Skin Whitening Treatment

Everyone wants to look their best at all time, and your skin plays an important role in that overall look! Your skin has to look bright, radiant, supple and youthful, but in the world that we live in today, our skin is subjected to a range of problems – from constant exposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun to the chemicals in the so called ‘skin care’ products, from dirt and dust to aging. All this leads to the dullness of the skin as well as a general darkening.

In the recent past, there have been several new procedures, that not only help improve skin tone and complexion, but also lighten your skin. From chemical peels and microdermabrasion to laser treatments and skin lightening injections, there are so many procedure to choose from and with the help of an experienced surgeon and a reputed skin lightening treatment clinic, you should be able to get the skin you want!

What is Skin Whitening?

There is actually an inherent difference between skin whitening and skin lightning – while the former is normally a bleaching procedure to lighter the skin tone, the latter uses medical techniques to even out skin tone and restore the natural colour.

The idea behind both procedures is:
  • To lighten the skin tone
  • Fade the complexion to make it look whiter
  • Even out skin tone
  • Restore the natural colour of the skin
  • Reset the skin setting to before hyperpigmentation has set in

Before signing up for any skin lightening treatment in Ludhiana, it is important that you understand that not only will the procedure vary from person to person, the results will also vary from person to person.

Common Myth & Facts

  • Myth: Altering the concentration of melanin is dangerous.
  • Fact: If the procedure has been done with care and precision, there is absolutely nothing to worry about.
  • Myth: The usage of harsh chemicals will alter your skin permanently
  • Fact: Yet again, when the procedure has been done by experienced hands, and with the right amount and mixture of chemicals is used, the results will be extraordinary.

Treatments available for Skin Whitening in Ludhiana

When you are looking to get your skin lightening or skin whitening treatment, it is necessary that you choose a clinic that is reputed and has experienced doctors working with them. In addition, they should also offer a wide range of procedures to choose from, including:

Chemical Peels

Once your skin has been analysed, a combination of chemicals will be applied to your skin, which would have been cleansed carefully. The chemicals will gently remove the top layer of the skin that normally contain dead skin cells, dirt, pollution and other contaminants. Once this layer is removed, it will reveal new skin beneath that is healthier, cleaner and lighter.


This is a popular procedure to clear skin up and improve skin tone and complexion. With the help of a device that has small spike like structures, the top layer of the skin is abrased, which forces the body to naturally heal the skin. This procedure can help reduce pigmentation and lighten skin naturally.

Laser Treatments

A concentrated beam of light is directed on the skin, and that helps minimise the melanin build-up inside the skin. When this happens, the immune system of the body kicks in and removes whatever is remaining of the pigments. This leads to the skin becoming brighter and lighter and younger looking too.

Skin Lightening Injections

Containing glutathione, a skin lightening agent that naturally helps reduce the production of melanin in the skin, these injections are becoming rapidly popular. However, it is important that you get these injections administered only at a licensed clinic and at the hands of a qualified and experienced doctor, because too much glutathione can cause harm to the skin.

If the procedure has been done at a reputed clinic and at the hands of an experienced professional, facial and skin lightening treatment is extremely safe and truly effective. It is imperative that you choose a place like AK Clinics for your procedure, because this is where you will get the best treatment and access to the best medical professionals.

It depends on which type of procedure has been chosen for you or by you – for instance, if you are getting a chemical peel, it will remove the top layer of the skin and reveal younger, better looking skin underneath. However, with laser procedures, there is no ‘peeling’ of the skin.

The skin is constantly ‘growing’; skin is always renewing itself and the melanin content in your body will not change. This means that over time, your skin will go back to being the natural colour and you might need a treatment session to get lighter skin again.

This is something that will depend on a range of factors, including your skin type, the natural colouring of your skin and how much melanin is naturally present in your skin. After conducting a thorough examination of your skin, an experienced professional will be able to suggest the best facial and skin lightening treatment for you and your skin.

The idea behind any and all skin whitening treatments is this – the top most layer of the skin is what is subjected to makeup, chemicals, dirt, pollution and so on. Just beneath that layer, is the next layer of skin, which is healthier, cleaner, younger looking and also fairer. Unless the melanin content in your skin is naturally very high, a few sessions should improve the colour and complexion of your skin.

Skin whitening treatment cost will be based on the treatment chosen – so while a chemical peel could cost you anywhere between 1500 to 5000 INR, a laser treatment will cost you more. Skin lightening injections will cost anywhere between 6000 to 60,000 INR.

You will be asked to not wear makeup on the day of the procedure and you might be asked to wash your face several times a day with non-soap formula. You will be asked to avoid sunlight as much as possible and keep your skin protected. In certain cases, you might be asked to avoid or replace certain medications.

Irrespective of your skin whitening treatment in Ludhiana and how well it has been done, there will be precautions that you will have to take. For instance, you will be asked to avoid direct exposure to sunlight for a few days. You will not be allowed to apply any makeup or use any form of chemicals on your skin. You will be asked to use certain medicated creams or facewashes and it is imperative that you stick to the guidelines given to you by your doctor.
