A Doctor's Guide To Pigmentation Treatment In Singapore (2019)

A Doctor's Guide To Pigmentation Treatment In Singapore (2019)

Pigmentation treatments are on the rise here in Singapore and there is a reason for that. Due to our hot weather all year round, we are constantly exposed to UV (Ultraviolet) rays.

This makes us more prone to develop skin pigmentation issues, and even more for those with darker skin due to their prolonged UV exposure. Women are also more prone to develop skin conditions like melasma, freckles, and Hori's naevus. 

Our users have these concerns as well and this is well-reflected on DoctorxDentist. If you go to our homepage, you can see that Acne & Scars and Aesthetic Medicine are the top two topics that we receive most questions about.

Despite how prevalent the issue is, we tend to be misinformed on how we can effectively treat our pigmentation issues. As such, I have put together this guide on pigmentation treatments in Singapore, to help you make more informed decisions.

Read on to know how you can find a pigmentation treatment that best suits your skin condition and skin type!

Laser skin resurfacing is the gold standard when it comes to treating skin irregularities. In recent years, laser skin resurfacing treatments have seen a surge in popularity in various countries, including Singapore, thanks to advancements in laser technology which has made it more effective and safe at the same time. [1] However, as effective as it is, there tends to be some confusion or lack of knowledge among the public when it comes to aftercare management.
