Laser Scar Removal and other Treatments Acne Scarring:


An Acne skin type can be that of clogged, blocked pores, blackheads, whiteheads, excess oil, pimples, and pustules or a combination of these things. Acne causes can be hormones, hereditary, stress-related and medications can have an impact too. Environmental conditions and lifestyle or dietary choices can contribute to the condition and management of acne as well.

Acne is highly treatable and manageable with our professional treatments and home care regimes and we also have a number of skin treatments that can tackle acne scarring such as pitted skin or post inflammatory scarring.


Acne scarring occurs in the dermis, which is the area of skin immediately below the surface that acts somewhat like a cushion. When people suffer from acne, the dermis becomes inflamed as the body natural healing process kicks in and attempts to repair the wound created when scaly skin, pimples or blackheads are burst or otherwise removed.

In more severe acne, the body can effectively put "too much effort" into dealing with the wound, meaning that there is an excess of collagen and fiber built up. This collagen may stay in place permanently, creating the scarring. This scarring looks like a pit in the skin, sometimes known as ice pick scarring.

There is a wide range of acne treatments, all work towards the same goal of removing the external layers of the scar tissue cells, leaving the scar either heavily faded or completely removed.


The main treatments are:


  • Skin peels and chemical peels using materials designed to force the body to shed the surface cells.
  • Microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals to physically remove the cells as well as unclogging pores, this treatment is particularly good for treating acne itself as well as the scars.
  • Dermapen is a device used for medical purposes, which breaks down old scar tissue in order to stimulate skin cells for growth. This reproduction then results in the creation of new tissue layers with collagen and elastin fibers, helping to improve blood supply.
  • The device will gently glide over the skin, penetrating the layers that are closest to the surface, up to a depth of 2mm, to create several tiny needle abrasions. The treatment encourages the body to react through the formation of new elastin and collagen fibers. When the skin responds to the treatment, it thickens and plumps, which in turn minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, scarring, and fine lines.
  • Laser treatment is specially targeted so that it won't cause damage to ordinary, healthy skin cells but kills the bacteria under the skin.
  • Derma rolling is great for acne and scarring as it stimulates the natural healing process speeding up the elastin, collagen, and fiber, which is the makeup of our skin.
  • Plasma Fibroblast is a non-invasive treatment that focuses on lifting and tightening loose skin on the face and body, with long-lasting results. Delivered by a trained Practitioner, the plasma device used is fitted with a small surgical probe which creates electrical energy, which at the right distance from the skin ionizes the oxygen and nitrogen in the air to form a small electrical arc, similar to a tiny lightning bolt. 


Which treatment is best will depend on the extent of the scarring, the desired results, and the skin type of the patient. For this reason, consultation and full skin assessment are offered with trained and experienced skin experts to help the patient decide. In some cases, combining multiple treatments may have the best effect.
