What is Skin Whitening?
Skin whitening is a procedure that helps reduce the amount of melanin pigment in the skin which makes your complexion whiter after treatment. Darker colors have higher levels of melanin and therefore the amount of melanin determines a person’s skin color. Melanin is produced by cells called melanocytes.
The amount of melanin in a person’s skin depends on the genetic makeup. Pigmentation is caused by exposure to sunlight, damaged skin and exposure to skin chemical products. Most of the time people resort to skin whitening methods to solve skin problems like freckles, age spots, scars, moles, pimples, birthmarks and people who want to get fair skin, especially those with darker skin color.
