Skin Whitening Treatment
In different cultures around the world, there are varying standards of beauty. These standards have evolved over thousands of years. One of the common symbols of beauty in most cultures is a lighter skin tone. In some parts of the world, it can help in achieving a greater social status.Many of those with darker tinge prefer to lighten their skin’s appearance.
For this purpose, there are number of treatments that are available which are highly effective. However, not all treatments are equally effective for everyone and some suit a given person more than others. A doctor can best guide you on which treatment should work the best for you. Let’s take a closer look at these treatments.
How to prepare for skin whitening?
•You may be recommended some skin lightening ointment to be used for 3-4 weeks before laser skin whitening. Use it as prescribed
•Some doctors also recommend Retin-A ointment to help prepare skin for laser treatment. Use it as told by your practitioner
•Stop using Retin-A one week before treatment, or continue only if allowed by the doctor
•Quit smoking and avoid alcoholic beverages for at least a week prior to skin whitening treatment
•If you are taking any blood thinning medication, such as such as ibuprofen, aspirin, beta blockers or Vitamin E supplements, discuss with your physician
•A good night’s sleep before the procedure is essential
•Cleanse your face thoroughly before coming for treatment
Topical creams are recommended by many doctors for skin lightening. They work by inhibiting the melanin production. Our dermatologists recommend best suitable topical medication depending on your skin typefor this purpose but below given ingredients are responsible for making skin tone lighter. The common ingredients in these creams are usually Kojic acid, Hydroqiunone and Azelaic acid.
These topical creams need to be applied for a long period of time to get the desired results and to maintain them. They generally do not have severe side effects but can cause allergies. Not all productios will suit everyone and never use a topical cream on the basis of hearsay.
Dermabrasion is another effective treatment for SKIN WHITENING . The treatment is pretty invasive in nature as it uses a specialized wire brush to exfoliate the damaged top layer of the skin. The new skin that is formed in its place is healthier will a lighter tone. Collagen levels are also boosted and skin gets firmer.
Since the treatment is performed under topical or local anesthesia, no pain is felt. There are some side effects and a few days of downtime as well so be sure to have time available. With a few repeats of the treatment, fantastic results can be had.
Microdermabrasion is a highly effective treatment to make your skin complexion lighter. The minimally invasive treatment uses a handheld device to spray tiny crystals on to the skin for the purpose of exfoliating it. Healthier skin is formed in place of damaged one and skin shade of the skin is achieved. The level of collagen in the skin also gets a bump making it suppler.
The treatment is performed under topical anesthesia to numb down any discomfort. The side effects are pretty mild and there is no downtime whatsoever. Microdermabrasion needs to be repeated a few times to ensure that the intended outcome is achieved.
Chemical peels also known as derma peels, is a procedure in which a chemical solution is applied on the skin that dissolves the skin and peel it off. This way the outer damaged layer of skin is removed and new healthier and lighter skin appears after complete healing. It also builds up the collagen level in the skin to make it healthier. The peels are available in different strengths including superficial peels, medium peels and deep peels.
During healing, skin may become red, flaky and blistered but this persists for temporary time. The treatment is carried out under topical or local anesthesia so that pain is not felt. Side effects and downtime vary with the strength of the peels. The common ingredients in these peels include Glycolic Acid, Beta Hydroxy Acid and Trichloratic Acid (TCA).
Superficial and medium peels need to be applied multiple times while deep peels are a onetime treatment due to their severe nature. While it is quite tempting to apply the peels yourself, it is a job best left to professionals to avoid accidental burning of top layer of the skin.
Laser Skin Whitening:
The most demanded way for skin whitening in Dubai and other parts of UAE is through lasers. We use Q-switched NDYAG Laser and CANDELA GENTLEMAX LASER for treating skin pigmentation and to even out overall skin tone.
Post-procedure care and recovery tips:
•Expect your skin to be slight sour and itchy after laser treatment
•Use cold compresses to relieve discomfort and symptoms such as redness and swelling
•Do not expose treated areas to direct sunlight for 2-3 months after every laser session
•Crusting and scabbing is rare, but if it happens, do not pick or scratch at the scab, or you may end up with permanent scarring
•Moisturize treated areas 3 to 4 times a day
•Do not massage treatment site for at least two weeks
