Exilis definitely reduces fat, but you can gain it back - San Francisco, CA

Want mostly skin tightening w/ minor reduction/'sculpting'. Have researched Exilis, Ulthera, Cellulase. Ulthera sounded painful. 1 Cellulase review said derm mistook loose skin for cellulite and my doctor thinks that's my situation w/ buttocks-thighs; expects me to meet 50% of my goal in 4...

Ulthera Brow Lift and Eye Area didn't work, bummer

I have some loose skin above/below my eyes. My brows are slightly lower than I want. (I had tried Exilis in that area 2x.) Total Pain was low (think lower face is worse). Yes hurt, but for 1 hr in room, but only 3 min total treatment (30 rounds @ 5 sec each). No diff yet, only day 1. 3... READ MORE

Infini RF gave me under-eye hollows! San Jose, CA

I did the Infini-RF treatment 5 days ago to see if I could get further improvement from my prior laser treatments, plus DIY microneedling. I want to share my real-time progress because I noticed most of the Infini-RF posts are after the fact with multiple people seeing the same doctor. This... READ MORE

Fat Graftings for Under Eye Hollows. San Jose, CA

This is only day 6 from my fat grafting for under eye hollows. I am taking all of the photos myself in the same lighting. Normal diffused lighting, no flash. My skin color is light there, this is 100% from fat loss. I wanted fat transfer for 2 main reasons: - the final result is permanent... READ MORE

Questions from 4ever Young

Why Do They Only Use a 20% Cooling with Me Instead of a 10% Cooling?

1. I am using Exilis for a small bit of contouring, and the clinic I use for Exilis says that since I have less fat, put the Exilis setting to 20% cooling instead of 10%... READ MORE

Which is More Effective, Exilis or the New Thermage?

I have read a lot of doctor's opinions here on Ulthera being better than Thermage, but what about Exilis vs Thermage for tightening of the face (not discussing fat reduction).... READ MORE

How Long Must I Wait After Doing Exilis Before I Do Ulthera?

I am doing Exilis 1st (4 sessions, pre-paid, each 10 days apart), since not painful &1/2 the price of Ulthera locally (I checked a lot). I read Exilis goes 1-3 cm &... READ MORE

Better to remove or secure loose Gore-Tex check implant? Doctor wants me to replace both implants, even the secure one?

I had Gore-Tex cheek implants placed >25 years ago. 4 years ago, a cosmetic doctor wanted to add some filler and one implant got infected. I recovered from the infection 100%.... READ MORE

How do I find a qualified doctor to remove (not replace) Gore-Tex cheek implants?

25+ yrs ago, I got small cheek implants. 4 years ago I had an infection; I recovered 100%, but one implant pocket got so loose, the implant shifted down & now gets a bit in the... READ MORE

Since you aren't supposed to sit for 2-3 weeks, how do you get home from doctors office after fat grafting to the buttocks?

What if the doctor is 2 hours from your home - special pillows where you sit on your thighs only are hard to use in cars. Are you supposed to break up the drive and walk in... READ MORE

Wow, what a mean and un-constructive comment You can just skip my review if it doesn't help you, rather than sniping. Who are you to judge others here for not being willing to share their identity? READ COMMENT

Isn't it funny how each doctor has his own specialty where they really excel. I know a doctor further up the peninsula who is the best at subcision for acne scars, and one in Beverley Hills best at laser acne scar removal. Sometimes... READ COMMENT

I just added his name. I wanted to make sure I was happy first, as I wanted my review to be completely frank. READ COMMENT

Hi Amazinga, Every doctor I spoke with (except two now) wanted to do fillers under the eyes also. I not sure if it's because it's harder to get right with fat (I've heard that)? For sure I wanted someone who did it a lot for that... READ COMMENT

I never noticed tightening on my face with exilis. (I did notice it a bit on my stomach). But I never let her do too much on my face for fear of fat loss there. I think it can work for fat loss in general. Unfortunately in my case,... READ COMMENT
