Pigmentary issues are dealt first by classifying on the basis of underlying cause, affected part and level of pigmentation – whether it is epidermal or deep dermal. It is very important to rule out any underlying systemic condition or any hormonal aberrations before starting the treatment.

The commonly encountered pigmentation problems are:
• Melasma – brown, flat patches over the cheeks, forehead and upper lips on both sides.
1. Bigger than sun spots, borers not well defined because its deeper
2. Lighter then sun spots because its deeper
3. Mostly patchy
4. mostly around cheek area on both sids, although head can be involved.

•Sun Spots -
1. Discrete and defined borders
2. Darker in appearance because more superficial
3. Mostly Circular
4. Any part of the face

For Patients that have Melasma, you will need a laser treatment that can penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. Although IPL cannot do that, we still have a Solution for you. It is called the Spectra Laser by Lutronic. Take a look at this video to find out more:

• Freckles – tiny, pin-head sized tan or brown flat spots over face caused by clustering of concentrated melanin

• Post-inflammatory pigmentation – develops on the face, neck or chest secondary to inflammatory dermatoses such as acne, atopic dermatitis, bug bite or psoriasis.

• Hyperpigmentation in pregnancy – seen in axilla, areola, lower abdomen in midline, external genitalia and anal regions

• Cosmeceutical induced pigmentation or Ashy dermatoses – diffuse pigmentation over face due to idiopathic allergic reactions to cosmetic products

 

At Skin Perfect Brothers, we’ve been treating Melasma for the past 11 years. We use a laser that does involves minimal to zero heat source, nor does it involve any pealing off the skin. Instead, unlike any other methods (lasers or chem peels) , the laser penetrates deep into the Dermal layer, and become a Shock Wave and shatter the patch of Melasma in to Dust Particles. The lymphatics in the body removes it and detox it out of the body!

It is unknown so far, but research has point to hormonal imbalance, stress, excessive heat, pregnancy, genetics, certain medications ( antidepressants, and Blood pressure medications), inappropriate and unsupervised use of bleaching creams, but nothing compares to the effects of Sun exposure, which can dramatically increase Melasma.

Two factors to watch for when receiving treatments for Melasma:
1. Heat
2. Peeling.

The treatments offered (peels and pixel Q-switch laser) at Skin Perfect Brothers are absolutely painless with zero recovery time. No anaesthesia or numbing gels are required. No serious side-effects or complications are noted post-treatment, however some patients may get redness and inflammation over the treated area which is self-limiting and settles overnight. Ice compresses may be applied to the treatment areas to speed up recovery and to make you more comfortable.
