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.

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!

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.

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.
