Acne Scar Treatment
There are numerous treatments available for acne scars which can improve and soften the appearance of scarring. Given the complexity of acne scars, a combination of treatments is required.
Hydrafacial is a mild non-invasive, non-surgical treatment which causes minimal damage to the surface of the skin and is designed to enhance the skin by directly targeting free radical damage.
Laser skin resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is a more aggressive treatment approach to skin damage or scars. Some parts of the skin will be completely renewed. This treatment requires down-time and a visible healing process.
Laser treatment for dark skin
Treating dark skin with lasers requires experience, special skill and state-of-the-art equipment. At the Skin Specialist Centre we specialise in laser treatments for every skin complexion, from fair to dark.
