Dr. Michael Gold: Any time you're doing any cosmetic procedure, you want to make sure that doctor has the skill set, has the experience; the knowledge base. We're dermatologists, so we like to think that he should be a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon working with your patients and your staff to give them the optimal treatments.

When I deal with Real Self and I answer questions, most every answer says the same thing: Make sure you're dealing with somebody who has the skill set because there are a lot of people doing these procedures and that's fine, but it's buyer beware. We're trained in this and we teach this, so this is what... you should be looking for somebody who knows what they're doing and knows how to do it the right way.
