Considering extensive hand washing has become our daily routine, skin dryness and irritation is a serious concern for many people.

 

Daily mask-wearing has triggered acne and skin irritation.

Eyes Makeup is Trending

Beauty trends are shifting.

 

According to reports, the sales for makeup products have been declining, and it will be a “total beauty reset”.

 

Lipstick and foundation sales have dropped but there’s a surge in sales in eye makeup products.

Your hair is usually the first thing people notice first about you.

 

 

It’s often described as one’s crowning glory.

 

 

Hair Loss & Ageing of Hair

Just like other parts of our body, our hair and scalp will go through ageing and face its own set of problems too.

 

 

Some people start losing their hair as early as late teens and early 20s.

 

 

6 Types of Hair Loss and Scalp Problems

Common hair and scalp problems include the following:

 

 

 

 

1) Hair Loss (Alopecia)

Hair loss (alopecia) is a frequent concern for both men and women.

 

For males, it commons affects the crown and frontal hairline. For females, it usually affects the crown and frontal scalp.

 

 

Androgenic alopecia in itself is not a medical condition and is due to a combination of genetics, ageing and hormones.

 

 

Treatment for Hair Loss in Singapore

 


Fotona laser scalp treatment is a clinically proven treatment which combines different wavelength to reach the deepest layers of the scalp and hair follicles.

 

It helps to activate the natural healing process and restores natural hair growth.

 

Other treatment options include:

 

 

 

2) Bald Patches

Bald patches can be due to a variety of causes. The two most common causes would be alopecia areata and scalp ringworm.

 

 

Alopecia areata usually leads to a few bald spots.

 

It is believed to be due to the body’s own immune system attacking the hair follicles and family history is an important risk factor.

 

 

 

3) Scalp Ringworm

Scalp ringworm or tinea capitis is a fungal infection of the scalp.

 

Tinea capitis appears as one or more oval areas covered with grey scales, often associated with itch and hair loss.

 

 

 

The patches may be red, inflamed and dotted with pus-filled vesicles (pustules).  Tiny black dots, representing broken hairs, may also be seen on the patches.

 

 

 

4) Itchy Scalp

 

Scalp pruritus, known as itchy scalp, is a common condition. There is a wide range of causes.

 

 

5) Dandruff

 

Dandruff, also called seborrheic dermatitis is undoubtedly the most common cause. It leads to an itchy and flaky scalp with areas of redness.

 

The problem tends to begin in late adolescence but is most common in young adults and the elderly. It is more common in males than in females.

 

Dandruff may be worse with stress and infrequent shampooing. Fortunately, it is not contagious.

 

 

 

6) Head Lice

 

Head lice outbreaks is not common in Singapore but can occur among school-going children.

 

It is highly contagious and the most prominent symptoms are intense scalp itching.

 

Head louse is an infestation by the human head louse. The female louse lays eggs (nits) on the hair shaft close to the scalp and those nits hatch about 8-10 days later.

 

Hence, moving lice or non-moving nits may be seen on the scalp and hair. It is important to seek treatment as soon as possible if you suspect you have head lice as it is highly contagious.

Is skin pigmentation bothering you?

 

 

You might have considered going through laser pigmentation treatment to get rid of those unwanted freckles and spots effectively.

 

 

For those who are interested but afraid of going through laser pigmentation removal, this post will answer some of the most common misconceptions about laser treatments.

 

 

 

 

5 Most Common Misconceptions about Laser Treatments:

 

Misconception #1: Laser treatment is painful

Laser treatments cause very little pain and it’s manageable for most people.

 

Patients often describe the feeling during a laser procedure as a tingling sensation or the feeling of a rubber band snapping gently on the skin.

 

If you are worried about the pain, numbing cream can be applied to the skin prior to the treatment to minimise discomfort during the procedure.

 

 

 

Misconception #2: Your skin gets thinner and weaker after each laser treatment

 

This is untrue. Most lasers nowadays are non-ablative lasers used for pigments and rejuvenation.

 

Pigmentation lasers at Healthsprings do not burn off any skin layers.

 

The treatment is safe for the skin when the rights settings are used. Hence it is important to look for qualified, trained doctors.

 

Our laser treatment helps stimulate collagen production and gives you firmer skin after the treatments.

 

 

 

 

Misconception #3: One session of laser treatment will clear all pigment

 

Typically after one session, you will notice some improvement on your skin.

 

However, most of the time, a treatment plan is required for non-ablative lasers to produce satisfying results. This is a trade-off that comes with a low downtime treatment.

 

Once the treatment plan is completed, the results are usually long-lasting if the skin is well taken care of.

 

 

Misconception #4: The results of laser skin treatment is permanent

Usually, pigmented lesions or spots that have been removed will not return after your laser treatments.

 

However, there are various factors that can stimulate new hyperpigmentation e.g. exposure to UV, ageing, hormonal factors.

 

Laser pigmentation removal treatments do not prevent new hyperpigmentation from occurring. Hence, it is important to take care of your skin after the treatment with sunscreen and occasional maintenance session of laser treatment.

 

 

 

Misconception #5: My skin will be flawless and baby-like after laser treatment

Aesthetic Beauty Clinic Singapore

 

It is undoubtedly that laser skin treatment can treat a lot of different problems e.g. clear pigmentation, reduce spots and wrinkles.

 

However, not everyone can achieve flawless, baby skin after laser treatment.

 

Based on individual’s skin condition, we usually recommend a combination of different treatments e.g. skinboosters, Infini micro-needling, skin tightening treatments for well-rounded results.

Talking with your doctor before undergoing any sort of aesthetic treatment will give you peace of mind and clear knowledge of what is ahead.

Melasma: Melasma is a common pigmentation disorder affecting Asian skin. Melasma is sometimes referred to as the mask of pregnancy because it is sometimes triggered by an increase in hormones in pregnant women.
