There is no quick fix to treating acne scars but there are different options for treatments, depending on the type of scar, age of the scar, and your skin type. You will be prescribed the correct treatment plan to resurface your skin. You will be left with smoother skin and significant improvements to any facial or body acne scarring.
Most of the acne scarring appears on the face, back and chest. Jacqui will advise on the best treatment for the type of acne scars or acne blemishes.
The consultations are free of charge and will last about 15 minutes with no obligation to proceed. You will be offered a choice of micro-needling /skin needling, DMK enzymes or Chemical Peel for your acne scar treatments.
There is a small amount of downtime following your treatment for the scars. Whether you have DMK or micro- needling/skin needling, your face will be red. This redness will subside during the day. LED does help calm the skin down.
Removing acne scars, especially on more mature people can take a number of treatments. The age of the acne scars also plays a big part. The older the scar, the less likely to get totally smooth resurfaced skin after treatment. However, you will notice a significant difference.
No matter what type of acne scar you have or your age and skin type, it is advisable to have LED light therapy to speed up the healing process of your treatment. Your results are always better with LED.
Acne scar treatment is not expensive if done non-surgically. At the skin clinic in Beaconsfield, the cost of acne scar treatment is from £100. However, one treatment will not be enough. A course of treatments is required to reduce and often remove acne scars. We will discuss costs and realistic expectations during your consultation. The younger you have a skin treatment for acne scars, the cheaper it will be to resolve the skin issue.
With DMK there is no discomfort. With micro-needling/skin-needling, there is a little discomfort. However, the numbing cream offered before the treatment nullifies any real discomfort.
We would recommend that you remove any makeup or sun cream. We ask that you take no prescribed medication for at least 3 hours before your appointment time.
Ice Pick and Box scarring are caused by more aggressive and severe acne. Micro-needling would be recommended for both ice pick and box scarring. This method of treatment produces more Collagen and produces is quicker. In doing this the skin becomes plumper and fuller and flattens out the scars. We would then recommend LED light therapy. LED will help heal, strengthen, and hydrate the skin.
We can treat acne scars on the common areas of the back, chest, and, most commonly, the face. The end results are the same
What are the side effects of acne scarring treatment?
It very much depends on the age of the acne scars, your skin type, your skin tone, the severity of the acne scars, the type of acne scars. It also depends on the ability of your skin to regenerate collagen and elastin to produce new skin cells. It is possible that some or all of the scars can be removed, but one is always realistic of the time frames that may be required to achieve this.
