Only 2 months later I saw a plastic surgeon who injected Belotero and said he didn't see any trace of the Artefill! The Belotero did a much better job and it was MUCH cheaper! Also needed to have Juvederm... READ MORE

Wanted This for Syringiomas Under my Eyes, Did Nothing for Syringiomas and Pigmented my Face!

I had an erbium laser done under my eyes and it worked fairly well but my bumps returned quickly (had that done twice) and I was told that the fractional C02 laser was the best treatment for this skin problem, so I went to a nearby place that offered it. They did my whole face, which honestly I didn't ask for and wasn't expecting, I only wanted the treatment under my eyes, but I thought if it... READ MORE

Smart Lipo of Upper and Lower Abs 41 Year Old Woman - The Woodlands, TX

For now I have only marked the "worth it" question as "Not sure" because its too early to see the final results; however, I strongly feel that after the recovery period, when the swelling has finally subsided, I will definitely feel the procedure was worth it! I have a lot of loose skin and fat that doesn't budge through exercise and diet. I had considered a tummy tuck, but ultimately... READ MORE

Wow, I am so sorry your results are SO bad! That's awful! I'm not thrilled either, but I can't say I am worse than I was to begin with, I just don't see much difference. I have a small lump left and I didn't do flanks (she wanted to... READ COMMENT
