Acne & Acne Scar Treatments in Islington

Ace Skin Health Clinic

Reduce unsightly active acne and acne scarring

Are you tired of battling active acne, or feeling under confident about your appearance because of past acne scarring? Microneedling, chemical peels are two proven techniques that effectively treat acne and improve the appearance of acne scars. We use them in combination with lasers, facials, and LED therapy. All of these treatments help stimulate collagen production, and many of them also gently exfoliate the top skin layer to reveal fresh, rejuvenated skin underneath.

Frequently asked questions

The number of sessions required to effectively reduce active acne or acne scarring can vary from person to person. It depends on the severity of the condition and individual response to the treatments. Generally, a series of multiple sessions is recommended to achieve optimal results. Regular maintenance appointments can then help you retain your new look.

In general, it takes several weeks to start noticing improvements in the skin’s appearance. With microneedling, the process involves creating tiny punctures in the skin to stimulate collagen production and promote healing. This can take time as the skin needs to regenerate and repair itself. Similarly, chemical peels work by exfoliating the top layer of the skin, revealing a smoother and more even complexion. However, it may take multiple sessions and a few weeks for the full effects to become visible.

Your skin may appear dry, red, or swollen in the first couple of days following treatment, but this will soon subside.

While some patients may experience mild discomfort during a microneedling procedure, it is typically well-tolerated. And as for peels, the strength and type of peel solution used will determine the level of discomfort experienced. Superficial peels usually cause a mild stinging or burning sensation that subsides quickly, while deeper peels can be more uncomfortable.

Microneedling involves the use of tiny, sterile needles to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. Chemical peels, on the other hand, use acidic solutions to remove the outer layer of dead skin cells, revealing smoother and more radiant skin underneath. LED Therapy and laser therapy both involve you receiving targeted light energy. We’ll give you all the information you’ll need when you visit us for your consultation.

1. Your Consultation

We will discuss your skin concerns with a view to understand what’s triggering them. Based on the information you provide about your lifestyle, diet, and skincare, as well as the skin examination we’ll perform, we’ll assess which treatment might best help you achieve your skin goals.

2. Your Treatment

The microneedling device will be moved across the treatment area, creating small punctures that trigger the skin’s rejuvenation process. Or a peel solution will be applied evenly across the treatment area and left on for a specific duration, before being removed.

3. Your Aftercare

Avoid direct sun exposure following the treatment, as the skin may be more sensitive and prone to sunburn. Additionally, it is advised to avoid using harsh skincare products or exfoliants for a few days, as this can further irritate the skin.

real reviews

“I originally went to the clinic for a consultation after looking into vein reduction treatments for some time. I was very nervous about the whole process and thought it would be beyond my financial means. Corina was absolutely excellent during both the consultation and the treatment. Everything was first class and if you are even considering it, I would recommend going for a consultation. I can’t believe how easy it was.”
