Laser treatments have grown to become an indispensable feature of any aesthetic clinic in Singapore that will provide a cost-effective solution for various skin concerns and conditions. It has done countless of effective work and delivered satisfying results for patients to regain their self-confidence and feel beautiful in their skin again. There are different specialised lasers used for different areas of the skin and body such as pigmentation, fractional resurfacing and non-fractional resurfacing lasers. They are essentially focused beams of light at one wavelength, and works best when targeted at a skin area to specifically treat a particular concern such as pigments or pores.
For those with acne prone skin, laser treatment is a cost-effective solution to help in acne scar removal and lessen the scarring which resulted from acne. At The Clifford Clinic, we have 18 years of experience and expertise in treating acne in Singapore, and refining our acne treatment strategies. We have also uniquely developed effective and safe solutions that differ from other conventional methods of acne treatment, with 10 different treatment technologies for our patients.
What is Acne?
Acne is a skin condition that resulted from hair follicles which became plugged with oil, sebum and dead skin cells. It often causes spots and pimples to develop, including blackheads and whiteheads, and appear on face, forehead, shoulders, chest and upper back. The human skin has pores that connect to oil glands under the skin and produces skin sebum required to lubricate the skin. However, when there is an overproduction of oil within the sebaceous glands, it can get trapped in the hair follicles and enables build-up in the skin together with dead skin cells which causes pimples to form. The skin will get inflamed and the bacteria Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), which lives deep within follicles and pores, contributes to the infection of pimples.
Acne varies in terms of types, colour and pain level. While there are small red, tender bumps with or without pus at the tips, there can also be large, solid and painful lumps beneath the surface of the skin. Though acne is common among teenagers due to puberty, it is also a prevalent condition which affects adults, such as hormone changes or stress. During the acne process, it can also cause acne scars that may leave an emotional distress and impact in people’s lives.
Types of acne scars:
- • Boxcar scars – broad round depressions with steep vertical sides or sharp edges
- • Rolling scars – wave-like depressions with soft, smooth edges
- • Ice-pick scars – deep and narrow, pitted scars
- • Atrophic scars – indented or sunken scars
- • Hypertrophic or keloid scars – thick, lumpy scars
Laser Treatment For Acne Scars
If you are suffering from acne scars, The Clifford Clinic provides various laser treatments available in Singapore for an effective acne scar removal process at a reasonable cost. It is a non-evasive treatment that delivers short, concentrated pulses of micro-fine laser light to reach deep into the top layer of the skin.
Lasers come in a variety of wavelengths and energy settings. As a source of high intensity light, lasers are able to focus accurately on targeted skin area to boost the body’s natural healing process and stimulate collagen production to reveal new skin beneath. This also helps to resurface and smoothen the rough skin texture caused by acne scars, and provides an overall improvement to the skin’s appearance.
It is a fast and simple procedure that can be done during the lunch hour with minimal downtime, so you can resume work or other daily activities conveniently. With regular treatment sessions, the acne scars can be significantly diminished and the skin can appear rejuvenated with a more even texture.
