Alice

Alice first came to Temple Clinic when she was 16, having heard through her friends how effective the clinic was at managing acne.

Having suffered with spots since starting secondary school, she was desperate to find something that worked. Nothing her GP prescribed, or the chemist had suggested was making a difference and her parents worried that the problems with her skin were seriously affecting her self-confidence. Whenever she had a breakout, Alice was reluctant to go out with her friends and didn’t even want to go to school.

“I wasn't able to leave the house without makeup and wherever I went felt like people were just staring at my spots - this made me feel really self-conscious.”

“I WASN’T ABLE TO LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT MAKEUP. I FELT LIKE PEOPLE WERE STARING AT MY SPOTS - THIS MADE ME FEEL REALLY SELF-CONSCIOUS.”

For Alice, Temple Clinic felt like the answer to her prayers! She felt they really took the time to understand the issues she was having with her skin and everything they suggested made sense.

“The products and treatments I have received from Temple Clinic have helped my skin massively. Recommending a ‘solid skincare routine’ that was simple and not over complicated was really useful. The treatments they provided were really effective in dealing with deeper spots and calming my inflamed skin.”

Alice knew that her skin would not improve overnight and she was encouraged to be patient.

“Results for me didn't come immediately however over a fairly short period of time, I noticed that I was getting fewer spots and they cleared up much more quickly. It’s obvious even to me, that my complexion now is so much better than I had ever imagined possible.”

Over the next few weeks and months, Alice learned how she could make changes to other things in her life which would improve her skin.

“The information I was given by the staff was really helpful - before I went to Temple Clinic I was applying fake tan to my face regularly in attempts to disguise my spots – I learned that this could make things worse and immediately stopped doing this, with good effect!”

“I was advised on how my diet could affect my skin and found it easy to make the small changes to my food choices that have helped my skin to become healthier.”

Alice was encouraged to be actively involved in the treatment of her skin – whilst she attended the clinic for some of her treatments, she was also provided with a LUSTRE SOLO device which allowed her to use light therapy at home.

"I AM BRAVE ENOUGH TO GO OUT WITH NO MAKEUP BUT STILL FEEL COMFORTABLE AND CONFIDENT IN MY APPEARANCE – I NEVER WOULD HAVE BELIEVED THAT WOULD BE POSSIBLE."

“I have definitely seen a difference from using my LUSTRE SOLO. I try to use it when I feel a breakout coming and have noticed that it has even stopped the spots before they have a chance to appear!! There is definitely a difference in the actual lifespan of the spots - they heal faster when I am consistently using the LUSTRE light.”

She also found that using LUSTRE fitted perfectly into her life.

“I found it easy enough to incorporate into my routine as I can use it while doing homework, when I am on social media or even watching TV – and during lockdown it has been a lifesaver – when Temple Clinic was closed, it meant I could still get the benefit of blue light on my skin.”

When Alice was asked what advice she would give to someone suffering with problem skin she replied, “It frustrates me that there is so much misinformation on the internet – advice that could actually make your skin worse. It is really important to seek advice from skincare experts who really know what they are talking about – and doubly important that they make sure the advice is suitable for you. I am so glad that I was recommended to go to Temple Clinic. All the staff at Temple are great at answering any questions I have. Nothing is too much trouble.”

Alice continues to stay in touch with Temple Clinic – she knows that the staff are available for advice and guidance when she needs it.

“My self-esteem and confidence have rocketed over the past few months and I feel happier than I could have imagined about my skin. I no longer worry so much about getting spots and have even been brave enough to go out with no makeup but still feel completely comfortable and confident in my appearance – I never would have believed that would be possible.”
