Laser Skin Whitening is a procedure wherein short pulsed concentrated beams of light are targeted to remove irregular, unwanted or damaged skin and stimulate the growth of new skin cells thereby giving the person a lighter skin tone.
Laser resurfacing, Abrasion and Laser peel are other terms used for this skin treatment.
Laser treatment is used to effectively treat various hyper-pigmentation problems like chloasma, melasma, age spots, liver spots and uneven dark skin due to the overproduction of melanin.
Lasers are used to remove the top most layers of the skin & a part of the underlying sub layer by vaporizing the affected tissues.non-ablative lasers penetrate the skin without damaging the skin surface, which aids faster healing and recovery.it is targeted at stimulating the body to replace old affected tissues with healthy new ones, thereby resulting in fairer, radiant skin.
By breaking down a part of the melanin into microscopic particles. This is later expelled by the body through its natural defense, circulation and excretory systems.Due to the concentrated beam of light, the melanin initially forms a thin dark crust on the skin, which will gradually flake or shed with time, depending on the area and the intensity of the melanin content.
Usually 3-5 laser sessions would be required to see some visible results.
