Acne & Hyperpigmentation
Sophia was very motivated to finally get her skin clear because she had tried so many different things. With the right products, her skin cleared in a little over three months.
I suffered with acne for 18 years before finding Face Reality. Over the years I have visited 7 dermatologists on THREE continents. I have taken antibiotics, Accutane, used every cream known to man for treatment of acne, purchased all kinds of things advertised on TV in desperation, been told this was just the way it is for me, paid for peels and more peels, tried herbs and vitamins, you name it.
I made my appointment after having lunch with a friend of mine with really difficult acne who had been going to Face Reality for a year – I had not seen her in a while and her skin looked FANTASTIC. I went back to my office and mentioned this to a work colleague. I told her my friend had been going to a place called Face Reality. She said “Oh I went there..” and I said but you have perfect skin and she said “I do now!”. I made an appointment for two days later and have never looked back. Is my skin absolutely perfect – no but it is AMAZINGLY GOOD CONSISTENTLY!!! Once I was at the clinic, I found that one of their staff had actually worked at one of the dermatologists I had gone to at one time. We talked about how Face Reality’s approach was so different to how that dermatologist had tried to approach acne. The other miracle that Face Reality has given me has been in treating the dark pigmentation from old acne scars.
Victoria came to us having used Differin and some benzoyl peroxide. She had a case of inflamed acne with a lot of dark spots from the acne. We got her onto the right regimen for her skin and she cleared up beautifully. Her acne went away first and within a few months, her dark spots faded as well.
I have been going to Face Reality for over two years now and not only has my face cleared but I actually get compliments on my skin! The staff and Laura is nothing but supportive and very helpful when it comes to the stress and struggles of acne sufferers. The routine, itself, is very easy and as long as you follow the home care regimen, it works. I have tried Proactiv and many OTC and dermatologist-prescribed acne products and none of the products have left me with the skin I have now. Thank you Laura!
I couldn’t believe the story that Alison told me about her experience with a Medispa that she went to for over six months. She needlessly spent thousands on products and services that didn’t work for her. I looked at the products she was using and saw pore-clogging ingredients in them and the serums they had given her were more for anti-aging and no ingredients in them that would help her acne or help to lighten the dark spots on her face. We got her onto a regimen for noninflamed Acne and also for lifting the dark spots – her acne was mostly gone in three months and the dark spots were gone in six months.
I have had acne pretty much all of my life and I figured one day it would go away on its own as I got into my 20s, but it never did so I just accepted it. I had gone to dermatologists and even prescription medications didn’t work. I was convinced nothing would work.
Then, I came across a place I thought would do the trick—microdermabrasions and corrective peels sounded like just what I needed. I nervously plopped down $800 [or so] for the treatments and another $200 for the facial products. For about six months and thousands of dollars later, there was no change with my skin-and, of course, there were no refunds.
Finally, my mom found the article for Face Reality and I was completely skeptical. I kept the article, though, for about a month while I finished up my remaining treatments at the other place. I had one treatment left and decided to call Face Reality.
To make a long story short, I am still a client at Face Reality and my skin has never looked so great. I get so many compliments from people and my self esteem has shot through the roof. Needless to say, I never made my last appointment for the other place. Thanks Face Reality!!
