10 Years After BAD Arm Lipo, Doing the Arm Lift on Tuesday the 18th.

Fraxel I Liciously AMAZING @61 Years Old. - New York, NY

Prior to the laser, lidocaine was put on for one hr to the parts to be treated. While recovering from my first... READ MORE

Very Happy - New York

I had the new Thermage on my 59 year old neck and jawline just today. Dr Diane Madfes NYC who is an amazing cosmetic derm who worked with Dr Pat Wexler gave me something she KNOWS will work and it did already. I have noticed a tightening immediately with better results in time. Dr Madfes isn't one of the md's who push the latest fad lasers- i.e. Zerona etc but she had no doubts and... READ MORE
