Dysport - No Difference at All! - Arcadia, CA

I got Dysport at the recommendation of my primary care physician who said it was a good alternative to Botox. She said they had a $75- rebate offer going on, so I thought, why not?! Well, I didn't notice any difference at all in my appearance after the Dysport injections. I got them under my eyes and around my lips, and the wrinkles are still there. The worst thing is that the Dysport... READ MORE

Just Not Noticeable Enough!

I wanted to get rid of the smoker's lines around my mouth, and I got a little bit of Botox and one syringe of Juvederm injected into my upper lip. It was VERY PAINFUL, even though my doctor injected the inside of my mouth with Novocaine (I think that's what it was) *four times*! I could totally feel the needle going in and pushing the Juvederm in. Maybe the doctor just put the needle in too... READ MORE

Didn't Work at All and I Wasted THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS! - Los Angeles, CA

Yes, you read it right, I've spent at least $10,000 on laser hair removal and it has not worked at all! The first round of treatments through UCLA Medical Center were costly and worthless.  I spent $500 per series of treatments, and I had a LOT of treatments.  I was trying to get a more "acceptable" bikini area if you know what I mean.  It was very...

Absolutely Not Worth It! - Arcadia, CA

I got my microdermabrasion in conjunction with a series of chemical peels (which were also worthless, by the way).  It didn't hurt, and it didn't improve the appearance of my skin one bit.  I think my skin looks better after I use a facial scrub than after I got microdermabrasion! READ MORE

I Can't See at Night but I Can See Perfectly During the Day!

The reason my Lasik was sooo expensive is because I got it done when it first came out, and I got it done by an actual doctor, not just a trained technician.  I think I paid somewhere around $3950 per eye or something outrageous. Anyway, I had 20/200 vision with astigmatism before the surgery and now I have perfect vision.  The biggest drawback is my night vision.  I was told... READ MORE

Looked OK for Awhile, but Not Pleased with Long-term Results

I got 8 liters of fat lipo's out of my abdomen the first time, and I got arm lipo the second time.  I am not satisfied with either result. My stomach lipo came out all lumpy and took away my curves (I wanted some waist definition and it totally made me look like a boy!).  My belly button sticks straight up in the air when I lay on my back, which is weird. I don't think the... READ MORE

Didn't See Any Change at All and Very Painful Procedure!

I went through 2 sessions of the Lipodissolve and I don't think it did one bit of good.  It was extremely painful afterwards.  They tell you to massage the area because the medicine forms hard pockets, and I cried the whole time I did it. I think the basic premise of the procedure is basically hogwash. READ MORE

I got my eyebrows and eyeliner done. - Mixed Results - South Pasadena, CA

The first time I got permanent make-up, I got my eyebrows and eyeliner done.  I hated the results (or lack thereof).  No one could even tell that I had gotten the procedures done.  It was extremely painful, even though the woman who did it supposedly put some numbing gel on my eyes beforehand.  My eyebrows are thinning out toward the middle and now the hair doesn't even...

Treatment for Smoker's Lips?

I used to smoke and I have a lot of wrinkles on my upper lip from "pursing my lips." I don't necessarily need fuller lips (although that would be OK). My main... READ MORE
