Skin Whitening

Laser skin whitening, also called a laser peel, is a non invasive cosmetic treatment which uses short bursts of laser light to lighten skin and remove dark blemishes. Hand-held laser emitter is used to remove the surface layer of the skin. The emitter is moved back and forth across the skin causing the laser light to destroy the melanin-producing cells within it. The process results for the skin’s natural pigment production process to be stopped or slowed so the skin gradually becomes lighter. Laser skin whitening treatment can also work wonders in reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Laser resurfacing also improves the appearance of sun damage, acne scars, age spots and other common skin issues.
