Our acne scar reduction treatments include the following:
Fotona is an industry leader in the field of cosmetic skincare. The Fotona Fractional Erbium system is an innovative laser solution that repairs damaged skin cells and renews skin appearance. Combined with intensive collagen production, this revolutionary laser treatment works to improve the appearance of acne scars without any downtime.
LaseMD uses targeted laser energy to boost collagen levels and improve skin quality and appearance, including reducing acne scar visibility, with noticeable results after just a few sessions. Your cosmetic therapist will customise the laser treatment to suit you, in order to achieve the best results.
The Dermapen is a safe and minimally-invasive procedure that uses microneedles to create microscopic trauma in deep layers under the skin. This trauma triggers the skin’s natural healing response and stimulates an intensive boost of collagen production, resulting in skin damage reversal and a dramatic improvement in skin quality.
Lutronic ECO2 is an innovative laser resurfacing treatment that erases redness while smoothing and resurfacing scarred and damaged skin. By selectively targeting a fraction of the skin cells at the treatment site, this advanced laser treatment can significantly improve skin quality and appearance.
Acne scars can either be atrophic or hypertrophic. There are three main types of atrophic acne scars:
- Boxcar scars have a u-shape and sharp edges and can range from shallow to deep.
- Ice pick scars are small holes that are narrow and form a V-shape.
- Rolling scars are wide with rounded edges that have a rolling appearance.
Hypertrophic acne scars have a raised appearance and are more common on the back or chest.
Acne Scar Reduction Treatments: Frequently Asked Questions
Acne scars are caused by an abnormal level of collagen production during the acne healing process. Redness and pigmentation are also common following acne healing, due to excessive inflammation.
There are different types of acne scars, including rolling, ice-pick and boxcar scarring, which can each be addressed using different cosmetic treatments.
Laser resurfacing treatments for acne scar reduction involve minimal discomfort. We’ll apply a topical anaesthetic to minimise any sensation or pain. Most people experience nothing more than a slight warming sensation during the treatment.
When undergoing skin needling, most patients only experience mild discomfort during the procedure. We’ll apply a topical anaesthetic to minimise sensation in the area, as well as a cooling mask and healing serums to speed up recovery following your treatment.
Our highly personalised level of service means that we’ll tailor a treatment plan to suit your specific needs, skin concerns, and desired results. As a result, treatment pricing will vary from patient to patient.
During your initial consultation, one of our trained doctors will conduct an assessment of your skin, discuss your situation, and develop a customised plan for your treatment. This will include a detailed breakdown of costs, timeframes and what to expect.
Absolutely! Most patients see a reduction of around 70-80% in acne scarring once their treatment has been completed. One of our highly experienced cosmetic doctors will conduct an initial assessment and advise on the type of results you can expect to see based on your acne scarring.
Laser resurfacing downtime depends on the type of laser and energy of the treatment, with an average of 2-7 days of redness and a sunburn-like sensation before the skin settles.
In the case of needling, your skin will look as though it’s been sunburnt after your treatment, with redness subsiding within 1-3 days, depending on your skin type. While it’s safe to return to work and normal activities after your session, some patients prefer to stay home for the first couple of days, until the sunburnt appearance of their skin has reduced.
