5 out of 5 stars Dysport

Great Place. Sacramento, CA

I just went today for a consultation.Doctor Tanghetti took his time to explain everything and suggest what it was best for me. He answered all my questions and you can see he is not trying to sell you some procedure you may not need. You can tell he wants the best for you. I have a Dysport treatment first time ever. I was very scare of the needle. However, I did not feel anything. He did a...

Tattoo Removal Success - Sacramento, CA

I can't say enough great things about my experience with Dr. Tangetti and his staff. After thinking I'd be stuck with a adolescent mistake for the rest of my life, I was pleasantly surprised to see almost immediate results and a few tattoo removal after 5 treatments. If you were like me, and wanted a bad tattoo removed, this is the place to go! Thanks

3 out of 5 stars Acne Treatment

21 Years Old - Sacramento, CA

I've been a long time patient to this place and now that they don't except out of pocket payments they kick their patients to the curve. I felt alone and angry at this place. A place I thought I could trust. I've been struggling with acne for years now and I get so down about it. To have to go to a completely different place now upsets me. I did not get a good enough explanation from them.

Starting the Process of Tattoo Removal with Picosure - Sacramento, CA

When I was 19 I decided rather impulsively that what was missing from my life was a tattoo. I distinctly remember several people trying to talk me out of it, or to at least think it through a little longer, but if anything the discouragement from others seemed to push me along even faster. Before I knew it, I had a good-sized band of a rose on my right upper arm. I regretted the tattoo...

Tattoo Removal - Sacramento, CA

November 13th was my first treatment with a new laser machine at Dr. Tanghetti's office. The new laser treatment brought almost immediate results; far better than other machines. Additionally, the results were dramatically better while the recovery time was much shorter. I am absolutely thrilled with the new laser machine and I can't wait to receive my next treatment. I am looking forward to...

5 out of 5 stars Voluma

Voluma Lift - Sacramento, CA

I had Voluma added to my cheek bone area. This really works by adding volume to the cheek bone area it created a lift that makes me look younger without being obvious. Dr Tanghetti and Kathy evaluated my face and discussed my concerns. They then recommended about 2 syringes of Voluma in each side for optimal results. They told me that after 2 weeks any swelling or bruising would diminish and...

I will share more of my motivation later. I relate to some of the difficult stages of...
