Ethosome Gold PTT Treatment in Singapore
(Anti Acne, Brightening, Anti Wrinkle)

3rd Generation Ethosome Gold PTT Treatment in Singapore

What is Ethosome Gold PTT Treatment?

Our proprietary 3rd generation Ethosome Gold PTT treatment greatly enhances the effectiveness of our laser treatments, delivering better outcomes for various skin types and concerns such as acne, ageing and dull skinAt SL Aesthetic Clinic, our doctors are constantly on the lookout for new and proven treatments that benefit our customers, and Ethosome Gold PTT is one such treatment that we are proud to offer.

By targeting the root causes, 3rd Generation Ethosome Gold PTT helps users achieve clearer, more youthful, and radiant-looking skin. This is a skin treatment that hinges on ethosomes, photothermal therapy (PTT) and gold nanoparticles. 


  • Ethosomes are prized for their ability to permeate through the skin barrier and facilitate delivery of potent ingredients into the skin 
  • Photothermal therapy is a process that converts light into heat – this process is especially beneficial for treating conditions like acne 
  • Gold nanoparticles, on skin, have been proven to produce anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and healing effects

This trio, collectively known as Ethosome Gold PTT, is a technology used to treat common skin problems such as acne, ageing and dull skin

Why Deliver Skincare Ingredients Through Ethosomes?

Ethosomes are tiny particles used to deliver active ingredients to the body through the skin. Due to their soft and malleable nature, ethosomes can penetrate the skin more deeply than other types of delivery systems – for this reason, ethosomes are often preferred by clinicians for transdermal delivery.

Ethosome drug delivery technology offers several advantages over traditional skincare methods.

  • More efficient and targeted way of delivering active ingredients deep into the skin

Ethosome particles are small enough to penetrate the skin’s outermost layer, allowing them to deliver the active ingredients deeper into the skin where they can be more effective.

  • Preserve the integrity of active ingredients 

During delivery, there is little to none degradation and breakdown of active ingredients in the skin. This means that more of the active ingredients can be absorbed and used by the skin, leading to better results.

  • Deliver a wider range of ingredients 

Ethosome drug delivery technology can be used to deliver a wider range of active ingredients, including those that are not typically soluble in water. This means that more potent and effective ingredients can be used in the formulations.

The Ethosome Gold PTT Difference 

  • Anti-ageing by stimulating collagen production
  • Anti-inflammatory by soothing irritated skin and reducing redness
  • Skin brightening by reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation and age spots
  • Increased skin elasticity by promoting the production of elastin, which gives skin its firmness and elasticity
  • Improved skin barrier function to lock in moisture and protect skin from external irritants

What are the Types of Gold PTT Treatment? 

At SL Aesthetic Clinic, we offer 3 types of 3rd Generation Ethosome Gold PTT treatments in Singapore, targeted at different skin concerns, namely:

1. Brightening 

  • To revive dull skin and tackle pigmentation issues
  • Other than gold nanoparticles, this serum also includes anti-pigmentary and skin-brightening active ingredients, including 
  • Ethyl Ascorbyl Ether (antioxidant); tranexamic acid (amino acid for hyperpigmentation); niacinamide (a type of Vitamin B3 for fine lines and wrinkles); glutathione (antioxidant)

2. Anti-Acne

  • For active acne
  • Contains anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial ingredients to reduce redness and inflammation associated with acne, including;
  • Salicylic acid (a beta-hydroxy acid that unclogs pores and reduces acne breakouts); levulinic acid (a natural alpha-hydroxy acid that reduces the growth of acne-causing bacteria on the skin); ascorbic acid (a type of vitamin C); niacinamide (a form of Vitamin B3 that helps to regulate sebum production) 

3. Anti-Wrinkle

  • Targeted at ageing skin
  • Improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Other than gold nanoparticles, this serum also includes many antioxidant and anti-inflammatory ingredients including keratin (a natural protein for hydration); genistein (for skin elasticity); fisetin (collagen production); puerarin (skin hydration)

The 3rd Generation Ethosome Gold PTT serum is activated by laser treatments. Depending on the treatment, either the Fotona long pulse laser or pico laser will be deployed. 

Lasers in itself also have many skin benefits, such as:

  • Stimulating collagen production
  • Targeting bacteria that causes acne to reduce inflammation
  • Reducing pigmentation and appearance of scars, as well as skin resurfacing for smoother and brighter skin.

It is a common misconception that Ethosome Gold PTT is done as an add-on to laser treatment. However, Ethosome Gold PTT is a treatment by itself. In fact, the serum and laser have synergistic effects to provide skin benefits.

How Often Should I Undergo Treatment?

The 3rd Generation Ethosome Gold PTT treatment is recommended for a course of 5-10 treatments between 2-4 weeks apart, depending on individual skin conditions.



Gold PTT (photothermal therapy) is a skincare treatment that involves the use of gold nanoparticles to provide a range of benefits to the skin.

Ethosome drug delivery technology enables efficient and targetted delivery of potent skincare ingredients into the deep skin layers efficiently. Gold nano particles which are incorporated in the cocktail have several benefits, including anti-ageing, anti-inflammatory, skin brightening and improved skin elasticity and skin barrier function. Three types of Gold PTT treatments are available at SL Aesthetic Clinic, tailored for different skin concerns.

Price ranges from $250 to $500 per treatment.

There is no pain. Gold PTT treatment involves the application of a layer of the Gold PTT serum on the skin, followed by activation with Pico or long pulse lasers, which are very gentle lasers with minimal discomfort.

Ethosome Gold PTT treatment is suitable for all age groups, including adolescents who may have acne issues from overactive sebaceous glands.

Ethosome Gold PTT treatment is suitable for all skin types and the three types of Ethosome Gold PTT treatment tackle different skin concerns, as an add on therapy to their respective laser treatments.

The duration of the treatment is the same as that of the laser treatments, as there is only an additional step of application of the Ethosome Gold PTT serum on the face before the laser treatment. 

Our 3rd Generation Ethosome Gold PTT treatment is a safe procedure with minimal downtime and side effects.
