After years of smoking, using sunbeds, sunbathing with no sunscreen, it sadly caught up with me in my late 30s. I had always had active acne and thought the sun helped. Sadly I could see the damage on a photograph, which shocked me at how old I looked and I also found it difficult to look in the mirror.
I started seeing Dr Sajjad Rajpar 10years ago for my adult acne and sun damage. He treated my acne with antibiotics and topical retinoid. Although my acne was well controlled, I had significant sun damage, wrinkles and scars. Dr Rajpar was very non-judgemental and understood that is was the norm in the ’80s to have a deep tan and smoke. He was very patient with me and I quickly stopped smoking and started to follow his advice.
Initially, I didn’t know what The Westbourne Centre had to offer, but over the years of going there, I have treated myself to numerous treatments, including Botox (anti-wrinkle injections), fillers and facials.
More recently, Dr Rajpar has introduced me to Tixel, a new treatment for scaring and rejuvenation. This, along with the HydraFacial, has taken years off my face! The Tixel produces collagen, which fills the lines I don’t want and plumps up my skin, where age has diminished volume. Tixel has knocked years off me, some people have even mistaken me for being in my late 30’s!
All my life I have smothered myself in thick heavy foundation. Now I feel proud to ‘go naked’ and my skin looks youthful and fresh. I have so many compliments and my self-esteem has improved more than I could ever imagine. I didn’t realise how much my face/skin had depressed me. I now look in the mirror every morning and smile. No more beauty counters looking for the perfect cream and foundation.
I feel at ease when I come to The Westbourne Centre, trusting the staff, including Dr Rajpar whole heartily. If there is something you are unhappy with about your face or body then I cannot recommend them enough.
I will be a client for the rest of my life.
Thank you to all at The Westbourne Centre!
