Upper Lip Lines and Marionette Lines Touch Up - New York

I had Ulthera done around my mouth for upper lip lines and marionette lines. The lines were not horrible but beginning to be notcieable. I am now less than three months away from the procedure and can see improvement. I think it is probably worth doing but it is really painful - and my procedure was only about 20 minutes. I took some painkillers but I cannot imagine doing my whole face without... READ MORE

Always Get Compliments After Procedure - New York, NY

I get a microdermabrasion about 3 - 4 times a year. Everytime I've done this other women (and some men!) ask what I've done to my skin - it looks great!  (by the way I am 53 and easily look 10 years younger!) As an add-on to a facial it works very nicely as well.  Don't expect this procedure to get rid of your wrinkles although it may minimize very fine lines. What is... READ MORE

Would Do It Again in a Heartbeat - New York

He was right. Even though I was prescribed... READ MORE

OK for Light Maintenance

I  did this procedure about 6 - 8 months ago to maintain a Thermage procedure I had had about 2 years ago. It is much less painful than Thermage but I had to have 3 treatments at $475 each. It doesn't do as much as Thermage but does tighten up a little and seemed to improve the overall condition of my skin. At 53 everyone says my skin looks great. Now, I also had an eyelift 3 years ago... READ MORE

Pretty Good but Hurt Like Hell

I had Thermage about 2 years ago and it hurt like hell. I had to have it done twice because after 6 months there were no visible results from the first treatment. My doctor admitted that it didn't do anything and didn't charge me for the second treatment. A representative from Thermage was there to supervise the procedure the second time. I took 2 Percodan and a valium and it still hurt a... READ MORE
