5 out of 5 stars Laser Resurfacing

Dot Laser on Entire Face - Atlanta

Just had the Dot Laser treatment done on my entire face today and holy sh*t did it hurt! I've had other laser treatments done before such as fraxel (sp?) and other high tech laser treatments but know one prepared me for how this was going to feel. In fact, everyone told me it would hurt less. With the other treatments it could get pretty uncomfortable but not nearly to where I was cursing...

58 Yr Old Had Restylane Under Lip and Cheeks. Atlanta, GA

Horrible outcome under lips. have had two Hyaluronidase injections as a follow-up and it left my under lip area extremely lumpy. 14 months later I still have the lumpiness and the doctor, a board certified dermatologist, said "oh well, some patients it can take up to 3 years for the granular filler to get out"

5 out of 5 stars PicoSure

Picosure Laser Tattoo Removal - Atlanta, GA

Just had my first laser treatment tattoo removal! My husband and I are seriously shocked at how much of my tattoo is gone. I was hoping for the best but I'm super happy! I'm the palest you can get on the pale scale and my tattoo is 17 years old so I have that in my favor. I went to this doctor because of another review I found on here so I wanted to help others who are looking to do this. Your...

Tattoo Regret - Yet Another Sad Story You've Heard a Million Times - Atlanta, GA

Because my stupid mistake made in my much-younger years was filled with tons of green and blue, I've had to wait for many years to even attempt removal. Even in Atlanta there aren't many places that offer the PicoSure and/or PicoWay lasers. I chose Dermatology Associates of Atlanta because they not only have PicoSure and PicoWay, but also the Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser for tattoo removal. I...

2 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

No Results for Me. :-( - Atlanta, GA

I wanted to try a non invasive technique first to remove my belly fat. Did large upper and lower abdomen and 2 med flanks (sides). Took about 3 hours. It didnt really hurt. It just felt like frozen bricks of butter but when it melted, the fat did not seem to melt. It was uncomfortable for the next few weeks but I felt as though it was a waste of my money so I went and got real lipo.
