5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

25, 5'5", 165 Lbs, Work out 4x/week, No Kids, Have Always Had a "Tummy"

I've always been the "chubby" kid despite being very physically active all my life. In periods where I didn't consistently work out for 6 months I would gain 20 lbs and one pant size, so I'm currently 165 lbs at size 10-12 depending on the brand. I was size 6 and 140 lbs about two years ago (but even then I had a tummy). So I read about coolsculpting and despite some negative reviews, as well...

Amazing Results - San Francisco, CA

The Coolsculpting procedure on my stomach area dramatically reduced the appearance of fat. It slimmed out the 4 areas that I had it done. I never thought I would feel confident with that area of my body, but now I do :) It has motivated me to stay in shape. Also Sarah and Dr. Welsh were amazing to work with!

Attempt to Loose Some Belly Fat-successful! - San Francisco

I came in tot he office wanted to get rid of that hard to get rid of front pouch!I work out and eat right but I am also approaching 40. I thought the process was a little painful at first but it quickly goes away and I relaxed and read magazines for the next two hours. Pretty amazing that I just left the office after that and waited for my body to do the rest of the natural action. Of...

Fraxel Re:store Worth It for Acne Scars and Melasma

I decided to do a series of Fraxel treatments about a year ago, and just had my fourth one today. I wanted to post because I feel the root cause of many negative reviews is going to a sub-par doctor or clinic that doesn't manage the risks as easily and exhaustively as they can be managed. My first recommendation is to go to a Dermatologist who is helping you w

No Lemon Lips for Me - San Francisco, CA

When I was in elementary school my first grade teacher had harsh lines all around her mouth; looked like she was sucking on a lemon. And she was mean too. So when I started developing the same it was horrifying. I never smoked and don't purse my lips alot so I guess this is just a genetics issue. So although I don't consider myself vain the appearance was something I didn't want to see in the...

5 out of 5 stars V Beam

Best Treatment! - San Francisco, CA

Researched for an Esthetician to help remove broken blood vessles on my face and came across Dr. Kathleen Welsh because of great reviews. Had a consultation and received the V Beam treatment just once for a red dot in between my eyes and a bigger blood vessle on my upper lip, which looked like a small, smooth wart. The process was virtually painless. The Technician gave me UV glass because the...

Eyes By Thermage - Review in Progress - San Francisco, CA

I am 46, light-skinned, and have pretty droopy eyelids. I tried Ultherapy 3 years ago and it didn't do anything. I just did Eyes by Thermage this morning. After reading all of the Thermage horror stories on this site, I called and spoke to the nurse who would be doing the procedure. She said their office has had only one minor side effect in the last 10 years of doing this procdure, and it...

Fraxel Laser Worked Well for Me - Evened out Skin Tone and Erased Fine Lines - San Francisco, CA

This procedure was very very painful and I could not go out of the house for about a week afterwards due to the horrible condition my face was in (re: burn victim all over my face) However, the results were very good. My skin tone was evened out and many fine lines were gone. People said I looked rested and refreshed afterwards.

3 out of 5 stars miraDry

Overpriced MiraDry treatment

NOTE - this is only a review for the *price of MiraDry*. I have not actually undertaken the procedure because I've found other providers offer a more effective protocol at a lower cost. Dr. Welsh is probably very well qualified, and I would encourage you to do your research. That said, at some point between 2013 and 2015, a new MiraDry protocol was adopted. It's called "High Volume...

You Owe It to Yourself! - San Francisco, CA

You owe it to yourself to get Miradry! For so long I denied myself the treatment because I was scared it wasn't safe. With the saline injections and use of tumescent anesthesia, there is little to no risk of nerve damage anymore. The procedure itself was relatively painless, just a few needle sticks and a slight burning sensation every now and then. I would rate it a 3 out of 10 at most...
