Acne scars and acne – problems most of us will face. It often causes immense stress as we try to hide or remove them with multiple over-the-counter products.

They are usually categorized into 2 groups – non-inflammatory or inflammatory acne. Different methods and treatments are used to treat these 2 groups of acne. Most of us might experience more than 1 type of acne at once.
Even after our breakout period is over, we are left with acne scars — which requires time and effort to get rid of. There are different types of acne scars, resulting in a range of solutions to fade the scars.
As we all have different skin types, conditions and habits, it is difficult to pinpoint what the exact cause of your acne is. However, one of the common causes of acne breakouts are clogged pores.
Majority of us are looking for pore and acne laser treatments in Singapore to help to solve our acne and scarring issues while at the same time, restoring a youthful and refreshed look.

- Gangnam Carbon Peel Laser treatment
This treatment involves applying a thin layer of carbon that is spread over your skin. The laser would gently vacuum up the carbon, exfoliating and removing skin impurities. This laser deep cleanses your pores and helps to target the deeper layers of your skin to stimulate collagen growth and get rid of dead cells.
This treatment is especially effective towards:

The Carbon Peel Laser treatment takes about 10 mins each session and can be done every 3 to 4 weeks with no downtime at all.

This chemical Peel Skin Treatment can be used to remove surface acne scars and pigmentation, leaving your skin soft and bright after the treatment.
There may be some redness experienced after the treatment but it will subside after a few days. It is advisable to avoid exposure to the sun during this time as your new skin is more sensitive to harmful UV rays. This treatment requires no downtime at all.
