Ensoul Signature Acne MediFacial 

The Ensoul Signature Acne Medi-Facial (90mins) is an eight-step acne treatment. This treatment uses high-quality medical-grade products and devices to effectively clear current acne and prevent future breakouts. This treatment deep cleanses the face, kills acne bacteria, and exfoliates the skin to shed dead skin cells more effectively. Along with removing acne, this medi-facial also helps reduce inflammation and improve your skin's texture and tone. 

As this treatment is customised and tailored to the individual, it is suitable for all skin types. Another benefit of this treatment is that it can help brighten dull skin and give a healthy glow to the skin. 

Before embarking upon on your acne treatment, our doctor will first assess the patient's skin condition and prescribe a customised treatment combination appropriate for the individual's skin needs. 

The Process 

1. Deep Cleansing 

Firstly, our therapist cleanses the patients' faces using DR. KT's Oil-Free Cleanser to remove all traces of makeup, oil, and sweat accumulated on the skin throughout the day. Proper and thorough cleansing is crucial as it prevents surface breakouts and also helps to brighten any dullness, ultimately enhancing skin complexion.

2. Skin Peel Repair 

After cleansing the skin, a medical-grade chemical peel is applied to exfoliate and remove excess sebum and debris. This stage of the therapy aids in clearing active acne lesions and prevents the formation of future acne lesions. The dermabrasion also helps in reducing wrinkles and discolourations of the skin.

3. Medical Comedone Extraction 

Medical comedone extractions are an important part of the acne treatment process. They are an excellent way to clean out comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) and help in acne's speedier clearing. When applied in combination with a chemical peel, medical extractions prove even more effective in treating acne. The therapist will extract the clogged pores, comedones, and inflammatory acne lesions on the skin during the medical extraction process. This process works even better when performed immediately after a chemical peel. Chemical peeling effectively removes excess sebum and debris from the skin's follicles, neutralising active acne lesions and preventing future acne outbreaks.

4. Intense Pulse Light (IPL) – Hair Removal

Acne breakouts occur when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. This creates an environment in which bacteria can thrive, resulting in inflammation, redness, and breakouts of the skin. With IPL Hair Removal, you can target the bacteria that cause acne by producing heat that damages their cell walls, eventually leading to the destruction of those bacteria. This helps to reduce the number of bacteria present on the skin, which can prevent future breakouts.

5. Intense Pulse Light (IPL) - Dual Light Acne Treatment

The medical-grade IPL uses SMARTPULSE™ technology to ensure precise and consistent energy delivery through advanced pulse optimization. This next step of IPL dual light acne treatment uses blue and red light to target the bacteria that causes acne, also known as Propionibacteria (P.acnes). When blue light is absorbed by P. acnes, it creates a chemical reaction that damages the bacteria, ultimately leading to their destruction. This helps to reduce the number of bacteria present on the skin, which prevents future breakouts. While the red light helps to reduce the inflammation in the skin - a key component of acne that contributes to redness, swelling, and discomfort. The light energy from the red light stimulates the production of collagen, which can help to reduce inflammation and improve the overall texture of the skin. This can help to reduce the appearance of superficial acne scars and prevent new breakouts from forming.

6. Ultrasound Therapy 

This acne treatment therapy uses ultrasound technology to stimulate blood circulation, activate fibroblasts, reduce inflammation, aids cell repair and skin regeneration. It also helps strengthen skin immunity and reduce bad enzymes (known as Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs) concentrations) that manifest themselves in acne.  

7. Hydro Cooling Anti-Inflammatory Mask 

The Hydro Cooling Anti-Aging Mask has several peeling edges, which are very effective at exfoliating the skin. The mask contains several of active ingredients that contains antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties which helps to inhibit the growth of bacteria on the skin. Its anti-inflammatory and healing properties also helps to calm the skin and stimulate wound healing. Another benefit of this mask, is that it also contains natural forms of vitamin E, and antioxidant which helps your skin fight oxidative stress caused by everyday exposure to pollutants and other toxins. 

So apart from removing dead cells form the outermost layer of the skin which in turn help exfoliation and cleaning out impurities, this final step helps to rejuvenate your complexion and help prevent bacterial infections and slows down acne recurrence.  


IPL Hair Removal Benefit

Individuals with thick, dark hair, usually suffer ingrown hairs that spread bacteria trapped in the pores, creating acne flare-ups. The bacteria responsible for oily skin travel from the skin's pores through facial hair to adjacent pores. Face laser hair removal will reduce breakouts significantly since no hair will be left to hold onto, allowing bacteria to thrive. The sebaceous glands are also likely to produce less oil after a treatment. And with less oil, there's less acne.

Acne forms when dead skin cells aren't shed properly. Unblocking these glands will substantially reduce the further development of acne as sebum, oils, and bacteria will no longer be trapped within them. The scars that usually accompany current acne outbreaks will also get reduced.

Skin Rejuvenation with IPL

The additional benefit of IPL is that it instantly rejuvenates the skin apart from lightening the dark spots caused by hyperpigmentation. Technology utilising IPL can stimulate collagen synthesis under the skin's surface and reduce the size of pores. You can literally witness fine lines and wrinkles disappear, leaving you with a smoother, more even skin tone and complexion. With new generation IPL technology, you can heal damaged skin, restoring your natural complexion with an added radiance.

Anti-Aging Properties

Ensoul Hydro Cooling Anti-Inflammatory Mask is also a suitable treatment for anti-aging, as it is rich in vitamins E, C, and A (retinol). While stimulating the cell's renewal, they improve the tissues' tonicity. Vitamin A has an especially skin-tightening effect while increasing the collagen fiber's rejuvenation rate. Associated with vitamin E and its strong antioxidant action, vitamin A helps to firm up the skin. The menthol cryo-complex content in the mask has a calming and refreshing action.  

When applied to the face, it resembles a second skin that takes on the exact contours of treated areas. A skin tightening effect is felt during the treatment. The mask contains algae that help cool and refresh the skin. Furthermore, it also tightens pores, improves blood circulation, increases oxygen supply, and speeds up the reabsorption of stagnant spots from acne and pimples. Its draining effect (improves blood flow and lymph flow) improves the complexion and serves as a good barrier against premature ageing. 

The advantages of the mask are that it is useful and effective for normal, combination, dry, and oily skin types. Among its distinct advantages is its ability to prevent wrinkles from appearing by promoting smooth skin and maintaining skin tone. Suitable for individuals with aged skin as well.
