What is the treatment ?

Skin lightening also called as skin whitening, is the procedure by which the melanin pigment present in the skin is reduced to give the person a fairer look. The quantity of melanin is generally more in people with a dark complexion and the skin's color is determined by the amount of melanin present in the skin, which is a genetic process. Melanin production can also be influenced by the extent of damaged skin, exposure to the sun and exposure to chemicals.

Different types of laser treatments can be used for skin lightening procedure. This includes Q-switched Laser and Nd YAG q Switch Laser. The most effective one is the Nd YAG q Laser that gives best results. This is a nanosecond laser that penetrates deeply into the skin and damages the melanin present which as a result, helps to get lighter and fairer skin. Nd YAG laser is a US-FDA approved laser and gives completely safe and painless results. This method is used to treat highly pigmented skin and also removes tan to give a glowing and even skin tone. The laser method works by sending high energy rays deep into the skin on the affected areas and reducing the number of unwanted cells. These rays trigger the formation of new radiant cells by replacing the damaged ones, thereby, creating a new and healthy skin.
