"When I looked in the mirror I saw my neck wrinkle every day right in front of my eyes! [...] I wanted to do something about it."

When I looked in the mirror I saw my neck wrinkle every day right in front of my eyes! Oh, so not quite that bad…I exaggerate just a tad. But I didn’t like what I saw and I wanted to do something about it.

In January of 2005, I decided to have Thermage—a revolutionary non-invasive radio frequency technology procedure that tightens skin and renews facial contours by reshaping your skin’s innermost strctures. Promises, promises. Save your money! Nothing happened. And I was disappointed after paying a big chunk of change? You betcha!

I began having Vibraderm treatments—$125 and your skin glows! What more could you ask from any treatment. But Vibraderm didn’t do anything for wrinkles in my neck.

Well, then I stumbled onto Dr. Todd Schlesinger and the Dermatology Laser Center of Charleston. I scheduled a consultation with Dr. Schlesinger in the middle of June. He recommended a pulsing laser treatment— they call it IR (Infrared Light or LuxIR Skin Tightening). I call it WOW!

So what you’re seeing is after only 2 treatments! WOW!

I’m totally delighted that when I look in the mirror I no longer see my neck wrinkle in front of my eyes. My husband is delighted. The cost is less than Thermage, that didn’t work. Why not give Dr. Schlesinger a call? Yeah, it’s a little pricey but look at the results!

The staff is great. They’re all very friendly and seem to enjoy where they work. The treatment itself is virtually painless—a minor sting here or there. My face isn’t even red (although every one is different) after the treatment.

Keep up with my results—or better yet, schedule your own treatment at the Dermatology Laser Center of Charleston.

Am I happy with my results? You betcha!
