"I went in for a consult and was sold on laser hair removal for my underarms. Dr. Tumbaga and her team are amazing. They made me feel right at home and at ease with all of the info."- M.G. / Yelp / Feb 22, 2022
"I am so happy tonight! I have been lethargic & basically, felt cruddy since Christmas. I tried to get into 2 of my doctor’s offices & couldn’t. A friend told me about IV treatments, so I started doing some research. This office is amazing! I came in weak & tired. I was met with a PA who sat with me as I did my paper work!! After an IV treatment & B12 shot, I feel like a new woman. The doctor actually came in & talked to me about my issues - and, she was the one who took my IV out & gave me advice! WOW! I’ve had 4 children & a doctor has never took my IV out! I felt so taken care of. I highly recommend this office!"- L.T. / Yelp / Feb 02, 2022
"Dr. Tumbaga was amazing as were all the assistants. They made the experience extremely comfortable. Dr. Tumbaga would stop at points to check in with me so I could see how things were going and confirm it was what I was looking for. Lip fillers came out exactly how I wanted. I will definitely be back."- J.G. / Google / Jan 25, 2022

"I was desperate when I got here. Due to complications of medical botox for migraine, I had severe ptosis. One eye looked like I was terrified and the other looked like I was sleeping. I had visual impairment and the last thing I wanted to do was botox. From the first phone call, to intake to meeting Dr. Timbaland, I was amazed. The anxiety I was experiencing dropped several notices and within days, I feel human. Every single staff person I met there has been extraordinary. I love this olace!"- G.G. / Google / Nov 28, 2021
What causes lesions and warts?
Lesions are typically caused by some form of trauma. This can include a cut, scrape, bruise, or burn. Other causes can include age, infection, or autoimmune disease. Warts are normally the result of the human papillomavirus (HPV) that causes rapid cell growth on the outer layer of the skin. Patients may have rough or raised skin as a result. Both lesions and warts can be addressed with help from a laser treatment, but it's important to get an assessment from a professional before moving forward.
