What are the causes of hyperpigmentation?
The common cause of hyperpigmentation would be from sun damage. Ultraviolet rays or UV rays are given out by the sun, and considered as one of the biggest red flags towards unprotected skin. Other than sun damage, pigmentation also occurs from age factor, change in hormones as well as low-quality skincare products.
Do lightening creams work?
It is recommended that we upgrade our skincare routine steps by adding serums, vitamins and what not. However, some products claim to have functions to treat pigmentations or lightening the skin, but then these products' molecules are too big to seep into our dermis layer to treat the said pigmentation spots. Hence, it is safe to say that these products are ineffective towards the treatment of spots and hyperpigmentation on the skin.
Is laser treatment painful?
Rest assured! Our laser treatment will not use any kind of incisions and injections. It also certainly will not be painful as it is a fast process, brief and comfortable as the laser will be in contact with the skin for only a short amount of time. Only a warm sensation will be experienced when undergoing the laser treatment process.
I am in a rush, when can I expect the results?
Since C6 and P9 are two different laser treatments, the result differs. As for C6, small pigmentations such as freckles and sunspots are expected to decrease after only one session and darker pigmentation takes about 6 to 12 sessions for complete removal. P9 uses a fast technology and is 1000 times faster than basic laser treatment, hence, 1 to 3 sessions is enough to see the complete result.
Is an aftercare routine required?
Both facial laser treatments require aftercare, and that is applying moisturisers and SPF 30+ sunscreens to protect your skin from harmful rays and other substances. Please avoid acidic substances such as chemical peels or exfoliating products and certainly do not pick your skin to avoid post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
