Skin Whitening Treatment Options
Many skin whitening treatment options can help you with fair and glowing skin. These options work mostly to improve the overall health of the skin and inhibit the production of melanin, the pigment whose overproduction causes a darker skin tone. Here are the most commonly used and highly effective skin whitening treatment options:
Many types of topical creams exist to whiten the skin tone. These are generally the first treatment options which mainly focus on inhibiting the production of melanin from lightening the shade of the skin. However, depending on your needs, your dermatologist may prescribe the topical treatment that best fits you.
Most of these tropical creams contain Azelaic acid, Kojic acid, and Hydroquinone as their active ingredients. Never self-prescribe these creams, since only a doctor can best assess which cream suits your skin type the best. However, the application of the topical creams is considered to be a long term solution, and it takes time for the tone of the skin to improve.
Chemical peels are solutions in different strength and can be acquired from most drugstores without a prescription for application on the skin to correct various skin problems. They are applied to resurface the damaged top layer as well as to whiten the skin. When the skin gets removed, and new skin replaces it, the tone of the skin is lighter than before. It often helps in boosting the collagen production levels in the skin.
Depending upon the strength of the peels, these chemical peels may be applied several times (light and mild peels) or may just be used only once (deep peels). It involves certain mild side effects and downtime varies with the strength of the peels as well. It would be wise to leave the application of the peels to the experts to avoid any accidental skin damage.
Dermabrasion treatment uses a specialized wire brush to exfoliate the top layer of the skin. The healing process starts right away after the removal of top layers of the skin, and within a few days, healthier skin replaces the removed one. The appearance of the skin is lighter in color, and the improved collagen production allows the skin to be firmer than before.
As it is a highly invasive procedure, there is some pain involved in the treatment. However, your surgeon may administer topical anesthetics or local anesthesia to counter the pain. Be sure to have some time to rest after undergoing the procedure. It may also need several sessions to achieve the desired outcomes.
Microdermabrasion is a mildly invasive treatment option that uses tiny crystals for exfoliating the top layer of the skin. The crystals are sprayed onto the area that has to be treated with the help of a handheld device. Then, the exfoliated skin and crystals are gathered into a chamber using a suction pump.
As the healing process starts, the new skin layer replaces the exfoliated skin in a few days. It has a lighter skin shade with better overall health. It is also a supplier of more collagen. However, you need to consider a few sessions to achieve the desired skin tone.
In laser treatment or laser peel or lasabrasion, your skin is exposed to a concentrated beam of light to destroy skin cells in different layers. It triggers the fairer and healthier skin cell growth. The regenerated skin is flawlessly toned and is generally for dark skin.
