So as you all may have seen from my Instagram, I have been receiving some skin treatments at Therapie Clinic in Dundee. Therapie Clinic is Europes No.1 Laser and Skin Clinic, so when I heard they were opening up in the Overgate and wanted to collaborate, I couldn’t wait!
I was given the choice to choose a treatment that interested me but there was so much choice! From laser hair removal to cosmetic injections, they really offer everything, however I was really interested in what skin treatments they had to offer, so I decided to go with that. I was given an appointment for an initial consultation, where I would have my skin looked at by a specialist and then would be recommended treatments according to how my skin looks.
I arrived at my appointment to be greeted by the friendliest faces and the most gorgeous interior- there is nothing better than arriving at a salon/clinic and feeling like you are at a spa! My appointment was with a lovely lady called Justine, who really looked after me. She had a good look at my skin and let me know exactly what kind of treatment it needed. I have minor acne (its a lot better than it used to be), and quite oily and congested skin. I was recommended a set of 3 skin peels, so thats exactly what I did!
I arrived back at the clinic a few weeks later at my first appointment for an ormedic skin peel. When you hear the phrase ‘skin peel’ it can be quite daunting as my first thought was “is all my skin going to peel off?!”, but I was reassured that was not the case- there would only be very minor peeling! Therapie Clinic use Image Skincare, which feels really nice on your skin and also smells delicious! The ormedic skin peel is targeted at congested skin, which was perfect for me. The peel involved brushing the liquid onto the skin in layers. The products give a slight tingling sensation which means that it is activating and getting to work, clearing out the skin. Justine helped me understand this with a ‘pacman’ analogy, as if the treatment is getting to work eating away at all the dead cells and blocked pores. I left with my skin feeling noticeably less congested and more glowy! What’s more is that there was only a very minor breakout afterwards, despite expecting a much bigger one!
I then returned a few weeks later for my signature peel. This is a vitamin c, enzyme based peel which is great for exfoliation. Again, it was perfect for my congested skin, and I really felt it tingling away and working. I was told that this kind of enzyme peel is great for collagen production, which makes the skin look brighter and plumper- like you’ve had a 10 hour sleep!
I got this signature peel again two weeks later and the results are fab. My skin has a lot less bumps and looks less clogged up. I have fewer blackheads and spots and my skin just has this permanent glow and healthy look. My family and even my boyfriend have noticed a difference and I couldn’t be happier. This is something I will definitely be looking into doing more in the future as it has really given me more confidence in my skin and perhaps helped find a way to resolve my current skin issues.
If you are in Dundee, I couldn’t recommend Therapie Clinic enough. The knowledge that the people have there is amazing- I couldn’t believe how knowledgeable Justine was- and I felt really comfortable throughout every treatment. Therapie Clinic also have clinics in Glasgow and Edinburgh too with lots of treatments (I’ve linked a list here).
Thank you so much to Therapie Clinic for the most amazing experience and beautiful skin!
