Derm Visits: Clear, Relieved, Reassured

At No.23 Skin we see many people with sore, red, and itchy skin. If that sounds like you, trust us when we say you’re not alone. We know your skin has a big impact on your daily life and seeking treatment can feel a bit bewildering. Here are three real patient stories to show how seeking a dermatologist near you can really help. The below are examples of eczema, rosacea, and dermatitis, but you can also read our mole checks and acne stories here – moles, acne.

Charlotte – Dermatitis

After having her second child, Charlotte was struggling with dermatitis around her mouth, along her jaw and surrounding her eyes. This was new to her and causing her a fair amount of distress due to the itchy discomfort and the red raw skin. After using a lot of moisturisers from the Boots that were not helping, she sought out a local dermatologist to support her skin. Her dermatologist, Dr Maria Roest, here at No. 23 Skin, took the time to listen to everything that was going on in Charlotte’s life – it was apparent the stress of parenthood, plus no sleep, dry, cold weather and an infection was causing havoc for Charlotte. Fortunately this is something we see a lot and Dr Roest could successfully treat the condition. To get it under control, a combination of prescriptions – including an antibiotic and a topical cream were needed for a short period. Charlotte’s skin quickly healed over the next few weeks, leaving her grateful for the expertise that restored her comfort and confidence.

Rita – Rosacea

what is rosacea

It is not very often that Rita shared her health stories, but she kindly gave us permission after struggling with rosacea for a period of time. Having grown up with ‘normal skin’ it has been very difficult and expensive to try and treat this complex and unpredictable issue herself. Laying on the foundation to cover up the redness that appeared was becoming a daily practice and one that upset her. Despite having a healthy diet and lifestyle, her rosacea would just flare up – seemingly for no reason. Having heard that BBL laser treatment can help this type of condition and knowing that No. 23 Skin are a medical clinic, she came in for an assessment and treatment. After two treatments her skin is looking remarkably clear. We recommend three sessions of BBL, but due to the marked improvement, Rita has decided to keep the final session until later in the year – results should last 6 months so we will reassess her skin at this point.

James – Eczema Treatment

eczema

James, in his mid-40s, had been dealing with persistent eczema that affected his daily life. After a particularly bad patch when the weather changed, he decided to take action and come and see a dermatologist near to him. He booked in with Dr Cherry for a dermatology consultation. She expertly identified triggers, prescribed an effective treatment plan, and educated James on managing flare-ups. Grateful for the relief, James experienced improved skin health, allowing him to engage more comfortably in social and work activities.

What a lovely find No.23 Skin is, this was my first facial post lockdown and I picked the perfect place. It is in beautiful location just off High St Ken and whilst being luxurious it was also welcoming and warm. I selected the anti-aging facial and Cecilia tailored it especially to my skin concerns. She had had such a great touch and I was relaxed from the first minute. Facial included a fabulous massage and a LED light treatment (this is a must) and after 75 mins I left with glowing skin! It’s been over two weeks and my skin still looks fresh and dewy.Next appointment is with Dr Armstrong for my wrinkle treatment. Will then be Christmas party ready!read more

The team at No.23 Skin are really helpful, warm and knowledgeable. I went in for a pregnancy facial with Cecilia and she helped me with some very annoying milia that have been troubling me around my eyes for ages and nobody else would help with.I was also able to have a pregnancy safe peel which has left me with smoother skin with a more even tone. Would really recommend!read more
