Here at at Kings Skin Clinic, we offer a range of treatments to improve acne scarring as well as facial rejuvenation depending on the extend of scarring, your skin type and desired aesthetic outcome. In some cases a combination of treatments may produce a superior outcome.
Medical microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy involve a series of fine needles penetrating into the deeper layer of the skin and inducing micro channels of injury with a medical grade device. This will then lead to the subsequent increase in collagen production. The new collagen fibres thicken the skin and fill the atrophic scars, improving their appearance.
Medical microneedling is a natural, safe and effective technique for acne scarring. It is suitable for any age, skin colour, tone and texture.
A course is recommended for desired results.
At Kings Skin Clinic we use a premium, physician based system, Obagi blue peel. It is a low dose of the chemical trichloroacetic acid (TCA) mixed with a special blue base is tailored to your skin’s specific needs by controlling the depth of the peel and the number of coats. It is designed to remove the top layer of the skin to minimize the deeper scars.
The Obagi blue peel is effective in help treating acne scars, as well as improving the complexion and texture of the skin which continues to improve over 4 to 6 weeks. It can be repeated every 6 to 8 weeks until the desired outcome is achieved.
Combining Obagi peel blue with medical microneedling would result in greater cell growth and recorganisation of the skin resulting in healthier, smoother, noticeably rejuvenated skin.
This involves injecting hyaluronic acid into the dermis of the skin to lift the depressions caused by acne scarring. This is a quick, usually painless procedure. In some cases topical local anaesthetic can be applied for more comfort.

I suffered with severe acne scars for many years, and tried many treatments without any results. After a thorough consultation I opted to go for the medical microneedling and was very pleased with the outcome. Very professional!
