Nerve Pain After Coolsculpting - Boston, MA

I had Coolsculpting done on my lower abdomen 5/7/2014. I'm a size 4, 135 lbs and I always seem to have a little extra weight in my lower stomach, especially after I had my son 2 years ago. The procedure itself was pretty painless except for when they initially suck the skin into the machine. ... READ MORE

Very Happy So Far! American Laser Skincare - Boston, MA

I've had some acne scars on my right cheek ever since I had very bad acne in my teens. I took 3 full courses of Accutane and my skin gets a few break outs here and there, but has been tremendously improved since I was about 19 and took the first course of Accutane (I'm currently 33). My main... READ MORE

Never Again....... - Boston, MA

I bought a package of ematrix at a medspa and they offered me a complimentary upgrade to their new Palomar 1540 laser due to a customer service issue. (I listed 250 as price as that was price to upgrade from cheeks only to full face). Big mistake. I had good results with ematrix and should have... READ MORE

Questions from MaggieF516

How do you treat facial burn from Glycolic peel? (photos)

I got a Vivite glycolic peel (70%) yesterday. I also use Retin-A sporadically for acne (a few times a week). I had put Retin-A on my face the day before the peel, but I really... READ MORE

I had lip injections (Juvederm) 2 weeks ago and developed cracks/cuts in the corners of my mouth where she inserted the needle for some of the injections. Initially there was... READ MORE

Which treatment is more effective for Acne Scars, Ematrix or Icon 1540? (photo)

I recently purchased an Ematrix package (7 treatments) to help with acne scars. The medspa is now encouraging me to upgrade to their new equipment, an Icon 1540, for a modest... READ MORE

Non surgical nose job after septorhinoplasty? I was wondering if filler could be used to raise the tip slightly? (Photo)

Hi there, I had a septorhinoplasty 15 years ago and was so pleased with the results. It was life changing to be honest. I have noticed recently my tip seems to have dropped a... READ MORE

4th course of Accutane?

I took my first course of Accutane at 19 and it was tremendously improved. Life changing to say the least. It seemed to come back again 3-4 yrs later and I took another full... READ MORE

Hair loss due to spironolactone or IUD?

I started spironolactone about 3 weeks ago for hormonal acne. 2 weeks ago I got a Mirena IUD. I noticed 1 week later my hair started to feel much thinner. My doctor had assured... READ MORE

Hate Radiesse results. Have you seen any trends in patients who had it dissolve quickly? (Photo)

I had Radiesse injected in my cheeks 15 months ago. Admittedly, I didn't do enough research on the dr. The filler has distorted my face when I smile & makes it wider. I feel it... READ MORE

I really think you should reconsider Accutane. I was much like you, very hesitant and unsure. I was terrified of the side effects, which all turned out to be no big deal. Any yeah, acne can be covered up with makeup and I remember doing... READ COMMENT

Your story sounds kind of like mine. I had acne from about 12 that was awful. I took my first course of Accutane at 19 and it changed my life. It's never returned to that level. It did come back a bit and I took a 2nd course 2 years... READ COMMENT

I had a somewhat similar reaction to a Vi peel. My skin seemed dry and wrinkled for a month. When I smile there is almost a crepey look that was not present before. It was a huge waste of money and plan to post on it with pics when I... READ COMMENT

I had it 1.5 years ago in my cheeks. Huge mistake. It is still here 1.5 years later with no signs of dissolving. It didn't even need it in my cheeks really and should have never considered it. It has completely distorted my facial... READ COMMENT

I would give it a try. I've had fractional in the past (I think Fraxel is a fractional non-ablative laser) which did nothing. I do feel the ematrix helped a lot. I still have some scars, but definitely more shallow. I tried a Vi peel... READ COMMENT
