U-Glow Laser treatment
U-Glow laser, as the name suggest uses one unique type of laser wavelength to target different skin concerns. It is able to target pigmentation, reduce pore size or stimulate collagen production.
How U-Glow Laser works?
Majority of patients who come for treatment are concerned with pigmentary issues. The first type of laser we use is pigment laser. It targets and breaks down melanin in our skin. You can also have the option of another laser to reduce sebum output and shrink enlarged pores. A third type of laser is also available to gently stimulate fibroblasts in our skin which is responsible for collagen production. Choose one of these laser to achieve brighter and firmer skin with finer pores.
How long do I see results from U-Glow laser?
This depends on various factors. We would advise an average of 4-6 sessions of monthly treatments to see significant improvement. The regular use of suitable skincare with sun protection will also augment the effects of the laser treatments done.
To find out if you are a suitable for U-Glow laser treatment, make an appointment with our doctor. We will assess your condition and suggest a customised solution for your skincare concerns.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I prepare myself for procedure?
You do not need to prepare for laser treatment. On your consultation day, come bare-faced so that we can see your skin better. It is important to apply sunblock before and after any laser procedure, so try to remember that. If you have forgotten to bring yours, we will apply sunblock for you after laser. You can also apply light makeup after that.
Is U-Glow laser treatment painful?
Contrary to popular belief, laser treatment is rather painless. You do not need numbing cream before the procedure. During the laser, you may feel a light pricking sensation on the skin. Sometimes, we will apply a hand piece which emits chilled wind to make you feel more comfortable. You will hardly feel any discomfort.
How long is the downtime after laser treatment?
It is common to experience mild redness after the laser treatment. Your skin may appear to be a little more sensitive than usual for a day or two. If you are being treated for freckles or sun age spots, you may notice the spots darken for a few days before it starts to lighten. This is normal. Otherwise, there is no downtime and you can resume work right after the treatment.
Do I need to follow up with creams after procedure?
We recommend our patients to use Arium Essentials Perfect Clear in conjunction with laser treatment for optimal results. This is a gentle lightening cream to reduce skin melanin production by inhibiting the enzyme tyrosinase. Our doctor may also prescribe hydroquinone creams as a spot treatment for stubborn pigmentation. Follow the advice of the doctor and use the cream according to directions given. If you are unsure, do not be afraid to call us for clarification.
How do you monitor my progress after procedure?
We will take serial photos of your skin throughout the treatment sessions. Hence, we are able to monitor your progress and compare outcomes. We will keep your photos secured within our medical records database.
Will weekly or more frequent laser help my pigmentation clear faster?
We do not encourage frequent laser. Our skin takes time to break down the melanin and heal in between treatment. Our doctor will be able to give your advice on how frequent you should come in for U-Glow laser.
Will the pigment return after I stop laser treatment?
It depends on your type of pigmentation and its cause. Some patients are more prone to develop pigmentary problems than others. Long term maintenance of your skin is important to prevent recurrence. We advocate a combination of lightening cream and sun protection to prevent pigment. Some patients may also continue regular laser treatment as part of their skin rejuvenation regime.
