People of different ethnicity have different skin colour. The different shades of skin colour is contributed by the pigment in our skin called melanin. Melanin is the brown pigment that gives the different shades and colors of the human skin. Without the presence of melanin, our skin would have a deathlike pallor with shades of pink because of the blood flow underneath.
Melanin is usually evenly distributed in the skin, but when they concentrate in certain areas, they form brown spots on the skin which we could form freckles, age spots, or melasma.
When there is an abnormally high amount of melanin, hyperpigmentation occurs. It is usually caused by:
- Use of certain drugs such as birth control pills
- Inflammation of the skin such as Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)
- Regular exposure to the sun without protection
As hyperpigmentation is hardly life threatening, you could, of course, just leave it alone. However, a lot of women can’t wait to get rid of it because it is unsightly. Regular exposure to the sun can develop sun spots. While sun spots are harmless, it is a sign that you’ve had a lot of UV exposure, which leads to premature aging.
“For pigmentation that are benign, you can get them removed by an aesthetic doctor.” he added.
Dr. Siew tells us more about the different types of lasers for effective pigmentation treatment.
Customized Laser Treatments for Pigmentation
When lasers first came into the market for pigmentation removal, they were costly and largely unaffordable. Over the years, technology improved and treatment costs also reduced significantly. After so many years, laser treatments remain one of the most effective and convenient methods to treat pigmentation.
At Radium Medical Aesthetics, Skin Illumination Program was meticulously designed by Dr. Siew to help his patients remove stubborn pigmentation, effectively with minimal downtime and damage to the surrounding skin tissue.
“In ten years of my practice, pigmentation is known to be notoriously challenging to remove,” says Dr. Siew. “Many of my patients have complained about trying all sorts of lightening creams and treatments, but nothing has proven effective. Even though some pigments may lighten or disappear, they can come back after a few months.” he added.
Skin Illumination Program has a long-term efficacious effect in removing stubborn pigmentation issues such as freckles, sun spots, Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH), and melasma. This combination laser therapy is made up of 5 sessions of up to 4 types of pigment-reducing laser treatments such as Dual Yellow Laser, Skin Brightening Laser and Ruvy Touch Pigment Laser.
By combining several effective laser technologies in one single program, even the most stubborn pigmentation can be removed with long-lasting results.
