Didn't Work for Me, with Side Effects - Orange County, CA

I had cosmelan done at my dermatologist's recommendation for some minor pigmentation about 8 years ago. Her nurse whispered to me before I left to leave it on longer for a better result. Well, I did, and I turned red and peeled like crazy for about a week (which I think is normal). This... READ MORE

I had Voluma injected in my cheeks 3 days ago. The nurse also added some to one nasolabial fold next to my nose that was deeper than the other. The cheeks are fine but the NL... READ MORE

From my experience of two surgeries, the nose tip almost always drops a bit during the healing process....I wish mine had stayed more upturned. I hope you are doing ok, I know how it is to stress about how it's all going to turn out... READ COMMENT

Hi Britt, My skin is much much better now, thanks. I got the melasma pigmentation from taking progesterone for PMS, and at this point it is pretty much gone. I guess I'm one of those people who can't take hormones without getting... READ COMMENT

I've had lots of moles removed by this method. I had really red scars that lasted a few months and then faded to slightly lighter than skin color - not very noticable at all now, but I didn't enjoy the healing phase. Having a... READ COMMENT
