Patient Comments (1)
in Houston, TX |
My results and experience here were nothing short of amazing. The staff is exemplary from top to bottom. I'm an aging Asian male that had facial sun damage over the years accompanied with acne scarring. All of my previous attempts to treat were ineffective. Then I came here. THIS IS THE REAL DEAL, I have had an unbelievable improvement in the clarity of my skin. I can't express enough how pleased I am with the results. Very fortunate to be a patient here. A game changer in my appearance.
