5 out of 5 stars Accutane

23 Year Old Male Went if for Second Accutane Treatment. Torrance, CA

There is a video of me 4 months post accutane. It worked like a charm. I got extremely red and pale and hated being on it but within a few months of being off you start to return to your normal self. Invest in anything and everything to 1) Keep you moisturized and 2) Protect your skin from the sun. DO NOT take these things lightly and everything should be okay.

5 out of 5 stars Sculptra

Sculptra - Torrance, CA

60 years old and needing to fill where face lost fat. This is my 3rd year and 5 time having Dr. Goodlerner inject Sculptra. The results are very subtle and but effective in obtaining the result.

5 out of 5 stars Radiesse

Radiesse - Torrance, CA

I've had Radiesse injections with Dr. Goodlerner several times with excellent results. I had my cheeks and nasal labial folds done and it looks great. Dr. Goodlerner not only is an artist with fillers, she has a very gentle hand and I swear, it is not painful. I would highly recommend her services.

Since my scarring is pretty deep on my cheeks, the improvement has been slow but steady. Especially after the 4th treatment, the scarring has really softened and my overall skin tone is much more even. I had the subcision 2 weeks before the 4th...
