Skin Illumination Programme – Pigmentation Removal Treatment In Singapore
Combination Of Laser Treatments For Effective Pigmentation Removal in Singapore
Skin pigmentation is a condition that causes the skin to darken significantly compared to the surrounding areas. It can appear in small patches on any part of the body and it can cover large areas.
Skin pigmentation occurs when more melanin is produced in certain areas on the skin. They often result in flat, darkened patches of skin that are light brown to black in colour and they can vary in shapes and sizes.
What Causes Hyperpigmentation?
There are several factors that can cause hyperpigmentation. Some common causes are:
Sun exposure remains the leading cause of hyperpigmentation. Pigments on the skin are triggered by the production of melanin induced by the UV rays from the sun. Although melanin aids in shielding you from the sun, excessive sun exposure can cause melanin to produce dark pigments in some areas. When dark spots have developed, prolonged exposure to the sun may cause these pigments (such as age spots, melanoma, and post-inflammatory pigmentation) to become even darker.
This is more relevant to women as female sex hormones can stimulate the overproduction of melanin when the skin is exposed to the sun. Pigmentation that is developed due to female sex hormones is mainly melasma or chloasma. Melasma affects a lot of pregnant women due to the hormonal fluctuations during pregnancy.
Some medication may also encourage the development of pigmentation. Some hormone treatment drugs, chemotherapy drugs, antibiotics, anti-seizure drugs may lead to the development of pigmentation on the skin.
Certain medical conditions
Hyperpigmenation could also be symptomatic of certain underlying issues such as autoimmune diseases and gastrointestinal diseases, vitamin deficiencies, and metabolic disorders.
This occurs when the skin is injured and has healed but it is left darkened and discoloured after the wound has healed.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pigmentation Removal Treatments In Singapore
Can hyperpigmentation be prevented?
Since the leading cause of hyperpigmentation is sun exposure, protecting your skin from UV exposure would be the most effective way to prevent hyperpigmentation. To prevent sun damage, make sure to use sun protection such as sunscreen every day. This will go a long way in preventing hyperpigmentation.
Can Skin Illumination Programme laser treatment prevent new hyperpigmentation?
This pigmentation treatment does not prevent the occurrence of new hyperpigmentation. However, it helps to treat uneven skin tone and reduce existing stubborn pigmentation on your skin. At the same time, it is important to protect your skin with sun protection products while you are out in the sun.
Is pigmentation removal treatment suitable for darker skin types?
Laser technology today is advanced and is safe and effective for patients with darker skin tones. However, for best results, we recommend dark-skinned patients to have a thorough consultation with their trusted aesthetics doctor for a carefully tailored laser treatment plan suitable for their skin type and skin condition.
Is the pigmentation removal treatment painful?
The treatment process is tolerable. At Radium Medical Aesthetics, patient’s comfort is our priority. We will prepare our patients and apply topical numbing agents on the skin before the treatment. This is to ensure that you will be comfortable through the procedure.
