I went to see Dr. Burroughs for cosmetic treatment without surgery. I am a 63 year old post menopausal woman with the common issues of sagging skin on the face and neck, dark spots, and an unsightly abdominal scar. I was made so comfortable my Dr. Burroughs and his professional staff, that I had multiple procedures, including FX body, Forma, Fracture, and a silk peel. I also had ThemiVia, which has made a huge difference in my vaginal health! I highly recommend this office for great results!

Dr. Burroughs is extremely skilled and has an awesome bedside manner with his patients!! I had both upper and lower eyelid lifts - I can now see better long distance (which is crucial as a semi driver!!) and my eyes are not nearly as dry as before!! He and his staff will do a phenomenal job for you!!!
