Prolonged Healing from Active Fx - Los Angeles, CA

Overall, at this point (almost 5 weeks post active fx on face, neck, chest), my face looks horrible. It looked better two weeks after, but progressively got redder and darker red areas around eyes. Also have a small rash under each eye, not sure from what? Have been diligent about sunblock,... READ MORE

Too Early to Tell- Quite Painful - San Diego, CA

I had this done in combination with a q switched laser to remove brown spots on face, chest, and hands. I also had a pulse dye laser for veins on the face. The veins disappeared miraculously! I have lots of dark brown spots on my hands and chest. I have to say that out of the three lasers, the... READ MORE

Never Again and Why Would Anyone Subject Themselves to This?? - Newport Beach, CA

I had this done to my upper abdomen yesterday. Obviously it's too soon for results, but I don't care. I would NEVER have put myself through this discomfort had I known. Unreal. Nothing could be worth this. Not only the discomfort of the machine grabbing your skin and not being able to move,... READ MORE

Two Times with Vi - NO PEEL. Dana Point, CA

This is the second time I've done this peel with no peeling! I followed the instructions to a 't' so I really don't want any doctors or anyone else to say, oh, you must have missed a step. I am a RN and I followed those instructions meticulously. I took a week off work, using up my PTO time... READ MORE

Depressed and Now Have Awful Lines - La Jolla, CA

I have had juvederm before with good results in marionette lines. I opted to have someone 'new' do it as she was doing belotero, which I have had done by her before. After she was done, you could see white bumps and more pronounced lines than before. She also put dysport in my lower face and... READ MORE

PIH Post-Active FX

8-9 weeks post active fx, with no pre-treatment, have developed PIH on both cheeks. I am light skinned, a touch of olive. Compounded 8% hydroquinone/tretinoin is way too... READ MORE

Can't Figure out Cause of Milia

I have only recently begun to get several tiny milia under eyes and on eyelids. Can't see why? Using hypoallergenic cream on eye area, not new. Can they be removed by a... READ MORE

How Long Are Your Eyes Red After Milia Extraction?

I am going for milia extraction in a few days on a Friday. How long will my eyes be red after this? Many small ones on upper eyelids and below eyes. I have to go on a business... READ MORE

Will 10 days be enough time to recover and go back to work after Fraxel Laser for upper lip lines and wrinkles?

I would like to have fraxel done on my upper lip area only. The rest of my skin is probably OK. Would ten days be sufficient to be able to cover any redness so I could go back... READ MORE

My juvederm was placed poorly. what can I do?

Now I have a definite line in the marionette area. The injector placed the juvederm in an area that has accentuated the lines. I can actually see a white area under the skin.... READ MORE

Effects of Dysport to DAO- supposedly to help marionette lines (Photo)

I had dysport injected on both sides of my chin, apparently, 'dao' to 'help' with marionette lines, which were barely noticeable before. Now I have very pronounced lines,... READ MORE

Removal of syringomas

Just had some milia removed by a dermatologist. Went really well, but I have about 5 syringomas total. Left eye has 4. Has anyone had any luck removing them? If so, what was... READ MORE

You appear to be one of the lucky ones.. I've read many horror stories, backed up with pictures about volume nightmares. I had a PA recommend it to me. I said, NO and she injected belotero into my cheeks, anyway. I looked freakish. ... READ COMMENT

Was it juverderm? I need to find a physician who can do a good job on my lines around my mouth READ COMMENT

Sorry for your experience. the more they inject, the more they bill. that's what is all about for them. I really don't think they absolutely know how the filler will look. I would not go near 'Voluma' for any amount of money in the... READ COMMENT

You're lucky. I had 'dysport' injected in my upper lip and I could hardly talk, let alone using a straw was disgusting looking. I am drooling out of the right side of my mouth. Hopefully it will wear off soon. I will never get... READ COMMENT
