Do you hate how your face is never smooth…
Do your friends make fun of your rough face?
Would you like to be able to go out without thick concealer?
You are not alone! Literally, thousands of people like yourself suffer needlessly every day in Singapore. The reason is that they thought that there is no solution for deep pimple scars and depressed acne scars. Well, they could not be more wrong! With modern technology, deep acne scar treatment is a real possibility. Read on and I’ll tell you more about how we have been successfully treating our patients with conditions ranging from MILD TO SEVERE acne and pimple scars* (results may vary from patient to patient).
Are deep pimple scars really treatable?
In the past, there WERE already treatments available to treat acne scars. However, these treatments, including subcision, dermabrasion, and CO2 resurfacing, were highly traumatic, required weeks to months of downtime and had lots of complications. However, that is now in the past. With the latest in present day therapy, treatment for acne scars is now a reality.
As a doctor, I see patients with acne and acne scar patients every day. One theme that I’ve encountered over and over again, is that these patients have LOST a huge amount of CONFIDENCE and are extremely SELF CONSCIOUS. You see, this is the undeniable psychological impact of deep acne scarring. It does not help that many of these patients have also gone from doctor to doctor, beautician to beautician hoping for a cure, and several thousand dollars and much pain later, they have still not found a good solution. Are you one of these people? Do you feel depressed when you look at the mirror every day? If you are, then please read on. I have prepared this page especially for you.
Here are 3 important facts to remember:
Fact No 1. Acne Scars can be treated with the RIGHT technology
Fact No 2. Treatment takes investment of time, money and pain (YES, PAIN! I’ll get to that later)
Fact No 3. Acne Scars are DIFFICULT to treat, but you will see improvements with EVERY SESSION* (results may vary from patient to patient)
What causes Deep Acne Scars?
To be convinced that we can treat scars, it is important to understand why we develop them. Acne scars develop because, during the infected phase of a pimple, lots of tissue is destroyed by the inflammation process. This damaged tissue is healed by the body, which produces scar tissue to replace this damaged tissue. This scar tissue consists of thick ropes of collagen, that STICK the surface of the skin DOWN to the deep tissues below the skin. This is the reason why no matter what kind of superficial pimple scar treatments you do, that doesn’t cause pain or only take off the superficial layer of skin, they will have ALMOST ZERO IMPACT on the acne scars.
This is the harsh reality that I have come to accept after so many years of research and trials into scar treatment: In order to treat DEEP ACNE SCARS, you will need a DEEP SKIN TREATMENT.
That’s why in my clinical practice, I have been using Infini on an almost daily basis to treat pimple scars with GREAT and CONSISTENT RESULTS*(results may vary from person to person). After researching for many years on acne and pimple scar treatments, I finally chanced on Infini, a deep radiofrequency treatment. This treatment is able to treat the skin all the way down to 3.5mm deep. Comparing this to conventional ablative CO2 or Erbium YAG or Erbium Glass lasers which can only penetrate to a safe maximum of 1 mm to 1.5 mm depth, it is obvious which treatment will get you the best result.* (results may vary from person to person)

Don’t get me wrong, in my practice we still use various lasers like the Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser or the Fractional CO2 laser with good results, but this is usually for different conditions, such as pigmented scars, or superficial pitted scars. However, for deep acne scars, the treatment of choice, and my personal gold standard treatment is still the Infini device. After having tested so many different lasers and radiofrequency devices, such as eMatrix, eTwo, Scarlet, Intracel, Sciton Profractional, Fraxel, Pixel, SmartXide2, Finescan etc… I am still utterly convinced that Infini is the best treatment for deep acne scars.*
My name is Dr Gerard Ee MBBS (London), MRCS (Edinburgh), and I obtained my medical degree from St George’s University of London in the United Kingdom. I worked in the Singapore General Hospital (SGH), National University Hospital (NUH), as well as Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. In 2012, I achieved the Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh) in 2012. Today, I work at The Clifford Clinic, and for years, I saw and treated acne, pimple and pimple scar problems every day of the week. Being a sufferer of acne and pimples when I was younger, and into early adulthood, I completely understand the distress and embarrassment that every patient goes through when they suffer from pimples and acne. After working for so many years in treating acne and pimple problems, I have honed and refined my technique and protocols to provide solutions to many of my patients’ conditions. *(Results may vary per individual.)
When I started out using the Infini device, I was not getting the kind of results I was hoping for. It was only after much refinement of my clinical protocol, that I managed to evolve a treatment protocol that gives patients a HIGH SUCCESS RATE in their scar treatment, with low pain and low complications* (results may vary from person to person). Today, I can confidently say that most patients who come to me with deep acne scars will see a visible improvement in their scarring after only ONE treatment.* (Please note, however, that this does not mean that your scars will vanish overnight. Acne and Pimple scars are difficult to treat and may require multiple repeat sessions to get a much better effect. In addition, because of the varied nature of human healing, your results may vary from person to person).
