Transformation Tuesday: Acne Scarring

Alongside acne scarring, this client was experiencing congestion in the skin, alongside enlarged pores and a thickened epidermis. We recommended a new skincare regime, together with a bespoke treatment programme, which was designed to repair the skin’s barrier, refine the epidermis and improve the thickness of the dermis, reduce congestion and scarring, as well as improving overall skin luminosity, tone and texture.

We treated the skin with Advanced Clarifying Acne facials every 4-6 weeks to clear congestion and stimulate cell turnover. We then followed this with a course of Advanced Microneedling with Growth Factors treatments to reduce acne scarring, minimise large pores and to provide further rejuvenation. 

The results we managed to achieve in just a few months were extraordinary. Here’s what our lovely client had to say about it: “Natalia and the Kate Kerr team have completely transformed my skin! While I originally came to the clinic for concerns about old acne scarring, they have done so much more to improve the overall quality and health of my skin. I regularly get compliments and have friends ask what I do for my skin. For someone used to feeling insecure about their skin, it is really incredible to feel confident about it. Throughout all of our treatments, Natalia has taken the utmost care and I have complete trust in her. I would highly recommend anyone looking to improve their skin to see the Kate Kerr team.”

My Skincare Journey: “Getting my acne under control completely changed my life”

Sometimes, it can feel like you’ve tried everything and nothing works; no one seems to understand your skin and what it needs. That was certainly the case for Julia, who came to see Kate at Kate Kerr London after battling with acne for years. She tried every over-the-counter product available, saw various dermatologists, took roaccutane medication and had steroid injections in her face, but still she suffered with acne breakouts and twice experienced cystic acne that lasted for nine months. 

Kate recommended a series of Clinical Clarifying facials, which are designed to actively target the four contributing factors that lead to the onset of acne. These are excess sebum, impaired cell renewal, proliferation of acne bacteria and inflammation. Her facial was specifically tailored to her skin’s unique needs and a key step was extraction, removing all of the impurities within the skin that lead to breakout. It combined a sulfur mask to help cleanse the skin and minimise oil production along with blue LED light to help calm inflammation and destroy the acne bacteria that leads to breakouts. We also carried out tailored peels that helped to re-texturise the skin and fade discolouration caused by previous breakouts. 

Fast forward a couple of months and Julia’s skin is even in colour and texture, she has minimal breakouts and a luminous glow. “I noticed improvements to my skin relatively quickly,” says Julia. “It was not long after seeing Kate for the first time and using all the products at home that I noticed I had a good glow to my skin. It took maybe a couple of months before the spots were really starting to get under control and it was then that I started to feel that my skin was a lot more predictable.”

So how does Julia feel about her skin now? “My skin now is the best it’s ever been. I don’t really think about it! I recently got married and was really happy with how I looked on the day. I get the odd breakout hormonally, but they’re very small and very manageable. I get compliments on my skin now, which is something that teenage Julia would have never thought she would get! The change in my skin has impacted my confidence massively. I rarely think about my skin, unless I’m coming in for an appointment or it’s the morning or the evening and I’m washing my face. I just go about with my life day to day…and I think that’s the biggest difference. Not worrying about it every day.”

Transformation Tuesday: Treating hormonal acne and scarring

This client came to us at Kate Kerr London to tackle concerns around hormonal acne, chronic inflammation and scarring. We recommended a new skincare regime alongside a bespoke treatment programme, which was designed to repair the skin’s barrier, minimise inflammation, accelerate skin cell turnover and eliminate dead skin cell build up in order to reduce the frequency of breakouts.

We treated the skin with Advanced Clarifying Acne Facials and Advanced Brightening Facials every four weeks to clear congestion and stimulate cell turnover. We then followed this with a course of Advanced Microneedling treatments to reduce acne scarring and to provide further rejuvenation.

The results we achieved in just a few months were exceptional. Here’s what our lovely client had to say about it: “In all honesty, before I came to Kate Kerr, I was on my last straw with my skin. Nothing seemed to work and no one seemed to understand it. Then I met Natalia and I know it seems ‘cliche’, but she changed my life forever. She really knows her stuff; she explained exactly what was going on and what needed to be done about it. Since then, my skin has really changed. I trust whatever Natalia suggests because I know it will work and I’m just so, so grateful that I found her!”
