ALA Acne Clear

ALA Acne CLEAR facial

In Singapore, up to 88% of young adults have moderate to severe acne. If left untreated, acne can lead to temporary or permanent scarring such as hyperpigmentation. Drastically reduce acne breakouts and achieve perfect skin with ALA Acne Clear treatment, our special acne treatment protocol designed to kill acne-causing bacteria.

What is ALA Acne Clear?

ALA Acne Clear is a non-invasive, innovative light-based treatment for patients with moderate to severe acne. This acne treatment utilizes 5-aminolevulinic acid and photodynamic therapy (ALA-PDT) to combat acne breakouts by killing the bacteria that causes acne. 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) is a photosensitizing agent that is applied to skin to react with light therapy (PDT). Outside of aesthetics, ALA PDT is often used to treat superficial forms of skin cancer. 

ALA Acne Clear is recommended for those struggling with acne breakouts. It should be used as part of an acne management plan formulated by a dermatologist. 

Patients with active acne can benefit from ALA Acne Clear as it is suitable for all skin types and is able to deliver visible results with continued treatment sessions.

How does ALA Acne Clear work?

Step 1: ALA is applied to skin. 

Step 2: Light pulses from a special device are delivered to your skin to target your acne outbreaks. When light is delivered on ALA-treated skin, it penetrates the skin follicles where sebaceous (oil) glands that produce excessive sebum are located. Excessive sebum is what typically causes acne breakouts in patients. 

Step 3: Accumulated bacteria in the glands are destroyed as a result of a chemical reaction.

Step 4: After treatment, sebum excretion is greatly reduced which leads to clearer skin and less acne outbreaks.

At OZ Aesthetics, the ALA PDT acne treatment we do is a lot milder than the usual protocol used on skin cancer patients. Hence, there is no skin peeling and crusting after treatment and the risks of complications like postinflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) is very low.

What results can I expect from ALA Acne Clear?

With ALA Acne Clear, clients can expect reduced inflammation, lessened acne and overall skin improvement. This is due to the shrinking of the oil glands which contributes to bacteria growth in the skin. 

Our clients who undergo ALA Acne Clear often find that their cysts and pimples appear less often than before the start of treatment.

It will take several weeks for skin to become clear and this process can be accelerated with a dermatologist-approved skincare regime.

How many treatments of ALA Acne Clear do I need?

The number of treatments will depend on the severity of your skin condition. However, it is recommended that clients go for treatment sessions twice a week to be able to see a decrease in skin inflammation and acne. This treatment process can be repeated for up to 4 to 6 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is ALA Acne Clear painful?

ALA Acne Clear is a generally painless procedure. There will not be any discomfort during treatment. At most, you might experience some warmness on the treatment areas. 

Is ALA Acne Clear safe?

ALA Acne Clear is considered to be a safe treatment for patients of all skin types. It is a non-invasive method for clearing acne breakouts and reducing inflammation. There is no risk of skin crusting and peeling after treatment and there is also a very low risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH); we have formulated it to be mild and effective on the skin. 

Prior to the procedure, please inform us about any underlying conditions you may have such as sensitivity to light (i.e. you are easily sunburnt) naturally, on medication, or if you are pregnant.

You should avoid tanning beds, use sunscreen and avoid prolonged sun exposure before your treatment. This will help protect your skin before your appointment and minimize the risk of any side effects. 

After treatment, refrain from applying scrubs or exfoliators to your skin until you can return to your normal skincare regime.

Is there any downtime?

ALA Acne Clear treatment does not have any downtime. This means you will be able to resume normal activities right after the treatment. You may experience slight redness on the skin which will resolve shortly after. 

We recommend clients do not apply heavy makeup for up to 5-7 days after treatment.
