There is a rising trend in people seeking aesthetic solutions for pigmentation removal in Singapore.
These pigmentation disorders can arise due to genetics, excessive UV exposure, our lifestyle habits and even occupational requirements.
The dark, brown spots and patches not only make our complexion look dull, these pigmentations can also be embarrassing for us, and make us lose confidence in ourselves.
With the help of our professional pigmentation removal treatment, your skin pigmentation can be improved significantly, leaving you with brighter and flawless skin.
In order to achieve the desired outcome, we utilise a synergised combination for pigmentation treatment consisting of a suite of laser treatments, medical-grade pigmentation creams and oral supplements.
Different types of pigmentation require different kinds of treatments. Our pigmentation removal approach is highly tailored for you based on your skin condition and severity of the condition.
We have heard stories of recurring pigmentation problems after the pigmentation treatments. Fret not, we will walk the journey with you to advise on the post-treatment care and habits that you should inculcate to keep your skin glowing.
As part of combination therapy for pigmentation removal, medicated creams are prescribed for daily home use. We also recommend oral supplements that have been scientifically proven to improve pigmentation conditions.
Hydroquinone is a compound that inhibits tyrosinase, the enzyme responsible for melanin synthesis. Application of this skin-lightening cream can lighten the skin tone and pigmentation through the reduced production of melanin.
Cyspera cream contains cysteamine, a natural molecule with anti-melanoma, anti-mutagenic, and anti-carcinogenic effects in the body. The application of the cream can help reduce the excess melanin in the affected pigmented spots.
Heliocare contains the Fernblock extract. It confers defensive abilities to the skin to help fight against the damage of UV radiation. This patented technology demonstrated effectiveness in many clinical studies, and is an integral part of pigmentation removal protocols.
Crystal Tomato® contains pure carotenoid extracts from a special breed of non-GMO white tomatoes. It serves as a sunscreen solution against UVA and UVB rays. Crystal Tomato has anti-inflammatory properties and can prevent melanin synthesis to aid pigmentation removal.
Melanin is a brown pigment that gives skin its colour. Several different conditions or factors such as excessive sun exposure can cause you to produce excess melanin, forming deposits in the skin and resulting in the darkening of your skin.
When a laser beam is applied on the skin, the laser is absorbed by the pigment molecules (melanosomes) in the skin cells. This absorbed energy will break down the pigments into smaller pieces.
Now smaller in size, these pigment particles are removed more efficiently by our own cellular mechanisms, resulting in a brighter skin tone.
We have a comprehensive suite of laser machines to perform pigmentation removal in Singapore. These machines differ in peak power and pulse duration, and have varying depths of penetration. This diversity allows us to treat different skin pigmentation conditions.
We will cleanse your face thoroughly prior to the pigmentation removal treatment. For sensitive patients, numbing cream may be applied to the treatment areas.
You will be asked to wear protective eyewear and may hear beeping or tapping sounds as the laser beams are applied on the skin. The sensation of the laser may range from a mild prickling to slight warmth.
Post-procedure care includes application of recovery creams prescribed by Dr. Heng, as well as medical-grade pigmentation creams to be used at home.
The laser protocols are specially designed by Dr Heng Wee Soon for pigmentation removal to target unwanted melanin pigment molecules within the skin, leaving you with a brighter skin tone and a more even distribution of natural melanin.

Lasers are not bad for the skin. In fact, they can be very effective to treat different skin conditions.
However, in the wrong hands it can cause complications such as:
* Burns / blisters
* Hypopigmentation: permanent white spots due to too many sessions of laser done at too short intervals.
Thats why we always emphasize for laser treatments to be done by a professional doctor.
In Singapore, most pigmentation conditions that are seen are known as sun-induced pigmentation, and these cannot be cured completely by the pigmentation removal laser treatment.
With UV radiation in the background, the skin may still produce abnormally large amounts of melanin and this will cause pigmentation to recur again.
The important thing therefore becomes not just about treating the pigmentation, but also to reduce the risk of pigmentation recurrence.
Most patients are suitable for laser treatments, except
Yes, pigmentation can turn darker after laser treatment.
This is known as post-injury hyperpigmentation (PIH).
PIH happens when the laser is done incorrectly, e.g. too strong settings or an inappropriate laser was used.
Laser is a double edged sword. It can improve pigmentation, only if done correctly.
