Face Reality cleared my skin! This is the place to go for ACNE CURE! – Face Reality is a dream come true!
I had been suffering from acne since I turned 30. For the last few years, I've tried everything you can think of, from dermatologists' office procedures (blue light, peels, facials) to antibiotics to two courses of Accutane to alternative herbal and over the counter medication and therapy, nothing has worked like Face Reality's skin regimen, and nothing has been more economical than Face Reality either!
I was a little skeptical at first, but I figured it's right here in the Bay Area, and prices seemed very reasonable compared to the day spas and dermatologist that I go to, so I figured why not give it a try.
I literally became clear on my 2nd or 3rd visit to Face Reality, and now after 5 visits, I wake up daily AMAZED at how clear and smooth my skin looks!!!
It's literally saved me a lot of money and a lot of agony! The estheticians I have seen are all very professional and skillful at what they do. I'm amazed at how honest they are --they don't want to make money off of you; they just want to get your skin clear!!
I faced acne for the first time as an adult shortly after I moved abroad for work in early 2006 when I started to notice non inflamed acne appearing on my cheeks and forehead. Being 28 years old made the situation embarrassing for me, so I sought out the help of a dermatologist who prescribed me with a benzoyl peroxide wash which helped to clear my forehead, but really did nothing for the impactions on my cheeks. She actually suggested that I try Accutane since the BP didn?t help that much. Luckily, I decided against it and waited till I returned to the US to deal with my problem at Face Reality Skin care. I had read about Face Reality when I was abroad through another website and living relatively close to their clinic I decided to give them a try.
The environment is completely comfortable and friendly. Everyone at FR is professional, up to date with the latest in skin science, and cares about getting your skin healthy. Coming from a science background myself, I found it reassuring to know that they regularly attend conferences and are in contact with leading scientists in the field to keep learning about how they can help their clients skin?I would have to say in my experience they are even more knowledgable and caring than the dermatologist I visited about how to get skin healthy. After going to the clinic for 4 months, my skin is glowing and clear. I can finally go out without being embarrassed or preoccupied with how my skin looks. They are amazing.
If you are facing any kind of acne, Face Reality clinic can help.
A blessing for acne sufferers! – The face reality acne & skincare clinic is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have suffered from acne all of my life and have spent a fortune over the years on products that "claim" to work, only to find out that NOTHING ever cleared up my acne. This past year has been the worst with acne due to a medical condition and trying to bounce back from baby number 2. A friend suggested I see the clinic, but I definitely had my doubts. To my surprise, it was the answer to my acne nightmare. Everyone on the skincare team is polite, caring, helpful and most of all, they provide a sense of hope for what has been a life long challenge for me. I am happy to report that I am clear for the first time ever! I have named Laura the "face goddess", as she truly deserves the highest praises for the work that she and her team does for acne sufferers. It has been a blessing to meet everyone in her clinic and am so grateful for gaining so much knowledge from them about acne. Everyone suffering from acne MUST go and see them!
Miracle! – I live in Georgia and came across Face Reality Acne Clinic's website and decided to check it out. And every day since then I am so happy that I did. When I first emailed Face Reality Skin Clinic and ordered their products I was a little skeptical, only because we live thousands of miles apart. But I can honestly say that the very first day I started using their products and following the routine they gave me, I could tell a noticeable difference. I am only 21 years old but within the last couple of years I have spent thousands and thousands of dollars on treatments and products that never worked for me. And it's hard to believe that just a few conversations with Laura and a few test rounds of the products, I've finally gotten my skin under control by using the right products for my skin type, and it feels great. Because at one point I was just ready to give up. I was so depressed and had absolutely no self-confidence whatsoever, but now I can walk out of my house with no makeup on and feel amazing. So-once again I just want to thank you guys!
my skin looks as if I were 15 years old again!!! (I'm 38 years old now) – I am 38 years old and for the last 23 years I have fought unsuccessfully my acne .. three months ago I went to Face Reality in San Leandro and it was as a miracle; I had my third follo-up appointment two days ago and they told me I didn't need to visit them anymore (very honest!!)
so I can totally and absolutely recommend this Clinic, great location, very professional and my skin looks as if I were 15 years old
thanks to all the Face Reality team!!!

if you have an acne problem this is where you want to go! – i have had an acne problem sence high school, i am now 26 and still have this problem, ive gone to doctors, dermintalogest, tried all kinds of different pills for my ance. though some worked a little , i was still concered with putting these pills in my body, and never had a doctor given me a topical treatment that really worked. one day i heard about Face Reality, and ever sence ive been hook, not only are the people great and helpful but their product really works, and no pills! they are truly concered about each individuals recovery. i highly recommend checking them out if you have an acne problem, they are very informative and have products that actually work!
Sounds too good to be true, but it really does works. – Well, everyone knows the sob story of an acne sufferer, so I?ll spare you all from reading another one.
I found out about Face Reality from a user on a popular acne website. At first I was skeptical, but after reading all the glowing reviews, I was convinced and promptly set up an appointment. That turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. Now, after six to seven years of combating acne on my own (with no luck), I'm thrilled to finally be able to say that I possess the ever-coveted clear skin!
The staff members at Face Reality are very friendly and can empathize because they, too, know what it feels like to have acne; it also helps that they have a wonderful sense of humor. They truly care about each and every one of their clients. And they do weird stuff like notice your new hair cut (I bet the people behind Proactiv, your own dad, or that person you're trying to impress never notice your new hair cut).
But you don't just go, get a regimen and a facial, then disappear off the face of the earth until your next treatment! No--instead, you have to keep in contact with these people all the time since they're a tad nosy and want to know if your skin is okay 'cause they're more into clear skin than you are. No one else ever went through all that trouble for me. My general physician just prescribed me antibiotics and told me to come back in a few months when they ran out!
The price tag may be a little hefty for some people, but believe me (and the 30 people who posted so far) that this quality service is worth every penny. Not only do you get clear skin, you also get peace of mind, which is a plus. I?d give them all the stars in the galaxy but City Search only allows up to five. So come pay these nice people a visit--you won't regret it. Besides, Laura says she's getting bored with me because I have like no pimples left to extract (popping pimples is her *favorite* pastime). ;)
Acne Care that really works – I am the mother of a soon-to-be 16-year-old daughter. From the time she was 11, her skin began breaking out. As she got older, the acne got worse. My lovely, steady, intelligent girl became more and more withdrawn. She avoided social occasions, didn't want to go to school, and didn't want to meet people. We tried everything: over-the counter products, beauty salon products, products advertised on TV, and medical treatments from dermatologists. Nothing worked; in fact, her skin seemed to get worse. When she turned 15, we heard of Face Reality. It took a while for us to convince her to go: "Why?" she said. "Nothing works anyway." But finally she agreed to go in. What she got there was patient, kind, compassionate care and treatment. The people there do not just sell you a product and send you on your way. Instead, they combined in-office treatment with products specific to my daughter's needs; specific directions on product use; advice about diet; and affirmative encouragement: "Don't give up!" Their accessibility, calm kindness, and their matter-of-fact, direct approach with my daughter was invaluable and gave her more than clear skin: they gave her the courage and determination to make a commitment and stick with it. Today, her skin is clear and she SMILES. She has moved on to other teen-age worries, but she handles them with a new confidence gained from the example set by the people at Face Reality. I can't thank them enough for what they did for my lovely daughter. It's so nice to actually "get what you pay for" -- and so much more. Kathryn H.
The folks at Face Reality are experts at getting rid of acne – Laura, Pat, and Julie, of Face Reality Acne & Skin Care, are truly experts in their field. The first time I went in for a consultation and treatment, they spent some time looking at what was going on with my skin, and then they described to me how they were going to tackle my breakouts and keep my skin clear. Through a combination of their treatments in the clinic, and a home regimen that they tailored exactly for how my skin acts, they got my breakouts under control. They really keep careful tabs on my skin, and they tell me exactly what adjustments to make to keep it clear and healthy.
Face Reality does not make false promises -- this clinic focuses on one thing, clearing acne, and they really know how to do that. They are very honest and informative with their clients -- they provide a lot of information about what causes breakouts and what we need to do to help our skin get and stay clear.
Before going to Face Reality, I had spent sooooooooooo much money on every product under the sun -- ProActiv, Retin-A, antibiotics (yuck), and every conceivable soap / lotion / cream that promised to help, but of course nothing did. I also spent a lot of money on the most expensive makeup, and all would just make my breakouts worse, which you can't cover up with any kind of makeup. Laura, Pat, and Julie have now gotten my skin to the point where I don't need to wear makeup, but if I feel like it, they have a fabulous line of makeup that wears very nicely (mineral makeup), and is actually good for my skin!
Like I said, they are truly experts in their field, and I have loved seeing my skin go from being marred by huge constant acne breakouts to clearing up. I have received so many compliments and comments on how good my skin looks, that it amazes me that I waited so long before seeking professional advice and help to get my skin looking good. I an hour and a half away from their office, but its been worth it for me to take the time to get treatment from the best!
The Best Acne Treatment that REALLY works!!! – I have struggled with acne since I was in junior high and like most people went to countless dermatologists who put me on a numerous amounts of antibiotics and topical creams such as retin-a. Once the antibiotics stopped working and I learned more about antibiotic resistance, I turned to advertised products such as Pro-Active, Murad, Exposed Skin Care, even a laser light treatment....nothing worked. As I got older my acne only grew worse and six months before my wedding I went to a dermatologist who told me there was nothing else I could do. I was desperate. One day my mom came across Face Reality online. We gave them a call and were incredibly impressed with their friendliness and genuine desire to help. Not only are they friendly and helpful, they are incredibly knowledgeable about acne and the best ways to treat it! Face Reality skin care clinic is with out a doubt the best treatment for acne because it provides one on one interaction and personalized attention and care to your skin and type of acne. Face Reality works with you and does not just prescribe a general product, they provide a system that will clear your skin. On my wedding day, my skin was completely clear, it had not been like that since junior high This is the first acne treatment that actually does what it claims to do.
I would recomend Face Reality to anyone, especially those who are tired of products that don't work. I have been using their product for a year now and regularly going in for facials and my skin has is like new and completely clear!!! This truly is the best acne treatment you will find, I would recommend them to absolutely anyone. I am so grateful to Face Reality!
