20% At-home TCA Peel Combined with Jessner's - No Noticeable Difference - California

I did my TCA peels myself at home to try to reduce some fine lines, get rid of some brown spots on my cheeks, and even out my skin tone and texture. I used glycolic peels and other AHA products prior, so that is probably why I didn't experience any adverse effects to the TCA. I first apply a... READ MORE

Cosmelan Didn't Work for Me - California

I bought cosmelan from ebay. They claimed it was the old formula and I guess it really was because I peeled A LOT! I heard that with the new cosmelan, you don't really peel. I got cosmelan because I have brown spots on my cheeks that I got from using Proactiv and not wearing sunscreen.... READ MORE

Laser Treatment for Melasma Didn't Work - Downey, CA

I had laser treatment for melasma. I am really not sure what the laser was called, but the doctor said it was to treat melasma. I have brown spots on my cheeks from not wearing sunscreen. I'm a medium skin tone in between type 3 and 4. Getting the laser treatment was not painful at all. It... READ MORE

Microdermabrasian Not For Me - Pasadena, CA

One day when I was online, I saw an ad for American Laser Center and entered to win free laser hair removal. Later they called, and apparently I won but I would have to pay a little extra because whatever I won wouldn't cover the entire treatments needed. I went down to the place, and then... READ MORE

Renova Gives Subtle Results - California

I use Renova 0.05% and sometimes Tazorac 0.05%. I have Retin-A 0.1% as well, but haven't started using it yet. I was really scared to start using Renova because I heard it can make your skin dry and really red and peely. However, when I started using Renova, my skin didn't get ugly or... READ MORE

Tattoo Removal Is a Long Process - Beverly Hills, CA

I've been getting a tattoo on my ankle removed for over two years now. I've had 15 treatments and it still isn't totally gone. However, it has faded quite a bit. It only had black ink, so it should have been relatively easy to remove, but it has taken a lot longer than I expected.... READ MORE

Orbital Fat Grafting and Eyelid Surgery - Oxnard, CA

I had orbital fat grafting and skin removal on one eye yesterday. I had hollow eyes, but one didn't look hollow because it had a lot of skin covering it. So far, I have no bleeding or bruising. My eyes are just very swollen and I can't fully close one eye. Maybe that eye is more swollen... READ MORE

Caused Orbital Fat Loss - NOT WORTH IT! - California, CA

I started using the generic version of Latisse on June 15, 2010. Shortly after, I experienced very rapid hollowing of my eyes, both upper and lower. It did make my eyelashes longer, but they were already long to begin with. It was so not worth it, I should never have tried! The problem is,... READ MORE

That's not long at all, it's good that you caught it early. I'm glad your eyes are going back to normal already! Yea, you don't even need to see the product on the brush. I thought I needed to feel it on my lashline or it wasn't enough... READ COMMENT

I do look pretty much the same as in old photos. I applied it everyday for however long the instructions say...I think it was 3 months. Then I applied it once a week but every once in a while, if my eyelashes were longer on one side, I... READ COMMENT

It has been almost a year since I used careprost and I haven't seen the fat grow back. I heard it can take 15 months so I guess there's still a chance it can grow back but I have a feeling it probably won't. I'm sorry that it happened... READ COMMENT

Try Dr. Norman Shorr in Beverly Hills. He does pearl fat grafting too. I'm thinking of going to him for my lower eyelid fat grafting! READ COMMENT

Have you seen any improvement in your dark circles yet? I read that some Latisse side effects take 15 months to reverse but they usually seem to be reversible. READ COMMENT
