Acne is often seen as a teenage concern but it can last well into adulthood in some cases, and the resulting scarring can be apparent for some people throughout their lives. At PHI Clinic, we have a number of options for acne scarring treatment, in order to be able to offer a variety of options to suit a range of needs.
Acne Scarring Treatment : Laser
Pulsed Dye Laser
Pulsed dye laser technology aims long pulses of light at the surface of skin in order to reduce the appearance of redness, including acne scarring. The pulsed dye laser device we use at PHI Clinic is called the V-Beam and is completely non-ablative, meaning that there is minimal downtime.
At PHI, we have been known for our treatment of scars, as one of Dr Tapan’s areas of special interest. Laser resurfacing is one of the treatments we offer to reduce scarring all over the body. This treatment is known within the cosmetic industry as being effective for treating concerns commonly regarded as stubborn, like acne scarring.
Acne Scarring Treatment : Alternatives
Ultraformer uses HIFU technology, high intensity focussed ultrasound, to encourages collagen production in the deep levels of skin in order to encourage healing for an improvement in the appearance of scars. As well as acne scarring treatment, Ultraformer can also be used to lift and tighten skin on the face and neck.
Dermapen treatments have become very popular recently, seeing a surge in coverage on social media, especially Instagram. The Dermapen uses microneedling to encourage collagen synthesis, creating a controlled wound that the body’s natural processes then work to heal for a reduction in scarring.
For active acne, and other skin concerns, we have three skincare ranges to suit a range of needs. Among these are iS Clinical, Obagi, and Universkin, three of the world’s leading brands in skin health. Each brand has its own unique strengths in treating concerns, and can be prescribed by our aesthetic therapists.
We were recently visited by the wonderful Diipa Khosla, Brides Magazine Jan/Feb 2019 covergirl, who had a consultation for acne scarring with our medical director, Dr Tapan Patel. She was recommended a course of Dermapen and Ultrasound treatment, performed by our very own Nurse Sarah. You can find this journey on our Instagram highlights, along with stories from other influencers who have visited us.
For more information about our acne scarring treatments, you can book a consultation with one of our highly skilled clinicians. At this appointment, your practitioner will assess your scars and go through your medical history, at which point they can recommend a course of treatment to suit your unique needs for the most effective results.
We always require a minimum of 24 hours between consultation and treatment, to allow you the time to think over the information you are given in this appointment. Book your consultation by calling us on 0207 034 599 today.
