Had some facial moles removed. Dr Michaels had incredible bedside manner and made me feel comfortable and at ease. The scars heals beautifully and I would return with any other concerns. I highly recommend Dr Michael.

My skin is radiant after receiving multiple IPL treatments. The fillers fixed the hollow looks beneath my eyes. I look younger and I didn't even have surgery!
