I have been going to Sanctuary Medical Center for a couple of years now. I really love the entire staff. They are friendly, helpful and conservative. I’ve been so pleased with my experience there that I thought it would be great to share with you the treatments that I had done recently on my skin. I’ve always struggled with my skin. I have hyperpigmentation, fine lines, loss of collagen, acne scarring and uneven skin texture. Yay for me! Ugh it’s tough but I really have come so far.
I started seeing Cheryl Staurowsky who is a licensed Aesthetician a couple years ago and absolutely love her. I’ve done several chemical peels with her. She always has the best products that are always on the cutting edge of skincare. We did a few chemical peels to get my skin ready for the BBL and Halo laser treatments I had done at Sanctuary Medical Center with Dr. Schwedelson. My last visit with Cheryl was post laser for a chemical peel to get my skin in tip top shape. She is personable and so knowledgable. I’ve learned so much from her. I’m so excited to be trying out a brand new product she is carrying. Skin Better Tone Smart SPF 68 Sunscreen Compact. If there is one thing that Cheryl has told me over and over is to wear sunscreen everyday. Don’t go outside without it. I am loving this compact. When I don’t have time to put on makeup I just use this compact. It blends with my skin nicely and protects it from the damaging South Florida rays. I highly recommend her for facials, chemical peels, and all the latest topical skincare.
Dr. Schwedelson is such an amazing dermatologist. She prescribed me spironolactone for my hormonal acne that was primarily on my chin. This medication has changed my skin considerably. Once we were able to get my acne under control. We scheduled the BBL and Halo laser treatments for the same day. They numbed my face when I arrived. The first treatment was the BBL laser. This focuses on the hyperpigmentation and acne scarring. The second treatment was the HALO laser. This laser focuses on dark pigmentation, uneven skin texture, enhances skin tone and laxity, minimizes pores and fine lines. It was uncomfortable and hot but not painful. The first 3 hours after the laser was the most uncomfortable. My face was on fire. After the first 3 hours it was fine with no pain at all. I also told told Dr. Schwedelson that when I would pucker my lips I didn’t like the dimpling in my chin. She suggested doing a few drops of botox in my chin. Who knew that was even a thing!? Wow let me tell you what a difference! Genius!

I know you are wondering about the down time honestly there really isn’t any. I didn’t wear any makeup for the first few days and I stayed out of the sun completely but other than that I resumed my busy life as a mama of two very active little girls. My skin scabbed up and flaked off revealing a much more even skin texture with less brown spots and fine lines in about 7 days! Wow! I was so shocked to see the difference! I highly recommend this treatment for anyone that faces any of my skin challenges. After all, when my skin looks good I definitely feel more confident and happy! I’m so pleased with my results.
