Acne scarring can be a constant reminder of the pustules, blackheads and nodules that once populated your skin. Unfortunately if you have suffered from acne there is a high chance that you will have some scarring. And whilst you may be celebrating finally having clear skin, this can often be overshadowed by the marks, indents and blemishes caused by acne scars.
The good news is that we have a number of treatments that can help to reduce the appearance of acne scars. Helping you to achieve smoother skin and boosting you skin confidence. All our treatment and skincare regimes are bespoke and tailored to you and will be fully discussed in your consultation with our experienced aesthetic therapists.
Factors to consider
There are different types of scars and most people will have a combination of these which may include indents, raised scars and pigmented marks. Whilst acne scars will never completely disappear, their appearance can be improved with aesthetic treatments. Below are the types of scars left by acne.
Ice Pick Scars – Narrow, thin deep, pitted depressions in the skin
Box Scars – Broader and wider depressions
Rolling Scars – Broad depressions like hills and valleys
Depressed scars are formed when there is too little collagen produced during the healing process.
Hypertrophic Scars – Raised or lumpy scar, caused by too much collagen forming during the healing process.
Macular Scars – Red or brown pigment marks on the skin
Treatments Available For Acne Scars
We offer three different treatments available to improve the appearance of Acne Scars.
Plasma BT uses plasma energy, this creates a small electrical arc on the surface of the skin sublimates tissue and can be used to treat scars without spreading unwanted heat to the surrounding skin.
Microneedling can improve the appearance of acne scars by triggering the body’s healing response. It does this by creating micro-trauma in the skin which stimulates the new formation of collagen.
Skin peels can be used to improve the appearance of acne scarring by gently removing the top layer of damaged skin and allowing new a new healthier layer of skin to form.
