Latisse Changed my Eyes- Permanent Fat Loss - Massachusetts

I'm 34 years old and started using Latisse about a year ago to have thicker lashes and brows. The results were great for lashes and brows after a few weeks only. I noticed a few weeks into it that my brow bone became more prominent and I felt it more. I didn't really see that as an issue though as I loved the results. I used it for 6 months when I noticed my eyes had an odd tired look in... READ MORE

Not Worth It at All

I decided to have a Vi peel to address hormonal acne, minor acne scarring and anti-aging in general. I've had glycolic peels and other procedures and wasn't really worried that I would have a bad outcome, especially given all of the glowing reviews of this peel. Boy was I wrong. It was a complete waste of money and I feel it somehow messed up my skin for the worse. I generally have pretty good... READ MORE

Never Again....... - Boston, MA

I bought a package of ematrix at a medspa and they offered me a complimentary upgrade to their new Palomar 1540 laser due to a customer service issue. (I listed 250 as price as that was price to upgrade from cheeks only to full face). Big mistake. I had good results with ematrix and should have left well enough alone. It has made my entire face breakout everywhere. It's not the post treatment... READ MORE

Very Happy So Far! American Laser Skincare - Boston, MA

I've had some acne scars on my right cheek ever since I had very bad acne in my teens. I took 3 full courses of Accutane and my skin gets a few break outs here and there, but has been tremendously improved since I was about 19 and took the first course of Accutane (I'm currently 33). My main issue is a few of the lingering scars (not sure which type they are). About 5 years ago I had a few... READ MORE

Nerve Pain After Coolsculpting - Boston, MA

I had Coolsculpting done on my lower abdomen 5/7/2014. I'm a size 4, 135 lbs and I always seem to have a little extra weight in my lower stomach, especially after I had my son 2 years ago. The procedure itself was pretty painless except for when they initially suck the skin into the machine. It hurt more than I expected, but it was only for a few seconds. Your stomach gets numb and as... READ MORE

Questions from Chasethedream

How do you treat facial burn from Glycolic peel? (photos)

I got a Vivite glycolic peel (70%) yesterday. I also use Retin-A sporadically for acne (a few times a week). I had put Retin-A on my face the day before the peel, but I really... READ MORE

Which treatment is more effective for Acne Scars, Ematrix or Icon 1540? (photo)

I recently purchased an Ematrix package (7 treatments) to help with acne scars. The medspa is now encouraging me to upgrade to their new equipment, an Icon 1540, for a modest... READ MORE

Non surgical nose job after septorhinoplasty? I was wondering if filler could be used to raise the tip slightly? (Photo)

Hi there, I had a septorhinoplasty 15 years ago and was so pleased with the results. It was life changing to be honest. I have noticed recently my tip seems to have dropped a... READ MORE

4th course of Accutane?

I took my first course of Accutane at 19 and it was tremendously improved. Life changing to say the least. It seemed to come back again 3-4 yrs later and I took another full... READ MORE

Hair loss due to spironolactone or IUD?

I started spironolactone about 3 weeks ago for hormonal acne. 2 weeks ago I got a Mirena IUD. I noticed 1 week later my hair started to feel much thinner. My doctor had assured... READ MORE

Hate Radiesse results. Have you seen any trends in patients who had it dissolve quickly? (Photo)

I had Radiesse injected in my cheeks 15 months ago. Admittedly, I didn't do enough research on the dr. The filler has distorted my face when I smile & makes it wider. I feel it... READ MORE

Just to confirm, the first pic is December of 2014 before I started using Latisse. I started Latisse around 1/2015 and ended 7/2015 with 6 months of use. The second pic is 12/2015, so about 5 months after stopping Latisse. It's now been... READ COMMENT

I was just wondering if anyone has suggestions on how to improve the situation with fat loss, please let me know. Thank you! READ COMMENT

Hi Rominas, I can't comment on whether skin color changes went back to normal as I didn't have any to begin with fortunately. READ COMMENT

I'm so sorry you're dealing with that. I hope you have a good recovery and you should definitely seek a consult with another plastic surgeon not affiliated with where you had the injections done. I once had my lips improperly injected... READ COMMENT

Kitty, I wonder if your eye shape has somethings to do with it. I have hooded eyes so my eyelids were always touching where the Latisse was placed in the eyelash. That's just how hooded eyes are I guess. I see some people with different... READ COMMENT
