Get the tissues ready, this one’s a tear jerker.
Looking at this photo of Gracie, it is hard to believe that this beautiful teenager once hid her stunning face from the world. As many of you can relate to, the acne she had struggled with for years was shattering her self-confidence. But this story does have a happy ending, we promise!
Before you came to Euphoria Skin, how did your skin make you feel?
Self-conscious. I felt like everyone was looking at my bumpy skin all the time. I couldn’t wear makeup without it making my skin look worse, but I desperately wanted to cover it and I would always wear my hair covering my face. Thinking back, it makes me want to cry. It was all I would think about before leaving the house.
How did you come across Euphoria Skin and why did you seek our help?
I WAS OVER IT! I had tried so many other treatments and even resorted to medication to fix my acne and to be honest, I found it hard to believe it would be any different at Euphoria Skin. I had been following Skin Fairy on Instagram and saw the results DMK was giving their clients. I then was then on the search for the closest DMK clinic to me, that’s how I came across Euphoria Skin.
How did you feel when you came into Euphoria Skin for your first visit and consult?
I did have reservations, as I’d tried so many different avenues to fix my skin in the past. My dream was to have clear skin for my school formal. I found it hard to believe that I would get results in time for my formal as it was only 4 months away. But I had complete trust in Natalie even from my first consult, because she clearly knew what she was talking about.
When did you begin to believe that you may just get those results you had been searching for?
It wasn’t until after my first few treatments that I began to see my skin improving. Natalie showed me a side by side before and after photo and the results were obvious. My breakouts were less red and angry and my skin was starting to feel less bumpy.
Do you think having a goal to work towards (your school formal) helped to keep you hopeful that you would see results?
Yes definitely! No one else at any other clinics had ever set a goal like that for me. Plus having my appointments organised from the get go really helped me stay on track and keep motivated.
How do you feel about your skin now?
I just feel so much more confident in general now that my skin is a lot clearer. I don’t feel self-conscious in conversations with people and if people come over my house last minute, I don’t need to worry about putting make up on. There was a time where I didn’t post on Instagram for a whole year between 2017-2018 because I felt like my acne was so obvious in every photo of me.
I’m so much happier now that acne isn’t controlling how I do day to day things anymore!
Gracie with her beautiful sister
May 2018 – September 2018
These incredible results are in just under 4 months! As we know skin best, we were excited to work with Gracie to improve the breakouts, buildup of keratin and also eventually the scarring caused by her acne. We have begun Gracie’s journey, which is focused to REMOVE and REBUILD her skin with weekly Enzyme Therapy then moving onto fortnightly treatments which included Dermapen Skin Needling Treatments and further Enzyme Therapy, restoring the skin to its optimal function. Gracie took care of the MAINTAIN & PROTECT stage at home by using her prescribed skincare products.
