Voluma for Volume Loss and Undereye Bags

I had botox about a month ago, and am pleased with the reduction of wrinkles on forehead and next to eyes (my resting b*tch face went from a 9 to a 4). When I first visited Skin RN I told Christy I wanted a plan I could work through in the next few months to improve the areas with which I am the most concerned. She was more than happy to help me work on a plan that fit my needs and my budget.... READ MORE

Botox - First Injectables in Journey to Best Me - Nashville, TN

Last year I lost about 60 lbs (yay me!). One of the unexpected side effects of weight loss was how much the slimming aged my face. I decided to spend the last quarter of this year getting my look refreshed with fillers, micro needling and other non-invasive work. A few days before my birthday I decided to bite the bullet and called to see if a local medspa that got great reviews had any... READ MORE

Evening Up Lashes, Filling in Brows

I ordered Latisse online, and received it in mid-October. I started using it in 21 October. I got it primarily for my brows, as I am hypothyroid, and outer brow loss is a common side effect of this disorder. I have never plucked my brows beyond a few strays between brows. I then thought, well, I might as well try it on my lashes too. I'm overall pretty happy with my lashes, but wanted to see... READ MORE

Very Happy with ZOOM! Whitening - Nashville, TN

Pros: Amazing, beautifully white teeth really fast. Cons: Can experience a couple of days of discomfort after (zingers). I had ZOOM! whitening treatment in 2010 and loved the results, which have been kept up pretty well by using the Nite White product for regular touch-ups. I had a second round of Zoom! this year as I noticed that though my teeth were still white, they were not as white near... READ MORE

Is there a non-surgical (i.e., laser, topical or inject-able) solution to my signs of aging? (photos)

I am 43 years old , British. Recently 3 people have asked if I'm early 50s. I have a lot of hyper-pigmentation from taking levothyroxin for a few years before being aware of... READ MORE

Undereye bags: is it too late for fillers and tightening - time for blepharoplasty? (Photo)

I will be 45 in a few weeks, and have had undereye bags to some degree since my early 20s. I suffer from allergies and have hypothyroid (on Synthroid). Are my eye bags too... READ MORE

Combining Treatments?

I have had dermabrasion in the past but am thinking of trying micro needling for my hyperpigmentation. I think I would also like to try some injectables (maybe lips, marionette... READ MORE

Thanks, BlueEyes, that helps. And thanks, too - I also thought my cheeks looked really good, and thought her using the younger photo of me as a guide worked really well! I had heard about Restylane, but I have seen Juvederm (not... READ COMMENT

Thanks - I'll be on the lookout for that. I had a LOT of facial volume when I was younger in the cheek area, and this result is not even close to what I had naturally then. This was all the Voluma application we are using. I plan to do... READ COMMENT

Under eye bags (herniated fat, hereditary, and present since I was in my early 20s) are a significant concern for me. This is an area I plan to address, however, I am taking my improvements in stages to fit my lifestyle and budget. If... READ COMMENT

Thanks so much! I actually have glycolic peels in my plan as well. I have had them before and really like them! READ COMMENT

Yes I am doing Voluma to cheeks/fill under eye bags. Then I will do Juvederm to marionette lines, followed later by a series of microneedling sessions. READ COMMENT
