BB AquaTouch Laser
BB AquaTouch is a signature treatment that utilizes the 1927nm Thulium laser. This represents a new wavelength which is more effective at targeting the superficial skin layers for faster clearance of pigmented lesions – photo damaged skin, melasma, and aged spots.
This unique subablative laser is also found to be effective in improving skin elasticity, reducing enlarged pores and fine wrinkles. As its key strength is its renewal of the superficial layers of the skin, it gives your complexion an instant “photoshop” makeover effect. Skin looks more refined, smoother and brighter after a few sessions.
1. Skin tone looks darker due to melanin pigment
2. Fractional laser irradiation.
3. Preservation ofthe stratum corneum + ablation of lower epidermis + coagulation effect on the upper part of dermis.
4. Micro crusts form at the surface of skin as a layer of protection – this preserves any infection and PIH while the skin regenerates optimally under.
How many treatments do I need?
This largely depends on the type of results you desire. Most patients begin to see results from the first two sessions. For longevity of results, we recommend our patients complete a series of 6 sessions.
Is this treatment suitable for sensitive skin?
Patients with sensitive skin can receive this treatment with low risks of side effects. This is because this is a superficial ablative laser, which the doctors at SW1 Clinic can easily fine tune, to tailor the treatment to our patients’ skin type. However we advise all patients to avoid the sun & harsh skincare products such as chemical peels before and after the treatment for faster recovery of the skin.
Will BB AquaTouch Laser be effective for fine wrinkles and enlarged pores?
BB AquaTouch Laser’s unique wavelength allows it to be an effective treatment for pigment as well as fine wrinkles and enlarged pores.

Treatment is well tolerated. A topical aesthetic cream is applied prior to treatment to minimise any discomfort.

For an enviably smoother, refined and brighter complexion, you can consider our Baby Skin Program which features this novel technology alongside LED Red therapy to stimulate collagen synthesis and reduce oil production as well as a Pearl Eclat facial add-on to radically boost skin health.
Is there any special precautions to take after treatment?
It is advisable to apply a moisturising cream and a sunblock after the treatment. You may apply light make-up after the treatment.
