Cheryl Lundin- Skin Room Client

What our customers are saying

In the last few months I have started to see Katelyn at The Skin Room about my acne. I felt like I had no where else to turn. I had never had a problem with my skin before but in the length of a year my acne covered my face and was painful. I felt like it was the first thing you would see when I walked into a room, which gave me huge self-esteem issues. I tried every face wash and every "trick". I went to the doctor, nothing worked. So I started treatments and skin care with Katelyn. My skin is clearing up. It no longer hurts all day. It is no longer the first thing I think about in the morning. Without the help of Katelyn's care and knowledge on acne at it would not have been possible. I can't thank you enough for your help!
