Hey Kinimi, only the doctors perform the ablative laser treatments at the Skin and Laser Center here. There is 4 to 5 to choose from but Kilmer has the most experience. I never had a non-ablative laser treatment (such as restore) done at that facility. However, I have had a few done from a different doctor's office in Sacramento which did have a nurse perform the treatment. You can request and have a consultation with whichever doctor you prefer from this clinic. They are pretty good at putting any of your questions to rest. Anyways, I go in tomorrow for my next repair. Keep you posted.
Though I will say, Suzanne Kilmer is no slouch of a doctor. She is rated by News Week and Self Magazine as one of Americans top 10 laser surgeons. She has also made appearances on the Oprah show and the View, so I would hope she is not ripping me for my money. But the jury is still out as I hope to see better results before the 6 month mark.
If I ask for her to do my treatment, will she? I'm planning on traveling there to have a consultation as no one in my city offers ablative lasers. I read a review on realself that said a nurse does treatment but I think the person did restore and posted it in the wrong section, but I'm just making sure.
