My name is Carla Pooran, I have been in the aesthetic and beauty industry for over 20 years and I am the founder of SkinRenewal. Having previously worked at the renowned Woodford Medical clinic within the prestigious medical district of London’s Harley Street and award winning Essex flag ship clinic, during this time I gained a wealth of knowledge on skin related conditions such as acne, rosacea, hyperpigmentation/melasma and ageing of the skin. In the 16 years of senior aesthetic therapist, I had advanced training in all of the below treatments and continued to update these on a yearly basis. I successfully built up a healthy client base, which included many high profile clients, beauty editors, journalists and bloggers who regularly featured the treatments I had carried out.
I developed my technical skills with extensive training in:
I had the privilege to be trained under the guidance of Dr Carl Thornfeldt, one of the top 5 dermatologists in the US. His approach on how to repair and maintain the skin barrier created a passion in me for skin health and by using his concept of treating the skin barrier first, I saw a great improvement in many of my clients' skins over the years. This methodology is known as Corneotherapy.
I used this method when treating many skin conditions including acne, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, melasma, scarring and general ageing of the skin. As a teenager, I personally suffered with acne which then continued into adulthood. I was always trialling different skincare products, with not much luck until I worked on fixing my skin barrier, then things really started to improve for me. Therefore I can empathise with my clients and appreciate how skin quality and health can seriously affect self confidence.
Another area I was involved in, was the various training programmes. I trained doctors, nurses and other aesthetic professionals. Where I demonstrated skin peels, microneedling and education on skin health and skincare brands which would then be implemented within their own clinics.
Due to my personal circumstances It gave me the push to embark on a life long dream, which would allow me to continue with my passion for skin but be around for my children.
