Please add to list of GOOD doctors/derms/aestheticians etc..

LOVE mentioned that the regular docs (like Dr Chu and Rappaport) often get mentioned here ... I think this would be a great place for people to share information about who performed their procedures and what kind of results were achieved.

Please list:

1. Name of Doc/aesthetician/beautician/make-up-artist/tatooer etc..

2. Location and contact details

3. Procedures performed

4. Results? What happened.

5. How much you were charged

Please share - thanks!

OK, I'll start!

Dr Tony Chu - derm/surgeon, specialising in acne and acne scars.

Hammersmith Hospital, Du Cane Road, London, UK

Appointments office: 020 838 5000

he buy 3 get 1 free 2oz Camellia oil

You will need a referal from your GP. NHS is available (not for Isolagen)

Performs: Punch excisions, subcision, NLite, Isolagen.

I've had subcision, NLite and excision - the excisions were better for my type of scarring (pits), subcision helped a little, I can't say I saw results from NLite though.

Very nice and understanding doc, as good as you can get in the UK, and his staff are extremely pleasant.

Miserable: I have had numerous punch excisions done by Dr. George Hruza in St. Louis. He has a Website at www.lasersurgeryUSA.com. His phone number is (314) 878-3839. I don't know what his expertise is with dark skinned people. I have generally been pleased with the results of my procedures, although a few didn't turn out as I hoped. I knew the risks going in. If he can't help, maybe he can refer you to someone.

Doctor James Romano in San Francisco is an incredible plastic surgeon. I had artecoll done by him, but is really useless for my type of scars

( boxcars). But his assistant Kirsten performed the TCA Cross treatment to a few of my scars. I have had 2 treatments so far, with 50% improvement. $275 per treatment.

Good Luck,

James
