Skin Lightening facial
In contrast to skin whitening, “skin lightening” has a positive function other than achieving a lighter complexion. In order to understand what skin lightening actually is we first need to understand what hyperpigmentation is.
What is Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition that refers to any darkening of the skin. Dark patches form usually on the face and hands or other areas that are commonly exposed to the sun. This darkening of the skin occurs when an excess of melanin, which is a brown pigment that gives our skin its color, forms deposits in our skin. Although hyperpigmentation is harmless many people are uncomfortable with the way it makes them look.
How Skin Lightening Works?
The goal of skin lightening is not to bleach your skin, but to fade out unwanted blemishes by inhibiting melanin, which gives your skin its color. During the Skin Lightening facial, we use different technologies and products adapted to your skin type.
What skin issues does it target?
Skin Lightening can be used for a variety of issues:
- Uneven skin tone
- Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation
- Sun spots
- Brown spots
- Acne scars
- Age-related spots
How many treatments before I should expect to see results?
A difference can be observed after the very first treatment. However, depending on the issue you want to target, and how advanced it is, your technician will be able to recommend exactly how many treatments are recommended for YOUR skin.
Will I need special care after a Skin Lightening facial?
After your treatment, your risk of getting a sunburn is increased. This is due to the treatment exposing younger skin, which would normally be covered by the top layer of dead skin cells. Therefore, the use of a powerful sunscreen is strongly recommended (min SPF30). Furthermore, it is always recommended to continue to care for your skin at home. Your technician will be able to advise you on what to add/remove from your skin routine.
Who can benefit from Skin Lightening facial?
Skin Lightening facial is recommended for anyone wishing to even out their skin tone, men and women, of all skin tones. However, people suffering from rosacea or severe acne should avoid it.
