In today’s blog, I am hosting the contribution from our own Anna Maria, who tried out The Perfect Peel for her own acne scarring. She has very kindly agreed to share her story with us here…
“One of the many benefits of working at Vie Aesthetics is that we can often take advantage of many of our own treatments. Just like everyone else, we all have our own worries.
My problem in recent years has been acne and acne scarring. A lot of people suffer from acne in their teenage years, but it is also quite common among adults. It’s caused by the pores in the skin becoming clogged up, resulting in breakouts of pimples. This condition struck me when I was 18 years old, just as I was starting university, and it became quite severe. I am 24 years old now.
After trying out a variety of treatments and several courses of antibiotics, prescribed by my then-dermatologist, I started using Alumier products from the clinic. These helped to keep my active acne under control. Since February 2019, my skin improved massively and I’m delighted to say that I don’t suffer from active acne anymore, barring the occasional hormonal breakout. That has been one major battle won.
Unfortunately, the severity of the condition left me with acne scarring. Scarring is very common for anyone who has suffered from medium to severe acne. Knowing how much this dented my confidence, one of our Skin Therapists Amie Hibbert suggested that I should try the Perfect Peel, which is a brand-new facial peel that was only introduced to the clinic this year.
