This story is about Ceramic braces, but first I have to tell you that I wrote a previous review about my Invisalign Braces that I wore for 1-1/2 years, titled "Anxiety and Elation about Invisalign."

My First Time Filler Under Eyes is Artefill - Houston, TX

I am middle 40's. I have always taken care of my skin by taking lots of B complex vitamins, and all other vitamins for skin, especially vitamin C which promotes collagen.

No. I did not see a color difference under the buttons. READ COMMENT

My eyes were dry for months, and looked very red for 4-6 months. I had to wear very heavy makeup. Plus any kind of exertion made them really turn red. READ COMMENT

I really did not have deep lines to begin with but the laser did do minor tightening. READ COMMENT

The old CO2full ablation:-) No worries mine blended just fine. Good luck:-) READ COMMENT

I don't know how I will feel taking off my braces in my late 40's. Certainly no one discussed with me if older people might have bone-jaw issues. It might actually be a real issue since we experience bone loss as we age. I also know... READ COMMENT
