Top model Naomi’s acne treatment mission

Ready for the catwalk

Model Naomi Heap is preparing for what could be her big break in the fashion industry, Top Model UK

With her long dark hair, distinct features and a dream to hit the catwalks, there was just one thing that stood in her way – acne.

After sailing through her audition on the premise that she ’sorted out her skin’, Naomi made it her mission to sort out her stubborn spots and blemishes once and for all, before the final of this prestigious national competition.

Naomi said: “As you can imagine, in such a competitive industry, it’s vital that you have great skin. After searching on the internet for an affordable skin specialist, I approached SkinGenesis as they offered exactly what I was looking for – effective adult acne treatments. The medication I was on helped, but it didn’t achieve half as much as I wanted it to, and progress was slow, so I booked in for a consultation with Deborah, the clinic manager in Chester.

“She put together a bespoke skin treatment package that would treat both my remaining active acne, as well as the existing scars caused from previous blemishes. We started off with an Expert Skin Analysis, which determined my skin type, moisture content, sun damage and pH, which have helped me choose the right products for my skin. I have since undergone several courses of Microdermabrasion to get rid of all the dead skin cells and avoid further breakouts, as well as one IPL treatment.

“I have also received a gentle vitamin C skin peel, which has benefitted my skin dramatically. I was a bit of a tan-fan in my younger years and used the sunbeds quite a lot!

“All in all I am very happy with the progress we’ve made. By the time the competition comes around, I’m very confident that my skin will be as perfect as it possibly could be.”
