Acne Scar Treatment In Singapore

Diminish the appearance of scars and imperfections on the skin

What is Acne Scars?

Acne scars occur due to severe acne conditions. They often appear in the form of depressions or indentations (atrophic scars) or raised thickened areas (hypertrophic scars). The sizes, shapes, and depths can vary and can occur across all areas of the skin. While some acne scars do fade, they can be difficult to diminish without the correct treatment.

What causes Acne Scars?

Acne scars are the result of the body's healing process after severe or prolonged acne conditions. The other main causes for them would be:


Loss of Collagen

Delayed Healing

Improper Treatment

Type of Acne Lesions

The types of Acne Scars

Ice Pick Scars

Ice-pick scars are deep, narrow, and sharply defined indentations in the skin that resemble small, deep pits. These scars form when the collagen and tissue beneath the skin are destroyed, often by severe inflammatory acne.

Boxed Scars

These scars are broad, depressed areas with well-defined edges. They resemble the scars left by chickenpox and often give the skin a box-like appearance. It forms when collagen is lost due to inflammatory acne.

Rolling Scars

This type of scar has a wavy or undulating appearance on the skin's surface. They are broader and less defined than icepick scars and often give the skin a slightly uneven texture.

Hypertrophic Scars

Unlike the other three types, hypertrophic scars are raised rather than depressed. They result from an overproduction of collagen during the healing process. These scars can develop after severe acne or other skin injuries.

Smoothen Scars And Textures

With Glowwis Acne Scar Treatment Options

At Glowwis, our Ministry of Health (MOH)-certified doctor, Dr. Sam, specialises in tailored treatments designed to enhance the appearance of scars. After a thorough analysis of your skin's condition, he will determine the most suitable approach for you.

Pico Laser

PICO Laser delivers ultrashort pulses of laser energy in the picosecond range and helps to break down scar tissue, stimulate collagen production, and promote skin regeneration, resulting in improved texture and appearance with minimal discomfort and downtime. The treatment is performed using Dr. Sam’s techniques which have yielded desirable results.

Gold Plated Micro Needle Rf

Gold Plated Micro Needle RF combines the technology of micro-needling and radiofrequency to encourages collagen synthesis, improving acne scars, and enhancing product absorption. The treatment helps to create micro-injuries that reach the dermal layers of the skin. Because of this process, the skin will produce new skin tissues to smoothen the appearance of acne scars.


Juvelook Skin Booster contains Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and Poly D-Lactic Acid (PDLA). By injecting the treatment into the skin, the HA molecules provide the skin with moisture, while ultrafine PDLA activates fibroblasts which encourages the production of collagen. This process aids in creating a smoother and even texture by filling in the depressed areas that occur due to acne scars.

Dermal Filler

Dermal fillers help to encourage the production of collagen. This process aids in promoting a smoother skin surface which diminishes the appearance of acne scars. The treatment will only take 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the number of fillers.


Subcisions release fibrous bands that tether scars, which stimulates collagen production and creates a smoother skin surface. During the subcision procedure, Dr. Sam uses a needle or a blade to carefully break the fibrous bands or connective tissue that anchor the scar to the underlying tissue. By releasing these tethers, the depressed scar is allowed to rise, resulting in an improvement in the overall appearance of the skin.

Fractional Co2 Laser

Using carbon dioxide to create a laser beam, CO2 Laser helps to remove the damaged skin layers. Doing so helps to stimulate collagen production which helps with smoothening scars and reducing hyperpigmentation. For acne scars, Dr. Sam incorporates this treatment to precisely remove the damaged outer layers of the skin, allowing newer and healthier skin to replace it.

    General Habits to prevent Acne Scars

    Early Treatment

    Addressing the early signs of acne helps to reduce inflammation and minimise the risk of scarring.

    Avoid Harsh Scrubs

    Steer clear of harsh exfoliating scrubs, as they can exacerbate inflammation and potentially lead to scarring.

    Sun Protection

    UV rays are one of the common causes of pigmentation that prevents scars from healing. Using sunscreenwith SPF30 can provide significant protection to your skin.

    Stay Hydrated

    Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated and support its natural healing processes.

    Balanced Diet

    Consuming a diet rich and balanced with nutrients, vitamins, and minerals helps with skin healing and maintain overall health.

    Avoid Overexposure To The Sun

    Overexposure to sun rays can prevent your skin from healing and darken hyperpigmentation. It is best to apply sunscreen, layer on protective clothing, and put on shades if you're outdoors.

    How to Treat Acne Scars

    Treating acne scars involves a combination of professional treatments and consistent skincare practices. Dr. Sam recommends several effective methods to address this issue:


    Topical Treatments

    Use skincare products containing ingredients like retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), and beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) to promote skin cell turnover and exfoliation.


    Diet And Hydration

    Pairing a balanced diet with sufficient water intake will improve the health and appearance of the skin.


    Consult A Professional

    Seeking a professional helps to identify the main causes, acne scar types, and best approaches to treat the issues

    Why you should consider getting Acne Scar Treatment In Singapore?

    Renew Skin Texture

    Acne scars cause the appearance of skin texture to look more noticeable. Suitable treatment will help smoothen the skin's surface and making it appear more refined.

    Prevention Of Further Damage

    Untreated scars may worsen over time and become more challenging to treat. Taking action early can prevent the scars from becoming more severe.

    Boost Confidence

    Acne scars can significantly impact self-esteem and body image. Addressing them can lead to increased confidence and a positive self-perception.

    Minimise Discoloration

    Some scars may be accompanied by hyperpigmentation or redness. Treatments can help fade these marks, creating a more even skin tone.

    At-home treatments like topical products, exfoliation, and certain natural remedies can have some effect on mild acne scars. However, for more significant improvement, professional treatments are often recommended.

    Early intervention, avoiding picking or squeezing, and seeking professional treatment for active acne can help minimise the risk of developing severe scars.
