Dr. Shwalek was amazing. Very accommodating and informational. It was a pleasant few hours. She answered all my questions and concerns.
5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser
I've always been self conscious about my skin, especially my face. I have a lot of sun damage and melasma and have always wanted to correct my issue. After consulting with Dr. Chwalek we decided a fraxel would be the right option for me. At first I was a bit apprehensive due to my olive/tan skin, but she reassured me this would be the best option. After thinking about it for awhile I decided to finally go ahead and schedule my treatment. I must really say that after two treatments now, my skin looks great! I definitely see a huge difference. I barely have to wear any foundation. She was definitely right about how to correct my issue and I will schedule more treatments in the future with her.
