In this interview, Sarah Saporito shares her acne struggles and how she finally achieved the results she’d be dreaming of at Envision Acne & Skin Care Center.
I remember reading Sarah’s intake form when she first arrived at Envision Acne & Skin Care Center: she had been dealing with acne since she was just thirteen-years-old and had tried everything to clear her skin over the course of the next decade of her life. Despite of her efforts, unfortunately, nothing had worked.
“Of course I went to a dermatologist – I went to a few actually – and they prescribed me antibiotics, often just upping the dosage every time that it would stop working. I tried topical medications for my skin. I was on Accutane twice and it cleared up both times but then came back once the Accutane course was complete. My dermatologist then said that it was hormonal so I ended up on birth control for a little over 10 years. It was under control during that time for the most part but then it started to come back. They wanted to switch my birth… it was a lot of back and forth.”
It was very clear to me why Sarah had had no lasting results with her skin. Her condition was lingering on for many years because her body was so full of toxins from the cocktail of medications she’d tried over the years and it was just her body’s way of releasing it through her skin. We started her treatment therefore, by adjusting her skin care routine and making some changes to her diet and lifestyle. It was very important to start eliminating these toxins from her body so supplementation was also a big part of her home care.
Sarah approached her treatment with great enthusiasm and this certainly paid off.
“It was very easy to be able to maintain all of the skin care as well as the supplements. In the beginning, I just made sure to refer back to the dosage for supplements, when to take them and how often, but then it became second nature so I didn’t have to think about it anymore. I took them diligently all the time, I still do. I do it every morning, every night. I stay consistent and that’s really helped me.”
Before beginning her treatment, Sarah’s skin was very inflamed and she had lots of tiny little bumps all over her face, as well as her chest and back. Because we approached her treatment holistically, working from the inside out, she was able to achieve fantastic results with this too.
“I was very self conscious with my back, my chest, everything. So with [Nikolett] helping me, with the treatments and the at-home care, it improved dramatically.”
Sarah’s diligence was key to achieving her beautiful skin transformation even though we were not always meeting in person. After her initial treatments we worked mostly virtually, due to her living some distance from the clinic, and this was a very supportive treatment process.
“It was really helpful to be able to email and talk to [Nikolett] about anything I felt I was struggling with, or needing any positive reinforcement, or just to update her on what was going on. It wasn’t like making an appointment with a dermatologist and having to wait 3, 6 months and having to try and figure things out in between. She walked me through everything, I never felt that I didn’t have support.”
It’s so important to us at Envision Acne & Skin Care Center that clients are fully supported through their skin journey. Having someone to reach out to just to make sure everything is going well, or to help with an emergency breakout, is all part of our service.
“I was doubtful in the beginning just because of so many dermatologists giving me the same runaround for so many years but I would definitely, without a doubt, recommend going to see Envision Acne & Skin Care if you have any skin problems you’d like to clear. I completely put my faith in Nikolett.”
Working with Sarah was an absolute joy and we were so happy to see the incredible transformation in her confidence after just a couple of months working together.
