Skin peels changed Melasma sufferer’s life

When 44-year-old Shaista Iqbal developed an unsightly and distressing skin condition she was left feeling ‘hopeless’ and ‘defeated’.


When 44-year-old Shaista Iqbal developed an unsightly and distressing skin condition she was left feeling ‘hopeless’ and ‘defeated’. Having had beautiful skin all her life, the negative effects of Melasma – a common form of pigmentation which leaves the skin looking patchy, uneven and discoloured were significant.
Shaista’s GP told her that the condition was most likely the result of a reaction to the oestrogen in the contraceptive pill and advised her to switch to a different one. She was also prescribed a topical cream. In the weeks that followed she saw no improvements and her doctor had no further recommendations.
Upset with how she looked, Shaista visited numerous private clinics and saw short-term improvements but the pigmentation always reappeared.
She said: “I went to countless private places and tried various products, but they were all the same.”
As well as making her feel self-conscious, the condition started to affect her relationship with her partner: “He couldn’t bear to look at me and whenever my face would be peeling from the treatments I was undergoing, he would suddenly disappear.”
After years of unsuccessful treatments and low self-esteem, Shaista decided to give The Harley Medical Group a call. Despite being apprehensive that she’d go through months of treatment and see no benefit, she booked in for the Obagi treatments, starting with the Nu-Derm starter kit. When the first treatment didn’t have any effect, she visited the clinic to complain, but was reassured by the nurse that she’d see results from the second treatment. Persuaded, Shaista continued with the treatment kit and within days there were significant visible improvements.
 “When I was using it [Obagi Nu-Derm] I could see my bad skin washing away and the marks disappearing off my face, I was completely ecstatic as I wasn’t expecting any results. After nine years finally something was working properly,” she said.
“I can’t explain how I felt when someone first complimented me on my new radiant skin. It was incredible as it had been so long since somebody had said anything nice.
“Not only has my face cleared up and gone back to normal, but my skin has become a lot firmer; an added plus to the treatment,” she added.
