Opened my eyes!

My family has a tendency towards heavy brows and lids (i.e. basset hound) which I have inherited. I have aunts and uncles who had blephs, but I am younger and I didn't want to have surgery quite yet, so I explored other options over the past few years (ie acupuncture and ulthera). However, these treatments really did nothing to resolve the issue in any way and I truly wish I would have not... READ MORE

It Worked for Me - Portland, OR

I have to say right off the bat I am a big fan of acupuncture, so the idea of having needles stuck in my face is not the least bit daunting. I would guess that not everyone feels the same about acupuncture. My first series -- I did the entire series of 12 treatments -- was pretty awesome. I did it a few years ago and have since tried a few other things (as you can see from my reviews) so... READ MORE

Ulthera on Lower Face - Portland, OR

This is actually my second treatment. My first treatment three months ago (brows) made me feel like I was going to crawl out of my skin with pain. Not kidding. It was soooo painful despite the threads I have read saying that it doesn't hurt at all. Knowing what it felt like helped me discuss pain options with the clinic this time.

What is the Difference Between Ulthera and Harmony®XL (Laser 360)?

I tried Ulthera but really didn't see any change at all, although I am nowhere near the age or need for a facelift. I recently heard about the Laser 360. Does it prove more... READ MORE

I am so sad to read these comments...I was looking for reviews on sculptra and found this thread. That said, I was wondering if the OP had ever tried any sort of laser skin treatment? I had filler on my face and later purchased a... READ COMMENT

Lady, you look just great! I just saw your other review about Venus Freeze (which led me here), and your results are stunning. Plus, you just look so very happy. : ) Congrats on a great result! READ COMMENT

Thanks so much for posting your pics and reviews. I have a similar concern in my face and jowls, and I think that I am following the same route as you are. : ) READ COMMENT

I just found this thread. I had my first Venus Freeze treatment today. Much, much less painful than Ulthera (which did NOTHING FOR ME). I wonder about some of these treatments...they look great for a few months, but then skin laxity... READ COMMENT
