Favorite Treatment: CO2 laser

What bothers her most about her skin:  My Melasma

Favorite Skin Care Tip: Results do not occur overnight. However, they will continue to improve the longer you use a product or continue your treatments.  Prevention is always better! Start young wearing sunscreen, using medical-grade skincare and having skin procedures done to slow the aging process.  Be aware of your skin and have it regularly examined by a trained Dermatology provider.
