Katie’s Story

Katie was treated by Dr Sophie as part of a skincare feature run by womens’ health website Healthista.com, to test the effectiveness of NeoStrata Skin Active Tri Therapy Lifting Serum.

‘I had severe acne growing up and suffered terribly with outbreaks and spots as a teenager,’ the 31-year-old married mother of one old remembers. ‘My skin has always been something I have been insecure about, and ever since I could, I have been trying to mask it with make-up, experimenting with different brands and products. The acne has left behind scarring and redness, and I also have pigmentation and discolouration around my eye and on my upper cheek area, which meant I was never completely comfortable going make-up free,’

The texture of her skin was also a cause of concern for Katie who runs her own wedding make up business. ‘When I touched my face, it wasn’t completely soft, but felt rough. To look at, it was dull and unless I put make-up on I just didn’t look radiant or awake.’

Dr Sophie ran the experiment to find out the difference that NeoStrata Skin Active Tri Therapy Lifting Serum would make to Katie’s skin. She used a Visia machine to provide detailed analysis of Katie’s skin before and after use of the product. The Visia machine analysed the skin in detail, including its brightness, pores, texture and UV at the beginning and end of the 4-week experiment.

‘When I first saw Katie’s skin it looked dry and dull and she wore very, very heavy make-up, underneath the surface was uneven, with pigmentation and sun damage – I really wanted to get my hands on her skin as I could see she had no confidence about it, having struggled with skin issues her whole life’ said Dr Sophie.

After 4 weeks Katie really noticed the difference. ‘I didn’t expect the results I got from using one single product. Now, because I have a more even skin tone and an overall more glowing appearance, I use a much lighter make-up and also occasionally go without wearing any at all, which for me is a first. That’s made me so much more confident not only in my skin, but also in myself.’

‘Now I am happy with my skin, Dr Sophie has recommended using my new product only once a day. It’s not free anymore but I will be investing in it because used only once I day I figure it will last me four months this time. I see that as money well spent because I know I am actually doing something good for my skin’.
