Freckles are found in younger people and children – typically in fairer skin types such as Caucasian skin.
Lasers work very well to remove age spots and freckles. Freckles, however, tend to recur after removal. Age spots often come together with other forms of pigmentation such as melasma, and hence, combination therapy is often required. Good news is that these can be removed with laser for cosmetic reasons.

Unlike traditional pigment lasers, Ruvy Touch Pigment Laser uses red pulses of laser energy to target epidermal pigments such as age spots and freckles with great precision.
Ruvy Touch Pigment Laser uses 660nm wavelength which is safer than 532nm for removal of epidermal pigmentation due to its lower absorption of melanin. At 660nm, it has greater selectivity of melanin rather than oxy- and deoxy-hemoglobin. This means that Ruvy Touch Pigment Laser allows vessels to remain intact even after the treatment, therefore minimising potential side effects such as PIH that could occur as a result of inflammation.
On the other hand, Shining Bright Skin Program leverages on the advanced Dual Yellow Laser to instantly brighten the face and improve the skin tone. It has become one of the most popular treatments in Singapore because of its effectiveness and minimal to no downtime after the procedure.
Relying on a copper bromide based laser technology, Dual Yellow Laser offers multi-wavelength capability to specifically treat different types of skin pigmentation including melasma and age spots.
