What are the benefits of the Laser Skin Whitening Program?

The Laser skin whitening program is the right treatment for you if you have a darker skin type and if you would like your skin to be:

  • Clean skin by removing blemishes – freckles, moles, age spots, hair, large pores, acne, blood vessels.
  • Clearer skin – by improving skin pigmentation.
  • Brighter skin – by producing overall skin whitening.
  • Smoother skin – by producing better skin texture.
  • Tighter skin – by increasing skin tone.
  • Younger looking skin – by reducing fine wrinkles.

Treating Asian skin with Laser is challenging, but the Laser Skin Whitening Program is safe for Asian and other darker skin types. We have successfully treated over 5,000 individuals with darker skin.

What skins are good for the Laser Skin Whitening program?

As discussed above, we have designed our Laser Skin Whitening Program mainly to be effective in darker skin types. 

Type 4 is skin that is generally regarded as “dark” skin. The Laser Skin Whitening Program is designed to treat people with Fitzpatrick’s skin type 4.

It also works in the lighter coloured caucasian skin.

 

Does Laser Skin Whitening Program make your skin white?
  • The “White” in Laser Skin Whitening Program means not the color white, but rather clarity and purity.
  • We do not wish to make a person “white”. However, it produces a “whitening” effect meaning Asian skin that looks clean and clear.

What is special about Laser Skin Whitening Program?

Laser Skin Whitening Program is a skin program designed by Dr Peter Kim that is suitable for Asian, Brown & Ethnic skin by:

  • treating various forms of pigmentations
  • producing skin lightening
  • producing healthier skin
  • tighter skin with collagen induction.

It includes uses of 5 lasers, collagen induction therapies, and vitamin infusions.

What 5 lasers does Dr Kim use?

The laser is a specialized light (specific wavelength) that is used to treat a specific portion of the skin. For example,

  • Hair laser is used for hair removal,
  • Vascular laser for redness and capillaries,
  • Pigment laser: pigment lasers for producing general whitening and removing specific blemishes,
  • Mole removal lasers for lumpy skin growths, and
  • Longer wavelenght Laser for skin firmness.

One laser is not enough to create holistic, beautiful skin. You do not need to ask us what laser to use, we will use the appropriate lasers to produce the best result for you. Our endpoint is not the laser skin treatment per se, but our endpoint is to create beautiful skin using the best combination of lasers.

Collagen Induction Program?

Collagen induction treatments are standard component of our program: lasers, MTS needling and growth factor cryo iontophoresis.

Our aging process inevitably leads to a decrease in collagen production. This is unavoidable. The collagen induction therapy can help reverse this decline over time.

If you want even better tightening, we offer a laser skin tightening program that can help tighten your skin.

What healthy skin treatments are included in the Program?

 

  • We routinely use cryo-iontophoresis to push into the skin the vitamins, growth factors, and other essential skin nutrients.
  • We also routinely perform deep skin exfoliation and skin cleaning with an ultrasonic skin cleanser (Dermasound).
How long before seeing the result?

It depends on your skin type, skin condition, and sensitivity to Laser. Generally speaking, if you have a very dark skin that tans very easily, more treatment is required. Treatment of melasma may take years to improve whereas treatment of freckles may take only few sessions.

Most people will start seeing results usually after 4 treatments. A good result is about 60-70% improvement and this will take around 8 -12 treatment sessions. For even better result, more treatments are needed. However, there is a signficant individual variations.

Some people may require additional treatments as some skin conditions (such as melasma/ABNOM) and those with sensitive skins may take a longer time to respond.

All laser treatments are temporary. Most of the spots will come back once you stop the laser treament. For this reason, maintenance treatments are required and recommended.

What are the potential complications?

About 95% of patients do not experience any complications.

In 5%, we noticed a range of complications. Hyperpigmentation (post inflammatory hyperpigmentation or skin darkening), hypopigmentation and acne breakouts are the more common complications. It is important that you limit the sun exposure during the Laser treatments.

The complications occur more frequently in patients with skin pigmentation disorders, dark skin tones, sun spots, sensitive skin, severe sun damage, damaged skin cells, skin discoloration, lack of sun protection and skin inflammation.

Some patients found that although the Laser Skin Whitening Program did make an improvement, it did not meet their expectations.

If you have any complaints or concerns, please raise it with Dr Peter Kim.

We do not use Picosure focus lasers, Picosure focus laser, Fraxel laser, or laser resurfacing. We have tried these lasers in the past and they don’t appear to be effective in producing skin whitening results.
