Your Trusted Acne Scar Treatment Clinic in Nottingham

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 Even once acne has completely healed and is no longer active, it can still leave behind visible, permanent scarring.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 Nottingham 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.

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.

In some cases the result is not a true scar, but simply an excess of pigmentation. This may fade away over a few months or years, but generally isn't permanent as with other acne scars, which can appear as textured skin.

We offer a range of treatments to combat the whole range of acne scars. You’ll need a consultation with one of our expert skin specialists or dermatologists so that they can assess your scars and develop a treatment plan tailored to you.

WHICH ACNE SCAR TREATMENT IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

The best acne scar treatment for you will depend on the extent of your scarring, the desired results, and your skin type. For this reason, you should book a consultation with our trained and experienced practitioners who will assess your skin. In some cases, combining multiple treatments may have the best effect. If you are suffering from live acne, you need to wait until your acne is under control before seeking acne scar treatment.

Advanced Skin Peels

Our TCA peel is one of our more advanced, deeper Enerpeels. It penetrates down to the dermis and can help target dark marks, discolouration and acne scars.

The usual downtime is about a week, during which time you will experience the skin peeling away to reveal new, smoother skin below the surface.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals to physically remove the top layer of skin cells, which make this treatment particularly good for treating acne scars.

It is a painless treatment that's suitable for those with sensitive skin.

Microneedling

Our Microneedling treatments work by creating thousands of miniscule contact points, leaving your body’s natural healing process to rejuvenate and repair the skin.

It's perfect for correcting an uneven skin tone and pigmentation caused by acne scarring.

Laser Resurfacing

Laser Resurfacing treatments remove surface cells but are targeted so they don’t cause damage to surrounding healthy skin cells.

We offer a variety of Laser Resurfacing treatments including CO2RE, which can target both superficial and deeper layers of your skin, and Fraxel, which penetrates deep into the skin, and Erbium Yag, which works deeper still.

Kleresca

Exclusive to SK:N, Kleresca® is the latest non-invasive biophotonic treatment designed to treat your acne safely and with little to no downtime.

Inspired by photosynthesis in plants, Kleresca® stimulates your skin’s own biological processes to improve your complexion and overall skin quality. Kleresca® is suitable for treating Acne and treating Acne Scarring.

ASK THE EXPERTS ABOUT ACNE SCAR TREATMENT

Our Group Medical Director Dr Daron Seukeran explains the causes of acne scarring, and how it can be treated effectively.

Why does acne scarring occur?

Acne scarring occurs due to the inflammation caused by active acne. There are different types of scars: depressed scars, such as ‘ice pick’ or atrophic scarring; and elevated or raised scars, sometimes known as hypertropic or keloid scars.

Acne scarring can occur naturally, or in many cases patients can exacerbate their scarring by picking their spots. Scarring can affect the back or the chest, as well as the face.

What acne scar treatments are available?

There are several types of treatment that can help acne scarring. In terms of lasers, one of the most effective is laser resurfacing. This is where the surface of the skin is removed very precisely from the affected area, allowing a new layer of skin to form. The treatment can help depressed scars to become shallower, less noticeable and easier to camouflage.

sk:n also has other lasers we may use to help raised scarring, or to treat the redness associated with acne scarring. Fractional lasers need less downtime between treatments, but require a number of treatment sessions.

Often, laser treatment may be combined with other surgical interventions, such as subscisions, where the fibrous tissue under the scar is reduced via a simple procedure using a hypodermic needle.  

What kind of results can you expect from different treatments?

Ablative laser resurfacing delivers the gold standard in terms of results, however, a combination of treatments may be needed to deliver the best results, tailored to the type of acne scarring experienced by the individual.

With a full ablative laser-resurfacing procedure, the downtime can be one to two weeks, but this would be a one-off treatment. With fractional ablative treatments, the downtime may be less – around five days to a week – but multiple treatment sessions will be needed.

Why is it important to be treated by a reputable skin clinic for your acne scarring?

Acne scarring is a difficult condition to treat, which requires a high level of clinical expertise.

You really need an expert assessment to identify the most appropriate treatment, or combination of treatments, to deliver the best result.
