Amazing results for Melasma! I had originally gone in to the Anti-Aging Clinic with a Groupon for underarm laser and first impression of the staff (especially Silva) was that they were extremely friendly and professional. I was then introduced to Sarah, who was going to do my laser (I had six sessions of underarm laser) and she did a fantastic job – Thank you Sarah!! During my laser sessions (which took about 5 months in total) I kept on seeing some pamphlets about a “Spectra Peel” treatment and how it could help Melasma. I can tell you at first I thought “ya right” another sell on how to get rid of Melasma. What you need to understand is that I have had my Melasma for over 15 years. Have gone to several top dermatologist in Toronto who said that there was no cure for Melasma and all they can do is prescribe a “skin lightening” cream to help but there was no cure for this as I will always have it. I have gone as far as “bleaching my face” at a doctor’s office (very painful, expensive and had to take 1 week off of work) and my Melasma was better by 50% but as soon as I was in the sun (with Sunscreen and a hat) my Melasma came back and even worse.
So I asked Silvia if I could speak with someone to find out more about this procedure (I am always hopeful that there would be something that would at least clear some of my Melasma, even by 50% I would be happy). Silva introduced me to Mark, who I can truly say is very knowledgeable about his services and about Melasma. I was so impressed that I spoke with him 2 more times to get a better understanding of the Spectra Peel treatment. So what Mark told me was that Melasma can only be cured if we can get to the root of the Melasma which is under the skin and other product’s that I have used only help with what is on top of the skin. He really made sense so I finally decided to try this procedure. WOW, WOW and WOW, what I can tell you is that not only is it pain free and no down-time required, but by my 3rd session I was able to go to work without cover-up (I have used cover-up for 15 years and have never left my house without it). People at work noticed that my face was clearer and that I looked good. By my 4th session, I can honestly say that 90% of my Melasma is gone!! I don’t know how to thank the super staff at the Anti-Aging Clinic! But thank you so much Mark for making me feel attractive again! If I had to rate this place out of 10, I would give it a 20! Thank you again Sarah, Silva and Mark.
Execellent experience! Thanks to all the staff at the Anti-Aging Clinic
