Melasma and Pigmentation Disorders Treatment

Melasma and Pigmentation Disorders Treatment

70% of Vietnamese women experience some form of melasma, pigmentation, and freckle problems because they live in extreme climatic conditions and strong sunlight. Understanding this, Grace Skincare Clinic and Dr. Hun Kim Thao, Key Opinion Leader in Vietnam for Alma Lasers Israel, provide comprehensive melasma and pigmentation solutions to help clients regain even pigmentation and consistent skin tone.

Alma Q- the world’s most powerful Q switched laser

It is now in Vietnam for the first time, and available only at Grace Skincare Clinic. The Alma Q is considered to be the new gold standard and a “savior” for customers who suffer from pigmentation disorders and melasma problems in particular. Alma Lasers technology has been in the United States and Europe for over 20 years and it is USA FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and/or European Union CE registered and approved.

Alma-Q is a combination of three sophisticated laser technologies that provide optimal therapeutic results while maintaining the highest safety standard. They are a Q-switched Nd YAG laser, Long Pulsed Nd YAG laser & Quasi-long pulsed Nd YAG laser. These technologies are designed to treat a variety of skin impurities caused by aging, pigmentation, or spider veins.

The high-power Q-switched Nd YAG laser (Nd: YAG 1064nm and KTP 532 )

This is the perfect medical technology bringing outstanding clinical results in removing natural or artificial pigmentation (such as tattoo ink). It also minimizes any damages to the surrounding tissues and has technologies designed to create a pain-free experience.

The benefit of enhanced depth control

With extraordinary short pulse length and high energy levels (nanoseconds), the Alma-Q brings great clinical results in treating pigmented lesions at different depths. This is especially true for melasma. The high-power Q-switched Nd YAG 1064nm is used to treat deep pigmented lesions, while the 532nm wavelength is used to treat lesions on the skin surface.

Client safety and comfort comes first

The Alma-Q introduces an energy transfer solution with a single pulse and double pulse to provide high effectiveness and maximize safety. With its double-pulse technology, it disperses the laser energy into 2 consecutive pulses. This reduces peak power yet delivers maximum energy of up to 2j/pulse. The benefit is that this radically reduces the potential for damage to surrounding tissue, prevents scarring, and reduces negative pigmentation effects that are seen from less efficient laser systems currently used in Vietnam.

The Alma Q technology along with conservative treatment protocols ensures a very comfortable and PAIN-FREE client experience. The flat-top beam innovation enables energy to be delivered evenly on the skin surface without damaging the epidermis. Both the single and double pulse are available in both 1064nm and 532nm wavelengths, to deliver the best clinical results.

Fractional non-ablative Q-switched handpiece

Is a fractional non-ablative form of laser, using a high-power Q-switched laser to treat skin aging, wrinkles, help tighten and lighten the skin. A feature of Alma-Q is the ability to adjust various depths while still allows a combination of deep and superficial treatment approaches as needed for the treatment process. The deep effect of high energy to the epidermis stimulates the formation of collagen n- especially collagen type 3 – from deep beneath the dermis. It does so without damaging the epidermis and with no or minimal skin irritation. This means there is no need for recovery time.

Quasi-Long Pulsed Nd: YAG Laser

This is the form of laser that generates pulses within 400 microseconds width, at a repetition rate of up to 5Hz for skin rejuvenation and microvascular (spider veins) treatments. Quasi-Long Pulse brings safe results and sub-dermal heating impacts to the dermis. It stimulates new collagen formation and tightens the skin structure. Simultaneously, the extraordinary short pulses generated are ideal for the treatment of small-sized capillaries and spider veins.

Long-Pulsed Nd: YAG Laser: With the greatest advantage from the 1064nm wavelength, Alma-Q also offers the Long-Pulsed Nd: YAG laser for problems related to the blood vessels, such as vascular malformations or deep veins. The extended duration of the long-pulsed 1064nm laser generates enough energy and depth to impact the deep lesions which cannot be reached with short wavelengths.

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.

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!
