Treating Pigmentation @ Freia Medical Clinic

Our face is one of our most important asset in this lifetime. It defines who we are, it impacts how others see us. It affects how we see ourselves. Unwanted pigmentation remains a very common and frustrating condition, afflicting more than half of women (and men). Uneven skin tone, caused by irregular pigmentation makes the skin appear “dirty”, aged and dull. As such, the radiance and glow that we all covet for can be very difficult to achieve. There are many over the counter cosmetics products, cleverly called cosmeceuticals that claim to be able to lighten skin. These claims often go unchecked, as cosmetics company are not required to seek clearance from any health regulatory bodies. Without any scientific proof, these claims remain, at best unverified claims.

In medical clinics, the treatments that are available often come under strict scrutiny by the medical community and health regulatory bodies. One such treatment is the Medlite C6 Laser system, which is US FDA approved for treatment of pigmentation. The US FDA endorsement is a mark of high standards of safety and effectiveness. In addition to endorsement from regulatory and reputable scientific bodies, patients and doctors have witnessed the benefits of treating unwanted pigmentation with the Medlite C6. A great wealth of data and articles have been published in renowned medical scientific journals of the benefits of the Medlite C6 laser.

Many different types of blemishes, ranging from simple freckles, to solar lentigenes, to melasma, and deeper pigmentary problems such as Naevus of Ota / Ito can be effectively lightened. In many cases, complete clearance is also possible. This is often coupled with good daily skin care to thoroughly cleanse and tone, protect and moisturize our precious skin. Avoidance of excessive sunlight remains a very important strategy in our quest for radiant, clear and blemish-free skin.
