Whether it’s because of bacteria, unsuitable skincare products, hormonal fluctuations, or a face mask (go away, maskne!), sudden acne outbreaks always prove to be uncomfortable and frustrating.

When mild breakouts like these occur, acne facials are often a great option to turn to. They’re specially designed to clear pores, get rid of acne-causing bacteria, and reduce oil production. For that reason, acne facials also often involve the use of light therapies, microdermabrasion, or chemical peels that are particularly effective in doing so.

Choose the right acne facials to combat troublesome acne and you’ll enjoy clearer, healthier skin. To let you make your best choice, we’ve rounded up nine of our favourite acne facials in Singapore – some even come with discounts up to 52% off!

Caring Skin Acne Clear Nano Perfector Treatment

Caring Skin A+ Hydrogen Treatment Store

Feel the rain on your skin with this refreshing ‘rainfall’ facial treatment by Caring Skin.

Singapore’s first-ever ‘rainfall’ facial, the Acne Clear Nano Perfector Treatment ‘rains’ on the skin by flushing it with ice-cold alkaline water. It makes up two key steps in the facial, helping to stimulate collagen production, improve skin’s elasticity, and thus rejuvenate acne-troubled skin.

Besides the ‘rainfall’, the facial also uses a 20% glycolic acid peel to exfoliate as well as applies natural, plant-based products to ensure optimal absorption of nutrients by the skin. The end result is supple skin that’s calmer, has lighter pigmentation, and has a more even skin tone.

Book this 90-minute facial for S$299.60 on Caring Skin. First-timers enjoy a trial price of S$149.80.

Beauty Recipe Plasma Shower Acne Treatment

Those with sensitive skin will be happy to find a facial treatment that combats acne while being gentle on the skin. Beauty Recipe’s Plasma Shower Acne Treatment is designed for those who have sensitive skin. It uses pressure plasma technology to treat acne scarring in a way that is suitable for easily irritated skin.

Estheticians will use a nozzle to direct plasma-containing energy onto the skin – you’ll likely experience a slight tingle or heating sensation on your face. The heat removes old photodamaged cells at the skin’s surface, and at the same time, promotes collagen production below the skin’s surface.

The two-in-one action both rids your skin of damaged cells and encourages cell regeneration, so your skin is left with a vibrant glow that comes from within!

Address: 277 Orchard Road, Orchard Gateway, #B2-01, Singapore 238858
Opening hours: 11am – 9pm (Mon to Sun)
