Editorial review from Citysearch 8/8/2013

Kym highly recommended The Skin Center and introduced me to Nellie for Botox and Filler. Kym was reassuring and very friendly. Nellie was amazing. She was very skilled and demonstrated a natural artistry in her approach. I was apprehensive at first but Kym stayed with me during the procedures and Nellie was very patient and a consummate professional. The results far exceeded my expectations. I have made friends with the mirror again. Why did I wait so long? more

I have been going to Nellie at the Skin Center for botox injections. She is wonderful to work with. Very professional, pleasant, and never tries to sell you something you don't need. I highly recommend Nellie and the Skin Center! more

Malpractice suit 3/25/2012

Dr. Dominic A. Brandy was SUED for malpractice and the jury awarded $400,000 in this case. Here are news articles about the case: community.seattletimes.nwsource.cmo/archive/?date=19960915&slug=2349352 [replace “cmo” with “com” to access link] deseretnews.cmo/article/514377/HAIR-DOCTOR-HAS-A-BRUSH-WITH-THE-LAW. [replace “cmo” with “com” to access link and add html to end] From Desertnews website: HAIR DOCTOR HAS A BRUSH WITH THE LAW By Jon Schmitz, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Published: Friday, Sept. 20 1996 12:00 a.m. MDT Summary A jury has awarded $400,000 to a man who said a series of botched hair restoration treatments drove him to attempt suicide. Michael Potkul, 33, said he was left disfigured and despondent after five surgical procedures by Dr. Dominic Brandy, a Pittsburgh hair-restoration specialist. A jury has awarded $400,000 to a man who said a series of botched hair restoration treatments drove him to attempt suicide. Michael Potkul, 33, said he was left disfigured and despondent after five surgical procedures by Dr. Dominic Brandy, a Pittsburgh hair-restoration specialist.After a five-day trial before Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Gene Strassburger, the jury concluded Wednesday that Brandy was negligent and failed to deliver the results he had promised to Pot-kul. With other court charges, the award is likely to exceed $500,000, said Jon Perry, Potkul's attorney. ""We're very pleased,"" he said. ""We were fortunate to have a bright judge and a bright, compassionate jury."" Potkul, of Uniontown, wore a hairpiece during the trial and was clearly uneasy about removing it to show jurors his scarred scalp. Brandy and his attorney, Korry Greene, said they were disappointed but had not decided whether to appeal. Brandy said it was the first court judgment against him in a 16-year career that included 10,000 cases. Brandy faces other litigation. He is a defendant in five other medical malpractice cases pending in Common Pleas Court. Potkul testified that he became obsessed about hair loss that began when he was 27. He tried Rogaine, hair plugs and a hairpiece before turning to Brandy after seeing him on a TV talk show. In March 1992, after five surgeries that cost more than $15,000 and left him scarred, he drove to Maryland and shot himself in the chest with a .357-caliber Magnum pistol. He was hospitalized for three weeks and had continued psychiatric care. Juror Alan Forester said the panel had little difficulty in concluding that Brandy was negligent. ""(Potkul) was promised something - a full head of hair - and it didn't happen,"" Forester said. Forester said the jury's principal difficulty in its four hours of deliberations was arriving at a damage figure. He said the panel decided to award slightly more than the $350,000 in past and future medical expenses Potkul had claimed. Forester said jurors believed that Potkul was partly to blame for his woes, saying he did not educate himself adequately about the procedures. In its verdict, the jury attributed 70 percent of the negligence to Brandy and 30 percent to Potkul. But the finding did not reduce the damage award because the jury also concluded that Brandy had made - and breached - a warranty to restore Potkul's hair. ""It's not over for Mike,"" Perry said about Potkul during closing arguments. ""It's never going to be over for that poor man. People are going to point at Mike. He's the guy who tried to kill himself because of his hair."" more

The Best 12/21/2011

I love Bridget at The Skin Center in Shadyside. She is warm, welcoming and kind. She is informed, safe, gentle and never overdoes my injections. She makes me look very natural and 10 years younger. I've been to a few dermatologists and plastic surgeons for injections, but she is the best. I would never go anywhere else. She is very talented aesthetically and truly an artist. Love her!! more

Great experience at The Skin Center 11/11/2011

I started going to The Skin Center over a year ago for Botox treatments....what a difference it made!! Highly recommend it to anyone who feels and looks their age, it takes you back a decade. No beauty cream can do that.\r First, Tracy Keeling is an absolute delight to deal with, she makes my appointments and often squeezes me in due to my crazy travel schedule. She keeps me up to date on the latest specials and treatments available and makes the whole experience pleasant and comfortable. \r Kathy Allen administors my Botox injections. She is wonderful, accurate, knowledgeable and professional. It takes less than 5 minutes and erases years off your forehead, brow and crows feet. \r \r Normally people only take the time to write bad reviews, but The Skin Center has been so awesome that it's worth the time/effort to send great accolades their way. more

Bags are gone thanks to Dr. Brandy and great staff. 10/17/2011

I had the bags under my eyes removed and a chemical peel in early May. It is the best thing I have ever done for myself. \r As an older mom of 4 children, 3 of them are in grade school, I was always tired and it showed. For years I had considered getting lower eye surgery and never did. \r When I finally decided to have the surgery I went to the Skin Center in Mt. Lebanon. Dr Bandy and his staff were so through and caring. They explained eveything and followed up many times after the surgery. \r The price they quoted was the price I paided. No surprises and I have many appointments. I am so happy with the results. I can not say enough about the nursing staff, they were knowledgable and fun. The entire experience was great. When I wake up in the morning no more bags. I am so happy.\r I say go for it! You won't regret it! more

Treat Your Body - You Are Worth It! 10/6/2011

I would like to share my experiences over the past 4 years at the Skin Center in Mt. Lebanon. I started out going for a simple consultation and have stayed ever since!\r \r I give the highest marks to Lois Greenberg. She has done a complete lasering job on my legs, underarms, and bikini with amazing results. Once that was done I stayed with her for Derma Sweep Treatments. There is none better than Lois! She an Tracy, at the reception desk, treat you like family. They are professional and welcoming. They keep me coming back. more

PCA Peel Perfection! 9/14/2011

I am very happy with the results of my recent PCA peels that I've received at the skin center. I've noticed a difference in my skin and am thrilled. Kim is great - very friendly and professional. Would recommend the skin center to anyone! more

World Class Surgeon, Caring and Dedicated to Patients! 7/20/2011

I am thrilled at my results with The Quicklift and Dr. Brandy. I live in California, so I can go anywhere. The only Cosmetic Surgeon I wanted was Dr. Brandy and no flight would have been too long to have him work on me! I did a ton of research and he hits all the yes buttons: he lectures, teaches The Quicklift, is a contributing author in many medical articles and even contributed to many books. The Quicklift is his procedure and there is little downtime, little pain and best all all done under a Local. What you will get is not a Joan Rivers pulled too tight look, but a natural look. A surgeon that can achieve that is in the top group in his field. I look at least 10 years younger today and I had the procedure done 4 years ago. His staff is also amazing and make you feel like royalty, very caring and willing to go the extra mile. The atmosphere is resort like and so professional. Do yourself a favor and call them . Once I hated looking in the mirror, now it is my friend again, and I love to look at myself, so will you! more

Breast Augmentation 7/20/2011

I recently had a Breast Augmentation procedure with Dr. Brandy. The results were wonderful. Dr. Brandy and the Staff at The Skin Center were professional, courteous, and informative. more

Changed my life 6/2/2011

My name is Rebecca and I am a medical Esthetician at The Skin Center in Wexford. I know its strange to see a review from an employee, which is why i gave a neutral rating. I am not trying to raise our rating. I became a patient of Dr Brandy in November 2010. I had lived with a ""bad"" breast aug procedure for the last 12 years of my life, which was thru my 30's when self esteem should be highest. I had a hard time finding bathing suits that didnt make them look obvious and had to attempt to push them together to look normal, I was very self consious. I am also a figure competitor and your self esteem on stage really effects how well you do. I felt great about every area of my body but my implants. \r Dr Brandy exceeded my expectations. He fixed the problem I was having, fitted them perfectly to my body and the implant itself is softer and more natural. On top of that my incisions after being cut a few times previously, look smaller and smoother. I never in a million years thought I would ever be this happy. I was in a bikini for the first time the other day and words cannot express how happy I am and how much I appreciate what he has done for me\r Ive noticed in reviews online that people tend to post when they are angry or unhappy...and no one really knows the real story...... but Dr Brandy deserves praise. He is a truly talented surgeon and has thousands of happy patients including myself and two of my family members including a cousin and a parent. When you consider cosmetic surgery, choose The Skin Center because we all truly care about our patients and we all have trusted Dr Brandy with our own bodies. more


After having liposuction surgery at The Skin Center by Dr. Brandy, I have to say that it was one of the best decisions I have ever made and my only regret is that I waited so long to do it! I am writing this post because I know how nervous I was about making the right decision just as anyone reading this is. After meeting Dr. Brandy during my consult and seeing the before and after photos, I was convinced this was the surgeon for me. He knows what he is doing and his confidence was very reassuring. If I have to point out a flaw, it would have to be that his comments could be a little short. I understand he is a busy surgeon so it was fine with me. I liked how one nurse was assigned to me and she was the one to return my calls. It was nice to talk to someone who was familiar with my surgery and my recovery. Overall, this was a great experience, it really has changed the way I feel about myself. I can finally wear the clothes I want to wear without feeling self-conscious about my body. Thank you Dr Brandy and staff. more

Dominic A. Brandy, MD is a Board Certified Cosmetic Surgeon 4/12/2011

I am Mary Diangelis, RN, and I have worked as a nurse of Dr. Brandy's for more than 25 years. In order to meet the rating requirements, and to be fair to this forum, I have given Dr. Brandy a neutral rating. In response to the post regarding Dr. Brandy's board certification I wanted to share the following: \r \r Dr. Brandy is always disheartened to learn that a patient is dissatisfied with the outcome of their surgery. Choosing to have cosmetic surgery is a big decision and when your personal expectations do not match the result, we understand that it can be disappointing. At The Skin Center when surgical outcomes do not meet patient expectations, we strive to maintain open communication to achieve patient satisfaction.\r \r I do want to clarify that Dr. Brandy is board certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (ABCS). A board certified cosmetic surgeon is certified exclusively in cosmetic surgery which focuses on enhancing a person's appearance through surgical and medical techniques. Cosmetic surgery is often only a small part of any of the residency training programs for many of the core specialties such as plastic surgery, dermatology, otolaryngology, gynecology, maxillofacial surgery and others. For this reason many of these doctors that have a special interest in cosmetic surgery often go on to become certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. \r more

Great First Botox Experience 4/6/2011

I'm a 37 year old woman who had deep furrows between her eyes thanks to bad eyesight and a lifelong love of books. I thought Botox would be an easy, painless way to get rid of my permanently worried-looking facial wrinkles. (I like easy & painless) The Skin Center had a great promotion going on, and the facility is comfortable and relaxing. The procedure takes 5 minutes, and I could see things smoothing out after a few days. As part of the service I went back a week later for some additional injections...apparently everyone's muscles respond a little differently. They were very concerned that I was completely's nice to be treated like such a valued customer! I definitely plan on going back for further treatments. I would highly recommend Botox at The Skin Center. more

Tummy Tuck with Dr. Brandy at The Skin Center Medical Spa 1/25/2011

I am the mother of three small children (7 yrs., 5yrs, and 14 months old). My kids were quite large (all delivered by c-section) and as a result I had an excessive amount of loose skin around my belly. I began looking at tummy tuck surgery, but kept putting it off thinking it was impossible to do and still care for my kids. After much contemplation (and many recommendations) I hesitantly made an appointment to see Dr. Dominic Brandy for an abdominoplasty consult. Needless to say I was very worried about having surgery (especially with a baby who at the time was just barely one year old) but I knew I really needed to take care of my body, I was really uncomfortable with the way I looked and felt.\r \r During the consult, Dr. Brandy walked me through the entire procedure and recovery. He very clearly told me what to expect before, during and after the surgery as well as gave me realistic expectations of my results. Dr. Brandy told me that he has modified the technique for a tummy tuck so the level of discomfort is minimized. Of all of the doctors I had visited, I really felt comfortable with him and decided to have it done.\r \r Leading up to surgery the nursing staff was in constant contact, making sure I was following my pre surgical protocol. Even as late as the evening before, someone called me to see if I was ready. The surgery went smoothly, post-surgical recovery was very tolerable as well. The nursing staff could not be more attentive, calling me to make sure I was feeling well, always returning my call if I had questions. And Dr. Brandy himself even called to see how I was feeling the night after the surgery! \r \r My recovery was faster than I expected. I was back to full swing about ten days after the surgery. And the pain was very minimal, I was actually off pain medication the very next morning -- and that is the truth! My results are beyond my wildest expectations. . .my tummy is flat and trim and I can actually fit into my clothes again. I have never been happier with my body. I am thrilled and cannot say enough about The Skin Center. If you are considering a tummy tuck, then you MUST see Dr. Brandy. The man is an amazing surgeon! \r more

The Skin Center 1/11/2011

I was very pleased with the treatments I received at The Skin Center. Kathy Allen was very professional, kind and knowledgeable about her job. She was not at all pushy with products or treatments and made me feel very comfortable while I was there. I have also gone to the Skin Center in Columbus, Oh and was pleased there as well. I would definately recommend this center for anyone seeking improvement in their skin and appearance. more

Great Service & Great Product Recommendations 8/14/2010

I decided it was time to focus on improving the look of my skin in 2010. The Skin Center was recommended by a friend for quality laser hair removal that lasts as well as skin improvements. My skin was very dry due to lack of attention and after a very dry winter. Lois, one of the employees there, in less than a couple treatments, was able to clean up the dead skin and recommend great products that I could use at home to continue the progress. I strongly recommend giving the Skin Center a try. They are not trying to sell you on anything and their pricing for service and products are competitive. more


I had a quick lift done on June 16th 2010, some fillers injected in my cheeks and , lip lines and the folds that run from the side of the nose down to the chin. I also had an eye peel to remove puffyness and lines. I LOOK GREAT(not to brag). Dr.Brandy is an artist, which in my opinion, is just as important as being an excellent surgeon. I looked so natural that my own Mother commented""you don't look different, you look better!!"" Most people didn't know why I looked so good, they only knew that I did. But not being a shrinking violet, I had to share it with all my ""sisters"". You have no idea how good you can feel, when the image that you see in the mirror matches the one that you have in your heart. Don't be afraid, the wonderful staff is there to hold your hand every step of the way. They are caring, competent, and kind. Live your life, it is GOD's gift to you. Enjoy it. more

Fan of The Skin Center 7/26/2010

I recently had cosmetic surgery on my eyes at The Skin Center. Dr. Brandy was my surgeon. The results and my experience was wonderful . From the person who checked me in to the nurses and the post-care staff I cannot say enough good comments. I felt very secure and comfortable knowing I was putting my vanity into another persons expertise.. After going home that evening with a staff member that offered to care for me I received a call from Dr. Brandy. He wanted too know how I was feeling and talked to the person who was caring for me. I can say I really was not in pain. The next day I returned to the office to see Dr. Brandy . I felt he truly took the time with my postcare instructions and once again the nurses and front office staff could not have been better. more
