5 Best Facials to Try if you Have Acne-Prone Skin

For many, acne only happens in their teenage years due to the onset of puberty. But for some, this skin problem follows through adulthood and may result in self esteem issues. Apart from a proper diet and dedicated skincare routine, it’s also highly important that those with acne-prone skin go for regular facials to remove pores and comedones.

If your acne is related to trapped dirt, oil and dead skin, a facial may be the treatment you need to stop or minimise breakouts. Even if not, you’d be surprised at the benefits facials can bring. Below, we round up the best anti-acne facials in Singapore to improve your acne condition.

1. My Cozy Room Boutique Spa

If you’re skeptical on whether facials might even work, try award-winning brand My Cozy Room. This boutique spa, patronised by local celebrities and beauty queens, is known for having the “Best Acne Extraction Facial”  in town. This treatment, performed by skillful therapists with at least 8 years of experience, is a gentle yet thorough extraction that causes minimal pain and redness. It’s effective for acne, clogged pores and pimples and has received many good reviews from customers. In addition, their Premium Anti-Acne LED Facial uses cutting-edge medical-grade LED light to target bacteria that causes the redness and inflammation of acne. The light penetrates deep into the skin, stimulating acne-causing bacteria which causes them to self-destruct. This treatment is generally painless and risk-free too as it’s a non-invasive treatment. On top of that, My Cozy Room also uses products from Germany’s No. 1 skincare brand BABOR, world-renowned for treating skin problems such as acne.

2. Caring Skin 

Another clinic highly known for treating troubled skin is Caring Skin. This 7-year establishment specialises in treating acne and sensitive skin with four types of acne treatment available. Those with oily skin can opt for the classic Acne Clear Up Treatment ($267.50), a procedure that involves exfoliating, double cleansing and bubble masking. Individuals with dull skin would qualify for the Nano Perfector Acne Treatment ($299.60), Singapore’s first ‘rainfall’ facial that uses molecular technology to stimulate collagen and elastin production, resulting in baby skin. Those with dehydrated skin and acne can treat themselves to the plant-based Plantomer Soothing Treatment ($318) to stabilise skin and maximise hydration.

3. Porcelain Face Spa

At Porcelain Face Spa, find six types of treatment dedicated to acne and congestion, with the signature being the Quintessential treatment ($425). This procedure involves a skin assessment followed by a double cleansing facial on top of an extraction facial. A custom blended mask is also created for you depending on your skin type, and a range of equipment is used to perform procedures such as LED light therapy and OxySpray. The final step is a booster regimen (moisture protectant and sunscreen) to ensure longevity of the effects from the facial.

4. Skindays

Skindays might be a relatively new clinic, but expect nothing less from their team of expert aestheticians. The modern boutique prides itself on offering targeted treatments that utilise medical grade equipment at pocket-friendly prices. Those with acne-prone skin are recommended to go for PhotoTherapy LED ($48), a clinically-proven treatment that boosts collagen production and regulates acne control, and Glow Peel ($88), a chemical peel treatment designed to exfoliate the deepest layers of your skin and unclog congested pores.

Location: 39A Pagoda Street, Singapore 059198

Opening hours: 11am-8.30pm (Mon-Fri), 10.30am-5pm (Sat-Sun)

5. Prive Aesthetics

Battling acne is just one part of the process, the other part is having to deal with scars. Prive Aesthetics can help individuals with both acne and scarring problems. Regardless of treatment choice —Crystal Clear Facetherapy, Omega Light Facetherapy, Luminous Glow Facetherapy or Radiance Peel Facetherapy—, they will help with eliminating bacteria, removing unclogged pores and blackheads to prevent inflammation, and decreasing oil production while drying up excess sebum. Viva Smooth, a non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment, utilises doctor-designed formulas to treat mild to severe scarring and damage.

Location: NEX, 23 Serangoon Central, #02-27, Singapore 556083

Opening hours: 10.30am-10.30pm
