Address skin pigmentation issues with the advanced “BB” laser therapy at Chrysalis Medical Aesthetics.
Living in sunny Singapore, we can’t help being exposed to UV rays. And for many of us, this means only one thing: pigmentation woes, like melasma, freckles, sunspots and age spots. These problems can make us look older than we are and affect our self-esteem.
Dr Ho Rui Ming, medical director of Chrysalis Medical Aesthetics, recommends the daily use of sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun. Other treatment options include specially formulated topical creams and oral medications that brighten the complexion. If you want the best results, however, you may wish to consult a dermatologist or a doctor with a special interest in facial pigmentation.
Dr Ho, who received his Master’s degree in Clinical Dermatology from St John’s Institute of Dermatology in London, believes in developing and offering the latest treatment options for his patients. “I like to combine different treatment modalities to achieve the best possible outcome,” he says.
One such treatment is the “BB” laser, a unique sub-ablative laser that targets dark spots, acne scars and other skin blemishes. At the same time, it promises to improve skin elasticity, minimise pores, lift saggy skin, reduce fine lines, and give skin an overall brighter, clearer appearance. According to Dr Ho, Chrysalis is the first clinic in Singapore to offer this laser treatment, which he says is suitable even for sensitive skin and has no major side effects, apart from slight redness which lasts for a few days.
“BB” laser and other treatments are available at Chrysalis Medical Aesthetics, which has three locations islandwide: #03-26 AMK Hub, #01-25 Bedok Mall, and #03-13 Pacific Plaza. For more information, visit www.chrysalisaesthetics.com.sg.
