4 out of 5 stars Laser Liposuction

Spare Chins All Gone! I No Longer Cry When I See Photos Of Myself! Calsbad, CA

Even when I was very young and thin, I always had at least one spare chin. People often told me how pretty I was, but I could only see a pig face when I looked at photos. I tried for years to avoid them and I often felt guilty when people in groups would get upset with me for ducking out. When I agreed, the photo taker would always smile and say, "see, you look great" while showing me...

5 out of 5 stars Cellulaze

Had Cellulaze 1 Month Ago - San Diego, CA

The Doctor is very honest and straight forward. Easy to talk to and makes you feel comfortable. His staff is excellent too. I have been going to Dermacare for about 7 years. Getting various lasers and injections and botox. They don't do more fillers or botox than you need. They definitely don't over sell you. And prices are reasonable.

5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser

Love the Results - San Diego, CA

Amazed at the change, it did take 6-8 weeks as it kept improving my tone and texture. Little downtime, 2 days looked the worse after that brown microcrusting was only noticeable to me close up.

A Tough Choice to Be "Out of Commission" for 4+ Days, but if You Have the Time, It is Worth It!

Dr. doesn't suggest any procedure to make money... He'll only tell you what procedure will really help YOU... He is very thorough in explaining all the pros and cons, and post-procedure follow-up. I also like his staff - they are quite pleasant and knowledgeable. They even called me the next day to check on me and to give me even more advice
