Best Option for Fat Pockets, Cellulite, and Saddlebags

I left the CoolSculpting clinic with sticker shock after quoting me their discounted rate of $10k to freeze away fat pockets on my belly and thighs only. I am 5'8" and weigh 135 lbs but have struggled to regain my pre-pregnancy body after birthing four 9 pound babies. After deciding that the cost was way to high for the risks and chance I might not even get the desired outcome, I recalled... READ MORE

Skin Looks 5 Years Older After Halo

I won a mommy makeover halo laser treatment from a local med spa that I have used several times in the past. It was valued at $1200. I didn't really know what to expect and unfortunately they did not prep me adequately. I'm anesthetician so I have a solid foundation about skincare and lasers but because this is a new procedure all of my information came from RealSelf prior to having it done.... READ MORE

39 and Needed Filler in my Cheeks for Smile Lines - Phoenix, AZ

I am 39 and have noticed significant aging due to exaggerated smile lines (not marionette or nasal fold lines). I was told by a prior injector that they couldn't be helped. My current injector threaded Juvaderm horizontally in my cheek area (1 syringe) and I absolutely love the result. I could stand one more syringe, but we decided to act conservatively to start. In 6 months, I will add... READ MORE

Perlane Vs. Restylane for Eye Hollows: So Far, So Good - Boone, NC

Naturally, I was very concerned about having injections under my eyes, but after 3 babies, and weight loss of 70lbs with each of them, the fat in my face had noticeably decreased and my eyes looked cadaverish. I live in a small area (Boone, NC) where Dr. Anagnos happens to practice and also happens to be a very reputable surgeon. He convinced me to go with Perlane under my eyes (2 syringes)... READ MORE

Is it safe to have Halo laser procedure 6 months after MOHS?

Six months ago I was diagnosed with skin cancer on my head and it was removed with MOHS surgery. I am not interested in having the halo laser procedure done on my face and... READ MORE

Is filler a good option to raise an indented scar on my forehead after MOHS and a scar revision? (photo)

I had MOHS surgery on my forehead approximately six months ago. The scar healed indented and so my dermatologist redid the surgery in an effort to improve the aesthetic and... READ MORE

You really need to do your research. This is just an uninformed/uneducated review. Machines can't do this job like the fascia blaster itself. I am confident that in a few years cool sculpting will be a thing of the past because it is... READ COMMENT

Yes, this was not meant for you. I have no idea why this posted to your business. It was meant for national laser Institute. I will try to resolve this with RealSelf. Sorry. READ COMMENT

Vitality Med Spa is the name. :) READ COMMENT

I had 1 syringe of Juvederm (which is a bit much). In the future, I would do half on top, half below--but I'm satisfied with my result and it doesn't look strange now. Will post a pic in a few more days when the swelling is completely... READ COMMENT

She was a Nurse Practitioner in N.C. She just said there wasn't a technique that could help it (that was 4 years ago). READ COMMENT
