Treatment Options

There are numerous skin whitening options that can be used in order to lighten the skin tone. We shall discuss the main ones in the following lines.

Dermabrasion

Dermabrasion works by exfoliating the top layer of the skin. For this purpose, it brings to use a specialized wire brush. As the skin is exfoliated, the healing process starts immediately and healthier skin starts replacing the replaced damaged skin. At the same time, the level of collagen in the skin also improves which allows the skin to be supple and firm.

It is a highly invasive treatment and there is a fair bit of downtime associated with the procedure. To numb down the pain and discomfort, topical or local anesthesia may be administered. Like most similar treatments, multiple sessions are needed to achieve the desired results. Some results can be seen soon after the first treatment.

Microdermabrasion

It is a treatment that works with the help of a handheld device which sprays tiny crystals onto the skin for the purpose of exfoliating the top layer of the skin. The crystals and exfoliated skin are then sucked into a chamber with the help of a suction pump. As the skin is exfoliated, the healing process is started and over the next few days, healthier skin replaces the damaged skin. The level of collagen production also gets a boost which helps the skin in firming up as well.

Improvement in the complexion can be seen after the first treatment session. However, multiple sessions are needed to achieve the desired results. The side effects with the treatment are minor and temporary and there is no downtime associated with it. Generally five to six sessions are enough to achieve the desired skin whitening outcome though the exact number can vary in individuals.

Chemical Peels

These are acidic solutions available in drug stores that replace the top layer of the skin in order to resurface it and improve the skin tone as well as correct other imperfections in the skin. These are available in different strengths and are used as per the needs of the given individual.

Once they are applied, they resurface the top layer of the skin and healthier skin replaces it in some time. It also helps the skin in firming up by improving the level of collagen. A few applications are enough to achieve the desired results.

The exact number of applications is determined in each individual case. Light and mild peels need to be applied several times to get the desired results. They have very little side effects and generally no downtime. However, deep peels are applied only once and have a fair bit of downtime associated with them. Be sure that the peels are applied by a professional since trying them at home yourself adds to the risk of burning the skin.
