Question: What's the best way to fade scarring/marks on pale, oily skin?

Asked by Ali-Rowley

13 answers

I suffer from oily skin and being very pale, blemish marks take ages to disappear. Is there any topical treatment (that will not clog pores or affect oil production) that could help fade them more quickly?

I've had a lot of success with this product
I use it as a night treatment and it hasn't clogged my pores at all.

Hi Ali,

The best way to remove scarring is to have a treatment called CST - Collagen Stimulation Therapy. We have just trained for this in my salon Beauty Essence.
I have put lots of info on our facebook site:

Collagen Stimulation Therapy ™ is a cutting-edge treatment technique that harnesses your body’s natural powers of healing to increase collagen and achieve incredible results. It is especially effective for addressing the visible signs of ageing, as well as sun damage, scarring, slackened skin, stretch marks, uneven skintone and dilated blood vessels. The procedure is available in many salons that stock iiaa products.

What will happen during the treatment?

During this painless, revolutionary procedure, a skincare professional will apply a topical anaesthetic and will use a small instrument containing tiny needles (1mm – 3mm) to create thousands of microscopic channels in your skin. This causes a minimal amount of bleeding that stops within minutes.

How it works

The body responds to Collagen Stimulation Therapy ™ in the same way as it would to an injury. The small amount of bleeding caused during treatment releases powerful growth factors, part of a natural healing response that results in increased collagen and elastin production.

I had my 1st treatment this week & will be having 5 more over the next 6-10 weeks.
When you look at the photos of the results it's amazing. Not the cheapest option, but the best.

Decleor Prolagene Gel - its amazing from healing scars old or new. its a 200ml tube & lasts ages because its a gel & you only need a tiny amount. i had a nasty scar on my nose, once it had healed iused this daily and 6 months later its barely visable and i still have 3/4 of the tube left. its worth every penny of £36.00.
Good Luck


Hi there
Envrion products are great for all types of skin conditions which I have been using on my clients for 7 years now and have seen great results they use vitamin A which is the only proven ingregient to work into the dermis. I am a big fan of natural products I have put my blog below which you can follow but sometimes you need some science i the products to get a better esult though these product doesnt have the nasty unwanted chemical in them wich is great and the products have a sell by date so you know the ingredients are quite active.
I also offer mild skin peels which helps exfolitate and resurface the skin but without leaving the skin sensitive . It also depends how deep the scars on how quck they will disppear if you want a quicker result the treatment they lady described below CST therapy will be the best results.

If you have any more questions about the products, treatments you can email me

I sell a Moisturiser that is specifically designed for your problem. It is an organic product from the Kimberly Sayer Range called "Tangerine & Calendula Healing Light Night Cream". The Calendula is extracted using the super critical carbon dioxide process which renders the Calendula at its optimum and most pure medicinal state. The Calendula helps to heal acne scars and post inflammatory pigmentation marks. It also contains ingredients to detoxify the lymph to create internal cleansing and blemish control. It's a light, nourishing cream that will help to brighten the complexion while remaining light and completely non pore clogging. It is so healing that i have also used it effectively on eczema and burns.



Derma roller treatments are wonderfully successful at fading most kinds of scarring especially acne scarring or hyperpigmentation marks. Depending on actually seeing your skin there are also some very effective natural treatments which help in combination with the rollers.



Talking from experience, Dermaroller or microneedling/collagen induction therapy (mentioned by other colleagues on here too) is very effective and less invasive then other treatments.
I had mine at Clinica Fiore in Covent Garden, there's a great team of professionals who are super friendly, I do recommend them.
