Yes! I Have Eyebrows Again! Microblading is a Great Invention - Newington, CT

My sister got microblading done. I had never heard of it. But I had over plucked my eyebrows in the 90s and they were just too thin. I would pencil in, but that would just fill them, not change shape or size. I didn't want tattoo eyebrows because it didn't look natural. But after I saw my sisters I loved it. You couldn't even tell it wasn't hair. So I made an appointment ASAP. I just did it... READ MORE

Getting InMan Aligner - Willimantic, CT

I had braces as an adult already. But I didn't eat my retainer and my front teeth have moved. Most noticeably my front bottom teeth. The Inman Aligner is like a retainer and Invisalign but only for the front teeth. It's a re-treatment for people who have had braces with some relapse. I'm excited to correct my teeth again and I will be wearing my retainer always after this treatment. It's... READ MORE

Hurts, but Worth It! - Willimantic, CT

I had crooked teeth my while life.'mostly the gap between my top from teeth bothered me. Treatment was about 1 1/2 years with bi-weekly to monthly visits. Happy with results; teeth were perfect. I didn't eat my retainer so my teeth have moved some & I want to go back for re-treatment. I had wire braces done; but if I do revision since it's only slight, I want Invisalign. READ MORE

Best Ever Too See After Being "Blind" - New York, NY

I had bad vision since I was 10. So bad, by the time I was 28 I couldn't see the largest "E" on the vision chart. (Vision was 300/20) My corneas were too thin so they chose PRK surgery (similar to LASIK") The procedure itself lasted about 10 minutes MAYBE! Nothing hurt during. All I saw during the procedure was green and red lights and darkness. I could immediately see clearer after. They... READ MORE

Regular Botox User for 1 Year - Stonington, CT

I started getting Botox in January 2015. I've gone every three months. I am 32 years old with wrinkles only hardly starting to show and I wanted it to be more preventative. I've gotten it in my forehead every time. I've loved the results all year long and will keep doing it as long as I can. It is very quick and no pain. (I can only think it feels like popping a pimple on some parts of the... READ MORE
