Acne has many causes and can be a result of medication or hormonal imbalance. While acne is a common problem, the resulting scars from having acne remains a source of discomfort for acne sufferers. There is a multitude of acne treatments available, from topical creams to oral medications. However, to treat the scars left behind, aesthetic treatments like lasers are usually the most effective form of treatment.
Acne scars come in different types, from ice pick to boxcar scars. The best acne treatment method and the resulting price you have to pay will largely depend on the kind of scars you have. Severe scars will likely require more acne treatments or a longer time to heal before a satisfactory result can be achieved. It is of paramount importance that you do your research, and only consider a medical professional who has the experience and qualification to devise an acne scar treatment for you.
Doctors who have more experience in this area, will be able to diagnose your condition with better accuracy. With a more in-depth diagnosis, you can start developing a more effective treatment regimen.
The doctor will also be able to provide you with answers to questions that you may have regarding your acne problems and offer you valuable advice about acne treatments that are available in Singapore.
When you visit a clinic in Singapore for your acne problems, the doctor will perform a proper diagnosis to identify the cause of your acne. The diagnosis would include a skin analysis, and may even require blood analysis and ultrasound or x-ray. It is essential that the doctor carries out a diagnosis, as they will need more information about your skin condition before they start formulating an acne treatment that best suits you.
Depending on the cause of your acne, appropriate treatments will then be devised. The first step will usually be to recommend the correct topical skin care products, including a pH balancing cleanser, toner, moisturiser and sunblock, which should be non-comedogenic and not too oily while providing sufficient moisture to the skin. On the other hand, drying the skin too much would trigger a production of sebum. A good solution to hydrating the skin without oiliness is EHA Hydra-serum with a high concentration of quality hyaluronic acid. That is important as it prevents the skin from over-reacting and producing more sebum. The doctor will then prescribe the treatment that best suits you depending on the severity of your acne scars.
