1. What causes pimples and blackheads?
The major cause is when your pores get clogged with excess oil, dead skin cells, and dirt. While individuals with naturally oily condition may be more susceptible to pimples, there are certainly many other factors contributing to clogged pores. Not removing makeup completely on a regular basis can cause an accumulation of dirt and oil on your complexion.
In addition, hormonal changes in your body may cause you to produce excess sebum. This can happen when you are menstruating or taking certain types of medication. Your diet may also have a role in triggering breakouts. It is not uncommon for some people to experience breakouts when they consume too much dairy or high glycemic foods.
2. Why should I consider laser treatment for acne in Singapore?
Pimples can be embarrassing and troublesome to deal with. It can make makeup application way more tedious as you might be inclined to use more concealers and foundation to cover up unsightly blemishes. While this can conceal your inflammation, it is simply a temporary solution to the issue. Plus, by putting on more makeup, you will risk getting clogged up even further.
Another thing to note is that over-the-counter topical creams may not always be effective in eliminating them. These products often sit atop your surface and are not able to reach deeper to kill stubborn bacteria. It is best to get rid of breakouts as soon as possible to reduce the chances of scarring. The longer the breakouts stay, the more susceptible you will be to awful scarring. The troubling thing is that once scars settle, they can be quite permanent. This is why undergoing a proper remedy is highly recommended.

3. What can I expect during the procedure?
Once you complete a assessment with our qualified therapists, you may proceed to schedule your first session. On the day itself, your assigned therapist will cleanse, soothe, and prepare you for the procedure. During the procedure, a handheld device will be applied, and you may begin to feel a slight “prickly” yet painless sensation. After about 15 to 30 minutes, the device will be removed and your surface will be gently massaged, soothed, and moisturised. Your therapist will then provide you with easy post-treatment directions to aid in your progress.
4. Is laser treatment for acne safe?
Yes, it is completely safe. There are no surgical instruments, supplements, or questionable chemicals involved in this procedure.
