For anyone who has suffered with acne at some stage in their life, the last thing you want is to be left with scars to remind you of that difficult time. Laserase Bolton offers a range of treatments which can help with acne scarring.
Any type of acne spot can lead to scarring, but it is more common when the most serious types of spots burst and damage nearby skin. Scarring can also occur if you pick or squeeze your spots, so it is important not to do this.
There are two main types of acne scars that we are able to treat using a variety of different treatment options: pigmented acne scars and pitted acne scars.
Pigmented acne scars are the skin discolouration that results from having had acne. They can range from pink, red and purple to brown or black, depending on your skin tone and the depth of discolouration. At Laserase Bolton we have three different treatment options for pigmented acne scars: Regen-lite Laser, medical skin peels and skin care regime.
Pitted acne scars are the depressed marks left in the skin’s surface by acne. They can vary in size and shape and are the result of damage to the skin caused by acne. We offer three different treatments for pitted acne scars: Regen-lite Laser, Micro-Needling and Harmony Pixel Laser.
The exact treatment or combination of treatments that we recommend for you will depend on the type of scarring that you have. We offer all patients a free no obligation consultation and at your consultation we will create a treatment plan tailored precisely to you and your skin.
The number of treatments you need will depend on how well your skin reacts to treatment. At your consultation we will give you an idea of how many treatments we think you need. Some people will see a dramatic improvement after just one treatment but others may need more.
