Chasity, Austin Texas
I was referred to Alissa by both my gynecologist and dermatologist. I am thrilled with my new complexion, and getting ready in the morning is so easy now because I don’t have to layer on the concealer. I can sweat it out in the gym and not have to worry about getting any new breakouts. Thank you, Alissa!
Brooke, Austin Texas
My acne is a truly persistent beast. Alissa was able to pinpoint what was causing my acne and gave me safe replacements. I kid you not, my skin cleared up in a few weeks! After 20 YEARS of searching, I finally found my miracle. I’m truly astounded and so grateful to have found Alissa.
Meg, Austin Texas
I cannot sing the praises of Alissa enough. I am clear after twelve years of misery with cystic and hormonal acne that plagued me for most of my childhood and young adulthood. Years later, I’m still loving my skin. I never wear makeup anymore and my quality of life has just improved so much. Alissa has been a lifesaver in every way.
Annabelle, Kennebunk, Maine
Alissa has excellent knowledge and absolutely cares about you getting results. She works hard for you to have great skin. I’m that girl that used to have acne, instead of the girl that has acne. It’s a great feeling!
Meg, Houston Texas
I moved to Texas from Colorado when I experienced the worst breakout I have had in my life. I was in a new town and didn’t want to leave the house because my face was in such bad shape. I cried almost every morning when I looked at my face. It hurt to smile, talk, and eat. Alissa has given me the confidence to go back out in public, meet new people, and experience Austin!
Stephanie, San Francisco CA
I am a 42 year old female who struggled with acne for years. I had someone tell me for the first time in my life that my skin was glowing only 3 weeks after my first appointment with Alissa. I hear it ALL the time! The days I run around Austin without makeup, in my workout clothes, as so many moms do….I am proud to be makeup free!
