Individual results may vary.

 

Freckle (ephelis) – small, flat and light brown spots appearing on the skin. It is darker in colour than the surrounding skin. Having the skin continuously exposed to the sun’s Ultraviolet (UV) radiation will increase the occurrence of freckles. It is commonly found in individuals with fair, light skin and hair complexions. It is distributed over the cheekbones, nose, face, shoulder and upper arm areas. 

 

Hori’s nevus – light brown spots and found in women of Asian ancestry between the ages of 20 to 30 years old. It is situated on both sides above the cheekbones. 

 

Solar lentigo – brown spots appearing on the face, arm, back of hand or areas exposed to direct sunlight and is found in middle aged and elderly individuals. 

 

Treatment Methods


Individual results may vary.

 

Specific types of advanced laser technologies are utilised for the treatment of freckles, hori’s nevus and solar lentigo. The main types of advanced technologies utilised by BSL Clinic are the combination of the pigment reduction and pigment removal lasers. The laser pulls the pigment off the skin to reveal a smooth and radiant complexion. The utilisation of specific pigment lasers is able to deter the growth of melanin pigmentation, restricts the development of black marks (PIH) and prevents the darkening of pigments.

 Hori's Nevus Treatment

The treatment of hori’s nevus must be treated effectively through BSL Clinic’s highly experienced dermatologists to gain positive results. Laser beams penetrate the skin breaking the pigments down into small granules; then, the white blood cells will remove these pigmented granules, reducing black spots and preventing the pigments from becoming darker. The surrounding skin is not affected and will not become thinner or sensitive during pigment treatment. Smooth and bright skin is the treatment results. It takes about 6 treatments to extract the broken pigments out of the skin.

There are 4 stages that involve the prevention of new melanin production: 


1. Inhibition of pigment
2. Reducing amount of tyrosinase
3. Preventing tyrosinase activity
4. Blocking melanin transfer into keratinocytes

 

This pigment laser treatment involves no pain, but a tingling sensation may be experienced during the process. The use of cold air at -40 degrees Celsius is sprayed onto the targeted area to enhance comfortability during the pigment skin laser treatment. 

 

After Treatment Precautions

 

There is no downtime required, and the patient can immediately return to their daily activities. The appearance of a minor pinkish shape will occur and will diminish within 24 hours.
