testimonials and transformations

at skinSALVATION we believe our work speaks for itself. since 2008, we have treated hundreds of clients with great success (about 90 – 95%). below you’ll find just a few of our many clients who have found their way to clear skin – for good!

CASE

This client was working long hours as a nurse and not prioritizing sleep or stress management. During her initial clearing process she stopped eating iodine rich foods like shrimp. Since being clear she has tried to reintroduce shellfish and notices increased breakouts each time. Limiting iodides and managing stress has kept her clear for over 7 years.

TIME TO CLARITY: 5 MONTHS


CASE

When this client first came to see us she had inflamed and non inflamed acne covering 55% of her face. Her skin was so tight and dry that she told us it hurt to eat a banana. We had to get her skin to a nice healthy place before reintroducing benzoyl peroxide and vitamin a.

TIME TO CLARITY: 2 MONTHS


CASE

This client had mostly non-inflamed acne concentrated in her cheeks, chin and jawline. She has been a vegan her entire life and it was the commitment to giving up soy that finally got her from 65% clarity to 90% clarity.

TIME TO CLARITY: 4 MONTHS


CASE

This client came to us with inflamed and non inflamed acne throughout her entire face. Her inflammation and purging took a long while to get under control, but she was diligent, dedicated and desperate.

TIME TO CLARITY: 5 MONTHS


CASE

Cystic acne concentrated in forehead. When this client came in to see us for the first time his forehead was 10% clear and the lower half of his face was 40% clear. He cut soda, candy, dairy + processed foods from his diet and replaced them with protein + veggies. In order to control his genetically high inflammatory response, he iced + used bp topically and took zyflamend as a supplement.

CASE

Inflamed acne concentrated in the bottom half of the face. This client battled with acne for her entire teen and young adult life before coming to skinSALVATION at age 23. When she first came to see us she was eating dairy and drinking multiple cups of coffee per day to compensate for her lack of sleep. Since prioritizing sleep, stress management and an acne-safe diet she has maintained clear skin.

TIME TO CLARITY: 4 MONTHS

Before finding skinSALVATION I thought that having acne was just something that I had to deal with for the rest of my life. Working on managing my triggers like stress and sleep has not only improved my skin but also my body + mind. I can honestly say that I am a happier + healthier person because of the sS team!

—L. J., skinSALVATION client since 2015.


CASE

Severe acne rosacea. This client had suffered acne and severe redness for years, before coming to skinSALVATION for treatment. This client’s acne rosacea responded best to a combination of benzoyl peroxide and a strong salicylic acid at home, and frequent in-clinic peels.

TIME TO CLARITY: 10 WEEKS.

My goal was to not feel like I needed to hide under makeup because of my acne, and I finally got there! When I make it back to the Bay Area, I can’t wait to get back in with Kim and Christine at skinSALVATION, they are kind, considerate, knowledgeable, and will do anything for you to get you in a better place.

CASE

Nodules on jawline and non-inflamed on chin, neck, and forehead, with redness and irritation throughout. This vegetarian was using comedogenic hair products and eating soy and dairy daily. to get clear, she became a soy-free vegan, and only uses acne-safe hair products and makeup.

TIME TO CLARITY: 8 WEEKS, AND ANOTHER 3 MONTHS TO LIGHTEN PIGMENTATION.

I wish I could give Christine six stars! I went in to see her for a skin consultation and we talking about my skin and what I wanted to improve. She explained everything in so much detail that it started making sense. I didn’t know that acne has so much to do with what I put in my stomach and how I manage my body. She is friendly, knowledgeable and I swear an expert in getting your skin clear and making you look just absolutely beautiful and acne free for life. This woman is GOD when it comes to artistry and making your skin just clear and spotless. If anyone out there is considering getting an acne free skin, I’d advise them to book right away.

CASE

Extremely inflamed acne on cheeks and jawline, with noninflamed throughout. A 28 year old woman who had been going through hormone therapy and eating an inflammatory diet. To get clear, she had to get her hormone levels in balance and cut down on her sugar intake.

TIME TO CLARITY: 4 MONTHS

The team at sS is amazing! Natalie is absolutely wonderful and has done such a wonderful job teaching me and guiding me through the process. She is so knowledgable and thorough. Although, parts of the process are painful and difficult, if you want clear skin, this is the place to go!!!! I highly recommend Skin Salvation and believe that everyone with acne should know about it. Even if you think you don’t have acne and just can’t get your face clear, this is the place for you!!!

Thank you Skin Salvation for my amazing skin!

—Jan G., skinSALVATION client since 2014


CASE

Inflamed and non-inflamed acne on cheeks and jawline. In her mid-twenties, this client had acne since her teens before coming to skinSALVATION. stress, coffee, and soy were three triggers for her acne, which manifested mostly on the lower part of her face.

TIME TO CLARITY: 3 MONTHS

I kid you not: you will believe in miracles after seeing the gals at sS. They did what no pricey derm or facialist in SF and NY could do. Sure, they had me replace my products (to cheaper ones!) and re-up my diet (to a healthier one!), but I am not exaggerating when I say that these women can address any, and I mean, ANY skin problem. they’re also kind, hilarious, and so thorough that you’ll be asking what the catch is.

—Meghan N., skinSALVATION client since 2012


CASE

Non-inflamed concentrated on forehead and hairline. This skinSALVATION client had non-inflamed acne throughout, with occasional inflammation that was usually a result of dietary choices or stress.

(note: after 3 months, she began eating dairy, soy, and coffee again, and broke out once more. eliminating them from her diet for good has led to long-term clarity).

TIME TO CLARITY: 2.5 MONTHS

I’m so grateful to Kim and Christine for helping me achieve clear skin. When I first met Kim I was broken out, frustrated, and desperate to find a solution that would work for my type of skin problems (noninflammed/hyperpigmentation). Kim quickly started me on the path to clear skin by suggesting that I make some lifestyle changes (no diary or soy!). In addition, consistent facial treatments including the most thorough extractions I have ever experienced, and using her products in the manner she prescribed, all helped me obtain clear skin. Even when I went back to my old dietary habits Kim and Christine welcomed me back with open arms and cleared me up again. I recently had a baby and Christine ensured I would stay as clear as possible during my pregnancy. She made each visit very comfortable, especially in my last trimester, which I was extremely grateful for. People compliment me on my skin all the time and it’s all due to SS! I still see Christine every 2 months and not because I’m broken out… I’m just addicted to sS. Thank you sS for everything- I’m a sS groupie for life!
