PATIENT REVIEWS – STRETCH MARK REDUCTION
MY STRETCH MARKS ARE PRACTICALLY GONE AFTER TREATMENT
This place is amazing and a one in a million find. When I first walked through the door I was taken aback by the beauty of their office. So much so that I had to take photos to share.
I first came in about 6 months ago to have a consultation for stretch marks that have been bothering for a few years now. The consultation with Dr. Milgrom was extremely informative. He was able to tell me exactly how to get rid of stretch marks. He spent an hour with me answering the many questions I had and explaining how the lasers interact with my skin. I felt very comfortable with everything and booked my first stretch mark removal treatment that day. What I really liked is that they charge per treatment. That way I can spread the cost out over time and only pay for what my body needs.
Prior to the stretch mark removal treatments they apply numbing cream and have you relax in a room they call the sanctuary. The atmosphere and massage chairs are amazing and really helped to rid me of any anxiety I had being this was my first experience with lasers.
The stretch mark removal treatment was way more comfortable than what I was expecting. The numbing cream works like a charm! Dr Pien performed the procedure. She makes you feel so comfortable and talks you through everything that is happening.
So far I’ve had 4 stretch mark removal treatments and I am extremely happy with the results. My stretch marks are barely visible. What amazed me the most was how smooth my skin feels now. Im considering having another treatment to further the healing of my stretch marks but at this point I think I’ll wait and see how the healing progresses over the next few months. The doctors explained to me that my skin will continue to remodel and heal itself for months after the treatment.
The only thing that concerned me at first is that my stretch marks got darker after the first couple of treatments. The doctors explained to me that this is normal as my body is is directing all its resources to the area in order to heal it. They weren’t kidding. I stuck with it and am so happy that I did! Dr Pien worked her magic and my stretch marks are practically gone!
I FOUND THE PERFECT PLACE FOR STRETCH MARK REMOVAL
After years of searching reviews on stretch mark removal, watching different videos of procedures, and contemplating if it was a procedure I was willing to undergo, I FINALLY found the PERFECT place.
When I made my first call to AMA skincare, I spoke with one of the lovely receptionists who was very informative and understanding of my condition. She scheduled my initial appointment with DR. Milgrom ASAP and I was seen 2 weeks later. Upon arriving at the office in Santa Monica, I was welcomed into a serene and tranquil setting with a friendly and inviting office staff who were truly caring and professional. I relaxed in an amazing massage chair and was offered a refreshment until Dr. Milgrom came in to speak with me about the stretch mark removal procedure.
When the Dr. came in, he was very personable; took the time to draw me a diagram of how stretch mark removal typically works and the type of lasers AMA had available. After I spoke with Dr. Milgrom, I met with Dr. Pien. The entire staff is incredibly sweet and Its the first time I can say I actually LOVE making a trip to the Dr’s office. I’ve only been to two laser treatments and one Collagen Induction Therapy, and have already noticed results! My stretch marks are incredibly lighter, and a lot less noticeable. Before when I would look in the mirror, my eyes would focus straight to my thighs, sides, and chest where I am receiving laser treatments. Now when I look in the mirror, I can barely see them. I can still notice them when I look straight at my skin, but am still expecting three more stretch mark removal treatments, although I don’t know I will need all five ;).
I agree with Lynette’s reviews regarding the caring staff and rewarding experience of AMA Skincare. The only inconvenience I have is that I live in Bakersfield, and the trip takes 2 to 3 hours depending on traffic. BUT TOTALLY WORTH THE DRIVE. The prices are comparative considering other offices that charge by the laser and not by the time. DR. Pien has a steady and experienced hand, and I appreciate all of the Staff’s help in wanting to truly make me feel beautiful and more confident, inside and out.
THANK YOU EVERYONE AT AMA Skincare!
MY SKIN IS CLEAR AND THE STRETCH MARKS ARE VIRTUALLY INVISIBLE
First of all just want to say that Dr. Pien is amazing! I have been a patient at AMA for a little over 2 years and have gotten amazing results. I live in AZ. and fly out to CA. because I’ve tried many different places in AZ. and have not had any success.
I’ve been getting treatments on my face for dark spots and melasma, and also for stretch marks on my stomach and lower back. I’m disappointed that I waited so long to get the stretch mark treatment done because I hated the way they looked and just assumed I would have to live with them.
The end results are better than I’d hoped for, my skin is clear and my stretch marks are virtually invisible, I would highly recommend this place! The results speak for themselves. Thanks AMA for your superior service!!
I SEE MAJOR DRAMATIC CHANGES IN MY STRETCH MARKS
I have been battling with stretch marks for almost 6 years. My stretch marks are located on the back of my calves. I have been using the palmers cocoa butter and some other products. I have visited Epione 6 times. I have paid 1,400.00 for each stretch mark removal treatment. You do the math. I honestly said, ” I’m just going to fall in love with my stretch marks” I am never going to see another doctor.
I’ll never forget this day, I was on my computer and came across AMA Skincare. I started to read about Dr. Pien and her theory of treating the stretch marks. She sounded like she knew what she was talking about. I wanted to meet her and tell her my experience. I wanted to ask her if she could give me hope or should I just fall in love with my stretch marks. Dr. Pien without any hesitation said, “she could help me” but, I had to follow her stretch mark treatment guidelines before and after treatment. I was so excited to hear that and at the same time I said, but, “I heard this line before”. Guess what !! I trusted her word went in twice to her Beverly Hills location.
I see major dramatic changes into the size of the stretch marks and the appearance of the stretch marks. AMA SKINCARE IS THE TRUTH. I highly recommend this place. AMA Skincare continues to be at the top of the list of best skin care offices in the state of California at least in my opinion.
P.S. The staff is so nice and caring. Thank you Dr. PIEN, Lanna and Kerri. Also AMA Skincare’s prices are very reasonable.
GREAT LASER TREATMENT FOR STRETCH MARK REMOVAL
I’ve had stretch marks ever since puberty and they are really embarrassing specially because they’re on my arms and lower back. I couldn’t wear sleeve less tops or dress coz i have to hide them. I’ve wasted so much time and money on soo many different creams that even work at all. Its sad that i didn’t find this place right away. My treatment consisted of 3 laser and collagen induction therapy (CIT) in between and i have to say that after just the first laser and CIT microneedling treatment i already saw dramatic results!! My stretch marks faded so much that Dr Pien already had a hard time seeing them on my second stretch mark removal treatment!
The whole staff is very accommodating and very nice. They are all knowledgable in what they do. Dr Milgrom and Dr Pien really take time to explain the whole stretch mark procedure and answer any questions. They all really pamper u and will make u feel comfortable from the time u walk in.
Their services are very effective because they have a whole lot of different lasers (unlike other places, and yes ive done my research) because as Dr Milgrom explained, there are specific lasers that ur skin needs depending on its condition. They’re also the only place i found that combine Laser and Collagen Induction therapy. Their prices are very competitive and well worth it.
I am very happy i found this place and would definitely recommend it to everyone!
GREAT OVERALL EXPERIENCE WITH STRETCH MARK REMOVAL
Dr. Milgrom and his staff are extremely knowledgeable about their procedures and are able to offer a variety of options to customize the experience.
After giving birth to my second child I had several stretch marks across my abdomen and sides. After the first laser stretch mark treatment I was able to see results. I have had a total of 3 treatments and my stretch marks are practically non-existent. My husband has to look extremely close to see anything. I would strongly recommend this laser treatment to any mother out there who desires to regain her pre-pregnant body.
- Pros: Great staff, free consult, and parking validation
