Your Trusted Acne Scar Treatment Clinic in Glasgow
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 Even once acne has completely healed and is no longer active, it can still leave behind visible, permanent scarring.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 Glasgow 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
How long does it take for acne scars to go away?
Before we know the answer, it is important to determine the type of scar which we will do in your initial 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 three is required at four week intervals, so you may be looking at a minimum of three months to see any substantial results. With laser resurfacing, many clients experience amazing results after just one treatment.
How will I feel during my acne scarring treatment?
In most laser or microneedling treatments, there may be some very mild discomfort but anaesthetic cream can be used before the treatment if necessary. Laser resurfacing will leave a visible wound, which can cause some discomfort; however suitable pain relief will be prescribed by your practitioner at the time of treatment.
Is acne scarring treatment for me?
The treatments we offer to combat acne scarring are effective for most people. If there are any issues with your suitability for treatment, your practitioner will discuss these with you at your initial consultation.
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 acne scarring treatment.
I still have active acne, can I begin my acne scarring treatment?
No, you will have to wait to begin your acne scarring treatment until your skin is relatively clear. Any treatment can irritate your acne which can often be painful and sensitive.
