Acne Scar Treatment in Surrey

Why do acne scars occur?

Scarring occurs as a result of poor acne treatment.

There are three main types of scarring:

  • Atrophic scars – meaning loss of tissue. These are often seen as shallow depressions or small holes in the skin (ice-pick scars).
  • Hypertrophic scars – where excessive tissue is formed.
  • Pigmented scars – more common in dark skinned people.

How can acne scarring be treated?

Acne scarring can be treated in a number of ways. Dr Tailor and her team will be able to advise you of the best one(s) for you. These include:

Fractionated CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser

Laser treatment works best on pitted scars and will help the scar to become smaller, tighter and flatter. The treatment will stimulate the production of collagen, tighten existing collagen in the tissues and re-surface the skin.
You will need a course of 3-5 treatments at 6 weekly intervals.

Dermapen (Micro-needling) treatment

Microneedling treatment works best on pitted scars. It will help the scar to become smaller, tighter and flatter by stimulating the production of collagen.
You will need a course of 5 treatments at 6 weekly intervals.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) ‘Dracula’ Therapy

PRP ‘Dracula’ therapy works best on general scars and will aid healing. It will help the scar to become smaller and tighter, as well as stimulate the production of collagen.
You will need a course of 3-5 treatments at 6 weekly intervals.

ZO Medical Skincare

The ZO medical range is very effective at treating pigmented acne scars. These products contain prescription medication and are only available from a qualified doctor, such as Dr Tailor.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers will help to lift the scar and are an excellent treatment for pitted scars.
You will only require one treatment, but it will need to be repeated at least annually.

Are the results guaranteed?

Most of these treatments work by causing a controlled injury. This stimulates a healing response and ultimately the production of new collagen and elastin.

People differ in the way that they respond to the healing process. Some people will produce less collagen and elastin than others. Therefore, it is difficult to predict the exact results of each treatment. However, the vast majority of our patients report excellent results from these treatments.
