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

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 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.

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.

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 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.

Loved my experience here, Emma was so helpful and my treatment was amazing!!! I’ve had laser before and it can be uncomfortable in places but this pain free laser is worth every penny, I didn’t feel a thing?!! And my skin looks great, so happy I decided to do this, thank you

Donna Morris

I've been a client of Kirsty's for some time and cannot rate her or the clinic highly enough, Kirsty and the team are professional, knowledgeable, and hugely experienced in laser and skin care, they offer a plethora of solutions to skin and body concerns and generally a lot more than perhaps you initially realise therefore it's worth looking on the website where you'll find an extensive list of treatments, I would not go anywhere else for laser or skincare, I understand they are introducing new treatments in the new year so look forward to trying them!!

I feel much more confident now and don't have to worry about always having to cover the birthmark up
