Nicole's Acne Story
Nicole’s acne began when she was 14 years old. Through her teenage years and into college, she felt like she had tried everything in an attempt to clear her skin—Dermatologists, antibiotics, prescription acne medications and creams, drugstore products, special diets, and even a round of Accutane at one point. Nothing she tried provided results, and as an adult still struggling with acne she felt frustrated, insecure, and embarrassed.
When Nicole came to me for an Acne Consultation this past July, she was excited to have found a solution for her acne that didn’t involve more prescriptions or harsh side effects. Nicole was incredibly committed throughout the entire program, even when she experienced purging during her first six weeks. Her patience and dedication paid off—I declared Nicole an Acne Program Graduate in November!
After struggling with acne for over ten years, Nicole finally has clear skin. Achieving clear skin has given her more confidence, she feels less anxious, and she’s excited to feel comfortable without wearing makeup. We celebrated her clear skin with a bottle of champagne in January (and we celebrated her recent engagement!), and we are now doing monthly acne treatments to maintain clear skin.
Nicole says, “The Acne Program literally changed my life. I have struggled with acne for over 10 years going between over the counter products, to prescriptions from my doctor and dermatologist, to home remedies I found online...but nothing worked long-term. I was frustrated and embarrassed of my skin, and felt embarrassed at work in health care. Hope and her program changed my life in 3 months and I have been clear ever since. I have never felt more confident and so excited to have bare face days without makeup! I have never felt more like me in my entire life!!”
