"I was referred to Karen Bowen by a friend, who advised that Karen might be able to help me with my worsening rosacea [reddening of the facial skin].In my business I’m constantly in the public eye, whether at meetings, conducting interviews or in business dealings with clients, so having a red, blotchy face can be quite a distraction to others, no matter how hard they try to ignore it.

Karen treated my condition with a series of IPL sessions. These produced amazing results in that they not only massively reduced the reddening but also improved the condition of my skin overall.

I know a lot of people suffer from rosacea and I would strongly recommend that they make an appointment with Karen to discuss treatment."

"I’ve been a farmer for 30 years, and out in all weathers day after day. Even though I’ve always used the appropriate protective creams and clothing, I noticed that the skin on my nose was becoming more and more tender and also redder by the day. Eventually, I consulted my GP and underwent two procedures that involved scraping the dead skin off my nose. This was meant to relieve the tenderness, but it didn’t work. My nose became ever more tender as time went by — even after slight knocks the skin would crack open and bleed. In desperation I consulted another GP, who told me the only other procedure he could suggest was skin grafting. I discussed this option with my friend and she suggested that I first try ‘dermal therapy’. That’s when I made an appointment with Karen Bowen, despite the fact that her clinic is a six-hour drive from where I live.

During my first appointment with Karen, she ‘scanned’ the skin on my nose and, because of the GP’s recommendation of skin-grafting, discussed the resulting images with her clinic doctor. Between them they decided that IPL would be the best option for me: it would not only strengthen the skin but also decrease the redness. Next, Karen explained in detail what exposure to the elements had done to my skin and how the IPL procedure would work. Following my first IPL treatment, and the application of Danné products afterwards, I noticed that the skin on my nose calmed down considerably. It was less shiny and felt less tender. I realised what a big difference there was when my daughter commented on how much better my nose looked. After a second IPL treatment and continued usage of the Danné products, the effect was very noticeable.

Since I began IPL treatments with Karen, the skin has not broken open and bled; nor is it sore to the touch and the redness is now dramatically reduced. I recently completed my third IPL treatment, with only one more to go, and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome! Thank you so much Karen, I now no longer need a skin graft."

"I first came to see Karen about my worsening Rosacea, I also had other issues with my skin as I was getting older (pigmentation, pore size etc) but the Rosacea I experienced on my face and chest was causing me embarrassment on a daily basis. I hated having to wear more make up to try and cover up.

When I first met Karen I had to admit to her that I had not been one to take great care of my skin, so we discussed treatment options and a daily skin care routine.

The Danne products that were recommended were amazing, and I have stuck with my daily routine as I can see and feel the difference these products make to my skin.

Karen has treated my skin with a series of IPL treatments and I am thrilled with the results. Not only has the IPL massively reduced the redness in my skin, it has lightened pigmentation marks, reduced pore size and greatly improved the overall texture of my skin – so much so that I’m confident not wearing foundation/concealer.

Karen impressed me from our first consultation with her knowledge of skin on a cellular level and of the products and treatments she was recommending to me.

Karen does not treat you as just another client, she genuinely wants the same great results that you want for yourself. The whole team at Karen Bowen create such a warm welcoming environment, that you can’t help but feel comfortable. If you want a Dermal Therapist with results based experience, then Karen Bowen is the one for you."
