So now you know more about One Face Medical, I shall tell you what I'm actually doing there.

Actually the treatment which I'm invited to do is to treat pigmentation. However I don't have any pigmentation "yet", so I invited my auntie to receive the treatment instead.

What's Pigmentation and what's the cause of it?

Well regardless of your age, if you don't apply sunscreen or even if you have freckles since young, pigmentation will become an issue! Pigmentation is caused by sun exposure and specifically the UVA rays which penetrate deep into your skin and cause ageing. It is a skin condition where patches of the skin turn into a darker shade of colour due to excessive presence of melanin, found on skin surface. Melanin is produced by melanocytes and functions as miniature umbrellas to skin cells to protect the skin from sun and UV damages.

The best way to prevent pigmentation if you haven't have it now is to use the right amount of sunblock. Reapply it after a few hours throughout the day – these are what dermatologists consider the best way to prevent freckles, dark spots and of course, skin cancer but the truth is majority of us can’t keep up with this regimen or some are even lazy to do so. 

In a sunny weather like Singapore, skipping sunblock is probably the worst thing you can ever do to your skin. Especially if you drive, you might notice that one side of your face is slightly darker and this is because UV rays have the ability to penetrate through glass windows. Similarly, office ladies are not spared from the brutal UV rays either. If your work desk is near the window panels, this is a clear sign that you have to step up on your sun protection efforts.

Research has found that UV rays are responsible for 80% of skin ageing – think premature wrinkles, pigmentation problems, less bouncy skin, rough skin texture and sallow skin!

You definitely wouldn’t want to look haggard when you are still in the prime of your life. So remember to layer on your sunblock even when you are home!! It's not just about the sunblock. It's also factor alot on choosing the right one! 
Many have the misconception that the higher the SPF level, the better protection we will get. However, that’s not the case. In fact, using products that are too strong may cause stress to our skin. Generally speaking, SPF 20 provides adequate protection for most of us who stay indoors. You will only require sunblock with SPF 30 and above if you are out under the sun most of the time. Removal of freckles, dark spots and other pigmentation problems can prove to be a hassle. So practicing early intervention is the best way to keep yourself looking youthful and radiant. 
For those of you already have serious issue from pigmentation, fear not as One Face Medical Aesthetics is here to help! 
My aunt "Samantha" met up with Dr David and team to have a consultation to see if she's a suitable candidates for laser treatment.
The clinic look really professional and felt really comfortable after stepping in.

Samantha was given a medicated cream name DPplus for pigmentation to apply at alternate week before going back after 3 weeks to see if she still need to proceed with the laser. Yes there's cream to apply pre-treatment. In some cases, if you are lucky you do not need to continue with laser treatment after applying the cream as it lightens your pigment.

The bottom right pic that's with makeup on.
You can see the obvious pigment.



Two week after using the cream, she feed-backed that it seems much lighter. This pic is without makeup



Do stay tune as I will be doing a post review after she goes back for a review!
