Acne Scars Treatments
Skin conditions such as acne scarring and excess pigmentation of scars may seem to be a reminder of their adolescence for some, and may certainly play a role in low self-esteem.
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. Here at The Private Clinic, we have a variety of treatments tailored to get rid of and remove acne scars. 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.
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 micro-needling and laser treatments to rid 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. Our acne scar removal skin clinics are located in London Harley Street, Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester and Northampton.

Acne Scars Treatment
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser Skin Resurfacing can help to reduce scars and the appearance of dark pigmentation. It is suitable for all skin types, including dark skin. We have three types of Laser Sin Resurfacing treatments Pearl, Pearl Fractional and Pearl Fusion. The variety of treatments allows us to treat the varying severity of acne scarring in a more effective way. Find out more about our Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment here.
IPL (Intensed Pulsed Light) Photorejuvenation
IPL is a great treatment who are troubled by red pigment scarring following acne. The intense pulsed light is able to target and lighten pigment that is darker than the surrounding skin colour resulting in a dramatic reduction in acne scarring
with minimal downtime. Find out more about our IPL Photorejuvenation treatment here.
Dermaroller / Dermapen
Our dermaroller treatment has been featured on Embarrassing Bodies on Channel 4 * due to its efficacy in treating severe acne scars. Dermaroller treatment is also called micro needling and it involves using a medical roller with hundreds of micro-needles The roller is rolled across the skin to cause micro punctures on the skin surface which then encourages the skin to regenerate and repair itself. The results are smoother and brighter looking skin with a reduction in the appearance of acne scars. To find out more about our dermaroller treatment click here.
Chemical peels come in a variety of forms and strengths and can be very effective at reducing the appearance of acne scarring if regular treatment is carried out. A chemical peel is an intense form of exfoliating the skin, it uses chemical solutions to remove dead cells on the surface of the skin resulting in new smoother skin with a visible reduction in acne scarring. To find out more about chemical peels click here.
A medical microdermabrasion is a great way for helping to improve the appearance of mild and shallow acne scarring. The treatment is performed using a hand piece that lets out a flow of medical grade crystals to remove the top layer of dry dead skin cells. There is also a vacuum function which is great for removing oil and congestion on the skin. The deep exfoliation results in new, soft and smooth skin cells which can help reduce the appearance of mild acne scarring. To find out more about microdermabrasion treatment click here.
Morpheus8 treatment combines microneedling with radiofrequency technology. As the needles create punctures in the skin, they also emit radiofrequency waves which increases collagen and elastin production. This all results in an increase in skin cell turnover which will not only help to reduce acne scarring but will overall improve skin texture for smoother skin.
