5 out of 5 stars Kybella

So painless and easy...

First let me say....I absolutely love Dr. Railan! I drive all the way from San Jose to see her in Menlo Park. She is a knowledgeable, skilled, and caring doctor. I have had multiple types of treatments in my years as her patient and all my experiences have been unparalleled. Her office is comfortable, beautiful and clean. Her staff, Scott and Jennifer are excellent. I decided to have the...

Warm, human, polished: I look forward to my appointments

I wish I could have captured exactly what I said at Dr. Railan's office today, but it was something to the gist of how extraordinary it is to visit. My dad is a doctor, so I know what a good doctor is like. But there's something about the entire team that is so warm and human and polished at the same time. I look forward to my appointments.

Excellent doctor!

Dr. Railan is first rate. Super professional and a perfectionist. She recomends the best products and treatments, but she's never "sales-y". I am always happy with my results. Her staff are excellent. A+

5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

46 Old Handles

Dr. Railan and her staff were awesome!!! The told me everything in advance of what to expect and there were no surprises. I am someone that likes to know what to expect. I run, bike and lift weights. I couldn't get the love handles to a place where I wanted. This was a great procedure and helped. I had read how painful it was. I didn't have that experience. It was numb for about a...

5 out of 5 stars Ultherapy

Ultherapy and PDT Treatment - Menlo Park, CA

Had a great experience with Dr. Railan during my Ultherapy, Sculptra Aesthetic and PDT Treatment. She was very thorough and aware of any possible discomfort. I did not find either treatment to be uncomfortable. I already see a great difference just after two weeks and feel confident that the Ultherapy will continue to improve the overall look of my face and skin.

5 out of 5 stars Acne Treatment

Adult Acne and All-around Sun-damaged Skin... - Menlo Park, CA

I'm a healthy woman in my early fifties and have dealt with acne my whole life. I also grew up in FL so I have very sun-damaged skin. I've been seeing Dr. Railan since moving to the Bay Area and I love her and her staff. She is patient, professional and doesn't push things on me. She's up on all the latest laser treatments and sells terrific products. Her staff is extremely client-service...

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

Restylane Nasolabial Folds and Lips - Botox for Crows Feet and Between Brows

I chose Restylane not so much for vanity but because I was tired of people telling me I look tired! I am 38 and the nasolabial folds along my nose were really aging me. I just had the injection of 3 tubes and the dermatologist really wanted to use more. (I agree but at $575 each...) Right now, I am very happy with the results. Will see how the Botox turns out in a couple of weeks.

Amazing, compassionate, brilliant, kind and always up on the latest technology and procedures!!!

I love Dr. Railan and her staff - they are an amazing team! I've been going to Dr. Railan for about 9 years and would never consider seeing another dermatologist! I drive about 90 miles each way to see her for my appointments! Her bedside manner cannot be found anywhere else.
