5 out of 5 stars UltraShape

Excellent and Natural Looking Results with Dr Martie Gidon for Botox, Thermage and UltraShape

With visible results that far exceeded my expectations the procedure was completely pain free and comfortable . I wish I'd done it sooner! I feel confident and proud of my body for the first time in over a decade! Worth every cent. I strongly recommend UltraShape and Dr Gidon and her fab team !

5 out of 5 stars Botox

37 Years Old. Toronto, ON

Hi i've been coming to Dr. Gidon for about a year now. I originally came for IPL for my sun damage spots and then decided recently I wanted to get botox for my lines around my eyes and forehead. Dr. Gidon was so great at explaining what and where she is doing the injections. She has a very gentle touch and I felt very comfortable in her care. Let me just say in a few days the botox kicked in...

5 out of 5 stars Latisse

Latisse with Dr. Gidon - Toronto, ON

I had spoken to so many of Dr. Gidon's patients who had been using Latisse, and their lashes all looked amazing. So I decided to try it, and has made a huge difference. My lashes were so thin (barely noticeable, even with mascara). After 6 weeks of Latisse, I am so thrilled with the outcome. My eyes look different -- I've had compliments, but nobody knows exactly why they look...

5 out of 5 stars Skin Rejuvenation

Selphyl for Lines and Wrinkles (Eyes and Mouth Area) - Toronto, ON

I highly recommend getting Selphyl if, like me, you were looking to to treat unwanted wrinkles, restore skin volume, and rejuvenate your face, all using your own blood platelets as the "dermal filler." I was drawn to it because the filler was created from my own blood. When injected, it activates new skin cell growth and helps to regenerate collagen. I had a series of treatments, and I am...

OxyGeneo is Amazing. Toronto, ON

I am so glad that Oxygeneo has come to Canada! It is an amazing 3 in 1 facial -- exfoliates, infuses, and oxygenates. Immediately after the Oxygeneo facial, my face felt softer, and looked smoother than ever before. It think it's more effective than a microderm abrasion, and you cannot beat the price.

5 out of 5 stars SmartXide

28 Years Old 4th Smartxide Dot Laser Performed by Dr. Gidon. Toronto, ON

I had my first Dot treatment with Dr. Gidon and recently received my 4th Dot treatment last week. I love Smartxide Dot Laser treatment compared to other lasers mainly because it is less painful for my skin type and dramatic results with one treatment. I am not a smoker or sun lover but I had been suffering from severe acne from my teenage years. I am looking forward receiving my 5th treatment...

Isolaz for Sudden Adult Acne!!

I had never had acne in my life. Not even in my teen years. I am 36, and suddenly, a few weeks ago, I broke out in pimples all over my jaw line and upper neck. I was really upset. I went to Dr. Gidon to get the pimples extracted, and then I got Isolaz. There was an immediate noticeable difference. I have had three treatments since, and the pimples have been drastically reduced. I can barely...

5 out of 5 stars Derma Roller

Derma-pen with Dr. Gidon - Toronto, ON

I had my first derma-pen treatment with Dr. Gidon, and I have already booked two more! Derma-pen (also called "micro-needling") is great because it can focus on specific areas. For me, this is the fine lines around the mouth, above the lip, and around the eyes. I also had my neck done. There was no pain, and I looked fine the next day (ie., minimal down time). I believe derma-pen is superior...

5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser

Super Fraxel - Toronto, ON

For those who are annoyed with the fine lines that protrude from the mouth area, as I have been, or any areas in the "lower face" area, I highly recommend getting Fraxel laser with Dr. Gidon (Toronto). After one treatment, I noticed a difference (ie., the fine lines were less noticeable), and I have gotten two more treatments because I have been so thrilled. Dr. Gidon and her staff are like...

5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser

Fraxel for Fine Lines and Wrinkles - Toronto, ON

I had been looking for a procedure to deal with the really annoying fine lines protruding from my mouth, and the "crepy" look on my neck. Dr. Gidon (Toronto) recommended Fraxel for both areas, and I couldn't be happier. I noticed a difference (minimized fine lines) that I hadn't expected, and I am having another treatment in 6 weeks!! Very, very pleased.
