Acne Scarring Case Study

Renatto Alves, 27, A retail shop assistant from London came to Skin Health Spa to seek help with his Acne Scars. Read a case study of his treatment and the options available to treat scars. 

"Throughout my teenage years growing up, I suffered acne. It has always irritated me because of it’s appearance and also sometimes it would be uncomfortable and itchy. I have used facial cleansers, moisturisers, toners and supplements but nothing has worked. I still continued to get little white bumps and as I was getting older the acne damage was causing small indents in my skin.

I finally decided to do something about it. I visited Skin Health Spa for an initial consultation. This was my first visit to a beauty clinic and I was a little embarrassed however the staff were very nice and the clinic looked very clean and new, I was impressed.

Soon after arriving a qualified doctor was inspecting my skin and the acne damage. I was advised laser and derma roller would help make my skin smoother and reduce the scarring. Then was given a microdermabrasion to prepare my skin for the first treatment of derma roller. It was a relief something was being done professionally so quickly.

In total I had three derma roller sessions spaced a month apart. The actual roller is like a pincushion that rolls over the skin. Beforehand an anesthetic cream is applied to help reduce the pain of the roller. It worked but still I could feel the pins, it was a bit painful. Afterwards my face was really red, like sunburn. I was assured this was perfectly normal. The first time I was quite shocked by the initial appearance but the red was gone after an hour. Between treatments I kept up my usual routine of keeping my skin cleansed and moisturised. Plus I used sun protection cream every day.

After the derma roller sessions I could notice a big improvement especially with the white spots, which I am happy to say I never get now. Also, the actual scarring was reducing. I was hoping for a more radical difference but this was the first time I had actually had any improvement in my skin acne since I was a teenager.

Following the derma roller treatments I had three sessions with the Affirm Laser at Skin Health Spa’s London city clinic. These sessions were spaced every month and a half. Each time I had to wear glasses and the actual session was only ten minutes or so. The Affirm Laser destroys old skin cells and stimulates the body’s natural healing process. So I was removing old cells and replacing these with new fresh skin cells.

After six months my skin was finally much improved - my friends noticed. The white spots completely gone and the regeneration of my facial skin was no soft and the scarring has almost gone too. The benefit is still ongoing as my skin recovers from the treatments. Next year I am going to do another wave of treatments. The result is very good. No itchy skin and the appearance is beautiful.

Thank-you Skin Health Spa." 


Skin Health Spa’s acne treatments has years of experience and our acne treatments are available at all our clinics: London Marylebone, London City, Manchester, Dorridge, and Nantwich (Cheshire). 

Since 1999, Skin Health Spa have developed a number of tried and tested treatments that can greatly reduce or remove all signs of Acne and Acne Scarring effectively and quickly, leaving you with a clear complexion and ready to face the world confidently.

Our fully trained staff will meet with you to discuss your options and develop a personalised treatment plan to help you overcome your Acne. This may include the use of N-Lite Laser, Microdermabrasion, Chemical Peels, Derma Rollers and take home products.

Acne scarring results when the visible remnants of acne are permanently left on the skin after the acne itself subsides. There are different ways that we can improve acne scars. The treatment plan may be different from one patient to the next. 


All areas of the body can be treated, although most commonly treated areas include:

?               Facial Acne

?               Acne on your Chest

?               Acne on the Back


Our proven method using a combination of different treatments including Peels, Laser, IPL, Microdermabrasion and Derma Rollers treatments improve the post effects of acne and the scarring that acne can leave behind. All these treatments promote collagen production and improve the texture. Our treatments involve an advanced form of deep exfoliation, encouraging skin renewal, removing the superficial layers of the skin. Laser, IPL and Derma Roller treatments stimulate the production of fresh, young cells and collagen, promoting new collagen growth, resulting in smooth healthier looking skin.


At your consultation with our practitioner will discuss the appropriate treatment plan to suit you.


The effects of Acne Scar Removal treatments are long lasting. Once patients have finished a course they may choose maintenance treatments at a later date to refresh the skin.


Treatments take between 30 to 45 minutes, a course of treatments may be necessary. 


All our clinics, in London, Manchester, Birmingham (Solihull) and Cheshire (Nantwich) offer Acne Scar reducing treatments.
