Cure Acnes from Chemical Peels and Medi-facials, to PPX Pore-Cleansing ACNE Treatment

Astique Clinic | 15 Jul 2014

At ASTIQUE, they have acne treatment programmes that are tailored according to each individual’s acne condition. These range from chemical peels and medi-facials, to PPX Pore-Cleansing ACNE Treatment™ (PPX), pore toning laser and fractional laser skin resurfacing. 

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are 3- to 7-day controlled skin peel systems that work by inhibiting tyrosinase, a critical enzyme in the melanin (pigment) production process. Chemical peels are designed to lighten blemishes and resistant pigmentation, as well as reduce acne and acne scars. They also exfoliate gently and unclog pores, brightening your complexion quickly and effectively. Additionally, chemical peels can reduce the intensity of fine wrinkles slightly.

The treatment takes only 30 minutes and patients often report more luminous skin after 1 session. With repeated treatments, stubborn pigmentation lightens visibly and skin appears refined and supple. There is no downtime involved although your skin will appear flushed and feel slightly warm. Most of the redness should dissipate by the 3rd day and you may experience slight flaking of the skin. Within 5 to 7 days, healthy and luminous skin is reborn and your blemishes should begin to fade.


Medi-facials are skin treatments formulated to improve general skin health as well as to address specific skin conditions. At ASTIQUE, the 60-minute Clear and Bright Facial exfoliates, deep cleanses, and hydrates your skin, as well as helps treat the redness and irritation of acne and congested pores.

Astique uses high-quality science-based products to revitalise, heal and refresh your skin, and have chosen the clinically-proven brand, ESTHEMED, which uses only natural, highly-functional and virtually irritation-free ingredients, to leave you looking younger and more luminous.

PPX Pore-Cleansing ACNE Treatment™ (PPX)

PPX is an advanced technology that combines a gentle vacuum with therapeutic broadband light, to help rid skin of acne-causing impurities, leaving your skin cleaner and clearer. PPX eliminates acne and pigmentation, and rejuvenates your skin in a quick, painless and effective manner.

The whole process takes a mere 10 minutes to complete, and there is no downtime. Most patients start to see results immediately and with each session the improvements become more apparent. Generally, patients require a minimum of 5 sessions in order to achieve excellent results.

Pore Toning Laser

The Cooltouch CT3 plus laser is the “gold standard” non-ablative laser for wrinkle and stretch mark reduction as well as acne and acne scar treatment, and is suitable for all who are seeking a non-invasive anti-aging treatment to improve their skin and appearance.

Other than helping to control hyperactive oil glands and acne to give an enviable clear healthy sheen, the Cooltouch laser is also a highly effective preventive tool which curbs the biological mechanisms that lead to loss of skin youthfulness, as the laser treatment rebuilds the collagen and elastic structure of the skin. Pores are reduced in size and skin texture is improved. 3 to 6 treatments are typically required to maximise the benefits of the treatment. The procedure will take about 15 minutes, and there is no downtime.

Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing

Fractional laser skin resurfacing is a process in which the skin’s outermost surface is physically removed by a controlled and extremely precise burn. It targets and effectively improves facial flaws, by removing damaged skin and stimulating the growth of new collagen fibres in the underlying skin, so that when the treated area heals, the new skin that forms is smoother and firmer. Laser resurfacing has been shown to reduce facial wrinkles and skin irregularities, such as blemishes, acne and acne scars, and stretch marks.

As the procedure is ablative, there is a downtime of about one week where there will be redness, warmth and peeling at the treated area; however, recovery and significant improvement can be observed from the 5th to 7th day onwards.
