Acne Scar Treatment

Safe & effective laser treatment of acne scars

Laser Acne Scarring Treatment

Acne is a very common skin condition that affects 95% of teenagers and adults to some extent over the course of their lifetime. When acne subsides, as the body tries to repair the damage caused by acne breakouts, the body produces collagen, a substance that gives the skin support. If the body produces too little or too much collagen, you will see a scar. Very often acne scars are worse on the face, which means that they are visible and cause the individual to feel uncomfortable. Currently, laser skin resurfacing is the most efficient and effective method to improve acne scars.

Scarring Laser Treatment Summary
Acne Scar Laser Treatment

With laser skin resurfacing your collagen and elastin levels will be boosted, your cell regeneration rate will be increased, and new healthier tissues will be created to replace your marked and damaged top skin layer. Skin texture, tone, and appearance will also be drastically improved.

If you have acne scars you’d like to remove, at the Lynton clinic we have two fantastic devices to treat acne scars. Depending on the type of scar, we will use either ResurFACE technology or SmartXide CO2. We will choose the best treatment for you following a thorough consultation.

FAQs

How does fractional skin resurfacing work?

Minute sections of the skin are targeted with laser light, which penetrates into the tissue, causing small columns of thermal damage which in turn stimulates significant collagen renewal. The surrounding nonaffected areas of skin aid the body’s natural recovery process, allowing dramatic results without significant downtime.

Am I suitable for treatment?

ResurFace treatment is suitable for most people and highly recommended for individuals wanting a brighter, more even skin tone, smoother skin texture with improved skin elasticity, a reduction of wrinkles, reduced pore size and improvement to scars (including acne scars) and stretch marks.

The SmartXide treatment is suitable for both men and women and can significantly improve the appearance of the skin. The first step in treatment involves a thorough consultation to assess your concerns and ensure you are suitable.

How is the treatment carried out?

The skin is cleansed and the handpiece is moved over the skin delivering tiny microscopic laser beams. Typical treatment times vary depending on the skin condition and the area being treated, but will range from 10 to 40 minutes. After treatment the skin is cooled. Protective eyewear must be worn during treatment.

How does the treatment work?

Our award winning ResurFACE treatment works by treating minute sections of the skin, which stimulate significant collagen renewal in the treated area.  The surrounding non-affected areas of the skin aid the body’s natural recovery process for dramatic results without significant recovery time.  As the new collagen cells replace the old tissue the scars reduce in appearance.

Our SmartXide laser emits light in a pixelated fashion to your skin creating small columns of thermal injury to the epidermis (top layer of skin) and dermis (second layer of skin). This small amount of injury to your skin tissue stimulates the process of collagen remodelling and promotes elastic tissue formation.

How many treatments are necessary?

With ResurFace we often advise a series of 3 to 6 treatments for optimal results and we do find that results continue to improve for months after treatment. Treatment is carried out every 4 to 6 weeks but your laser clinician will advise the optimal frequency during your consultation.

With the SmartXide number of treatments required is dependent upon the exact type of treatment chosen. The SmartXide offers a ‘Soft Laser Peel’ and a ‘Deep Laser Peel’. A Deep Laser Peel delivers the greatest improvement for lines and wrinkles and loss of elasticity and requires the fewest treatments. However, the downtime post-treatment is longer. Typically, only 1 session is needed, though some people do opt to repeat treatment after six months for further improvement. Milder treatments will require follow-up sessions after 4 – 6 weeks.

What does treatment feel like?

A warm sensation is felt during treatment which is found tolerable for most clients. We also use a skin cooling device throughout the treatment which can reduce discomfort.

Are there any side effects?

Side effects are rare but could include a small blister which is superficial and would heal within a week or two. Some clients do experience darkening or lightening of the treated skin which is usually temporary and fades over the following months.

We will provide you with aftercare instructions. Please refer to this for guidance. In the case of a deep peel, you may wish to arrange for a few days off work. It is best not to apply make-up for a few days. It is also important to avoid prolonged sun exposure and you should apply sun protection (minimum SPF 50) every day, whatever the weather.

How long does each treatment take?

It takes about 30 minutes to treat the full face. However, some pre- and post-treatment care is required and you will need to be at the clinic for about 2 hours.

What should I expect after treatment?

This varies depending on the intensity of your treatment. You can experience nothing other than mild redness for a few hours, or, in the case of a very deep peel, up to several days of downtime. This downtime may include redness and a feeling similar to sunburn. With a deep peel, it is also normal to experience swelling, particularly around the eyes. Swelling may be present for up to 4 days after treatment. For the first few days following treatment, your skin will form a ‘micro-crust’ and will have a bronzed appearance. The skin will also feel quite tight and it is im-portant that your skin does not dry out (using Vaseline will help to avoid this). The length of downtime will vary depending upon the density and depth of the treatment. We will carefully discuss your treatment goals and expected downtime during a consultation.

My skin looks so much clearer, I even cried the other morning when I saw it and it looked so much better! I am so happy with my results!

Jenny M

I've been using the Lynton Clinic for many years now and I wouldn't entertain going anywhere else for treatment, as they are such a professional company in what they do and how they deliver the treatments. The ladies Kirsty & Emma are so lovely and will advise you of the best treatment to have so that you receive the best results from it. You are very at ease during any treatment as it's all explained and if it's uncomfortable at any point you can ask for a break. They are the leaders in laser machines & they do all the training on the machines so you have full confidence in their ability.

I have had several fractional laser sessions at Lynton Lasers on what was very severe post acne scarring to the whole of my back. The scarring varied in severity from slight pitting to large patches (2cm squares) of hypertrophic scars. These scars were approximately 18 years old and something I had just learnt to live with. I never really believed anything could be done about them. We started the course of laser with a curious mind to see what results could be achieved but with very little expectation. The treatments were quick and it is absolutely tolerable. There was some sunburn type of heat to the area afterwards but pretty much completely gone after an hour or so. The area then scabbed and I kept it heavily moisturised with a petroleum for about a week. The results have gradually been improving over a 6 month period with in this time I probably had about 3 treatments. The results have been outstanding, the scarring is still visible and will never disappear completely but the difference has been life changing. The confidence I feel to wear clothing and swimwear that reveal that area of my body without feeling embarrassed is amazing. I am hooked and am now curious as what else laser machines can achieve for me!!! Many thanks to the Lynton Team.
