"When you first walk into Dr. Myint's office you are greeted by soothing music, an attentive concierge, and an overall sense of warmth that I have yet to feel at other cosmetic practices. The lobby area is very intimate and foreshadows the entire experience. I have been going to Dr. Myint for voluma filler injections and each time I go he and his staff really go the extra mile to ensure my comfort is their #1 priority. Please see Dr. Myint if you want to experience the skill and attentiveness that every establishment should have!"
"Wow! One of the best doctors I have ever had. He is caring and more than competent, and his staff is incredibly friendly and caring as well. I have seen some of doctor Myint's work and it is nothing short of a miracle. I have also had a few minor procedures done. I am more than pleased with the results. I had injections in my face and micro-needling. My results were incredible and so natural looking that people have been telling me how good I look, even though they can't quite "put their finger on it as to why." I'm the world's worst patient, terrified of needles and doctors, but felt completely safe in the hands of Dr. Myint and his staff. Both procedures were relatively painless, particularly the micro-needling, and I intend to have them performed on a regular and as-needed basis- but only if Dr. Myint performs them. I am extremely picky when it comes to my health care providers and Dr. Myint surpasses my expectations by far. I highly recommend him."
"I am a little more than 2 weeks post op for a brow lift done by Dr Myint. I am thrilled. I was out and about 4 days after surgery with some slight bruising around my eyes, but easily covered with light makeup. This surpassed my expectations. Dr Myint is professional, personable and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend him and his staff."
"I was referred to Dr Myint after one of my friends had her lips done and they looked so natural I didn't even know. I wanted to fix a few small things here and there , nothing crazy and I didn't want to have the "had my lips done " look. Dr Myint went over everything and showed me before we did the injections. I was so nervous. But there was minimum to no pain and he kept it modest just how I wanted! I love them so much! They're just what I envisioned and the healing was super quick. He really takes the time with you and gets it right!"
"Dr. Myint and his staff are absolutely impeccable. I was referred to him for an issue with my eyelid. As the universe would have it, not only was I referred to him by my eye care specialist but also a friend who happened to know of a specialist in Vegas who was highly certified and respected for eye surgeries. Dr. Myint corrected my ptosis and was very patient with me throughout the process. Believe me...I'm a big question-asker and even under local, I was a big blabbermouth full of questions. Now, I see Dr. Myint for Botox, Pelleve, and other facial/skin-related issues to keep this old crinkly 40 year old looking youthful. He hasn't disappointed thus far. He has a gentle hand, a kind heart, a wonderful staff and I look forward to all that they can teach me in years to come. They are truly to be trusted. :))"
