Skin pigmentation, unlike other skin conditions, isn’t widely discussed. Often, people don’t even know what it is. They look in the mirror and notice a dull, brown patch on their cheek. Hyperpigmentation, in simple terms, is essentially dark spots.
But don’t worry. If this sounds like what you’re going through, there is skin pigmentation treatment available. We understand, fair clear skin is important to you. Just like other skin conditions, hyperpigmentation can affect your self-esteem.
Crystal-clear skin is a universal symbol of beauty. So, let’s talk about hyperpigmentation.
Pigmentation occurs when there’s an oversupply of melanin in an area of the skin. It can be genetic or caused by external factors, such as sun exposure but, in most people, hyperpigmentation is caused by the sun.
Three common types of pigmentation
This skin condition has varying characteristics, from person to person. The most common types you’ll see are… freckles, melasma, and solar lentigos (sun or age spots). Acne outbreaks or using the wrong skincare products can also cause a skin ‘injury’, which can also lead to hyperpigmentation.
If you’ve been researching skin ‘pigmentation treatment Singapore’ online, you’ve probably come across Cyspera. It’s a skin pigment-correcting and melasma cream that harnesses Cysteamine, a natural antioxidant found in the body, that helps reduce pigmentation and lighten the skin.
But, it’s a slow road to clear skin again. And it’s only part of the big picture.
This cysteamine cream is not only a safe but it is also a highly bio-compatible and non-carcinogenic solution that has been clinically-proven!
The medically-proven pigmentation treatment
To treat pigmentation, a combination of solutions is necessary, to lighten the skin quicker and more effectively. This can include laser treatments, chemical peels, oral medication and, of course, topical creams (Cyspera).
But, one device has the medical ‘tick-of-approval’ to reduce pigmentation. The Q-Switch ND Yag laser targets melanin in the skin (the oversupply that causes hyperpigmentation) and breaks it down. When combined with IPL treatments, this dual pigment targeting produces an overall brightening look.
It’s important to know, there’s no one approach that fixes all. Customised treatment plans are necessary to help achieve your version of clear skin.
Melasma is unique and not always easy to treat, compared to other types of pigmentations. Once the procedures are complete, Melasma usually requires a maintenance routine. But this won’t be a burden, so don’t worry. Q-Switch ND Yag laser and IPL care can help stimulate collagen growth and even reduce the visibility of pores.
Chances are, your skin will look even better than how it did, pre-pigmentation.
