About 3 years ago I made the decision to go for laser hair removal on my face at a skin clinic in Birmingham. For the first few treatment sessions, things were fine but during the last session, it seemed as if the nurse was using a much stronger laser on me and I ended up with burns on my face. The burns then got infected and I was put on broad-spectrum antibiotics.

 

Every time I looked in the mirror, all I could see were scars staring back at me. I got depressed, spent three months lying in bed wishing I was dead. I spent thousands on different types of creams, face washes, oils, anything I thought might help. It got so bad, I started to hate everything about my physical-self, and I was diagnosed with Body Dysmorphic Disorder even after the scars had more or less completely disappeared. This had a knock-on effect at work, at home. Having been put on anti-depressants, I thought I might go and meet Julie to see if she could help.

 

Within one session, my confidence has soared and the thoughts I used to have don’t even enter my mind. My dosage of anti-depressant has also been reduced by my GP since seeing Julie from 20mg to 10mg with a view to coming off them completely.

 

Thank you Julie!
