We have a lot of success helping people out and thought I might share one story.
Emma came to us in January. She had become frustrated after trying many different treatments with no luck in clearing up her skin, she happened upon one of the blogs written about us and decided to give us a call. After a short conversation she was willing to trust us to look after her skin and help clear her acne.
A little background on Emma.
Her skin was always pretty clear throughout her teenage years, the odd pimple every now and then, but apart from that she had good skin. It was about 2 years ago when she was 24, that her skin started to change. Her forehead was getting congested with whiteheads and blackheads under the skin with some inflammation and the odd pimple. then she noticed some appearing on her chin and then her jaw as well. As you can see from her before photo her forehead ended up quite congested before she came to us.
She had experimented with harsh skincare products, searched You tube videos for tricks to dry out acne, being a vegan she tried going natural and looked at her diet. She had facials (no extractions) and when all else failed- covered everything up with make-up.
Her treatment plan
On her first visit to us she had our Shine Skin Solutions treatment where we took the time to go through her history- we looked at her current skincare (which wasn’t too bad, just not enough active ingredients) and checked all her makeup, went over her diet, medication and health and lifestyle.
We started off with extractions and added a near infra-red LED light therapy. This consists off cleansing, exfoliating, steam and deep cleanser, then a long extraction session ending in the near infrared LED light to speed up the healing process and the calm down the inflammation.
Emma came back 2 weeks later for an extraction facial followed by LED. The results of her first facial blew us both away. She had probably about an 80% clearance from the one facial.
Now this doesn’t happen for everyone, it can depend on the cause of their acne. For Emma- we couldn’t really pinpoint a reason, from having such amazing clearance in one facial normally points to something has happened to cause a spike in bacteria/inflammation in the skin, then it has just gotten out of control and become more of a bacterial issue.
She was happy with the results- but she was going to USA for a month. We were both a little worried about how the condition of her skin would be on her return.
Her skin did re-lapsed while in America. She brought a few products that contained BHA’s that made her skin purge toxins and breakout. After a frantic email, we took a couple of the products out of her routine and that calmed her skin down a little.
On her return in Feb her third visit, her skin was not as bad as we expected it to be. She had breakouts on her forehead we did an Extraction facial for a good clean out and to get her skin back into control again finished off with an LED.
We have continued with her treatment plan of Extraction facial with LED every 2 weeks for 4 sessions, then out to 3 weeks now on to every 4 weeks.
It’s a credit to Emma that she saw it through (stayed committed to her treatments) many people in her situation would have stopped after the first facial after seeing massive improvements with their skin. but we need to keep facials going to ensure we stop the issue from coming back.
Emma now comes for monthly facials and as she has used up her old skincare has introduced new products perfectly suited to be active enough without causing dryness or sensitivity.
Read her review below.
Hurry up and make an appointment if you’re struggling with acne or congested skin! When I first called Sheridan I was literally in tears of frustration with my skin especially my forehead. After years of having crystal clear skin all of a sudden no amount of expensive products or tricks would clear my bumpy spotty forehead. Sheridan and her team understood exactly what I was going through, gave me great advice and went through all of my products and told me which ones I could keep and which wouldn’t work for me without ever selling me anything unnecessary. Her expert extraction facials have turned everything around! It’s a process and I’m still having treatments but I can overstate the improvement not just in my skins appearance but my confidence and happiness knowing when my skin plays up I have an expert I can trust to help me. Stop wasting your time and money elsewhere and get the pros to help you out. You’ll wish you had done it sooner, I know I Do! Thank you Shine!
If you have been struggling book an appointment and come in and see us.
