What is Skin Lightening Treatment?
Skin lightening treatment can be any procedure meant to whiten the skin tone.
It is typically a depigmentation procedure whereby the concentration of a dark pigment, called ‘melanin’, in the skin is reduced to lighten the skin color. There are a number of ways through which this can be done. They can include using bleaching creams, getting whitening injections, treatments like chemical peels, dermabrasion and laser skin treatments.
Many skin whitening treatments only target small patches. This can result in an uneven skin tone; such as having a face color lighter than the neck, or legs a tad bit darker than the arms. It is thus best to opt for melanin reduction throughout the body.
How is Skin Lightening done?
The procedure of skin lightening treatment depends on the type of treatment you have opted for.
You will be required to visit a qualified surgeon who will determine the amount of melanin that has to be reduced to be able to achieve your desired skin tone. Depending on the amount of melanin desired to be reduced, your surgeon will suggest an appropriate skin whitening treatment.
Most of the skin whitening treatments are simple procedures that don’t require any downtime. You can drop into your surgeon’s clinic even during a lunch break and get done with the whitening procedure done in about an hour or two. Some treatments may cause temporary discomfort and redness, but that can be easily covered with make-up.
Outcome of Skin Lightening Treatment
The most common outcome of a skin lightening treatment is, of course, a whiter skin tone. However, a skin lightening treatment can also bring about the following benefits:
- Improved skin texture
- Reduced skin blemishes
- Reduced wrinkles
- Glowing skin
- Reduction in age-related and red spots
Risks of Skin Lightening Treatment
No cosmetic surgery comes free of any risks and side effects and same goes true for skin lightening treatments. Though most of these treatments are safe, they do sometimes lead to undesired side effects. They can include:
- Swelling and redness of the skin
- Darker skin tone leading to hyperpigmentation
- Skin crusting
- Sensitivity to sunlight
How much Skin Lightening costs?
The cost of a skin whitening treatment again depends on the type of procedure your surgeon will be using and the amount of melanin that has to be reduced. Typically, a full body whitening treatment can be anywhere around $3,000; whereas a localized skin whitening treatment can range between $500 and $1.500. This, however, is a rough estimate and only a surgeon will be able to determine the exact cost of your treatment.
