My gosh. I think Dr. Cheng is so amazing. She is not pushy, if your smart, you will just ask her what she would do if it were her face. Trust her. If you are obsessive like I am, and just want more.... She will not do it. You are her calling card. She will make you beautiful and will not overdo like many doctors I have seen. I had chicken lips, now I have the prettiest lips. Not overdone, very natural. I trust her completely. She's knocked 10 years off my face. I'm in... She's the best!!!!!

Dr. Cheng is absolutely a wonderful doctor and spends a lot of time with you. I went to her about 4 months ago for Botox on my forehead and she sat with me for at least 15 minutes explaining how the facial muscles work and what to expect from Botox. I am going to go back in the next few weeks to get a touch up. I highly recommend going to her!

I'm a fairly new patient of Dr Cheng's...early 2009, but I will say ""I'm going to become an OLD patient"" I've had some leg-vein therapy & help with care of facial issues.The personal care from Dr Cheng , herself is so refreshing! She makes all the time you, as the patient, needs to feel comfortable understanding your procedure, her specific suggestions...without any pressure....I'm looking forward to exploring more with Nuveau and Dr Cheng.

Dr. Cheng has helped me tremendously. for three years, i've suffered with acne.
i felt horrible everytime looking at my face.
it was completely disgusting.
i was getting fed up after going to 3 other dermatologists without any success.
I just wanted to look better!
But thanks to Dr. Cheng, my dreams came true (:
Her techniques with
Photodynamic Therapy and the
Clarisonic Skin Care System
to help my Severe cystic acne with scarring
stopped my breakouts, pimples, acne.
after just one session of the photodynamic therapy,
my face has completely change.
when dr. cheng showed me pictures of how disgusting my face looked before the treatment and after the first session, i just couldn't believe what my eyes saw.
almost all the redness has dissapeared and i have no more big red pimples all over my face!
the entire thing is worth your money and time.
Dr. Cheng has magic

Thank you, thank you to Dr. Cheng, Tony and Teta the wonderful team at Nuveau Medical for the superb services I received. It has been about 45 days since my DOT Laser Therapy and the absolute magical lip plumping by Dr. Cheng. When I look in the mirror, I see a younger, healthier, prettier me. It is as if Dr. Cheng has somehow turned back the hands of time! I would highly recommend Nuveau to anyone that wants to look like a better, younger version of themselves.

I recently visited Nuveau Medical Aesthetics for DOT laser therapy, and I can't tell you how pleased I am with the results. I have always wanted smooth skin, smaller pores and an even skin tone. For years I battled melasma and breakouts, and more recently, fine lines and wrinkles. At Nuveau, I was thrilled to find one laser treatment to address all of these issues, and I'm even more thrilled with the results.
The DOT therapy procedure was painless (with the help of a topical anesthetic), and Dr. Cheng is amazing. She put me competely at ease, addressed all of my concerns and handled the laser with efficient precision. My total recovery time was about 10 days -- the skin with the largest brown patches (on my forehead and cheeks) took more than a week to completely flake off, but it was so worth it! Finally! My skin is smooth, my brown patches are either completely gone or have faded significantly, and my fine lines and deep frown lines are diminished. Something I hadn't been able to acheive with creams and serums. I now feel like I can comfortably walk out of the house without foundation on -- and that's something I didn't like to do before. I also feel like the great results are something that I can maintain for years to come.
I would definintely recommend Dr. Cheng, DOT Therapy and Nuveau, and I would certainly do it all over again. Nuveau Medical Aesthetics is a wonderful facility. The staff is friendly and knowledgeble, the environment is calm and Dr. Cheng is great!
Thanks, Tony! Thanks, Dr. Cheng! Thanks, Nuveau!

It's unlike me to write about something like this, but I could not resist doing so after seeing what Dr. Cheng did for my mom. My mom looks pretty good for 68, but has some lines and sagging skin on her face, as well as minor acne scarring from her teenage years. She recently visited Nuveau after hearing about a laser skin resurfacing procedure they offer called DOT Therapy. After the procedure, it took about a week for her complete recovery (she looked like she had gotten a bad sunburn after the treatment). It's been about a month ago now and I can't believe how much younger she looks. It's taken at least 20 years off her appearance! Her skin is bright and glowing, smooth looking and ""tighter."" The lines and acne scars are greatly diminished, as well. Mom is so happy with her appearance - I see it in the most subtle ways, like the way she now carries herself more confidently and the fact that she is always wearing a smile. I know that she has been self-conscious about her complexion all of her life. She deserves to feel better about herself and her appearance and Dr. Cheng has given her this gift. Thanks to everyone at Nuveau for taking such good care of my mom and for giving her self-confidence a big boost, not to mention her appearance!

Dr. Christine Cheng is great. I get my Botox treatments with Dr. Cheng and I'm very pleased. Recently I got Restylane injections with Dr. Cheng for the first time and I'm thrilled with the results. Dr. Cheng listens to what you want and goes from there. I wanted very subtle results and that's what I got. I'm very happy and will continue to come back to Nuveau for my treatments. Love Tony as well.

I was glad I took the chance to improve myself at Nuveau. I had moderate acne conditions and my dermatologist just wasn't helping me much. I decided to look into treatments other than topical prescriptions and I read about Nuveau. I made an appointment and boy was I glad! Dr Cheng was very patient and spent at least an hr chatting with me about what my options are. I chose to have a Levulan with laser treatment and a month later, my skin improved significantly. Dr Cheng is very attentive and she does most of my procedures personally. She monitored my progress and provided helpful suggestions on my skincare regime throughout. She's a doctor who cares. And Tony is just as helpful. He's very patient and will try his best to fit my demanding schedule into their hectic schedule.
All in all, I have nothing but great things to say and a great experience with Nuveau. Thank you Dr Cheng and Tony!

I was referred to Dr. Cheng by a friend who suggested I try botox. I was very fearful of the procedure, but she looked great and you couldn't ""tell"" she had had any work done. I felt it extremely important to be sure any procedures I had were being done by a licensed M.D.- which Dr. Cheng is. I made an appointment with no guarantee I'd go through with the procedure.
Dr. Cheng's office is beautifully appointed and very clean. Her office manager Tony is a delight when you first come in and eases any apprehensions with knowledgeable discussion. Dr. Cheng went over all of my concerns patiently and truthfully. I was very comfortable with the decision to go forward and try it. I LOVE my results and am now a firm believer in botox.
Since then I have had 3 laser spider vein treatments and have seen incredible results. I am now trying lipodissolve. Dr. Cheng has been more than forthcoming on what I should expect as far as pain and expected results. She does not paint a picture that is unrealistic and because of that I am extremely satisfied with all the treatments I have undergone.
There is no other physician I would trust more with my care.
I first went to Nuveau for lip injections. I really didn't know what to expect, but the beautiful cozy atmosphere of Nuveau's reception area set me at ease. Tony, Dr. Cheng's office manager, is friendly, helpful and very comfortable to be around. After my first lip enhancement, I was ""hooked"". I always wanted lush, full lips, and now I have them!! She is an artist with a needle, and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Also, I use fillers for the folds around my mouth, the droop that starts at the corner of your mouth, and the lines between your brows - I have to say I think I look and feel younger than 56, and I don't look so tired all the time. If you are unhappy with yourself when you look in the mirror, and you feel like you look tired all the time, the facial fillers can help you look refreshed and at least 10 years younger. Dr. Cheng is very good with just using enough filler so that you look natural even the next day. I recommend Nuveau for anyone that wants to feel good about themselves and is willing to do something about it. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
My mother and I started going to Dr. Cheng at the begining of this year and the results have been amazing! From day one Tony was very courteous and helpful and always greets us with a smile. As for Dr. Cheng we noticed that she takes her time with each patient and is always available for questions. She always explains each procedure to us and makes sure we understand and don?t have any additional questions.
My mother is having several procedures done including facials and chemical peels and her skin has improved dramatically. As for myself, I am using the Skin Print skin care system that Dr. Cheng recommended and for the first time in two years my skin is back to normal, I don?t have to wear make up every day, anymore. I?m also doing the laser hair removal which I highly recommend. Dr. Cheng takes her time and is very patient. The results have been amazing!!! I?ve only had two sessions and I can already see the difference!
A friend had gone for a facial and massage at Nuveau and recomended it to me. She said the massage and facial were amazing. I was far overdue for a good massage so I tried it out. She was right! Teta gave me the best massage I had ever had! She was amazing and had such a good energy about her. The massage room is beautiful and so relaxing. She listened and applied the perfect amount of pressure and made me feel so comfortable. This is by far the end of my search for a great massage! Thank you so much Teta! Your amazing
You walk in to a beautiful zen, calming environment...and let's face it you may be hitting the age where you wake up and look ""tired"" even in the morning...Nuveau and Dr. Christine Cheng will give you the perfect freshener. We all walk around and see people that are over plumped and too frozen looking....nightmare and scary for the average gal wantiong to look good. That was my greatest fear...looking like I had something ""done"". I went in and said ""less is more"" and that;s what I got.
No one would have picked up on it...I just got comments from girlfriends saying...""you look good..what did you do...haricut, color..something...hmm...Can't reccommend them enough. Tony takes pictures so you can see the truth and make your own decisions about what bothers you and Dr Chen's an artist...that's who I want futzing around with my face!!!

At the age of 56 I began having people comment on how tired I looked. This comment was becoming more frequent. I consulted with Dr. Cheng. She took her time and explained what the aging process had done over the years. She advised the Radiesse. As Dr. Cheng was doing each injections, I felt as if she were an artist at work. I have to say the outcome was miraculous. My eyes do not have that sunken look and not one person has said I look tired since the procedure. I have also had Botox injections which have removed what I call worry ones lines on my forehead. Dr. Cheng is a warm and caring person. Wow! What a blessing she has been in my life. Tony (Dr. Cheng's practice manager) is very professional and just as caring. Wonderful Experience.

I was a patient for many years of Dr. Cheng's before she started Nuveau. She was my General Practitioner, and she was the most intuitive doctor I'd had. I've since been going to her for Botox for almost two years now and she does an amazing job. It is always painless (unlike other plastic surgeons that I had been to) and I've never had any problems. Thank you Dr. Cheng!

I have been a patient of Dr. Cheng's for a little less than a year now. In the early fall of 2007 I received my first treatments of Botox and Restlyane. I loved the Botox instantly! I was a little swollen from the multiple injections at first from the Restlyane, however, when everything settled in I was extremely pleased with the natural and refreshed look. People that I have known for thirty years were complimenting me without thinking I had anything done. After five months the results of both seemed to needed to be refreshed again. Along with a special that Dr. Cheng was running on Radiesse I decided to try another round of Botox (which my husband gave me a gift certificate for Christmas) and and the Radiesse. Again, loved the Botox (I could be a salesperson for the product) and tried the Radiesse. The new product seemed to need time to settle in some with some redness and swelling, however, after a few months everything is quite natural looking. I guess you could say ""only my doctor knows""! I wish the Botox lasted longer but I have been told that the Radiesse lasts up to a year or more, which is great. With Dr. Cheng banking the pre-purchased product, I still have quite a bit of Radiesse to use up. So, I guess I will time it together with the Botox treatment and feel and look younger. Dr. Cheng listened to me about not overdoing anything and keeping everything as natural as possible. I loved the fact she agreed with being very conservative with the treatments.

I had to convince myself that a bit of cosmetic work to slow some of the visible effects of aging might be worth a try. One I did, all the excellent feedback I had heard about Dr. Cheng and Nuveau made me certain that she would be my choice.
My main goal was to have something done about the facial frown lines and creases that had been slowly becoming a bit more obvious. When I learned about Restylane and Perlane - injectable dermal fillers that Dr. Cheng is an expert in utilizing - I scheduled my appointment.
I am now among the true believers! This treatment, relatively painless and extremely efficient, left me with smoother, fuller and more youthful facial features. Gone was the tired, slightly haggard look. But the new ""look"" was very, very subtle. People do not look at me and ask what is different, or if I had had something done. My main comments were that I looked like I was more relaxed and that I looked as if I had been getting more rest.
I am extremely pleased with the procedure and the results. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a subtle-but-meaningful change in the way he or she looks. I commend Dr. Cheng and her thoughtful, considerate, well-informed staff.
