Skin Pigmentation Removal Singapore

Melanin is the pigment in our skin that gives it colour and protects us from UV radiation. Other common factors that can cause pigmentation includes:

–  Hormonal changes,

–  Pregnancy,

–  Genetics and

–  Skin trauma and inflammation caused by acne/ damage to the skin.

    2. Pigmentation Lightening Laser

    The Pigmentation lightening laser system is designed to address a variety of skin concerns, including pigmentation issues.

    It utilises its technology to target and treat pigmented lesions effectively. This non-invasive laser treatment has gained popularity for its precision and ability to provide remarkable results with minimal discomfort and downtime.


    How does it treat pigmentation?

    It employs a unique two-step process to target pigmented lesions. In the first step, the laser emits a specific wavelength of light that is selectively absorbed by the pigmented cells.

    This energy heats and shatters the pigments, breaking them down into smaller particles. In the second step, the body’s natural healing processes work to eliminate these fragmented pigments, resulting in a clearer and more even complexion over time.


    Benefits & Advantages

    There are several benefits for treating pigmentation concerns.

    One of its key advantages is its versatility in addressing various types of pigmented lesions, including sunspots, melasma, freckles, and age spots. Its targeted approach ensures that only the pigmented cells are affected, leaving surrounding healthy skin untouched.

    Additionally, our Pigmentation Lightening Laser is known for its ability to provide consistent and gradual results. This is particularly beneficial for individuals seeking a natural-looking improvement in their skin’s appearance.

    The treatment is gentle and well-tolerated by most patients, with minimal discomfort during the procedure. Moreover, the laser’s customisable settings allow practitioners to tailor the treatment to each patient’s unique skin type and pigmentation concerns.

    With minimal downtime, patients can resume their daily activities shortly after the session. Over the following weeks, as the body eliminates the broken-down pigments, the treated area gradually becomes clearer and more uniform in tone.

    3. BB Thulium Laser

    The BB Laser is a recent laser treatment that effectively targets facial pigment , brightens the skin and improves size of pores. In South Korea, many call it the BB Laser because of its ability to improve the texture and tone of the skin, just like when applying BB cream to the skin.

    Waking up to clear #nofilter skin has always everyone’s dream. BB Laser will produce results replicating the look of BB cream –BRIGHTER/ FAIRER, more RADIANT, SMOOTHER skin – without any makeup required.


    How does it work?

    Thulium BB Laser is a sub-ablative Thulium 1927nm laser for skin resurfacing and rejuvenating. The laser’s wavelength penetrates to a level between the lower part of the epidermis and dermis where it is able to target and treat melasma, freckles, sunspots and age spots while renewing damaged skin and stimulating collagen production.

    The wavelength penetrates the upper dermis while not causing the upper layer to peel.


    What kind of improvement can I expect to see with this treatment?

    • Skin brightening/ Fairer skin
    • Smoother, younger looking skin
    • Pore tightening
    • Improvement in pigmentation
    • Overall improvement in skin texture and tone
    • Improvement in fine wrinkles

    Freckles usually consists of pigment that are located superficially in the skin. They have a genetic component to it and occurs in individuals at a young age.  They are very sensitive to UV rays and many individuals see their freckles lighten in Winter (when there is less sunlight) and typically they get darker in the Summer when exposure to the sun is more abundant.


    In sunny Singapore where it is literally Summer all year round, using a sunscreen of SPF 30 at least is essential to prevent freckles from getting darker.

    Freckles are very treatable with pigmentation removal procedures and is primarily done so via pigment specific lasers. 

    There are many pigment specific lasers such as Q-Switch Lasers, ND YAG lasers, 1064 nm Lasers etc but the ones that are employed in our clinic are the Spectra XT Lightening laser and the Thulium BB Laser.

    This is a very common condition that typically affects Asian females.

    It’s also known as chloasma, or the “mask of pregnancy”. This condition is much more common in women than in men.

    Although there is no exact cause found, it is thought that several factors may predispose a person to develop this condition.

    These include:


    -Exposure to UV rays

    -Low thyroid hormone levels

    -Hormonal (this is especially so because it typically involves women at and around pregnancy, post-pregnancy, peri-menopausal and in younger women when they are on contraceptives)

    Do note that men can also develop melasma, though it is more uncommon as compared to women.

    Dr Ho Rui Ming has a special interest in conducting laser pigmentation removal for this problem and is very knowledgeable in the different approaches to the treatment.

    Age spots / sun spots are pigment arising from skin damage due to age and exposure to UV rays.  These can appear anywhere on the body but typically occurs on sun-exposed parts of the body such as the face, chest and hands.
