The Problem: Acne Scars

A horrible part of growing up includes puberty and acne that can happen during it. Whilst this does not last forever, some people unfortunately are left with scarring following a severe bout of acne.

Acne is essentially skin pores that become full of excess oils, dead skin and bacteria. When swelling in the pore breaks through follicles, lesions can form to different extremes. Some deeper than others. Your skin will naturally try to heal itself by producing new collagen fibres, but scarring will occur as these will not be as smooth as the original skin and will have a different appearance.

As you get older, this could become something that affects your self-confidence about your facial appearance.

The Solution: PicoStar Laser Treatment

The good news is that laser treatment is extremely effective for treating acne scars.

The PicoScar uses powerful technology to focus on areas of acne scarring and produce laser light pulses which will break down tissue on the scar and put new tissue in the same place without harming the surrounding skin. In just a few quick and easy treatment sessions, scars are much less visible leaving behind smoother, healthier looking skin.

When you complete a few more acne treatment sessions you will notice the scarring gradually soften on the affected area of skin. The good thing to know is that this type of laser treatment is very quick, and a very simple process.

Afterwards, you will also be pleased to know that you need virtually no recovery time as redness only lasts 1-3 hours following treatment, meaning no time off work is required.

Acne Scar Treatment FAQ

Acne scar treatment refers to the various procedures and techniques used to minimize or eliminate the appearance of scars resulting from acne breakouts. These treatments aim to improve the skin’s texture, reduce the visibility of scars, and promote smoother, more even skin.

Our acne scar treatments utilise advanced laser technology to target the affected areas of the skin. The PicoStar emits precise wavelengths of light energy, which penetrate the skin and stimulate collagen production. The increased collagen helps to remodel and heal the scar tissue, resulting in improved skin texture and reduced visibility of acne scars.

We can address various types of acne scars, including atrophic scars (depressed or pitted scars), hypertrophic scars (raised scars), and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (dark spots). The specific treatment approach may vary depending on the type and severity of the acne scars.

Acne scar treatments typically involve minimal discomfort, and numbing creams or local anesthesia can be applied to ensure a comfortable experience. The advanced laser technology used in treatments is designed to minimise discomfort and reduce the risk of damage to surrounding healthy skin.

The number of treatment sessions required depends on several factors, including the severity of the acne scars and the individual’s response to the treatment. In many cases, a series of sessions spaced several weeks apart is recommended to achieve optimal results. During a consultation, our experienced professionals will assess your specific needs and develop a customised treatment plan.

Yes, acne scar treatments using the PicoStar are safe and effective for various skin types, including fair, medium, and darker skin tones. These lasers offer customiaable settings that allow our skilled professionals to tailor the treatment parameters to each individual’s unique skin characteristics.

Acne scar treatments can significantly improve the appearance of acne scars, but it’s important to note that individual results may vary. While the treatments stimulate collagen production and promote scar remodeling, the long-term outcome may depend on factors such as the severity of the scars, skin type, and proper aftercare.

Our professionals will provide guidance on maintaining the results and minimizing the chances of new acne scar formation.

Yes, acne scar treatments using advanced laser technology are considered safe when performed by trained professionals. The lasers are designed to target specific areas without causing harm to the surrounding skin. However, as with any medical procedure, there may be minimal risks or potential side effects, which will be discussed with you during the consultation.

Always a great service with the guys at Skin Renew London. Currently remove upper arm tattoo – 5 sessions down and going well.


Just had my 3rd session with Jamie, always a pleasure. Will definitely recommend.

Great service, polite, friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming staff. State of the art equipment and exceptionally clean studio

I’m very happy with the treatment and my experience was very nice, very professional Recommend !!!

Really friendly and knowledgeable team! No blisters and part of the chest piece is completely gone after our firs session. See you soon!
Jamie took time to explain the process and answer my questions. He was professional and I felt at ease. Treatment itself was more than the tattoo itself, but was done in stages and was very quick. I look forward to the progress in the coming weeks.
After having a terrible experience elsewhere I couldn’t compliment the experience here more highly. From start to finish it was worlds apart and I’d recommend the clinic and the staff to anyone needing this service. 100% make the effort to travel, the 2 hour journey was well worth it. Experienced staff with the highest end equipment.
