30's East Asian Fair Skin with Light Freckling. San Francisco, CA

I love sublative lasers! I haven't tried Fraxel yet, but Angelina Jolie gets those done and she looks amazing for her age so I'll be looking into that as well. I heard Thermage results were varied with fat loss and other scary results so I'll stay away from Thermage. Back to sublative, although I saw immediate results for dissipating my very light and moderate freckles on my cheeks as well... READ MORE

At Home 2mm Dermaroller Every 2-4 Weeks for Past 6 Months

I've done at home dermaroller for the past 6 months, rolling moderately firm pressure (some pinpoints of blood and definite popping sound on forehead) every 2-4 weeks with a 2mm roller 560 needles (I think). At first, right after rolling, my skin was bright red (I have fair east Asian skin) right after, then for a few days the first 2x I rolled my skin was super dry and peeled a bit, just a... READ MORE

Love Botox! - San Francisco, CA

I started getting botox treatments maybe 5 years ago, I haven't really kept with maintenance of it every year. I'd say I get it done conservatively every 8-10 months but realistically every 5-6 months is how long it lasts. After 4 months forehead movements are more malleable.

He's retired! But his clinic was Real Clinic in Gangnam. READ COMMENT

No one suffered from this doctor's artistry. He's been retired for years and his book about beauty, written after hisretirement, was a best seller. This was one of the most famous secret plastic surgeons to Korean celebrities and... READ COMMENT

Thanks Eve! Start with the smaller needles, 0.5mm, those don't hurt at all. It'll help serums and the water pack sink in a little bit deeper. I wish I had taken progress photos but I didn't given the wide vascillating outcomes from... READ COMMENT

Yeah, he's now on the speaking lecturing circuit, retired from practicing. The most private clinics you won't find that well, they don't market heavily since they don't need to and their clientele are resident Korean celebs. You kind... READ COMMENT

I had a revision nose job so it was almost $4k, probably closer to $3500 back 6 years ago. They probably raised prices a but since then. I stayed with family, no charge. It really only takes 7-10 days for your stitches to come out... READ COMMENT
