        Encourages skin cell turnover to prevent clogging of pores
        Reduces oil production
Azelaic acid cream
        Kills acne bacteria
        Dissolves dead skin to prevent clogging of pores

 

Price:
From $20 for a clinical-grade retinoid cream. All prices are subject to GST.

 

 

Chemical Peel

IYAC’s chemical peel uses a naturally derived exfoliative to benefit acne-prone skin by:

  • Dissolving excess oil
  • Removing built-up of dead skin and unclogging pores
  • Its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties

 

When peel treatments are repeated at regular intervals through the year (1-2 months for a mild peel, 4-6 months for a medium peel), the skin becomes calmer and clearer, with reduced acne marks and smaller pores.

 

Suitable for oily and blemish-prone skin to address the roots of acne with subtle downtime.

 

Price:
From $385 for a single session. All prices are subject to GST.

 

TCA Cross

TCA CROSS is the chemical reconstruction of skin scars (CROSS) using trichloroacetic acid (TCA). This can be a standalone treatment or combined with subcision and/or a laser treatment for more significant results.

The TCA CROSS procedure involves depositing a tiny amount of high concentration TCA onto the surface of the atrophic scar. This causes a local inflammatory reaction to trigger collagen formation to improve the appearance of the scar.

Suitable to treat ice pick acne scars and large pores.

Price:
Single session from $300. All prices are subject to GST.
 

Laser Circuit

IYAC’s Laser Circuit is a combination of laser and light therapies Acne(Dual Yellow Laser), Laser Circuit(Laser + IPL) designed to target acne bacteria, reduce acne redness and inflammation and to stabilize oily skin.

 

There are 3 steps for an all-rounded treatment:

1. Ultrasound Cleansing – for a gentle yet deep cleansing of the skin

2. Laser and Light therapy – a customized combination to suit your skin type and skin issues

3. LED Gentlewaves® – the finishing light treatment for healing and radiance

 

Suitable for all skin types to target various acne-related issues.

 

Price:
From $450 for a single session, S$2100 for 6 sessions. All prices are subject to GST.

 

 

BB Laser

The BB Laser, a more intensive treatment than the lasers in the Laser Circuit, offers a jumpstart to boost skin quality. By penetrating to the lower part of the epidermis, this non-ablative skin resurfacing laser renews damaged skin and stimulates collagen production, improving acne-prone skin by:

  • Lightening superficial acne marks/scars
  • Reducing acne inflammation
  • Tightening pores

 

Suitable for all skin types to refine skin and target stubborn acne marks.

 

Price:
$800 for a single session. $2160 for 3 sessions. All prices are subject to GST.

 

 

Rejuran

Rejuran® is a skin rejuvenating treatment using DNA fragments of wild salmon. Rejuran stimulates the skin’s regenerative ability (enhances collagen production, soothes inflammation) to improve the appearance of various acne skin concerns such as scars, large pores and redness. The benefits are cumulative. Using Rejuran alone to stabilize acne and improve scars, it is recommended to start with 3 to 4 monthly sessions, followed by a maintenance treatment every 6 months.

 

Suitable for those who wish to address underlying inflammation while improving the fundamentals of the skin.

 

Price:
Single session from $750. All prices are subject to GST.

 

 

Subcision

Subcision is a service that IYAC offers for depressed acne scars. When the inflammation from acne is prolonged, deep and affects underlying tissue, the skin heals with surface depressions anchored down by fibrous bands. In subcision, a special needle is used to release these fibrous anchors. This treatment is best combined with a collagen-stimulating treatment, such as Rejuran, PROFHILO® or BB Laser, so that the new collagen and elastin can fill up the scars, improving the skin contour.

 

Suitable for those with depressed acne scars.
