ABOUT ACNE SCAR REMOVAL IN SYDNEY
Medical innovations mean that acne scars are something that you do not have to live with any longer. Much more than a skin condition, acne scars often lead to a lack of confidence and self-esteem. Makeup can only cover so much.
Eden Skin Clinics has the most effective acne scar removal treatment, proven with clinical studies to reduce moderate to severe acne scars for all skin types, including on darker skin types.

Acne Scar Removal with PicoWay Resolve
It works by creating tiny open spaces under the skin where new collagen and elastin are built and can transform the skin over time without disrupting the epidermis. The laser handpiece splits the full laser beam into many tiny micro-beams and this ensures even energy penetration over the treatment area, to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
Visit the PicoWay Resolve page for further information.
Acne Scar Removal with Sublative
Sublative treatment uses radio frequency (RF), which is less intensive than laser. RF is able to penetrate the dermis without harming it. Unlike conventional laser treatments which can damage up to 70% of the epidermal layer in an effort to try and target the location of the scar, Sublative has been shown to only impact 5% of the epidermal layer.
With Sublative, the energy builds an inflammatory response in the upper dermal layer. This means it is subdermal; any scar tissue is rebuilt below the skin layer. In essence, the damaged collagen is being removed and replaced with brand new collage.

WHAT IS ACNE SCARRING?
When acne breakouts penetrate the skin deeply, the breakouts damage the skin and the tissue beneath it from the infection and also from the person physically picking at the skin.As the acne clears, the body tries to repair this damage. During the healing process, the fibroblasts in the dermis produce a substance called collagen. Collagen acts as a scaffold, providing support to the epidermis. Too little or too much collagen in the wrong place will create a scar. If you currently have active acne or inflamed acne, see our treatment page for Acne Treatment Sydney for more information on an effective treatment.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF ACNE SCARS
The type of scar depends on how much collagen your body makes.
- Raised (Hypertrophic) acne scars: firm raised bumps caused by too much collagen and are more common on the shoulders, upper back and chest, and in people with darker skin types.
- Depressed (Atrophic) acne scars: Are the most common type of scar and are caused when not enough collagen is produced.
Atrophic scars are further subdivided into 3 categories:
We don’t really know why some people get more scars and others don’t. If your parents or other family members have acne scars, it is likely that you will scar too. Sometimes even mild acne can result in scarring. The best way to prevent scarring is to treat acne quickly.

Acne Scar Removal – Before & After Photos
HOW DOES A TREATMENT FEEL?
Under the lower to medium settings the feeling is similar to very light pinpricks on the skin. Over the counter anaesthetic cream will be applied to reduce the discomfort under the highest setting. SublativeTM is much less painful than Traditional Fractional treatment.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE TREATMENTS?
4 treatments are required with 4-5 week intervals apart, but the total number of treatments will depend on the skin condition of the patient and how many areas need to be treated. People with severe acne scar may choose to perform maintenance treatments every 3 months until they are satisfied with the appearance of the skin.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME AFTER A TREATMENT?
There is no downtime with SublativeTM treatment. The skin will have very tiny pinhole like marks where the treatment occurred. The skin will have redness similar to light sunburn. This redness calms down within 24 hours and the small marks can be covered up with tinted moisturiser. You can return to work the same day and return to active exercise the next day.
HOW MUCH DO SUBLATIVETM TREATMENTS COST?
