My First Experience - Montgomery, AL

This is very long, but I wanted to share my experience as intimately as possible: I had a non-ablative procedure done over a year ago (at a medical spa and NOT done by a dermatologist). It looked great - for about 3 days, then the swelling went down and I looked worse! I was very... READ MORE

Laser Peel Followed by Profactional for Acne Scars - Arlington Heights, IL

Looking at all these reviews, I am glad I didn't come to this site before I had this procedure done or else I probably wouldn't have got it done. Anyways I'll start with the outcome: scars are much less noticeable, which is what I wanted. I went into the office looking to get eMatrix done, but... READ MORE

I found a cosmetic... READ MORE

Be Prepared for Recovery After Treatment - Maple Grove, MN

My background: I am 37 years old, however a lot of people commented that I don't look my age. Some people thought that I was around 30 years old. I attribute it to the fact that I never used tanning beds, never smoked and I started using anti-aging creams since I was 25 (the first time I was... READ MORE
