Acne, melasma and hyperpigmentation are three of the most common types of skin problems.
Acne occurs when oil and dead skin cells clog up the pores and follicles, resulting in white heads, black heads, red bumps and, in serious cases, pustules.
Melasma – the patchy pigmentation over the cheek, forehead and upper lid – is associated with high estrogen levels during pregnancy, oral contraceptives or hormone therapy.
Hyperpigmentation of the skin results from prolonged sun exposure, skin irritation or even acne. Pigmentation can affect anywhere from the face, the body and even to the hands. Using sunscreen for protection against the sun, applying topical creams and stopping certain medications are some methods of treatment.
At GynaeMD Women’s & Rejuvenation Clinic, in addition to these measures, we recommend non-ablative laser treatment to rejuvenate the skin. Being non-ablative and highly-customisable for a range of skin types, there is minimal downtime which means that our patients can return to regular activities after the treatment.
