I got chemical peels for freckles six months ago and I am extremely happy with the results of the procedure. No pain, no burning, no side effects. My friends seriously doubt that I have really undergone chemical peel, because their experiences were quite terrible. I would take this chance to thank Olimpia Carmen and her staff for being so cooperative all through. I highly recommend Laser Skin Care and Olimpia for all skincare treatments.
I am just 35 years old. My skin began to sag a couple of years ago, which was really distressing for me. What frustrated me the most was everybody telling me that this sagginess is irreversible. But when I met Olimpia, her response was very encouraging. She told me that a few sessions of chemical peels will be enough to address minor sagginess. And I really got back my taut, youthful skin after just 5 chemical peels sessions. Thank you Olimpia, you are great!
I am getting chemical peels for unsightly age spots on my cheeks. Just two sessions and the dark spots have started to fade. I am very happy with the results so far. Thanks Olimpia, you are great. I would love to come back to Laser Skin Care for other cosmetic procedures as well, especially laser hair removal.
