Damaged and Dried out Eye Area - Los Angeles, CA

So I did the peel last week with a booster. It was extremely irritating and painful the first 2 days, the next 2 days I peeled and looked crazy (You can not leave the house during this process). 5 days off work atleast will be required !On day four my cheeks had peeled but not the area around my eyes, at this point I could no longer use the provided moisturizer because it was setting me on...

Trusculpt Total Scam - Marina Del Rey, CA

I went to the best doctor in Los Angeles for Trusculpt. Technician who did the procedure was super nice, however this procedure is nothing more than an overpriced scam. It is VERY painful, especially on sensitive areas. There are absolutely no improvements with this procedure in fat reduction or cellulite reduction. Save your money !! READ MORE

Total Fx is NOT for Crows Feet! - Santa Monica, CA

My doctor told me to get total fx for crows feet. It did absolutely NOTHING for crows feet. I already had a great complexion, so the results were zero! Maybe the FX lasers work on brown spots, but it does not work well on orbital creases or sagging. The doctor was very experienced and really cranked the laser up, so the lack of results was not his fault! READ MORE

Improvement But Far FAR from Expectations! - Beverly Hills, CA

I finally went to several consultations and decided on a little fancy Institute on the corner of Beverly Hills. They charged 4500. I am one week out and most of the swelling is gone, there is no pain and I have recovered well. HOWEVER, the doctor did not... READ MORE
