Acne Journey: Becky’s DermaQuest peel
“My skin looked luminous and felt brand new”
Becky, 21, suffers from acne-prone skin and has regular breakouts. She has tried a number of different products and treatments to manage the condition, with little success, so came along to see the acne experts at sk:n to find out if they could advise her on finding a more effective acne-management solution. Here, she shares her initial thoughts after trying a DermaQuest skin peel treatment.
My acne-prone skin has been an ongoing problem for a while now. I had tried a number of different treatments, but they didn’t quite give me the results I was looking for. I had also used a range of cleansers and moisturisers to try and tackle the problem, but was looking to add something extra to my skincare regime to really break the acne cycle.
The products sk:n recommended I use in preparation were brilliant – especially the B5 serum – they made my skin feel very clean, slightly firmer and very smooth. The facial wash was very good, but I used a makeup remover pre-cleanse, which seemed to be better at removing makeup than using the facial wash on its own (as advised by my sk:n consultant.)
During my consultation, my skin was examined and I was given details of how to use the DermaQuest products and information on the benefits I could expect from using them. My face was then thoroughly cleansed, ready for the peel.
My skin felt very warm for a couple of hours after the peel treatment. It initially felt very smooth, but for the following three days it became red and sore in parts, which I was told was normal – this was all part of the peeling process. My skin looked luminous and felt brand new after it had peeled and I received many comments about how good it looked!
I received a good service at sk:n and would definitely recommend it to others. The environment was professional and friendly, the staff were knowledgeable and I felt very comfortable there.
