5 out of 5 stars Photofacial
I had my first Photofacial yesterday. To my surprise a few hours later I noticed a lot of dark spots on my face. I didn't see all of this pigmentation before because it was very light. I'm not happy with the dark spots but I know it's evidence of a good treatment so I am anxiously waiting for them to slough off. I'm doing the recommended 5 treatments and I'll post a...

I'm 58. Any questions?
5 out of 5 stars Voluma
Voluma is a very simple procedure no pain experienced no down time. Love how the product increases the volume in cheek area. Also helps with under eye wrinkles. Doctor and staff at Lakes Dermatology are the best! All procedures done at the office are handled in a very professional manner. I can only say wonderful things about Lakes Dermatology.
5 out of 5 stars Restylane
I have done injections in my lips for 5 years. The most recent place I went to was 100 percent cheating me out of product. I went to rueckl and I am sooooo happy with my results. He's so nice and does an amazing job. I have not looked better and he uses all the product. Def need to try him!!! He is worth it.
5 out of 5 stars Sclerotherapy
Have been wanting to do this for a long time; sorry I waited. Great process with minimal pain and no downtime...and it works..results can be seen immediately. Three sessions spaced 4-6 wk apart. I am glad to be rid of big veins, but some small ones remain that I can live with. This procedure was worth the money.
5 out of 5 stars Hyaluronidase
Dr. Rueckl is a great, accommodating doctor. I traveled to Vegas and had him check the drooping side of my lip which was previously injected with volbella by a different doctor. Before this, I had consultation through email and he answers each one of them. I just had 1 shot of hyaluronidase injection and there's already been an improvement. The shot didn't hurt or sting that much. The next...
5 out of 5 stars Photofacial
I started going to the Spa for photofacials and have had Whitney every session, which I believe I had 7. She was extremely professional and friendly every single visit. She explained everything and I am thrilled with my results!! I am going back soon and will be requesting her again!!! She is the best!!! I started going to the Spa for photofacials and have had Whitney every session, which I...
5 out of 5 stars Restylane Silk
I've been going to Dr Rueckl for many years and would never go to anyone else. I thoroughly trust his opinion. He's helped me maintain a youthful look with botox and fillers. The Spa is always great at recommending the best peels or facials for my skin type. I feel like he and his staff offer the best advice as to what the best treatments are for me. I've never had any issues with...
5 out of 5 stars Scars Treatment
This Dr has done many procedures on me such as scar treatment from BA surgery, Accutane for acne, Voluma for cheeks, botox, and Restlyne for lips. He's very down to earth and laid back, also runs specials for injections and has lowered my genesis price for scar treatment. My scars are nearly gone and I love all the results from the injections. I highly highly recommended this Dr. I'm not sure...
5 out of 5 stars Acne Treatment
Great skin care products and services at the spa. Also quick and painless freezing of the ugly brown spots on my face. I have referred Dr. Rueckl to my family for skin cancer on my mothers ear, wort removal on my brother and mole removal on my husband, as well to my friends and co-workers. They were all very pleased. You will be too.
My goal is to provide safe, effective cosmetic and traditional dermatology procedures in my offices. And to provide these services with a level of care and kindness that is often missed in medicine today.
Free. Consultations are free for cosmetic procedures only; for medical services, a fee will apply.

Youthful choices for tattoos, navel piercings, and ear gauges can be regretted later What is considered fashionable and mainstream can change completely over the decades. A perfect example of this is the tattoo. What was once the province of sailors and sideshow attractions has now become a staple of youth culture and a sign of individuality. The number of people in the United States now sporting some type of body ink is truly staggering, and body art has become big business. A full...
Patients are happy to have their double chin gone via injections of Kybella Dr. F. Victor Rueckl, M.D. is now the #1 Injector of Kybella in Nevada!

Juvéderm Vollure XC is the first FDA-approved HA filler for moderate to severe facial wrinkles that lasts up to 18 months The old adage of putting one's best face forward has some wisdom behind it. An individual's face is an important aspect of how the world views them, and many people want to present a face that looks as young and as healthy as possible. While the skin itself is the largest organ of the human body, coming in at roughly 18.5 square feet, the face is what captures the ...
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are used to counteract wrinkles. The products work by blocking the nerves that contract muscles and soften the appearance of wrinkles.Botox is most effective on wrinkles that are not set in their ways. In other words, they are not “dynamic” wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are those that appear while one is moving their face, like squinting or frowning.“If you don’t move the muscle too much, you don’t actually form the wrinkle,” says Lakes Dermatology...
