Skin Whitening Treatment in Delhi is a process by which a person tries to make his/her skin lighter. Natural melanin, a pigment of the skin, makes the skin darker and protects it from ultraviolet radiation. Skin lightening products or creams can either block or reduce production of melanin in the body.

The most common method for making the skin whiter is using chemical peels. In this type of treatment, chemicals are applied on the surface of your skin to remove outer layers. Depending on the depth of your peel, you may have some redness that will go away within a few days. You will be advised to apply sunscreen with SPF 30 after a chemical peel treatment because your skin will be more sensitive to sun exposure.

Skin whitening products containing glutathione, kojic acid, ascorbic acid or other ingredients can be used at home. Apply the product every day for faster results. There are also other treatments you can consider including laser therapy to lighten sunspots and freckles. Other options are chemical peels, microdermabrasion, bleaching creams or cosmetic surgery to lighten skin color.

Studies show that people with lighter skin have a lower risk of developing melanoma cancer because they have reduced pigment which reduces their susceptibility to the sun's ultraviolet rays.

People with lighter skin have a better self-esteem.

Here's what you need to know about Skin Whitening Treatment in Delhi:

It is not a permanent procedure and the lighter skin will fade in a few weeks or months after you stop using the product or treatment. If you use skin bleaching creams for an extended period of time, your skin may become sensitive to sunlight and damage from sun exposure can be increased too. Use sunscreen with SPF 30 when going outside after getting chemical peels, microdermabrasion or laser therapy. 

You should avoid making direct contact with heat sources such as heating pads and hot water bottles since they can make your treated areas worse. Talk to your dermatologist if you notice any unusual changes in your skin.

There are many beauty products available in the market today for people who wish to have lighter or whiter skin. There are chemicals used which can be harmful if applied on the body, so you need to research first before using these products. If you ask dermatologists, they would advise against using them because these products may cause allergies and other irritations that will rather worsen your skin than whiten it.

The truth is that dermatologists cannot really tell you not to do it but just suggest that you consult with your doctor first since there's no conclusive proof yet about the safety of these products for our health especially long term usage.
