Eyebrow Blading Tatoo - Yahoo

I have lost a good portion of my natural eyebrows from age and plucking out the grey ones. I had been thinking of doing this for quite a while and finally took the plunge. I am very happy with the results. My brows turned out a bit darker than I would like, but still much much better than what I had before. Both of my own adult kids gave me compliments without knowing I had had it done. I... READ MORE

I Finally Did It - California, CA

People describe me as slim but I have a hidden pooch of a stomach that has been bothering me for years. No matter how much I lost, it is always there. I saw a sign for CS at my dermatologist office and got a quote. They wanted me to do 4 procedures for a cost of I believe $2700. I got a second opinion from a different location who said I needed 4 procedures (or whatever they're called) and... READ MORE

Painful Procedure Even With High Pain Threshold - San Jose, CA

The cons are the cost and pain. However, I got a Groupon coupon so my procedure was a lot less expensive than usual. I have a high threshold for pain. I couldn't take prescription meds because I drove myself, so I took 800 mg. of Ibuprofin and 1000 mg of Tylenol. I don't know if that helped at all cuz it still hurt like h*ll - some shots more than others. Before the procedure began the... READ MORE

Not Much Difference, Results Are Short-lived - Hayward, CA

I wanted to try it for the experience but I only did it once. The idea of shooting poison into my body just didn't feel right. It did remove the wrinkles and there was no negative, but the results are short-lived. I prefer something more permanent. I only did the forehead area so I had no problems with losing expression in my face. I would do it again for a special occassion. I have decided... READ MORE

Over Ten Years Ago

It was so long ago I don't even remember when I did it. One of my eyes sees well far and the other near and he left them that way. Only recently have I felt the need to wear reading glasses - but so does everyone else my age. I have had no problems with night vision or anything else. I hated wearing glasses so it was well worth it for me. I don't remember how much it cost so I just put in a... READ MORE

Actually, a little over 20%. Wishful thinking? READ COMMENT

Perhaps the orthodontist told me 4 weeks because I told him from the start that I would probably not wear them while teaching. However, after reading online that most people wore them for only two weeks I rescheduled my appointment for... READ COMMENT

I am not worried about the bottom teeth as they don't show. Also, I have had problems in the past with my bottom teeth feeling strange for days when I bit into something that moved them so I wanted to avoid moving them at all. The... READ COMMENT

I have had mine for a week now. I have to wear each one for four weeks. I have not felt any pain from the invisi itself but the first day or two it hurt a bit to take if off and put it back on. I have not been wearing it as often as... READ COMMENT

Sorry for the delay. I have been out of town for the past month and a half. I see no results at all. It was a total waste of my money. READ COMMENT
