5 out of 5 stars Sculptra

Sculptra Still Going Strong - Love It - Los Angeles

I had Sculptra injected in 2009. Since 2009 I have had a few touch ups - nothing since May 2010 and the results are phenomenal. Most of the volume was placed in my temple area. When I see the before and after pics I am amazed at how natural and subtle the effect is. I just look happier in the after pictures. Great product if you find an experienced doctor with a good eye to inject you. Dr....

From Cynic to Believer - Los Angeles, CA

{edited} {by Britt user asked to fix misspellings} Like most women who are at the crux of baby boomer land where you start to disappear (meaning no one notices you much anymore), I wasn’t ready to give up and get in the rocker. My appearance was always something I sort of relied on and I was losing it! Scary? You bet! At first the changes were almost undetectable, but over several...

Sculptra in Jawline, Cheeks and Temples - Los Angeles, CA

After much research on Sculptra and the long term benefits of using it, I decided to give it a try. I have had several areas treated, including my jawline, cheeks and temples. I could actually see the results immediately! My first treatment was back in December, where I had all of the aforementioned areas treated. I went back yesterday for a follow up and had a little bit more added to my...

IPL Worth It but Depends on Doc - Los Angeles, CA

I see on this site that photofacial and IPL are the same. I had 5 sessions of "photofacial" on my hands about 5 years ago for freckles and spots with NO results. This year I had only ONE treatment of "IPL" on my hands with wonderful results. The freckles and spots are completely gone and I have a nice even tone. The doc stated that it depends on how high the doc makes the setting on the...

It All Depends Upon Who Does the Treatment - Los Angeles, CA

After much research and consideration, I had Sculptra injected yesterday.  So far the results are excellent.  I had anethetic cream applied to my face before the injections.  I really didn't feel pain.  It was more a matter of the eerie feeling of having needles stuck into your face and the sound they make.  More nerves than pain.  Also, the actual injections...

Love It - Larchmont Village, CA

My face looks rested and has a glow to it. I look much younger. I did it to get rid of the dark circles under my eyes and lift my eyebrows.

5 out of 5 stars Ultherapy

So Far So Good - Los Angeles, CA

I am a 49 year old man who is holding up pretty well. Very active, work out, eat right, bla, bla, bla. But my face was starting to slide and sag a bit. Ulthera appeared to be just the all in one solution I could handle. I tried fillers and botox. Having to return every few months for more painful shots was not working for me. (Let me mention that I bruised terribly from restylane) I was a bit...

Sculptra - It's All About the Doctor Who Does It - Larchmont Village, CA

Cons - none really, except some swelling that takes a good 5 or so days to go down. No one noticed until I pointed it out, but I was aware of it and wouldn't do it less than a week before I had to do anything special. Pros - it's so subtle no one notices except you. It also last much longer than the other fillers, and I prefer the idea of a filler that stimulates my skin to...

Master Sculptra! - Los Angeles, CA

Uneven face, more pronounced sagging in the right side of the face. Volume loss overall, tired, aged look Hi everyone!! It's been more then a year since my second Sculptra treatment and my face still looks great! Its volume has been restored and I feel tighter around the chin neck area where the sagging had started to show. When time comes I am sure I will repeat the treatment which I pefer...

A True Artist for Your Face! - Los Angeles, CA

I wanted to get back my youthful face after my husband died and the grief and stress added years to my face. My main goal was to look like myself, only fresher and younger. Sculptra is unbelievable for turning back the clock. I can't even begin to describe how great the results were! Anyone considering this should make sure they get a doctor who has done lots of sculptra injections. I...

Personal Statement

Being a doctor with a cosmetic focus means I have countless opportunities to impact people on the most personal of levels - their self esteem. I'm fortunate to have an eye for what needs balance and I'm pretty much of a perfectionist, so those traits match my patients' goals "perfectly".
