Dr. Emil Henningsen
Dr. Emil Henningsen is a luminary in the field of laser and energy device treatments.
In 2014-15, he works under his British NHS registration with Prof. Chu at the West London Dermatology Centre. He is introduced to manual procedures in acne scar revision like subcision and TCA cross. Gradually, he developes his own treatment techniques and builds up an international network of reputable colleagues.
In 2017, he ends his hospital career at the Department of Dermatology at Odense University Hospital to focus on what he is passionate about: Highly specialized treatments of acne scars with a focus on laser treatments and manual procedures.
In 2019, he establishes Cutis Clinic in Odense, Denmark. The location is convenient as he lives close to the clinic in a friendly neighbourhood with his wife and three children. In the summer, he often rides his bicycle or motorcycle to Cutis Clinic, which is located only a mile from his home.
Cutis Clinic in Odense has quickly expanded and now covers three floors forming a modern private hospital offering plastic surgery, dermatology, cosmetic treatments, and skin therapy. Recently, more Cutis Clinics have opened in Denmark.

Initial consultation with Dr. Emil Henningsen
We will reserve twenty minutes for your initial consultation with Dr. Emil Henningsen.
The initial consultation fee is DKK 500,- . All credit cards and cash would be accepted.
At the consultation, Dr. Emil Henningsen will do a complete and thorough examination of your skin in different lighting.
Acne scar assessment is 3D and manual examination of the scars is an important part of the consultation, so we do not offer a digital consultation.
You will have the opportunity to discuss treatment options, expected outcome, downtime, potential side-effects etc.
Treatments may be done on the same day as the initial consultation, or you may return for treatment at a later occasion.
Acne scar treatments
Most patients require a series of treatments for better outcome.
In general, we recommend minimum three months intervals between treatments with energy devices (eg. Genius RF micro-needling, CO2 laser, Erbium laser, etc) as skin healing (neo-collagenisis and dermal remodelling) takes a long time.
Please be aware that Dr. Emil Henningsen is fully booked in certain periods and there may be some waiting time. It is wise to book a few months in advance.
The key to success lie in tailormade scar revision
Most patients look for lasers, because lasers are found everywhere online. However, lasers and energy devices may not be the best treatment option for everyone.
Most acne scar patients will have multiple scar types, and scar morphology will change over time with a treatment course.
Hence, the best treatment is a multi-method treatment suited to your type of scars. We will discuss treatment options based on your skin condition, skin type, time frame, downtime, budget, etc.

Dr. Emil Henningsen will guide you through the treatment process to decide which treatment to choose at any particular point in your treatment course.
Most of the times we combine multiple lasers and non-laser treatments in the same treatment to provide the best outcome.
The use of multiple treatment methods form the basis of your individual acne scar revision program.
Scar revision is a highly complex and variable procedure that requires patience from both patient and specialist to get the best possible results.
Many patients return 4-8 times for treatment with 3-6 month or longer intervals. Most patients treat over 2-3 years.
