Welcome to Lazz Aesthetic
Acne/Acne Scarring

Acne is a common skin condition that affects people of all ages and can leave behind frustrating scars to deal with.

Luckily for you, we offer a range of treatments, such as laser treatment for acne scars and pico laser in Singapore, to manage and improve your skin condition. The several types of acne include:

  1. Whiteheads: Small, closed bumps that develop when pores are clogged with oil and dead skin cells.
  2. Blackheads: Small, open bumps that develop when pores are clogged with oil and dead skin cells. Contents of the pore will oxidize and lead to a dark appearance when exposed to air.
  3. Papules: Small, red bumps that are inflamed and tender to touch.
  4. Pustules: Similar to papules, but with a white or yellow pus-filled center.
  5. Cysts: Large, painful, pus-filled lumps that can lead to scarring.

In addition to treating active acne, we offer a range of treatments for acne scarring, which is a possible long-lasting effect of acne.

Acne scarring can have several forms, like icepick scars, boxcar scars, and rolling scars, and can be challenging to treat.

Acne and Acne Scarring

Acne can affect people of different age groups.


Acne is most common during puberty, and affects up to 85% of adolescents. Hormonal changes that occur during puberty can cause an increase in oil production, leading to the development of whiteheads, blackheads, and inflamed pimples. Acne during adolescence can be particularly distressing, as it often coincides with a time when social acceptance is a norm.

Young Adults:

Acne can persist into young adulthood, especially for women. Hormonal changes associated with menstruation and birth control can cause acne flare-ups. Stress and dietary factors can also play a role in acne development.


Acne can develop or persist into adulthood, affecting up to 50% of adults. Adult acne is more common in women than men and can be influenced by hormonal changes associated with menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause. Adult acne can also be caused by stress, certain medications, and underlying medical conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

Regardless of age, acne significantly impacts one's self-esteem and quality of life. It's important to seek treatment for acne to prevent scarring and manage the emotional impact of the condition.

Our treatment for acne scar removal in Singapore varies depending on the severity and type, but can include topical and oral medications, chemical peels, and laser therapy.

Common Causes of Acne

It’s important to undergo processes such as laser treatment for acne scars to prevent acne from developing further harm to your skin.

Excess Oil Production

Sebaceous glands in the skin produce an oil called sebum, which is necessary to keep the skin hydrated. However, when too much sebum is produced, it can clog the pores instead and cause acne.

Hormonal Changes

Fluctuations in hormone levels, such as during puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause, can cause an increase in oil production and the development of acne.


Dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface of the skin tend to mix with oil to clog the pores. This leads to the development of whiteheads and blackheads.

Bacterial overgrowth

The bacteria, Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), live on the surface of skin and can multiply rapidly in clogged pores, leading to inflammation and the development of papules, pustules, and cysts.

Non-Surgical Treatments

Opting for non-invasive treatments (a popular choice for acne scar removal in Singapore) can provide effective results with fewer risks and less downtime.

Lazz Aesthetic advocates for non-invasive treatment as the safer alternative to surgical aesthetic treatments. While surgical aesthetic treatments produce more drastic results, non-invasive treatments are considerably safer, less painful, and have fewer risks for complications, as it does not require patients to “go under the knife”.

Generally with minimal or no downtime, non-invasive treatment is a more convenient choice for those with hectic lifestyles. Additionally, it is also more affordable due to not having the cost of a full medical team for treatment, e.g.: an anesthetist, nurses, and technicians, making them a popular choice for many patients undergoing laser treatment for acne scars.

Laser Treatment For Acne Scars

We provide 2 different laser treatments for acne scars that have shown to be particularly effective.

4D Laser Treatment

4D Laser Treatment is a non-invasive laser treatment that uses four different modes of laser energy to address acne and acne scarring.

Utilising Er:YAG and Nd:Yag lasers,it uses a 4 step process to stimulate collagen production and remodel the skin to improve its texture, tone and overall appearance.

Pico-Nano Combination Laser Treatment

Pico-Nano Combination Laser Treatment is a more intensive treatment that uses a combination of lasers and radiofrequency energy to target acne and acne scarring.

The laser energy targets the sebaceous glands and bacteria that cause acne, while the radiofrequency energy heats up the deeper layers of the skin to promote collagen production and improve skin texture.

This pico laser treatment is more invasive than 4D Laser Treatment and may require a longer recovery time. However, it can provide more significant results for individuals with moderate to severe acne and scarring.

Both have shown to be effective in reducing acne lesions and improving the appearance of acne scars. However, the specific treatment recommended will depend on an individual's unique skin concerns and skin type.

Arrange for a consultation with our doctors to determine whether laser therapy is a suitable treatment for your specific needs and goals!

Injectable Treatment

Commonly used either as a main solution or as a complementary treatment, it is also a popular choice for acne and acne scar removal in Singapore.

Hyaluronic Dermal Filler

Hyaluronic Dermal Filler is an injectable that utilises hyaluronic acid as its key ingredient. Hyaluronic is a substance naturally found in your skin and is known for its hydrating and plumping effects.

By stimulating collagen and elastin production in the skin, it can help to improve skin texture and firmness; minimizing the appearance of acne and acne scars.

Skin Rejuvenating Booster

Skin Rejuvenating Booster contains polynucleotides, which are naturally occurring DNA fragments that stimulate cell growth and repair.

It helps to promote collagen production, reduce the appearance of acne scars, and is effective for treating depressed or indented acne scars, particularly acne scars resulting from cystic acne, while simultaneously improving your skin texture and tone.

Skin Rejuvenating Booster is more geared towards reducing the appearance of acne scars while Hyaluronic Dermal Filler is a more generalised treatment that improves overall skin quality.

Regardless if used separately or in combination, both treatments have shown to be effective when dealing with acne and acne scarring. Arrange for a consultation with our doctors to determine which injectables are a suitable treatment for your specific needs and goals!
