In my time in this industry I have met both adults and teenagers suffering from low self esteem as a knock-on effect of their acne. Some of my best experiences of treating patients where with these people. Not only did we change their skin, but we achieved the ultimate and changed their lives and it’s those experiences that bring the utmost satisfaction for me. Some patients had taken oral medication as prescribed by their GP or topical creams and others were put on contraceptive pills in order to try and resolve their skin issues. I have also met individuals who as an impact of their acne, had suffered or were suffering from depression and anxiety. I met teenagers who were isolating themselves in their bedrooms and detaching from friends and family, because the impact of acne is very real and can be confidence crushing for some. These are the patients that are most rewarding, as when results start to show, so does their personality and confidence and they start to bloom right in front of you.
Factors that can cause and worsen acne include excess oil production, follicles clogged by oil and dead skin cells, bacteria, hormones, medication, diet and stress. We need to take all of these into account when assessing the skin and the best course of action for the patient in question. So why are our products different? Because they include medical ingredients and most of them require a prescription from a medical professional. The ingredients are very potent, because they have a tough job to do and they must have the ability to penetrate the skin deep enough to change the function of the cells and how they are performing. Ingredients that are used in these products are amongst some of the most expensive in the world. The percentage of the ingredients can be high, therefore they are unaffordable for the NHS and unavailable from your GP.
