Just 8 months ago, 29-year-old Emma Gibbson’s lifelong wish came true when boyfriend Scott went down on one knee to propose to her. She was overjoyed and quickly said “yes”. But her happiness would quickly turn into sorrow. Because there were unsightly indented scars all over her face. As much as she wanted the big day to turn out perfect, she knew her facial scars will be the biggest flaw.
Puberty hit Emma hard. Her teenage years were troubled by persistent, raging cystic breakouts. And along with her habit of picking at the acne and popping them the wrong way, they left her face with horrific scars and hyperpigmentation.
Desperate to look her very best for the wedding, she went on a spree and tried everything. From at-home remedies such as egg whites, baking soda and petroleum jelly to shelling out extra bucks on over-the-counter medications and facial treatments… NOTHING WORKED!
Some even triggered allergic reaction, causing intense redness and itching to the scars. Realizing that her appearance took another step back, signs of pre-wedding anxiety were starting to show.
