Acne Scar Treatment

Acne scarring can be damaging to your self confidence but there are plenty of options to treat the scares and reduce their appearance.

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.

WHY DO ACNE SCARS OCCUR?

Scarring occurs for many reasons but the main cause of scarring is due to previous inflammation in the skin. The greater the inflammation in the skin, the more chance of heavy scarring. Deep spots and pimples that take a longer time to heal are also more likely to leave scarring behind.

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.

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.
