Scaring caused by trauma to the skin, specifically lesions caused by acne, can cause a lot of distress to the person afflicted. They may be medically harmless but such scarring is often a major factor in reduced body confidence. As is with acne, scarring can occur all over the body but is most common on the face where the skin is the most sensitive and has larger pores.

Laser technology has revolutionised acne scar reduction and our Picosure laser is the best of the best when it comes to medical-grade laser equipment – providing patients with amazing results in fewer treatments and with less discomfort than other laser treatments available. Acne scars, however unwelcome, are the result of the body’s natural healing process. When an pimple or pustule is burst, damaging the tissue, the body reacts by filling the damaged skin with collagen which then leaves mass of raise tissue – a scar. The Picosure laser targets this build up of collagen within the skin and breaks it apart with ultra-sport pulses of pressure, allowing the body to re-absorb the excess and eliminate it. The skin will then produce more collagen and elastin in a more even manner, resulting in a smooth texture and even tone.

Typically a series of three treatments will be required for optimal results – but additional treatments may be needed for cases of more severe scarring.
