What is Skin Lightening Treatment?Skin lightening treatment refers to all those techniques that are meant to whiten the color of skin. It is essentially a depigmentation process in which the concentration of melanin (a dark pigment found in the skin) is reduced to give the skin a brighter color tone. This can be achieved through a number of ways, such as through whitening creams, topical lotions, whitening injections, treatments like dermabrasion, chemical peels and laser skin whitening. Most skin whitening treatments only target small areas; that is they’ll only whiten the area where they’re applied. This can result in an uneven skin tone. For this reason, experts suggest you opt for treatments that will reduce the concentration of melanin throughout the boy. A laser skin whitening treatment, thus, may be your best option.
What Procedures are Available?A brighter skin tone can be achieved through a number of techniques. Dubai Cosmetic Surgery specializes in the following. Laser Skin Whitening: Laser Skin Whitening works by releasing high-energy laser light on the skin, thereby destroying dark skin cells and generating new cells to replace the old ones. Some lasers will even penetrate deep into the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and vital proteins essential for healthy and glowing skin. Hydroquinone Treatment: Hydroquinone is a skin bleaching agent that stops melanin production and breaks down the pigment cells. It usually comes in the form of a cream and is directly applied over the affected area. In most cases, the results begin to become within 4 weeks of the treatment. Chemical Peels: Chemical Peeling is an exfoliating technique that peels off the outer layers of the skin to give way to a fresher layer from beneath. It involves applying a specialized chemical solution to the skin which peels of the outer skin, layer by layer. This also helps get rid of issues like scars, wrinkles and fine lines. Dermabrasion: This is a technique that drags a small rotating device with sharp edges over the surface of the skin. The sharp edges scrape off the top layers of the skin, creates tiny cuts in it and causes bleeding. The body counters this effect by encouraging the growth of new skin cells which are fresher and brighter.
What to Expect After the Treatment?Obviously, a whiter skin tone. However, the treatment can bring about added benefits which can further enhance your appearance.
