Acne Scars Treatment

Acne Scar Treatments

Acne scarring is the most common residual problem associated with the condition. Although acne is treatable, it can often leave you with bumpy, uneven skin. Acne scarring treatments available at The Private Clinic are tailored to your skin's specific requirements. We use a combination of effective treatments to reduce any visible scars and smooth out uneven skin and pigmentation. The treatment plan is compiled based on the severity of your scarring and will be discussed with you during your consultation.

The Problem 

Skin conditions such as acne scarring and excess pigmentation of scars may seem to be a reminder of the adolesence for some, and may certainly play a role in low self-esteem. Thanks to our innovative approach  and the expertise of our specialist medical teams, we are able to offer a range of treatments from topical medical products to laser treatments to clear your skin of acne scars and any discolouration caused.

Skin laser acne scar treatments should be carried out by qualified medical staff in medical clinics.

FAQs

hide
  • What does the treatment involve?

    The Pixel Laser is a high-energy beam of light that is directed onto damaged areas of skin. The laser removes the epidermis and upper dermis on targeted zones, which triggers the body’s natural healing process and stimulates the growth of healthy new skin. The advantage of the Pixel Laser over other laser treatments is that it can treat very small areas of skin leaving the surrounding tissue untouched and undamaged.

  • Is the treatment painful?

    Very few people feel any pain at all with the Pixel Laser, though some experience a tingling sensation.

  • How long does the treatment take?

    This will depend on the size of the area to be treated. Sessions can last from a few minutes to half an hour and we usually recommend a course of three to five treatments every four to six weeks.

  • How soon will I see the results?

    You should start to see results after your very first session of this scar laser treatment, however, the final results won’t be visible until the end of your course of treatment.

  • What is the recovery process?

    For several hours after treatment your skin will feel tight, and look ‘sunburned’ and swollen. It may look pinkish for another five to seven days, while the swelling should go down after one to three days. For this reason you may want to spend a day or two at home, depending on your job. As your skin starts to heal it may flake a little which can last for up to two weeks.
