Acne Scarring

Feel beautiful again

Living with acne or living with acne scars can severely affect your self-confidence. Scars can even contribute to longer term problems due to them providing easier access for parasitic elements into the skin, which can lead to flare-ups and other blemishes as time passes. We have 3 available treatments at Riverbanks that can remove your acne scars, leaving you with a newfound positivity and clearer skin to go along with it.

Procedure

You’ll always know what to expect

There are three types of procedure depending on the treatment you require. Your doctor will create a treatment programme that is specially tailored to your needs.

Acne Scarring

Microneedling

Microneedling harnesses and encourages the natural power of the skin to regrow and repair itself. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment helps those looking to reduce the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks.

Acne Scarring

Secret RF (Radio frequency microneedling)

Secret RF is an innovative approach to delivering fractional radio frequency (RF) energy that targets all layers of the skin with minimal damage. This multi-layered treatment will address any unique concerns you may have, tailored for your individual needs during each customised session at our clinic.

Acne Scarring

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser Skin Resurfacing is a high-tech, non-invasive treatment designed to give you back a smoother, more youthful complexion. It’s the gold standard for treating acne scars and other skin conditions.

At Riverbanks, we pride ourselves on making you feel comfortable, relaxed and able to ask questions at any stage. Your acne scar removal treatment will be carried out professionally, with minimal pain and the appropriate numbing. Following the procedure there may be some redness. Laser skin resurfacing treatments particularly leave some significant redness that will disappear in time.

I have been visiting Riverbanks for a couple of months now to have treatment for my active acne and scarring. The first couple of treatments I had done was a skin peel which worked a wonder and I am now currently having treatment done to get rid of the scarring. Everyone is so welcoming from the moment you walk in and the clinic itself is very clean and tidy. I have noticed a huge difference in my skin and other people are beginning to notice how clear it is looking too. I would definitely recommend Riverbanks to anyone who is looking for the same kind of treatment!

FAQS

Treatment Questions

  • What is the treatment used for? add_circle
    All of our acne scar treatments are used to remove acne scars from the face, neck and body.
  • Is the treatment painful? add_circle
    Our treatments are minimally invasive and where necessary we use local anaesthetic or numbing creams so that patients find the procedures as comfortable as possible.
  • When will I see results? add_circle
    This depends on the treatment. For example, patients who have Secret RF sessions typically see results after their second or third treatment which can be 2 months after their first treatment whereas patients who undergo laser skin resurfacing tend to see results 1 month after treatment.
  • How long do the results last? add_circle
    Once your current acne scars are reduced or removed by our treatments, they won’t return. However, acne is a chronic dermatological condition that requires maintenance so if you do have recurring acne, our treatments won’t stop new scars forming.
