Wow, wow, wow! Where do I start with this amazing facility, staff and experience?! From when I scheduled my appointment on the phone to when I had a laser procedure done on a spider angioma right below my eye, I was so impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of the staff and the knowledge Dr. Annie Chiu and her team shared with me. I felt so welcomed, loved and wanted there! These are feelings I've never experienced (or thought I could experience) at a dermatology practice, and now I know I can. On top of this, the laser treatment did wonders on the spider angioma. It has only been one week since the treatment and it is almost gone! Highly recommend The Derm Institute!
Dr. Chiu is the absolute best injector around the south bay. She is very knowledgeable about which fillers to use on specific parts of your face. I have been going to her office for the past several years because I trust her judgment and skills. Recently, I made an appointment to correct the concavity of both of my temples. I am turning 50 years old and felt that my sunken temples made me look older than I would like. Dr. Chiu worked her magic and she filled in each of my temples to perfection! When I looked in the mirror immediately after my procedure I was so estatic that I teared up. My temples were now even with my cheek bone and forehead and most importantly it looked very natural. Days later, I am super happy and feel more confident about myself and I can wear a ponytail without feeling self conscious. Thank you, Dr. Chiu!
I strongly recommend Dr. Chiu. I met her when I lived in Hermosa Beach and absolutely loved her results and professionalism. I moved up to the LA area and have met many other top doctors like her, at the end, I decided to return to her last year. I drive down here to see her because she is totally worth it. She is extremely good at what she does and her staff is always sweet and willing to help in any way they can.
Background: I suffered from cystic acne for most of my twenties, and although I am now acne free, I am left not just with acne scarring but also emotional trauma. I did a lot of research before coming to Dr. Annie Chiu. In the past, when I had acne, I spent thousands on medispas that sold me procedures that did not work. I learned through my experiences to research the doctor and their treatment approach. I chose Dr. Chiu, not just because of her credentials (UC Berkeley/Stanford grad) but also because she was one of the few doctors in the OC and LA area that individualizes treatment based on acne scar type and approached treating acne scars with different modalities. <br><br>My experience: Dr. Chiu's office is heavily compliant with Covid19 regulations so I felt very safe, and the entire staff was friendly. Dr. Chiu was very thorough when examining my skin. What I appreciated was she gave me the time to explain what I wanted. She didn't try to push me with any procedures or treatments. We had a great discussion on my treatment plan and I ended up getting a TCA cross done for my ice pick scars. I will have to come back in a months time for additional treatments. She was very approachable and sweet and I'm very glad I chose Dr. Chiu. I will have to update my review with pictures once my skin heals.
As another reviewer mentioned below, I too have been going to Dr. Chiu since she was at Murad. She has been through it all with me. She has treated my acne, acne scarring, and keloid from a piercing. Because of the results, how METICULOUS she is, and her personality, I came back in for a visit all the way from the valley for a mole removal. To this day, I still leave her office feeling happy and better than I did when I entered it. She is knowledgable, graceful, and literally is a derm artist. Her staff are also really great. You can bet your bottom dollar that I'll be seeing her when my skin throws another curveball at me and when I'm ready for all sorts of fillers. I highly HIGHLY suggest going to her.
Dr. Chiu is THE Doctor you want to see for a chiseled jawline! That is the huge trend these days everyone loves so much and Dr, Chiu will make your jaw look sharp! She re creates the mandibular angle with perfection! She has an easy hand injecting. I never need numbing and hardly get bruised. Great work, great Doc!
Best Botox in the South Bay!
I think so many people are doing laser/skin care these days that have a network of professionals to recommend and trust. After the first visit I was excited to add her to the network. In the end, I personally would not recommend her. In my opinion she had good machines (updated etc,) so you will probably get decent results but she is just trying to make money and doesn’t care about the end result. I’m disappointed in the end result of an IPL. She did a decent job with the IPL, the machine works but missed some major spots on forehead. After the first appointment a follow up was scheduled in 4 weeks. At the follow up, there was pressure to do another full face IPL and clear and brilliant. After it was expressed that another $500+ service was not wanted she said she would fix the spots SHE missed for another $350. So the entire full face IPL ended up being $850.00. You can get great results with a doctor that will touch up for much less with the same or better results. She also said she was going to look for a skin care product for sensitive skin and would be right back to discuss it with me(since her $175 vitamin c pads caused a break out ) and never came back to the exam room.
After an injury, my back just hasn't been the same. Dr. Chiu suggested I try Emsculpt. I thought about it for a long time because the brochure only featured a guy with a six pack and that's not what I was going for. It only took one treatment to feel the change! I have stopped going to all my other workout classes for core strength. Thanks Dr. Chiu, you have changed my life.
Staff was rude and unprofessional . Paid cash for appt. as per quote and they called a few days later saying I was misquoted and owed more money. Never saw the results the doctor said I would. Disappointing all round.
I'm not the kind of person who writes a review but this time I had to. I went for a consultation about Emsculpt and I'm so happy I chose Dr. Chiu. She told me that Emsculpt wasn't going to give me the results I wanted (another office told me it would) and told me to do Coolsculpting instead. I am so happy with my results!
Dr. Chiu is a miracle worker. She is amazing with filler! She and her staff go above and beyond to make you happy and look great.
I drive all the way from Vegas to see Dr. Chiu and I am happy to do so. I only trust Dr. Chiu to do my botox and my facial fillers. Highly recommend!
Annie Chiu is the best cosmetic dermatologist!!! No botched Botox, no overselling. Once you receive treatment from her and see the results you’ll never want to go anywhere else. And, her staff is absolutely wonderful as well.
Love Dr. Chiue and staff! Dr.Chiue really knows how to treat any skin issues you might have. If you have any concerns about your skin, bring them to Dr.Chiue, she will find the perfect solution.
Dr Chui and her staff are the best! Wouldn’t trust my skin to anyone else.
Dr Chiu boosts your selfconfidence even before she does anything to you skin. I've struggled with my skin growing up and I still struggle with my confidence about my skin. But when Dr. Chiu tells you that you have beautiful skin, you believe it!! She's helped me improve it even more! Who knew at 34 I would have better skin than I did at 14?
Annie really is the best in Botox. She provides the perfect balance to leave you with a natural, yet refreshed & younger look. So glad I found her!
I recently had my first visit with Dr. Chiu for lip filler on a recommendation from a coworker and I'm so glad I did. This wasn't my first time getting lip filler so I knew what I was in for...at least I thought I did. I normally get one syringe of Volbella and she told me she could give me the same results with half a syringe! Guess what? She did! Thanks, Dr. Chiu!
My family and I have known Dr. Chiu since she was with Murad, and we have continued to use her services as she does amazing work! Both my sisters and brother are under her care and now my Fiancé is being taken care of. She is worth every penny and she is truly a genuine person. Her staff always greets us with nice smiles and they make us feel welcomed all the time. They are always upfront with the pricing and they also always look around for the best deals out there as we all know that the medical field here in the U.S. is very pricey. Thank you Dr. Chiu for continuing to do an amazing job!
