ MORE

Thicker and Lasts Longer Than Juvederm Ultra Plus - Scottsdale, AZ

I love my fillers! I alternate between perlane and juvederm in my lips bc for me the perlane last longer and seems thicker but this can result in a little more of a bumpy feel. So thats why I use juvederm sometimes too, it's smoother but doesn't last as long and you get less per syringe... READ MORE

Great to Use with Eyelash Extensions - Scottsdale, AZ

Latisse is great- you have to use it every night for a good month and a half to see results. The brushes that come with it are too thick though and suck up a lot of product so many find it helpful to use a thin makeup brush of some kind or you can thin out the ones provided by cutting some of...

Bigger is Better - Scottsdale, AZ

Had 450cc saline over the muscle done ten years ago. They were too small and too far apart after so many years and a significant amount of weight loss. Had very apparent rippling visible and implants still soft. Was told I had some scar tissue removed. Replaced (over the muscle still)with... READ MORE

Worth the Wait-Takes Longer to Go into Effect than Dysport - Scottsdale, AZ

When I was a kid, I thought it was fun to be able to move my eyebrows separately because of my brow muscles. Then in my late 20's, the "11's" appeared. Not so fun. I'm talking about the wrinkles in between your brows you make when you get mad - and botox is awesome to... READ MORE

Love It - Scottsdale, AZ

Never had a tattoo before but since I've had injections in my face and breast augmentations I figured I could handle the pain. It wasn't bad, just the first pass feels like a ragged razor blade and it is more painful on the outer areas where your skin is thinner. Dave the tattoo... READ MORE

No Down Time or Annoyance of Peeling.....results..? - Scottsdale, AZ

1064 Yag laser used-I have had a hormonally tumultuous year and my skin has suffered like never before. I have never had acne issues until almost literally when I turned 30:( I have tried everything and the only thing that gets rid of my existing acne is Clearasil spot treatment (10% benzoyl...

I Know It Won't Last Forever..but How Long Does It REALLY Last? - Scottsdale, AZ

I have been using Juvederm and Perlane for various areas for the past few years. I heard the Radiesse lasts much longer (supposedly a year?) bc it is a different kind of filler so I am wanting to try in in a few spots - nasolabial area, upper cheek bones, and possibly in an area of my chin that...

One is Helpful but Getting Them Monthly is More Beneficial - Scottsdale, AZ

I try to get a peel when I have pms my acne wants to flare up. It does help but I hate the sloughing off period that starts 4 or 5 days after. The peel leave you shiny looking the first day and you try to leave it on at least 6 hrs before washing your face. Water will kind of re-activate it so... READ MORE

Cheek Hollows by Undereye Area - Scottsdale, AZ

I am a veteran with Juvederm and Perlane fillers and wanted to try something to help soften my tear trough /under eye area. Belotero is still making it's way through Scottsdale medical offices so I decided to try Restylane in the mean time. I had some Juvederm put in the tear trough area a few... READ MORE

Clear & Brilliant Laser - Scottsdale, AZ

Clear & Brilliant Laser –The treatment. I was excited to try this bc there is supposed to be little or no down time and no sloughing like the peels I have gotten. It’s made by the company that does Fraxel and is a lower set wavelength. It should help with acne, pore size, more of a... READ MORE

Yes what is listed was for both, my doctor was just opening up his own practice at that time so it was kind of a special rate. I don't have thin lips but like having the extra plumping in borders and lower "pillow areas". I actually... READ COMMENT

Thank you:) I started small like most with just a little botox and graduated to the fillers. It's amazing how much the filler helps my nose and profile, it's a great way to make an improvement without having to have a rhinoplasty which... READ COMMENT

Thanks:) sorry I have been MIA, I am sporadically busy which can be inconvenient for the sites that I love and try to keep up with like realself.com:) READ COMMENT

Thank you:) I am 5'4" about 115 lbs. I was a small B cup when I was 21 which seems like centuries ago lol. You sound like you have a little more of a slender build than I do. When you are petite and have a narrow ribcage like I do can... READ COMMENT

I get botox in my jaw muscles and it gets rid of my clenching and teeth grinding, works great but it's a tricky injection so have a facial specialist do it. READ COMMENT
