Pigmentation Treatment Singapore

What is Pigmentation?

Commonly seen as brown spots or patches on the skin, Pigmentation is due to the accumulation of melanin in the skin.

Melanin is produced by melanocytes usually in response to a trigger such as sun exposure.

Oral Medications / Supplements

Maxi-White Oral Skin Care Supplements

Maxi-White Oral Skincare Supplements - Topical sunblocks require re-application every 4 to 6 hours to remain effective. This is difficult to achieve for the busy professional on the go.

Furthermore, most people only apply sunblock on the face, leaving other areas of the skin without UV protection.

Though not a direct replacement of applied sunblock, the Maxi-White supplement offers enhanced skin whitening and sun protection for all areas of the skin in a convenient once-daily dose of 2 tablets.

Maxi-White contains 4 clinically proven antioxidants that offer UV protection and skin whitening.

  1. Colourless Carotenoids
  2. Polypodium Leucotomos
  3. Glutathione
  4. L-cystine

Oral TA - Prescription only medication that is used in the treatment of melasma. 


Dr Edwin has developed an Aquapure Medi-facial protocol combined with Triple-Whitening Serum Electroporation to focus on improving pigmentation and skin brightening.  

The Aquapure Medi-Facial is an advanced form of microdermabrasion facial using medical-grade serums and technology to promote younger, brighter and glowing skin.

Paired with our specially formulated medical grade Triple Whitening C serum containing Arbutin, Vitamin B3 (niacinamide) and highly concentrated Vitamin C, it revitalises the skin, lightens pigmentation and boosts skin glow.

Spectra Laser

Pigmentation Laser

Dr Edwin's first choice for treating pigmentation is the Spectra Pigmentation Laser treatment in Singapore. It is a powerful and versatile FDA approved Nd: Yag laser that is clinically proven to treat a wide variety of pigmentary conditions such as Freckles, Sunspots, Age spots and Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH). 

For Melasma, Dr Edwin uses the Quadrostar Pro Yellow laser which lightens Melasma by removing excess pigmentation. More importantly, by targeting blood vessels supplying the pigment cells, the Pro Yellow laser improves longevity of results by suppressing pigment formation and lowering the risk of melasma recurrence.

Carbon Spectra Laser "Hollywood" Peel

Dr Edwin recommends this treatment to those with oily acne-prone skin coupled with pigmentation and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) acne marks as it is an effective "all-in-one" treatment to treat multiple skin issues.

How do I find the Best Pigmentation Treatment Clinic in Singapore has to offer?

Every clinic offers different pigmentation treatment options to lighten dark and stubborn pigments. No one clinic is same as the other. If you want to make sure that pigmentation treatments are performed safely and effectively, make sure that the clinic is experienced in offering pigmentation lasers. The clinic should also offer information on the various types of pigmentation laser treatments before proceeding.
