A qualified Dermatologist is the most appropriately qualified specialist to advise on medical, surgical and cosmetic treatments for your acne scarring treatment. Almost all patients with acne scarring require a series of treatments for the most effective results. It’s important to note that while laser treatment for acne scarring is offered at some beauty and cosmetic clinics, these treatments are usually not very effective. The more advanced or powerful laser systems used for treating acne also have some risks involved with treatment. To get the best improvements you need to see someone experienced and qualified to full assess and safely treat your skin medically and cosmetically – i.e. a dermatologist.
The majority of acne scars can be improved with treatment. We can help minimise your scarring with a realistic, medically proven treatment plan to suit you. To ensure long-lasting results, before we treat your scarring we recommend treatment of any active acne first.
There are a variety of treatment methods available, and you should consult with a specialist Dermatologist to identify the most appropriate course of acne scarring treatment for you. The type of treatment will depend on your skin type, the severity of your scarring and what you hope to achieve from the treatment.
