Skin Lightening Treatment in Gurgaon

The skin loses the ability of self-repairing with increasing age, which may result in the damage and accumulation of melanin in the skin layers, and thereby, giving a darker tone to the skin. The cosmetic procedure skin lightening treatment in Gurgaon, also known as skin bleaching or skin whitening reduces the melanin pigment in the skin to give a whiter tone in complexion by lightening the dark areas of the skin. Melanin is a pigment that defines the pigmentation and thus, skin tone (or color) of any individual. People also turn towards the skin lightening method to treat freckles, spotting due to aging, acne, birthmarks, scars, and moles. While these treatments are effective for some time, it does not apply to everyone. Individuals with an existing medical condition are recommended to discuss their expectations and scenario with the dermatologist to gain knowledge and to make an informed decision.

Types of skin lightening treatment in Gurgaon

There are the majority of two types of skin lightening treatment in Gurgaon:

  • Skin lightening creams: usually a solution of corticosteroids or hydroquinone or glycolic acid. It is imperative to follow the prescribed medicine and use the product as recommended by your dermatologist. This treatment may continue for 3-4 months depending on your skin tone and damage. However, one of the most commonly observed side effects is swelling and redness along with burning sensations and itchy skin.

  • Laser treatment: a concentrated beam of light energy is used to lighten the blemishes and dark tone patches of the skin. This method removes the outer layer of the skin (epidermis), or it may also work by damaging the skin cells producing melanin. This decision is taken by a dermatologist depending on your expectations and skin type. Your skin may take approximately 1-2 weeks to recover and it will stay sensitive to the sun for at least initial 6 months.
