Lasers are used in cosmetic procedures for everything from skin resurfacing to teeth whitening to liposuction to vision correction.  All lasers are either ablative or non-ablative. Ablative lasers remove the top layer of your skin, and treatments typically require some recovery time while skin heals. Non-ablative lasers are less invasive, and use heat to stimulate cells to thicken the underlying collagen resulting in improved skin tone and elasticity.

Run, do not walk, away from Bassin Plastic Surgery. Saw his appearance on "The Doctors" and went for the lazer lift. He assured me I was the perfect candidate and I did not need a mini lift. There was absolutely no improvement after the procedure. Even Dr. Bassin agreed there was no change... READ MORE

Dr. Adam Scheiner's laser festoon surgery/resurfacing is very intense and risky procedure. If you are considering this procedure then just be prepared to experience constant inflammation, redness, sensitivity, permanent hyperpigmentation and scarring. It is now 8 months post surgery, I haven't... READ MORE

I had the LANAP done for my right upper molars with Dr. Gallardo. I had been referred to him by a pediatric dentist friend a while back but it wasn’t until I needed the surgery that I went to use his services. He was extremely nice, informed, and had great bedside manner. The staff was very p... READ MORE

Dr. Richard Castallano is a giant in our medical community in facial plastic surgery. He is where the regional doctors go when they want to look and feel better about themselves. He does not advertise much so you will not see him on billboards next to a beautiful 20 year old which I think is... READ MORE

My general dentist Dr. Cruz, recommended Dr. Gallardo to me for LANAP. Anyone that Dr. Cruz recommends is going to be the best of the best because she is the best of the best. His website and I guess testimonials about the procedure were really good too so I felt pretty comfortable coming here.... READ MORE

I first came to Dr. Gallardo about 10 years ago for three implants. The experience was excellent so I came back in January for the LANAP laser surgery. Dr. Gallardo is a very good dentist. He’s very careful of making sure you’re comfortable and that you feel good. I really think he makes a poi... READ MORE

So I have been looking into laser resurfacing/ laser peel over the past couple years. I finally decided that in 2014, I will be doing a laser procedure and what better way to start the year! I had been researching a doctor and since I do have a budget, needed to find a Dr. that not only was... READ MORE

Dr. Zimm performed facial surgery on me this past summer. I am very happy with the results. No pain at all during the procedure and absolutely no scar on my face. It was near my eye so I was quite worried but he was an amazing, skilled doctor and was very patient with me. Dr. Zimm did before... READ MORE

I visited Dr. Rankin who diagnosed me with trigger finger. He said I needed a surgery and that he has close to 100% success with it. He performed two surgeries that have made my problem worse and I am in constant pain. I was clearly misdiagnosed. Why did he claim to know hand surgery? He... READ MORE

I came to see Dr. Friedman for a vein that was under my eye. It had bothered me my whole life and I was always being asked if I had a black eye. He used a laser and it's completely gone! Didn't leave a scar or anything. Very nice, patient, highly skilled, easy to talk to. Great office. Highly... READ MORE

It’s been six months since my LazerLift and NaturalFill surgeries, and I look fabulous if I do say so myself. Lol. Recently divorced with three grown kids, it’s time for some me time! Hello Vegas! My flight leaves in three weeks and I can't wait to show of the new me. I even started getting car... READ MORE


I heard about this laser from friends who could not stop talking about it. Unfortunately I could not find a practitioner in my area that had it. Then I found Dr Saluja in Huntersville NC. After meeting with her and receiving a facial treatment, I am sold. The Revlite (medlite) is the best skin... READ MORE

I had this procedure to remove unsightly veins from the nose and reduce swelling in the area. I would recommend Dr Dickerson to anyone needing this type of procedure. READ MORE

It’s been a month since I had a Forehead Lift and laser work on my face and I feel fantastic. I love the way that my skin looks and how the wrinkles were removed, which was my primary concern. I was very impressed with Dr. Holcomb’s qualifications and his education, as well as his assistants and... READ MORE

I wanted post that I had a similar laser procedure as that described on this site. I found the office staff and doctor quite nice and, when I was told to expect 4-7 days of down time, it was for sure. i was bruised and swollen, but from all of my research this is normal. Other people act... READ MORE
