5 out of 5 stars Mini Lift

Eyelids and Mini-facelift Fabulous! - Palo Alto, CA

I am a RN that works in the Operating Room of a Surgical Center. I do not work with Dr. Hessler in any capacity and have not received any stipend for my review. I had my mini-facelift and upper blepharoplasty done in office on a Tuesday. There was minimal discomfort during the procedure and Dr. Hessler frequently checked on how I was feeling. My post-op pain was non-existent. Bruising...

Better Result Than I Expected - Palo Alto, CA

I went to Dr. Hessler for eyelid surgery.The result was better than I expected. I barely had any bruising, very little swelling, you can barely see the incisions, and the recovery time was very fast. (couple days, few Tylenols) I plan on having a facelift in the near future, and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my face!

So Happy I Went Through with It! - Palo Alto, CA

I went to see Dr. Hessler because I feel like I've always had a "mean" look about me and I just wanted to see what a brow lift entailed. That said, I had never had any procedures before so I was really wary of doing something really drastic right away ... and Dr. Hessler was really understanding and helpful. She provided a few options - one was Ultherapy and the other was an upper bleph. I was...

So Happy I Did This - Palo Alto, CA

After debating for years whether or not to have this surgery, I decided to go for it. I wish I had done it years ago! I've always had uneven eyelids, which didn't really bother me until one in particular became more saggy. I'm in my early 30s, and I felt like if it weren't for my saggy eyelids, I'd look much younger. I looked tired all the time, and my eyes and eyelashes didn't "pop" anymore...

5 out of 5 stars Ultherapy

Smooth and Firm - Palo Alto, CA

I have seen D. Hessler for Botox, filler and a variety of skin brighteners, but she suggested the Ultheraphy. It was a simple in office procedure that involved a little relaxer to take the edge off and a wand smoothing out the lines on my face and neck. It was not painful until she went around the temples which the muscles twitched as she went back and forth. The neck and eyes were the...

5 out of 5 stars Acne Scars Treatment

Acne Scar Treatment - Palo Alto, CA

I had some scaring near my temple as a result of some acne about a year ago that didn't seem to go away. We started with a simple cream and after about a month, the scarring was reduced considerably and now it's completely gone! It was something I had been very embarrassed about and was thrilled with the results.
