We understand how you feel about acne scars.The reason why you are on this page is likely because either you or your loved ones are seeking acne scar treatment with a doctor that you can connect with and trust.

Our scar removal clinic is helmed by lady doctors Dr Grace Ling and Dr Lim Luping who have a combined experience of more than 40 years in family practice and aesthetics. Our doctors have the heart of family physicians, are down to earth and caring and believe in delivering affordable,  practical and effective solutions to remove your acne scars.  We focus on targeted treatment of acne scars – both old and new scars.

Over the years, our doctors have derived tremendous satisfaction from helping patients transform their “acne-scarred” skin as it not only transforms their outward appearance but also goes such a long way to improving self esteem and confidence resulting in an improved social and work life.

Dr Lim Luping herself was a sufferer of teenage acne too which resulted in scarring too as a result of lack of access to treatment resources during her youth. Now with advanced acne treatment technology and protocols, her acne scars have improved significantly.

Benefits of our Scar Reduction Program :

  • Remove and reduce acne scars
  • Restore smooth and clear skin
  • Refine pores and make them look less visible

To start your own scar removal journey with us, do not hestitate to whatsapp us at 87263383 to book an appointment with our lady doctors, Dr Grace Ling or Dr Lim Luping.

Can stubborn acne scars be treated?

Do not fret – most definitely YES!

Removing Acne Scars is our passion and forte. We understand how you feel. We empathize and we care. Your journey with us at our Acne Scar Removal Clinic will first start with the all important and detailed consultation with our lady doctors, Dr Grace Ling or Dr Lim Luping.

In our detailed 30 min doctor consultation , we will :

  1. Analyse the severity of your acne scars – we will take note of the extent of the acne scars and also the depth of the scars
  2. Take note of your special medical history including drug allergies or previous surgeries etc
  3. Take note of whether you have active acne at the same time (some patients still have active acne which has to be treated concurrently whereas some patients’ acne condition has stabilised and no longer have active acne) – the treatment approach may  be slightly different in each case
  4. We will also take special note of previous medications/ skincare / treatments that you may have done before. This will help us to customise your acne scar treatment program better
  5. You are also free to raise any unique concerns that you have about your skin, scars or treatment plan
  6. During the consultation our doctors will share with you realistic expectations that can be achieved through the treatment protocols.
  7. Finally, a customised Scar Treatment Plan will be designed for you to suit your concerns, needs, budget and schedule.

Most of our patients start with our foundation treatment protocol which is the proven (USA FDA-approved, Europe CE-approved and Singapore HSA-approved), affordable and pain-free [Scar Reduction System] which is a multi-step integrative protocol comprising combination of the jewels of Israeli and Korean aesthetic technology. 

[Scar Reduction System] $599 : 4 step protocol 
Israel Nano-fractional RF + Korean PDRN [Dna extracts for healing, scar remodelling] + Transdermal HA ( for healing) + Scar Improvement 2-in-1 Laser 

Scar removal treatments are personally performed by our Dr Grace Ling or Dr Lim Luping.

The duration between each session is 4 weeks. We strongly advise patients to complement the treatment protocol with our holistic approach : a proper suncare regime (oral / topical) and home use skincare regime for scar repair and healing.

For those patients who have higher expectations or requirement for acne scar treatment (whether for personal, social or career reasons) or who may have had treatments done previously before, our doctors will discuss in detail how to help you further to achieve your goals of a blemish-free skin.

  1. For patients who prefer no downtime, then subcision with our latest addition from Korean – REJURAN Aquabooster Acne Scar Healer System  $799 is the treatment of choice. Rejuran Skin Healer is a natural scar healer and filler treatment that delivers DNA extracts (polyneucleotides) to the skin for skin healing and repair. It is enhanced with hyaluronic acid to stimulate healing and collagen stimulation. In addition to healing acne scars, it gives the skin a natural and long lasting glow and natural lift!

  2. For patients who prefer just subcision alone without any filler the price is $250/session upwards.  More sophisticated scar treatment will include combination therapies to complement the Viva Venus Nano-fractional RF treatments. Further discussion and advice from our doctor will be required for patients who have higher expectation to achieve your goals of a blemish-free skin.
  3. Patients who have concurrent active acne may require Acne Laser treatments. Combi 2-in-1 Acne Laser and Scar Improvement Laser Program (Acne Toning Laser + Neocollagen Laser)
  4. Acne scar treatment frequently requires a holistic treatment to achieve optimal results. Many of our patients have high expectations and hence opt to do advanced treatments programs like the [360 Acne Scar Treatment Program] which comprises a synergistic approach.

Each and every patient is important to us at our Acne Scar Removal Clinic. Each patient is personally consulted by our doctor and not by a therapist or non-medical consultant. Each individual’s  scar and skin condition is different and unique. But the scar transformation journey takes time. Avail your time to allow us to understand you and your skin so that an optimal program can be customised for you. Take the first step with us in your journey towards a scar and blemish free skin today 🙂

How long will it take for me to see results?

We know most patients are very anxious for quick results but acne scar treatment takes time as we need to work with the science and natural cycle of the skin. Skin collagen stimulation starts about 28 days after each treatment session so realistically. We are most pleased to let you know that results can be seen as early as 6 to 8 weeks after the 1st session for patients on our unique Signature Acne Scar Treatment Program! Each subsequent session will build on the previous session so as the program progresses, the cumulative effects of the scar repair and collagen stimulation will become progressively more obvious! Results can vary between between individual patients depending on each patient’s scar severity, age, compliance with homecare, lifestyle etc.[

At our Acne Scar Removal Clinic, the foundational acne scar treatment program is usually completed by our patients in about 5 months duration, done 4 weeks apart. Each session is performed by our experienced doctor and only requires about 30-45 min in our clinic. Each [Scar Reduction System] $599 session consists of 4 steps :

  1. Israeli Nano-fractional RF procedure – settings will be specially customised by our lady doctor to suit your skin condition and severity of your acne scars
  2. Transdermal penetration of PDRN – which consists of DNA extracts to promote scar repair and skin remodelling at the DNA level
  3. Transdermal penetration of HA – which promotes wound healing and repair of scars
  4. Scar Improvement 2-in-1 Laser 

These doctor designed multi-step protocol work synergistically together to break existing acne scars, rebuild collagen and rejuvenate the skin resulting in reduction in scar size and depth of scar. Collagen remodelling will start around 28 days after each session.

In just 28 days after the 1st session of nano-fractional RF, research has shown that there is increased collagen and elastin in the skin treated*. After 12 weeks, research shows that there is a significicant increase in collagen and elastin in the skin treated*.

To further enhance the results, we strongly advise patients to complement the treatment protocol with our holistic approach : a proper suncare regime (oral / topical) and home use skincare regime for scar repair and healing.

After about 6 months, you will notice that your skin is at a totally new level and you will feel a new confidence as you stride out in your “new skin”! Scar size and scar depth will be reduced. An additional benefit that many of our patients noticed is also the reduction of pore size.

*Results can vary between between individual patients depending on each patient’s scar severity, age, compliance with homecare, lifestyle etc.

Treat different types of Acne Scars with a Shorter Downtime

Acne scars are a result of blemishes left behind when acne subside. These blemishes stay on the skin and may fade with time, but leave marks that cannot be healed. However, they can be treated successfully with Mint Medical Aesthetics Acne Scar Reduction Program.

Our friendly and experienced lady doctors personalise the program to fit each client’s needs and skin. Our patient-centred and individualised approach ensures that our pimple scar treatment will bring out the best in one’s skin.

Common acne scars noted are
1)      Ice-pick scars – deep, small pits
2)      Rolling scars – broad with sloping edges
3)      Box scars – deep with straight edges
4)      Atrophic scars – depression of the skin

Depending on the severity of the acne scars, our trained doctors may advise you to combine the Nano-fractional RF with other modes of treatment for even better and improved results. Here at Mint Medical Aesthetics, we combine treatments that complement one another in order to shorten the time and improve the effectiveness of the program for your skin.

For example, Subcision is combined with Venus Viva Nanofractional RF if there are deep rolling scars or atrophic scars. Subcision is a treatment that releases the fibrous bands which tether the skin and are the cause behind the facial depression. This releases the scar bands and lifts the depressed area. Subcision also stimulates collagen formation improving scaring and skin firming.

Another option is to inject fillers into depressed scars or atrophic areas. This lifts the acne scars and fills the hollows instantly, resulting in acne scar removal.

Aquashine Skin Boosters can also effectively improve acne scars and give a glow to the skin.

Our clients have also benefited from laser toning treatment, which aids collagen stimulation, minimizes pores, reduces the post-acne hyperpigmentation and controls acne.

Regardless of your skin needs or your schedule, our dedicated team of doctors and assistants at Mint Medical Aesthetics will provide you with the perfect acne scar removal treatment program to fit into your daily life in Singapore. We listen to all our client’s preferences and needs and recommend the most appropriate and optimal treatments that can let them achieve the skin they want, in the way they want. Whatsapp us now at 8726 3383 to find out more.

What is Nano-fractional RF and how can it treat acne scars?

One of the technology that Dr Grace Ling and Dr Lim Luping use is the nano-fractional RF Venus Viva, an Israeli technology especially suitable for treatment of depressed acne scars. It is non-invasive and requires minimal downtime. Previous acne scar treatment procedures frequently required a fairly long downtime of 7-10 days. Nano-fractional RF technology is an improved version of previous fractional RF technology for acne scars. Nano-fractional RF is able to deliver good results at much lesser downtime or even almost no downtime using our doctor designed protocol to aid skin healing and collagen stimulation. Results can be seen even after 1 treatment for some individuals but progressive treatment will yield more optimal and sustained results.

Venus Viva™ is a pain-free, fully customizable FDA-approved solution (it is also Europe CE-approved and Singapore HSA-approved) for acne scar remodeling and resurfacing. Delivering impressive results through combining NanoFractional Radio Frequency™ (RF) and one-of-a-kind SmartScan™ technology, Venus Viva is the foremost system that allows you to manually control ablation and coagulation for enhanced treatment efficiency.

  • NanoFractional RF + (MP)2+ SmartScan Technology

Did you know that acne scars can now be treated using Venus Viva™, a USA FDA-approved Nano-fractional RF™? This integrated skincare rejuvenation machine can diminish & improve the appearance of acne scars significantly. It is non-invasive and requires minimal downtime. Results can be seen even after 1 treatment for some individuals. Results can vary between between individual patients depending on each patient’s scar severity, age, compliance with homecare, lifestyle etc.

Venus Viva™ is a pain-free, fully customizable FDA cleared solution for facial remodeling and resurfacing. Delivering impressive results through combining NanoFractional Radio Frequency™ (RF) and an outstanding SmartScan™ technology, Venus Viva is the foremost system that allows you to manually control ablation and coagulation for enhanced treatment efficiency.

  • NanoFractional RF + (MP)2+ SmartScan Technology
  • Superior depth of penetration
  • Fully customizable: Complete control of the ablation and coagulation capacity
  • Consistent and predictable clinical outcomes
  • Immediate and long term results
  • Safe for all skin types

Here’s how it works:

Venus Viva™ works using tiny pins that safely deliver heat (via NanoFractional RF™) through the skin’s surface. This in turn creates tiny micro-dermal wounds on the skin, which the body then works to heal naturally. This method taps on your body’s innate healing capabilities and allows your skin to naturally repair signs of skin damage seen on the skin’s surface, including acne scars.

Because the wounds caused by these tiny pins are so small, the treatment is much more comfortable than conventional lasers or chemical peels. The result is smoother, healthier skin with minimal downtime. If you or someone you know is struggling with issues related to acne scars, you can look into this safe and effective service provided by us at Mint Medical Aesthetics.

How does Transdermal PDRN heal scars?

PDRN, which are DNA extracts for scar healing and regeneration, can be transdermally penetrated into your skin during our doctor designed skin treatment protocol which can heal your acne scars by acting as a scar healer.  We are able to enhance the penetration up to 10 times using medical technology from Israel, stimulating and accelerating cell repair, and regeneration of new cells from deep within the skin. This medical procedure strengthens and thickens the skin structure, improving the appearance and reducing the depth of acne scars. The DNA introduced repairs to the skin from deep within. Additionally, it also reverses the process of aging and restores youthfulness to your facial appearance and complexion. 

The evident benefits that will be delivered to your skin are:

-healthy, supple, smooth skin-enhanced elasticity, reduced fine lines and wrinkles

-firmness and lift

-refined facial pores

-visibly fairer complexion

-recovery of skin balance- hydrated and moisturised skin texture with improved oil control

How does Scar Improvement Laser work to remove Acne Scars?

  • A more superfical laser laser to improve the surface appearance of the skin reducing the blemishes, lightening the dark marks and increasing the skin surface smoothness and glow
