Great Results. Done in Office With Local Anesthetic - Houston, TX

Dr. Livingston did vaser lipo on my neck and abdomen about 2 years ago and I am very happy with the results. The procedures where done in his office using a local anesthetic and there was almost no downtime. I did have to wear a garment for about a week but did not experience any pain or discomfort.

Interesting, Dr. F recommended the same thing for me, smoothbeam first, then Fraxel. I'm concerned after reading all the horror stories here about crescent shaped marks and burns, plus the poor reliability of the machine and that they... READ COMMENT

Mainly that my incissors were not even due to years of grinding. So even though my teeth were not crooked, the smile line was somewhat uneven, like a mountain range. I'll see if I can dig up a "before" picture. How do I edit my review... READ COMMENT
