Happy I Did It - but Don't Expect Miracles

I had a lower eyelid bleth a little over six months ago. I did research on the surgery for about 8 months to get all the info I could and to make sure I really really wanted to go thru with it. I picked a very good doctor (one who had been chosen a few years prior to do Extreme Makeover),... READ MORE

I did have the "11" between my eyebrows. - Worth Every Penny - Castle Rock, CO

I have been getting Botox injections for just over a year now. Although I have very few wrinkles, I did have the "11" between my eyebrows....the noticeable frown lines that so many people get. Botox was the first treatment that I experimented with - and of all the things I have had done, it is... READ MORE

Love the results.....prefer liquid lift to surgery

I started getting Juvederm injections about a year ago. I was 39 at the time, and did not have very deep nasolabial lines, but they were noticable and I wanted to prevent them from becoming deeper. My first injection was done in February, 2007. The dr. used only one syringe on both side of... READ MORE

Loved the Results - Just Too Damn Expensive to Keep It Up!!

I was a sun worshipper, and as a result developed a very uneven skin tone, small broken blood vessels around my nose and upper cheeks, large pores, etc. My dermatologist suggested IPL and agreed to do it in my affected areas only (instead of the entire face) to keep the cost down ($150 per...

Selphyl Under my Eyes! - Phoenix, AZ

Though I've been getting injections of filler all over my face for about 5 years, I never put anything under the eye because of the risk of bruising and lumpiness due to the thin skin. I'm an aesthetician, and did some research on Selphyl and was intrigued by the stem cell/regenerative... READ MORE

I am 44 and have been investing heavily in my face/skin for the last 5 years. Botox, filler, Retin-A, microcurrent and good at home skin care.

Palovia...here We Go!

Just bought the Palovia at home laser device! WooHoo! I'm a certified laser technician and have had laser treatments done on my face, but of course never in the sensitive under eye area. I am very interested to see if this at home device is going to work. Since the company states that... READ MORE

Good Value in the Hands of an Experienced Injector! -Castle Rock, CO

I'm a medical asst/ clinical aesthetician for a med spa and have been getting injections for 5 yrs. After 4 years of using only hyaluronic based fillers which metabolized quickly from my face a year and a half ago I decided to bite the bullet and try Radiesse, even though there are so many mixed...

Does Voluma Last? - Castle Rock, CO

I have been using Juvederm for years and decided to try Voluma because of its supposed superior lifting ability and long lasting benefits. I was injected with 2cc of filler early January. After the initial swelling went down the result was less dramatic than expected so I returned 30 days later... READ MORE

Endotine Mid Face Lift - Cary, NC

Though I have been able to delay aging the last 8 years with the use of botox, fillers and various laser treatments my cheeks and jawline continued to sag and show my age. I was told that since I had minimal aging in my neck, and not much loose skin I was not really a good candidate for a... READ MORE

What's the matter with price shopping ? If a client is going in for services and looking to drop $1,000 plus why wouldn't they shop prices ? Sound like an overpriced office you went to that just doesn't want to be price competitive READ COMMENT
