How they cured my my skin damage before it showed!
I found this wonderful spa through a groupon I bought, I was 58 and had never had any facials or other work done on my face before. I had three sessions of IPL and before any work was done at all, they take photos of your face from several angles and a ultraviolet photo that shows the scarey sun damage beneath the upper layers of skin. I could see lots of dark spots, invisible harbingers of age spots and precancerous spots to show up in later years.The IPL was wonderful, but to really get down into the lower layers and fix that damge so that it doesn't materialize, we had to do further fraxel laser treatment. The latest ultraviolet photo shows the hidden damage almost totally gone. I am a fair skinned girl who had white hair as a child. I had already had several precancerous spots removed from my face before this treatment.
I also later at 60 yrs old had my first try at botox to relax the vertical lines between my eyes, and some filler to reduce the lines from nose to corner of mouth. My husband says he can see the reduction in some early signs of aging. The antiaging effects of the treatments are wonderful but the damage correction that is not so visible to others is most reassuring.
It was Dr. Al Haj's medical specialty in burns, making her intimately skilled with human skin, its damage and rejuvenation that made me consider the more complex treatment. She is quietly professional, and not at all like what another reviewer portrayed. I do not believe that she would ever say anything disrespectful or rude to a client. Her staff is gentle and caring and there is no pressure to buy products, although they were introduced to me. The house sunscreen is terrific and although powerful it is a lotion type, rather than a cream. It goes into my skin very quickly and is easy to put on. They offer many more services than I have used, but they do not push these on me.
I will continue to come to Dr. Al Haj to keep my skin healthy and looking its best! I am very, very greatful I found her.
