Tired of my thinning, aging eyelashes I took the plunge and purchased Latisse from my PS on March 20. I did my research, discussed with the patient coordinator and thought if it worked it was well worth the price. This definitely works although I do not notice that my lashes are thicker only...

It's About Me, Not Anyone Else. - Chicago, IL

I, like most, have been thinking for years of getting my face done - it is time now.

I hate having a... READ MORE

Neck lift / Face Lift swelling - where does it go?

This may be odd but most reviews I have read indicate the reason to keep head elevated is so swelling will move downward but isn't that stretching the neck skin causing it to... READ MORE

Moisturizer Post- Facelift /Neck lift doesn't soak in on the swollen skin. Why is that?

I'm one week in from FL and I've noticed that my SkinMedica moisturizer isn't soaking in the skin. This is most evident along the hairline (where sutures are) and the areas... READ MORE

Can crowned teeth be whitened?

I have crowns on front teeth (4) which over the years have stained and darkened. I got the crowns because my teeth were aging and the color was awful. Can anything whiten teeth... READ MORE

Dry, flaky skin post facelift.

I am about 45 days post FL and skin is very dry and flaky, even my ears have slight flaking. What causes this and how can I combat it? I didn't have any resurfacing, laser, etc... READ MORE

How well are the new upper arm applicators working for Coolsculpt?

No amount of exercise will get rid of hanging upper arms (bat wings) and I was wondering what success rate is for doing that part of body. Also does the skin get loose after... READ MORE

I do not know about the partner issue but here are my thoughts. Make an appointment with the doctor and take your husband with to discuss all the concerns he has. 1. Anesthesia: this can also be discussed with PS or possibly your... READ COMMENT

Hi, hope you are doing well. I would think that you should wait until the six month mark before having fillers, you may not need them. Of course, this is a question for your PS. I'm at three month post op and still have face... READ COMMENT

I haven't been around for a while just wanted to tell you how great you're looking. READ COMMENT

Your lashes look great. I used Latisse for several months a few years ago, it made my lashes much longer but not thicker and they were very haphazard looking. I wasn't happy with the way they looked so I stopped. You can even see the... READ COMMENT
