Pigmentation is one of the most common problems that people are afflicted with these days. One major factor is exposure to UV radiation from the sun, resulting in increased melanin production. Melanin is the pigment in our skin that gives it colour and protects us from UV radiation.
Pigmentation conditions that we can treat
Common pigment conditions include:
- Age Spots / Sun Spots,
- Hori’s Nevus and
- Naevus of Ota.
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.

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 our pigmentation removal procedure and is primarily done so via our pigment specific Spectra XT laser and the BB Laser.
Hori’s Naevus is a condition whereby the pigment is located deeper in the skin. Causes include a family history/ genetics as well as a relation to hormones. It typically occurs on the cheeks and appear greyish-brown in color.
