Consultation only: Glad I Had Nothing Done! - Paramus, NJ

Wow, I went to see him about a laser procedure that went wrong with another doctor to get his advice (since he has the same laser in his office) and he took one look at me and said I can't help you. I am so glad that I didn't have anything done! I just saw him on GMA-he was sued by a woman... READ MORE

Dry, Rough Skin Around Eyes After Hetter Peel - New Jersey

Hi, A little over 3 weeks ago, I had a Hetter peel done around my eyes. I now have very rough dry skin (extremely tiny, tiny bumps) on the top and underneath of my eyes and I am so afraid it won't heal. Has anyone else suffered from this. If so, what did you use to help correct this? I used... READ MORE

Questions from k2014

Pearl Fractional done 4 years ago. Why have I got pinmarks and lines around mouth, upper lip/chin area?

Not too many people want to put their pictures on the internet because it's depressing to look at them if you have been damaged by a laser. If chemical peels are helping, please tell me how often and what kind you are having? Sorry,... READ COMMENT

Sorry to hear that. Most people not only have fat loss due to laser damage but also have holes all over their face and lines. What is a cheek tuck? READ COMMENT

Be careful of steroids. If used for a long time, they will thin the skin. Also, it is true that fluorescent lights do emit UVA rays. The twisted and circular ones are worse than the straight shaped lights. READ COMMENT

Thank you Wendy. Still dealing with roughness and redness. I will check out the Obagi. READ COMMENT
