After having tried medication from the doctor and several different skin care regimes that were supposed to help but didn’t, I decided that more significant action was required if my skin was to be closer to what I’d dreamt of for my wedding. Therefore, I made an appointment and went to see Dr Sam at Temple Clinic who explained what she thought would help my skin, explaining acne and the treatments we were going to try in very easy to understand analogies.
Immediately, I started using the skincare that was recommended - I only had 10 weeks from my first appointment to my wedding day, so we were on a tight schedule to begin to see results; but within a few weeks, I could see and feel a big difference in my skin!
My skin felt cleaner, seemed visibly clearer and spots seemed to be less frequent than previously – and those spots that I did have, cleared up a lot quicker than they used to. The medicated skincare was also combined with a package of Omnilux red and blue light treatments and some acne specific skin peels to try and reduce the redness in my skin, and to help manage the symptoms of acne. I also chose to buy the single LUSTRE clearskin SOLO device which was a small blue light treatment that I could use a much as I wanted to at home – I was using this up to 3 times a day on areas I was particularly self-conscious about, and on breakout areas – on my cheeks and chin.
