Walked in just to get a facial consultation. Walked out being told that I may have PCOS which is means I have cysts on my ovaries. 70% of women with PCOS have infertility problems. The basis of that assumption? I have peach fuzz on my face and hormonal acne. I mentioned I'm middle eastern so there has always been hair on my body and on my face. And I've had acne on and off since I was a freshman in college. Being told she strongly believes I have PCOS 6 months out to my wedding wasn't the most exciting news to receive at 9AM. Probably won't go back bc the employees rather play doctor than estheticians. Won't recommend this place to my friends or family.
Avante is known to have the most experienced specialists in Houston. We pride ourselves in this. I have spoken with the specialist about this consultation and I want to assure you that in no way was she trying to "play" doctor. Quite the contrary. She was merely giving you her best professional recommendation based on her experience which is over 15 years. Our clients have come to not only expect, but also trust our recommendations. When a client exhibits multiple signs of PCOS, which you have, ie. acne, facial hair growth and loss if scalp hair, we feel it is our professional obligation to recommend you see a physician which is what our specialist did. She truly believed she was doing the absolute best for you, as well as I do. It's what we expect our specialists to do. I know hearing that you could possibly have PCOS would not be something you or anyone would want to hear but with your wedding 6 months out, you have time to get your acne under control and how wonderful that would be to have that done before your wedding. Had our specialist gone ahead and tried to treat your cystic acne it would have made it much worse. With her being as experienced as she is, she knew this. An inexperienced esthetician would possibly have gone ahead and treated you and made it much worse. I wrap this up by saying I wholeheartedly stand behind my specialists recommendation and while as she stated, we are not physicians, I recommend you see one so that you can find out the underlying cause of your acne, get it under control and hopefully you will feel confident to return to have our specialist work with you to give you the beautiful skin I know you want for your wedding and I know she will be able to help with.
