A selection of treatments to reduce and remove Acne Scars

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.

As your skin ages, it is common for any old flat raised or indented acne scars to become more prominent as the elasticity has diminished from your skin. Your skin may now seem a little saggier 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

A course of treatment to resolve your acne scars will be discussed with your skin therapist. The prescribed treatment will leave you with significant improvements to your skin. Whichever method is advised to you, the results will show new smooth and unblemished skin, thanks to the repair, resurfacing, tightening and plumping.



(depending on treatment)

How are you treated for Acne Scar removal?

During your initial consultation, your senior skin technician will devise an advanced acne scar removal treatment plan that will significantly reduce the 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 the SkinPen or Chemical Peel. Both of these suit the treatment of acne scars on your face or body.

What results can I expect?

The treatment for acne scar removal, post consultation, is generally a course of treatments, including either Chemical Peels or SkinPen Microneedling with LED. Your type of treatment is determined by the severity of your scars and where they are on the body. The type of scars and your skin type, will also determine the level of success and the length of treatment time. One has to be realisitc with acne scar treatment, as it may take a course of treatments over several months to achieve the smoother, softer skin you were hoping for.

What Acne Scar treatment may be suggested?

If your skin therapist suggests Skin needling (SkinPen), 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 the 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 had now shown up as little dark or red marks that just have refused to go away over time. In these cases, we may look at the other alternative of a Chemical Peel (for Vascular / post-inflammatory) that suited your skin type. Exfoliation is key to your recovery from these acne scars.

What we recommend you do now

The starting point for any treatment for acne scars is to have a consultation with one of our experienced skin therapists. This consultation will determine if your skin type is suitable for one of the various procedures we can use to target, reduce and remove your scarring. The consultation takes around 45 minutes and gives us the time to explain how a treatment would progress, the time frame, expected long lasting results, downtime and cost. The acne scar consultation is £45 and is deductible of any prescribed treatment.

Louise Yarwood 24th April

Already I’m looking SOOO much better! Dr Kiran is personable, clever and hugely talented. Always feel as though I’ve visited a friend …and within weeks I look brighter and healthier for it. What’s not to love?! Thank you,  Dr Kiran

Joanna Scotman 23rd April

Had the most wonderful transformative experience with Dr Kiran. I was born with facial asymmetry, and as I’ve got older this has become worse. The filler treatment prescribed to me by Dr Kiran has worked beautifully and subtlety to balance my face and features, creating a naturally tighter and younger look. Less double chin and an enhanced jawline. Thank you so much Dr Kiran.

Isabelle Masonelle – 13th April 2022

As always, I’ve had the most amazing service at BeauSynergy. The girls here are fantastic.
I am seen by Marina on a monthly basis and she has just been an absolute pleasure from
the beginning. My skin has never looked so good and I have never received so many compliments! This salon is a gift from God! Thank you so much!!

Lesley Freemat 11th April 2022

It was my first consultation, as I am new to area. My therapist was professional and
approachable. She listened to my concerns and explained the treatments suitable for me in
detail. I’ve booked my first treatment and am looking forward to it.

Your Questions Answered

Is the treatment painful?

There is minimal pain or discomfort felt. A local anaesthetic cream will be used to minimise discomfort.

What is post inflammatory Scarring and how is is treated?

Post-inflammatory scarring are seen as brownish and reddish marks. In order to treat, we would initially review the skin and use one of or a combination of micro-needling (skin needling) Plasma Pen or Chemical Skin Peels. LED light therapy is the perfect finish to all the treatments for acne and acne scarring due to its wonderful healing and strengthening properties.

How do I prepare for the procedure?

There are no specific requirements before the treatment. We suggest not to apply any cosmetics beforehand and you should let us know about any recent medical conditions and medications taken.

What is Ice Pick and Box Scarring and how are they treated?

Ice Pick and Box scarring, as their names suggest, are caused by more aggressive and severe acne. For Ice Pick and Box scarring we would use Microneedling (skin needling) (to produce more Collagen and plump) or Fibroblast Plasma Pen.  LED light therapy is the perfect finish to all the treatments for acne and acne scarring due to its wonderful healing and strengthening properties.

How long does a session last?

30 – 90 minutes depending on treatment plan discussed.


How do I prepare for the procedure?

There are no specific requirements before the treatment. We suggest not to apply any cosmetics beforehand, and you should let us know about any recent medical conditions and medications taken.

Can I get this treatment performed at my doctors surgery?

Very unlikely. With squeezing NHS budgets, the reduction and removal of acne scarring and other types of scaring is not something that is performed by your local GP. Our clinic offers successful safe, non-surgical treatments to reduce and remove acne scars.

We want you to be as relaxed and comfortable as is possible throughout your Microblading procedure, so local anaesthetic cream is recommended as standard. Most of our clients choose not to use anything but you can let us know your preference at your initial consultation.

What are the side effects?

Immediately after the treatment, redness may occur for up to 2 days. This is perfectly normal and nothing of concern. You can be back at work or normal life immediately but may need a little makeup in the first 24 hours. We can help you with this as you leave the clinic.

Are there any specific aftercare tips?

Once the session is complete, we will discuss with you what the proper after care routine is and how to ensure the best results of the procedure.
