Just because you’ve got acne scars doesn’t mean you’ve got to live with them for life. PICOCARE can help.
Almost every guy goes through acne during his life, whether you’re a teenager or an adult. Maybe it’s a smattering of zits across either cheek or just one stubborn pimple on your nose. Your mom kept telling you not to pick at it. Chances are, you did anyway.
The chickens come home to roost in your adulthood with the scars. The trouble is, acne scars are different from other scars- they look different. The American Academy of Dermatology reveals they often have complex characteristics. That means getting rid of them requires a trip to the doctor, who will map out the treatment options for your kind of scar and skin.
Meet Dr Ivan Puah, medical director of Amaris B. Clinic, with more than 20 years of clinical practice in medicine, and provides Pico Fractional Laser, a treatment suited to treat a variety of skin concerns such as dull skin, acne and acne scars.
Pico Fractional Laser delivers ultra-short laser pulse to targeted problem areas. Although the pulses of energy are highly concentrated, the laser’s effect is gentle on the outer skin layer.
The Pico Fractional Laser penetrates deeper into the skin beyond the surface to deliver pulses that cause tiny globules of air or bubbles. During your recovery, collagen will fill up the bubbles, indentations, and depressions caused by acne scars, resulting in a smoother appearance.
Discomfort and trauma to the skin are minimised, and the skin heals faster with less downtime. Its LIOB technology stimulates elastin production for a softer, fuller, and more youthful complexion. The best part is that the treatment works for most skin types, significantly improving appearance.
Beyond that, Dr Ivan Puah also has 14 years of experience performing surgical-based body sculpting treatments if you’re looking to shape up neck down, particularly for conditions such as gynecomastia or sculpting your body and achieve muscle definition through 4D Liposuction (Hi-Definition Lipo).
