Goodbye SCAR

Reviewed by Dr. Hun Kim Thao

Scar Treatment Push Them To The Moon

Keloids: the condition in which scars protrude from the skin surface, has a red color. Compared to those of lesions, the keloid’s size and shape are of an equal or bigger magnitude. Keloids do not affect health or pose any danger, but they are visibly unattractive. At Grace Skincare Clinic, we analyze and evaluate customers’ scars’ condition, age, stiffness, problem area, as well as scar’s causation to advise you how to treat keloids in the most effective way. Grace Skincare Clinic always prefers using methods that are painless and require customers less recuperation time while delivering the best results. We also frankly exchange with customers on treatment time and expectations.

Recessed scars, acne scars: Recessed scar usually occurs in cheek, nose tip, caused mainly by acne and chickenpox in adolescence and puberty. Recessed scar treatment requires patients’ perseverance in order to achieve the highest therapeutic results. There are many techniques for treating pitted scars, but at Grace Skincare Clinic, and we encourage and address stem cell derma roller or PRP (platelet-rich serum) as the methods to restore and regenerate new skin structure, stimulating collagen and self-healing mechanism to fill up the scar tissues. At Grace Skincare Clinic, we put aseptic measures and medical hygiene as top priorities.

Is Acne Scar Treatment Painful?

We have many dear clients who suffer from a variety of different types of scars (pitted scars, boxcar scars, hypertrophic scars, ice pick scars, rolling scars, etc). The most frequently asked question when our dermatologists discuss various scar treatment methods such as micro-needling, scar removal, TCA CROSS is about pain. To answer this question, first, let’s learn about the mechanism for acne scar treatment!

Is Acne Scar Treatment Painful

The mechanism for acne scar treatment

The common mechanism for effective scar treatment is creating micro-lesions. This helps the body to stimulate natural collagen production which helps to “fill” the scar. Of course with this mechanism, some feeling of pain is unavoidable. An accurate assessment of the degree of pain depends upon:


Your mentality will affect your feelings during acne scar treatment. Many clients stated that they thought the first treatment would be more painful due to their anxiety, but they found that it was not as bad as they thought. And, in their following treatments, they felt less pain and more comfortable.

Human pain tolerance

Each person has a different tolerance to pain which can vary widely. Pain tolerance can also increase with time and life experiences. Each person’s pain tolerance can also increase with time and life experiences. So sometimes people have acne scar treatment with the same method and in the same location but some of them feel more pain and others feel less pain.

Treatment equipment

High-quality medical-grade treatment equipment will treat scars efficiently and precisely and will prevent unnecessary invasion, tearing of the skin, or damage to surrounding skin tissues, thereby reducing the pain.

Dermatologist’s expertise

A Dermatology expert with years of experience will positively affect the outcome of the acne scar treatment and generate healthier skin. They also increase the clients’ feelings of comfort and confidence during the treatment, thereby reducing feelings of pain.

While any discussion of pain may sound intimidating, you never need to worry because there are many ways to reduce pain during and after treatment:

Pain-relieving methods

  • Local anesthesia: before lift-up scar or micro-needling treatments with PRP, our licensed and trained Nurses will anesthetize your skin to reduce the pain.
  • Other pain relief methods: we also utilize ice packs, cooling mineral sprays, or soothing cream medications which all can provide comfort and soothe your skin after treatments.

Many clients acknowledge that when they are treated at the Grace Skincare Clinic, the pain is not as much as they had imagined it would be. And they expressed that it was definitely worth the benefit.

0-09-2019 "I would love to thank Dr. Hun Kim Thao and her amazing staffs for helping me through a skin improving journey over an almost year while I was staying in HCM. I received acne facial and peel every other week and the service was superb! Each procedure was well explained and Dr.Thao was very attentive. I loved her holistic way of approach to improve patient's skin. Not only she prescribed very effective acne gel but also shared great tips such as reducing the amount of simple carb intake, cutting down sugar, and most importantly highlighting the importance of getting enough sleep. She even recommended a well known doctor in town who could help me with my sleeping problem. In addition, the price was very reasonable and I was very happy with all the service I got from Grace Skin Clinic. Oh Dr. Thao even asked her staff to make me a cup of tea one day as she she thought I looked overly exhausted. I was very moved. How warm hearted she is! I will definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to check up their skin and improve their skin. Amazing place!"

Youngjoo Shin – Expat living in HCM 

This place is amazing; they help me improve my terrible skin condition which had affected my identity, and my confidence for many years. I have been visiting Grace Clinic during summer time for the past two years, and every time I am here, they create a different program in order to fit my skin condition and my limited time. Furthermore, people from Grace Clinic always greet me with warm hearts. They once invited me to have boba tea with them which made me no longer feel like a customer but a friend which it has created a friendship overtime. I cannot stress how highly I would recommend this place. Again, they are amazing and very professional. There is one thing, you can do walk-in just fine but it would be better if you schedule the appointment so they can prepare and create the best service for you.

I absolutely love the ladies of Grace Skincare. I was staying in Saigon for 6 months and came here with acne and a congested skin from my travels. So happy I found them! Their prices are reasonable compared to other “expat” clinic that I went to. I bought the 10 facial package for a really good price and am really happy with the result of my skin after following all of their consultations. Acne has cleared up and now we’re focusing on my other skin concerns such as dark spots and hyperpigmentation. I highly recommend this clinic. They truly want you to walk out with skin you feel confident in. I’m going to miss this place and the ladies I got to connect with during my time here.   Amazing results · Expert facials · Great deals · Professional products ·Licensed skin care professional · Experienced skin care professionals

Deanna Hong – HCMC, Yoga Instructor

Hey guys it’s been 3 weeks since we came for our treatment. I can honestly say it’s the best I have had done.  Andrew and I look fresh without being overdone. We both had people say how refreshed we look after our holiday. Honestly they wouldn’t be saying that if they knew how much beer and yummy Vietnamese food we consumed when we were there. I can honestly say Andrew and I will be back. And I am telling all my friends how fantastic you guys are and how professional the consultation was. I have yet to find someone in Australia who is so thorough. Thank you, Kylie

Ms Kylie, HCMC, tourist

I had a acne treatment here last month and now it's improved a lot. I must say that this place is very professional, modern equipment, especially the thoughtful doctor! I'm impressed!  

Ms Nana, HCMC, tourist

Alexis Linh Ly, HCMC- Business Owner

The owners are wonderful people. I had a good experience and can sincerely and highly recommend everything about Grace Skincare Clinic!

Sandra Menhart – New York, NY, Visiting Profesor

I was so embarrassed with the scars and pigmentation marks on my face. These are from old sports injuries and harsh products on my legs from childhood accidents. I am fed up with using so much concealer makeup on my face and am never able to wear a skirt with confidence. I heard about the Grace Skincare Clinic pigmentation lightening treatment from a friend.  I took 6 treatments & used skincare product as Dr. Thao  instructed  and now my skin is beautiful and permanently clear. It was worth every penny.

Laura May

as Tet is coming, I highly recommend this place for a weekend retreat, skin detoxing or even an urgent package to soothe and smooth your skin. I got back my healthy skin after just 02 week following the instruction of Dr Thao Hun and it cost me 200,000 for medical consultation fee only. Wonderful!
