I started reading through all the treatments offered at this clinic and straight away one popped out to me, the Derma-Roller, basically to eliminate stretch marks, it also works for ache, scars etc.
As a mum, my tiger-marks are my war marks; I'm not ashamed of them at all. I never actually got stretch marks throughout my pregnancy; they only really appeared at the end whilst I was overdue by 8days. I tried bio-oil, it didn't work for me, I tried Cussons Mum&Me stretchmark products, and again it didn't work for me. All these creams and oils just didn't have any effect on me.
I know as a mummy that feeling confident in my own skin is important, and I would like to give this option a try, before judging it and saying that cosmetic treatments are a no-go area, I want to try it for myself and see how I feel about in first hand.
So I booked myself in for a consultation, at the Wenlock Street clinic opposite the Marylebone Hotel. Seeing as I live on the central line, it only took me 20minutes to get to the appointment, the closest station is Bond Street, it's about a 5 minute walk (in heels) from the station to the clinic.
As soon as you come out the station, you walk towards Debenhams department store, walk behind the store, and it's along Wenlock Street about 2 minutes.
I walked down Wenlock Street for about 2 minutes, until I found 24 with a sign for ProSkin Clinic on the outer wall. I went down some mental stairs to a door, and entered a little lobby with a big open windowed counter.
Waiting for me was Chez, and the Manager. Chez has introduced me to ProSkin, and works for them. All the staff were so friendly and I got along with everyone instantly, making me feel comfortable and at ease straight away, because being in a clinic can be a scary place but this was very calming. The Clinic itself was very clean; they were actually vacuuming as I was coming in and light, I find that it makes a difference when the clinic itself is bright and clean.
I went in for a consultation and a chat with the manager, she was a lovely lady who really explained to be about the procedure, the clinic itself, and medical information behind procedures and machines. This made me feel very confident in the clinic, not only did I get explanations and the procedures I also got before and after pictures of previous clientele.

I decided I'm going to get the Derma-Roller, I got information and the treatment and how long it will take, the pain scale and aftercare.
I will get getting the treatment next month (October), I was advised to use numbing cream on the sides where my stretch marks are an hour before the treatment to make the discomfort of the needles better. As a blogger I have decided to test out the pain threshold of the treatment, one side I will be numbing the side of my stomach with numbing cream from a chemist, the other side I will be without the numbing cream, and I will give an honest opinion on both sides. Saying that I have over 15 tattoos, so I can handle pain, so I'm anxious to figure out if I can hack the pain or not, because I can get tatt'd but a blood test I absolutely HATE!
Besides Derma-roller, they also had another treatment that caught my eye and that was tattoo removal. Now this is a big thing, and I have lots of question on this, I have a few weeks until my consultation in which I was also offered a patch test for free, so I may decide on trying that out but I got plenty of time to think on that because as you will find out soon in an upcoming post I have reservations on this one tattoo I have.
I am super -excited about my treatment next month, so I will be keeping you up to date all things ProSkin, below I will post information about prices, treatments, and offers.
