Stories From South Beach: Kelly's Story


At South Beach Skin Lab, we’re used to dealing with customers who have experienced transformations in their skin, but a few weeks ago, we got a call from someone who underwent a different kind of transformation...

Kelly reached out to us from her home in Maine to tell us about her long and challenging weight loss journey, which started almost 5 years ago.

“It took me a while to get going, but I had a lot of weight to lose - almost 150 lbs!”

Losing weight is a challenge for anybody, but our jaws dropped when we heard she managed to accomplish such a difficult goal!

Although she was able to lose weight and improve her health, Kelly was presented with a new challenge - loose skin.

“I knew I’d have some loose skin after losing so much weight, but I didn’t really think about how insecure I would still feel. I thought getting the weight off would make me confident, but really I just traded one insecurity for another.”

Kelly quote

Our hearts ached for her - we know all too well the effect that insecurities can have on a person, and to hear about how much work Kelly had put in to end up feeling insecure about something else made us want to help her in some way.

As it turns out, we already had helped her…

“I started using your Neck Firming Cream after I went in for a neck lift. A friend recommended it to me after I told her I wasn’t totally happy with the results from my surgery, and I thought ‘What have I got to lose?’”

So Kelly started using the Neck Firming Cream diligently for a month in the hopes that the skin around her neck would start to firm up and appear more sculpted.

We weren’t too sure what she was going to say about the results, because, in all honesty, our products aren’t designed for people in Kelly’s situation.

While the South Beach Skin Lab team will stand behind each and every one of our products, you won’t find any of us claiming that they can reverse sagging skin after losing almost 150 lbs!

That’s why what Kelly said shocked us to our core…

“I didn’t expect anything from the Neck Firming Cream, but I was pleasantly surprised by the results. My neck lift did take care of 90% of the loose skin, but there was a little extra I was worried about, and the Neck Firming Cream cleared a lot of it up!”

To know we had helped Kelly feel less insecure about her neck area was an amazing feeling, and it just reminded us why we do what we do - to help people feel confident in their own skin.

about Kelly

“I might just be lucky that I saw so much success with this cream, but I truly believe that this product really works. I’m so happy that I started using it and I’ll never stop.”

Although Kelly felt lucky to have tried the Neck Firming Cream, we felt equally as lucky that she shared her story with us.

While everybody’s skin is different and some people may not see the results that others do, Kelly’s story is a testament to the fact that hard work pays off - in her case, it paid off with her weight loss and her dedication to her skincare routine.

And Kelly seemed to agree with us because her sage skincare advice was this:

“Hard work equals results. Whether it’s finding the motivation to change your health or to transform your skin by sticking to a routine, nothing comes easy!”

After chatting with her, we felt inspired to share her story and take on some of her words of wisdom.

We feel so lucky to have had that conversation with her, and we can’t wait to see what other big goals she achieves in the future. Until then, we’ll be cheering her on from the sidelines!
