I moved to Boston from Brooklyn about a year and a half ago and my skin was not happy and nothing I was trying (different face washes, routines, pro-activ, masks, pretty much everything ) was making it worse. My skin got totally out of control from acne to acne scars to uneven skin tone. I was feeling really terrible about the state of my face/skin. I was feeling almost hopeless until I decided it might be a good idea to try to find a good doctor / aesthetician team and saw all of these amazing reviews for Sound Shapes.  Sound Shapes was my last hope and after just 2 custom facial treatments, 1 laser, and 2 micro-needling in 3 1/2 months I am as clear as if someone photo shopped me! Thank you for giving me back my confidence. I have never had more self esteem in my life. ~ YELP
