In this interview, Jackie Bellagamba shares her journey to achieving clear, acne-free skin after years of struggling.
Jackie and I had only been working together for a few short months before achieving her incredible skin transformation. Prior to her visiting us at Envision Acne & Skincare though, she had been on a very emotional journey with her troubled skin.
“It’s been a very long journey: I started to get acne when I was in high school but it wasn’t that bad and it went away. It then came back worse in my late twenties which was completely unexpected and so I’ve struggled with acne for the past two or three years.
I’ve tried everything and it’s really affected my life on a major level. It affected my confidence number one, which was really difficult. And it just affected my overall happiness. I didn’t want to do anything, I didn’t want to go anywhere. I canceled plans and I just wanted to stay in bed. I cried a lot! I didn’t even want to be around my family and my close friends and I was just really depressed at times because it took over my life in away.”
Like so many clients, Jackie was incredibly frustrated having tried a long list of treatments and products to little or no effect.
“Every product, every treatment. Everything I could find. I spent thousands of dollars on products alone trying to find a solution. Different treatments, sometimes painful, sometimes harmful to my skin but I just didn’t know at the time.”
Understandably, Jackie was desperate for a solution to her adult acne so that’s exactly what we set out to finally resolve.
When she began her journey at Envision Acne & Skin Care Center, Jackie was suffering from quite inflamed, cystic acne. We worked on her skin from the inside out making adjustments not only to her skincare routine but also to her lifestyle and diet which included supplements to support the health of her skin.
‘Healing my skin from the inside – so considering things like supplements, changing my diet, changing my lifestyle choices and just making good habits – was something I wasn’t considering before and something that no one had ever offered or brought up with me before. So it was brand new and it was awesome to see how well that worked and how quickly making those changes really helped my skin.”
It’s one of the most important parts of treatment here at Envision Acne & Skincare, we start cleaning your skin from the inside and we address all those factors that are causing inflammation in the skin. This approach allows us to address the real cause of the acne which then allows you to achieve results in a short period of time and most importantly, maintain them for the rest of your life.
“Making small changes, some lifestyle changes, some diet changes, even if they were slightly difficult in the beginning, once you start to see results it’s SO worthwhile! And I was excited to make those changes.”
It was an absolute pleasure to assist Jackie on her skincare journey. Witnessing her huge smile as she began to achieve her amazing results was an absolute joy.
“It’s the best decision I’ve ever made when it comes to my skin and my overall happiness. I’m so glad I found Envision and I think it’s absolutely worth it to invest in something that is for your overall health and happiness. I would absolutely recommend coming here. It’s easy to make these changes and I’m extremely grateful and extremely happy.”
