Chronic Acne treatment

Recently I had an acne outbreak at my jaw area, most likely due to stress at work and my condition didn’t improve much after applying my usual cream for a few days. Actually, this pimple always recurs at the same spot. Since I was sooo desperate, I decided to check out a minimally invasive acne and acne scar removal treatment. This treatment is known to effectively remove acne scars along with the acne, but more importantly for me now, the chronic acne removal is permanent.

When the doctor was ready to see me, he explained that the procedure involved sticking a needle into the affected spots and effectively destroying this thing known as sebaceous gland. WOW its cool to be able to “kill” acne forever =) I was a bit sceptical, but I thought if it works it is surely worth it right? As the Chinese saying goes, “rather dead than not pretty”, so there’s no stopping me! The Doctor was very friendly and he made me feel very at ease. For me, that’s an important factor I consider before doing any treatment.

The doctor started the treatment with applying some alcohol to my jaw area using a gauze for sterilization and then switched on a machine. Apparently it is actually a scientifically proven long-lasting solution for chronic acne. This means it helps to remove acne scars and get rid of acne permanently. This is because, unlike other creams or medicines, the treatment actually destroys the “Sebaceous Glands” which is what causes the acne in the first place. 

Let’s take a look at my face before trying the chronic acne treatment. Don’t be too shocked, please!

Front view under light, that acne really needs to go asap!

The doctor then explained that he was checking for the insulation status of the needle, which is a mandatory process to prevent epidermal burn. Cool device he got there! I have to say that I really appreciate the explanation since it was my first visit and was a bit nervous with the whole idea.

The insulation process took pretty fast, and then the doctor started to work on my face. The needling procedure was not as painful as I had initially thought, oh thank goodness! And to think this painless process will help remove my acne and get rid of acne scars. Miracle!

You guys are probably wondering, how did my face turn out after everything was done?

Result: Complete acne scar removal!

My jaw and chin area were still a bit sore when I took those pictures (I need to find out how to slim down my face quickly after treatments), but it was pretty clear that the pimples had been destroyed completely after the acne and acne scar removal treatment. The truly amazing thing is that even after undergoing all the needling procedures, there seem to be very few acne scars as promised by the staff at the aesthetic clinic. In fact, I would say it got rid of my acne. Now all I need to do is to get rid of the remaining acne scars.

The doctor assured that after the treatment, the recurrence rate of acne would be relatively low due to the sebaceous glands being destroyed. That is really music to my ears! An acne removal treatment that PREVENTS future outbreaks!

I would go out on a foot here and say that Illumia Medical is probably Singapore’s best place to go for acne and acne scar treatments. Why? Firstly, they have all the newest technologies to target acne. Secondly, their solutions are long-lasting and trustworthy, so that’s value for money in my eyes. If you want to remove acne scars, you can also check them out. They are located at #05-12 Wheelock Place (the topmost medical aesthetic Floor)

My only regret is I wish I had sought treatment earlier. Hope my review gives you hope. If you have chronic acne like me, give  Illumia a shot.
