effective treatment for uneven skin color and spots?

Postby lucyinthesky » Fri, 03 Oct 2014 3:59 pm

Can anyone tell me which medical procedure is reliable in correcting uneven skin color and pimple scars? creams aren't really cutting it the way that I would have wanted it. big event to attend in five mos...i want to look as flawless as i can :)

laser downtime is unpredictable.

fastest is chemical peel.
otherwise microdermabrasion with strong vit c

I heard about crystal tomato supplements that helps with this as I saw a review on another thread about helping in even skin tone. Its recommended by dermatologist for people with skin problems (actually those that went to do face laser treatments but it didn't heal properly) and my doctor recommend it to me for whitening. But its expensive! 180 bucks I think, only sold at aesthetics clinics. you can google

I looked for this but price is very different where I called. Some places 200+ and some less than 150. I am worried some might be fake :-o :-o Do you know the best place to get this product?

Are there a lot of price variations for similar products?

Not familiar with this market, whether the segment is generally stable and product cycles. Singapore is a small market; If there is no price wars, discrepancies near 40% might certainly be due to fakes, other possible causes might be clearing outdated inventory, parallel/reverse imports, or factory leakage

Hello Alexeyy. Thank you for your reply. I am still trying to learn more about local products, so don't know many background. The over-the-counter skin brightening / whitening products like Hakubi or Oxithione are less expensive, so price range is $10-20 difference maybe. High end ones like Evanessence also have more stable prices. I also found some places who import trendy skin treatments like White Veil or Cle de Peau, but these are also very costly.

isn't chemical peel too aggressive from the point of view that we are in Singapore and it's extremely strong sun here?

I recommend fractional laser skin rejuvenation, spectra laser peel and glycolic acid or jessner peel. There is no quick solution. Any quick solution will have significant downtime. If you want to even out you skin tone, I suggest spectra peel. If you want to target your acne scar, I suggest fraction laser skin rejuvenation. Both can be combined with glycolic acid peel. Jessner peel can even out skin tone and temporarily reduced your acne scar.
Again I must emphasize, laser treatments need many sessions to see significant improvement. If anyone offers you immediate improvement, there will be significant downtime or high risk of complications.
