Acne treatment - New Beauty

The Acne Treatment is a new treatment from New Beauty for skin that is prone to breakouts. First, the dual spiral suction plus drainage technology exfoliates dead skin cells and clears clogged pores at the same time, reducing acne infection and inflammation. The face is then treated with a moisturizing serum to control sebum output and encourage collagen synthesis. Future breakouts of acne are less likely if there is insufficient oil. Acne, blemishes, blackheads, whiteheads, pockmarks, enlarged pores, dry skin, acne scars, and dull skin texture and tone are all goals of the acne treatment.

Benefits of the Acne Treatment - New Beauty

Removes Dead Skin Cells: Excess dead skin cells are removed using dual spiral suction and drainage technology to keep pores from becoming clogged in the future.

Hydrating Essence: A medical-grade moisturizing serum may penetrate the deepest layers of the skin to nourish and hydrate the skin tissues while also soothing acne-prone skin. Moreover, it soothes the sebaceous glands to stop overproduction of oil.

Visible Results: You will have less acne breakouts, acne scarring, and various types of acne as the treatment goes on. See as your skin becomes healthier, more moisturized, and lighter with less of an oily sheen!

Non-invasive Treatment: The acne treatment is non-invasive, so there is no need for oral antibiotics, surgery, incisions, injections, or acne medication. Most persons with moderate to severe acne, according to our in-house beauticians, are candidates for this treatment.

How this treatment works

Step 1: The consultant will outline the procedure's steps and theoretical underpinnings. The beauty therapist then performs a patch test to make sure the probe hasn't caused any irritation.

Step 2: The vacuum microdermabrasion and deep cleaning process is started by the twin spiral suction/drainage probe. Exfoliation is used to remove dead skin cells, oil, and grime that have been trapped in the pores and on the surface of the skin. The acne inflammation and infection should gradually subside if the pollutants are removed.

Step 3: To balance the water-to-oil ratio, calm the oil glands from future overproduction of oil, and promote collagen growth, the moisturizing serum is injected into the unclogged skin. This leads to treating acne, less future outbreaks and a finer skin color.

What to expect after treatment

Reduced acne scars: Skin prone to acne is treated with the acne treatment. Vacuum microdermabrasion clears pores, reduces swelling, and hastens the aging process for acne and acne scars.

Fewer acne breakouts: The procedure reduces the appearance of blackheads and acne by hydrating the skin, promoting collagen synthesis, and lowering sebum excretion.

Professional and caring service: Our therapists will follow up with you after the acne treatment is finished to hear about your feedback. Our beautician will customize the most suitable treatment plan for you for optimum treatment outcomes.

Therapy treatments

Dermabrasion

The process of utilizing a wire brush or wheel device to exfoliate the skin is the most typical treatment for acne scars. Those with superficial rolling scars or boxcar scars can benefit from this kind of treatment. On the other hand, it also decreases the visibility of deep scars.

Laser resurfacing

Any type of acne scar can be effectively treated with laser resurfacing. As it exfoliates the top layer of skin and encourages collagen synthesis, it is comparable to dermabrasion and chemical peel treatments. Also, it heals more quickly, taking only one week to do so following the procedure. Also, with just one session, you will see results right away. PICO MLA and Edge Fractional CO2 are the two types of lasers that are typically utilized in Singapore; the latter is used to treat acne scars on the cheekbones and forehand, whereas PICO MLA is used for wrinkles, acne scars, and pore reduction.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are suitable for all types of acne marks and scars, especially deeper scars because they contain acid that dissolves the top layer of skin. TCA Cross is one of the chemical peels that is administered to acne scars to encourage collagen growth. To achieve the best outcomes, it can also be combined with other acne scar treatments like the laser treatments and resurfacing. After three chemical peel procedures, you might see results.

Fillers

Fillers are frequently used to treat persons who have rolling scars or boxcar scars from acne that are noticeable. Moreover, the fillers can be manufactured of your own fat or a commercial gel that resembles collagen. It was then injected into the scar tissue's intended location. Your skin looks smoother and plumper almost immediately as a consequence of dermal fillers. The fillers often last up to 18 months before requiring a follow-up procedure.

Radiofrequency Microneedling

In order to heal acne scars from the inside out, radiofrequency microneedling distributes energy to the skin. The depressed acne scars can be treated with this procedure. Infini, a type of radiofrequency microneedling used to treat ice pick scars while Rejuran S, a treatment that encourages skin regeneration and Hidden RF which is similar to Infini, however has various types of radiofrequency.

Subcision

To cure acne scars, medical practitioners will use a needle to release the collagen fibers. The client gets quick and obvious results thanks to this minimally invasive therapy. Also, this procedure is appropriate for those who have deep and elevated acne scars.

Topical medication

Retinoids and retinoid-like drugs

Medicines that contain retinoic acids or tretinoin are generally beneficial for mild acne. They are offered as lotions, gels, and creams. This drug is applied in the evening, initially three times per week, then daily as your skin adjusts. The clogging of hair follicles is avoided as a consistent result of using them. Using tretinoin and benzoyl peroxide together is not recommended for retinoids.

Benzoyl peroxide

This treatment aims at the surface where the bacteria frequently makes the acne worse. Your skin won't be as irritated by wash formulas with lower concentrations. Benzoyl peroxide can work the best for treating acne scars and active acne.

Antibiotics

They destroy extra skin bacteria and lessen inflammation and redness. You might use a retinoid and an antibiotic together for the first few months for effective acne treatment, applying the antibiotic in the morning and the retinol in the evening. To kill bacteria and lessen the possibility of antibiotic resistance arising, benzoyl peroxide is frequently added to antibiotics. The surface bacteria that aggravate and fuel acne are controlled by topical medicines like erythromycin and clindamycin while benzoyl peroxide increases the potency of antibiotics.

Azelaic acid and salicylic acid

A yeast produces a naturally occurring substance is called azelaic acid. It's antimicrobial in nature. When applied twice daily, a 20% azelaic acid cream or gel appears to be just as effective as several common acne treatments. It lessens swelling and eliminates skin-implant bacteria.

Salicylic acid

This treatment is available in both wash-off and leave-on formulations, may help prevent blocked hair follicles. There are few studies demonstrating its usefulness. Skin darkening and slight skin irritation are side effects.

10

Oral medication

Combined oral contraceptives

The FDA has approved four combination oral contraceptives for women who also want to use them as a form of birth control. Using other acne drugs with this treatment for the first few weeks may help since you might not feel the benefit of it for a few months. Typical side effects of combination oral contraceptives are weight gain, breast soreness and nausea. Moreover, these medications are linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular issues, breast cancer, and cervical cancer.

Anti-androgen agents

If oral antibiotics are ineffective, women and adolescent girls may want to explore the medication spironolactone (Aldactone). It functions by preventing androgen hormones from having an impact on the oil glands. Painful menstruation and sore breasts are potential side effects of this medication.

Isotretinoin

Among other medications, isotretinoin (Amnesteem, Claravis) is a vitamin A derivative. If other treatments haven't worked for someone's moderate or severe acne, this medication might be given. Depression, serious birth abnormalities, and inflammatory bowel disease are among the possible side effects of oral isotretinoin. All people receiving isotretinoin must engage in an FDA-approved risk management programme. Also, they will need to periodically visit their doctors to monitor for any side effects.
