Did you know?
As cited by the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology in 2019, “In a community-based study in Singapore, acne was found in about 88 percent of adolescents aged 13 to 19 years. In another study, 41 percent of adults treated at the National Skin Centre in Singapore had experienced acne since adolescence, although the majority presented with adult-onset acne. Acne is also likely to be a significant contributor to psychological distress, particularly in adolescents. About half of patients reported that they are “rarely” or “never” comfortable with their acne. Twenty-eight percent of these patients reported self-esteem concerns related to their acne, while more than 25 percent reported that they felt “depressed.” A majority (60%) shared feelings of concern due to scarring caused by acne. These statistics highlight the importance of effective and timely treatment of acne.”
This excerpt from the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology shows often acne occurs in our society and how deep it hurts those suffering from it. This makes it crucial for acne patients to treat the condition as quickly and effectively as possible.
Dream Clinic has been treating those suffering from acne for years and can help you.
What Causes Acne?
Acne is a common skin problem that usually appears when the pores are clogged with dead skin, oil secretion, and bacteria. Hot and humid weather conditions can cause pores to clog more easily if cleansing is not done properly. Sometimes, acne may heal on its own if you do not pinch or disturb unless there is a severe outbreak in a large area of the skin.
Regardless of the cause of acne, the skin condition can be troublesome and bring a person extensive physical and psychosocial negative effects. It can damage a person’s surface and underlying skin layers leading to flat discolored scars, thick visible scars, and indented skin. People suffering from the condition feel bad walking around in public with the skin discolouration. Waking up with several large, red, and tender skin lumps can make someone feel shy and can result to low self-confidence.
This condition is linked to numerous negative psychosocial behaviours like social isolation, reduced employment prospects, low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression.
Acne can impact a person negatively in other ways. Seek treatment early.

Understanding Your Grade of Acne
The treatment of acne is dependent on the grade of your condition.
There are four major grades of acne
Grade one characterized by comedones and few papules
Grade two characterised by papules and few pustules
Grade three characterized by papules, pustules, and few nodules
Grade four characterized by nodules and cysts
Knowing the grade of your acne will determine the treatment required.
If you are not sure of your acne grade, contact us for an evaluation and treatment recommendation.
Complete Solutions to Treat Acne
Each grade of acne has a treatment regime that may consist of one or more of the following acne treatment options;
Medical Grade Topical Skincare Products
Used in the treatment of mild acne, these are clinically proven skincare products backed up with scientific research and compounded with ingredients to treat and prevent acne.
Oral medications are usually recommended when you have moderate to severe acne. The medication is to reduce bacteria and control the production of sebum. The medicines are usually antibiotics, or isotretinoin.
Medifacials are paramedical strength facial treatments designed for all skin types and to treat skin conditions like acne.
This technique not only treats acne from the root (dermis) but also leaves your skin feeling refined, invigorated, and brightened. The beautiful thing about this technique is that it is customized according to your personal needs and goals.
(Carbon Laser Peel)
The Carbon Laser Peel is a non-invasive, non-surgical deep cleansing and rejuvenating acne treatment. This is effective for controlling acne, exfoliating and rejuvenating the skin. It also helps with eliminating blackheads and whiteheads to clean up pores.
The therapy works through the application of carbon powder, which penetrates deep into the pores and absorbs dirt with the help of laser light.
This process exfoliates the skin and vacuums any debris in the pores. It reduces inflammatory acne, acne marks, superficial acne scars, and stimulates collagen growth for radiant skin.
At Dream Clinic, all our acne treatment solutions help to achieve optimal results. We start by controlling your existing acne issue, followed by treatment for the acne scars left behind.
