Sincere apologies for the delay in sending you this review, but it now gives me great pleasure to do so…
Vicky asked if I would write a review on the acne treatment my daughter Jenny has received and I am more than happy to do so. This treatment really does work and I now have an ‘acne and scar free’ daughter, but more importantly, a happy daughter, with her self esteem restored!
Here’s our story…
My daughter Jenny started getting the odd spot at the beginning of her second year at high school (aged 12) and by the end of that school year it had developed into full blown acne! By this time, we had exhausted all the ‘off the shelf’ products you can buy and decided to seek medical advice. Success!… but, not for long! Jenny was prescribed numerous antibiotics that all worked initially, then it was back to square one (on reflection, this is a good thing, because, as we all know, long term antibiotics are not good for you). Another year passed and our GP referred us to a Dermatologist at the local hospital, but unfortunately the treatment didn’t work. If you are a mum with a teenager going through this, or indeed, going through it yourself, you can appreciate how we were getting desperate at this stage, so desperate in fact, that we even considered Roaccutane, but we really didn’t want to go down that path, due to the side effects.
We kept scouring the internet, but in vain, and I was getting increasingly concerned, as I could see my daughter’s self esteem was getting lower and lower.
THEN…. I happened to mention it to my hairdresser and she suggested trying Vicky. As you can imagine, I was very sceptical, because there are a lot of claims out there about ‘curing’ acne, but of course, a lot of them are simply not true. Jenny was now 15 and becoming extremely self conscious, so I thought, why not give it a go?
Somewhat reluctantly, we both went along for Vicky’s first consultation. She did a thorough assessment and explained fully the treatment, the time scales and the commitment required from Jenny. She promised (yes, promised) she could get rid of Jenny’s acne, but she couldn’t promise that Jenny would never have another spot … music to our ears! Here was someone, for the first time, giving us the facts, not dressing it up. We were absolutely fine with the odd spot – they are normal and everyone gets them at certain times of their lives for various reasons.
So, we decided to give it a go. As I mentioned earlier, this requires full commitment from you, the client. It’s not just a case of going along to Vicky for your treatment, then forgetting about it until the next time. No, it requires dedication to a daily cleansing routine both morning and night, and a weekly deep cleansing routine. To her credit, Jenny followed her routine to the letter (she so wanted this to work) and all the time, had 110% support from Vicky.
I really can’t commend Vicky enough on her dedication to her clients. She is not your 9 – 5, she is always at the other end of the phone to give advice and support when needed, goes that extra mile – her customer service is second to none.
In a nutshell, she knows her ‘stuff ‘… what she said would happen – did and just as important, within the time scales she gave.
Finally, As I’m writing this and reflecting, I remember how Jenny would never go out without plastering loads of concealer and foundation to cover up her acne and scarring, but now I’m delighted to say, she hardly wears any make up and just uses it to enhance!
