We all know a bad spot can ruin your day, we feel less confident, less attractive and are convinced everyone is staring at it. But what about bad skin? For those with complexions constantly marked by spots or acne, everyday is a confidence challenge. When we here at EBT heard about the progress being made with Nlite, a yellow light laser at the West London Dermatology Centre, we wanted to find out more and sent along our tester Jess, who had been plagued for years with severe acne that was seemingly oblivious to antibiotics and topical creams. With her skin so bad that she had to layer on heavy make-up even before answering the front door, her confidence was at an all time low. Having read up on why yellow lasers are more efficient than the traditional blue (they penetrate deeper into the skin thereby killing more of the bacteria that causes acne, plus its healing properties help prevent re-infection) she went along for a consultation with leading dermatologist Dr Tony Chu (an expert in his field) before her first session.
