Hi Brittney, I looooove the effects of the micro needling. My skin has improved tremendously and even the chicken pox scar on my forehead looks a little better. Absolutely amazing. Thank you again so much for recommending this treatment. Best thing EVER!!! 💁👩🏼

“The Smartlipo was the best decision I made this year!  My awful  thighs and muffin tops are gone.  Importantly I chose  Dr. Bridges because he is a board certified plastic surgeon with 25 years experience and he has an excellent reputation.  His staff and wife could not have been kinder.  Dr. Bridges is such a kind soul and excellent plastic surgeon.  Thank you!”
