Twins Who SLR Together, Stay Together

I was one of the many Carole devotees who followed her from her previous office to her new and updated current space, SLR. A few years ago I had a flare up and asked around for some recommendations and my twin told me about Carole. I've since recommended her to many of my friends and co-workers for their flare ups, skin maintenance and hair laser removal. I now go religiously with my twin and we wouldn't go anywhere else! Carole and her wonderful staff are very knowledgeable and friendly and work very hard to keep you coming back again and again.

I have been Carole's client for over ten years! My sister put me on to her and I have not looked back since! I get a mini facial or a deep pore treatment and Carole is able to take years off! I feel rejuvinated and refreshed after each session. She is also a wonderful conversationalist! Her staff is quite professional and always welcome me with open arms. I look forward to my next appointment!

MAGIC

I been battling with adult acne for 4 years. You can imagine I have tried everything under the sun. NOTHING WORKED!!! Then came an angel name Carole Burns from Skin Laser Rejuvenation. We were introduced by a good friend who gave Carole rave reviews. She then personally spoke to me with kind reassurance that she could definitely help me. First I must say, she has a very welcoming atmosphere. Then, began the work. No pain at all, just the sensation of knowing work was getting done. Carole was very comforting throughout the entire process. Afterwards, my skin felt brand new. The true prize came when in just a matter of a day, I could see how my skin itself was more even & clear. I didn't realize until this visit that not only did I have acne scarring, but my complexion was blotchy. After this one treatment, I could see more even toned & refined skin. The dark acne scars have gotten lighter. I've had only 2 extremely minor pimples come on my chin in a 2 week timespan where as before, I would break out in 2 to 5 different places everyday. Can you imagine how happy I am? I also had very oily skin. The previous products I was using made it even worse. The products that Carole sent me home with has kept my skin extremely balanced & it just glows. Breaking out everyday for 4 years made me cry because I saw no hope. Now, not only can't I stop looking in the mirror at the awe of my progress, but I can finally look at myself and smile! See ya next visit! :-)

Sasquatch Civilized

Oh to be a hairy beast, descendant of the much reviled Sasquatch of mountain lore, ever persecuted and detested because of my fuzzy shoulders and back, covered perpetually in an undergrowth of hellish hirsutism. Yes, that was none other than myself, a hairy man, much like the Sasquatch of yore, who was forced to flee from detection, not from hunters, but from the predacious eyes of the beauty conscious everywhere, whom I knew would persecute and pierce me with their disapproval and disgust of the dense follicular outgrowth sprouting about my back and shoulders. Then, one day, I met Carole the owner and top aesthetician at Skin Laser Rejuvenation and she kindly and compassionately reassured me that I didn't have to be resigned to a life of hiding and shame, but the she could in fact help a cowering Sasquatch like myself. At my first session of laser hair removal I was apprehensive and uncertain but her establishment's beatiful and spotless interior plus her warm and convivial staff, immediately put this hairy beast at ease. I am now on my third session and am but a mere shadow of my former fuzzy self. Soon my back and shoulders will be permanently hair free and at last the glorious man that I truly am can emerge from without the wooly depths of his former beast self. I am free. I am free. Sasquatch has been civilized and I owe it all to Carole and everyone at SLR. Bless you all. Your once furry friend, Stephen Goldfinger.

Thank You SLR

It's been about a month since my last post. I must say that I am so in love with my face. I have battled about 4 years of acne and acne scarring. Not only was it bad, but it was getting worst. I hated facing the public and especially dating. Carole and her team at Skin Laser Rejuvenation took 4 years worth of horror away in just ONE MONTH. Family, friends, and co-workers MARVEL at the results. I am practically flawless. From day one I notice HUGE results. When I went to my 1st follow up, Carole showed me my before pictures. I instantly cried. I couldn't believe how bad my skin truly was and how far I had come after just one treatment. During that follow up, Carole sent me home with products to keep everything going. I missed my 2nd follow up because I was out of town, but even with missing that follow up but continuing to use the home products, I have made tremendous and steady progress. The thing that I most rejoice about is that I haven't had even one pimple. Even if I feel something trying to form, I used the at-home products, which is highly anti-bacterial, and whatever was trying to come just dissolved. I used to break out in 2 to 5 places on my face EVERYDAY, so to not have a pimple at all in a month? I feel like I've been let out of prison. I tell everyone, if you want healthy, flawless, even-toned and pimple-free skin...Carole and the Skin Laser Rejuvenation team are your final stop. I feel like I have been given my life back.

I went in for a mini facial, and there was nothing mini about my appointment! Carole made me feel extremely comfortable, and was very informative. She extracted every single pimple from my face, and it feels amazing! I can't remember the last time I haven't had one pimple. I really cannot stop touching my face. I will definitely be back for more.

I came to SLR for a mini-medi facial and it was fantastic. The esthetician was pleasant and knowledgeable, she inquired about my skin care routine and provided helpful advice on how to deal with my combination skin. The facial felt wonderful, my skin felt great and I would definitely return again!

I have been going to see Carole for laser procedures for a couple months now and she is absolutely wonderful. She is very knowledgeable about what she does and really helps put you at ease during the treatments. Her staff is always very friendly and it is a true pleasure going to my appointments. I am very particular about my skin care and highly recommend SLR!!

Nice Staff, Great Results

The first time I met with Carole, my face was a mess. I had a lot of scars, a bit of acne and uneven skin tone. Not only is she a knowledgeable, sweet woman, but she is thorough in her work and is passionate about seeing results for her patients. I trust her, and that says a lot with all the bad experiences I've had in trying to tackle my skin issues over the years. It's not cheap, but if I can now stare in the mirror with confidence, you're damn right I'll be returning to her office for treatments. I am now also trying out laser hair removal with her. I will report back with those results as well!
