BAZAAR Spa Awards 2016 Best Skin Per­fect­ing Pro­gramme DOUBLO Un­der­stand your skin. Bright­en­ing the skin in­volves mak­ing the skin health­ier in var­i­ous as­pects—not just whiten­ing. In or­der to make the skin a healthy and even colour, there must be good hy­dra­tion and no brown or red dis­coloura­tion. Grey mat­ter. Brown spots come from pig­men­ta­tion which can be treated with lasers and lightening prod­ucts, while red ar­eas come from skin sen­si­tiv­ity due to the age­ing process, dis­rup­tion in bar­rier func­tion, ge­netic fac­tors, or var­i­ous skin dis­or­ders. The glow. The fu­ture of skin bright­en­ing is still a com­plex area be­cause of the fac­tors in­volved, but we should get bet­ter at it as more tools and prod­ucts which are safer, more ef­fec­tive, and have longer-last­ing re­sults be­come avail­able. What’s next. The lat­est lasers to be­come avail­able in the mar­ket boast an ex­tremely short pi­cosec­ond burst of ex­po­sure time. This can po­ten­tially make them safer and more ef­fec­tive at re­mov­ing tat­toos and other be­nign pig­mented le­sions in the skin. Lasers and light­based de­vices have al­ways been use­ful in the mod­u­lat­ing the pro­duc­tion of pig­men­ta­tion in the skin. In the fu­ture, we are def­i­nitely go­ing to see more ad­vanced ver­sions of these de­vices. Dr at . Hew Yin Ke
