It's been about 6 weeks since I had the treatment, and the deep scars are fading beautifullyVickie, South Africa, 14 07 21

I visited Advanced Skin Solutions for the removal of skin tags and blood spots. Dawn is extremely professional but caring at the same time. When she knew that a procedure would be painful, she anaesthetized the area (I opted for no anaesthetic to start with). It's been about 6 weeks since I had the treatment, and the deep scars are fading beautifully. I will definitely be using Advanced Skin Solutions the next time I need this treatment, which is every few years. Thank you, Dawn.
