41 Yr Old Not Happy with Wrinkles and Skin Tone - Birmingham, AL

I went to my doctor for the first time thinking I was getting botox to look and feel my best just before my wedding. She recomnended doing laser resurfacing to get the best result for my money. I felt I could trust her after just a few minutes of talking with her. She's was very genuine about wanting to help me feel better about myself. The treatment itself was a little more painful than I was expecting especially the first hour afterwards. I took some benadryl and slept like a baby. The next day my skin felt very tight and looked much worse than it felt. It was slightly tender when washing my face but nothing painful at all. By the 4th day my skin peeled and tge new skin appeared. I was able to wear make up again on day 6. I did this treatment just 2 weeks before my wedding and it was one of the best things I've ever done for myself. I felt beautiful with my new smooth and glowing skin. The outside mat hed with what I was feeling on the inside. I am now only 4 weeks out from having the laser done and I am amazed at my results. My skin tone is so much brighter and beautiful. My skin looks and feels smoother. I barely have to use any foundation now and it just goes on so much smoother. The dark sun spots are all gone and the wrinkles around my mouth that bothered me are so much softer than they were and are about 50-75% gone. I highly recommend this treatment to anyone who is considering it. I would and probably will absolutly do it again.

I was so nervous walking into this beautiful and fancy office. It was quite intimidating. Im just a average woman but when I walked in they greeted and treated me like a queen. Dr. Petro took her time with me explaining the pros and cons of various options available. When I told her money was a concern she helped me decide on a treatment to get the most for money. Even after have to explain things more than once she never got frustrated. She took her time with me which is something doctors dont usually do anymore. Not only was she a doctor but she was a woman who understood what I was going through as a 41 yr old woman who has had to many aging things happening to me at once and caused me to loose alot if self esteem and confidence. It took only a few short minutes before I realized Dr.Petro genuinly wanted to help me. She's one of the kindest and caring doctors Ive ever met not to mention incredibly talented. An excellent doctor in knowing what treatments are best for her patients. You can tell she's passionate about her work and making women feel beautiful. Its a exceptional gift she has. Im beyond greatful to have met a doctor I love and trust as much as I do. Her staff are just as amazing as she is. Petro Plastic Surgery and Med Spa is by far the best!
