Doctors will have to see the pigmentation on the lower legs to diagnose it, and confirm if suitable for pigmentation laser or pigmentation cream. There can be a wide range of diagnosis for brown pigment on the lower legs: 1) Birthmarks 2) PIH(post inflammatory pigmentation) 3) Acanthosis nigricans It will be best to see a doctor to confirm the diagnosis, and hence the cost.
What is the best treatment for pigmentation and depressed acne scars in Singapore? Do topical creams for acne scars work?
1)acne scar with crater, firstly, need to assess if the skin has healed well before a gentle subcision of the the crater scar. This is followed by a resurfacing, best by a fractional resurfacing laser. Otherwise a spot chemical peel will do well too. often multiple sessions will be needed for both laser and chemical peels. 2)pigmentation it can be many types of pigmentation, from freckles to Post-inflammatory pigmentation(PIH) to moles. pigment laser work well for freckles, but there is down time for 3-5days. PIH can be treated with nonablative laser and creams.
Dermal Fillers are categorized into the component of the fillers like hyaluronic acid(juvederm/restylane) which last for 6months -18months, or calcium hydroxylapatite(radiesse) or poly-L-lactic acid(sculptra) which last up to 2 years. I used juvederm volbella for the lips. cost about $800. Choose a doctor who has experience with lips fillers.
