Lite Scanner

Commonly Used For

For both sexes

How does this procedure work?

Lite Scanner is another laser apparatus from Alma lasers that uses CO2 fractional lasers to apply to areas of skin with darker pigmentation.

The laser creates random spots of ablation that cause the skin to gradually peel and after repeated sessions, the underlying lighter skin is revealed.

What can I expect after the procedure?

After the procedure, we apply a good amount of antibiotic cream and Vaseline ointment to the skin to provide a good protective barrier.

You may experience some itchiness or redness as the skin starts to peel gently. We encourage you to adhere to the application of the antibiotic creams and the Vaseline ointment daily for 5 days to reduce these mild symptoms.

How long does the procedure take?

The actual laser session only takes a few minutes. However, we apply a numbing cream to the skin for about 45 minutes to an hour before the session.

How many sessions are required?

A minimum of 6 sessions is required to see effective lightening of the skin.

More sessions may be performed for individuals with significantly darker target areas, or if they desire a greater degree of lightening.

Maximum lightening will be seen ~6 months after the start of the procedure.

Who is not suitable for this procedure?

This is a safe and gentle procedure for most individuals, except pregnant women.

Do note that during pregnancy, skin pigmentation tends to intensify, causing additional darkening in areas like the genitals and inner thighs and even the abdomen. It’s best to schedule the procedure ~6 months after delivery.

What should I prepare before the procedure?

We recommend trimming down the hair on your genital areas as much as possible to allow us proper access to apply the laser.

Individuals with Asian-type skin tone, or skin type 4 or above on the Fitzpatrick Scale to apply special preparation creams daily for at least 6 weeks prior to the laser procedure.

This is to reduce the risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which can be caused by the lasers.

Individuals with a history of genital herpes are advised to take antiviral tablets for a few days prior to the laser procedure. This is to prevent the reactivation of herpes that may cause ulcers and blisters in the areas where the laser is applied.

Are there any side effects?

Besides a little redness and itchiness post procedure, no other ill side effects are expected.

What is the cost of this procedure?

Each session costs $170 and covers the genital area specified by the patient. This may include some or all of the following:

For women

  • Labia majora (big lips of the vulva)
  • Inner thigh (palm size)
  • Perianal region (area around the anus)
  • Mons pubis (the roof/ upper portion of the pubic area)

For men

I'd spent a while trying to find a general practitioner in Singapore with some very, very mixed results (although I will admit to being a difficult patient sometimes). Dr. Jess was recommended to me when I suffered an acute condition and I can't believe how lucky I am to have found her when I did. She has that fantastic ability to be both amazingly friendly and approachable whilst still being incredibly knowledgeable, professional and focused on getting the best outcome possible for your health needs at the same time. As someone who has a background history in medical research and teaching medical students, I'm constantly impressed with the way Dr. Jess has always used both trusted, conservative methods whilst also being up to date with new techniques and the latest knowledge, and will research for answers and present it in a manageable, down-to-earth and tailored way - or recommend excellent specialists when required. I cannot recommend her highly enough, and she would be my doctor of choice no matter where I lived in Singapore. Also worth mentioning is that her staff are always very polite, friendly, competent and go out of their way to be helpful. I don't write reviews very often, but five incredibly well deserved stars.

Last week (13th Feb 2020) was my first visit to this clinic. I was very impressed and satisfied with InSync Medical Women's Clinic. Dr. Jess was very attentive and detailed in examining my situation. Her explanation was very clear and understandable. With her patience, I was able to ask lots of questions and understand my situation much better than before. (Thank you, Dr. Jess) Price wise, it is reasonable and I would HIGHLY recommend this clinic. Again, thank you!

Dr Jess is an amazing doctor with a beautiful heart. What I really love about her is that is super realistic. She does not promise rapid/fake results. She is very humble and I really like it that spent her time to talk and explain to me about my condition in detail. I have been to so many other doctors for the same. They will just talk briefly and try to push me to start the treament on the spot / nurses will start discussing on pricing.Wasted my time and money in the wrong clinic before. However, Dr Jess is just different.She is not greedy. Very helpful and high level of professionlism and empathy.And her staff Hani is super sweet too. Customer service top notch. Sometime I send message so late when i need something urgently. Hani will still reply to me patiently. I am so lucky I finally found the best doctor and her assitant for my lady needs 🙂 . I only have one regret-I didnt find them earlier.
