Shannon – Acne Scarring

At the age of 21 I started developed adult acne.  It was quite severe and resulted in deep scars being left on my face. This made me feel very self-conscious and affected how I was feeling generally, in particular really knocking my confidence. So, I spent many months researching the best treatment for acne scarring and having done so, I knew that I wanted a face peel.

After reading an online review by a lady who recommended Dr Sophie Shotter at Illuminate Skin Clinic, I finally booked a consultation appointment to talk about the options available to me.

I arrived at Illuminate and met with Dr Sophie, who sat down with me and spoke about my condition. We discussed the chemoabrasion face peel in depth and decided that this was the best treatment option for my condition.  Dr Sophie talked me through the procedure, the aftercare and the downtime and listened to my worries and concerns, making me feel completely at ease.

The day of my peel came and Dr Sophie explained exactly what she was doing at each stage of the treatment and why she was doing it. After my peel had taken place, a yellow powder was applied to my face to protect it from any infections and to keep my skin dry. I was asked to come back the following day for a check up to make sure everything was progressing as expected and that I was feeling OK. Dr Sophie made me feel completely comfortable during the treatment and after-care and advised I could contact her any time of day or night if I had any pain or concerns once the treatment had taken place.

I was then asked to visit 3 days later for another check up and to help begin the peeling process by applying Vaseline to the edges of the yellow powder applied to protect my skin.

Once my skin started to peel, I could immediately see the amazing results!

I am so grateful that I found Illuminate Skin Clinic.  I am finally confident about my skin again and couldn’t be happier with the treatment I have received.

Thank you!
