Today, there are numerous non-invasive treatments designed to control adult acne for a clearer, more beautiful complexion. At Cutis Laser Clinics in Singapore, we offer seven safe and effective treatments to clear acne and remove blackheads.
- Prescription Medications
If you’re having mild to severe acne, it may be time to consult a certified aesthetic doctor who can prescribe you with the right medications and treatments to control your breakout.
Prescription medications such as retinoids cream containing vitamin A can aid in acne management by unplugging the follicles and encouraging healthy skin cell production. It also protects against UV damage while slowing the natural signs of aging.
Vitamin A stimulates fibroblasts, the cells in the body responsible for developing the tissues that help keep skin healthy and firm.
- Anti-Acne Skin Care
The easiest way to control breakout is using the right skin care that is formulated specifically to control acne.
This is why we recommend the Purifying Aza Cleanser and Purifying Aza Toner by Dr. Sylvia Skin Care. This anti-acne combo contains the active ingredient Azelaic Acid (AZA), a pharmaceutical anti-acne agent that provides antibacterial and comedolytic (does not clog pores) effects. AZA also helps to stop the growth of skin bacteria that causes acne and keeps pores clean.
Moreover, AZA Cleanser also contains BioSulphur which helps regulates hyperactivity of the sebaceous glands while calming redness with its anti-inflammatory benefits while AZA Toner contains salicylic acid which removes excess oil from the pores.
- Anti-Acne Peel
Chemical peels remain one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world and for good reason. These facial peels can help you reveal smoother, more beautiful skin underneath acne, age spots, sun damage, and other skin issues.
The Cutis Anti-Acne Peel is derived from the willow plant and works by penetrating and clearing out pores. If you suffer from mild to moderate acne vulgaris, the Anti-Acne Peel is an effective option.
- Vi Peel
Another popular acne removal option is the Vi Peel. The Vi Peel consists of a special formula designed to improve skin tone, clarity, and texture, while addressing common skin complaints like freckles, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and pigmentation.
Just like most chemical peels, the Vi Peel is applied topically creating a tingling sensation that subsides almost immediately. The peeling process begins about two to three days later and may continue for four to five days.
- Clarifying Facial
While all skin types can benefit from a clarifying facial, men and women with acne-prone or congested skin will find this rejuvenation procedure most advantageous.
This acne treatment in Singapore includes a combination of Diamondtome Microdermabrasion, extractions, and a specialized mask. Microdermabrasion uses a wand handpiece to draw out blackheads and dead skin from the pores.
Together with extractions of whiteheads and pimples plus a specialized mask, these acne treatments help to further remove dead skin cells and other impurities from the skin for a clearer complexion.
- Laser Genesis
Another safe and effective way to reduce acne and heal acne scars is with Laser Genesis Skin Therapy. This technologically advanced treatment for acne consists of a laser treatment that stimulates collagen growth.
The therapeutic treatment uses a non-invasive laser to safely and effectively treat fine lines, wrinkles, redness, scars, and uneven skin texture. The results are consistent and side effects are typically minimal to none. Laser Genesis is relatively painless and requires no downtime.
Most of the time when acne are controlled, it leaves unsightly scars behind. Dermapen has been proven in improving and reducing the appearance of acne scars.
Dermapen is a procedure that uses micro-needling which helps to create new collagen and elastin through a process called collagenesis. The physical nature of “skin-needling” breaks up this fibrous and uneven scar tissue and stimulates the growth of new tissue.
Dermapen keeps the epidermis integrity fully intact, which quickens healing time and causes less pain.
