Acne scarring is a common concern for many individuals who have experienced severe acne. These scars can vary in type and severity, including ice pick scars, rolling scars and hypertrophic scars. Acne scarring occurs when the skin’s healing process after an acne breakout leads to the formation of scar tissue.

Addressing acne scars is essential for improving skin texture and the overall appearance of the skin surface. Our clinic offers specialised acne scarring treatment in Sydney to help manage and reduce these scars effectively.

Causes of Acne Scarring

Acne scarring is caused by the skin’s response to inflammation from active acne. When the skin loses collagen during the healing process, it can result in different types of acne scars, such as deep pitted scars and keloid scars. The formation of scar tissue beneath the skin surface can create an uneven skin tone and texture.

Treatment Options for Acne Scarring

We offer a variety of acne scarring treatments in Sydney, with each designed to address different types of acne scars and improve skin texture:

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are used to exfoliate the outer layers of the skin, reducing the appearance of acne scars and promoting a smoother skin surface. This treatment can be particularly effective for treating superficial acne scars.

Healite ll

Healite ll is a non-invasive light therapy that supports the healing process of the skin. It is beneficial for reducing inflammation and aiding in the treatment of acne scarring.


Hydrodermabrasion combines exfoliation and hydration to treat acne scarring. This treatment helps to remove dead skin cells and promote a more even skin surface.

eCO2 Laser Resurfacing Treatment

ECO2 laser treatment is a form of fractional laser resurfacing that targets deep acne scars. It stimulates collagen production, helping to improve the skin texture and reduce the visibility of scar tissue.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy

IPL therapy uses light energy to target pigmented scar tissue and improve skin tone. It is an effective treatment for reducing the redness and discolouration associated with acne scars.

Plasma Pen

Plasma pen treatment uses fractional plasma energy to treat various skin concerns, including acne scars. It helps to reduce scar tissue and promote smoother skin.


Microneedling, also known as skin needling, creates micro-injuries in the skin to stimulate collagen production. This treatment is effective for improving the appearance of deep acne scars and enhancing overall skin texture.

Laser Scar Treatments

Laser scar treatments focus on reducing the appearance of acne scars and improving skin texture. These treatments are suitable for various types of acne scars, including hypertrophic and keloid scars.

Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing

This laser treatment targets acne scarring by promoting collagen production and skin renewal. It is effective for treating deep pitted scars and improving the overall skin surface.


Maintaining Clear Skin

In addition to professional treatments, maintaining a consistent skincare routine is essential for managing acne and preventing further scarring. Regular exfoliation, using appropriate skincare products and protecting the skin from sun exposure are crucial steps in maintaining clear skin.
