Acne is a follicular disease characterized by excessive sebum secretion, inflammation and scarring.

It can affect both teenagers and adults. Left untreated, acne can lead to permanent scarring which can affect your self esteem and confidence.

Here in Lim Clinic, acne treatment is individualized according to the patient’s skin and profile. We have a wide array of treatment regimes.


Acne Facial Wash & Topical Creams

Facial  wash and creams are an important part of the treatment regime for managing acne.Most creams contain Benzyl Peroxide which is antibacterial.

Oral Antibiotics

Oral antibiotics like tetracycline or doxycycline are a good option for moderate and severe acne .Bacteria cause infection and inflammation in acne which lead to scarring.Hence killing and reducing the bacteria in the skin will help to reduce  and cure acne outbreaks.This will in turn reduce the chances of scarring.

Inno Plus Microneedling Acne Treatment

This RF system uses very a fine 33 G microneedle to deliver RF waves to destroy the P. acnes bacteria and sebaceous glands of the follicles. This not only reduces acne outbreak but may permanently cure the acne by destroying the sebaceous glands.

Acne scars are also improved tremendously due to new collagen formation.

Spectra Carbon Laser

This involves applying a layer of carbon lotion followed by a series of laser light therapy. This will cause mild exfoliation of the dead skin, resulting in a smoother and more radiant skin.
