|Patient with acne before Clarisonic|
Having Acne in Your 30sFlash forward to my 30s. Literally, overnight, I started to develop acne again. It seemed as if my skin had a meeting and said, “Hey, let’s get a giant cluster of pimples on both cheeks near the jawline, add a few on the forehead and let’s go ahead and throw in a bunch of blackheads on the nose and under the eyes.”
About three months ago, I made an appointment to see Dr. Obi. He told me that when some women age, it becomes harder for them to exfoliate and get rid of dead skin cells and that since my sebaceous glands (oil glands) were putting in double time, it was creating the perfect storm of bacteria in my pores – hence my acne. He recommended that I make an appointment with Denise at the med spa and have her give me a thorough cleaning.
My Experience with the Vitalize Peel
Investing in the ClarisonicDenise recommended that after I peeled completely, that I should invest in a Clarisonic. I was a little hesitant at first because of the price but I had often heard from friends that the “only problem you’ll have with your Clarisonic is you’ll wish you bought one sooner.” So I went ahead, bit the bullet and bought one from Dr. Obi's med spa.
It’s been about two months since my Vitalize Peel and I can honestly say it’s been about two months of pure skin bliss! Never in my entire life of purchasing beauty products (and if you’re a woman, you know that’s a lot of dough) have I ever come across a product so wonderful – well, besides my Chi. I have gotten compliments from friends saying how I look like I’m glowing. And the best part is, I don’t know how, but my pores have not only shrunk in size but my oil glands have settled. I don’t get that “oil sheen” until about 5 pm everyday – whereas I used to get it about an hour after washing and cleaning my face.
If I can make any recommendations for women suffering from the same skin issues, it’s to do the same as I did. Invest the time and money. It’s well worth! And I wouldn’t recommend anyone but Denise and the gang at the Renaissance Center for Cosmetic Renewal to do so.
