Acne Treatments

Customised Medical Facials

These customised medical facials are handpicked by Dr Cindy to target acne problems. Select from these treatments to achieve acne-free skin.

1. Chemical Peel

Chemical peel treatments involve the application of a formulated chemical solution, that lifts away surface dead skin to encourage healthy skin regeneration. It works by causing dead skin to gently peel off, improving the appearance and texture of the skin. The skin that naturally regenerates is smoother than the old skin, with reduced fine lines and wrinkles.

It is effective in helping to improve the appearance of mild scars, spots, melasma and even treats certain types of acne.

2. Lutronic Spectra Laser

Non-ablative laser treatments involve a light laser that generates heat and penetrates into the deep layers of your skin to stimulate collagen production without damaging the dermis. The non-ablative Lutronic Spectra Laser targets to gently break down post-acne scar pigments so that the body’s immune system can naturally remove the pigment particles, thus helping to rejuvenate and improve skin tone.

Not only can post-acne scars, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tones be targeted, the wavelength of the laser can also be manipulated to fight acne and shrink enlarged pores. As compared to ablative lasers, it helps you achieve the desirable effects with no discomfort and downtime, and is suitable for all skin types.

3. Vitamin C Iontophoresis

Iontophoresis treatments involve the use of mild electric currents to deliver nutrients that penetrate deep into your skin. Rich in antioxidants and an essential component for healthy skin, Vitamin C ions infused into the deep layers of the skin will bring a radiant and natural glow after the treatment.

4. IPL/BBL SYBARITIC (NANNO LIGHT MP50)/ SCITON (BROADBAND LIGHT) 

The light energy delivered by the IPL/BBL machines gently heat the upper layers of the skin without damaging the surface. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate skin cells to regenerate new collagen. The photothermal energy produced eliminates fine vessels that cause redness, and reduces unwanted melanin that result in pigmentation.

5. RF (Radiofrequency)

Radiofrequency (RF) technology increases collagen and elastin synthesis by causing controlled thermal damage in the dermis, which stimulates the self-repair mechanisms of skin tissue. It is commonly used to treat the skin on the forehead, under the eyes, on the cheeks, jaw line, and neck. 

The increased flow of collagen helps the skin to regenerate without the downtime and risks of surgery. 

6. Blue Light Skin Therapy

The Blue Light Skin Therapy is specifically tuned to activate natural chemicals found in the bacteria that causes the redness in acne. When stimulated, these chemicals eradicate the bacteria through natural processes without harming the skin. The light also stimulates cells in your body that help with the healing process. 

It is a gentle, heatless procedure that is suitable even for teenagers to help get rid of acne with no side effects and no irritation. 

Clear & Smooth Laser

You Laser

You Laser combines both ablative lasers that bring faster results but come with a downtime, and non-ablative lasers that are better tolerated by most skin types but require more sessions for obvious results, in one treatment. It is able to improve skin texture and control sebaceous glands that produce sebum to give new radiance to your skin. 

It is the skin resurfacing laser treatment of choice for a quick overall improvement with no downtime.

Quanta Light B System

The non-ablative Quanta Light B laser system is a versatile cosmetic laser that has two different wavelengths, one short and one long pulsed, which allow it to treat a multitude of skin issues such as vascular and pigmented lesion removal. It can also be used in photofacials, skin rejuvenation, and even aids in hair removal.

It is suitable for all skin types as the parameters of the laser wavelengths are easily controlled in this advanced laser.

SmartXide Dot Fractional CO2 Laser

Ablative lasers like the SmartXide Dot Fractional CO2 Laser are effective in improving skin scarring such as indented acne scars, and stretch marks within a short span of time. It involves a laser beam that resurfaces the skin, destroying tissue from microns to millimeters deep in microscopic spots. The “injury” triggers the self-healing mechanism of the skin, stimulating collagen and smoothing wrinkles.

In addition, the SmartXide Dot Fractional CO2 Laser technology is effective for treatment of skin laxity, and reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, blotches and pigmentation. With a 1 – 8 day downtime, it can help acne-scarred patients achieve smoother skin texture and clearer complexion.

Acne Red Mark Laser

The NORSELD Dual Yellow Laser is the only laser treatment that targets the sebaceous gland to destroy the P. acnes bacteria that causes acne without damaging the surrounding skin tissue. The yellow light it emits also shrinks the sebaceous gland to reduce the production of sebum.

Besides Acne treatment, this laser is a flexible, fast and effective treatment that gently corrects a range of other skin problems as well such as Vascular Lesions, Pigmented Lesions and Melasma. It can help you achieve a complexion that looks clearer, brighter, firmer and younger with no downtime.

MicroBotox

Botilinium toxin is a natural, purified protein that relaxes muscle masses. MicroBotox treatment; also known as intradermal Botox®, works by targeting the sweat and oil glands in the skin as well as the erector pili muscles, which are responsible for opening the pores. By temporarily weakening these muscles and glands, sebum production is suppressed and inflammation is inhibited, allowing the skin to rest and heal. 

It is a treatment that can be considered when all other acne treatment options have shown to be unsuccessful. The treatment is customised to the patient’s specific needs and administered under the skilled hands of Dr Cindy, and takes as little as 15 to 20 minutes with minimal pain and little downtime.

 

Acne is a very common, chronic, inflammatory skin condition caused by overactive oil glands. It can present as non-inflammatory lesions like whiteheads and blackheads which form when there is pore blockage.

It can also present as inflammatory lesions like papules, pustules and nodules in its more severe forms. These are red, painful and unsightly bumps that can be the cause of angst and frustration.
