5 out of 5 stars Kybella

Love my New Neck Sans Fat!

Peter takes great care while applying the Kybella treatment. I barely felt anything. Also he equips you with free medication that helps any (if any) bruising or swelling, which is a big plus. This was my first time ever doing any kind of anti-aging treatment and I really appreciated the care he puts into his patience, not just during the procedure, but after as well.

4 out of 5 stars Fractional Laser

31 AA F W/ Deep Boxcar and Ice Pick Scars on Cheeks - New York

Dr. Was nice, well groomed, and he talked to me throughout my visit. I know this is strange to say, but his breath smelled good too, with someone being so close to your face for about an hour, you notice things like that, well I did at least.
