They've really helped me not only transform my skin, but also my confidence, and that is everything.

Years battling acne: About 15 years

Skin type: Moderate combination acne + post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

The AES Solution: 13 treatments over 7 months. It took longer than average to clear this client because her skin was pretty sensitive and reactive topically. Having sensitive skin is one of the common reasons why someone might take longer to graduate the program because we want to make sure we go slowly with the products and treatments to not cause any permanent damage to the skin.

After struggling with acne for the past two years, I am finally clear

Years battling acne: 2

Tried: Aczone, Tretinoin, extractions, facials

Goal: I want to be acne-free or at least have less frequent pimples pop up. I take great care of my skin and for the most part my skin looks great in the areas where I don’t have active acne. I would like to not worry about going outside and putting makeup over random spots. Until two years ago, I never had a pimple and after seeing many dermatologists I am looking for something that finally works.

Skin type: Mild combination acne on cheeks + mild post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

The AES solution: This client graduated the program after just 1 treatment and 1 lightening peel. This is much faster than the average 6-8 treatments but since she had mild acne, all she needed was some coaching on her lifestyle and a little bit of helping purging the existing acne out of the skin to get her glowing!

No more putting make up to go to the gym or even to go to work

Years battling acne: 6

Tried: Rodan + Fields Unblemish line, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, extractions, acne facials

Goal: To learn how to achieve healthier skin and to clear up the acne but get rid of the dullness and make it more even

Skin type: Moderate combination acne + post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

The AES solution: These pictures were taken 8 months apart after 10 treatments and 4 lightening peels. Her acne was actually completely clear after the average 7 treatments over 3 months but it took an additional 4 lightening peels to help get rid of the post-inflammatory pigmentation (dark marks) that were pretty stubborn due to picking. The additional 3 treatments were routine maintenance treatments that we usually perform every 6-8 weeks once someone graduates the program.

Transforming dark marks and mild acne into even, glowing skin

Years battling acne: 15-20

Tried: Spironolactone, Retin-a, Proactiv, Microdermabrasion, antibiotics, extractions, spa facials

Skin type: Moderate combination acne + post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

The AES solution: This transformation took 9 treatments over 4 months to achieve. Although her acne was not severe, her skin was pretty sensitive when she started the program from the various prescriptions and products she had used previously so it took one treatment longer than average to graduate her because we wanted to make sure her skin was balanced and strong before we started her on stronger peels and products.

Transforming dark marks and mild acne into even, glowing skin - AES Acne Clinic

I don't think I realized how much having acne was weighing me down until it was gone.

Years battling acne: 10

Goal: Reduce congestion, acne and pigmentation

Tried: I was seeing an Esthetician for monthly facials for seven months. I thought the congestion would clear up from extractions but they have stayed consistent.

Skin type: Combination acne + occasional cysts + post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

The AES solution: These pictures were taken 4 months apart after 6 treatments. It usually takes longer to even out the pigmentation and dark marks than to clear the acne itself but in this case her skin was clear AND even by the time she graduated the program!

Cystic acne and redness transform into clear, bright, even skin

Years battling acne: 7

Tried: Proactiv and Tretinoin cream

Goal: To achieve clear, healthy skin that doesn’t hurt. Less oiliness, more clear, no scars or dark marks, and no cysts

Skin type: Severe combination acne + cysts mostly on the cheeks + post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation + mild scarring

The AES solution: The first and second pictures were taken after 6 acne facial treatments over 3 months and you can see that her acne has completely cleared but there was still a bit of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation leftover. The third picture was taken 3 months after the second picture (so after 6 total months of AES) and at that point her redness and pigmentation had gone away completely just from using the product kit and one additional maintenance treatment.

I know how devastating it can feel to have acne but don't give up yet! There is plenty of hope and clear skin is just within your reach

Years battling acne: 12

Tried: Proactiv, Accutane, Doxycycline, birth control, facials with Estheticians, countless over the counter products

Number of Dermatologists visited prior: 5

The AES solution: It took longer to clear this client than the average 6-8 treatments over 3-4 months because we needed to purge the skin slowly to prevent more cysts from forming and potentially scarring or pigmenting the skin so these pictures were taken 6 months apart during which she had 17 appointments. You can see in the after pictures that there is still some mild scarring remaining because although our services can help improve scarring, they usually require more invasive procedures to get rid of the scarring completely. As you can read in her own words though, she is happy :)
