Skin Whitening is the process by which people reduce the melanin pigment in the skin to get a fair complexion. People with darker skin have more melanin, and the content of melanin determines the color of a person's skin. Melanin is produced by cells called melanocytes. The amount of melanin in a person's skin depends on the accumulation of genes. The production of melanin is affected by the sun, the degree of skin damage, and chemicals.
People usually use skin whitening methods to solve freckles, age spots, scars, moles, acne, birthmarks, and other problems, and people who want to have fair skin, especially those with darker skin. People use whitening or whiening products such as bleaching creams, fading creams, chemical peels, and laser treatments.
The first step in the skin whitening procedure is to arrange an appointment with the dermatologist or a cosmetologist and tell him/her which skin tone you want. To make your thoughts clearer, it is best to carry a picture of a person with the desired skin tone with you. You can also show him/her pictures so that he/she knows what you want. Skin whitening products reduce the production and concentration of melanin in the skin. Melanin is a pigment present in the skin that can discolor the skin and protect the skin from sunlight.
Skin whitening treatments can be performed through various techniques or procedures, depending on the type of skin being treated. Popular skin whitening techniques or methods include:
