Hi Alycia,
I just wanted to say thank you for giving me so much more self-confidence! The laser treatments you performed on my face to virtually eliminate the fine red capillaries have really improved my self-image and general confidence.
For about twenty years now I have relied on full-coverage makeup to hide the redness which makes me look permanently flushed (or drunk!). Makeup doesn’t always work though: I wear a surgical mask at work which inevitably rubs off even the longest-wearing makeup; on days off and weekends I don’t feel like putting on a face full of makeup, and on holidays (especially when trekking and scuba diving) it isn’t practical.
I’m old enough now to know that other people judging me on my appearance shouldn’t matter, but the fact remains I’m acutely aware that (sadly) people do judge others on their appearance and treat them accordingly.
Discovering that I could get my veins treated and deciding to go ahead was my 50th birthday present to myself, and I’m so glad I did. I no longer need to spend time and money on so much makeup, and the freedom of being able to leave the house with a ‘naked’ face makes me happy: my skin can breathe, I don’t have to look ‘made up’ every day and it just feels great to have natural skin. I feel so much more self-confident without having to think whether I’m red in the face or if my makeup has worn off or gone patchy, and people at work have commented how fresh and healthy I look (without makeup!). I know many would tell me not to be so vain, but having this treatment really has given me a huge psychological boost at this stage of my life.
So: thank you! Your friendliness and reassuring professionalism are a credit to the clinic, and I can’t thank you enough for providing this service. It’s a life-changer, and I will recommend you to anyone who expresses interest. Keep up the great work!
