Skin Lightening and Color Correction

Skin lightening and color correction are usually done by bleaching, chemical peels, microdermabrasion or alpha hydroxy acid treatments. Skin lighteners work by reducing the amount of melanin in the skin.

The alpha hydroxy treatment consists of lactic or glycolic acid, which induces collagen growth in the skin and exfoliates the dead skin. Chemical peels are used in cases, where immediate and more severe treatment is required. Using acids like salicylic acid, the skin is cleared of dead skin and dark spots, resulting in a lighter, blemish-free skin. Microdermabrasion uses crystals and suction pump to exfoliate the skin. This is a clean, non-invasive process and is effective in skin lightening and color correction treatments.
