Skin & Laser Acne Scars

Put your best face forward and leave behind the physical and psychological scars caused by acne. Don’t hide behind a thick layer of makeup. Instead, take steps toward reclaiming smooth skin free of acne scars.

Acne scarring is caused by the abnormal production and organisation of collagen fibres during the acne healing process. This can cause pits, abnormal skin contour, redness and pigmentation. Treatments are tailored to the specific abnormality and usually entail a combination of treatments for best results.

Treatment options include:

  • Subcision – to lift pitted scars by releasing deep dermal attachments
  • Fractional non-ablative laser – to resurface scarred areas
  • Q-switch laser- to remove pigmentation associated with scarring
  • Laser or Intense pulsed light to remove redness associated with more recent scarring
  • Dermal fillers to lift and contour rolling scarring
  • Biological stimulating injections stimulates collagen production and stem cell proliferation to renew scarred skin
  • DermapenTM skin needling induces an intense healing reaction to renew and smooth the area of concern


  • Treatment times vary.
  • Costs start from $250 and depends on treatment modality. View full cost breakdown
  • Permanent results can be expected with some treatment approaches.
  • Significant improvements in severe acne scarring can be seen with a multi-modal approach performed by an experienced medical practitioner.

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes acne scarring?

Acne scarring is the result of abnormal collagen production and organisation during the acne healing process. It is often worsened by ‘popping’ pimples, and can take on many different forms including rolling, ice-pick and boxcar scarring. Each respond uniquely to the different treatment modalities. Redness and pigmentation can result from excessive inflammation during the healing process. This can persist for many years and is well suited to our laser therapies.
