Meh.. - San Francisco, CA

I got botox for the wrinkles in my forehead. I have a ginormous forehead and have had lines there since I was a kid. Its been 3 days since I got the botox. My forehead has taken on a plastic-like appearance. Its definitely less wrinkly.. but in a weird kind of way.. hard to explain. I don't hate the results, but not sure I would do it again. I think I'll stick with fillers and laser resurfacing. READ MORE

Subtle Restoration of Fullness in the Face - San Francisco, CA

No one seemed to noticed, not my super... READ MORE

My lashes to begin with were non existent almost. Thin,... READ MORE

I tried it for two days back to back the first week and started peeling pretty badly. I took a break for a week and will probably start using it once or twice a week going forward. I've already noticed a change in the texture of my... READ MORE

The pain afterwards was minimal. The numbing solution did a pretty great job of handling any pain after the procedure. READ COMMENT

Pretty much once a week from the start. I feel like im still going through an adjustment. yes, definitely flaking. Not really any redness though. My skin has never been prone to redness though. I would recommend using sparingly in the... READ COMMENT

Still love retin A although im using about once a week still. My skin continues to peel a lot with use, so its a little bit more maintenance with exfoliation and extra sunscreen. I'll probably use sporatically when my skin looks dull... READ COMMENT

My dermatologist did not recommend it. I was worried using an exfoliant would irritate my skin, but I didn't really know what else to do. I didn't feel comfortable going to work the way I looked. My skin was peeling off in sheets and... READ COMMENT
