I’ve suffered from acne from the age of 13 and have tried various treatments, from oral antibiotics to topical medications, neither of which were very successful. Approximately 18 months ago I decided to try facials and microdermabrasion to help alleviate the scarring, and I found the effects lasted only a few weeks. The treatments were very superficial. I felt like I needed to try something that would work quickly as I’m getting married in August. That’s when I decided to contact Patti, who will be doing my makeup for the wedding and get advice on what she thought would help improve my skin.
I was aware she ran the Skin Rejuvenation Clinic but didn’t know anything about the treatments available, and in all honesty, I was far too hesitant to consider something only a couple of months before the big day. Patti reassured me and recommended the micro-needling treatment as a treatment that would give me the results I had been pining for, for years.
I was nervous as I had a low pain threshold and assumed the needling would be painful, but this treatment does not hurt at all! With the numbing cream on, you don’t feel a thing. Within 2-3 weeks of having had the treatment, my skin tone appeared more even with a reduction in the size of my pores and the scarring was less visible. From someone who never left the house without foundation on, I am now in a position where I haven’t worn makeup in weeks, and I feel more confident to do so. Microneedling works much more in-depth, as it goes deep into the dermal layers of the skin and the results are visible to see. I’ve had compliments from family and friends on my skin “looking better”, and I would highly recommend Micro needling to anyone with scarring or acne issues. Thank you, Patti, I now look forward to you glamming me up on the wedding day!
