I chose Dr. Nikolaidis of Westlake Dermatology in Austin, Texas to perform the Fraxel Re:pair laser on my face and neck because of his impressive credentials in the area of laser resurfacing and other minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. In fact, when I did an internet search I found that he was quoted in numerous articles on the Fraxel Re:pair. He was selected by Reliant (the laser company) to be among a handful of physicians in the country to use the new Fraxel Re:pair laser after it??s world premier in January 2008.. The fees charged were much lower than other clinics I looked at. My decision was made and I booked a flight from Colorado to Austin.
I want to tell you about the great experience I had at Westlake Dermatology. The staff is friendly, helpful, caring, and encouraging. Before and after the procedure they gave assurance when I needed it.
Dr. Nikolaidis really cares about his patients. He listened intently about what I wanted to achieve regarding my face and neck. He made sure that I was comfortable before, during, and after the procedure. I found that he is very thorough and takes preventive action before there is a possible problem. For example, he scheduled an additional appointment (at no extra fee) just to make sure I was on track. He also advised me about other cosmetic procedures that would compliment the Fraxel Re;Pair and I went with his advice.
I can already see the results that I had hoped for! One of the areas I wanted to improve were the deep crow's feet and lax skin around my eyes. He combined the Fraxel Re:pair with another laser called the Active FX to treat this area. The results are impressive. The skin around my eyes is tight and there is no sign of crow's feet. It's been only 6 days since I had the procedure done and I'm looking forward to continual improvement for my face and neck over the next 6 months.
