The start of my pigmenation journey

This is a bit weird copying from my journey but I only really thought about using this website that has just been sitting there for years when my sister suggested it. I have not actually copied from my journal as much of it is personal, that is why I did not want to put these things on facebook, I wanted to put this in a more personal place.

I have tried to include some research I have done personally on the different techniques and devices as that really interested me.

So my journey to better skin health started a long time ago, I visited multiple GP’s or doctors about a few concerns. I have always had a lot of freckles which I later found out was pigmentation. It wasn’t until I visited a skin clinic in Sydney’s CBD that I really got the answers I was looking for. When I first looked into pigmentation removal treatment in Sydney I was faced with so much choice in treatments, advice, and so on it was overwhelming. I ended up getting a very good GP (in the end) who referred me to the skin clinic as they had a very good laser called a GentleMax Pro. I have done so much research on this “device” they call it before I even went in for their free consultation that I think I didn’t really have any questions…

This is the image that I found on the smoother skin website that really made me believe that I could get rid of the freckles on my chest and face.

I was very skeptical about getting a result like this because I had seen before and after photos for pigmentation before and had not had the result or anything near it from other treatments (IPL).

So pigmentation was the first thing that I need to get sorted, because I have dark skin, I had to find a laser that would work on darker skin which I found was quite rare as the chance of the laser causing more pigmentation or hyperpigmentation is a very real thing.

Below is a short video I had written in my journal that I liked

So I have now had three treatments, I need to wait 4 weeks between treatments apparently but I am already so happy with my progress and the lovely staff there said I was progressing just as I should. I have also had other treatments at Details smoother skin clinic in Sydney which I will write about in future blog posts. I think I could almost be an owner of the clinic the amount of money I have spent there, but it has all been worth it, every cent.

I guess I have not said anywhere that I am not being paid by them to write this, this is all on my own volition and I am very happy to write this, not to be used in their marketing but for my own use.

Well that is about all from my first post, very excited to be writing about this, the more I write, the more I enjoy it. The funny thing is I think I get my design and layout from my mum.

Hope everyone in Sydney is enjoying the lovely start to summer and everyone back home, hope the winter is not too long and dark!

love to everyone
