Acne and Scarring

View treatments

Appearing as spots and pimples, the causes of this inflammatory condition can often be either hormonal, or due to blockages in the pores from excess sebum and dead skin cells.

At various points in our lives the body experiences fluctuations in hormone levels, with adolescence and the menopause being two significant examples, causing outbreaks of whiteheads, blackheads or pus-filled pustules on the surface of the skin.

The appearance of acne is often an unwanted concern that can be viewed as unattractive, with particularly severe cases commonly affecting the emotional well-being of the sufferer, causing feelings of lost confidence and embarrassment.

Although very tempting, it is important to refrain from squeezing or picking the spots as it can exacerbate the condition and possibly lead to further inflammation or infection.

It is not unusual for people who have been affected by acne to also experience acne scarring. These are the marks that are left behind after an outbreak has caused damage to the skin, resulting in the development of a visibly dimpled effect, which may also be accompanied by some possible discolouration.

Scarring generally fades over time, but it is not always the case that it will completely eradicate, and the condition can sometimes be hard to conceal. this is where our acne treatment in North London come into play.

At Ambra Aesthetic Clinic, acne and acne scarring can be treated through Microneedling, subcision and TCA cross peel aimed at resurfacing the skin and restoring healthy properties to its structure. Deep cleansing and exfoliation can help to keep the skin in tip-top condition. We also recommend that you can maintain a good skincare regime at home with such as ZO- skinhealth and Obagi Medical range, to lessen the likelihood of further outbreaks.

I went to see Dr McMillan for the first time about a year ago so she could revise some badly done under eye filler NOT DONE BY DR MCMILLAN, and she’s done the most fantastic job i had terrible anxiety from the previous injector and was very nervous, I did so much research but decided to go ahead with Dr McMillan as she was so reassuring and honest with it all

I would highly recommend Maryam and her team at Ambra Aesthetic clinic, my husband had dental treatment with straightening and whitening of his teeth and the results are amazing. I have also had various treatments and we are both very pleased with the service, kindness shown and professionalism. Thank you Ambra. See you soon.

Ambra Aesthetics are the place to go to for professional, friendly service. You don’t need to go to Harley Street. Dr M and her team are all experts and really take care of you giving the best treatments and advice. Sam on the front desk is a dream. In lots of places the staff can look scary from doing too much but Ambra you can tell it’s all about discrete subtle tweakments. . Don’t hesitate to go!
