Pigmentation and dark spots of various kinds on the face (eg freckles, sun spots, melasma, solar lentigines, Hori Nevus etc) can be a source of stress for many ladies and even men, especially above the age of 35. In the new digital age especially post covid, teleconferencing has become the new norm at work and even social life. Many of our patients have shared with us their desire to look their best on video platforms at both work and other social meet ups online. Our lady doctors understand that dark spots and pigmentation on the face can make one self conscious and result in loss of self confidence.
Sun damage of the skin due to frequent exposure to UV rays is one of the common causes of dark spots, brown spots and pigmetation among our patients. Other common common causes we encounter are related to genetics, hormones etc

Melasma is a fairly common skin condition among ladies in Singapore characterized by brown pigmentation on the cheeks, and sometimes also the bridge of nose, forehead and chin. In our practice, we encounter many ladies seeking help for pigmentation caused by melasma.
Frequently we also noted other types of pigmentation coexisting with the melasma.
Melasma can be treated and reduced significantly although it has no cure at the moment. So, do not despair as there is hope!
There are also good daily habits that you can practice at home that our team can teach you in order to maintain pigment free skin once your pigmentation has been removed and reduced.
Freckles are are flat small tan or light-brown spots on sun-exposed skin. Usually related to genetics and also UV exposure
3) Solar lentigines
Solar lentigines are dark patches of skin that develop during adulthood, especially more common above 40 years of age. It is primarily caused by cummulative UV exposure.
4) Hori Nevus
Hor Nevus is characterised by small macular hyperpigmentation on the face, especially the cheeks, nose and the both sides of the forehead. The color of lesion is mostly blotchy gray to blue. More commonly found in Asian. Hori Nevus is harmless and treatment is mainly for cosmetic reasons.

We have compiled some answers here that patients have asked us over our many years of practice. We look forward to help you in your pigmentation/ melasma removal journey.
How is Skin Pigmentation treated?
The most important starting point for treating pigmentation is making the right diagnosis. For us, we always begin with the all important detailed consultation.
In our detailed 30 min doctor consultation , our lady doctors will:
Analyse the location and severity of your pigmentation and determine the accurate diagnosis. ( eg melasma, freckles, solar lentigines, Hori Nevus etc)
Discuss possible causes of your pigmentation.
Take note of whether you have more than one coexisting pigmentation problems eg melasma can co-exist with other pigmentation problems– the treatment approach may be slightly different in each case.
We will also take special note of previous medications/ skincare / treatments that you may have done before. This will help us to customise your pigmentation removal treatment program better.
Finally, a customised Pigmentation Removal Treatment Plan will be designed for you to suit your concerns, needs, budget and schedule.
The treatment program for pigmentation must always be a holistic and integrative one to ensure that pigment removed has the least chance of recurring.
Our treatment plan for pigmentation will include:
A very important component of pigmentation treatment involves homecare products to remove pigmentation and also prevent or slow down new pigmentation formation. After making an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your pigmentation, our doctors will advise on a home care program that you can follow to start off your pigmentation treatment journey. It will be holistic to reduce the change of recurrence once pigmentation has been removed.
Home use programs can be further enhanced and complemented by our in-clinic treatments.
For in-clinic treatments, we harness the use of FDA approved integrative laser protocols that specially work on pigmentation and melasma from a multi-prong approach.
