Things To Need To Know Before Having Skin Whitening

Markets are flooded with beauty products that claim skin whitening. With new technology, you can whiten your skin with non-surgical treatments like skin whitening by peel (chemical peel). Your skin color tone may be due to sun damage, aging or acne scars. Before trying to lighten your skin, you should learn about the advantages and risks of skin lightening treatments.

What causes your skin to have dark spots?

To understand why you have dark spots, you must first understand what makes your skin color the way it is. A pigment called melanin determines your skin color. The more melanin produced the darker skin tone you have. Everybody is born with a particular amount of melanocytes but there are many factors that affect the amount of melanin produced.

Sun is one of the factors. When you are in contact with the sun, melanin is responsible for blocking the UV rays to protect your skin. The more your skin is exposed to the sun, the more melanin is produced to protect your skin. This is why your skin gets darker when you are exposed to sun for longer. One should always protect your skin by applying a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.

Another factor is hormonal changes. When you are taking birth control pills or pregnant, you have increased the activity of estrogen. Estrogen can affect the thickness of the skin as well as wrinkle formation; skin moisture makes your skin more vulnerable to sun damage. These dark spots that are affected by estrogen are called melasma.

How do skin lightening treatments work?

Skin lightening treatments generally work by reducing the concentration of melanin in your skin. These treatments may not prove enduring results and you have to opt for continuous treatments. There are many chemicals found in whitening products and medicated creams that can limit the production of melanin and cause your skin to peel. Similarly, in skin whitening by chemical peel with the help of skin-friendly chemical the top layer of your skin is peeled which reveals the next fairer skin making you look fairer.

What is Laser Toning?

The new collagen in the dermis will make your skin look fuller and tighter, and it will change the way your skin makes the melanin that is responsible for uneven coloration.

Does Laser Toning Hurts?

No! You might experience a tingling sensation or a sensation of heat due to laser, but surely no pain. It doesn’t actually damages the top layer of skin; it doesn’t cut, remove or burn your top layer of skin, but works through and under it, so it is pain free.

Benefits of Laser Toning

Laser toning won’t only treat your melasma, but it improves the overall appearance and texture of your skin. It promotes sub-dermal collages and improves your skin’s texture and tone along with its coloration.
