Permanent Eyebrows - Toronto, ON

I've always had great brows. They're thick and bushy but my real issue is that they grow like weeds and reshaping them was always a hassle when they started growing so fast and out of control.

Currently in Braces After a Year - Brampton, ON

I had a 5 mm overjet and a tooth on top that stuck out from the rest. Also my lower teeth were slightly crowded, although they didn't really bother me.

RF needling (radio frequency) is a tiny needle that gets a bit of an electric current run through it. I guess dermatologists call it electro-cautery where it actually will burn a bit. The needle dries out the surrounding area and draws... READ COMMENT

Oh! I didn't even think of that. Thanks for the suggestion. READ COMMENT

I just posted an update. Thanks for your comment! I hope your scar revision went well!! READ COMMENT

And yes, I still use silicone sheets during the day to protect it from the sun and to mask the redness. Occasionally I will just use SPF with really dense concealer. READ COMMENT

Aside from having the leftover suture beneath the skin and a small bump on one end of the scar, I'm quite happy with it. There is still a lot of redness due to extra blood supply healing the area. The scar itself is flat and thin. It... READ COMMENT
