5 out of 5 stars IPL

41 Year Old, and Have Been Going to Dr Bowes Since I Turned 30!! - Coral Gables, FL

I have been going to Dr Bowes for over 10 years. I have rosacea, and wanted to work on small wrinkes around my eyes. I now get IPL, Juviderm and Botox. She is an excellent doctor. I always ask for minimal and natural looking results, and I get them!! I have seen her practice grown over this period of time. Much deserved!!!

5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

61 Years Old Great Results with Coolsculpting and Other Treatments - Miami, FL

I have been coming to Bowes Dermatology for a little over a year. First I came to remove an annoying bulge off at below my bra, they recommended CoolSculpting. I have to admit I was a little skeptical about it, i didn't believe how you could "freeze the fat" and then your body will get rid of it. The initial consultation and treatment was done by Carla, she is very knowledgeable and...

Great Experience at Bowes Dermatology - Miami, FL

I highly recommend Dr. Bowes. I recently had fillers and Botox and had a wonderful experience. She has been doing my daughter's injections for years so I finally had the courage to go in and be seen. I am so happy that I finally did it. Not only is Dr. Bowes highly educated, she is caring, and very gentle, taking her time with you and answering questions in detail. I had Radiesse injected as...

First Time Botox & Mixed Results

I made my appointment for Botox (as well as for Juvederm) and saw one of the doctor's P.A.'s who answered ALL my questions before my treatment. She listened to all my concerns and had a wonderfully patient and warm disposition. The rest of the doctor's staff were great as well. We decided to be very conservative with the injections to my mild forehead and frown lines. The areas were first...

5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser

Loving my New Hands!!! Miami, FL

I was concerned about the look of my hands, which I thought I hadn't taken care of as much as I should. After a couple Laser treatments with Fraxel, I must say they look fantastic...They put this numbing cream that makes all the process easy, everything is explained in detail and I even got all the necessary creams I needed to use after my laser.

5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

Coolsculpting on Abdomen & Love Handles - Miami, FL

I have always had a chunky midsection, it has always bothered me. At my fittest I was able to harden my abs but I never got rid of the fat layer above it. Granted my early 20's insecurities and dieting obsession are gone and nowadays I appreciate a good meal and glass of wine. In general I have a good diet & lifestyle. Non smoker, moderate drinker. I have practised yoga for the past 7 years...
