ACNE SCAR REMOVAL EXETER
Radically reduce acne scaring. For acne scar removal in Exeter, we use collagen induction therapy. The treatment involves a series of needles, penetrating the skin. They are causing thousands of micro-injuries. These micro-injuries will determine the natural process of healing and will stimulate new collagen formation.
It is no need to stay at home for recovery, because you can return to your normal activities. Some redness might be visible for 24 hours, but this will fade soon.
Yes, before all treatments we conduct a thorough assessment and review your medical history.
No, we use topical anesthetics.
You will need to allocate around 90 minutes.
From £299, depending on the size of the area treated.
After a collagen induction therapy treatment, your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin. New collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced after the treatment.
However, it can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen. For the majority of Acne scars, 80% of improvements can be seen after just 2 treatments.
The process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement.
This is your own collagen, so there is no need to wait for a product to break down, meaning the repair is permanent until your body breaks down collagen as it naturally would through aging.
Initially the skin could look red for around 24 hours after the treatment. The skin may become dry and tight shortly after the treatment. This is a completely normal reaction and we are able to provide specialist skin repair cream to help with this.
After this, the skin will look brighter and more vibrant. Approximately six weeks later, the regeneration and repair process starts to tighten the skin and reduce hyper pigmentation.
The number of treatments required will depend on the type of acne scar and its severity. We recommend a course of 3 to 6 treatments as a minimum. This way you will achieve maximum results and more even, smoother skin.
