A selection of treatments to reduce and remove Acne Scars
How are you treated for Acne Scar removal?
During your intial consultation, your senior skin technician will devise an advanced acne scar removal treatment plan that will significantly reduce and also remove acne scarring damage to areas such as your face, neck chest or back. Consultations for acne scarring are often free of charge and come with no obligation. Our skin technician will then be able to offer you some alternative treatment methods, such as SkinPen, to suit both the type of acne scaring and the location of the scars on your face or body.
Do you have unwanted acne scars? Or are you looking for acne scar removal because it’s affecting your self esteem and confidence?
At our advanced skin clinic, we have the solutions to resolve your scarring concerns.
It is likely that as your skin has aged and any old flat, raised or indented acne scars may have become more prominent as the elasticity has gone from your skin. Your skin may now seem a little more saggy and less tight.
There are four types of acne scarring that we see and successfully treat in our Hertfordshire clinic:
- Post Inflammatory scarring
- Ice Pick Acne scarring
- Box scarring
- Rolling Scars
By the end of your course, your treatment will have left you with a significant improvement to your skin. Which ever method is advised to you, the results will show new smooth unblemished skin due to the repair, resurfacing, tightening and plumping.
(depending on treatment)
What is the best treatment for Acne Scars?
The treatment for acne scar removal, post consultation, may be a single type of method or a course of treatments including Chemical Peels, SkinPen Microneedling, Skin Needling, Fibroblast Plasma Pen and LED. Your type of treatment is determined by the severity of your scars and where they are on the body. By the end of your course your skin will show significantly better results.
What results can you expect from the treatment?
Each person can have different acne scars and can be shown up on different areas of the body. For instance, if we were to suggest Skinneedling (SkinPen) or Plasma Pen, it would be because you had Atrophic scarring. Atrophic scars form below the upper layer of skin tissue. They are a result of severe acne that has prevented the skin from being able to regenerate your tissue correctly. This leaves behind uneven texture in shapes known as ice-pick, rolling, and box scars. Also a session of LED after each treatment is key to help skin recovery and healing.
When discussing your treatment for acne scar removal, we may see that the scars had developed more recently and have now showed up as little dark or red marks that just have refused to go away over time. In these cases we would look at other alternatives such as Fibroblast Plasma or a specific Chemical Peel (for Vascular / post inflammatory) that suited your skin type. Exfoliation is key to your recovery with these acne scars.
