5 out of 5 stars Liquid Facelift

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

I had always been nervous about fillers. I never wanted to look like I had had "work done", and was a devotee only to Botox. That was until I met Dr. Chiu. She is an ARTIST (and a Stanford graduate - so wow). We started with my under-eyes, and when I went back to work everyone mentioned how great I looked but couldn't figure out what I had changed (they asked if I dyed my hair, etc). From then...

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!!

5 out of 5 stars Vanquish

49 Yrs Old, 3 Kids, Muffin Top - Redondo Beach, CA

I exercise about 2-3 times per week, but no matter how hard I tried, I could not get rid of the extra fat around my waist. I had 4 vanquish treatments at Dr. Annie Chiu's office. Wow, the treatment series definitely worked for me. I have noticed a huge difference around my waist; my muffin top is significantly reduced and my stomach is flat again. My body fat decreased from 22% to 18%.

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...
