a life saver - Beverly Hills, CA

I had a horrible reaction to the facial filler, Voluma and my initial doctor dismissed my concerns which resulted in a serious infection. He didn't know what to do and advised me to find a doctor who had experience with complications. I won't go into that since it is another story but I was very scared and now had to navigate through this alone. I found Dr. Lee who immediately fit me into her... READ MORE

Don't tell your patient you don't know what to do and to find someone else - Beverly Hills, CA

The $2200 reflects one syringe of Voluma $900-950 and 2 of Restylane. I went to Dr. Stevens 2/19 of this year for Botox & Restylane injections for my lines & dark circles. I had Restylane once before, about a year ago & it helped. He suggested Voluma for my cheeks since I have a thin face & said I would love it & lasted 2 years. He injected 1 syringe along with1 of Restylane. I had to go back... READ MORE

It has been well over a year and thankfully, I found a doctor who does care and took my case when no one wanted someone else's mistake. I will be grateful to her forever but I will need fillers just to even everything out every 8... READ COMMENT

I am so sorry, it has been over a year for me and found a doctor who took my case since mine bailed on me because he didn't know what to do and didn't listen. My infection was horrible and I will need to keep injecting filler to even... READ COMMENT

I had a red lump and the redness spread down my cheeks but was a much deeper color under my eyes, like a crescent shape. It was horrible and although the red is gone, I am left with a permanent lump and sagging skin. READ COMMENT
