Acne Treatment Plano
This is how Hannah begin her journey at LED Skin Care Spa. Read here story below and see the transformation via our blogs.
The decision to try LED Skin Care Spa for my acne changed my life and perspective on having acne. It’s been 3 months since I started doing LED treatments for acne and in that time not only has my skin done a 360 transformation but it strengthened my confidence in myself and what I am capable of. At LED Skin Care Spa I have learned about my skin and how to take care of it. All my life I thought all the topicals, washes and medicine was “taking care” of my skin but it was just damaging it even further.
“Well let’s try this topical, that face wash in the morning and that face wash at night, also I’ll prescribe you an antibiotic and it will clear you right up”- every dermatologist
Sound familiar? For the past 10 years, I have heard that sentence over and over again about my acne, with no change in my skin. It’s crazy how one thing can control your entire life, but for my acne was all I could think of. In middle school it was what held me back from raising my hand in class, in High School it was what held me back from talking to the cute boy I looked, in college it was what held me back from speaking up in lecture and in adulthood it was what held me back from chasing my dreams. This all changed when one day I went out on a limb and walked into LED Skin Care Spa in Plano, TX.

While my face is clear and my confidence is sparked I have realized that my story with acne doesn’t end here. According to PR Newswire, “approximately 80 percent of people are affected by acne between the onset of puberty and 30 years of age.” Why is something that affects so many people not solved by now? And should people feel ashamed about it? Every week I am going to write about my experience with acne and how it has affected different parts of my life but also how LED has changed my skin forever.
I am so thankful for the day I decided to try something new with my skin. Check out below what my skin looked like exactly a week before I walked into the LED Skin Care Spa.
Stay tuned for more about my acne journey!

Part 2 – Acne & Patience – 2 Months Later, Hannah’s story
If you would have told me 13 years ago or even last year that one day my skin would be acne and acne scar free I would have rolled my eyes. At some point in my “acne journey” I decided that I would have to accept that acne was apart of my life.
I’ve talked to so many people who have acne and we always bond over how certain topicals make you extremely itchy, how makeup can just make it look worse and how dermatologists always just say “be patient.” When you have painful acne all over your face throughout high school you try being patient.
Looking back I used to obsess over my skin clearing up. In fact, I would set mental deadlines for myself like “in a month my skin is going to be clear.” The thing I failed to understand is that deadlines don’t help, they just lead to being upset and negative that there are no results. The other thing I wasn’t understanding was that everything I was using (antibiotics, prescribed face washes, topicals, etc.) to “clear” my skin up wasn’t ever going to make an actual difference. Sure the medicine would clear up some of the really bad acne but the scars were still there and eventually, those pimples would come back…….and be even worse. I was actually making my skin angry.
So what did I do? I researched and read forums about other people’s acne experiences and kept seeing LED treatments over and over again. After finding the LED Skin Care Spa and booking a consultation I made a mental note in my head that this might not work but to try anyway. Little did I know it was going to change my skin forever.
When I first started going to the LED Skin Care Spa I was seeing some results but with my history of trying almost EVERYTHING for acne, I didn’t want to give my hopes up that it was actually working. Vicki told me to be patient and this is one of my favorite quotes from her:
“Just like dieting going from a size 16 to a 4 or a 42-inch waist to a 36-inch it does not happen in a day, a week or even a month later — sometimes it takes years to achieve goals. We encourage you to stay the course and you will experience results. We’ve been treating acne since 2007 and the results for our clients have been life changing” – Vicki, LED Skin Care Spa
If you just started getting acne or have been battling with it for years like me just know that there are solutions that will ACTUALLY make a difference from the outside in. I would 100% recommend booking a consultation at the LED Skin Care Spa because you will never have to worry about a dermatologist telling you to “be patient” ever again. My skin is getting better and better everyday. Yes, I still get pimples, but they are small and and go away almost overnight now. If you follow their protocols and “stay ahead” of your acne/pimples, because they are coming, your skin will change.
