When I was younger, I suffered horribly with an acne condition. Kids can be cruel, and my peers were no exception. I was called every imaginable name for someone having a bad skin problem. I honestly believe if they knew how much it hurt me, the kids would not have taken it as far as they did. It cleared up with a doctor’s help when I was 16 years old, but my skin did not recover 100 percent though it was still a huge improvement. I went to an aesthetic medical clinic in Singapore not that long ago, and they were able to really help me feel better about myself.
I know that we are taught to embrace ourselves, to love ourselves for just how we are. Have you noticed that it is usually people without obvious flaws that say things like that? It was hard on me to still see the damage that years of acne did on my face. The kids didn’t tease me as we got older, because the acne was finally stopped. Even though no one has pointed out that I still have skin damage from it, I was able to see it every day, and I hated it.
When I went to the aesthetic clinic, I was hesitant to have hope. I had already been treated successfully for my acne, so this was purely cosmetic in nature. It was actually so much more than that though, as it was going to give me a freedom and confidence that I had never had, if it was successful. I can say now that it really does work, and I could not be happier with my smooth complexion. It took away every mark! Though others still see me as they always have, I can feel the difference in how I see myself.
