Pico Laser for Asian Skin

One of the most celebrated aspects of Singapore is its diversity. Hence, catering for different skin types is important. Singapore consists mostly of Asians and this means there are a vast variety of skin types and conditions. 

Among Asians, skin tones may vary from light to darker shades. Besides, the constant sun exposure throughout the year creates all sorts of varying skin conditions. 

Did You Know Asian Skins Are Harder To Treat?

The quest for spotless skin is more difficult in Asians compared to light-skin patients such as Caucasians.

This is due to an increased amount of melanocytes in Asians that produce dark pigments called melanin inside your skin. Triggers for this melanin production vary from skin irritation, inflammation, acne or excessive sunlight.

Melanin is not necessarily bad for your skin as it is a natural protector against UV rays and it gives your skin the colour you see today. However, excessive production causes dark patches which can be less pleasing to the eyes.

Well In simple terms, the darker the tone of the skin, the more susceptible it is to skin pigmentation issues such as freckles, acne scars and sunspots.

Fortunately for all perfect skin enthusiasts in Singapore, the Pico Laser technology is designed to suit Asian skin by delivering effective results for different types of skin concerns.

Why is Pico Laser Suitable for Asian Skin Types?

As Asian skin is more susceptible to pigmentation and tends to have a more visible reaction towards skin trauma or damage, laser treatments have to be gentle and precise to avoid worsening skin conditions.

Pico Laser is an effective treatment to address superficial skin pigments and help smoothen skin texture and wrinkles. They have the precision required to erase pigmentations without damaging the surrounding skin.

There is also research done to support the claim that Asian skins have denser collagen bundles that can contract collagen more easily as compared to Caucasian peers. 

As a result, Pico Laser works well in stimulating skin collagen and the results are further amplified when combined with an energy treatment such as HIFU treatment.

How Does Pico Laser Work?

Pico Lasers work by delivering ultrashort, high-energy pulses, measured in picoseconds or a thousandth of a nanosecond.

They generate immense energy at different wavelengths, allowing them to target and treat damaged melanocytes at different depths of the skin.

Pico Laser is safe and effective in treating various pigmentation conditions arising from aging and sun damage, such as melasma, freckles, acne scars, sunspots and solar lentigo.

The treatment boosts the production of elastin production in the skin resulting in fuller, softer and more radiant skin. The lasers are heat-free with minimal side effects so you won’t need to worry much about that asian flush after the treatment.
