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

Not Worth It at All

I decided to have a Vi peel to address hormonal acne, minor acne scarring and anti-aging in general. I've had glycolic peels and other procedures and wasn't really worried that I would have a bad outcome, especially given all of the glowing reviews of this peel. Boy was I wrong. It was a...

Questions from Chasethedream

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 would usually never say this, but it's obviously that the changes are from Latisse and you should pursue legal action. It looks like it's improving though once you stopped at least. READ COMMENT

It took 3 months for it to work and now I have ZERO breakouts. Hang in there! I also had 3 full courses of Accutane several years before spiro and still got breakouts. I was increased to 150 mg per day of spiro and it seemed to help at... READ COMMENT

People are only trying to be helpful about stating the risks of this product, including periorbital fat loss. I find it more helpful to hear real life experiences versus opinions from doctors or drug companies that have financial... READ COMMENT

I think your results look great, but like someone else said the periorbital fat loss is concerning with this product. I can see a difference already with your after photos :( I stopped using it due to this. My eyes started always... READ COMMENT

Your results look great! Juvederm has worked for me as well. Ematrix was really good too!! Probably the best treatment I've had with the best results was Juvederm and Ematrix. I agree that most lasers and peels do NOTHING and are a... READ COMMENT
