Three cheers for Olimpia Carmen, my laser expert. I have undergone numerous laser treatments at Laser Skin Care including Laser Hair Removal and Acne Scar Treatment. The latest procedure I have had done at the clinic was to get a surgical scar removed that I got after C Section. After just five sessions of Fractional CO2 skin resurfacing, my belly is now smooth and clear as if I have never undergone a surgery. Thanks Olimpia!
I am writing this to thanks Olimpia and Laser Skin Care for helping me get rid the appendectomy scar. I am very fussy when it comes to even small scratches and you just imagine what would have been my condition after getting that raised scar on the side of my abdomen after appendectomy. But thanks to Olimpia and her team that helped me get rid of this unsightly scar within a couple of months after getting it. Thank you all.
