Between the ages of 12 to 24, at least 85% of individuals experience some form of acne; mostly triggered during puberty or pregnancy as a result of an imbalance of hormones. The excess production of testosterone causes oil-producing sebaceous glands to continue to produce too much oil resulting in the formation of acne.

Acne can leave scarring, redness, and unwanted bumps on the surface of the skin due to picking whilst the acne was active. It is recommended to treat the scarring as soon as possible rather than leaving it due to scars becoming more noticeable and maturing with age as skin loses collagen.

Acne scarring can leave individuals with damaging psychological concerns such as low self-esteem and anxiety. Furthermore, the summer months and hot weather leave us wanting to be make-up free with clear skin, feeling confident in yourself. At the Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we provide professional consultations and treatments for each individual need with time and care, treating acne scarring effectively.

Acne Scarring

Fraxel Skin Resurfacing

This treatment aims to improve the tone and texture of the skin, targeting scarring. The non-invasive procedure encourages new collagen production by stimulating small micro-thermal zones using pixelated type destruction while smoothing out the skin.

Intracel Radiofrequency Microneedling

This treatment uses a fractional radiofrequency microneedling technique which delivers energy deep into the dermis using insulated microneedles which are specifically designed for the treatment. The heat which is transferred tightens and shortens collagen fibres, encouraging further collagen production.

Smartxide Co2 Laser Resurfacing

This treatment is designed to rejuvenate skin, improving tone and texture as well as reducing the appearance of scar tissue. The procedure works by coagulating and removing columns of skin before encouraging healthy skin to the surface using a powerful laser system. There is little downtime with the procedure, making it particularly popular.


The Hydrafacial treatment is widely popular and delivers bright looking skin as it unclogs pores and removes dead skin and dirt. The procedure works by combining cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, antioxidant protection and red LED light therapy. As the results can be seen instantly, this can be a popular treatment for people attending special events or for special occasions.
