Hyper-pigmentation - a general term for excessive pigmentation. There exist many forms hyper-pigmentation, and these include malesma, freckles, sun and ageing spots, and more. These are typically brought on by UV exposure, genetics and hormonal imbalances. Reversing pigmentation is possible, and with the use state-of-the-art equipment and experienced hands, pigment removal has never been more efficient.

Uneven and excessive pigmentation and/or brown spots (age spots or liver spots) give the skin a dull and aged appearance. Pigmentary problems may result from a combination of earlier sun damage, hereditary conditions and exacerbated by internal hormonal irregularities.

Pigmentation results from melanin deposits and pigment producing cells (melanocytes), at various different depths under the skin surface. A variety of conditions cause abnormal pigmentation, including:

  • Freckles

  • Solar Lentigines / Keratoses

  • Melasma

  • Hori’s nevus / Nevus of Ota

  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

  • Birthmarks and moles

  • Skin cancer

In addition, these different types of pigmentary disorders may sometimes coexist. Accurate diagnosis by an experienced clinician is critical to achieving successful treatment.


Skin Pigmentation Treatments

Skin Brightening

The newest in laser technology - the picosecond laser - puts us at the frontier of pigmentation. With 4 wavelengths of light, skin rejuvenation has never been better. Due to its rapid delivery of energy, treatments are safer and results more rapid than with the use of older generation lasers.

With little downtime or discomfort, witness as your skin is transformed over a period of several weeks to months - pigmentation and general skin tone lightens and redness is calmed.

Treatments are done every 2 to 4 weeks for the initial intensive period, with maintenance sessions every 4-8 weeks thereafter.

Chemical Peels

Used in multiple strengths, chemical peels have long been used to promote skin renewal and to strip away excess dead skin.

Chemical peels consist of mild acids which promote exfoliation and stimulate dermal collagen growth. This prompts a short downtime of 2 to 3 days of mild skin flaking and redness.

Initial 3-5 sessions are done at 2 weekly intervals, and subsequent sessions every 4-8 weeks for maintenance.


Broadband Light Thearpy

BBL, a newer form of intense-pulsed light therapy, has remained a workhorse in rejuvenation and pigment and small vessel removal. 

One session performed every 2-4 weeks ensures bright and healthy looking skin.
