I, like so many of you, struggled with hormonal/adult acne during pregnancy. I tried several different high end cleansing products and nothing was working for me. It was affecting me as a wife, mother, friend and business owner. I had a hard time saying yes to social events because I was dealing with active acne in my early 30’s. Keep in mind this is my 4th pregnancy and nothing worked for me in the first 3 pregnancies either. I would call local places about receiving any kind of treatment and they would reply that they couldn’t do anything until after baby was born. Well, that’s when my skin would clear up again.
I am so excited to share with you all that I found something that not only changed my world but everyone around me as well. The only regret I have is not going to see Treasure Valley Dermatology earlier in my pregnancy. After a 20 min visit with Dr. Portela, he shared with me a simple, non-abrasive, 100% safe for pregnancy chemical peel that gave me the “pregnancy glow” I have always wanted. I just entered my 3rd trimester and I feel confident enough to not only take pics with my family but also post them on social media.
I will never get back the time missed with family and friends due to self-esteem issues. I worked hard to look past the acne but several times a day I was reminded when I saw my reflection or looked in the mirror. What I have now is a Doctor and his team of professionals that I will continue to share with my friends and family.
If you or anyone you know is struggling with hormonal/adult acne, it’s time to make an appointment with Treasure Valley Dermatology. Don’t wait like I did and miss out. Call now!
