5 out of 5 stars Dysport

It's Apparent She Loves Her Job - Encinitas, CA

I went to Dr. P for Dysport. She performs great procedures that yield excellent outcomes - I was extremely happy with my results. She is friendly and warm...not to mention beautiful. She has an excellent bedside manner - she gives explanation/education at every step of the service she is providing. She definitely made me feel comfortable and completely at ease.

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Outstanding Doc--very Thorough and Kind - Encinitas, CA

Really kind. Surprised how thorough her skin exam is! She even checked in my mouth. She was really knowledgeable and answered several questions I had. Seems like one stop shopping--I read her bio and she does tons of cosmetic stuff in addition to general derm. I was so impressed I decided to do Botox a couple of months later. She's got a gentle hand.

5 out of 5 stars Sculptra

Best Dermatologist in San Diego - Solana Beach, CA

I had taken the time to consult with several Dermatologist and Plastic Surgeons in the San Diego & OC areas regarding Sculptra and fillers. I felt most women looked over "filled" and felt Sculptra may be the more natural approach, however after reading many reviews , I realized Sculptra is not a "filler" and needed to be injected by a VERY experienced doc. After meeting Dr.Palm, my 3rd...

5 out of 5 stars Cellfina

45yo with Cellulite Since my Late 20's - Solana Beach, CA

Dr. Palm is a fabulous doctor. She just makes you feel so much at ease when she talks to you. She doesn't try push you into any procedures that you don't want or need. I have complete confidence in her knowledge and her abilities. I know she just wants you to look and feel good about yourself. And she will do what she can to get you there. I'm still not sure about the Cellfina procedure...

Cellfina for Cellulite on Thighs and Butt (38 Yrs Old) - Solana Beach, CA

I'm usually a pretty private person, but I've found the reviews on here to be so incredibly helpful that I thought I would return the favor. I'm 38 years old. I eat very healthy... in fact, I was a holistic nutrition coach for over 15 years. I've been working out with a personal trainer doing weights for almost 6 months now. And although I am definitely more toned and I know I've dropped at...

5 out of 5 stars Infini RF

"34 Year Old, Hispanic with Moderate Acne Scaring. San Diego, CA

Dr. Melanie Palm is awesome, I was very pleased with the procedure.

3 out of 5 stars Ultherapy

Ultherapy - Solana Beach, CA

Dr. Palm is a sweetheart but very expensive and my results are depressing.

5 out of 5 stars Radiesse

Amazing Artist! - Solana Beach, CA

Dr. Melanie Palm is an amazing artist as much as a doctor. Don't think I'll ever need face surgery with what she can accomplish with fillers and Botox. I work all over Southern California and can see doctors from Malibu to Tijuana so always looking for who is top notch. Dr. Palm explains all the options clearly and seems to really know her stuff. Helpful office staff too. In my book, Dr. Palm is the best!

5 out of 5 stars Restylane Silk

The Best Lip Filler - Restalyne Silk!! - Solana Beach, CA

Dr. Palm is incredibly skilled in the latest state-of-the-art procedures, products and equipment. No doctor has ever before injected my lips without bruising, but she did! She is brilliant at the art of cosmetic dermatology, is honest and realistic, cares about her patients and takes every step to accomplish beautiful results without unnecessary discomfort. Several of my friends referred me to Dr. Palm, and I can't stop thanking them! We all consider ourselves very lucky to be her patients! Her office is efficient, organized, beautiful and staffed by wonderful women. Truly, I have never been to a doctor's office that even comes close.

Resurfx Treatment - Solana Beach, CA

This was my 5th or 6th visit to Dr. Palm and team, and again, it was great. The procedure went smoothly as usual, and everyone here is nice, down to earth, and knowledgable. They seem to really like what they do. I really trust this team, as they have not steered me wrong. I also appreciate that they are mindful of my budget, and never try to push anything on me, and are great about allowing me to stretch out my visits to fit my budget. The Freshen Up Friday deals are also a great way to save money on the most popular treatments.
