DPP - Difficult Pigmentation Programme

Skin Lasers

Cambridge's Difficult Pigmentation Programme (DPP) is a proprietary protocol that aims to reduce pigmentation & uneven skin tone concerns by combining therapy with bespoke skincare formulations.

What skin concerns does DPP Treat?

  • Freckles
  • Lentiges
  • Melasma
  • Pigments

What causes these problems?

Hyper-pigmentation is a common problem among our Asian population. The root of the problem comes from sun exposure and UV radiation. Genetic predisposition, drugs and hormonal changes can aggravate the situation leading to a variety of skin pigmentary changes.

For optimal treatment, a precise diagnosis must be made to determine if the pigmentary lesions are dermal or epidermal. In most cases, a combination of both types of pigmentation are present. Your cambridge doctor will first analyse your skin condition before recommending suitable treatment.

What should you expect?

Our doctors will exercise great care in order to avoid causing excessive injury and down-time, thus there is usually only slight redness over the treated areas that generally subsides within the day, although individual results may vary. The DPP protocol selectively targets pigment areas using customised settings. Post procedure, pigmentation spots will darken, develop a 'scab' and eventually fall off in a few days. Depending on individual results, repeat sessions might be needed for complete clearance.

Can Melasma be treated?

Melasma is one of the most difficult types of pigmentation and is often thought to be 'pointless' to treat. While difficult, it is certainly not impossible as long as a logical treatment plan is applied to tackle Melasma. Our DPP protocol treats Melasma using a combination of customised Dynamic Laser Therapy together with individually prescribed Cambridge RX products. Multiple sessions are recommend if patients want to further improve skin lightening.
