5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

58 Year Old Hoping to Improve Profile and Remove Fat from the Neck Area Under the Jawline. Oakbrook, IL

After consulting with 5 plastic surgeons for facelift/necklift and investigating Kybella and Thermi RF, I decided on coolsculpting to remove residual fat from a 2011 liposuction of the neck/jowls. The doctor's assistant will be applying 2 coolsculpting neck applicators to the area. I am excited to see the results over the next couple months. Today is Day 2. I will post updates once a week...

5 out of 5 stars Restylane Silk

New Lips. Fuller - Oak Brook, IL

I had restylane silk injected in my lips Monday and my lips were swollen for one day. I just have a little bit of bruising. They numbed my lips with lidocaine first then I had basically 6 injections on both my upper and lower lips. I didn't feel anything, was just numb for a couple hours afterwards. But I love the outcome. So excited. I definitely recommend it.

5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

Great Experience! - Oakbrook Terrace, IL

I had my Cool Sculpting procedures done on my inner and outer thighs. I had my right outer thigh treated once and my left outer thigh treated twice. My inner thighs were each treated once. It took a few months to completely see the results on my outer thighs, but now it's very easy for me to see! The results on my inner thighs were apparent after about 6 or 7 weeks. I'm very happy with how my...

Pushing 50 - Oakbrook, IL

So I'm turning 50 this year and decided to jump start getting back into shape. 2 kids. And a TT about 17 years ago. They used the larger plates on me. It was very uncomfortable the first five minutes. But other than that. It was a breeze. Both sides of lower abs. The massage after was uncomfortable but tolerable. They also took time to discuss after care. Found the pictures. That's about...

MicroLaser Peel and ProFractional - The Real Story-Oakbrook Terrace, IL

Had the MicroLaserPeel and ProFractional. Excellent procedure and I had great results. There is no possibility that you can lose muscle with this procedure. It doesn't go that deep. I wish with these reviews the people who actually write them are educated about the procedure being performed. Down time for me was 3-4 days. Slight puffiness and swelling. All of this was expected...
