Hyperpigmentation treatment by laser at Grace Skincare Clinic

As technology keeps thriving, medical aesthetic devices are also getting more developed to become more accurate and effective. Therefore, it is expected laser technology for cosmetic purposes to be increasingly popular, especially as a treatment for hyperpigmentation and age indications.

According to dermatologist Hun Kim Thao, CK1 from Grace Skincare Clinic, laser technology can be applied in multiple cosmetic treatments, ranging from melasma, brown spots, wrinkles to hair removal. It is believed that laser technology is highly effective while remaining safe.

Lasers in the co-smetic and aesthetic industry

At the moment, there are many different laser technologies and types of laser on the market for different purposes.

However, at Grace Skincare Clinic, grade CK1 dermatologist Hun Kim Thao chooses Alma Q and Alma Beauty Rejuve as her preferred technologies for all laser treatments.  Developed and perfected by Alma Laser, the world-renown cosmetic and aesthetic solutions provider, Alma Q and Alma Beauty Rejuve are FDA and CE-approved state-of-the-art technologies.

Treating hyperpigmentation with Q-Switched Laser technology

Q-Switched Laser uses two wavelengths, 1064 nm fractures and neutralizes the melanin pigment under the skin surface while 532 nm handles melanin on the surface of the skin. This technology helps remove hyperpigmentation effectively, including skin issues such as melasma, freckles, dullness, or brown spots.

| Among the many skin problems during pregnancy are melasma, freckles, or skin discoloration. Hyperpigmentation during pregnancy is partially caused by the sun and the abnormal rise of hormones during pregnancy.

Skin rejuvenation using Quasi-Long Pulsed Nd: YAG Laser (QLP) technology

This technology stimulates the deeper dermis, or skin layer, with the right amount of heat to boost the collagen reproduction process, hence improve the skin tissue structure. After one treatment using QLP technology, you will notice improved elasticity and evenness in skin texture as well as more youthful and healthy-looking skin.

Tattoo removal using Q-switched Nd: YAG Laser

In tattoo removal procedures, tattoo ink is treated as an artificial pigment. The laser used in tattoo removal procedures must have wavelengths that are compatible with the ink colors so that it can effectively neutralize different pigments.

Q-switched Nd: YAG Laser technology using 2 different wavelengths: 1046 nm with high intensity to neutralize darker pigments, and 532 nm is better for neutralizing lighter pigments such as red, blue, and green. Alma Q laser safely fractures the pigment particles without scarring.

Hair removal using Alma Beauty Rejuve

Dye-PL technology helps the skin look younger, healthier and refines the pores. AFT technology with a 650-950 nm wavelength removes unwanted hair effectively. By combining the 2 exclusive technologies with health-friendly light pulses, Alma Beauty Rejuve is considered “the miraculous machine” at the moment for hair removal and skin rejuvenation treatments and is used in more than 5,000 clinics worldwide.

Above is just a fraction of what laser technology can contribute to the cosmetic and aesthetic industry. However, to get the desired result, your dermatologist has to combine various methods with the right laser treatment. You are best to reach out to a reputable dermatology clinic with qualified dermatologists and medical devices to ensure a safe and effective laser treatment.

“Laser technologies such as Laser Alma-Q & Alma Beauty Rejuve are truly magical, they can multipurpose so well without posing harms to the patients”, said dermatologist Hun Kim Thao, grade CK1, who is the chief medical director at Grace Skincare Clinic.

Thanks to our experienced medical staff and state of the art medical devices, Grace Skincare Clinic has been increasingly trusted by customers with service packages such as:

Alma Q and Alma Beauty Rejuve laser technologies are highly effective non-invasive treatment methods that are the most accurate and safest laser treatments at the moment. After each session, the patient does not need to recover for a long time.

What do dermatologists at Grace Skincare Clinic say about laser treatments?

Safe and efficient

As laser treatments are gaining popularity, there are countless laser devices and laser technologies available on the market at the moment that anyone can obtain. If you have decided to treat your skin issues such as hyperpigmentation or aging with lasers, you are best to choose the more reputable clinics with FDA and CE-approved devices. Most importantly, the dermatologist who prescribes and performs the procedure must be experienced with medical laser devices.

Performed by an experienced dermatologist

The procedure performer needs to be skilled in operating cosmetic laser devices to guarantee their safety and success. At Grace Skincare Clinic, all of our experienced and dermatologists need to go through additional specialized training provided by Alma Lasers, including dermatologist Hun Kim Thao, grade CK1. After the training, she has also become the first representative dermatologist of Alma Lasers in Viet Nam.

Skincare routine for hyperpigmentation

To further enhance the effectiveness of the brown spots and hyperpigmentation treatment, dermatologists at Grace Skincare Clinic often combine laser therapy with other facial care methods. This combination therapy boosts the collagen reproduction process that occurs naturally in our skin.

vitamin C helps hyperpigmentation treatment
Vitamin C as a skincare method for youthful-looking skin

The treatment methods that are currently generating lighter pigmentation for our clients at Grace Skincare Clinic are vitamin C electrophoresis and collagen electrophoresis:

Vitamin C electrophoresis

Vitamin C is widely known as an antioxidant that helps prevent free radicals from oxidizing the skin, causing dullness or wrinkles. It also restricts the melanin production in the skin, therefore making our skin brighter and more youthful-looking.

Vitamin C electrophoresis is a method of delivering vitamin C particles beyond the skin surface and raising its absorption ability up to 97%. This method is superior to most conventional oral or topical treatments. At Grace Skincare Clinic, vitamin C electrophoresis is recommended for:

  • Anti-aging and pore refining effects
  • Skin brightening, improving skin texture and discoloration such as melasma or acne scar, sun damage recovery
  • Sebum control
  • Enhancing skin elasticity
  • Supplementing other treatments for hyperpigmentation and aging as prescribed by the dermatologist.

Suncare products

Among many types of sun care products on the market, physical sunscreens which contain zinc oxide or titanium dioxide are most effective for blocking ultraviolet rays and preventing hyperpigmentation. Therefore, dermatologists at Grace Skincare Clinic always suggest our customers apply sun care products on a daily basis to best protect the skin.

This is especially important after each laser treatment when the skin is more vulnerable when it is recommended to reapply sunscreen after every 2 hours to limit the development of hyperpigmentation as well as wrinkles and other sun damage.

0-09-2019 "I would love to thank Dr. Hun Kim Thao and her amazing staffs for helping me through a skin improving journey over an almost year while I was staying in HCM. I received acne facial and peel every other week and the service was superb! Each procedure was well explained and Dr.Thao was very attentive. I loved her holistic way of approach to improve patient's skin. Not only she prescribed very effective acne gel but also shared great tips such as reducing the amount of simple carb intake, cutting down sugar, and most importantly highlighting the importance of getting enough sleep. She even recommended a well known doctor in town who could help me with my sleeping problem. In addition, the price was very reasonable and I was very happy with all the service I got from Grace Skin Clinic. Oh Dr. Thao even asked her staff to make me a cup of tea one day as she she thought I looked overly exhausted. I was very moved. How warm hearted she is! I will definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to check up their skin and improve their skin. Amazing place!"

Youngjoo Shin – Expat living in HCM 

This place is amazing; they help me improve my terrible skin condition which had affected my identity, and my confidence for many years. I have been visiting Grace Clinic during summer time for the past two years, and every time I am here, they create a different program in order to fit my skin condition and my limited time. Furthermore, people from Grace Clinic always greet me with warm hearts. They once invited me to have boba tea with them which made me no longer feel like a customer but a friend which it has created a friendship overtime. I cannot stress how highly I would recommend this place. Again, they are amazing and very professional. There is one thing, you can do walk-in just fine but it would be better if you schedule the appointment so they can prepare and create the best service for you.

An Nguyen – HCMC University Student (Overseas)

I absolutely love the ladies of Grace Skincare. I was staying in Saigon for 6 months and came here with acne and a congested skin from my travels. So happy I found them! Their prices are reasonable compared to other “expat” clinic that I went to. I bought the 10 facial package for a really good price and am really happy with the result of my skin after following all of their consultations. Acne has cleared up and now we’re focusing on my other skin concerns such as dark spots and hyperpigmentation. I highly recommend this clinic. They truly want you to walk out with skin you feel confident in. I’m going to miss this place and the ladies I got to connect with during my time here.   Amazing results · Expert facials · Great deals · Professional products ·Licensed skin care professional · Experienced skin care professionals

Deanna Hong – HCMC, Yoga Instructor

Hey guys it’s been 3 weeks since we came for our treatment. I can honestly say it’s the best I have had done.  Andrew and I look fresh without being overdone. We both had people say how refreshed we look after our holiday. Honestly they wouldn’t be saying that if they knew how much beer and yummy Vietnamese food we consumed when we were there. I can honestly say Andrew and I will be back. And I am telling all my friends how fantastic you guys are and how professional the consultation was. I have yet to find someone in Australia who is so thorough. Thank you, Kylie

Ms Kylie, HCMC, tourist

I had a acne treatment here last month and now it's improved a lot. I must say that this place is very professional, modern equipment, especially the thoughtful doctor! I'm impressed!  

Ms Nana, HCMC, tourist

Grace Skincare Clinic has a great and friendly service and that have a centrally located clinic. I highly recommend them!

Alexis Linh Ly, HCMC- Business Owner

The owners are wonderful people. I had a good experience and can sincerely and highly recommend everything about Grace Skincare Clinic!

Sandra Menhart – New York, NY, Visiting Profesor

I was so embarrassed with the scars and pigmentation marks on my face. These are from old sports injuries and harsh products on my legs from childhood accidents. I am fed up with using so much concealer makeup on my face and am never able to wear a skirt with confidence. I heard about the Grace Skincare Clinic pigmentation lightening treatment from a friend.  I took 6 treatments & used skincare product as Dr. Thao  instructed  and now my skin is beautiful and permanently clear. It was worth every penny.

Laura May

as Tet is coming, I highly recommend this place for a weekend retreat, skin detoxing or even an urgent package to soothe and smooth your skin. I got back my healthy skin after just 02 week following the instruction of Dr Thao Hun and it cost me 200,000 for medical consultation fee only. Wonderful!
