Definitely Not Worth It! - Seattle, WA

I had a cosmetic mole removal done in Seattle, Washington. I went in to have the mole looked at because I was concerned with some irritation I was experiencing off and on and they enthusiastically said many times "there's nothing wrong with it medically, but we can remove it!" "let us get you the information about having that removed." Honestly, at the time I wasn't even really thinking of... READ MORE

VI Peel Caused Hyperpigmentation - Montana

I had the VI peel done 2.5 weeks ago. It was definitely not worth it. My skin broke out badly and still is working on clearing up. I could've dealt with that because it's temporary, but I've also developed hyperpigmentation above my lip, all across the lip like a mustache. Now, I'm having to purchase an expensive 4% hydroquinone cream to add to my arsenal of products and I'm terrified of... READ MORE

Skintyte, BBL, and Ultra A (Retin-A) for Acne Scar - Montana

Hi Losingtoday - thank you, it is hard to have a good attitude. Some days are better than others, but I just keep trying to be positive and hopeful that after several scar treatments we will get to a place where I feel more comfortable... READ COMMENT

Hi - a dermatologist did this and it was biopsied. READ COMMENT

I actually have had microneedling on some light facial scaring I had from picking at blemishes in the past. The scarring was very minor and nothing like the indentation from the mole removal, but it did help a ton! The scarring that... READ COMMENT

Hi there, I am so sorry. It is seriously terrible and I regret every day that I went through with it. I can cover it with makeup ok sometimes, but it really sucks to be self conscious about it all the time and also I don't like... READ COMMENT

Hi there, I agree it seems like all too often doctors only focus on the positive outcomes and don't prepare you enough for the risks. My doctor has actually been really good since I went back in and is providing free cosmetic... READ COMMENT
