Anyone know of any reputable and trusted Dermatology Surgeons in London or the UK who treat tethered, rolling, box, ice pick scars?

Recommended Posts

I've tried researching online and have only come across Dr H Consult (Dr Asif Hussein) and Dr Firas Al-Niaimi. However a lot of their reviews are negative with quite a few people claiming that they use very aggressive and expensive treatments for depressed scarring with mixed results... A lot of people have recommended Dr Tony Chu, however it appears that he has retired as of December 2019. 

A google search seems to indicate that before retiring he recently worked at a private clinic called Skinmedico in Chiswick, London. Apparently a nurse called Juan Lopez is the founder of this clinic and the clinic claims that he was 'trained by Dr Chu'. Has anyone in London had successful treatments with Juan? I can't seem to find much information or reviews on his acne scarring treatments - apart from 3 videos on their instagram page showing him carrying out TCA cross, PRP and Dermapen treatments on some guy (which seem like very low level treatments for the type of scarring I am suffering from).

I'm reluctant to go to a consultation with Dr Asif Hussein and Dr Firas Al-Niaim as some people regret going to them according to this forum and many comments on their instagram pages. Does anyone know who is the best since Dr Chu retired? Researching into these specialists is exhausting and confusing! I'm just not sure who to put my trust in nowadays and there doesn't seem to be that many UK-based specialists for these specific types of acne scarring!

Best to email a few of them and get some pricing/what they offer.

I'm seeing Dr Anil currently. 

Dr H posted on here a while back insulting everyone who said negative things about him.

P.S. I'd avoid anyone who pushes you towards laser, they just want your money.
