Hyperpigmentation Treatment in Singapore

Living in a hot and sunny country can affect your complexion in many ways. Besides making you perspire more, overexposure to the sun can cause you to develop dark spots, which are also known as hyperpigmentation.

When your complexion is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun, your body safeguards itself by generating a pigment called melanin. Therefore, prolonged and overexposure to the sun can cause an overproduction of melanin, which will appear on your skin as dark spots.

It is one of the most common gripes experienced by women across all nationalities and age groups. As it can cause discolouration and an uneven tone, it can be a frustrating and time-consuming issue for most women.

Very often, women simply conceal their dark spots and discolouration with makeup as topical products are not usually sufficient in eliminating this condition. You can ditch your makeup products and embrace brighter, fairer, and clearer look.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How can I benefit from hyperpigmentation treatment in Singapore?

As Singapore is generally sunny year-round, it can be difficult to completely avoid this condition caused by UV rays. If you work in a job that requires you to move about a lot or you simply enjoy being outdoors, you may be more prone to experiencing it. Furthermore, acne breakouts, hormonal changes, genetics, and certain medications can increase your chances of developing it. These are factors that you may not always have control over.

It is often difficult to get rid of it as topical products can only do so much to lighten your tone. Most of the time, itmarks will remain even after prolonged use of topical creams.

As it causes areas of your complexion to darken, it can be a hassle for you to even out your tone daily using colour-correcting products and heavy makeup. If you have this problem on your arms or back, you might also steer clear of tank tops and sleeveless clothing. Instead of feeling self-conscious and constantly covering up your dark and discoloured spots, you deserve to have the freedom to wear whatever you want. Ultimately, having clearer look not only boosts your confidence but it can also make your everyday choices and routines a lot more fuss-free.


2. Why is this procedure better than other products or methods?

This procedure uses advanced technology to deliver non-invasive energy. It can reach deeper areas that most products and peels cannot. Moreover, as the dark pigmentation absorbs energy and heats up quickly, it will break up into smaller fragments of particles that will rise to your surface and start to diminish. This is a highly effective and fast way to get rid of stubborn pigmentation. Over-the-counter products can often take years to produce positive effects!

Furthermore, the procedure is safe. Instead of chemical peels or home equipment that may cause undesirable side effects, you can rest assured that our method has been proven to be completely safe.


3. What can I expect during the hyperpigmentation treatment?

Before starting any process, our qualified therapists will sit down with you to discuss about your condition, any existing conditions you might have, as well as the results you can expect. The hyperpigmentation removal procedure will last anywhere between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on how sizeable your darkened area is. A cold gel will be applied, and you will be wearing safety goggles for your eyes throughout the procedure. Including your pre- and post-treatment preparation, you can expect to be in the room for about an hour.


4. Does the hyperpigmentation treatment in Singapore hurt?

If you have a fear of pain, you will be glad to know that the procedure is generally painless. A numbing cream will be applied to minimise any discomfort. During the procedure, you may feel slight heat or a sensation similar to a rubber band lightly snapping on you. However, the sensation is usually not painful, and our therapists will take steps to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure.


5. How soon can I see results?

You will notice clearer complexion and lightened spots within the first few sessions. Many of our clients will start to see a significant difference in as early as three weeks after. Depending on your desired outcome, it may take you several sessions to achieve the results you truly want. It is normal that with every session, you will continue to observe greater improvements to your targeted areas and overall complexion. Overall, your complexion will look brighter, fairer, and more radiant.


6. What is the recovery time?

There is typically no downtime after. After each session, your surface may have a slightly pinkish appearance but it will return to normal after about 20 minutes. You can return to your usual routines and continue on with your day. Following the procedure, it is recommended that you apply sunscreen on your targeted areas to safeguard your skin against further sun exposure. Coupled with good skincare practices, following the post-treatment care instructions will go a long way in maintaining your clear and rejuvenated look.
