5 out of 5 stars Acne Scars Treatment
I have been seeing Dr. Ahdout for about 4 years now. I have never experienced such care and focused attention from a dermatologist until I met Dr. Ahdout. She really cares and it shows. That's why I keep coming back! She helped me get rid of monthly hormonal cystic acne and my sister sees her too for acne. I have also seen Dr. Ahdout for botox for my forehead lines and lip injections. She...
5 out of 5 stars Laser Treatment
I went to Dr Ahdout in 2014 for a scar on my nose as a result of a nose piercing infection. I was pretty worried, but Dr Ahdout reassured me that a laser would help. 2 sessions later, my scar disappeared. She also answered all my other skin and aging related questions. Very nice doctor, I'd definitely recommend!
5 out of 5 stars Acne Treatment
I had tried everything to get rid of acne, and a series of the best dermatologists in Los Angeles, but finally Dr. Ahdout was able to help me. She is one of the most uniquely caring, intelligent, and rigorous doctors I've ever known, and I feel really fortunate to have her looking after the health of my skin!

I cannot say enough about Dr. Ahdout! So here's my top five list of things I Iove about her... 1. Her warm and caring bedside manner. 2. The problem I've had with dermatologists in the past was that they basically fell into two categories. I've seen derms that had no interest in anything cosmetic and think any concerns you express about your looks vs. your health are completely unimportant and...
5 out of 5 stars Skin Lightening
My skin was so bad with so many dark spots on my face...tried other doctors and multiple products and nothing worked until I found Dr. Ahdout. She is really efficient and prescribes the best products. It only took 2 weeks to see improvements and 2 months for my skin to look 100% better! I am so happy I found her!
5 out of 5 stars Acne Treatment
Dr. Ahdout is the first doctor to find a CURE for my very oily skin. I have been to many BIG names in LA and spent BIG $$$$. Dr. Ahdout has changed my skin and my life. Sorry for the drama but if you have very oily skin you know what I'm talking about! She is also lovely to deal with. She listens carefully and genuinely cares. I strongly recommend her.
5 out of 5 stars Mole Removal
I started seeing Dr. Ahdout a few months ago to treat some very aggressive adult acne and to keep tabs on a few moles that looked suspicious. She is great! Not only is she extremely knowledgeable, her bedside manner is bar none. Dr. Ahdout is incredibly warm and calming yet also maintains the utmost professionalism.
5 out of 5 stars Age Spots Treatment
She utilized, freezing, burning and cutting procedures on my face with a minimum of discomfort, due to her delicate and gentle technique. She is a gifted and skilled physician. Brilliant!
5 out of 5 stars Melasma Treatment
I had a lot of sun damage on my cheeks and all my what I thought were my freckles were getting darker and growing together. I had tried IPL with someone else which I was not a candidate for. I went to Jennifer and have been doing lightening cream for last few months. The results have been amazing and was able to correct a lot of it without a chemical peel or lasers. Amazing Results and...
