5 out of 5 stars Voluma

Painless - Sacramento, CA

I've wanted to get Voluma before it was even approved by the FDA. Got it done today. They inject deep on the bone- but there was no pain?! Botox hurts more and it hardly hurts. There's a little swelling so I don't know the end result. But I definitely have more cheekbone. I'll keep you updated- but I think i'll like it. No pain, no bruising. A little tender for a few days. It has given my...

5 out of 5 stars Ultherapy

Ultherapy and my Excellent Results - Sacramento, CA

I am 51 years old female, I had a brow lift 4 years ago and I loved the results, I wanted to "freshen it up", I have done Thermage several times, however that procedure did not come close to the results I got with ULTHERAPY.I had brow, lower face and jaw line (under the jaw), my husband looked at me 2.5 months post and said "wow your eyes really stand out", the results on my brow and face were...

3 out of 5 stars Fraxel Repair

Vbeam with Fraxel - Sacramento, CA

I did fraxal with the infamous doctor kilmer. Shes my dermatologist but i actually had a nurse do the procedure. It was very painful. The nurse said it was on a very high setting. I did forehead, nose, cheeks. I also did v beam around my nose. I think the key with stuff like this since i have tattoos is how you take care of it after they are done doing procedure on you. If you dont' take...

47 Year Old with Sagging Thighs - Sacramento, CA

I was really looking for a non-surgical way to treat my sagging thighs so I gave Venus Freeze a try. The procedure was performed on my upper thighs. I think it helped a tiny bit, but it wasn't worth the money I spent. Still looking for a solution so I can actually wear a bathing suit without shorts.

2 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

Disappointed in my results but not sure what the source was.

I was drawn to this surgeon based on reviews and that she had been featured in New Body magazine. I had a consult with a nurse who said I was not tight enough for liposuction for my saddlebags. I'm 5'3 maybe 110 lbs. I was suggested to get coolsculpting. Unfortunately, you don't get to see Dr. Kilmer for this procedure. I paid for 6 treatments at ~$5,000 and it's done in the space next door to...

3 out of 5 stars ThermiVa

Thermiva for Vaginal Atrophy and Painful Sex, 52 Year Old - Sacramento, CA

Menopause hit hard and fast. I was thrust into menopause practically overnight 4 years ago when I had to take tamoxifen for breast cancer (which I stopped taking a year later due to bad side effects). It was truly a terrible experience, but that is for another post. I am 52 years old, and for the last 3 years, intercourse has been becoming more and more painful, to the point that I avoid...
