With Fathers Day looming, we had a chat with one of our recent male clients, Tom, to find out about his first experience at DestinationSkin.
Over the last few years, I have suffered with dehydrated skin, and invested a lot in different products (both high street and specialist) to try and tackle it but nothing seems to have given me anything other than a quick fix!
Having researched various treatments available for dehydrated and ageing skin, I read about the Dermaroller and felt that this could offer results for me. Even though I was a little nervous about going into the clinic for my first appointment, I was confident the results would be worth it, and as soon as I set foot into DestinationSkin’s Birmingham clinic, I honestly felt at ease. There were other men in the clinic waiting for treatment too, which added to my comfort.
My consultation confirmed that my skin was indeed dehydrated and that the Dermaroller was the best option to treat my condition. Practitioner Liz, who carried out the treatment was able to answer any questions I had, and advised me on exactly what I needed to do as my aftercare, so I felt very well informed and knew what to expect.
Since my Dermaroller treatment, I’ve been over the moon with my results. As I said, I have tried various products in the past and never been satisfied, and in comparison, the results from the Dermaroller have been brilliant!
It’s given me so much more confidence and I’m keen to do what I can to preserve the results. This has also made me feel more comfortable to try out other skin treatments, and I am now open to considering other alternatives. However, I’m a Dermaroller convert so firstly I’d return for another treatment again!
There is still a social barrier for men when it comes to skincare and grooming, however I feel that this is breaking down. I’ve openly discussed the treatment with my family as much as I have with friends when I’m in the pub, which has only met with positive interest – and a few recommendations from me!
