After a near fatal factory accident, I was left with severe facial scars. I was a new, young mother and dreaded the thought of my son growing scared of my appearance. My dermatologist sent me to Gail Robertson at Skin Medx for which I'll be forever blessed. I always felt embarrassed going for consultations and was apprehensive to subject myself yet again. When Gail received me and introduced herself, I immediately felt comfortable. I felt at that moment, she was meeting ME, a person and not focused on my obvious facial scars. It didn't take much time to know that I am in the right, caring hands and was being directed to resolve. I had many other laser treatments at hospitals and clinics and did not see any change. With Fraxel Restore, I noticed improvement on my surgical scars after the first few treatments. My family and friends recognized the changes (my mother cried each time), then in the final stages I walked a different walk and was no longer afraid to face my daily life.

At 56 years of age and menopausal, I thought there was nothing I could do to lift and tighten my sagging, aging skin. I had tried some skin tightening lasers that made little or no difference to my appearance. I was referred to Skin Medx by my Dermatologist who had referred many of his patients who raved about their results. After three Fraxel Restore treatments, I am happier with my skin now than I have ever been. I saw a difference after each treatment and continued to see improvement three months after my last one. Not only did I get a lift but my pores are smaller and my age spots are gone.

I just turned 40, (Asian female) been living in Hawaii for the past five years and as much as I'm diligent about sun protection, I looked 45. When visiting Toronto and admiring the beautiful glowing skin of my best friend, I had to know her secret. She told me all about her experience with Fraxel and was happy to take me to Skin Medx ten days before my return to Hawaii. It was an unbelievable experience A-Z . I was seeing my skin change before my eyes. When my skin was shedding, it was very brown looking. I realized how unaware of how much sun damage I had. Since I returned home and to my job in the Exotic pearl and jewelry boutique on the Island, I have been receiving compliments galore. I find myself sneaking glances in the mirrors and in the glass displays when I'm polishing them, "admiring my own skin"...

"I had extensively researched Fraxel/Laser that it could address my skin concerns from aging. I then had to find a trustworthy, capable, experienced and honest professional to provide these treatments. Gail (she'd in great demand), she was more than I expected. Gail is knowledgeable, honest, experienced, candid, careful, patient, kind and, quite simply, wonderful. Her sterling reputation is well deserved. After four treatments in fourth months, I & others are seeing an improvement in the smoothness and tightness in the skin of my face & neck. I look forward to increased benefits in the coming months as the full effects of the collagen remodeling become apparent."
I am a middle aged male and had several concerns with my skin. My biggest concern was my deep acne scarring or "ice pick scars". I had suffered embarrassment since my teens and tried many other treatments and products before being directed to Gail Robertson of Skin Medx. I was initially skeptical as nothing had worked in the past .However; Gail came so highly recommended that I was, for the first time, hopeful. After a thorough analysis of my skin, Gail introduced the Fraxel Restore laser treatment. She carefully explained the procedure and what my expectations should be before I enthusiastically booked my appointment. Her knowledge, expertise and especially her care was unbelievable. As explained to me, there was some discomfort. However, my scars have diminished and the sun damage caused by my efforts to camouflage the scars has been removed. I am extremely happy.
