5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Needed a Lift in My Appearance and Now I Can't Stop Looking in the Mirror

I met with Dr. Balle to discuss my skin aging concerns (looking tired and fine lines setting in). Dr. Balle recommended injectable filler to address my concerns. 2 weeks later and I look 10 years younger! I will only trust Dr. Balle, with my skin aging needs. He is an expert and perfectionist. I look natural and I'm a patient for life!

5 out of 5 stars Sculptra

60 Years Old and in Need of a Better Appearance - Grosse Pointe, MI

My motivation was to have the sagging and empty areas on my cheeks improved. It makes me look older than I like and causes excessive skin folds at the mouth and chin area. The procedure took care of these concerns and I love how I look. It's amazing. I cannot think of any con other than I will need to have it done again in a couple of years.

5 out of 5 stars Restylane Silk

Needed Smoother, Thicker Skin. Grosse Pointe, MI

I saw Dr Balle for a consult and mentioned that my neck and the areas around my mouth were getting crinkly - like crepe paper. He said he could definitely help those areas. He ended up using diluted Restylane Silk, using a cannula, on my neck. He was right, it did smooth the skin out! So, a few weeks later, I went back and had him work on the areas around my mouth, to fix those etched-in fine...

Reaching That 50 Milestone - Grosse Pointe, MI

I'm a 48 year old African American female, hopeless romantic and for the past 3 years I've noticed my nasolabial folds becoming more predominant as I age. I have always believed in "keeping yourself up", a motto a play brother shared if I wished to marry one day. I routinely believe in chemical peels, facials, premium beauty products and eating healthy. So after having a procedure that...

5 out of 5 stars Voluma

60th Birthday Gift to Myself! - Grosse Pointe, MI

I was about to turn 60 and I have had multiple procedures for skin care, e.g. skin cancers, etc. I wanted to look as good as I feel at this significant time in my life. So to celebrate my birthday I consulted again with Dr. Balle. Dr. Balle educated me on the procedure, using his expertise to advise me where I should have it done and reassured me of the very satisfying results.

5 out of 5 stars Latisse

Latisse 51 Yr Old Female. Grosse Pointe, MI

Wanted to try this as I had relatively short lashes, though relatively full. My lashes were blonde at tips, so mascara necessary to even see them. I started using Latisse June 5, 2015 and have been faithfully using just about every night since then, only missing about 5 nights. The results are remarkable, with still 1 month to go for the full potential at 16 weeks!! No eye color change, just...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Botox for Forehead Lines and Crows Feet - Grosse Pointe, MI

I've had Botox numerous times with Dr. Balle for crows feet and forehead lines. The treatments have been effective and I've never had a bruise. With other doctors I've bruised for a month or more when injected with Botox in these areas. He really has a great injecting technique. It is easy to get appointments as he tries to squeeze you in even when his schedule is full. His prices are...

5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

So Glad I Did It! - Grosse Pointe, MI

I'm two weeks out from having my upper and lower abs done in one 4-hour session, and I haven't had any of the intense pain that some of the others posters mention. Even though I have exercised all of my life - LONG before it was trendy - I developed the "menopause midriff" after I hurt my back and had to stop doing crunches, etc. My waist disappeared even though I'm not overweight (although...
