5 out of 5 stars ArteFill
My biggest "concern" for years has been my under eye bags, which just kept getting lower and more prominent. I have had several consultations for surgery and thought that was the way to go. However, one surgeon had advised me as Dr. K also did in my consultation: "Don't remove the fat. You'll be sorry." Dr. K explained that the problem wasn't really too much...
5 out of 5 stars Ultherapy
Recently I had the new Ultherapy treatment at the Key Laser Institute here in Portland (Oregon). Full disclosure here, I'm a middle aged man and had heard about this procedure from a friend. After a free initial consultation, I decided to have the treatment. With all of my questions answered to my satisfaction, I went ahead with the Ultherapy. I was told there would be some "pain...
5 out of 5 stars Ultherapy
For skin laxity and tone. My Co2 and Ultherapy treatments returned remarkable results. I found that my skin texture immediately improved and continued to smooth and look more youthful over the next several months. There was also a significant tightening effect, particularly around the eyes.

5 out of 5 stars CO2 Laser
To help fight a ruddy complexion. I am a southern California gal. Now at age 64, sun damage over the years is a real problem. A procedure called CO2 dot therapy was recommended to me. It's like someone has taken a magic brush, and brushed away fine lines, and acne scars of many years ago. I am thrilled with the results.

I had this treatment done on my face almost two weeks ago and the results are so much better than I'd expected! I'm 38yo and spent a lot of time in the sun until about 5 years ago. I had more wrinkles and spots than others my age and now I think I look more like I'm 30 than 38! Some of my lines are completely gone and others are significantly reduced. I've been told the results...
5 out of 5 stars Laser Liposuction
After researching the various options and satisfaction levels of the various procedures, I opted for laser lipolysis because it was a procedure that had positive write-ups in both the medical community, as well as those who experienced the procedure. When combining the positive end result with minimal recovery time and a fair cost, it was the easy choice.
5 out of 5 stars PicoSure
Dr. Key and his staff are the best. From the moment I walked in to the moment I left, I was well taken care of. First they took before photos. Then the started the numbing process. The experience level is top notch. Beautiful office. As promised there was no downtime. I am looking forward to my next PicoSure.

For the past two years we helped conduct investigative trials to study the efficacy of Thermi250’s radiofrequency technology for shrinking tissue and body shaping.

Both offer long-lasting, beneficial results for slowing the signs of aging. What is Juvederm Ultra Plus? Juvederm Ultra...
