Acne & Scars - Crystal Clear Facetherapy
What is Crystal Clear Facetherapy?
Get smooth, clear and fresh skin with our Crystal Clear Facetherapy targeted for acne and problematic skin types. This treatment uses an FDA-approved machine that utilises Photo Dynamic Therapy light technology to effectively kill and remove the p.acne bacteria that causes acne.
Acne is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that causes spots and pimples, especially on the face, shoulders, back, neck, chest, and upper arms. Depending on your skin condition, our consultant will recommend either the blue or red light for your treatment session. Red light and blue light photosensitizing treatments may be used on different types and severity of acne.
How Does It Work?
The treatment starts off with a comfortable and soothing welcome massage, followed by a Vitamin C scrub that gently exfoliates and remove dead skin cells, refining skin texture. Couple it with skilful, gentle manual extraction to remove excess blackheads and oil seeds, the highlight of the treatment is the delivery of a unique 408nm wavelength blue light that creates a toxic environment for the superficial p.acne bacteria, eliminating the bacteria and controls oil production. With your oil glands now smaller, you are less likely to have blackheads, whiteheads and clogged pores, hence the less likely hood of acne outbreak.
Red light, on the other hand, helps reduce inflammation associated with acne. Red light has traditionally been used for anti-ageing purposes because it helps stimulate collagen. You will feel a slight warm sensation during the treatment. Complete the treatment with a cooling, detoxifying and purifying mask that clears the skin from acne.
Who is suitable for?
Although acne breakouts are more commonly associated with adolescence, the problem can occur at any age. Surface or deep blemishes develop when glands produce an excess of oil, which blocks pores and creates the ideal environment for bacterial growth. While there are many different over-the-counter and prescription formulations, many patients opt for light therapy to treat their hormonal or cystic acne. If you are under 21, you can still enjoy the benefits of this treatment, when you come by with a guardian.
Crystal Clear Facetherapy is an ideal treatment for those who has moderate inflammatory acne or acne cysts.
Safety & Side Effects
Crystal Clear Facetherapy is a safe, non-invasive, lunch time treatment. The light emitted is UV free, natural and not harmful at all. It selectively targets the p.acnes bacteria while not causing any damage to the surrounding tissue.
However, multiple treatments are required to deliver significant results. Our patients who have undergone this treatment had 50% fewer spots at the end of the 4-week treatment period. 12 weeks after the last treatment, they had seen a 72% reduction.
