When exposed to the sun the skin turns dark due to the increase in the melanin pigments.There is nothing to worry about getting tanned asit occurs naturally after sun exposure. We use different methods to lighten your skin :
- We use a specific kind of laser for this treatment called a quality-switched laser or Q-switched laser which is used to lighten skin. In this procedure a beam of light at wavelengths of 532 nanometers (nm) or 755 nm is applied to the skin. This high-intensity energy source is absorbed by the water, hemoglobin and melanin in the skin. The absorption destroys the dark spots and lightens the skin. Small dark spots can be removed in a few minutes. Larger areas may take more than 30 minutes. We have used this technology in our clinic at huge success rates with great patient satisfaction.
- Chemical peels give the skin an even tone which in turn gives the skin a vibrant and glowing complexion. Chemical peels can be used to treat a variety of skin ailments such as acne and dark spots and pigmentation. At Dr. Mushtaq’s clinic we use a deep chemical peel called Glycolic peel which lightens visible discolorations in the skin. Glycolic acid which is derived from certain fruits and plants assists in the skin treatment by stimulating new collagen and skin growth while allowing dead skin cells to fall off naturally It penetrates very deeply and quickly treating many layers of the skin at once. The treatment is administered in two phases of which the first involves the application of a facial mask by an aesthetic specialist. The mask gently peels away the top layer of pigmented skin which is washed off after 8 – 12 hours. Some clients notice an immediate improvement in skin clarity as soon as the mask is removed. During the second phase the client continues with the maintenance treatment at home according to the instructions of our skincare professionals.
