A lot of us aspire to get a skin tone lighter and whiter than the one we’re born with. In a skin whitening treatment, we try and reduce the content of melanin in the skin. Melanin is the agent / pigment that gives a person his or her skin colour.
What are the various Skin lightening treatments in Bangalore?
Well, there are pharmacological treatment options as well as non-pharmacoloigcal ones.
When it comes to medication, there are depigmenting creams containing hydroquinone, kojic acid and glutathione. These creams are advisable for treating smaller dark patches not for application on the entire body.
Additionally, we have cosmetic advancements to satiate our need for a lighter fairer skin.
There is Chemical Peel.
Chemical Peels with glycolic acid, lactic acid, mandelic acid can be applied on the affected / desired area. These peels can be used standalone or in combination, as advised by your dermatologist.
Benefits of a chemical peel are multifold. Besides helping with a lighter skin tone, peels help smooth fine lines and wrinkles. It helps remove the dead skin cells. It not only helps reduce and dry out active acne but also helps reduce acne scars.

There is Micro-Needling Radiofrequency.
Micro-Needling Radiofrequency (RF) is also known as collagen induction therapy. It is a natural healing process. In this treatment, micro needles are used to make micro perforations on the skin and radio frequency energy is discharged under the skin. This energy triggers collagen production. And this newly formed collagen in turn heals the perforated skin. In this process all skin damage due to sun exposure, pigmentation, etc. is restored. This treatment also helps in one’s fight with aging skin.
We also offer Q-Switch ND:YAG LASER.
The beauty of this treatment is that LASER can penetrate deep into the skin without injuring the top layer of the skin. In this method, high energy light is emitted into the affected area. This helps collagen production which helps generation of new skin cells to replace the old ones. This treatment is extensively used to help lighten the skin tone. It not only results in a fairer skin but also gives a smoother one.
NOTE: Neither of the above treatments are advisable to expecting or breastfeeding mothers.
