What Is Acne Scarring?
At Cosmedics, we see many patients troubled by the after-effects of acne. Even after the acne itself has cleared, the scars can cause lasting disfigurement to the appearance of the skin, causing ongoing self-consciousness, low esteem and embarrassment.
Very often the scars are worst on the face, which means that they are visible. The fact that they affect the texture and smoothness of the skin makes them quite difficult to conceal with make-up, as it is the actual surface of the skin that is affected rather than a colouration issue.
Types of Acne Scars
Acne scars fall into 4 broad categories with different characteristics. A patient may have one predominent type of scarring, or a mixture of all four.
- Scars are sharp and deep V-shapes
- These may be treated with laser or Dermaroller microneedling for facial or body acne scars
- Scars tend to be square shaped and may often be found on the cheeks and temples
- Medical chemical peels can help to smoothen the surface of the skin
Types of Acne Scars
Understanding the nature of the scars is importing in assessing the best possible treatment
- Scars are wide but not deep, lending an uneven wavy surface to the skin
- These can respond well to laser treatment to improve the texture and surface of the skin
- In this case, scars are raised and lumpy; formed by the more severe acne cysts or spots
- These can be treated with a combination of techniques.
Acne Scarring Treatment
Looking to get rid of acne scars for good?
Treatment for acne scarring is not generally available on the NHS but the treatments above are available at private skin clinics such as Cosmedics in London.
Everybody’s skin is different. Researching online is very helpful to understand the condition, but before selecting a treatment, it is best to have a consultation with a skin expert for advice on which treatment option or combination of treatments would be most effective.
If the acne itself is still active, then treatment for that should take priority, as treating the acne will prevent the appearance of long-lasting scars. Talk to Cosmedics about the next steps for you.
The treatment time is approximately 15 minutes
The recovery time is minimal. Any redness subsides in hours
The results will be visible in 3-7 days
The effects will last for 4-6 months
|Treatment||For Women||For Men|
|Nefertiti neck/jowl lift*||£150 or £100 as supplement|
|Jaw slimming*||£300 or £250 as supplement|
Prices for treatments carried out in the same appointment as the consultation will include the £50 consultation fee (note: same day procedures are only undertaken where the procedure is deemed appropriate to do so AND the patient understands the full extent of the costs, risks and potential side effects and is consenting to proceed on that knowledge).
Also should you want to have your treatment at your initial visit and assessment it is the same doctor who will perform your treatment as we only have doctors performing BOTOX® injections.
