Skin tanning and darkening are the most prevalent worldwide among many skin issues. That is because skin tanning can lead to premature skin ageing, dull skin, hyperpigmentation, skin texture change, uneven skin tone, skin allergies, sunburn and more. These issues not only damage the skin but also a person’s self-esteem and confidence. Welona’s skin-lightening treatments help restore your natural skin tone. Let’s first understand what causes skin tanning and darkening:

Causes of Skin Tanning and Darkening

Skin Tanning

When exposed to UV (Ultraviolet) rays from the sun or sources like tanning beds, tanning is a natural skin response. Sun exposure typically leads to overproduction of melanin – a pigment that gives colour to your skin, hair and eyes. Melanin overproduction darkens the skin, followed by other skin issues. Moreover, chronic sun exposure can cause persistent skin darkening and permanent damage to the skin. 

Skin Darkening

Apart from sun exposure, there are other causes of skin darkening. Hormonal changes during pregnancy can cause Melasma, a type of hyperpigmentation in a symmetrical pattern. Melasma causes the skin to darken. Additionally, inflammation (PIH), certain medications, medical conditions, ageing, overuse of chemical products, genetics and environmental pollutants can also darken your skin.    

Understanding the underlying cause of skin tanning and darkening is essential to treat it effectively. Dermatologists at Welona can diagnose the cause and recommend suitable treatments for excellent results. Here are some skin-lightening treatments at Welona that can improve your skin’s health and restore its natural glow. 

Welona’s Skin Lightening Treatments 

Skin lightening treatments at Welona are designed to lighten the skin using topical treatments or minimally invasive procedures to reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation and improve skin tone. Some of the skin-lightening treatments include:

Topical Agents

Based on the severity of the skin’s condition, dermatologists at Welona will suggest treatments. They might offer topical treatments such as creams, serums and lotions for less severe skin damage. Some ingredients that help with skin lightening typically include Hydroquinone, Glycolic Acid, Kojic Acid, Vitamin C, Arbutin, Niacinamide and Retinoids. These powerful ingredients fade dark spots in a few weeks and restore the skin’s natural tone.  

Chemical Peel

Peels are among the oldest and most trusted skin lightening treatments. In this treatment, dermatologists apply a chemical solution to your face, which removes the top layer of the skin. The skin that appears after the peel is smoother, lighter and younger-looking. Three types of chemical peels are Light Peels, Medium Peels, and Deep Peels. Experts will suggest a suitable treatment after a thorough skin analysis. This skin-lightening treatment also helps increase hydration in the skin and stimulate collagen production apart from addressing skin imperfections and scars.  

Laser Toning (Q Switch Laser)

Laser toning is a widely recommended skin lightening treatment across the world by renowned dermatologists. It is an excellent non-invasive treatment that uses laser beams to improve the skin’s texture and appearance. Welona’s experts use Q-switch laser Nd: YAG, a non-ablative laser – safe for all skin types. The laser machine targets the affected area in a calculated time, which helps brighten the skin, stimulates collagen production, and rejuvenates the skin from within. Additionally, there is no downtime, and it causes no discomfort during the treatment. 

Fractional CO2 Laser

Although Fractional CO2 laser is primarily suitable for deep wrinkles and fine lines, it is an excellent skin lightening treatment, especially for severe sun damage, acne, and hyperpigmentation. This skin resurfacing treatment uses a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, which creates microthermal treatment zones. The laser is applied only on those zones without affecting the entire surrounding area of the skin. The treatment can tighten, brighten, and lighten the skin. Additionally, it removes the pigmented spots, improves skin’s texture, boosts collagen production and fights signs of ageing. 

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy

IPL is a non-invasive photo facial or photorejuvenation treatment. It uses high-intensity light pulses to reduce skin darkening and pigmented skin. Your dermatologist will use an IPL device that will emit a range of light wavelengths. These wavelengths penetrate the second layer of your skin without troubling the top layer. The light waves target melanin or haemoglobin. The light energy gets converted into heat energy that helps to damage the targeted cells. The process reduces pigmentations, treats acne, and can also help with unwanted hair removal

Microneedling Radiofrequency (MNRF)

MNRF is one of the latest and most innovative skin lightening treatments that combines micro-needling and radiofrequency energy. The treatment has the ability to address various skin issues without much downtime. Moreover, it rejuvenates skin, promotes collagen production, lightens the skin and tightens the skin without any invasive procedure. Welona experts will use fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries on your skin’s surface. When the needles penetrate the skin, the radiofrequency energy heats the underlying layers, produces elastin and stimulates collagen. You can experience fewer wrinkles, improved texture, and clear skin with MNRF within a few sessions. 

Oh, My Glow Drip

IV (Intravenous) Drip treatment has taken the beauty industry by storm. Renowned dermatologists worldwide suggest this skin lightening treatment for clients needing instant results. Welona provides this exclusive treatment as “Oh My Glow Drip”. The treatment feeds the skin with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other skin-enriching nutrients through an IV drip. The Oh My Glow Drip includes Vitamin C, Glutathione, and Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), which helps to brighten the skin tone, reduce hyperpigmentation, promote collagen, neutralise free radicals and control melanin production.
