Acne Scarring

Severe acne can not only be painful and cause emotional distress, but it can also cause scarring. We offer a range of treatments for acne scarring, which can be combined to increase results, if suitable.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is one of the most sophisticated technologies available to us. It removes the top layers of skin, helping to counteract scarring. At Hilton Skin Clinics, we use the Harmony iPixel, manufactured by Alma Lasers. During the procedure, we’ll apply a local anaesthetic to the treatment area and will apply a numbing cream to keep you comfortable. Using the device, the practitioner will then deliver very targeted pulses of light to the treatment area, removing very thin layers of damaged skin cells.

The number of treatments required differs from patient to patient, but typically, treatment courses are 3-6 sessions long, with 4-6 weeks in-between each treatment. The final result could then last for several years.

You might also experience some discomfort and soreness but your practitioner will discuss your aftercare regime with you following treatment.

Electronic Dermaroller EDS

The Electronic Dermaroller EDS is the device we use for medical skin-needling, an established treatment for acne scarring. It stimulates cell regeneration, creating smoother, brighter skin.

During treatment, the practitioner will use the Dermaroller on the surface of the skin, producing thousands of tiny needle-columns which penetrate into the dermis of the skin. These tiny micro-medical needle-columns encourage cell regeneration and repair, enabling skin to recover quickly. The intensity of the procedure, including the depth of the needle and the speed can be adjusted depending on how deep the scarring is and the area that is being treated.

Before the procedure, a topical anaesthetic will be applied in order to minimise discomfort. We can also use a number of topical solutions on the treatment area in order to enable the tip of the needle to move smoothly over the surface of the skin and to further enhance treatment results.

Following treatment, skin may be red and slightly inflamed, but will start to regenerate immediately. It will typically take up to six weeks to see visible results as new collagen builds, new skin cells regenerate and blood supply improves. We usually recommend a course of three treatments with six weeks in-between treatments, although this may differ from patient to patient and any other treatments being used alongside the Dermaroller.

LED Phototherapy

We offer LED Phototherapy for the treatment of acne, but it can also be used to treat scarring. Certain pulses of light can be absorbed by the skin, stimulating a healing response which in turn can promote cell renewal and cell regrowth, creating new, smoother skin. LED Phototherapy is pain-free and can be used in conjunction with a number of different treatments.
