5 out of 5 stars CoolMini

Highly recommend CoolSculpt at the Derm Institute

Overall a very positive experience. I had CoolSculpt done on my neck and the attentiveness of Dr Chiu and her staff was second to none. They made sure I was informed about what to expect, that I was comfortable before starting the procedure and made sure to check in on me during the procedure. I could not be happier with my results. I would highly recommend The Derm Institute if you are...

Skin Genius!

Dr Chiu is a skin genius! If you want to years younger without looking fake or 'overdone' then I would recommend Dr Chiu. Very knowledgeable, friendly and understanding, she makes you feel incredible comfortable and at ease. She is an expert injector - I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Subtle Beauty with Dr. Annie Chiu

Dr. Chiu is SOOO sweet. Her bedside manner is amazing, and she is a true artist. She is a perfectionist and is all about natural beauty and aging preventatives. She believes in treating now to prevent needing larger interventions later. She has never told me to do something that wasn't necessary, and I truly credit her with my confidence. By the way - doing botox in my forehead has relieved my tension headaches!

63 Year Old and Referred by a Friend - Redondo Beach, CA

Dr. Chiu gave me choices without pressure and time to decide what would be best for me. Let me know pros and cons of all treatments. I am very happy with the botox treatment (neck and jawline) already taking shape. Subtle but just what I needed. The staff is great and she was well informed, kind, and generous in time and information. Definitely my new go-to doctor!!

Getting Rid of my Gummy Smile with Botox - Redondo Beach, CA

My gummy smile made me extremely insecure about my smile. I have a big mouth and big teeth, so I felt that my gums made my mouth even bigger. I got my first injections about last year with Dr. Annie Chiu, who is extremely sweet and very friendly. She told me she will be conservative with the amount of units to see how I feel and to come back in two weeks if I feel like I need more. I received...
