Treatment options for skin whitening

There are numerous treatment options for skin whitening. We shall briefly look into them in the following lines.

Dermabrasion

A specialized wire brush is used by this procedure for the purpose of exfoliating the damaged top layer of the skin. As the skin is exfoliated, the healing process gets underway and over the next few days, healthier skin replaces the removed damaged layer of the skin. At the same time, the level of collagen being produced in the deeper layers is also increased which helps the overall health of the skin.

Improved skin tone can be seen soon after the first treatment. There are some side effects associated with the treatment and several days of downtime is to be expected due to the highly invasive nature of the treatment. Topical or local anesthesia is administered to ensure that no pain is felt during the treatment. Like most similar treatments, more than a single sessions is needed in order to achieve the desired results.

Microdermabrasion

The treatment uses the same principle of exfoliating the top layer of the skin but without being nearly as invasive as dermabrasion. It works with the help of a handheld device that sprays tiny crystals on to the skin in order to remove the damaged top layer. The crystals and exfoliated skin are then sucked by a suction pump and collected into a chamber.

The treatment helps in kick starting the healing process and over the next few days, the old skin crusts away and healthier skin replaces it. The level of collagen production is also boosted which means that the skin remains firm and supple in future.

The treatment has very little side effects which are temporary in nature and there is no downtime associated with the treatment. The treatment is only mildly invasive and the factor of pain during the treatment is almost absent. In order to numb down any such sensations, topical anesthetics are applied prior to the treatment.

To achieve the desired result, several sessions of microdermabrasion are required. The complexion of the skin after each treatment improves. The exact number of sessions needed will vary in individuals.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are acidic solutions that can be applied to the skin in order to correct a number of skin conditions. They are also quite good for skin whitening. These can be easily acquired at a drugstore without a prescription. Chemical peels are available in three different strengths namely light, medium and deep peels. They all serve the same purpose but their characteristics differ somewhat.

Peels are applied to the skin in order to replace the top layer of the skin. The new skin that replaces it has a lighter skin tone. At the same time, the chemical peels help in improving the collagen levels in the skin which makes it firmer and suppler.

Depending on nature of the peels, the number of sessions needed is determined. While light and medium peels need to be applied several times to get the desired end result, deep peels are applied only since due to their highly invasive nature. While the former have little side effects and generally no downtime associated with them, the latter has a few side effects as well as a fair bit of downtime.

It is important that the peels are applied by a professional in a professional setting since an amateur can easily damage the top layers of the skin. Be sure to consult your doctor prior to getting chemical peels.
