As we age, acne scars often become more noticeable because our skin loses collagen. The key to effective treatment is to select the best one for each scar type.

"My name is Miriam, I'm 21 years old and I was suffering with acne. I was told that once I got out of my teen years I would be rid of my spots. Unfortunately that wasn't the case and it became a sore spot for many insecurities, makeup would only make it worse and harsh chemical treatments would dry out my skin. I did 3 sessions of laser genesis and IPL as per my doctors recommendation and My skin has never been better. My skin is smoother, brighter, I hardly ever get a zit anymore, my skin tone is more even. I have honestly never been happier with my skin."

Acne Scarring

Xeo Cool Glide Laser is our most effective treatment for acne scarring. The 1064nm NdYAG laser is used as a 5mm beam in low energies with a very short pulse with rapid repetitions to induce changes in the collagen layer. The energy absorbs into the deeper skin, the dermis, to induce collagen remodelling of the scars.

Treatments are normally three or four weeks apart. Usually about six are required. Usually around treatment four we undercut any scars that seem to be slow in responding. Normally these have deeper scar bands holding them down. By undercutting them they bounce back with a much more rapid resolution on subsequent treatments.

The sessions are very comfortable feeling more like you are lying under a heat lamp. The skin will appear a little pink for an hour or so after the session. In men’s beard areas there can be some sensation of pin-pricking as the laser catches the ends of a few beard hairs. There can be some mild and temporary reduction in beard density during the treatments due to its affect on these hairs. Usually afterwards beard density returns to normal.
