Choosing the best pigmentation removal treatment can be challenging. The market is filled with options. The first step to treating pigmentation is to understand what hyperpigmentation is.

Melanin is produced by melanocytes and is the pigment that gives the complexion its colour. Hyperpigmentation occurs when melanin is excess in the skin. When our skin is exposed to the sun's rays, melanocytes are naturally stimulated to produce more melanin to protect the skin from sunburn. Hyperpigmentation occurs when melanin production is not uniform, leading to skin patches that appear darker than the surrounding skin. While pigmentation is a common skin condition that affects all skin types, it is usually harmless.

The condition usually develops in sun-exposed areas such as the face, neck, décolleté, hands, arms, and legs. 

How hyperpigmentation is formed

Another type of hyperpigmentation, known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), occurs after an inflammation of the skin, such as cuts, burns, chickenpox, or acne. This type of skin inflammation can occur almost in any part of the body. As skin ages, fewer melanocytes are produced, but those that remain increase in size and become more defined. Melanosome regulation also becomes less controlled. These physiological changes explain why age spots appear more prominent among those over 40.

In order to achieve the desired effect, the old technique was to increase the treatment intensity. Single-dimensional method uses only one treatment modality, and increasing its power to achieve the desired results creates more pain, post-treatment discomfort and longer downtime. There is an increased risk of unpredictable and damaging results. This can make the whole experience unpleasant for patients. 

"The old way was to use just one modality to treat the skin problem."

Our doctors have devoted years of aesthetic experience to finding effective solutions for skin pigmentation removal. As a result of years of experience, our doctor developed laser combinations that combine picosecond (Pico laser), Nd Yag lasers, Alexandrite pico lasers, long pulsed Nd Yag, Erbium Yag and yellow lasers for treating dark spots. As different laser treatment modalities use different wavelengths of high-energy light, they can target different depths of the skin and treat different skin problems.

Using a combination of lasers, we can augment the stimulation of collagen and elastin production and the regeneration of new skin cells, yielding better results. This method is more demanding and therefore requires an experienced doctor.

Our objective is to help patients achieve an overall healthier skin. Together with lightening of pigmentation, fairer skin, smaller pores and smoother skin. Our patients also find they get intense toning, lifting, skin tightening, and pronounced skin renewal, resulting in a natural glow and lightening effect.

The series of ablative and non-ablative lasers treat both the epidermis and dermis of the facial skin. Laser skin resurfacing targets the epidermis layer of the skin, rejuvenating it and creating new, healthier cells, resulting in a more even skin tone and texture. Through non-ablative lasers, collagen and elastin production is stimulated to improve skin elasticity and repair damaged skin.

Can Pigmentation recur after removal

Pigmentations can sometimes recur even after successful treatments. The recurrence is due to the constant exposure to the sun as well as our hormones. We can prevent pigmentation from recurring by applying sunscreen with at least SPF 50 diligently and adopting sun protection measures to have long-term sustainable results. Treatments can only clear your pigmentations, ultimately, a proper skincare routine is equally essential in preventing pigmentation recurrence.

How many sessions do you need?

Every individual is different, even for their treatments. Usually you would be able to see some results after one session, but you may need a few sessions to completely clear the pigmentation as it is also dependent on the severity of the pigmentation.

Is there downtime in this treatment?

It is a gentle treatment and almost no downtime from this treatment. The possibilities of redness could be seen and the redness should subside in few hours.

Can all areas of the body be treated?

Any area of the body can be treated safely and effectively. Our most common treatment areas include face, neck, chest, arms and hands.

What are the treatment options for hyperpigmentation?

A detailed assessment is critical in order to determine the course of treatment for our patients. After identifying the types of pigmentations, doctors will recommend a range of treatments ranging from topical to lasers to energy-based devices according to your skin types and conditions that is suitable for our patients.
