If you have suffered with acne in the past, the chances are you will have been left with some form of acne scarring, a stark reminder of the sometimes, traumatic condition that may have been with you through puberty and into adulthood. Acne scarring happens due to the skin being damaged, following breakouts of acne pimples. Most acne scars appear on the mid to high cheek areas and are difficult to cover with makeup as the skin takes on a mottled, uneven texture and tone.
I meet people every day who have managed to win with acne, but still struggle with their skin, due to acne scarring. At Skin Perfection in the heart of London’s busy West End and 5 minutes from Harley Street, the world’s capital of cosmetic surgery, we understand how upsetting acne scarring can be. Therefore, we have tirelessly researched and selected the most effective non-surgical solutions to reduce the appearance of acne scarring so that you can enjoy smoother skin with a renewed confidence.
Medical microneedling is a device-led treatment which creates tiny punctures in the skin’s surface. These punctures encourage a healing response promoting new collagen formation which improve the skin’s overall texture.
Medical microneedling requires a course of between 4 to 8 treatments over a matter of weeks for optimum results. We will use a numbing cream to maximise your comfort during this procedure. Expect to experience some redness and tenderness immediately after the treatment, which is a natural response and will subside in a day or so.
Laser photo-facial skin rejuvenation
Photofacial skin rejuvenation works by emitting a selected amount of light energy, selected specifically for your skin concern. As the heat from the laser machine is directed on to the skin, it stimulates collagen and elastin, which helps to heal and smooth out acne scars. The device is designed to recycle any energy that is left on the skin, so no energy us wasted, thus giving you maximum results in the shortest time possible.
A cooling tip on the device hand piece ensures your comfort, during the treatment.
A safe, non-surgical skin resurfacing procedure which can help to retexture skin, suffering from acne scarring, but is suitable for all skin types. Medical microdermabrasion carried out by one of our certified technicians and the device includes a disposable tip, so that there is no risk of cross-contamination.
The treatment offers no downtime and can be used in conjunction with other complimentary skin procedures.
Skin peels and resurfacers
Our in-clinic topical skin peels consist of naturally derived acid solutions in varying strengths which are used to slough away dead skin cells and to promote collagen formation within the dermis. Your skin will be analysed before a peel, so that we can select the right strength treatment for your skin concern and downtime requirements.
A course of treatment can significantly reduce the appearance of acne scarring as well as increase cell turnover and promote a healthy glow.
LED light therapy
LED light helps to promote collagen stimulation, supress inflammation and reduce redness, as well as killing bacteria under the surface of the skin. It can be used on its own or in combination with other skin treatments, including medical microneedling (Dermafrac).
LED light therapy will not only help reduce the appearance of acne scarring but will also aid skin that is still experiencing active acne. It’s a superbly gentle treatment and excellent for keeping your skin healthy, spot free and soothed.
