Reviews & Stories

Experienced and Professional - Lake Oswego, OR

I have seen Dr. Klein for cosmetic dermatology for a few years. Dr. Klein placed Voluma Right where I needed it. The procedure was painless and lovely improvement. I did not bruise and was happy with the procedure from begging to end. Dr. Klein is an expert at injections and makes your trip to the dermatologist worth every penny. READ MORE

Belotero in Lips and Marionette Lines - Portland, OR

This was the second time I had Belotero. My dermatologist said she does not use it much, but I wanted to give it a try. In the past I have used Restylane, Juvederm and now Belotero. The Belotero has pretty much settled in at 9 days. I am going to give it two weeks before my final decision. Some of looks great and some not so great. I have a little lump on my lip that I hope will get better in... READ MORE

Xeomin Worked Quicker Than Botox -Portland, OR

Had Xeomin for the first time a week ago. Not only did it work quick it was effective. Lines between my eyes dissipated within 3 days. Crows feet gone in that amount of time too. I have used Botox for many years and liked it. Xeomin is just as good, but not as expensive. I might have Botox next time to get a good comparison. It always takes about 7-10 for Botox to work for me. The Xeomin... READ MORE

Sculptra Worked but Took a While

I had two sessions of sculptra to fill in cheek hollows and temples. It seems to work slowly and up to five months later. Anyway, it took a while but did fill in cheek and temple hollows fairly well. No one notices, unfortunately, or fortunately, I am not sure. Would defintely use on temples again, not sure about cheeks. READ MORE

Love Botox - furrow lines and crows feet - Oregon

I have had botox many times for furrow lines and crows feet. My doctor puts in just enough to minimize the lines, yet I can frown a bit. This last time I had her put in less for crows feet so I could have some smiles lines show. Before they were totally erased. With a bit less, they showed, but I don't mind. I like having expression. So, sometimes less is more. READ MORE

Recent comments from R Nel

It has been just over a month since Belotero in lips and marionette lines. Holding up well in marionette area. My lip had a small bump that is hardly noticeable and glad I did not go in and have it dissolved. Belotero worked well. READ COMMENT

Restylane did not cause the puffiness I experienced from Belotero. Also, I did not have any bumps in lips from Restylane. The lump in my lip is still there after two weeks, but it is small and I might not bother having it dissolved as... READ COMMENT
