Kendall Jenner talks teenage acne and the Laser Treatment that helped her beat the blemishes
29 October 2015
She’s one of the highest paid super models in the world, walking the runways of London, Milan, Paris and New York, but Kendall Jenner hasn’t always felt confident about her appearance. As a teenager the reality TV star suffered from extreme anxiety because of acne, she even goes as far as to say it, “ruined (her) life.”
Opening up about her insecurities in a recent blog post Kendall described, “Where it really impacted me was how self-conscious I became about it. It completely ruined my self-esteem. I wouldn’t even look at people when I talked to them. I felt like such an outcast; when I spoke, it was with my hand covering my face.”
Teenage acne – like Kendall suffered with – is usually caused by fluctuations in your hormones, which unfortunately means there isn’t a definitive cure for the skin condition. Most patients will ultimately grow out of their acne, but in the meantime most cases can be dramatically improved by Laser & Skin Treatments.
Kendall sought professional help from a Dermatologist to help manage her acne and had Laser Therapy to help heal the blemishes and remove the scars they left. A Laser Treatment uses light therapy to clear pores and destroy bacteria in the skin. It’s a virtually painless treatment which can have dramatic results, leaving patients with a clear, bright complexion.
The support of her family was also important for Kendall when she was struggling with her skin. “I was thankful we always talked about it in my family. They would help me work on my feelings about it and how I would move past that stage of my life.”
