5 out of 5 stars Restylane

This Doctor Likes What She Does and It Shows! - Pompano Beach, FL

Dr. Melanie really enjoys what she does. You can tell immediately upon your first appointment. She is more affordable than other Dermatologists I have been to. I had fillers with her 6 months ago and she has a artistic technique that looks natural. You can tell she has been doing this for a while. A steady hand, professional, and reasonable pricing. I will be back! they just added something called Ultherapy to their practice. I will be making my appointment soon! I know she will provide competitive pricing and use her natural skill to rejuvenate me before the holidays!

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Safe, Professional & Skilled - Pompano Beach, FL

Dr Melanie has an innate sense for the aesthetic. In the past I've had Botox and fillers even lasers from other doctors with some satisfaction but nothing I would return for or recommend to a friend. Thank goodness I found Dr Melanie Hecker who walked me through what I was to expect from my treatment yet delivered more by exceeding my expectations with full correction. My friends tell me how good I look and they want to know what I am doing! As a badge of honor I happily tell them how thrilled I was to have found a dermatology practice where I feel comfortable visiting primarily because I trust she’s in-the know regarding how to administer these specialty-aesthetic-procedures. As a 50 year old vain male (ex NY’r) it’s been tough to seek-out a provider (especially in S. Florida) to help me look naturally younger - thank goodness I finally discovered a smart, kind, expert physician at Hecker Dermatology.

Botox - Pompano Beach, FL

Hecker Dermatology was a great experience. I was recommended by a friend who looked great after her injection of fillers. Me being a first timer, she knew exactly what to do to give me a natural not overdone look. I got 3 areas done! I am extremely satisfied with the results. Her pricing is very reasonable and I will definitely go back for more treatments. I was extremely impressed with her office staff. They were very friendly and answered all questions that I had. In addition, I was taken back into the exam room very quickly by the staff who made sure I was comfortable. Dr. Hecker spent alot of time with me discussing my options to make sure that I would be happy with the outcome of the treatment.
