Pigmentation

Did you know that facial pigmentation spots and patches are one of the biggest skin concerns of Singapore women? Living in a tropical country makes you vulnerable to skin pigmentation. While you cannot hide from the sun, you can lighten or remove pigmentation with the latest treatments.

Speak to a Dermatologist

Dr. Wong Soon Tee of Assurance Skin Clinic has been a Ministry of Health Accredited Dermatologist since 1998. In his 20 years of practice he has treated thousands of patients with pigmentation problems. In fact, he was one of the first Singapore doctors who combined OBAGI Skincare and IPL to clear pigmentation. Today, he continues to bring in tried and tested technology and medical-grade skincare products to safely and effectively banish the pigmentation spot and patches.

“Spot” the Real Problem

Melanin is the natural pigment in the body that gives color to hair, skin and eyes. Hyperpigmentation or brown spots occur when the melanin producing skin cells become unhealthy or damaged. This leads to production of more melanin pigment and cause the skin to darken.

However, there are different kinds of hyperpigmentation. Which one do you have?

  • Freckles
  • Lengitine / Sun spots
  • Melasma
  • Hori’s Macule
  • Post-inflammatory Hyper-pigmentation (PIH)
  • Age spots / Seborrheic keratosis

Beat that Blemish!

Don’t experiment with your skin! An accurate diagnosis is the key to effective pigmentation treatment. When the problem is not diagnosed accurately and wrong treatment approach is applied, it can worsen your skin pigmentation.

Dr Wong Soon Tee is an experienced dermatologist with over 20 years of experience. He will be able to accurately identify the cause and nature of your pigmentation and recommend the most suitable treatment.

Holistic Approach to Pigmentation Problems

Depending on your case, Dr Wong can recommend one or more of the following:

  • Sunscreens and medical grade lightening creams. These contain powerful ingredients that lighten the skin and help slow down melanin production. Dr. Wong prescribes the correct regimen for your hyperpigmentation to lighten or remove them with satisfactory outcome.
  • Dr. Wong uses the Helios III Q-Switched ND-YAG laser to break down your pigment without damaging the skin surface. In the hands of an experienced doctor, lasers can treat lentigines, Hori’s macule, freckles, stubborn acne marks, age spots as well as tattoos. With the latest Korean fractional pigment laser Helios III, the down time from laser treatment is minimal, recovery is a lot faster and the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is greatly reduced.
  • Optimal Pulse Technology (OPTTM) is an advanced and improved version of Intense Pulse Light (IPL).  It penetrates tissue to destroy pigments. Studies show that this technology can reduce superficial pigmentation by 84.6% after just three sessions.
