Your Trusted Acne Scar Treatment Clinic in Bournemouth
According to the British Skin Foundation, 28% of the UK population suffers with acne and 95% of acne sufferers say it impacts their daily lives. Even once acne has completely healed and is no longer active, it can still leave behind visible, permanent scarring. The good news is, there are a number of innovative treatments available to help improve the appearance of acne scarring. At our sk:n clinics in & near Bournemouth we are able to offer expert advice from our qualified doctors, plus proven-effective treatments to address acne scarring. Acne scarring is caused by the body effectively putting ‘too much effort’ into healing the wounds caused by acne, causing an excess of collagen built up in the skin. This collagen may stay in place permanently, creating acne scarring.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is acne scarring treatment right for me?
The acne scarring treatments we offer are effective for most people. If there are any issues with your suitability for treatment, a doctor or nurse will talk this through during your consultation and will discuss alternatives.
I still have active acne. Can I start acne scarring treatment?
No, you will have to wait to begin your acne scarring treatment until your acne is not active, and your skin is relatively clear. Having treatment could irritate your acne which can often be painful and leave your skin feeling sensitive.
How long will the results last?
In most cases the results will be permanent. However if you suffer from acne again after having acne scarring treatment, there is a risk that new scars will form and you will require further treatment.
How long does it take for acne scars to go away?
Before we can answer that, it’s important to determine the type of scarring you have, which we will do in your consultation. It is essential we wait until your skin is almost clear of acne to begin treatment. As an example, many of our clients see great results from microneedling where a course of 3 is required at monthly intervals, so you may be looking at a minimum of 3 months to see any substantial results. With laser resurfacing, many clients experience amazing results after just 1 treatment.
Does acne scarring treatment hurt?
During most laser or microneedling/dermapen treatments, there can be very mild discomfort, but we can apply topical anaesthetic cream if necessary. As laser resurfacing removes the epidermis, the thin top layer of the skin, to encourage collagen production, this can cause some discomfort. However we do use numbing cream on the area to minimise any discomfort.
