PATIENT REVIEWS – LASER HAIR REMOVAL
SEEING GREAT RESULTS FROM MY LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENTS
I started going to AMA Skincare for laser hair removal after reading rave reviews on Citysearch. I’m happy I did. Laser hair removal is not cheap – at all – but I am seeing great results, especially when I compare them to a friend who got much cheaper treatments. I’m no expert, but I kinda think you get what you pay for in this case.
The space is quite nice, quiet and private, and there is no hard sell. The nurse who does my laser treatments, Jane, is great: extremely professional and friendly. I’m happy I did it, and plan to go back for other laser treatments.
THEY TAKE SUCH GOOD CARE OF MY SKIN USING THE YAG LASER
This is just my favorite place, period. The experience from the moment you walk in and walk out is tranquil. They are so professional, and attentive to your needs. I first came here for laser hair removal over a year ago, and I’m back, because there just simply isn’t anyone else better for my needs in my opinion.
I am african american and they take such good care of my skin using the Yag laser. Its also important to me to be heard about my concerns for myself, and here you can ask as many questions as you like, I can tell its important to them that you feel comfortable and confident about your experience. “To good to be true” ? …well ..they’re Damn good, and its True. Don’t pass this place up.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL TO REMOVE MY STACHE
The only services I’ve received here were the laser hair removal treatments for my pits and my ‘stache. I was pretty nervous and probably had too many annoying questions but the staff was genuinely helpful, making sure I felt comfortable. I like that the price sheet was clear and they offer discounts if you pay in advance. After the 5th treatment (for the superthickhairones) the price is discounted 50%.
I eased up after my second appointment and really looked forward to coming back. The laser hair removal treatment itself were not painful at all and I was easily in there for only 5 minutes. It just feels like a really quick wet carpet shock. The last hair removal appointment hurt a little bit, but only because she purposely increased the strength of the laser so I wouldn’t have to come back. It kind of smells like burnt popcorn.
The only complaint is that they don’t validate parking and I learned after an appointment that I had pushed to a Saturday, that there’s free parking on weekends!
I NOW HAVE ZERO HAIR… IT’S LIKE THE CHIN I WAS BORN WITH!
I love this place! They have changed my skin to the point when I noticed I hadn’t been in a while – the difference in my skin tone was obvious. I have PCOS and the hair growth on my chin was so bad, that I had consistent breakouts for YEARS, I’m talking since I was 17 years old. I’m 36 now and more or less gave up hope I’d ever be able to get rid of this hormonal side effect without medication. Also, I hated electrolysis which was punching holes into my skin!
I came in for a laser hair removal session and a erbium laser facial. I was skeptical because it was SO expensive, but it was 100% worth it. So worth it. I now feel much more comfortable walking outside without makeup. The hair is 90% gone, when one does grow in it’s FINER to the point I don’t even realize its growing. My chin mind you was something I HID from plain sight for years, I wouldn’t even let men kiss my neck for fear they knew about the stubble! I now have ZERO hair and the infected skin of the hair growing and being removed in a vicious cycle has made my chin go BACK to normal. No discoloration, no dark spots, no enlarged pores, no hair. It’s like the chin I was born with! I cry to even think about how long I held myself back to find a place to help me with this major insecurity!
I’m coming in this week because I’ve been lazy on my maintenance and though the laser is a pain in the ass for recovery (you basically have to stay inside) Im excited for my session because I always feel like even if its been a while this is a place to reset. As an African-American woman – we just have unique skincare needs. I am happy to FINALLY find a place in LA that treats my skin type within my price range. I needed premium esthetic services and derma care, I found it here. I’ll be a customer for as long as they’re in business. If you’re a person of color, I recommend no other facility than AMA Skincare.
Dr. Pien is really cool and knowledgeable. Super helpful and considerate. Carrie at the front desk is great! Really nice and on top of it. Good people.
FABULOUS RESULTS WITH LASER HAIR REMOVAL
I cannot say enough positive things about AMA Skincare. Dr. Pien is amazing and the staff is phenomenal. My experience at the office includes a series of laser hair removal on my bikini and face areas, and facials – with facials comes all the bells and whistles of a true medi spa like photolight therapy and prescription strength creams. I know I know they would gasp! at such language as they do not like me to use such words as ‘medi spa,’ they’d prefer doctors office, but when you are being pampered and ‘beautified’ you can’t help but use the word. This is my review, so I will use my words, after all censorship is despicable.
First of all, I would like to point out that I have had laser hair removal in the past at several different locations before I found AMA Skincare. The first time I had laser treatments was at a dermatologist’s office in Newport Beach. A dermatologist I never saw and never met. The PA did the laser treatment, and failed to give me prep or post op instructions which ended up with me shaving – yes shaving in their bathroom before the treatment, and skin scabbing after the procedure. It was awful and very painful. I endured the pain of the ‘gentlelase’ twice, not to mention the $300 ea treatment, before I came to my senses and looked elsewhere. The second place I found was within Irvine, but they could not maintain the cost of the rented machine and went out of business; I treated there for 2 years, and a nurse or LVN always performed the procedure. Suffice it to say, I have had lots of experience with various kinds of lasers and medical professionals when it comes to laser hair removal.
I decided to check out AMA Skincare because they are located in my business building; what could more convenient right? Then I met Rebecca whom I expected to rush through everything and give me a price. Instead she took her time going over an extensive history of my prior treatments to determine which programs and treatments would benefit me best. She is very professional and extremely knowledgeable. She went through the different types of lasers and hair types and the effects each has on the other and told me what to expect. I was provided with all the prep paperwork and explained everything in great detail. Best thing ever – They NUMB YOU!! before the treatment.
The most impressive thing of all is that Dr. Pien does all the treatments herself. An actual doctor! That is not common in laser hair removal. Dr. Pien is exceptional and thorough. She works meticulously to reach every spot. The results are fabulous. I have seen a dramatic difference in the laser hair removal treatments I have received at AMA Skincare compared to the other places I have been. In less than two treatments almost all the targeted hair is gone. The value can’t be beat.
I highly recommend AMA Skincare for laser hair removal. I even got my sister hooked on this place, along with a few close friends. If you are looking for laser hair removal or a great facial I highly suggest you give them a try.
IT’S VIP TREATMENT ALL THE WAY FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL
LAILA IS ABSOLUTELY AWESOME! If you need any type of skin care or hair removal service, she is definitely the go-to. She knew way more about my skin than any dermatologist or laser hair removal specialist I have ever seen before in the past. Just by looking at me, she knew the right course of action to take. What I really appreciate about her the most is the individualized attention I receive at every single appointment. It’s VIP treatment all the way. She really cares about addressing all my concerns while exceeding my expectations. What more can a patient ask for? I have seen so much improvement since I first began my sessions. My overall results have been absolutely amazing and there isn’t enough times in the world I can say “Thank you” to show my gratitude. I definitely recommend AMA Skincare to anyone who is thinking about coming here. Make sure you ask for Laila!! ;)
ROCK STARS OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL
After receiving laser hair removal treatments from a dermatologist’s office that I was less than thrilled with, I decided to go for a free consultation with AMA Skincare. I had seen an ad in a local magazine for their facility and did the usual Google stalking before paying them a visit.
The woman that gave me my free consultation was nice and the facility was welcoming. I was inquiring about more than one service because, hey, who doesn’t have a list of issues? She gave me pricing for the different laser treatments and directed me as to what to focus on first. I was a little concerned when she never even mentioned the doctor or her name, but I just had a good feeling about the place.
Needless to say, I am on my second area of laser hair removal and Dr. Pien has been amazing! She truly wants you to see results as quickly as possible while also managing expectations.
They offer numbing cream prior to the laser treatment where they have you sit in a room with the most awesome massage chairs. Their pricing is totally reasonable as well. I purchased a package of laser hair removal sessions and any additional session after that was half price. I have on occasion had to wait a little longer than I would like for my session to begin, but I understand they are very busy.
Thank you so much to Dr. Pien for being such a rock star.
THE COST OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL IS AFFORDABLE & PERMANENT
My daughter and I have been going to AMA Skincare on and off for over 10 years for laser hair removal on many different areas of the face and body! The staff is very helpful in obtaining appointments and returning phone calls and you even get a reminder call the day before. I just love seeing Dr. Pien as she’s very knowledgeable and caring and offers advice on whole body health and when I have a Saturday appointment, which is great to have that scheduling option, I see Marlene, who is also awesome!
They also have some great face products for purchase (Epionce and Epicurien) that I’ve come to require for my daily facial care regime and the front office staff and technicians are super helpful. For all of the years and $$$ I’ve spent on waxing, the cost of the laser hair removal is affordable and the best thing is that it’s permanent. I have referred many friends to AMA and wouldn’t think of going anywhere else. Keep up the good work!
