Finding the perfect gift is such a relief.

Wednesday, 15 October 2014

I have finally decided to bite the billet and buy my Husband the perfect Christmas gift. It is a little unconventional to say the least but it will really be welcomed.

What on earth is it I hear you ask?! It is a voucher for a clinic calked sk:n who provide acne scarring treatments.

These are the two options I think they will choose from as it is old scarring from his teenage years rather than him currently suffering from Adult acne.

Salicylic Skin Peel:

"This advanced chemical skin peel is perfect for helping acne. The Beta Hydroxy Acid that the peel contains reduces the oil production in your skin, reducing the number of spots. The other chemical properties of this peel will help to control bacteria and inflammation."

Dermaroller:

"Dermaroller is safe, affordable and can be used on all skin types. It cannot be used whilst acne is still present, but is a fantastic treatment for acne scarring; softening and reducing the visibility of acne scars so you’re left with a brighter, more even complexion."

Obviously, not being qualified in such things I have no idea which treatment would be best to help reduce his scarring, so instead I have opted for a voucher and allow him to make a decision one he has talked through the options with a professional.

The Results You Can Expect From Adult Acne 

In most cases of adult acne treatment, a six-week treatment programme is suitable, and in the majority of cases this is enough to lead to dramatic and long-lasting results.
You will generally begin to notice a real difference just a few weeks after starting adult acne treatment as the acne begins to fade.The skin becomes smoother and clearer, and the scarring becomes significantly less noticeable. All of this will lead to an improvement in self-confidence and give you a new lease of life.

Below is a before and after image from sk:n's website showing a Lady before treatment and 6 weeks after.

Pretty amazing don't you think!?

Here's hoping my Husband has results just as amazing as these. I know it would really help his self confidence if the scarring was less obvious. Fingers crossed!
