Acne Removal Treatment

Clear away stubborn acne and blemishes from your skin

What is Acne?

Acne occurs when oils, dead skin cells, and bacteria are trapped inside the pores. It is commonly seen in the form of whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, and cysts. The condition often occurs on the face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders areas as they carry more oil glands.

What causes Acne?

Acne and pimples form due to various factors. Here are the most common causes of acne

Hormones

Inflammation

Genetics

Stress

Diet

Air Pollution

Vitamin Deficiency

The types of Acne

Whiteheads (Closed Comedones)

These are small, round, white, or flesh-coloured bumps on the skin's surface. This is due to the hair follicles being trapped with dead skin cells, oil (sebum), and bacteria.

Blackheads (Open Comedones)

Blackheads are caused by the broad opening of the skin's surface which exposes the content to air, resulting in heads that are dark in colour.

Papules

Papules can be recognised due to their raised bumps which are red and inflamed. Excess inflammation causes the breakage of the walls of the hair follicles, creating this condition.

Pustules

Also known as 'pimples', pustules are filled with pus, causing them to have a white or yellow centre.

Nodules

Nodules are large, solid, painful bumps beneath the skin's surface. This condition occurs due to the excess sebum, bacteria, and dead skin cells in the hair follicles. Nodules are typically more severe than other forms of acne.

Cysts

Cysts are a more severe form of acne. They are filled with pus, large, and can cause discomfort. If left untreated, scarring is likely to occur.

Eliminate Acne

And Pimples with Glowwis Acnes Treatment Options

Glowwis acne removal treatments aim to reduce or eliminate acne, improve skin texture, and prevent future breakouts. Each treatment is carefully selected by Dr. Sam according to your skin conditions and concerns.

Medi Facials

Glowwis has a range of medical-grade facials and Dr. Sam will advise on the most suitable medi-facial that helps in clearing acne. The acne facials will include machine and manual extraction, and exfoliation using alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs) to remove blackheads and whiteheads, and to clear clogged pores. The LED light acne therapy followed by oil-controlling face masks will be effective in achieving acne-free skin.

Oral Medication & Acne Cream

Acne medications including antibiotics, and other acne creams can be prescribed to reduce moderate to severe acne conditions. Dr. Sam will carefully decide on the suitable medication for each individual, after assessing individual acne conditions.

Chemical Peel

Chemical peels are superficial but medium-depth peels that will remove dead skin at epidermis and dermis levels. Chemical peel exfoliation removes the dead skin cells and helps in getting rid of dead skin and excess oil on the skin, clearing the pores and leading to acne-free skin.

Acne Injection

Injections are used by Dr. Sam to relieve inflammation and shrink large cysts. These are injected directly into an acne cyst or nodule, typically containing a small amount of a steroid, such as triamcinolone , which is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent.

Pico Laser

Pico laser targets acne using ultra-short pulses of laser energy. This technology works by delivering these rapid laser pulses in picoseconds (trillionths of a second), which target various skin problems, including acne. Dr. Sam will perform the laser treatments with his own techniques that have proven results.

Q Switched Laser

Providing the skin with an anti-inflammatory effect with its laser energy, Q Switch Laser helps to reduce redness and swelling that occurs from acne. The treatment is part of a comprehensive approach to acne treatment in Glowwis, especially for addressing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (dark spots) and improving skin texture.

Local Dynamic Micro Massage (LDM)

LDM uses rapid ultrasound vibrations with dual-frequency characteristics, ranging from one hundred to one thousand oscillations per second upon contact with the skin. With the micro-massage effect, the device helps stimulate the natural production of collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid, and fibres within the body, promoting skin regeneration to achieve a clear and smooth complexion.

Gold Plated Micro Needle RF

Gold Plated Micro Needle RF is an effective non-surgical treatment to address skin ageing as well as acne scars and active acne. A specialised device with gold-plated micro-needles is used to create micro-injuries while simultaneously delivering RF energy. The process aids in encouraging the skin's natural healing process, leading to increased collagen production. Dr. Sam integrates this treatment as part of a comprehensive approach to treating acne.
