Find out how Layla got on with her treatment for Cystic Acne at The Harley Street Skin Clinic

The team here at Harley Street Skin are proud to be in the happiness business - at least, it feels that way. After all, smiles all round is exactly what we're aiming for.

We've reconnected with one of our patients from the past, the lovely Layla Ziadi to discuss how she overcame her cystic acne with the help of Lesley Reynolds, Harley Street Skin's very own skincare guru...

DO YOU REMEMBER THE VERY MOMENT YOU DECIDED TO GO AHEAD WITH TREATMENT?

I got a sudden outbreak of severe cystic acne when I was 18 and over the period of 4 months, I didn’t leave the house due to how bad it was.

It was in between completing my A levels and finding a job and I refused to go to interviews due to the fact my confidence was so low.

WHAT WERE YOUR PROBLEM AREAS?

I was diagnosed with severe cystic acne all over the face. My cheeks were covered very painful cysts which caused such discomfort that I couldn’t even sleep on my side. Nothing I did seemed to help, I didn't know what to do.

HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS?

'Happy' is an understatement. I will forever be grateful for Harley Street Skin as in a short amount of time, I managed to make the cysts much better and get them under control.

WHAT WAS IT ABOUT THE HARLEY STREET SKIN CLINIC THAT TOOK YOUR FANCY?

Actually it was because I had watched the TV programme [Stitch Me, Lift Me, Tuck Me - SkyLiving] and there was a similar girl to me on there. That drew me in.

Dr Khan and Lesley were so lovely and I am so thankful for their help; it has helped me more then they will ever know!

The whole clinic was always so friendly - some of the girls would even hold my hand during the more painful treatments at the beginning!

CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE PROCEDURE DAY?

Because the condition made my face so sore, procedure days were always a little scary for me.

I had a lot of intensive treatments such as laser therapies, microneedling, PRP etc... but everyone made me feel very comfortable and I was always very glad to see the improvements once they were over!

HAVE THERE BEEN ANY PERKS THAT YOU WEREN'T EXPECTING?

I've got so much confidence. I do still have my scars - because the acne was so severe - but I still work on these and am confident they will reduce over the years now I know what products to use.

WHAT WOULD YOU TELL PEOPLE THAT WERE ON THE FENCE ABOUT TAKING A SIMILAR ROUTE?

Definitely go to Harley Street Skin - they saved me! I would really encourage people that are struggling with acne to not feel like they need to hide away, go and see someone.

Seriously, when I look at the before and after photos, it's crazy to see the improvement. I've come such a long way!

I really don’t know where I’d be if my face had continued to worsen without any treatment.

WOULD YOU CONSIDER POPPING BACK TO THE CLINIC IN FUTURE?

Definitely! I'm now at a point where I'm much more confident, and within a few months of treatment, I started going out again and even landed myself a brand new job.

Thank you, Lesley!
