Please see our frequently asked questions for Acne Scar Removal.


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.

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 much does Acne Scars treatment cost?

Consultations with our experienced skin and laser practitioners are £25 however this cost is redeemable against the price of any skin treatment that you wish to book following your consultation.

Prices for Laser Skin Resurfacing start from £500.

IPL Photorejuvenation treatment prices start from £200.

Microneedling/Dermaroller treatment starts from £280 for single sessions or £850 for a course of 4 treatments.

You can also arrange a consultation to seek advice from one of London’s top Consultant Dermatologists. The cost of a dermatologist consultation is £200. This is only available at our London Harley Street clinic.

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.

Is the treatment painful?

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