Skin Lightening

Are you sick and tired of the advertising hype about skin lightening products that are overpriced and under-deliver? Beauty product manufacturers are forever experimenting and trying to introduce new skin lightening creams and lotions in the market. But before going for any product or treatment always consult a dermatologist as these can be dangerous too.

The discoloration of the skin can range from mild shade or darkening can go to severe leaving someone with skin that is almost entirely two-toned .The other thing is that this can happen on any part of the body including the face which can have a profound effect on a person’s self confidence.
Many treatments use a combination of topical lotions or gels along with a sunscreen. Depending on how the skin responds to these treatments, chemical peels — and lasers may be used.
The treatment of dyspigmentation with laser techniques is a fast-growing field.
Fractional photothermolysis is a recent development in laser technology. It is approved by the US FDA for the treatment of dyspigmentation .It works by thermal damage to microscopic zones of the epidermis and dermis. With a single treatment, an estimated 15-20% of the skin undergoes laser resurfacing, and the surrounding normal skin is postulated to help in the healing process. Based on the fraction of skin that experiences thermal damage, skin will require less healing ("downtime") between treatments.
