At Aesthetics of Liverpool, our Clinical Team consist of experienced leading professionals who specialise in providing innovative aesthetic and skincare treatments to improve this common skin condition.
Earlier this year, the British Skin Foundation reported that 28% of the UK population suffer from a skin condition called acne and up to 95% of which, declared that it affects their lives on a daily basis, often resulting in embarrassment and public humility.
Acne can become active and inactive throughout life, especially during the teenage years. In most cases acne can leave behind visible scarring, some becoming permanent.
At Aesthetics of Liverpool, our Clinical Team consists of experienced leading professionals specialising in innovative aesthetic and skincare treatments to improve acne scarring.
How Aesthetics of Liverpool can Help?
At Aesthetics of Liverpool, we are able to offer expert advice from our highly specialist team, who practice and implement proven effective treatments to address this skin condition.
Acne scarring is caused by the body effectively putting too much effort into healing the wounds, causing an excess of collagen builds up in the skin. This collagen may stay in place permanently, treating acne scarring.
What does Acne look like?
In some cases, the result is not a true scar but simply an excess of pigmentation. Unlike acne scars, acne generally isn’t permanent and can fade away over a few months or years, appearing as pitted or textured skin.
Are all types of Acne Scars treatable?
At Aesthetics of Liverpool, we are extremely confident in helping you achieve outstanding results for all types of acne scarring.
Macular Acne Scarring
Macular Scars appear upon the site of the skin condition and feature dark patches of uneven skin pigment.
Box Acne Scars
Box Scars are circular shaped scars, appearing with steep sides, and look similar to Chicken Pox scarring.
Rolling Acne Scars
Skin undulations are caused by damage just below the surface. These scars are wide and shallow and are medically referred to as Rolling Acne Scars.
Ice Pick Scars
Ice Pick Scars resemble open pores of the skin and can be quite large in appearance, being both deep and narrow. Due to their appearance, these scars are medically referred to as Ice Picks.
How do I know this treatment is best for me?
Aesthetics of Liverpool offer a range of treatments to combat a whole range of acne scars. You will firstly require a medical consultation with one of our Consultants so that they can assess your scaring and develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs. We are confident that we can achieve outstanding results for you, returning your skin to a healthier complexion.
What treatment options are available?
The most suitable treatment may be either one or a combination of the following: ENDOLIFT®, Advanced Medical Grade Skin Peels, Mechanised Micro-needling, Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), Laser Resurfacing, Advanced E-light, Co2 Laser or IPL, Low-Level Light Therapy and even the use of Mesotherapy and Hyaluronic Acid Fillers, can prove to be effective. Depending on your personal presentation, we will tailor a plan especially for you and ensure, at all times, you are fully informed and comfortable.
ENDOLIFT® is a cutting edge procedure used for remodelling of both deep and superficial skin layers, skin tightening, stimulating collagen production and, when necessary, the reduction of excess fat.
Aesthetics of Liverpool are the first Clinic in Liverpool & Merseyside to introduce ENDOLIFT® to their patients.
ENDOLIFT® uses tiny, microscopic endoscopic lasers (these can be as thin as hair strands), these are inserted through the skin into the hypodermis layer.
The laser then produces selected heat to melt away the fat in the adipocytes that creates volume in these problem areas, resulting in reduced volume. This process along with the selective laser beam used with ENDOLIFT® creates immediate skin retraction due to the activation of neo-collagenesis.
ENDOLIFT® stimulates the natural process of collagen production, which is why the results come progressively over the months after the treatment.
Many of our patients notice impressive results immediately after the initial procedure.
Advanced Medical Grade Skin Peels
This procedure sees a chemo-exfoliant agent – gel, liquid or mask – applied to an area of the body where the acne scarring persists. First, the chemical peel sinks into the layer of the skin and stimulates peeling. Then, it eliminates surface skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production, unifying skin tone, reducing blemishes, and more.
This cosmetic skin treatment uses a mechanical pen device with tiny needles that rapidly puncture the skin. It induces a natural healing response in your skin – something we lose through the ageing processes. A micro-needling treatment can significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles and is effective for acne scars and other conditions.
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)
This minimally invasive treatment involves using a medical-grade roller with fine needles, which is worked over an area of skin to help stimulate collagen production. It is used to reduce acne scars, tighten loose skin and pores, rejuvenate aged hands, reduce fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, pigmentation, and promote hair growth.
This type of skincare procedure involves using lasers to improve skin texture. There are two different types – ablative or non-ablative lasers. Ablative lasers include carbon dioxide or erbium for removing scars, warts, deep wrinkles, and finer lines. Non-ablative lasers use pulsed light for rosacea, spider veins, and acne-related skin concerns.
This technology combines IPL technology with Bipolar Radio Frequency to warm but not destroy the target. It has all the main advantages of light and laser-based devices, as well as the ability to treat lighter hair and is safer on darker skin types than IPL alone. The higher total combined energy can be delivered without the risk of epidermal damage as well.
Co2 Laser or IPL
The former is a deep ablative treatment for more intense cellular turnover. CO2 lasers remove columns of skin in a precise matrix to a depth beneficial to the healing process. The latter is a non-ablative fractional laser that works by delivering pulses of light energy to target different pigments within your skin. As a result, healthy tissues are also unharmed.
Low-Level Light Therapy
This laser therapy stimulates healing while using low levels of light. Different wavelengths and outputs are applied directly to a targeted area. The body tissue then absorbs the light, with the red and near-infrared light causing a reaction. Damaged cells then respond with a physiological reaction that promotes regeneration.
Mesotherapy Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
This treatment is administered via a series of injections using tiny needles that rehydrate the skin. These are inserted into an automatic Meso Gun device and can be performed on almost all body areas. Discomfort from the treatment is minimal due to the ultra-fine needles used to carry out the treatment.
