Fortunately, I never have to worry about pimples. My mom too, are not bothered by them. So without any personal experience, I'm having a hard time tackling my son's Acne concerns. Jonathan is going 18. Thankfully, his pimples aren't as serious as the pix above, just a few popping out mostly on his forehead, but they keep coming back & he gets frustrated.
Like many mothers, I went hopping from products to products off the shelf, trying in vain to resolve the issue. But when that didn't help, it's time to seek professional advice.
CeleVenus Wellness & Aesthetic Clinic stepped in to introduce their Sciton Broadband Light (BBL) treatment, the newest generation & most advanced of Intense Pulsed Light therapy. Its shorter wavelengths of BBL, in the blue-light spectrum, targets p-acne bacteria (p-acnes bacteria that are partially responsible for acne in the skin) on the surface & in the sebaceous gland.
The process (Anti-Acne Broadband Light Facial):
- Double cleansing & facial scrub.
- Extraction of facial clogs & debris.
- Lymphatic Detoxification Massage.
- Applied Base mask - Tea Tree base mask on T-zone area (where acnes are more active) for antiseptic & anti-inflammation; H20 hydrating base mask on cheek & chin for hydration as Jon's cheeks are dehydrated.
- Applied another layer of lavender mask to enhance anti-inflammation & to soothe the skin.
- Sciton Broadband Light (BBL).
I had a hard time convincing Jon to do the treatment as he said it's too gay. But when I finally succeeded in coaxing him to go to Celevenus for the BBL, he was having fun. It was Jon's first time going to a facial with me. Therapist Peggy was gentle & extremely patient with his nonsense like during extraction & the BBL treatment, which Jon described as "like a rubber band shot" on his face. Lol!
A thin film of gel is applied to your skin, followed by the BBL treatment. Most patients have minimal discomfort. Treatment sessions last 20-30 minutes.
What to expect after treatment:
After treatment is completed, some may experience temporary reddening & minimal swelling of the acne, & surrounding skin for 1-2 days. This is transient & usually associated with minimal to no downtime. Makeup can be applied immediately, if desired.
How many treatments are needed:
To achieve maximum improvement with BBL, a series of 6 bi-weekly treatments is most effective. Patients may need periodic touch up treatments depending on their acne type & severity.
Now, here's a One-time Trial Price for Luxury Haven's Readers:
- Anti-Acne BBL treatment - S$175
