I’m a very petite person and have always felt that I was out of proportion. This made me extremely self-conscious. I was recommended to Dr. Wells for a breast augmentation by a girlfriend that I trust. After this procedure I feel that my body is so much more in proportion and balanced. I’m thrilled with the results. I even feel like I stand taller because I’m more confident.
During my follow up appointment with Dr. Wells, I began casually talking to Susan Wells about what bothered me the most—way more than my body image—which was my chronic acne.
I always felt that people were never looking me in the eyes, but that their eyes were moving to my acne. I often felt like I couldn’t even smile because of it.
For years I have fought a battle with my acne, using every drug and lotion, from dermatologists to products “As Seen on TV”. I would have small victories, but the acne persisted.
Along with continuing to see my dermatologist, Susan Wells (Susan M. Wells RN, MS, CANS) and Aesthetician Tonya McCoy began treatments on my face including chemical peels and topical home skin care, plus they began me on healthy mineral makeup. They even switched me to a physician recommended sunscreen. This all put my skin in the freshest, best shape possible to allow my skin to heal itself.
After a month and a half my skin was completely clear—for the first time in years.
Now people do look me in the eyes. For the first time ever when someone tells me I’m beautiful I believe it because now I really feel beautiful.
