Ultherapy Maiden Voyage- Great Experience - Solana Beach, CA

After a year of deliberation and saving up, I finally had Ultherapy at Art of Skin M.D. The appointment lasted approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes, including check in, pictures, medication and the actual procedure. I opted to have the upper and lower face, as well as my neck. My provider had a promotion, and the neck was included at no extra charge for a very limited time. Although I... READ MORE

Resurfx Treatment - Solana Beach, CA

I had my Resurfx performed in combination with an IPL, which I reviewed separately. My Resurfx was done immediately after my IPL, and took approximately 15 minutes, tops. I had already been given numbing cream prior to the IPL, so my face was still numb. Just as with the IPL, I had virtually no discomfort. I could feel it, but it truly did not hurt. After this was completed, an Rx cream was... READ MORE

I was born with a tired/mad face that I inherited from many generations of women in my family, and it has gotten worse with volume loss. (Doc said people refer to this as "resting b*tch face" which is so very apt.) I was... READ MORE

Thank you for sharing, as I am also considering this treatment down the road. I appreciate the input. READ COMMENT

As an update to the above post, I believe I actually had 2 vials of each, not 2 syringes. I think 2 vials is about 5 syringes, but I am still learning. Sorry if I confused anyone. READ COMMENT

Hi, glad you liked your Voluma and Juvederm. I was super scared about the Sculptra, but actually it went even better. I had 2 vials, which equalled 5 syringes. I seriously thought that was going to be way too much, but they talked me... READ COMMENT
