By | Beauty & the Blog | No Comments
For many of us there’s a sense of relief that we made it through our teens without severe acne and then there it is, we’re presented with the gift of adult acne. It’s said that 95% of people suffer from sort of breakouts throughout their lives. It’s one thing to first win the war and clear away persistent, recurring zits and it’s another thing dealing with the aftermath. When I say aftermath, I mean those sexy red and pink marks leaving their everlasting reminder of what you went through. Maybe in previous generations people would put up with covering their scars with clothing, scarfs or caked on concealer, but nowadays we don’t need to do that. We can permanently erase the evidence of those haunting volcanoes in a heartbeat with IPL. Read More
