I have been living with severe cystic acne scarring for about 20 years. I had tried so many treatments and very little results. I gave up and resigned myself that I just had to get used to having a scarred face. Then to make things worse, suddenly at 35 years old, my cystic acne came back worse than ever! It was horrible, a real nightmare. This time however, I was lucky, because a colleague at work told me about the amazing results he had with his acne scars at AMA skincare. Here is my summary:
1. The consultation was amazing. I learned more about my condition in one hour than the previous 20 years.
2. They have a huge array of lasers. Many more than the 4 other big clinics I went to.
3. The doctor customized a treatment protocol for me, that included 6 different lasers, Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, collagen induction therapy, and physiological medicine with acupuncture.
4. I had 4 treatments, one every 4 weeks. They numbed my face, so that I barely felt the treatments.
5. Recovery time was about 2-3 days of looking a bit raw followed by 2-3 days of peeling. I was never in any discomfort.
6. With every treatment I literally saw my skin ""morph"" into young healthy skin again. It was weird and wonderful to see my skin change from the inside-out.
The staff are friendly and very caring, and the two doctors who own the clinic are world class experts. Also, Dr. Alice Pien has the most gentle hands and a healing touch.
Bottom line: Not only did they make my active cystic acne disappear, my old horrible scars are 90% gone! for the first time in 20 years, I actually like looking at my face in the mirror, and I love the way my new healthy skin feels.
