1. What causes black spot on face?
Discoloured spots can encompass a wide range of complexion issues. Regardless, most of them develop to the overproduction of pigments. They can be a result of freckles, which are small and flat marks that typically appear on face, neck and back due to overexposure to the sun. Freckles appear in a sparse manner (like being peppered onto the surface) and are usually hereditary.
Dark spots may also signify age spots (also known as solar lentigines). They appear as precise darkened patches and can vary in size and number. They are triggered by ultraviolet exposure too and can be much harder to fade away than typical freckles. In the same vein, a condition called melasma. However, melasma can spread over a much larger area. Appearing in patches, melasma can be very dark or very light in colour. While melasma can develop due to overexposure to the sun, it can be triggered by hormonal shifts, pregnancy, and certain types of medication.
Another common cause is hyperpigmentation triggered by highly inflamed skin. Commonly referred to as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, this condition occurs as a result of inflamed or damaged surface. When your inflamed skin is trying to repair itself from a wound or acne breakout, there will be an increase in melanin production as a natural response to cell damage. Furthermore, squeezing and picking your zits will cause further lesions in your follicle wall, which is why doing so will usually lead to discolouration.
2. Why should I opt for your treatment?
Considering all the aforementioned factors, it can be extremely difficult to prevent dark marks from developing throughout your lifetime. Pigmentation issues and marks typically occur due to overexposure to the sun, so it does not help that we live in a perpetually sunny climate. While you might be doing your best to avoid sunlight and take preventive measures like applying sunscreen, you should take note that the sun’s ultraviolet rays can still seep through your home and office windows.
Moreover, many creams and serums available on the market are not able to reach deeper into your skin to target stubborn dark pigmentation. You will just end up splurging on dozens of products that are either inefficient or useless. One of the best solutions is to undergo a proper pigmentation treatment that can deliver quick and effective results.
3. How to remove black spot on face safely and effectively?
If you are terrified of sharp instruments or questionable chemicals, fret not. Our advanced pigmentation treatment does not use any of that. Instead, it taps on non-invasive energy to specifically target stubborn marks. The heat from the energy will stimulate and disassemble the dark pigmentation. As a result, the fragmented dark pigmentation will be recognised by your body as waste and begin to rise to your surface and flake away. It is a safe and effective technique to eliminate ugly patches, without disrupting your surrounding healthy tissues.
4. What is your actual procedure like?
After you complete a discussion with our qualified therapists about your concerns, as well as the treatment process and expected outcome, you can schedule your first session with us. Your therapist will guide you through some simple preparation steps to prime you for the treatment. A numbing cream will be applied to ensure that you remain as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure.
During the procedure, you will feel considerable heat coming from the applicator, but you can rest assured that this sensation is typically painless. The procedure will take about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the severity. Thereafter, a gentle mask, as well as some moisturiser and sunscreen, will be applied as a treatment aftercare.
5. What results can I expect from the treatment?
Results may differ with each individual, but you can generally begin to notice an improvement within two to three weeks following the treatment. You will start to see your condition fading, as well as a brighter and fairer tone. Depending on your goal appearance, you might be expected to undergo a few sessions to attain the best outcome. By the end of your treatment course, you can enjoy a more radiant and speckless complexion.
