The BEST Place to Go for Botox! - Bellevue, WA

I have been going to see Dr. David Santos and his lovely aesthetician Nastasha, for the last year for Botox and skincare. They use Botox to relax the lines around my eyes and yesterday, we discussed the furrow that was beginning to get established between my brow and they used some Botox there as well. I am forty-one and want to continue to look young and vibrant for my age, not artificial or...

Worked Great! - Seattle, WA

Ok, it wasn't fun by any definition, but I didn't expect an operation to be fun. It hurt, I looked awful for 2 full weeks, during which I also had bandages wrapped around my head, then I slept in a sitting position for another 2 weeks. Was it worth it? Oh yeah, and then some! My double chin is gone, my neck looks great, and the scars are barely visible-just faint pink lines on my...

I Love my More Youthfull Face and my New Found Happiness! - Bellevue, WA

I had a cosmetic procedure with Dr. Santos and I'm very impressed and happy with my results. The staff was very kind and attentive and met all my needs before and after my procedure. They ordered lunch for my husband while he waited for my procedure and put on a DVD to keep him occupied. I'm so happy I had this procedure, I look and feel 20 years younger and highly recommend Lifestyle Lift...

Much Needed Laser - Bellevue, WA

Dr. Santos performed a laser treatment on my full face to help with all my lines and wrinkles. I'm so happy with my face,my skin and my texture feels amazing. Dr. Santos also put some filler in my lips to help them up a bit and gave me a lot of information on maintenance to keep my skin looking young. The staff was so kind but the office was very busy, i guess that's a good thing. I will...

Face Covered in Clogged Pores in Desperate Need of a Hydra Facial! - Seattle, WA

I came to the Lifestyle Lift in Bellevue, WA to try their hydra facial. Prior to my treatment, my skin had a ton of little clogged pore bumps all over my face! I had tried some skin care products that at first seemed to work fine, until about a month of use and then everything went haywire. I was breaking out on my cheeks and jawline which I normally never have problems in those areas. I heard...

Revision Rhinoplasty, Scar Tissue and Retin-a

I spent around $4,000 for the first procedure The doctor at the time told me that revision surgery would only cost me the price of the facility and anesthesia, and he does not charge for revision surgery. He knew I was not satisfied with the results it left my nose looking worse, I decided to wait and see if after some time and healing would appear later, when I decided I wanted revision...

15yrs. Younger with Lifestyle Lift - Bellevue, WA

As I passed 50yrs. old I started having "jowels" and a "turkey gobbler". Now I know where the term old hen comes from. I didn't feel as old as I looked in the mirror. I had looked into Lifestyle Lift a few times but always backed out. As I am approaching retirement age I decided I wanted to do it while I am still working. I did expect it to be more invasive, but an still thrilled with the...

49 Year Old Female - Bellevue, WA

I'm motivated to write this because I read the other reviews and wondered if these people were talking about the same staff and physician??? As the staff went about their business I was extremely impressed with how kind, coordinated and professional they all were. Also, I could care less about bedside manner in a surgeon...that's an oxymoron anyway. I want someone skilled in hundreds of...
