In 2024, Ms LP, an active lady in her 30s, consulted Dr Ivan Puah regarding multiple skin issues. Troubled by severe acne outbreaks in her late 20s, she now grappled with lingering acne scarring and sunspots on her face. 

Ms LP, an avid outdoor enthusiast, regretted not diligently applying sunblock, which she believed is one cause of the development of sunspots. Though her acne outbreaks have reduced, she still experiences occasional angry pimples during her menstrual cycle. Her skin issues significantly affected her self-confidence nowadays. 

Consultation & Assessment

During the consultation, Ms LP expressed distress over comedones, sunspots, and acne scarring. Dr Puah evaluated her condition, considering her active lifestyle and past sun exposure habits.  

Ms LP has combination skin, with oily T-zones. Multiple small sunspots and comedones were also seen on the skin, and Ms LP has deep acne scarring on both cheeks. According to Ms LP, she has never tried any aesthetic treatment and she expresses her desire for clearer and healthier skin. 

Treatment Plan 

After a thorough evaluation, Dr Puah recommended a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to effectively address Ms LP's specific skin concerns.

Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling

Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling

RF Microneedling combines the benefits of RF and microneedling to target acne scarring and stimulate collagen production. The micro-needles create controlled micro-injuries in the skin, thus encouraging the body’s natural healing response. Radiofrequency energy penetrates the dermis at a targeted depth, enhancing collagen and elastic production. This helps tighten the skin and improve texture. The dual-action approach will help reduce Ms LP’s acne scars and promote overall skin rejuvenation. 

Erbium Glass Laser Therapy

Erbium Glass Laser Therapy

The Erbium Glass Laser therapy, known for its effectiveness in targeting sunspots and uneven skin tone caused by sun damage, breaks down excess melanin, leading to the gradual fading of sunspots and promoting a more even complexion. The gentle nature of the Erbium Glass Laser minimizes downtime and discomfort, making it an ideal option for Ms LP, a busy yoga instructor, to confidently address her skin concerns. 

The combination of RF Microneedling and Erbium Glass Laser offers a comprehensive solution, addressing multiple skin concerns simultaneously, providing Ms LP with a holistic approach to her skin health. 

Considering Ms LP’s skin condition and objective, Dr Puah recommends a convenient schedule of 8 sessions for the combo treatment, to be done once every 4 to 6 weeks. This allows for easy integration into her busy routine. 

Post-Treatment Care

Following each treatment, Ms LP received detailed instructions on post-treatment care to optimise results and promote healing. This includes gentle skincare routines, sun protection measures, and avoiding harsh chemicals or exfoliants that may irritate the skin. She follows the instructions diligently. 


After 8 sessions of RF microneedling and Erbium Glass laser treatments, Ms LP saw visible improvements in her skin's appearance, tone and texture. She is happy that her complexion is brighter, her acne scars have lightened, and the comedones and sunspots have reduced.
