“Beauty Lies in the eye of the beholder”. Well, with all due respect to Margaret Hungerford, I do not see any beauty in the scars on my face, left behind by these unwelcomed guests, acne, whose visits have become more frequent than usual these days! And although I have always tried to motivate anyone to accept and love themselves the way they are, I also like to encourage people to take care and do whatever they can to maintain a healthy body and skin.
Of late, I have been fretting about this ridiculous acne nuisance on my face. It is usually one or two that appears in a week perhaps, but as a parting gift, each acne has been leaving deep and dark scars behind. To add to my woes, my nose area has visible pore openings and well, pigmentation. I used to seldom wear makeup unless there is an occasion or a photo shoot, but as much as I hate to admit it, I cannot leave home without having a good coverage on my face these days.
In the past few months, I have tried everything to get rid of these scars, from home remedies, expensive face creams and ointments, to consulting a couple of dermatologists, but the results have been zero to below satisfactory, until my visit to the Kosmoderma Skin And Hair Clinic.
It has been a couple of weeks since my last consultation and tell you what, I like what I see. My treatment began with a brief consultation with Dr Neha Gupta, who after carefully analysing my problem areas, suggested a peel and a laser. The peeling began with cleansing, a papaya-pumpkin exfoliation and an amazing aloe vera facial massage, done to help improve blood circulation and release toxins, followed by the laser treatment. The entire procedure took around 1.5-2 hours and believe me, my face has never felt so clean, fresh and rejuvenated before.
I have also been using a few products suggested by the doctor post treatment and I can see a visible reduction in the breakout. The acne scars and pores although have not completely disappeared but have begun to mildly fade out and my skin still feels supple and has a healthy glow.
Also, apart from the wide and the latest variety of hair and skin treatments that they offer and their highly skilled staff, I was extremely impressed with my time spent consulting with Dr Gupta, who not just patiently listened to my issues but answered to every question that I had. I still occasionally receive calls from the clinic as a part of their routine inquiry to find out how the skin is responding to the treatment, which for me is a big deal for it shows they care.
To conclude with, I am an extremely satisfied Kosmoderma client, and all I can say is, I needed this!
