Acne & Acne Scarring – patient experience

November 25, 2015 11:02 am Published by

Read and watch Katie’s testimonial below, who has had her acne and acne scarring addressed using a combination approach of topical skincare, facial treatments and microneedling:

“Before using iS clinical I was extremely self conscious of my appearance as I would get the odd acne breakout, and had some acne scars which I wasn’t happy with. I would never leave the house without a full face of make up. I struggled even taking off my make up in front of people even if it was in the comfort of my own home.

After only a few weeks I noticed a massive difference with my skin, the texture was smoother and a lot flatter, the colour in my skin was more even and clear. This was only the beginning. After a month or so I saw continued improvement, my skin is squeaky clean and almost glowing. I began to get constant compliments about the appearance of my skin, with friends asking what foundation I have been using and how my skin looks so flawless and glowing.

The most impressive thing was that I wasn’t wearing any foundation at all. I have completely stopped using foundation now because of the iS Clinical skin products and I feel confident to not put any make up on to go out. My skin has never felt or looked so good.”

Katie, 19, Beaconsfield

Our patient Katie came to us as she was unhappy with her skin. She had suffered with severe acne throughout her teens and eventually underwent treatment with Roaccutane to treat this. There were some residual acne breakouts after she had finished this treatment, as well as redness to her skin due to the inflammation that the years of acne had caused. She was also very self conscious about the acne scarring on her face which made her always cover her face with make-up.

Acne is a skin condition which affects many of us, at various stages of life. Commonly linked with changes to hormone levels during puberty, adult acne can also affect many people throughout their life.

At S-Thetics we have a range of advanced treatments which can manage not only active acne but also help reduce acne scarring, using devices, topical cosmeceutical skincare and facial treatments.

We believe in a multi-disciplinary approach to managing your skin conditions. We will start the treatment plan first by carrying out a detailed consultation, facial assessment as well as a VISIA digital skin analysis.
