5 out of 5 stars Botox

Botox - Beverly Hills, CA

Dr. Shamban is the best. There's no one else I'd let put a needle as close to my eye as she does. She opens up my left eye so that my eyes are symmetrical. I think Dr. Shamban is a magician. Thank you so much. I continually fill out these reviews but it never is reflected in my records to receive the discount.

5 out of 5 stars V Beam

Ematrix 4th Session & Vbeam 1st Session - Santa Monica, CA

This is my 4th session of ematrix and I am blown away by the results. Don't go in expecting perfection after one session but you will definitely see improvement right away. It takes about a week to fully recover from the redness and track marks but nothing some mineral makeup can't hide. This laser has restored my self confidence and I couldn't be happier. The ladies at ava md always greet you...

5 out of 5 stars Bellafill

Amazing Treatment for Acne Scars!! - Santa Monica, CA

Incredible technology, incredible treatment. I can honestly say that Bellafill has been a life saver for me. I've had acne scars on my face since high school. I suffered with the scarring through college, my 20's, and into my professional career. Insecure doesn't even begin to describe how I felt when I saw the girls and guys around me with perfect skin. My whole life I just wished that the...

5 out of 5 stars Active FX

Active FX & Deep FX for Sun Damage, Facial Wrinkles

I am now on day 6 after ACTIVE FX treatment on my face and DEEP FX under my eyes. I can't tell you how amazed I am with the results! My skin looks better than when I was 12 years old! No joke! I had a lot of sun damage and wrinkles under my eyes and it's all gone!! I almost can't believe my eyes. I was worried about doing it because I've read some bad reviews, but I am so happy I went...

3 out of 5 stars Total FX

Not really worth it for significant scarring - Santa Monica, CA

I just had Total FX, two days ago on July 22, 2008 in Santa Monica, CA. She is the dermatologist seen on the show "Extreme Makeover", but it was actually one of her nurses that performed the procedure for acne scarring and a few small undereye wrinkles. I am a 41 year old female with significant rolling scars (depressed scars)on my forehead and cheeks. I have had 3 past Fraxel treatments...

1 out of 5 stars Acne Scars Treatment

Horrible Result!!

The nurse recommended me do the Smooth beam, After the treatment it left me the pigment, the acne mark also nothing changed. Now I have to dealing with the pigment. I am really disappointed. Totally wasting my...

1 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser

Total Disappointment! - Santa Monica, CA

I had a consultation by Dr Shamban @Santa Monica Blvd Dec 2006 because "acne style" scars on my face from the old accident. I had done my homework very carefully so I was perfectly aware that only treatment what can actually help me was a traditional CO2 laser peel. I knew it was extremely strong procedure with a long down time but because most of the reviews were highly positive, I was...
