Dear Dr. Lam, It is an honor to talk with you. I appreciate that you are a sincere and dedicated doctor with wonderful bedside manners. I can tell without actually meeting you inperson. You offer this platform and it is truly helping all of us. I applaud you.
I'm hoping to be a great candidate for an undereye filler and other facial area fillers. I will be seeing you later this month. I need to know if a client could have a VI peel on the same day as the fillers? And also, what is your opinion on the VI peel? Thank you so much for your time and expertise. I'm really looking forward to being your client and looking GREAT!
Hi, I really had not heard of the VI Peel. There are a million peels out there. I visited their site and I still have no idea what it is exactly. Suffice it to say, I don't think it is a great idea to have a peel the same day as my fillers, especially not right before because I will not be able to read the volumes due to any swelling there. If you absolutely had to have it right after my fillers perhaps that would be okay, but I strongly discourage it for at least a week but again I have no idea what this peel is.
Dear Dr. Lam, Thank you so very much for the immediate response. I appreciate your thoughtfulness. The VI Peel is a combination of several peels and vitamins. It tackles skin problems at the cellular level, rather than just burning skin off. My interest is to help with my very fine wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and acne. If I do get the VI Peel done I will wait a couple of weeks or longer upon your reccommendation after you do your expertise on my face. Dr Lam I respect and honor your opinion. I look forward to my consultation and treatment with you at the end of the month. Thank you again. Have a wonderful day.
Dear Dr. Lam, I'm looking froward to seeing you at the end of the month. Time is moving fast and I'm excited. I'm writing you again because I hope their won't be an issue receiving Radiesse or another filler even though I have cheek implants. I've had them for over 5 years and haven't had any problems with them. I also have Gortex in my laugh lines. I've had them for years too.
I'm missing that luminous and I think you said in your lecture non transitional appearance. That heart lift of the face that goes to the eyes of a youthful face vs to the jowls of the older face. You did a mother and daughter comparison. I enjoyed your lecture, because you offered an intelligent perception to the forehead area and not to be so quick to say one reuires a forehead lift. And also how you use fillers with great satisfaction for yourself as well as the client.
I don't think there will be a problem with me having the implants. I'm confident you can work around them and maintain a soft and natural appearance. Giving me that luminousity and even flow of eye to cheek smoothness and transition.
