    Skin Resurfacing (Reduce Acne Scarring)

    There are a wide variety of treatment options for acne scars including laser surgery, photorejuvenation, chemical peels, dermabrasion, collagen induction therapy, trichloroacetic acid and even tea tree oils & creams. However, the success of a treatment will vary from individual to individual.

    At London Real Skin we use tried and tested methods for acne scar reduction.

    If you are looking for the best products and treatments for scar removal / reduction then why not book an appointment to speak to one of our highly experienced clinicians who can assess your skin and the best course of treatment.

    Acne Scars: The Treatment Options

    From our Holborn (Central London) based clinic, we provide a full range of Acne treatment options to reduce scarring and improve overall skin appearance. Book an appointment to see one of our Acne Dermatologists.

    Acne can lead to scarring which can affect someone’s confidence just as much as the acne itself. Once the acne is under control, we can treat the remaining scarring.

    Dermal filler improves the appearance of acne scars by lifting the depressed scars. A small quantity of Hyaluronic Acid which as a smooth gel consistency, will be injected under the scar to lift the area and make it less obvious. The results are immediate and can last between 12 to 18 months.

    Laser Skin Resurfacing for Acne Scarring – At London Real Skin we also use an Erbium YAG laser to treat acne scarring. The laser works by producing energy in the mid infrared invisible light spectrum which can be used to precisely target skin and water-holding tissue (the scar), leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. This creates a controlled thermal injury or wound that leads to remodelling of collagen. As a result the skin appear smoother and the scars are less visible.

    Micro-needling for Acne Scarring – At London Real Skin we also use The SkinPen microneedling device that causes controlled micro-injuries and stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. The micro-injuries trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to remodelling of collagen and elastin, therefore making the skin look smoother. A course of 4 to 6 sessions is necessary to treat acne scarring and optimal results can be seen when combine with other treatments like dermal filler.


    What are the benefits of acne scarring treatment?

    After the acne scar removal the skin will appear smoother and the scars will be less obvious. During the following days after the treatment the skin will be more hydrated and the texture improved. The skin will begin to look clearer with less acne scarring.

    What is involved in acne scar removal treatments?

    During a consultation, one of our practitioner will examine your skin. They will determine if you are suitable for this procedure. If so, photos will be taken before the procedure.

    The skin will be cleansed with an antiseptic solution and the practitioner will mark the areas to inject. A topical local anaesthetic cream will be applied to your skin. It will be left on for about 20 minutes.

    After the local anaesthetic is removed the practitioner will start injecting. Most injections will be done within the subcutaneous tissues.

    Photos will be taken after the procedure, and this allows the practitioner to compare the results.


    What are the risks or potential side effects of acne scar treatment?

    There may be some bleeding during the treatment. As a result, there may be some bruising and swelling in the injected area that can last for 24 to 48 hours. Your practitioner may recommend applying ice for 15 minutes afterwards on the injected area to minimise swelling and to make it more comfortable.


    What aftercare is required?

    Aftercare will vary but usually you will be required to keep the skin moisturised. Your acne specialist will be able to guide you on the level of aftercare required.
