Testing out Generic Retin-A from US Vs Overseas Tretinoin - Charlottesville, VA

Okay -- so I convinced my friend to use ourselves as human guinea pigs and try this tretinoin .1 percent I got from an online pharmacy for like six bucks (yeah, yeah, I know all the docs say not to trust overseas pharmacies but I can't stand the three hundred dollar price tag for the stuff here,...

Sculptra -- Nothing Bad Happened but It's a WASTE of Money! - Salem, VA

Okay....I will not put pics up but if people want to email I can get the pics from my doctor so you can see what's up. My motivation was to get more fat back into my too skinny, already drooping face. It makes me sad to see pics of myself and I want to stop feeling depressed about that! It's... READ MORE

Questions from nadiahoney

How Can Some Places Charge Up to a Thousand Less for Ulthera Than Others? Is There a Diff

I have seen ulthera for so much more (4000) in VA than in FLA or even Beverly Hills -- it costs like 2500 there -- all for the same thing!! How can this be? Please explain. I... READ MORE

I Would Like to Fix a Droopy, Too Bulbous Nose Tip Ten Years After the Original Nose Job; What Would You Suggest?

I had a nose job ten years ago as a present. Well I should have researched better because it's not great, not horrible -- but it's been getting droopier and bigger at... READ MORE

Is It Ok to Get Ulthera Two or Three Days After Getting Botox?

I am getting ulthera done by a so-so residential nurse on Monday, and botox on Fri. Have had botox before. Is this ok -- I mean, will it make the botox go away faster? READ MORE

Ultherapy Should Not Hurt, Right?

I read that ulthera should not be painful (as it was for me) if the doctor is aware of where facial nerves and bones are, and performs the procedure correctly. Why did mine... READ MORE

How Far Away Are We from an Anti-aging Pill/injection -- or Has It Already Been Invented for the Privileged Few?

I remember the telomere research that won a Nobel prize (which also has use for many diseases.) I also recall reading about something derived from astralagus root (but... READ MORE

Why Do Toothpastes Claim to Regrow Enamel?

Is it illegal (or false business claim/fraud) for all the toothpastes I see to claim that they can REGROW enamel? Isn't this impossible, so far -- although I know they have... READ MORE

Can Artefill Be Used over a Sculptra-filled Area?

Can artefill be used over an area that has been treated with sculptra in the past? Also, what is the difference between artefill and sculptra? Does the stuff in these things... READ MORE

Why Do Docs Say to Only Do TCA at a Doctor's Office Since It's So Easy to Follow Directions?

When you get a 90 dollar peel a derm's office, they peel your skin by painting on a solution then send you home with specific instructions about how to care for your skin. How... READ MORE

Now That They Have Had the Benefits of Experience Behind Them, Does Ultherapy

I had ultherapy several years back when it first came out. I definitely was far from impressed esp. considering the cost (as were many people I have noticed.) But I have been... READ MORE

When fillers are done for a while, do decent doctors take into account underlying tissue and muscle?

I have done fillers with good surgeons and find that they can veer dangerously close to Madonna-fake looking over time. EVEN the ones that supposedly add collagen can do this.... READ MORE

Why aren't there anything dentists use to paint over/protect teeth yet?

We wear shoes on our feet, sunscreen on skin -- why isn't there anything out there yet that protects teeth or regrows enamel from the elements? Is it really that difficult to... READ MORE

Can a numbing shot from a dentist in the mouth area do something awful to the Radiesse I got the day before? Will it move?

I LOVED my radiesse. I was very very happy with my broader cheeks. Not only did she get it EXACTLY how I would want it, there was NO bruising. The next day I went to the... READ MORE

What is the science behind the "Liquid Cone technology" that Rodan and Fields patented for their new Acute Care line?

I have looked all over the web for an explanation but all I find is marketers. I just want to understand the "robotic" technology that drives the ingredients into the skin and... READ MORE

Does growth hormone really work for anti-aging? Do doctors prescribe this for themselves and for patients? Would they?

I have read that Suzanne Somers and Madonna use growth hormone and that some doctors self-inject. I know how it works, just curious to know how many doctors on here would use... READ MORE

Doc said I am not ready for eye lift, that laser is best option. Which laser works best to improve slightly sagging skin?

I have so far seen two plastic surgeons. One offers dot matrix laser for my undereyes (and full face), the other says erbium works just as well as CO 2 laser resurfacing. She... READ MORE

Do some areas of the country simply have fewer decent doctors?

For a real surgery I don't want to go more than three hours away. To be honest, I consider Virginia a "less intelligent" state. I have lived in areas like Strasbourg, France,... READ MORE

Why does it seem like doctors want to make everyone look the same, like some "uncanny valley" replica?

I have started to see something alarming on television and elsewhere. It seems that doctors were given a "how to create a good looking woman" manual so much of the time. I am... READ MORE

Hey, pretty sure she did not do her nose -- from what i can remember. It's just a good nose! Yes I have to agree this is way too young to touch an already pretty face, but it's hard to ignore all the ridiculous emphasis on JUST... READ COMMENT

Linaleigh have you found an issue with movement at all>? I read that people have problems moving. I have a pretty dynamic face, I don't see how it could allow the implants to go along with it or vice versa. I think the liplift looks... READ COMMENT

By the way the RN I visit to do my botox and juvederm is certified and has never made a mistake on me, and there is always a doctor in the office when she does her work. I consider her talented and trustworthy, and in fact she has... READ COMMENT

After seeing this done and talking to the person who injects it (an Rn who I trust with my botox) I can emphatically reiterate what others have said, this is ABOSLUTELY the fault of the idiot I mean doc who injected you. There is... READ COMMENT

Yes this makes sense -- I assume the better docs watch how you animate face and so forth. It really seems like common sense to think about long term and how it will look over time! But apparently, some fill up the face (with... READ COMMENT
