Hated for more than 20 years to see two indented scars on my forehead, which I got after falling from the stairs at the age of 5. I did not want to go for excision and the dermatologists had no other option for me. Went in for a consultation with Olimpia six months ago and today my forehead is scars less, courtesy Laser Skin Resurfacing. Thanks Olimpia, thanks lasers!
I had a small, half inch depressed scar on my cheek which I got after cyst excision. I was eager to get the depression filled but non-invasively coz cyst excision experience was horrible. I consulted different dermatologists and surgeons but they all refused stating it was impossible to fill the scar depression without surgery. But Olimpia accepted the challenge and after just 4 sessions of Fractional CO2 Laser I had a small, half inch depressed scar on my cheek which I got after cyst excision. I was eager to get the depression filled but non-invasively coz cyst excision experience was horrible. I consulted different dermatologists and surgeons but they all refused stating it was impossible to fill the scar depression without surgery. But Olimpia accepted the challenge and after just 4 sessions of Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing, combined with PRP I have started noticing improvements. Anxiously waiting for my 5th session!
During my teens I got two piercing under my lower lip. Now after seven years, when I got them removed I was left with two glaring holes on my chin area. A friend of mine suggested me to see Olimpia of Laser Skin Care. And now after just 5 sessions of laser skin resurfacing, the piercing holes are completely gone. Could not be happier more.
