For 6 years I have been very insecure about my acne scars. I struggled to fight my insecurities only to find myself searching for better makeup, topical ointments, and regiments to improve the appearance of my scars so I could finally feel comfortable in my own skin. I went on Accutane twice, which finally resolved my breakout problem; yet, I still didn’t feel confident. I have consulted with numerous dermatologists and skin care professionals, but have never had an experience so substantial like the one I had at the Gateway Aesthetic Institute with Dr. Taylor. It is staffed with friendly, professional, and experienced people who all try their best to assure your experience will be unlike the rest. The facility has a great atmosphere that provides a comfortable and refined setting. The facility is also combined with the store Apothica, which is stocked with amazing skin care products at reasonable and affordable prices. It’s also great for when you have a procedure coming up, you can just buy everything you need from there! This feature of the facility adds to the stress-free experience when you have a procedure.

When meeting with Dr. Taylor, he examined my scars and provided me with detailed feedback on what would be the most effective solution. He explained the procedure and showed me pictures of previous patients to see expected results. We scheduled the appointment and I was ready to go! Pre-op, they went over detailed instructions regarding how much down-time you will need, what to expect, etc. I definitely felt very prepared after going over all of the information! Procedure day was very stress-free, I was escorted to the operation room where I was advised to take the prescribed pain killers, had numbing cream applied, and was assisted to lay down on a comfortable bed where I was able to relax and let everything take effect for about 30 minutes before the procedure started. The procedure itself was rather uncomfortable, as expected since it was a laser treatment, but it was tolerable. The procedure took about 1.5-2 hours but I felt like it flew by. Recovery and down time was super relaxing, since you are advised to just keep off your feet and let the healing process take effect. I was able to communicate with Dr. Taylor via text if I had any questions, and I definitely. He was incredibly polite and timely about his responses and provided me with the reassurance I need as far as my recovery went. It’s been about a month since the procedure and I COULDN’T BE HAPPIER, with my results and the whole experience itself. I would recommend, and have recommended, Dr. Taylor to anyone who is facing struggles with acne scars or any other concerns that he can treat.
