My skin before I started the image skincare course & Peels
As a teenager, I never really had issues with my skin. I would rarely take my makeup off …. or use skin friendly products. OH, those were the days! When I could eat, drink and put whatever I wanted on my skin. As I got a little older and wiser I started listening to my best friend Sabi about not leaving my makeup on after nights, about drinking plenty of water and about wearing suncream.
A couple of years later I drink a large latte and this results in a breakout. My skin went from being calm and clear with the very odd breakout to erratic and problematic. I am really not sure why or what brought these problems on. I couldn’t understand why I was having pubescent breakouts in my 20’s? Anyone care to explain this? I got to a point last summer where I was really unhappy and self-conscious about my skin. I decided enough was enough. I started researching online to find out what were the latest treatments for acne scarring and to help clear up the congested skin.
Taken a few days after my first Image acne lift peel. You can see a massive difference in terms of congestion and even skin tone. Still some dry patches but overall a huge difference.
After a quick google search, I came across Renew Aesthetic skin clinic in Dublin. I read a couple of testimonials and I was impressed by the number of services and treatments they offered. I had my first consultation with Nicola from Renew. She asked me what exactly did I want to achieve and what problems did I have with my skin. She did full analysis followed by her recommendation, which was the Image acne peels whilst using the Image products. I had originally wanted to go try laser resurfacing, but Nicola recommended that I go for the Image Acne peel. Initially, I was a little worried that this treatment would not be strong enough to get the results I desire. but I trusted what Nicola’s recommendation.
I was recommended to use the Image Clear Cell Cleanser which is a salicylic based cleanser. I was also recommended to use the Image ageless total retinol-A creme and serum 10 skinceuticals. Along with that, I was recommended to do a course of Image acne peels. So how does Image acne lift work? The Image peel contains a high grade of cosmeceutical skin peel which is a resurfacing treatment that draws out deep-rooted impurities and greatly improves and enhances the quality of your skin.
Taken just after my second Image acne lift peel
Taken just after my third Image acne lift peel, I really noticed the difference here. My chin has no inflammation or outbreaks what so ever. You can see a noticeable difference in some of my acne scarring too.
In preparation for my first image skin peel, I was instructed to use the Clear Cell cleanser every morning and evening followed by the serum 10 and to use the matte Spf moisturiser when going out in the sun. I was told to use the total retinol-A creme once a week at night time at the start and increase the usage as my skin got used to it. I followed this routine for two weeks before my first peel. The first Image acne lift peel, I was both nervous and excited to have the treatment. I had to get it done on my lunch break so I was a little worried about how red my face would be going back to work. The treatment took about a half hour and it started with a double cleanse followed by the peel. Once the peel was applied I began to feel a tingling and warm sensation, it wasn’t too uncomfortable. It was left on for about minute or two and then it was washed off. This was followed by some moisturiser and suncream. A few days after my first peel I really began to notice the difference. I had a lot of small under the skin bumps/spots on my forehead that were completely gone. On my chin and particularly around my mouth I noticed that the surface was less congested with the scarring a lot less noticeable

A couple of weeks later I had the second and third Image acne peel. In between the first and second peel, I had one break out, but this was different to my normal breakouts, why you ask? Before using the Image range and having the peels I would have maybe 3-4 breakouts a month which would sometimes be quite aggressive and last for a few days. But after 6-8 weeks I noticed that was reduced to one or two breakouts and they very mild in comparison to the type of breakouts I had before.
So what’s my verdict on both the Image skincare line and the image skin peels? I have one regret and that’s that I did not try both treatments sooner. I have seen such a difference and improvement in both my skin condition and appearance. I have also moved away from using heavy liquid foundations and started to use mineral foundations. I would urge anyone who is unhappy or self-conscious with their skin to try the Image line and if needs be the try the Image peels at Renew Aesthetic Clinic.
